Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it These shelves fit my space perfectly and look elegant and I love the flexible layout, especially if we move and have different-sized space. Only caution is be gentle w the driftwood shelves. Behind the veneer is fiberboard. They're not as solid as they seem. But if you're gentle, they look very classy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flexible and affordable! The metal uprights can be used in a variety of directions and combinations. The shelves are solid, weighty and fit on the uprights well. I love the flexibility of being able to move the shelves to different rungs and connect the uprights however I want without having to worry about fiddly littleshelf attachments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and versatility We purchased Connections shelving for our living room. The quality of the product is excellent making it appear to be a much pricier product. It's easy to set up and move around which makes it very versatile for any room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Driftwood Shelving - beauty and functionaltiy! We love this shelving system! The multiple shelf bars allow you to customize the shelving arrangement to accommodate tall or short items and the grooves on the shelf undersides securely lock the uprights in place so no tipping or leaning worries. The shelving itself is study enough to hold our heavy, fine art books without bowing under the weight. Sleek, contemporary and flexible. It's the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile eye candy This system stopped me in my tracks when I saw it at the store. In my white-walled apartment, it's a great contrast and an interesting focal point. With the shelves at different heights to accommodate books and a few display pieces, it adds both storage and beauty to an empty wall. It could not be easier to assemble...just place the shelves on the desired crossbar. One caveat: you may well want to buy MORE pieces once you've established your first setting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shelving - holds up Bought it for the simple beauty, loved it for it's strength. I use it for all of my books from school and my personal library. These shelves have held up for a few years to my abuse, and trust me when I say I abuse these shelves. They are currently holding about 20 text books per shelf and there is no bowing or evidence of strain. My husband and I are talking about my shelving and the entertainment center for our living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shelving unit I purchased this for my computer area and for my library. Very solid piece of furniture. Well built. Easy to put together. Works great. Fits areas that really aren't big enough for a desk but serves the same function with the computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy and Good Quality This shelving system is very easy to assemble and is extremely strong. It is quite suitable for me because I own stacks and stacks and stacks of books that needed easy shelving. The ebony finish looks very appealing and the bookcases themselves don't jut out very much which is helpful because the hallways in my house are narrow. I think it looks best in a contemporary setting and works well with my other modern furniture. Overall, it was a great buy that works well with my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Wonderful Library The Connections Library Shelving system is one of best ideas ever. The sleek, simple design might be a traditional Asian one, but it goes with almost every furniture period. It is so sturdy, that not even one book moved during last summer's east coast earthquake. The lines are so clean, that even with four sets of shelves in the bedroom, the room doesn't look crowded. If you are as avid a reader as I am, I would highly recommend this system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shelves We were looking for a solution to a cramped office space that would allow us a little bit of clearance to store some totes on the bottom shelf. The Connections shelving allowed us to adjust the height of the bottom shelf as high as we needed. I really loved the modern feel of these shelves too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After much thought and comparison After shopping around and comparing prices, quality and overall aesthetic appeal, I purchased the Connections unit and I am so glad I did. Not only did it update my wall and living space, it added amazing storage and versatility. I love the fact I can place the shelving in any rung and accommodate my personal things. I purchased the desk, the entainment shelves and the third section. My living space is no longer cluttered nor mismatched. Michelle at the White Plains store was not only knowledgeable about the product, the measurements and found for me some sale items, but she was also friendly and helpful. HIghly recommend this product - you won't be disappointed if you get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shelving solution I really love this shelving system. Its perfect for open storage, but not great if you want closed/hidden storage. My hubby and I were looking for a wall unit that would hold our small TV and our desk top computer and all the components, along one wall in our small apartment. This was the only solution we could find that would give us both -and we love it! My hubby loves how sturdy it is and easy to assemble (no assembly, really) Just stand the uprights 29 inches apart and place a shelf on the rungs! The shelf locks into place and the whole thing is ready. My only complaint is that you can see all the wires, cables etc, that are behind the shelves; no way to hide them unless you have baskets or books or something to place on shelves to hide them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT connection with Connections Shelving I agree that the shelves are wonderful due to the various configurations that are possible. A great choice with solid and sturdy shelves. The service at the Container Store is superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shelves, great service These are wonderful shelves, the different configerations make them extra special. They are solid and sturdy, and fill any space well. We did have to buy a few extra shelves because they looked sparce with the original 10, but if you search online you can find 20percent off coupons, which make the shelves even cheaper. The service at the container store was excellent, as always.

Community Q&A

Interested in the Ebony connections library shelving unit; can I make it a little less wide than 90", say 84"?

Can Ebony connections library shelving unit be made to fit 84" instead of 90" noted in literature?
Asked by: Deede
If you don't use center shelves you could adjust the overall width. Not sure if you could use a router to change the trough that sits in the uprights. They are cut to fit the width of the cross supports for snug fit. Don't know if the material of the shelf would be damaged if you tried that.

Shelve Length

I love the idea of this for my TV/Entertainment console. My TV's width is 41" and the only length shelves I see for this design are 30". Do the shelves come in multiple sizes?
Asked by: Emmaline
Our Connections Shelves are available only in a 31-1/2" width.

Total width?

What's the total width of using all four metal uprights with the shelves installed? I know the shelves are 31" each, but when you rest them in the uprights, I think the total width of the entire system should be less than 93" inches.
Asked by: TJSacramento
The dimensions of our Connections Library Shelving solution are 90" x 13-1/2" x 72" h. For your convenience, product dimensions can be found just to the right of the product description on the product page.

Closet too short

My closet width is exactly one inch too short. I.e., 89 inches. Can the Container Store make me some extra shelves that are an inch shorter? I would use the existing shelving on the left and right sides of the metal uprights. And then I would put the shorter shelves in between the two shelving systems, if the store can make me some shorter shelves.
Asked by: TJSacramento
