6-Shelf Iron Folding Tower


Product Information

We've joined the old-world charm of wrought iron with contemporary functionality to create our Iron Folding Tower. Designed to our specifications for economical, attractive storage of books, magazines, tchotchkes, plants, canisters and cookbooks, or toiletries and cosmetics, our Tower is an unbeatable value. Made of cast iron with an attractive, neutral pewter finish, each Tower is pre-assembled - no tools are required. Easy to transport and store, it folds flat when not in use. Fold one out to create a wealth of storage space in the den, library, dorm room, kitchen, bath, or bedroom. For outdoor use, apply a coating of a protective sealer like Rustoleum.

  • Folds flat when not in use
  • Compact footprint
  • Each unit is pre-assembled



  • 12-3/4" x 11-1/4" x 68-5/8" h

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love your store!! This shelf is a must-have for just about everyone. It is attractive, fits in any little corner or cubby where you could use a little extra storage. The setup takes no time at all - just take it out of box, fold down the shelves and there you have it!. I wish I had more time to spend in your store. You have so many neat things!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supplements other products of this series I have four wide six-shelf foldable bookcases and one low four-shelf bookcase that I use for CD's, all in my bedroom. And, there was just enough space to fit in this tower. Its airy, narrow, open, streamlined look adds grace to the whole room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great economical shelving I love these iron folding shelves. I have this one and a few others in different sizes and they are great for any room of the house, media, bathroom, etc. I think they are super attractive and simple. Really great, spare design that goes with any decor. They take no time at all to assemble and can be stored easily if not in use or for moving. I have had them for years. Really a fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Little Bookcase Around... I bought the folding tower for my home and used it to store cookbooks in a small but tall niche space in my kitchen. I gave it to my son when he moved into small apartment - another perfect fit. I soon regretted it...because I missed the extremely sturdy, portable - no tools required for assembly (a winner for me!) - tower! I left California shortly thereafter, only to find no Container Store in my new state. When I found it at the on-line store, I immediately ordered another one - and am again, using it for book storage office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit This is a beautiful addition to our home! The attractive cast iron shelving has a natural pewter finish which accents any wall. It looks gorgeous against our exposed brick. it is pre-assembled and no tools are needed-- the shelves fold down easily to latch into place. it will be easy to move and to store. This is the greatest purchase we have made, and so worth the money! I recommend this product 100%, I feel that it is strong and will last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy & No Tools Required I received two of the Iron Tower's last week. LOVE THEM. I have them in my home office/craft room. Great for small spaces. My only wish would be they made the shelves deeper. It's a keeper for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with quality I am SO pleased with the quality of these shelves. Sturdy, well-made, easy to set up, easy to clean, and great to look at. Had shopped around at a lot of different places for just what I needed; almost succumbed to a cheaper shelving unit because of the price difference. But when I went to the brick-and-mortar store of the cheaper unit and examined it, there was no question where I headed to make my purchase...The Container Store. I liked it SO much, regardless of double the price (no, that doesn't mean TCS was overpriced at all) of the cheaper one, I BOUGHT TWO OF THEM! They are so handsome, fit so well, and I am completely thrilled with my purchase! And the store rep helped me put these tall units in my little car, knew exactly how to make them fit for the trip home...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Portable Shelf While shopping in the store, this shelf caught my eye. After examining it, I was excited that the measurements would fit in my closet. I decided to purchase two of the towers and one of the six shelf bookcases. They fit perfectly in my closest and look so nice I hate to close the closet door. When company comes over, I show everyone my nicely organized shelving. The units are very heavy duty and super easy to install (just open the box, put the unit where you want it to go, and open it up). One word of caution, when opening up the unit, be careful a shelf does not slam down on your fingers. The sides open outward to the left and right and then each shelf rests on a latch. I didn't realize this was how it worked so my finger got pinched and a little spot of blood showed up. Great units though. Heavy to carry in the box but totally worth the pinched finger. Went back to store and bought two more towers for my other closet. Love you Container Store !