Rated 5 out of 5Â by KathO Has transformed the room! Has held up well 1 year.
Purchase this for teen daughter's room over 1 year ago and it is perfect for workspace & organization. Our old house is uneven but the installers (well worth paying for CS installation# did a great & careful job. When it vibrated against the walls when she typed on her laptop, CS gave us additional bolts to anchor it. One minor issue: daughter is short so has to raise chair #Eurobungee which we also love) to type - and the chair can bump against lowest shelf, which has marred it a bit.

I am NOT a DIY or handy person, so I was hesitant about buying this system as a surprise for my husband's cloffice (his office is in our large walk-in closet). I was able to put this unit together ALL BY MYSELF in a few hours and it looks great and keeps him organized. Very happy with the purchase!

After going through multiple wood desks that either warp, get scratched, or discolor after a few years. I knew I had to find a new setup. Went to container store and this elfa product caught my eye. I build it online with a CS employee and assembled it at my house. It took about an hour but it was well worth it. This desk is my #1 choice for a small/medium office/bedroom and for someone who wants a simplistic, elegant, and modern look. The build quality is outstanding. The frames, legs, and pegs are a scratch resistant, thick metal. It will last 20+ years easily. The shelfs are made out of a very durable and stylish particle board like material. Since everything can be adjusted height wise, you can accommodate everything to your needs. And if you somehow do manage to scratch or damage a wood shelf, just buy a new shelf, NOT a new desk like most people have to. I was also happy to see that just about every part of the desk, from the shelves to the legs were made in Europe, and not China. Typical Swedish quality and functionality. Although $1,000+ seems like a lot for a desk, you will save money by not having to buy a wood/particle board desk every 7-10 years. Also bought a bungie chair at the CS which goes great with this desk. Thank you elfa & CS.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer This desk just works!
This is the most practical, suitable, workable desk that I have ever had, and I have tried a lot of desks. I love that I was able to choose the color wood and metal that fit my decor and was able to choose the components that fit my organization needs. Even though it is freestanding it is very sturdy. It was easy to assemble; however, I did make one assembling mistake, but the Container Store replaced the part I bent with no questions asked. Thank you Container Store.

We absolutely love the freestanding desk. We choose Platinum and Walnut and expanded it to include 2 desks and a shared drawer space. We didn't realize that it was customizable until we went into the store; the associate was patient and funny as we designed. The installer was awesome too; on time, efficient and personable. We have decided to treat ourselves to one Elfa upgrade each year during their annual sale. It has been refreshing to embrace organization in small affordable steps.

We had been looking for custom built-in bookshelves for a perfect nook for FOREVER, but it was all too expensive. Delighted to find these, which look fantastic, and are really sturdy. I would recommend!

All my life I have wanted a sharp looking, organized and functional "home office." Since we live in a very small condo my office had to be shared with the guest bedroom. This worked great (so easy to assemble... my husband is not a handy man) it fit close to far wall so we can pull out the couch-bed and still have room to move around. I have had so much fun decorating it; and wow! lots of room for all my stuff. The Container Store made it easy to plan, purchase, and return any items we decided not to use. Love it!

I was given this product when I moved into my new apartment. It is a wonderful product that has helped me stay organized in my office space. I am a writing and I do a lot of different side projects. With this desk set (along with a few other container store products) everything is always in order and easy to find. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to be in order!

This has been a great desk for our daughter. Easy to assemble and the free standing nature of the deak made it easy to position where it would best fit. Plus we can rearrange to the room and move it around with no holes in the wall to patch. Sturdy enough to hold our child's small fish tank with room to write and store her supplies.

love this freestanding shelving unit. redesigned my office space and used this elfa freestanding unit. It is so versatile. The designers in the Paramus store were wonderful and so knowledgeable. My husband was able to erect very easily.
I get many comments on how nice it is.

My husband worked in the IT field out of our home, therefore, he had a plethora of computer equipment. He had 2 laptops, 2 printers, a flat screen monitor, and of course the router and other Wi-Fi equipment. I went to the Container Store and bought a long elfa table with optional shelving. Everything fit on this "computer center" perfectly! There was enough room for us to work side by side, as I do a lot of desktop publishing for personal use. It looks very neat and organized, with space for trays of computer paper and other office supplies, and even a phone. The best part is that we got so much for our money ~ far more affordable than things we had seen at office supply stores and much more attractive. Thank you Container Store ~ I can hardly "contain" myself in what a good job I (and you) did for my husband!

I placed this system in a small walk-in closet and call it my office. I also added a small 2-drawer file cabinet and a couple of cork bulletin boards. I lined the top fixed shelf of the closet with pretty baskets to store items. I decorated the system by placing photos on the magnetic rails and nicknacks on the personal shelf. It's my own personal space and I love it!
