Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional, durable, lifetime furniture I bought some Skandia shelving for my apartment probably 15 years ago. I recently moved to a larger place, and thought I would expand on the original setup. While the new wood is a little lighter, the new piece still looks great. Very happy I purchased these then and now. The only downside is the Container Store used to offer a lot more accessories for their base Skandia shelving. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skandia is the best! I'm so happy that the Container Store continues to carry this product. It's wonderful. March 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by best purchase decision ever I bought the skandia shelving system in 2001 when I lived in San Antonio (tall and short uprights, 12"x40" shelves). I'm in the Air Force so I have moved around a lot since then...into different houses, townhouses, and condos...all with different floor plans. Over the years I have set up my bookshelves in different configurations to fit my different living spaces and I have gradually purchased more shelves and uprights. The decision to buy this adjustable shelving system was the best furniture purchase decision I have ever made...I'm very pleased with the look and strength of my bookshelves. September 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Skandia 12in shelves - amazing We have been using Skandia for my son's room since he was born - we have been able to reconfigure about every 3 to 5 years to adapt to him growing up - the wood ages very well - very sturdy - still amazing after nearly 20 years. January 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by bit pricey but worth investing Are you willing to invest and want long lasting? It may seem like a lot but get it. But the computer desk is a bit unstable. As shelves it's nice. The colors change over time so try to get all of wooden parts at the same time. May 25, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Over 10 years old and still looking good My husband and I created a wall of shelves for our den using Skandia shelving, including a L-shaped desk. They've been there for well over 10 years now and they still look and work great. I like the open look and feel they give, and they're super sturdy. The great thing about them is we can disassemble them and take them with us if we move, or we can give them to one of our sons later on. Well-made product. May 17, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Durable and versatile The Skandia shelving units are wonderful because of their versatiliby. I have moved 4 times since I bought the units and have been able to re-configure them seamlessly into each new dwelling. They are durable and are easy to break down/set-up. I use them as bookshelves. I highly recommend the strong, attractive and useful Skandia system (sold as component parts). April 12, 2010

Community Q&A

What length are the corner shelves and are they still available?

I have a bunch of Skandia shelves in storage and want to use them in my new office. The problem is that storage is 600 miles away! I cannot find the shelves listed anywhere. Does anyone know how long they are? It would sure help me with planning my office in our new home.
Asked by: SouthTexasRealtor

What type of finish is used on the Skandia shelves? Does it have an odor?

Asked by: aepm
Our Skandia Shelves are finished with an odor-less, water-based UV coating.

Can you apply a stain to the Skandia products, or are they treated (such as with a wax finish) so as not to take a stain?

Asked by: Wyatt8632
Our Skandia products do have a clear finish on them, so you will not be able to stain the wood.
