Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Exceeded my expectation! In place in less than 5 minutes. Fit the space exactly. Sturdy and beautiful addition to my home.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from None of the shelves are level It's cheaper quality than I expected, and all the shelves are lower in front than in back. Not sure if it's worth returning, or just live with crooked $100 shelf unit. The whole point was to have it be already assembled. I don't want to move the shelf hook/bracket things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a good shelf unit Before I bought this, I had several items that were on the floor or on a table or counter. Now that I bought this shelf, those items are no longer on the floor, etc. but on the shelf. That is good and an improvement to my life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a good purchase. I do like the wood folding tower, except for the small nicks I found here or there and one metal piece that holds the wood in its place is not as secured as the others . Other than this it is perfect. Eased through getting it open and done! I love the flexibility to allow a larger object to be placed in one of the sections and it's versatility to take it and go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for My Needs I was looking for a small shelving unit for a closet - the area I had available was small but I just knew if anyone had something it would be Container Store. I searched all around the store for various ways to provide what I needed. This was the perfect size. The shelves are tall enough to place my items and has created a great organized space. Highly recommend for anyone needing shelving in a small space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Space Saver Bookcase You cannot beat this bookcase for a limited space unit. Its sleek design combined with its easy assembly makes it the perfect unit for small apartments or any tight space areas. It has proven to be a durable unit as well. We are completely satisfied with the product and find that for looks, durability, and price it cannot be beat. In fact, we are getting a second unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suits the purpose for which we bought it. It is the size and function that we wanted, but we have it in our coat closet and it has made the whole closet smell moldy. I will have to remove everything from the shelves and wash it with lysol and hope the smell disappears. I realized it was the shelf unit today when we were cutting up the cardboard box that it came in and it had that same smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peasy We now have three of these towers. The towers made simple to go vertical with some things that were causing clutter in our bedroom. They are fast to set up and are constructed well. We also really appreciated how carefully they were packed, which allowed them to arrive at the store undamaged. We combined these with Bigso Oskar Boxes and Ashcraft Storage Cubes with Handles (plus we had some Large Makati Bins from a couple of years ago when we bought the first two towers). It is fun to have both variety and continuity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Tower I purchased two of these to store books, pictures and trophies. They were better than anticipated. The quality was equivalent to towers 3X the price in furniture stores. The assembly also was easier than expected. We simply unfolded them and clicked them in place. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small spaces I was surprised at the quality of this item and love the way it folds compactly (for the next time I move, which hopefully is not soon). Fits nicely in the area chosen for it. Sturdy and good value for the price (had a discount coupon which helped as well).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laundry room organization I've been looking for the correct dimensions and purchased a few items with no luck. This was perfect! A little more I wanted to spend, but worth every penny. Great quality, fits well, and looks great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality, Super Easy Setup This shelf takes literally no assembly. You take it out of the box, fold the sides out, and the shelves just fall into place. Its light enough that its easy to move around, but good quality where you're not worried it'll get dinged or start to bend. It easily fits a variety of different sized baskets for storage if you want to go that way. I bought one last year and loved it so much that I bought a second after moving to a new place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gypsy's Best Friend! Since I move around a lot - I found these folding wooden Java shelves to be the perfect size, height and they're lightweight. Easy to pack and unpack. They give the feel of antique vibes which I love/must have. The folding cubes are excellent to become a "drawer" to hold numerous of different items. It made my plain basement room into a much more homier interior. I love the fact that I can store tall books on the top shelves & mix n match of decorative items to give a personality. THANK YOU for making and carrying these wonderful shelves. Always keep them stocked, I may come for more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to put up, very handy small profile shelf got this to fit in a small space to hold bottled water and can-packs of soda. keeps everything off the floor and easy to see and reach. fully assembled, you just have to swing the sides out and fold the shelves down onto the support brackets. shelves are plenty sturdy enough for the items I am putting on them. shelves are 12.25 inch wide by 11 inch deep inside dimension so they will hold storage cubes, bins or boxes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This item is simple, clean and easy to assemble. Just remove it from the package, unfold the shelves and it's done. As it is small, it fits almost anywhere; I used it as an additional organizer to my closet and it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little shelf- easy assembly This shelf is pretty great! I ordered it for my closet, I needed something narrow to store extra clothes and boxes on and it's great. Easy to assemble and move around. It's a little wobbly so I wouldn't put anything super heavy on the top shelves but it works pretty great for clothes and lightweight items. For the record, if you are looking to order cubes to go on it, the small hyacinth cubes (10x 10x) fit perfectly!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad design This is not useful if you want to store books. There is nothing on the sides to prevent books from falling out. Waste of money.
Date published: 2016-09-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality goods Very good media storage solution, I use it to hold a number of Blu-rays that don't fit into a wire tower that holds standard size cases. The build quality is very good, the wood is solid and the finish is very good. It is plain, but you don't need a book stand or multimedia tower to be fancy, but utilitarian. It comes in a long box, I stand 5'10'' and the box comes up slightly past my chin, but by slanting it, I was able to fit it into the back seat of a taxi. On the other hand, that meant it was fully assembled. Nothing to be glued together or screwed in, no possibility of making a mistake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good purchase, excellent workmanship This shelf is made very well, arrived in good condition, and I like it. It only gets four stars, rather than five, for the following reasons: 1. Its shelves are not at the same height as the shelves for the stacking, folding, bookshelves that look like it. I put this shelf on a wall next to, and in line with, two of the stacking bookshelves. The arrangement of furniture looks dorky and unpolished because the shelves of this wood folding tower are not at the same height as the shelves of the stacking, folding bookshelves I bought previously. I did not look closely enough at the store and did not expect this. Part of this disappointment is on me. Sigh. 2. A folding tower of the same height and construction as one of the stacking, folding bookshelves would be useful, especially if two of the folding towers could have been screwed together and stacked in the same manner as two of the stacking, folding bookshelves can be stacked. This probably wouldn't be stable unless fastened to the wall, but it would allow a stair step finish to the wall of shelving, that would have fitted under a window and looked professional. These are my observations and opinions-- your mileage may vary. I do like the tower. It folds to take up little amount of space, it has solid wood shelves, and it is light enough I can haul it around by myself.

