16" Skandia Shelves is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from I've had Skandia for over 40 years now and I continue to find it sturdy, and flexible as I've moved from place to place and it always is easily configurable to fit in different rooms and spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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!

Community Q&A

Width of an assembled unit using 20" shelves?

I see from the video that the shelves rest on pins that are installed through a two-piece side panel, therefore a portion of the side panel will extend out to the side beyond the shelf. What would be the total width of an assembled unit if using 20" wide shelves?
Asked by: GandT
An assembled Skandia Shelving unit using 20” shelves is approximately 21” wide.

where can we find the pins needed to hold up the shelves

The shelves are assembled by putting 4 pins per shelf in the holes at the height you want to mount that shelf. I don't see the pins offered as a product nor are they mentioned as being shipped with the shelves.
Asked by: MustHaveCoffee
The pins were shipped with the shelf.
