5-Bin Storage Tower
nice idea but...
After a few weeks of use here is my review.
The construction was not what I had envisioned. Not adequate for even moderately heavy drawer items. I have some bundled computer cables in one of the draws and it seems weighed down and the draw it slightly misaligned from the weight. The drawer themselves do operate independently either. It seems I open one and they all iopen. I am constantly trying to keep them aligned when I close them as well. As soon as I close one another moves open. Its a slight opening but enough to through off the symmetry of the aesthetic which is counter to the whole point of these. The storage is also not very good. The description claims it can accommodate standard letter paper well. Not true. the dimensions leave things cramped and I find the draw sizes impractical for the things I want to put in them. I bought this to replace a similar thin storage unit in my office and I can only fit 3\4 of the contents despite larger dimensions. Its also difficult to organize things in these draws. I find myself contemplating buying even more "stuff" for drawer organization. Regarding paper storage. The weakness of the single hinge of the drawers makes it impractical to support the weight of more than a few pamphlets or small notebooks. Forget a ream of paper. I still like the look and the small footprint. With some reorganization it may have a place in my office. Perhaps my review will change after some trial and error. Unfortunately this was meant to a practical exchange for an older storage system.
One suggestion on future design would be variable sized drawers from shallow to deep.

Cute and Different
I love the storage tower. I use it as a nightstand and store my books in it, instead of a book shelf. It is neat and small. I love the way the shelves rotate on an axis. This is a sleek and modern piece.

I have 2 of these towers. One in my kitchen and one in my office/spare bedroom. They are slim, with a small footprint, but hold a decent amount of things.

A super purchase
I use this in my art studio and it contains many of my art supplies. It is exceptionally well made.
