Two freestanding Feet and two freestanding Uprights are needed for each section of a freestanding solution. A Platinum Elfa Ventilated Shelf can be attached to the top of a pair of freestanding Feet. Use a 17" foot when only 12" Shelves are used in a one-sided solution, or 12" Shelves, 16" Shelves or Drawer Frames are used in a two-sided solution. Use a 21" foot when 12" Shelves, 16" Shelves, 20" Shelves or Drawer Frames are used in a one-sided solution, or 20" shelves are used in a two-sided solution. A 16" Ventilated Shelf can be attached to the top of two 17" Feet; a 16" or 20" Ventilated Shelf can be attached to the top of two 21" Feet. Or, one of our experts can help you determine which freestanding Feet you'll need for your custom solution.

  • Every elfa freestanding solution stands on its own - nothing is mounted to the wall
  • Exceptionally durable epoxy-bonded steel construction
  • Levelers on the bottom accommodate uneven floors and baseboards of varying heights
  • freestanding Feet are designed for use in both single- and double-sided solutions

Platinum Elfa freestanding Feet is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freestanding great for renters! I just purchased my third set of freestanding elfa to make a second desk. It's great for me as I'm hesitant to put too many holes in the walls of my rented apartment. Everything is really sturdy and it'll be easy to dismantle when I move. I've played with the configuration of the shelf a bunch of times before I got it right. Luckily. Container Store has excellent customer service for returns and exchanges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly parts and pieces If you can dream it, you can build it. This especially applies to Elfa systems, plus it breaks down into easy to move pieces. Perfect for dorm or apartment living. You can also change the design to accomodate any need you may have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freestanding Shelving I use my shelving in the basement to get stored items off the floor. Easy to install. Every thing is so easy to organize. I use with the plastic storage bins. I label the bins which makes it better when I look for items I have stored. Love being able to configure to my space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Conversion A couple of years ago I had an Elfa Shelf System installed on a wall in the basement. My situation has changed, and I wanted to move the system upstairs into a spare bedroom, but I wanted to go with freestanding system (I didn’t want to deal with the plaster walls of this old house). I was able to use three 83” freestanding uprights, three 17” freestanding feet and two 2’ stabilization kits to accomplish my goal--and I was able to do it by myself in about an hour. I was enormously pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable, moveable After adding numerous wall shelves, this was our first free-standing shelf purchase. The unit is stable, fills our need to store towels, plus move around our master closet. The cross-bar stabilizer was a good buy for this unit, althought it took me a while to figure out how to put it together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my hero omg, it's the best system ever. When I had to go from Elfa to fee standing, it opened up my husbands eyes, to a whole new world. I don't know if there is anything else like it or cheaper, but I am very faithful to elfa. I went from a house to a new mobile home and it works for us. Love It

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Elfa Free Standing option I just purchased two free standing sets at the store. The design consultant was very helpful and knew exactly what I needed. I bought a 3ft wide free standing with 8 shelves to hold my shoes (each 12" deep shelf held 5 pairs, and a 16" deep shelf on the bottom held 8 pairs of boots); a 2 ft wide free standing with baskets held my boys' balls and equipment. Love these! They're sturdy, and I love being able to adjust the shelves to fit my needs. Can't wait to start working on my closet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I have been an elfa fan since I installed my first closet system, but when I moved into an apartment and was looking for a convertible media unit, I thought I might be able to make the elfa system fit this need as well. It was perfect -- I didn't have to drill into the wall and I can rearrange the shelves as much as I want. I was nervous to see how sturdy the system would be not anchored to the wall and I have been pleasantly surprised -- the system is just as sturdy as if it were a wall-hang system. The folks designing elfa really know their stuff. My advice: There are cheaper storage systems available, but I haven't found anything that compares in quality and durability to elfa. If you want something strong, sturdy and that lasts, efla is best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST Needed extra storage in a large walk-in. Set up ELFA freestanding with no tools and was sturdy and perfect. We moved and easily took it with us, and now it is standing in the middle of our new walk-in closet. Would buy more without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engineering confidence! Okay, I LOVE my traditional Elfa, but I had to review the free-standing pieces that I purchased, because they're AMAZING! I'm not good at math and have no knowledge of engineering. The folks who do have the brains for it make me very happy when they created the free-standing Elfa that helped me transition the world's smallest bedroom into a fabulous walk in closet! I moved from Dallas to NYC and have 1/3 of the amount of space that I had before. The set up that they laid out for me and the sturdy legs gave me every confidence that I could load the double sided and the wall units to the max! For once, I splurged on all the walnut fascias, and everything look so very nice because of it. Another WIN for Container Store. I will never stop talking up this stuff, because it's MAGIC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freestanding solution of wonder These long feet are very stable, after adding the first set of shelves, a few twists of the included wrench to ensure you are level and you are ready to finish setting up your shelving system. Have also done freestanding dual sided shelve solution using these feet and find it to be extremely stable, no rocking or sway although I did plan so heaviest was on the base and lighter items as we went up. I was also careful to plan that weight was distributed evenly as possible on both side. I don't know if that was necessary, but I figured it was just a smart plan to have. Must buy are the shelf back bars, otherwise smaller items easily fall off the back or between the shelves of a dual sided set up. Super system, so glad I converted to freestanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE My elfa free standing I love my freestanding elfa system, I am an artist and a student which requires me to be organized in a tiny apartment with a lot of art supplies and materials. As soon as i was able to i started saving and invested in my organization and it's changed my life. This product is sturdy and easy to assemble. In a few short hours i had all my art supplies organized where I can see them and up off the floor where they had been previously, which gave me room to move, think and create! I love what i have so far and I intend to keep buying parts and expand as i can afford it ^__^