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in small spaces! A few years ago I bought this product to fit into an unused space in my pantry. It was super sturdy and great to house small kitchen appliances that would otherwise clutter up the countertops. I have since moved from that large house with tons of storage. That tower is in my long-term storage, waiting for my new home to be built in another town. I recently bought another one for a home that I am renting for use in a tiny laundry room. It is super compact, but heavy and sturdy enough to be used for large detergent jugs and overflow storage for cleaning items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for a small space Got this for a normal NYC bathroom - less than 5x7' in size. I searched for a long time to find something that would fit the only wall space available, and still let me reach the light switch. This was perfect. I'm very happy with it. I got two media centers at the same time for the living room, and they have worked out well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution to Tricky Storage Problem We needed additional shelf space in our office area, but didn't have the floor space. We did have a very small utility closet that wasn't used smartly (never used ironing board, etc). This shelf unit fit perfect in this closet and now allows us to have lots of filing and storage space. Also, very easy to assemble!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Nice shelving. easy to set up since its one piece. just fold out the sides and drop the shelves. This one fits perfectly into a small corner of the bathroom and looks great. I have another size in the bedroom and a bigger one in the living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best compact shelving for small spaces I purchased this tower for a very small corner of an even smaller bathrooom. It is extremely sturdy and well made, and attractive as well. I bought some baskets to contain my cosmetics and hair products, put them on the shelves, and voila, no more clutter. It exceeded my expectations since I'd previously purchased a similar looking tower from a national retailer and ended up returning it as it was flimsy and poorly made. This is a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits everywhere This shelving unit is great as it has decently deep shelves for its size and is narrow enough to fit into lots of different nooks. When I moved I easily found another space for it because its size is so useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small spaces I moved from an apartment with built-ins in every room to a rental with none. Thus I needed to add a lot of bookshelves. The new apartment has many corner niches and this tower fits perfectly in these otherwise unused spaces. It is ready to work right out of the box and is very sturdy. I bought two and was so pleased with them that I plan to buy two more. Good quality product and good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for tiny My husband is the maintenance manager for a town home association. In 2011 a truck lost control in the rain and skidded off the street outside the community and destroyed their guardhouse. They elected to move the original location back and used a tiny prefab building with a self-contained bathroom for the guards. For months and months my husband looked for a very small freestanding. This is for men in that itty bitty bathroom. Maintenance is NOT a priority with these guards, so it needed to be durable as well as small. This unit fits perfect and now holds cleaning supplies (LOL), paper towels, & toilet paper. They are trilled to get stuff off the floor and out from under the desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bathroom Shelving and More This six shelf metal unit is attractive, fits in a small area, and is easy to assemble. I saw it in the store, checked our bathroom at home, knew it would fit and ordered it. I love the lines and the efficiency of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second one I have bought Container Store calls this a "tower." I call it a narrow bookcase that fits perfectly in odd, narrow spaces for people who need every inch of space to store books. I already owned one, and since moving to a small apartment, have bought a second one. It is strong, easy to set up, and ideal for placing books where you need them in small spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super! I love this shelf. I use it in the kitchen to display cookbooks and keep my most frequently used spices in a basket on one of the shelves. There is even some room for a chachki or two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's just what we needed We have moved into a temporary rental, and had a huge need for storage in the kitchen. This fit perfectly and gave us the storage needed due to limited cabinets. When we move to our permanent house, we are going to buy the full set, I believe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect I searched high and low for a very narrow shelving unit for my guest bathroom. Everything I looked at was so flimsy and cheap, until I found this. It fits perfectly, has lots of shelf room and best of all is really sturdy. I love it.

Is the pewter finish a powder coating?

Is the pewter finish a powder coating or a paint?
Asked by: Curiousyo
There is neither a powder or paint coating, the pewter finish is the natural color of the iron used in the shelf.
