I bought 2 of these units and they worked out really well. They give you a lot of shelf space, but the shelves are not included. You have to buy them separately, which is a little unusual. The assembly instructions are a little confusing, so I would suggest you read them several times and play with the parts before starting assembly. Once you get the unit assembled, it is very sturdy and looks really good. When comparing it against other shelf systems, this one was far ahead for value and looks. My wife likes it so much; I will probably be buying more in the near future!
These closet organizers fill a gap in the available products for closet organizing - between the white wire and pressed board laminates and the out-of-reach-too-expensive-for-most-people custom units.
They look high-end, the wood quality is just adequate and the hardware is just adequate -- but all together the end result is very pleasing, looks great and feels sturdy.
Installing them is a job for someone that knows their way around a few power tools and has a little experience in finish carpentry. It took us all day (14 hours!) to install two kits plus an extra tower with doors and drawers. It was not simple and there were some spots that took a little extra engineering.
Still in the end I am very pleased with the results. Good product if you can do the work.
I had someone put this together for me, and I recommend that. I sat with him and saw his confusion over the design and the way this unit's pieces fit together. Since the description states that this piece can be free standing, we tried it that way. It was way too unstable. The sides actually bowed outward to the point that the shelves were too short to fit. My carpenter then braced it to the wall, so it is fine. However, if you do this, be sure to put the shelves where you want them first, because you will never get them out, and if you do not have them in, you will never get them in. The wire basket simply did not fit the unit, though I bought the size recommended. My guy rigged it so it does work but cannot be pulld out unless the cabinet is open. The end result is lovely. I bought the frosted glass doors, and the size is perfect for the spot where I put it. But, truly, the design is terribly flawed for functionality. Because of this, I consider this item to be overpriced. I expected smarter design for this price. I am still recommending it because the wood, though soft, is beautiful, as is the finished product if you can get it together.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Excellent materials, flawed design for function.
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Everything except the phrase "free standing."
as much as I liked the product, very difficult for one person to put together. Shelves and or drawers are not included in the tower and nowhere did it state shelves and or drawers sold seperately. For the price shelves should be included!
Be careful when buying the stand alone tower. It looks like it comes with shelves and drawers based on the photo on the Overstock website but it doesn't. By the time you buy some shelves and drawers, you'll more than double your cost. It's a good product, just not as complete as it looks, so be prepared.
This is a junky piece of furniture AND you have to purchase the shelving units separate. The shelves would not stay stable in the base, we had to stabilize it by screwing the middle shelve into the unit permanently to keep the other shelves from falling down after placing clothing and accessories on them. We would have returned them, but didn't realize they were so unstable until we started filling them with items. By that time we had already thrown all the huge boxes away. We bought 2 towers and 4 sets of shelves at a ridiculous price for such a poor product. ***
We just received this and the deluxe closet system, (which we haven't opened yet!). I never noticed that it didn't include the 2 middle adjustable shelves! So, do we keep them or return them?! They look nice, but I need shelves. They will cost another $** for two. PLUS, I can't find the shelves in mahogany! We have to decide, but READ THE FINE PRINT BEFORE YOU BUY!
Hello patjenjoemc, thank you for your inquiry! This item has to be attached to a back wall or else it will bow out eventually. I hope this helps. Happy shopping! overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 9, 2014
how much weight can the deluxe tower hold? I am planning to use this for a pantry and have concerns about whether the mounting system will hold if the shelves have more than clothes on them.dpenick on Dec 31, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi dpenick, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately we do not weight test our items. Typically these type of tower shelves can hold up to 10 pounds each. While they may be able to hold more we are unable to confirm this. We apologize for the inconvenience. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 9, 2014
