White elfa dÃ©cor freestanding Home Office
Closet turned Study
I've long been a fan of The Container Store and Elfa products. When I moved 3 years ago, there was very little closet space in our apartment, so I purchased Elfa free-standing shelving, rods, and drawers to contain my clothing in a polished and streamlined way, albeit in our living room. I figured I would find a way to reuse at least some of the products when we relocated. When The Container Store catalogue arrived this January, days after we moved into our new space (thankfully with more plentiful and appropriately-placed closets), I thumbed through the pages, looking for inspiration. I landed on this image of the study with two desks and great shelving. I figured I'd put the much acclaimed evolutionary and adaptable Elfa to the test. I managed to use many of the former parts and saved the others for my next project. The proof is in the pictures and I am once again a happy customer. I enjoy the satisfaction of a good DIY project and assembled both versions myself in a few hours. I would highly recommend and will purchase Elfa products again.

I'm a real estate professional and real estate comes with a world of documents, files, notes, and a ton of other odd ball items that you have to keep up with. I was drowning in it. Next: You've all seen the clunky, typical office. Large chunky furniture that is cumbersome and makes a small office seem claustrophobic. Enter solution: The Elfa Office. Versatile, flexible, organized, clean, spacious. After a little customization, with features to fit my needs, the unit was perfect. Installation is always a breeze. Now there is plenty of floor space and my clients are more relaxed. There's no desk separating me from them. No barrier to conversation. In real estate, conversation is important. It's how I figure out how to solve my customer's problem. And since I've solved my organization problem with Elfa, now I can focus on theirs. My home is an Elfa advertisement, as well. When my clients want more examples of how Elfa can help solve their organization issues with a new home, I take them to mine. They can see the endless possibilities, with Elfa. Closets, pantry, laundry, home office, craft areas, even the swimming pool room has it's own Elfa system.

Homeschool organized at last!
After years of stuffing reference materials, computer, printer, binders, folders, supplies, etc. pretty much anywhere, none of us could stand not finding any of it again! With Elfa designers, we designed a four-column, 5-shelf w/desk space, free-standing system to hold everything from art supplies to printer to PC to day-to-day binders, boxes, books, papers, reference books, CDs, DVDs, hole punch, etc. Easy access under legs to clean floor. Conclusion: saved our sanity and most importantly my temper.