can the units be stacked?

Asked by: 131girl
No these can't be stacked. There is no mechanism to keep them safely attached to each other.

Can you take shelves out for more vertical room with taller items?

Instead of 5, can you take out 1 and use 4?
Asked by: jessn2105
Should not need to. Just fold the unneeded shelf up to it stands at the back of the space as a rear wall.. You'll lose 3/4 inch of depth

How sturdy is this without being anchored?

I don’t have small kids but want to make sure this is safe in general without being anchored to a wall and not likely to tip over. Also, for others- is there a way to anchor it if someone desires to do so?
Asked by: LAG79
This is not at all sturdy without being anchored to the wall. Even with anchoring to the wall, the unit shakes.

How much does the overall tower weigh?

Asked by: Storage8
Not too sure, but they're really lightweight and I can easily carry them up or down the stairs.
Answered by: DeafGypsy

What is the weight capacity of each shelf?

Asked by: d6457m
I don't know the specific weight capacity, but in practical terms, I believe this tower could easily be filled to capacity with DVD's or Blu-rays and not show any signs of sagging in the long term. Same if filled with paperback books. The construction is solid, so even big hardcover books should be fine, although I wouldn't fill the shelves with the Encyclopedia Brittanica or unusually weighty tomes. A mix of hardcover and paperbacks would be fine. Don't use it for any unusually heavy objects, say an anvil collection. But for standard books, tapes, CD's or other media, they should pose no problem.

Is this suitable for use in a bathroom? It's a full bath with a shower.

Asked by: Whindy
don't know how the finish and materials will stand up to the humidity of a bathroom. Should last a few years, even with kids or dogs getting baths. I assume you don't intend to put it into the shower enclosure. Be the guinea pig and let the rest of us know.
