16" Skandia Shelves
Made to last for years
I recently reconfigured and added to a Skandia bookcase that I have owned for over 20 years. I appreciate that this quality product is still available from The Container store. It is sturdy, has clean lines, and I enjoy the light-colored wood that slowly takes on a golden patina.

Great quality and flexible
We bought our first components more than a decade ago for our previous house. Since then, we have moved and remodeled. We've taken the shelves apart and rebuilt them four times to accommodate our changing needs. I have only great things to say about flexibility, durability, and the ability of these shelves to suffer the wear and tear of our chaotic lives. Also, after a decade, the shelves are still completely flat despite 8 years with double stacked books in a damp basement.
Logging on to buy more today.

Flexible, easy to assemble
We first purchased Skandia shelving in 2005. Since then we have modified the configuration and added new pieces several times. Our current use of Skandia shelving includes as a desk, media console, and bookshelf. (Container Store no longer sells the desk component.)
Two people and quickly assemble any component.
I suggest spending the time to level the pieces. Purchase the cross-bars for every other unit. Use a level when attaching the cross-bars.
(One person can assemble in a crunch.)
Our original purchase was with an on-store design consultant in 2005. Now I use the buy online, pick up in store option. Container Store sent me a text message when my order arrived in the store. I called when I was driving to the store today. An employee brought everything to the car . Nice!
