Â by Rhebachorn 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AroundTheBlock 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LoveFreeShipping 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 5Â by mBeth 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Noirchat 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by satisfiedBuyer 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by melrowgo 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.

Â by Bean 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).
