Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for oddly sized office My office space is long and narrow. By using the elfa shelving system I was able to create a useful working environment. A friend helped me install it, and it took only a couple of hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa office shelving and desk Purchased at the store. Associates were awesome to work with. They understood what I was looking for. It was altered a little to fit my needs. Love the desk and the shelving unit. Will definately be adding to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best desk out I love this desk! I used this to make a pinterest desk idea a reality in a small apartment closet. My things stay organized, and it dosen't take up any extra space like a typical desk. An added bonus is not having to move another piece or furniture to vacuum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect workspace The pictures don't do this desk justice! The driftwood top looks like repurposed barn wood, which is really in vogue right now, and together with the platinum legs it's an exceptional industrial aesthetic. I'm a college student and I wanted a large desk space that is sturdy and uncluttered, so when I saw this in the store I knew I had to have it. An added bonus is the fact that it's incredibly easy to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa wall mount desk and shelving My partner and I cannot share a desk but don't have room for 2. We decided to take a very deep closet (picture 1) and convert it into my desk area. It had very deep hard-to-use shelving and we were not using it efficiently. Talk about efficient now! I have room for my computer, 2 scanners, 2 printers, lots of storage. All from about 12 square feet of floor space. When you are done (or have a mess) just shut the door and move on. Thank you Elfa and thank you Container Store for making the design an installation nearly painless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply wonderful! I purchased the elfa office shelving pack years ago when I was still in school - needed it to store my very heavy medical books. Years later, I still use these very sturdy shelves - for my books, my husband's books AND my son's little books. It holds up really well; I've moved twice and have taken it with me (no damage to walls). Love the fact that it's off the floor, especially since I now have a busy toddler =)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Disappointing start but TCS made it right With only 5 feet with which to work, the Elfa desk system seemed the best use of our space. Having customized 2 closets with Elfa, I never thought anything would go wrong. To start, many of the components were backordered for 3 weeks. When I finally received the shipments, the desk top and 6 shelves arrived damaged. TCS in NYC special delivered new pieces to me in just hours. I did pay for installation but because the shelving was damaged, the installer could only put up the tracking, 2 shelves and drill the legs onto the desk top. That left me with having to get on a ladder and install the new shelves. Thanks to the "how to" videos, I was able to accomplish this with little difficulty. Due to TCS's quick attention to my problem, I would still recommend this product. Perhaps TCS should consider padding the edges of these components when shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Office I had a deep closet full of old wire shelves. I pulled them all out, took the bifold doors off, painted the walls and installed my Elfa office system. I love it. I was afraid the desk top would not be sturdy enough for my sewing machine, but It is perfect. Everything fits. Organization is still taking place, but I am thrilled with space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great spacesaver I purchased the white and platinum office shelving and desk on the 30% off sale. I was pleased at how simple it was to follow the instructions. The kit comes in many different boxes, but I was happy that it came in 1 shipment so I can get started immediately! The shelving helped me save on wall space. I live in a small home and have nosy dogs that get into everything, including things on my low bookcases and tables. Now, I don't worry about coming home to shredded books on the floor. The large desk shelf creaks when leaned on (when you actually work, your arms lay across it). As one reviewer commented, choosing units that are wall-mounted rather than hanging standard would solve that. So, I placed anchors above and below the shelf along the tracks and put rolling carts underneath which provided some extra support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ELFA IS MY NEW BEST FRIEND! I have basically an exact replica of the pictured ELFA desk unit above, and I LOVE IT!!! We are reorganizing our entire house, and we had several ELFA units installed in one day. I LOVE THEM ALL. Very sturdy (I have 2 small children), and you can design and redesign them however you choose, as many times as you want. Sarah in the LR, AR store spent hours with me designing the desk, entertainment center & closet and laundry room space and they are ALL exceptional!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from modern, but classic design I absolutely LOVE my elfa shelving. We purchased this for our new office and it pops on the gray-colored walls. It was extremely easy to install, I literally did it all myself. The instructions were easy and even if I was questioning my ability, I was able to go to the website and watch the install videos. My favorite part to anything you buy at the container store is that have 24 hour support via e-mail or on the phone. It's great to purchase a product and continue to have the support long after. I ended up changing my design after I realized my initial vision didn't look as good in person as I thought it would in theory. The container store worked with me to help re-design it and even cut me a new piece of shelving to fit the new space and be flush with the other pieces. I love this store!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from space saver I was looking for a office center that allowed me to maximize my humble 5ftX5ft corner of the house and yet gave sytle. It was easy to install and the best part of this shelving system there are no table legs to worry about when vacuuming the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait? I bought the elfa system for my 8 year olds room and I believe there is no other option when looking for a system that will grow with your child. Its playful enough that she enjoys it now, add a more sophisticated element when she is 16 & she will still enjoy it. I love the fact that we can adjust the height to meet her needs without buying multiple desks over her school age years. The system itself if amazing, from how I went to the store, designed it with an elfa rep., it was ready for me an hour later. All items are neatly packaged and it was super easy to assemble. I am telling all my friends and relatives, the price was extraordinary, (I got it on the 25% off sale). The only item I wish they had was the 30" back spacer, (magnet board). I have the 25" at desk height and it would be nice to have a solid piece across it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband installed this shelving 15 years ago when I opened my catering business for a few cookbooks. It is durable, as attractive today as it was then and as much of an extravagance that I thought it was at the time, I have never regretted its quality, its timelessness in style and its functionality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why didn't I install this earlier?!! This Elfa desk and shelving system has made my life SO much less messy. Due to a remodeling, I have to put a whole lot more into my office space, and this system helped me make good use of my high ceilings. I have room for my sprawling library of books as well as my work-space accessories. I should have done this earlier, as it opens up the floor space in my office for other uses. The staff at T.C.S. were very helpful in answering all my questions and in helping me to customize the system for my needs. Any "kit" can be customized so you're not stuck with a system that doesn't perfectly fit your needs. For example, I really wanted white standards, not platinum. Installing the system was relatively easy, though I recommend a stud-finder (which has nothing to do with horses). You will want to make sure that you mount the rod on which the standards hang onto solid studs, not just drywall or plaster. The rod supports the entire weight of the shelves and everything on them. If you intend to put a lot of books on the shelves, definitely see about using wall-mounted standards rather than hanging standards, for added strength by distributing the weight along the length of the studs in the walls. I will definitely be going back to install more wall-mounted systems elsewhere in my apartment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Den Closet Organized I installed this myself - given the age and tilt of my house, the shelves came out level! I was forced to do something when - through a remodel - I lost a hallway closet. And I am stunned at how I was able to organize everything - it was the Elfa system that allowed this to happen. The flexibility is amazing.
