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!
Requires very precise placement on the wall or the shelves will not fit. If you are not comfortable with getting two parallel lines absolutely plumb on your wall and installing 22 wall anchors, you may want to think twice about this product. Very attractive shelf once installed. The Honey Maple color was slightly darker than shown in the photo, which is nice.
This is the second item that I order and disappointed when I received the item. The photos advertised and name description used with each item are very misleading.
It seems that the closet tower SHOULD have shelves included. It seems obvious Who would need one without shelves!!!
I got the standard closet set-up and this tower and 2 additional shelves. Took some study of instructions and diagrams (patience and time) but two of us installed closets on both sides of a large walk-in and it looks terrific...class and great quality.

It's a good storage unit. wish the tower had the option of having slots for drawers on both sides, so one could combine two units to have three rows of drawers if needed. It's a very decent looking unit and doesn't looking overwhelming in the room.

I had purchased the organizer system and liked it, so bought two towers to create additional shelving for folded garments, pocket books, etc.. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that I had to purchase shelves separately, so had to place another order. Some of the shelves fit perfectly while others keep falling out. I think the pegs should be longer. All in all, I'm happy with the units and would recommend them since it makes a walk-in closet look custom for a fraction of the cost of hiring someone to build a custom closet.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly, but too "red" for my taste
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Consistent quality, soft wood dents easily
How accurate was the on site description of the product? quite accurate
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
