We've joined the old-world charm of wrought iron with contemporary functionality to create our Iron Folding Tower. Designed to our specifications for economical, attractive storage of books, magazines, tchotchkes, plants, canisters and cookbooks, or toiletries and cosmetics, our Tower is an unbeatable value. Made of cast iron with an attractive, neutral pewter finish, each Tower is pre-assembled - no tools are required. Easy to transport and store, it folds flat when not in use. Fold one out to create a wealth of storage space in the den, library, dorm room, kitchen, bath, or bedroom. For outdoor use, apply a coating of a protective sealer like Rustoleum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Well made and looks great given the price! This shelf is all metal and welded as opposed to many of the cheap screwed together items I've seem for more money. Shelf folds open and sets up in minutes. Also has some element of style to it more so than many others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shelving unit I bought two sizes of this. I am using them inside a closet after removing old wooden shelving. I like that I can easily use this anywhere because it is nice looking. It's nice that this folds flat if I'd want to store it or move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bookshelf This is a great bookshelf because in spite of it's small footprint it is very stable. This one was ordered as a gift to my son for his first apartment but i have owned and used one in my home for about 8 years. I just haven't found another product that fits so easily into small spaces but is so stable and very attractive. I would highly recommend this product..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly small This was the perfect storage tower for all my make up, skincare, bodycare, and hair products. It fit everything perfectly without overcrowding my somewhat small room. It was so easy to set up (takes less than 5 minutes). The dark gray color went perfectly with my light-medium gray walls. I love everything about it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and easy to move I've had this shelf for a couple of years but just moved to a new apartment, it was really easy to pack up and move as it folds up to be pretty flat. It's sturdy and has a nice look to it. I use it for my white towels, I like the contrast with the metal. Good purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaning tower I am currently on my second shelving unit. The first one had an issue where one of the legs wouldn't screw in all the way. The second unit leans to the point it's unusable. This is made very cheaply and isn't worth the price being charged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supplements other products of this series I have four wide six-shelf foldable bookcases and one low four-shelf bookcase that I use for CD's, all in my bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great economical shelving I love these iron folding shelves. I have this one and a few others in different sizes and they are great for any room of the house, media, bathroom, etc. I think they are super attractive and simple. Really great, spare design that goes with any decor. They take no time at all to assemble and can be stored easily if not in use or for moving. I have had them for years. Really a fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with quality I am SO pleased with the quality of these shelves. Sturdy, well-made, easy to set up, easy to clean, and great to look at. Had shopped around at a lot of different places for just what I needed; almost succumbed to a cheaper shelving unit because of the price difference. But when I went to the brick-and-mortar store of the cheaper unit and examined it, there was no question where I headed to make my purchase...The Container Store. I liked it SO much, regardless of double the price (no, that doesn't mean TCS was overpriced at all) of the cheaper one, I BOUGHT TWO OF THEM! They are so handsome, fit so well, and I am completely thrilled with my purchase! And the store rep helped me put these tall units in my little car, knew exactly how to make them fit for the trip home...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Portable Shelf While shopping in the store, this shelf caught my eye. After examining it, I was excited that the measurements would fit in my closet. I decided to purchase two of the towers and one of the six shelf bookcases. They fit perfectly in my closest and look so nice I hate to close the closet door. When company comes over, I show everyone my nicely organized shelving. The units are very heavy duty and super easy to install (just open the box, put the unit where you want it to go, and open it up). One word of caution, when opening up the unit, be careful a shelf does not slam down on your fingers. The sides open outward to the left and right and then each shelf rests on a latch. I didn't realize this was how it worked so my finger got pinched and a little spot of blood showed up. Great units though. Heavy to carry in the box but totally worth the pinched finger. Went back to store and bought two more towers for my other closet. Love you Container Store !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in small spaces! A few years ago I bought this product to fit into an unused space in my pantry. It was super sturdy and great to house small kitchen appliances that would otherwise clutter up the countertops. I have since moved from that large house with tons of storage. That tower is in my long-term storage, waiting for my new home to be built in another town. I recently bought another one for a home that I am renting for use in a tiny laundry room. It is super compact, but heavy and sturdy enough to be used for large detergent jugs and overflow storage for cleaning items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for a small space Got this for a normal NYC bathroom - less than 5x7' in size. I searched for a long time to find something that would fit the only wall space available, and still let me reach the light switch. This was perfect. I'm very happy with it. I got two media centers at the same time for the living room, and they have worked out well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution to Tricky Storage Problem We needed additional shelf space in our office area, but didn't have the floor space. We did have a very small utility closet that wasn't used smartly (never used ironing board, etc). This shelf unit fit perfect in this closet and now allows us to have lots of filing and storage space. Also, very easy to assemble!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Nice shelving. easy to set up since its one piece. just fold out the sides and drop the shelves. This one fits perfectly into a small corner of the bathroom and looks great. I have another size in the bedroom and a bigger one in the living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best compact shelving for small spaces I purchased this tower for a very small corner of an even smaller bathrooom. It is extremely sturdy and well made, and attractive as well. I bought some baskets to contain my cosmetics and hair products, put them on the shelves, and voila, no more clutter. It exceeded my expectations since I'd previously purchased a similar looking tower from a national retailer and ended up returning it as it was flimsy and poorly made. This is a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits everywhere This shelving unit is great as it has decently deep shelves for its size and is narrow enough to fit into lots of different nooks. When I moved I easily found another space for it because its size is so useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small spaces I moved from an apartment with built-ins in every room to a rental with none. Thus I needed to add a lot of bookshelves. The new apartment has many corner niches and this tower fits perfectly in these otherwise unused spaces. It is ready to work right out of the box and is very sturdy. I bought two and was so pleased with them that I plan to buy two more. Good quality product and good value.

Community Q&A

Can the unit be attached to the wall? Wondering if it is safe for baby's room. Thank you

Asked by: Nicholas
Although hardware isn't provided to do this, in my opinion the unit could be secured to a wall. If the concern is a whether or not a toddler could pull on it, I'd make sure the installation was done by an experienced person who knew what the requirements were and how to meet them.

Shelf location

I have a thermostat at the 49 - 54 inch location from the floor. Will the thermostat be in the way of the shelf or is it clear. Estimating about 11 1/2 inch shelves, it seems OK, but would like confirmation before ordering. Thank you.
Asked by: Bren46
The shelf will probably cover the thermostat. Check out other items. there is a similar shelf which is lower and only has 4 shelves.

How susceptible is this product to rusting in a bathroom setting?

Asked by: HB52
This item is rust-resistant, but not completely rust-proof. We'd recommend applying a coat of Rustoleum or a similar sealant if it will be exposed to a lot of water or moisture on a consistent basis.
