InterMetroÂ® Garment Rack with Cotton Canvas Cover
When I found myself renting an ultra modern apartment with no closets I was worried I would need to spend big $ on a freestanding wardrobe. Then I found this beauty on a search. I bought two.
They are easy to assemble - I did it alone. They look great in my new apartment. And the price is really reasonable, especially compared to the alternatives at Ikea and others.

Great extra closet solution!
I love the Metro line. This closet is easy to assemble, VERY sturdy, and holds a LOT of clothing!
The only downside: the canvas cover is several shades darker than one I purchased 6 months earlier.
P.S. The online order/in-store pickup is WONDERFUL!

Convenient Extra Storage
I have a small house with little storage space, so I bought this to keep coats & seasonal clothing in the garage. It's easy to move, easy to put together (easier with two people) and is very sturdy.
The shelf on top holds luggage, and the bottom shelf is great for shoes & boots.

All the info you'll need to make your decision...
Since I always get as much information as I can on items before I buy them, and compare their pros and cons, I thought I would share the information I gathered with you. This review compares the Metro and InterMetro (with or without Canvas Cover) Mobile Garment Racks to help make it easier to choose between them. I inquired about both products through Customer Service at The Container Store for exact specifications, and also found that they come with a guarantee in case they donâ¿¿t support the weight you store on them. Here are the differences:
The Metro garment rack costs more because it is commercial grade - the steel is a thicker gauge than the InterMetro. The InterMetro is designed for residential use, but Customer Service stated that it is still a sturdy choice.
The InterMetro has 3 choices of finish for the frame â¿¿ Silver, Black and White. Both racks provide a chrome plated hanging rod (no matter what finish you choose), and the option to adjust and add shelves.
Neither racks provide support weight limits for the hanging rod, only the shelves. The Metro can support 800 pounds on each shelf, and the InterMetro can support 500 pounds on each shelf.
The size of the Metro is 18 in deep x 36 in long x 66 9/16 in high. The size of the InterMetro is 18 in deep x 48 in long x 77 1/2 in high. Basically, the InterMetro provides a foot (12 inches) of extra hanging space, and about 10 inches of additional height.
Iâ¿¿m choosing the InterMetro since it is guaranteed, I need the extra hanging space, and Iâ¿¿m 5â¿¿ 2â¿ (62 inches tall) so my items are not that long.
I hope this helps make your decision easier!
