Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and versatile shelf for a great price! This shelving unit was a great buy for the price. Very well made and easy to put together! No tools needed. I had my 86 year old dad put it together and he was joking that it took longer to read the instructions than it did to put the shelf together!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these so much I want to get more! I bought two of these for my home office. They were easy to set up, are very well constructed and durable, and look absolutely fantastic. The casters make them so easy to move around and the fact that they can be folded up for moving or storage is a huge plus. I wish I could put them in every room of my house! I plan to get more in the future. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small laundry area! Needed something low (so I could still hang wet clothes above) and narrow to put next to a stacked washer and dryer (30/31 in. wide space) and this was perfect! Not only does it collapse but it also has wheels (you can also use without them) so I can move it easily when/if I need to get to the hot and cold water valves for the washer in the back. Easy to set up and seems very sturdy. Bottom shelf (13.5 in.) can even hold paper towels...tall shelves! Top one is higher (about 15 in.) Bottom shelf has a crossbar so it might restrict what you put there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Origami 3-Shelf Folding Rack I checked several stores on-line and in-person to find a sturdy but not heavy and easy to move utlility shelf/rack with wheels. I live in a small apartment and needed a shelf to store my fans, heater, and other items which would have adequate height between the bottom and middle shelves. The white-coated steel material is very nice-looking and no tools are needed to set it up or take it down since it folds easily. This shelf is perfect for me and I'm very happy I purchased it. I think the larger size would also work well if you have a larger living space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I luv this shelf! This shelf is the best ever! I am recently retired and needed to reorganize my 'craft room' to allow more space to do my creative projects. I needed a smaller shelf unit to display my elephant collection and my smart TV. The old shelf was horrible. This is perfect! Doesn't take up alot of room, I'm able to move it around easily for cleaning. This makes my workspace bigger and I want more! This was my first purchase at Container Store and I luv this store!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has Potential to be Great The idea of a foldable shelf is excellent. One can use it to temporarily hold your groceries when you are unloading tons of it from your car going back & forth (it standby near the front door). Makes lesser trip. One can also use it to hold clothes temporarily while unloading from the dryer. One can also use it to hold books or folders temporarily beside your table. One can also use it in the kitchen when temporary space is needed for baking or cooking. The temporary storage is the key and you can fold and hide it when unneeded. The drawback is the wheels. It needs to be larger and industrial size for easy movement (like the metro shelves). Can't imagine moving it in carpet (coz some houses have transitions of wood/ tile and carpet.) Hope you improve on it. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is fantastic! Absolutely the easiest product to assemble. Good storage dimensions. Stable and mobile with pleasant white finish. Would love an additional model a little smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Origami folding rack Whomever came up with this design deserves a raise! It is SO easy to put up and if you don't need it you can fold it down. It is bigger than I thought, but still fits nicely into the space that I had for it. Go to the store and look at it to get an idea of the size, but overall it is strong, looks good, easy set up / take down and being on wheels makes it easy to move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice This is a sturdy, easy-to-assemble utility rack. The only difficulty I had was in undoing the safety latch in order to spread open the rack, due to the tightness of the latch and my arthritic hands. Also, if you are using this in an area with a low ceiling, be sure to flip the top shelf to the other side *before* standing it up.

Height between each shelf please ?

Asked by: Karp
To answer quickly without a measuring tape...I easily fit a medium size plastic container on a shelf. The square laundry basket from the container store will slide on the shelf.

Are the casters removable?

I want a shelf to stand inside a cabinet.
Asked by: MiltonaMom
Yes. Actually they don't come with the wheels on so you'll have to attach them yourself.

Container Stories
Room Makeovers

When Angela and David set out to transform an upstairs bedroom/playroom space for their two precious boys Max (4) and Daniel (7), they admittedly had a 700 square foot disaster zone on their hands. They enlisted the help of friend and stylist, Gena Sigala, to help give the large area some personality and order, which was lacking prior. The result is a sunny room full of spunk just like the sweet boys.