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The free standing elfa shelving was a breeze to put together. It makes for great storage space and you don't have to put holes in the wall to anchor it! Since it comes in many sizes it will fit pretty much any place you need extra storage shelves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love everything except the shelf clips We have traditional Elfa hanging shelves everywhere - closets, garage, workshop, laundry room. We were delighted when free- standing came out as it allowed us to fill a need in our basement. The one flaw was the plastic clips used to hold a shelf to the feet; any time we would go to slide something onto the shelf, the clips would pop off. We just decided to add to our basement shelving and thought Elfa would surely have come up with a better way of attaching the bottom shelf to the feet in the intervening years. Unfortunately, they are still using the flimsy plastic clips that don't stay put. Please work on a better solution - these clips really detract from the overall quality of the product and aren't worthy of the Elfa name!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent option The freestanding elfa shelving is perfect for an area in my house where I can't hang shelving on the wall. It is stylish but streamlined. Best of all, it will be very easy to take with me whenever I move from the house.
Date published: 2011-02-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed So easy to put together yourself, it's a little tricky if you don't have a second person to help, but it can still be done. A great option if you want to switch around the set up later on, or if you aren't quite sure what all you want at the begining and want to add more components later.

Clear elfa clip in the photo?

What is the name and/or product number of the clip that is used to attach a White elf a Ventilated Shelf to the top of a pair of freestanding Feet, as shown in the photo? I can't seem to find that small, clear clip within the elfa webpages.

How much weight can it handle?

I'm very interested but I need to know how much weight it is rated for before I purchase the freestanding system.
Asked by: MyNicknameHere
We do not have a weight limit for elfa product because it does hold so much weight, it should be able to hold strong as long as the items are evenly distributed and the unit is installed properly.

Do they rust? Could I use Elfa outdoors in an open area with a roof over it?

We live about 1 mile from the beach in southern California. We would like to use the freestanding Elfa system to build a rack for surf boards. The rack would be placed outdoors with a small roof over it. We don't get much rain, but there is moisture on the boards and in the air. Would Elfa be a good choice for this?
Asked by: CaliViking
These are made of epoxy-bonded steel and they may rust if the finish gets scratched then exposed to moisture.

What are the dimensions?

Specifically, how tall and how long (deep) is it? I need to work around some obstructions. Thanks!
Asked by: BrianE
Our product #10041676 is 17" front to back x approx. 5-1/2" tall (there are leveler feet which allow you to adjust the height.) You will use this size if your freestanding solution has shelves that are 12" deep. Our product #10041680 is 21" front to back x approx. 5-1/2" tall. You will use this size if your freestanding solution has shelves that are either 16" or 20" deep.

How many feet and uprights do I need for a freestanding unit?

ie., can I use 2 feet & 2 uprights for a 3ft. unit?
Asked by: Dogler
If your freestanding unit is spaced 3' then you would only need 2 uprights and 2 feet, the same goes for a 2' section as well.
