super sturdy Our first set of Skandia from the Container store was purchased in1991. We have broken it down to move 4 times. It has survived where many pieces of good furniture did not. My Mom always said, "Three moves is like a fire." But the Skandia is, as I see it, indestructible. It also is flexible as in able to adjust to new surroundings. We have added many times to our original purchase. August 22, 2014
Skandia Shelving is high Quality and sturdy I highly recommend this shelving to anyone searching for value for their dollar. The container store has become my new favorite store for taking care of all of my organizational and storage needs. March 10, 2014
Excellent, flexible, no longer suitable for books I've been using Skandia shelves for at least a decade and a half, and my bookshelves have traveled with me through several moves. I love them. An assembled shelf is sturdy and can hold a great deal of weight (though the wood is soft and gouges easily), but Skandia shelving's chief value derives from its flexibility. The usefulness of shelves that can be disassembled, transported, reassembled, and reconfigured is hard to overstate â¿¿ these are shelves that are potentially adaptable to a lifetime of varied uses and situations. I've personally used my shelves to house a large and growing book collection, but, unfortunately, I can't recommend them to anybody who doesn't already own a set of Skandia shelves. This is because the Container Store no longer carries Skandia fill panels or Skandia wire bookends, so if you don't want books spilling out the sides, your only option is to use weighted bookends of the sort that you might use on a mantelpiece. This isn't a serious option for a large book collection. Another concern is that Skandia components are rarely stocked in stores, so you'll need to order them online. For reasons that aren't clear to me, you can sometimes arrange a store pickup and you sometimes can't, so sometimes you'll need to pay a substantial shipping charge. And finally, the shelves are usually backordered, so you may wait weeks or even months before your order is fulfilled. I'm currently waiting on an order that I placed a few weeks ago, and it has already missed its original ship date. February 28, 2014
Good shelves I purchased a big part of these shelves about 20 years ago...but never got around to finishing out the shelving. So glad Container Store has continued to carry this line of shelving. I was able to buy extras this many years later and complete my set. Good sturdy shelving, I have textbooks and yearbooks on it. October 5, 2012
