White ConnectionsÂ® Uprights
Exactly what I wanted
Bought the two smaller uprights and three white shelves for my daughters room. I wanted something pretty and useful! I loved this look but wasn't sure it was going to be sturdy, it is! I love that it is a bookshelf that doesn't add bulk to the space. I love that I can add a desk when she is ready and more shelves and even more colors!! Exactly what I wanted!!

Attractive and Flexible Stand-alone Shelving
The Connections Uprights are meant to be used with the associated shelves, and would be inadvisable without them. The design of this product is clever, with a number of shelves slotting into two uprights, which are in turn connected only by means of these shelves. The result is very attractive and useful, as well as flexible in terms of where the shelves can be placed by the buyer. Observations: (1) For stability, you should use more than just two or three shelves. I estimate that four shelves might be a good minimum number, with two or more nearer the floor. (2) The unit comes with wall-anchors, which are advisable if you have small children or large dogs. (3) I wouldn't ever use this system as a room-divider - it needs to be against a wall, again for stability.
Overall, I'm very pleased. One issue: these were shipped (not bought in the store) and the packaging was poor - two shelves were damaged in transit and had to be replaced (uprights survived OK). So I would advise buying this unit in the store, and preferably carting it home yourself.
