Large Anthracite 5-Bin Storage Tower is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunately not so good My wife bought this as a birthday gift for my office a little over a year ago. The entire Unit sits crooked. Top drawer is especially misaligned with the rest. Hangs lower and almost scrapes second drawer. I should note that I did not put anything heavy in the unit. It seems that the unit could not support it's own weight. Perhaps becaus eof it's corner hinge design? Or maybe I just received one that wasn't aligned properly? I like the unit. Makes me sad that I can not use it. Especially at this price point. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are Boss! I got two of these for bedside tables, and like others have mentioned they really do hold a LOT of stuff! These are the perfect solution for us. They are also extremely well-built and feel way more weighty and solid (and are bigger!), than I was expecting. They are made from thick gauge metal that is coated in durable white enamel, not paint. Yes, their price point is high, but you are definitely getting a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to achieve extra drawer space We moved into a house with very limited drawer space. We put this on our pantry floor and now have plenty of "junk drawers" for odds and ends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for storing sheet music I had been looking everywhere for a small storage unit that could sit discretely beside the piano and store my music in a way that allowed easy access and also make it possible to easily find what I’m looking for. This unit is perfect! I’m very happy with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept, poor design This is a very nice quality unit, however it does NOT hold up to 4-6 pounds per drawer. After I put a few office items in it, the bottom 2 drawers scrape on each other and were difficult to open. I wouldn't recommend this unless you were storing items no more that 2-3 pounds per drawer. Sadly, I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile product I bought one of these for my husband to store his magazines in. It is great for that. I bought one for me next to my computer desk to use for storage so I can have a clear desk. I labeled each bin. I just love it. Contemporary design is so clean. And I got it on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed! I am using this bin as an end table in my living room, and I love that I can put the cords and cables from my router, surge protector, phone, and laptop through the space between the drawer in the back of the bin. The router, phone, and cable box were on top of a low cabinet with all the cords tangled and visible. Now the cable box and router are neatly inside the top drawer, and the only thing on top is my phone. The drawers are roomy, and each one fits two side-by-side piles of letter-sized papers, folders, etc. My only disappointment is that the drawers open in one direction only--right to left. I would have liked matching end tables, but I'll take what I can get! I also wish this bin came in more colors, like turquoise or teal, light gray, ash green, and aqua.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built and convenient We purchased this cabinet for my husband's office to use with office supplies and paper. It is very sturdy and well built, holds quite a significant quantity of paper and other supplies, and fits easily under a bar height work counter. I am pleased with the purchase. It's also convenient that it is magnetic, so it's easy to label the drawers' contents. The only slight drawbacks we found were the size of the drawers versus 8.5x11" letterhead storage and the price. I needed to add paper trays to protect the corners of our letterhead, and doing so meant that the trays had to go in with the long side of the tray on the long side of the drawer. That left quite a bit of space, but while two sheets of 8.5x11 paper would fit side by side, there was no room for a tray when they were oriented that way. I also found the price, even on sale, to be on the higher end for the size of the cabinet. At the same time, I don't expect that we will have to replace this one, so the quality of construction is there. It's just a pricey cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I searched for a while for a drawer organizer for all my kids papers and notebooks etc. This one (large) fits everything perfectly. The small doesn’t hold paper that’s larger than standard so it didn’t work for us. The quality is outstanding and the look is great. Very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient storage Looks great, holds a lot of paper. Drawers open easily and I didn't have an issue with multiple drawers opening at the same time, as other people did. Just make sure that you take into account the space needed for the drawers to open. I initially wanted to use it in a different location but couldn't because of the way the drawers open.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Adjust or Tinker Attempted to adjust one of the hex bolts on top. End result is unusable shelves. Apparently this is factory assembled to some tension/positioning that cannot be re created. The bottom drawer either scrapes, all the drawers open when one is pulled or none open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and Functional I have had the large 5-drawer bin in white for several years, and came back recently for a red one. High quality, sturdy construction, adjustable height legs - the latter are great for me, since I have it as a nightstand in my bedroom, so front legs on on the rug, back legs on floor - adjustable legs allow me level it. Very modern, clean look. I love the way the drawers open - great for heavy items, easy to see all the way to the back of the drawer, etc. Just remember that you'll need ~3-4" on the right side to get the drawers open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever The sturdy and streamlined 5-Bin Storage Tower holds so much. I emptied so many plastic bins of art supplies to put into it and still have lots of room left for more items. The price is great for the quality and space saved in my home. My only suggestion is o have one bin on the tower taller to accommodate tall bottles. However, it's not a flaw that takes away from its function for my purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organize your crafts stash I've tried so many different ways to organize my extensive bead collection, but this is the best yet. Each drawer is wide enough and deep enough to hold large numbers of beads. And there are enough drawers so that I can put different types of beads in their own drawers. Yet the unit is compact enough to fit several in a room. There are lots of crafts organizers on the market, but most are flimsy. This is strong enough to hold heavy items. i plan to buy another to store my scrapbooking supplies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT!!! We are a dental office and we need to have ease in storing all our instruments and material, this replaced 4 rooms, we were using custom made carts. We are extremely satisfied with these. My office manager plans to buy additional carts for her home use in her arts/craft and sewing studio part of her Queens, NYC apartment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty cool Love these units... bought one filled it up and was so excited bought another. Would have given it 5 stars, but the bottom shelf on the second one drags a bit when trying to open or close it... I think quality control is either missing on the manufacturing line, or they get damaged in shipping. But, all that said... I love the units and do recommend them to anybody who needs easy access to STUFF, but don't want the STUFF showing!

Drawer Swing

Are the drawers available to swing either way or just pull open from right to left? If we put one on both sides of our son's bed, one bin won't be accessible, or at least it will be difficult to open.
Asked by: KCGirl
They are hinged on the left and only swing out as shown in the picture.

CD storage?

Would these work as CD storage?? has anyone tried? thank you
Asked by: yonderwesty
I think you could use it for this purpose. You’d have several (maybe 10-15, even) in each drawer but easier to find what you’re looking for when they’re in small groups.

How can these wonderful storage towers be used as nightstands for each side of a bed, if they only open in one direction?

Thank you.
Asked by: Aniseed
Although it would be ideal to have them swing in opposite directions, they are still easily accessible for both people. The person who sleeps on the left side of the bed will have the holes the further distance, but it isn't an uncomfortable length at all. Basically with my elbow at the edge of the bed I can reach the holes without straining or extending.

My cubby space is 24" wide. Would this accommodate large 5-bin storage ; that is, able to open drawers without a problem?

Am concerned may have problem opening the drawers since tower will be in 24" wide nook
Asked by: Lannette
I measured my unit and you should be able to open the drawers with enough space (at the tightest, you still have more than an inch).

how much weight can each drawer hold without issues?

In the smaller one, I have lots of paper and all is ok. There have been no issues with stability when drawers are open.

What kind of drawer inserts do you recommend to help organize the bins?

for example if I want to use a couple of bins for office supplies like pens and erasers and post-its and paper clips?
Asked by: declutterette
Utensil or pencil trays. For scarves I used plastic bags. For papers I used 10x13 Tyvex envelopes.
