Rated 5 out of 5Â by Catriona So grateful!
I have owned Skandia shelving from The Container Store for over 20 years. It is amazingly strong, functional, and beautiful. In that time, I have moved 6 times and in each new home, I have been able to reconfigure the shelving to fit my needs. I was so disappointed when it was no longer carried in the stores, but so excited now to discover that it is available by special order! I have now been able to purchase additional pieces to meet my growing needs. And the shelving is still strong, functional, and beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cesmorris Great looks, very strong, lifetime investment
We love Skandia. The shelves are strong, very timeless and get better looking with age. When we we were younger we used Skandia in our living room. We now have it in our closets and in our basement. It is really an investment for a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oldprep Made to last for years
I recently reconfigured and added to a Skandia bookcase that I have owned for over 20 years. I appreciate that this quality product is still available from The Container store. It is sturdy, has clean lines, and I enjoy the light-colored wood that slowly takes on a golden patina.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by lydia123 Great quality and flexible
We bought our first components more than a decade ago for our previous house. Since then, we have moved and remodeled. We've taken the shelves apart and rebuilt them four times to accommodate our changing needs. I have only great things to say about flexibility, durability, and the ability of these shelves to suffer the wear and tear of our chaotic lives. Also, after a decade, the shelves are still completely flat despite 8 years with double stacked books in a damp basement.
Logging on to buy more today.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tabasamu Flexible, easy to assemble
We first purchased Skandia shelving in 2005. Since then we have modified the configuration and added new pieces several times. Our current use of Skandia shelving includes as a desk, media console, and bookshelf. (Container Store no longer sells the desk component.)
Two people and quickly assemble any component.
I suggest spending the time to level the pieces. Purchase the cross-bars for every other unit. Use a level when attaching the cross-bars.
(One person can assemble in a crunch.)
Our original purchase was with an on-store design consultant in 2005. Now I use the buy online, pick up in store option. Container Store sent me a text message when my order arrived in the store. I called when I was driving to the store today. An employee brought everything to the car . Nice!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rms1 Added more shelves
Purchased these shelves for my pantry and love them! Just added more shelves so I could eliminate stacking so many items. They are strong, solid and perfect! Items do no tip over like they do on the wire shelving, they are string enough to hold 4 Dutch ovens, and they wipe clean.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jane23 nice but pricey
Skandia is a flexible solution for shelving needs. It is sturdy and easy to assemble and comes in many size combinations, but it is pricey for the look and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MomInAustin Over a decade of shelving!
I bought my first set of Skandia nearly 17 years ago and I love the fact that I can still get parts to add on or reconfigure the system as my needs change.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by j1jj Skandia Shelves are Tough AND Good-looking
I've used these shelves for decades to carry the heavy weight of a substantial library and also for the last decade to hold my quilting fabric collection which is also very heavy. They have stood the test of time with no warping or sagging.
Their flexibility allows me to rapidly rearrange the configuration to meet changing needs.
When my daughter moved from home, I bought her Skandia, knowing that she would move frequently and need to be able to set up and take down quickly. They have proved fabulously durable.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SCuser Enduring quality
We have had Skandia shelves for almost 30 years. They are quality made with excellent materials.
We recently expanded these units with new shelving. The quality is the same as our original units.
An excellent product!
