Because it's not attached to a wall, our exclusive White elfa décor freestanding Home Office goes where wall-mounted solutions can't.

Only available at The Container Store, our elfa décor Desk Tops and Shelves create work and storage surfaces that are perfect for writing, planning and organizing. This solution is designed for a wall measuring 96" wide.

Can freestanding systems be anchored to the wall?

I really like the freestanding home office but I live in earthquake country and want to be sure I have the option of anchoring it to the wall so it doesn't topple over.
We don’t have an option to anchor our elfa Freestanding solution to the wall. When the system is positioned within 2 inches of a wall, it is designed to act similar to other freestanding furniture on the market. If you would like more information regarding a wall mounted system, or if you would like assistance with a custom creation, please call us at 1-800-733-3532.

 Java Connections Shelving
Java Connections Shelving
Our Connections Shelving system is inspired by the elegantly simple lines of traditional Asian design. Simply combine Connections Uprights with Connections Shelves to create a solution that suits your needs. From the home office to the den, this system offers easy, convenient storage anywhere you need it. Assembly is a cinch - the shelves feature grooves which fit onto the uprights.||Uprights are made from tubular steel with a powder-coated finish | Shelves are crafted with a Java-finished Ash veneer | Shelves each hold up to 75 pounds of evenly distributed weight
 

Has anyone used it to carry/ hold a printer?

I am interested in purchasing this shelving unit as a single unit, with the enlarged desk shelf to hold a printer. If anyone is currently using their connection shelving for that purpose, I would love to see how it looks on a pic. Thank you in advance!
Unfortunately, we don't currently have a picture of a connection solution as you have described. The Connections shelving line would be perfect for a desk solution, and each shelf holds 75 pounds. However; we do have an expanded desk solution for our Linea shelving which is comparable in price to the connections shelving. I am attaching a link for that as well. If you look at the bottom of the page after clicking on the link, you will see it. http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10028224&N=&Ntt=linea

Our Perfect Tear Wall-Mount Paper Towel Holder can be installed two ways - wall-mount or undercabinet option! The ingenious inner fins allow you to tear off just one sheet using only one hand. Pull harder for more than one sheet. Can be mounted horizontally or vertically.||Chrome finish | Includes mounting hardware
 

Can I install this inside a 3/4" drawer?

Looking for a paper towel holder that I can install inside of our drawers. Need no longer than a 1/2" deep screw to do so. Thanks!
A 1" screw comes with this papertowel holder. In fact, most of the ones we carry do. We can tell you that a regular 1/2" wood screw should be readily available at any hardware store.If you pick these products up in our stores, we have screws we can give out complementary. If you have them shipped to you, just shoot us an email with your mailing address and we can mail them to you. In either case, just let us know you need 1/2" long screws. We hope this helps some.

When you need to identify the contents of a metal storage unit, such as a file cabinet, steel shelving or bins, our Erasable Magnetic Labels fit the bill. The unique system uses a permanent marker and an erasable label surface that resists smears and smudges. It's easy to erase and re-label as your storage needs change. Use them to organize and easily identify contents in our elfa Mesh Drawers , Heavy Metals Bins or Bisley File Cabinets . The starter kit includes five labels, a fine-point permanent marker and an eraser.||Replacement pens and erasers are available (sold separately)
 

Do these work with the silver mesh letter tray?

Yes, they would stick to the Silver Mesh letter tray, however, the difficulty might be finding a surface they could attach to. Since the fine mesh is on the back and the bottom of the letter tray, it might be difficult for the label to hold to the wires on the side or the front as there's just not much surface area. You might be better off using a label holder which "Clips" onto the tray itself.
