12" Whitewashed Skandia Shelves is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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).

Community Q&A

How much weight can a 12" x 20" shelf hold?

I'd like to put magazines on it, but don't want it to break!
Asked by: OAK90265
In my experience, there is no shelving system as strong. Perhaps the heaviest items I've stored are cases of paper. Otherwise, they've mainly been used to hold books and banker boxes full of paper records. Never seen a shelf or an upright warp or bend. I've added to my original purchase many times over the years and have always considered it a good investment.

What length are the corner shelves and are they still available?

I have a bunch of Skandia shelves in storage and want to use them in my new office. The problem is that storage is 600 miles away! I cannot find the shelves listed anywhere. Does anyone know how long they are? It would sure help me with planning my office in our new home.
Asked by: SouthTexasRealtor

What type of finish is used on the Skandia shelves? Does it have an odor?

Asked by: aepm
Our Skandia Shelves are finished with an odor-less, water-based UV coating.

Can you apply a stain to the Skandia products, or are they treated (such as with a wax finish) so as not to take a stain?

Asked by: Wyatt8632
Our Skandia products do have a clear finish on them, so you will not be able to stain the wood.

hardware for Skandia shelving

Hi, I just ordered Skandia supports and shelves. Do either of these come with hardware (e.g., pins, caps, etc.)? If not, any suggestion where I can get them or can you provide suggested alternatives that would work for the pins?
