Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my ELFA closet! These are incredible and perfect for my new ELFA closet. My closet didn't have super high ceiling but even after having it renovated with Elfa there was just enough space on the top shelf for these!! it is amazing! I bought 3 of these so far and will be buying more. they are perfect for keeping your sweaters, gloves, winter scarves, winter jeans, and other items stored away when you don't use them. Since I am in Florida we only have like 2 months of winter so it makes more sense to keep these items stored away for use. So I highly recommend these especially for anyone that has had their closet done by ELFA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits more than what’s pictured! I switched all my sweaters to these boxes to save space in the closet for hanging clothes, and did the trick. 2 boxes for about 13-15 sweaters. Perfect place for me to store them, without getting them stretched out on hangers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I love these boxes! For my needs they are absolutely perfect. After 5 years of dreading opening my closet I now want to take the closet doors off :-), thats how great they look, and they are well constructed. My issue is that I need a step stool to comfortably reach into them, but thats not the box that is my height lol. Seriously though these are fantastic! If you have a closet with a top shelf thats always a mess with stacked sweaters that won’t stay properly stacked these are the answer. My only complaint is that you can’t fit too many sweaters that are a thicker/heavier. Can ya’ll make some bigger boxes Container Store geniuses?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Glue changed color/ Box falls apart I loved these boxes when I first purchased them. Over time, the glue has become visible and actually changed to a yellow color that stained through the fabric. The pulls have one by one completely loosened from the box closures; my suspicion is poor adhesive. Now we are back to square one, as it were, to find box storage for folded items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd Odor Love the size, ordered 4 which fit perfectly stacked 2 high side -by-side on my shelf space. However, due to the odor I have not yet put my sweaters in the boxes for fear that they will take on the smell. Boxes have been getting aired out in the basement for about two weeks. Still a petroleum smell, waiting for rain to stop so I can try to air them out outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate in sweater storage These drop front boxes are great for storing sweaters. I love being able to see what’s inside without filing through loads of sweaters and being able to stack multiple boxes together.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed - chemical odor I was thrilled to find these boxes for a small closet storage solution, until I realized everything contained in them takes on a distinct chemical odor-almost like insecticides or gasoline. It’s a strong smell. Whatever the smell comes from, it only goes away once the items stored are washed. I’m extremely disappointed because these boxes are otherwise great. But, I can’t tolerate the smell. Does anyone know how to get rid of the smell???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They Smell Horrible These sweater boxes look great, but smell awful. I had hoped that they would air out eventually, but this hasn’t been the case. They have made all of my sweaters smell horrible as well. And, my bedroom, bathroom and closet. It smells like there was a gas spill.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sweater Box I like the fact that it keeps the dust off sweaters. Wish it opened at the top as well. It’s hard to get sweaters in and out without messing others up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grey Sweater Box Smells I ordered 5 of these boxes for my closet. When they came they smelled of chemicals and were quite unpleasant. I thought I could air them out and use them. Yesterday (I bought them 3-4 months ago) my husband told me I smelled like cleaning fluid in my sweater that I had stored in the box. Looks great, works great, smells terrible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells like petroleum This box is functional for what it is - modular storage that provides visibility and easy access to closet items. That part gets a five-star rating from me. The part I'm less thrilled about is that the box I got had a distinct petroleum/gasoline smell that seeped into the sweaters I stored in it. I aired it out for a day or so, but that didn't help much. Then I sprayed it inside and out with Febreeze and let it dry and that helped some. Of course, at this point, I can't return the box, but I have to say I'm not pleased with the fact that every time I put on a sweater stored in the box, I have to wonder for a few seconds why I smell like I spilled gasoline on myself. I'm hoping the smell dissipates over time, otherwise I might have to give it up. Maybe it's just the box I got, but I expected better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Room makeover I wanted to do my room over by getting rid of as much wood & metal as possible making it easier for me & others to move my belongings around when need be. The container store has items that have worked for me so far. I have 2 extra strong plastic 3 reinforced drawer with wheels I use for clothes & a bedside table The sweater boxes I use for my dust collectors & trinkets so they are enclosed & safe because I gave up my hutch. Oh, I also bought the knit storage bins. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution I wanted a way to store my purses that would be dust free yet visible and without any hassle. These boxes were the perfect solution! Various sizes and I love the magnetic closure. I can devote a whole wall of my closet to boxed and hanging purses, using the container store hooks as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Storage idea not just for sweaters I was looking for a nice looking container to house little model cars my brother collected. Not wanting to leave them out in the open where they dusty easily. I bought these beautiful boxes with a clear window on the front where you can see them and easily access them. They’re sturdy and will last forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lien Drop Front Sweater Box I have wanted to get 1 or a few of these types of boxes for a few years now, but I was never able to because the price was too expensive. When I was able to get it at a great discount, it is a great box to have. It "could be" a few inches longer (at least 2") that way you can fit 2 sweaters side by side, so I made the folding smaller to get 2 sweaters in side by side.

Community Q&A

Is the box shipped as is or is it folded which requires some assembly?

Asked by: Montyawn
It's as shown. No assembly required but that's an excellent question. I don't care much for assembly myself. ;)

How many thicker/heavier sweaters can fit in one of these boxes?

I really like the look of these boxes but most of my sweaters are thicker cable knits and I want to know how many thicker sweaters fit in one box? All the pictures seem to show thinner sweaters. I don't think the price will be worth it, however, if I can only fit 1-2 per box. Thanks to anyone who can help!
Asked by: Moey
You should be able to fit three sweaters, based on my husband fitting his slightly bulky men's sweaters.

Was there any noticeable smell from this product?

Asked by: NolaM
There is definitely a smell. I bought it months ago and it still stinks. Maybe they've switched glues or adhesives but every time I open it, the smell is overbearing. Perhaps it's the clear plastic. Febreze isn't even helping. Thinking of throwing it away. Waste of $30. But the open boxes of same style have been fine.

Are all sides of the box finished with the fabric?

Specifically is the bottom finished the same as the sides and top with grey fabric?
Asked by: Montyawn
Yes they gray on all sides except of course the front where you can see through where you open it up to put your sweaters in.

Can 5 or 6 of these stack without collapsing?

I have an armoire that I would like to fill with these, but need to know if they will hold up to being stacked 6 high when filled with sweaters and tshirts.
Asked by: Eshie
I have them stacked 3 high and filled with sweaters, and they are holding up very well.

No, it opens like a mailbox, with the front flap coming down.
