Birch & Platinum elfa dÃ©cor freestanding Study Zone
Has transformed the room! Has held up well 1 year.
Purchase this for teen daughter's room over 1 year ago and it is perfect for workspace & organization. Our old house is uneven but the installers (well worth paying for CS installation# did a great & careful job. When it vibrated against the walls when she typed on her laptop, CS gave us additional bolts to anchor it. One minor issue: daughter is short so has to raise chair #Eurobungee which we also love) to type - and the chair can bump against lowest shelf, which has marred it a bit.

Freestanding Desk System
I am NOT a DIY or handy person, so I was hesitant about buying this system as a surprise for my husband's cloffice (his office is in our large walk-in closet). I was able to put this unit together ALL BY MYSELF in a few hours and it looks great and keeps him organized. Very happy with the purchase!

Best desk on the market
After going through multiple wood desks that either warp, get scratched, or discolor after a few years. I knew I had to find a new setup. Went to container store and this elfa product caught my eye. I build it online with a CS employee and assembled it at my house. It took about an hour but it was well worth it. This desk is my #1 choice for a small/medium office/bedroom and for someone who wants a simplistic, elegant, and modern look. The build quality is outstanding. The frames, legs, and pegs are a scratch resistant, thick metal. It will last 20+ years easily. The shelfs are made out of a very durable and stylish particle board like material. Since everything can be adjusted height wise, you can accommodate everything to your needs. And if you somehow do manage to scratch or damage a wood shelf, just buy a new shelf, NOT a new desk like most people have to. I was also happy to see that just about every part of the desk, from the shelves to the legs were made in Europe, and not China. Typical Swedish quality and functionality. Although $1,000+ seems like a lot for a desk, you will save money by not having to buy a wood/particle board desk every 7-10 years. Also bought a bungie chair at the CS which goes great with this desk. Thank you elfa & CS.

This desk just works!
This is the most practical, suitable, workable desk that I have ever had, and I have tried a lot of desks. I love that I was able to choose the color wood and metal that fit my decor and was able to choose the components that fit my organization needs. Even though it is freestanding it is very sturdy. It was easy to assemble; however, I did make one assembling mistake, but the Container Store replaced the part I bent with no questions asked. Thank you Container Store.
