Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for dorms This shelving unit is perfect for my dorm room!! Reasonably priced and good quality to last a while. This goes on my desk to give more vertical storage above my desk while still having plenty of room below for my laptop and other items. Storage solutions are key for college and this item hits all the marks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A college must have! Shopped everywhere for a simple, good looking, affordable desktop shelf for my daughters desk when she moved into her dorm. And I found it online at The Container Store! This fully assembled, sturdy shelf more than met my expectations! I read the reviews, and decided to go to the store (over an hours drive for me) to check it out for myself. I was SOLD! I'm going to buy more for my home. I loved it that much! AND I got it on sale for $51.75! I have never written a review for anything before, and I'm more than happy to do it for this shelf. If your thinking about buying this item: DO IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid storage I bought 2 of these for my sons dorm room. Allowed us to have extra space for his printer etc on his desk and still have storage/place for pictures. Really adds a homey feel to the dorm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for college students Got this for my dorm when I found out the desk in my room had minimal storage, and me being a messy college kid, if there is nowhere to throw my books, pencils, graphing calculator, post its, etc, they would just be thrown all over my desk, and life would be crazy. This however worked out amazingly. Its very sturdy and simple, I could throw all my books and stuff on it, and also it has a lot of room underneath so my 17.3 in laptop could fit snug underneath it without problem. Its very appealing to the eye, and makes me look forward to using my desk to study!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have 5! I really like these shelves. They are sturdy, attractive, and affordable. We bought 5 of them when we were living in our old apartment and stacked two pairs to make tall bookshelves. I seem to recall having to exchange one or two because a notch in one of the shelves was misaligned, but it was not a big deal thanks to the store's excellent customer service policy--one of the employees actually opened up the boxes in store to check that the replacements were not defective. We have found new uses for them in our new house. Would definitely buy these again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I love this product! I have been thinking about getting one for awhile now and I wish I had gotten it earlier. I love that it has so many different uses for it! I use it for my books and my textbooks. I have it right on the floor and not on top of a desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bookshelves EVER I bought four of these shelves to stack up to make two tall bookshelves. I will continue to purchase more. The initial use for these bookshelves was for my three year old's room to store toys. We lived overseas so this purchase was simple, compact and lightweight. We attached the bookshelves and they provided infinite storage. Luckily my child wasn't a climber, but I'm sure the shelves would have supported his weight (we used the wall brackets too). We moved again and the shelves were taken apart and packed. We are currently at our final destination and the shelves have been reattached to make two tall shelves again. Let me just say, this is the best bookshelf purchase I've ever made. There is no particle board here. The shelves were able to handle a lot of abuse from moving and general kid abuse for four years so far. They are currently in my son's room because they are so space saving and attractive. My husband recently took a pair to put in his office. I recommend these shelves for any type of setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this! I went to the store in search of something to replace my stackable collapsible plastic cubes that I've had since college. Those cubes were very flimsy and were forever popping lose from one another, and I wanted something more sturdy and more classy. This is absolutely perfect- the right width, the right height, and adequate depth. A great value, too- and it just so happens to match my desktop folding hutch and my bedposts as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life-Saving Purchase When I moved into college this semester I was unpleasantly surprised by not having a separate living room and bedroom. This crisis called for the awesome power of the Container Store, and this great space saving hutch. It was sturdy and provided me with ample space for all of my textbooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I Bought This Bought this for my daughter's freshman dorm room. When we arrived, it turned out that her desk was partially in front of the window and also the HVAC unit. So it was perfect that this hutch does not have a solid back & sides. It lets through both the sunlight and the air circulation. Plus I love that it just unfolds to open and folds flat to close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Dorm I'm sending my third son off to college and he's the third one to get one of these. I highly recommend it for any student's dorm room!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the product, the assemblage I was very happy with the quality of this product and I am sure it will be very useful. However, when I received it the person who assembled it tightened the screws too tightly and cracked the wood (about 3 inches). The unit still seemed stable so I kept it and put some super glue in the crack for extra hold. Hopefully, it will hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful purchase I needed to expand storage space for my home office and visited the container store for inspiration. I found many great options, but loved the folding hutch, particularly its in-store display, which was on top of a simple table top with legs. I stole the idea, and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dorm room purchase I bought this for my son's desk in his dorm room. It exceeded my expectations! It folds nicely for moving and it is very stable and well made. The wood is also very handsome. This provides such nice shelf space for a small room!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Folding Hutch Perfect size for a dorm room desk. Easily accommodates a printer underneath while leaving room for Laptop and desk necessities... and is even packaged for easy transport to the dorm. Only minor flaw in the hutch is the manufacturer's brand on the underside of the lower shelf. The brand is noticeable on the white hutch but not on the darker stained hutches. Only the person sitting at the desk will notice it but it should have been placed somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect for my desk! I got a desk that has huge surface but without any storage above or below. This hutch fitted perfectly onto my desk without taking up too much space but adding more space vertically. It is very stable and has not left any marks on my glass desk. It leaves enough room between the ground and the first shelf to fit an average sized computer monitor. It folds up easy to move or store away depending on where I'm living. It is also fairly light. It also comes assembled, you just have to unfold it! The shelves are a little short because of the design to not take up too much space, but will fit most books and the Container's Stores magazine files just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value I ordered 2 of these to create a hutch for my desk at work. They're easy to setup and are perfect for holding books, photos, and speakers. They also have enough of a space below the first shelf to let my monitors sit comfortably.

Weight ? Height?

What is the approx. weight of this Hutch ? What about how tall it is a.k.a. its h(eight) ? Is it the same 37" as the 3 shelf Bookcase ? The questions about measurements have been asked & answered except how tall the unit(s) stands. Shall we assume that the 37" description of both units covers "h" ? Approx. weight would be helpful, as well. Thank you!
Asked by: cantusemyname
The overall height is 37", and the weight is 24 pounds.

Room Makeovers

You remember it. I remember it. And our kids are going to remember it: the college dorm room. And while some things change - my beloved Sting poster that was on my wall is now replaced by what? Maybe a lovely piece of art or montage of fun photos of friends and memories? Some things never change when it comes to dorm rooms - it's probably the smallest space you'll ever reside.
