Nice ShelvingAbbottNice shelving for the price.
Use to be $14EmA multibillion dollar (private no less) company. You are supposed to be happy that it used to be $30?
Greed under cover of inflation.
I’m hooked!RobynLove the Avar system! So easy to customize any space. Such a genius idea! I did permanently attach to the wall for safety.
Very GoodNeilThere's a reason this system has been around for decades... Very easy to assemble and flexible options for setup.
The only downside is that some of the legs are warped so, one needs to check those before purchasing.
Added IVAR unitsJanetteEasy to assemble by one person. Easy to add the next unit and more units. Perfect garage storage with thousands of drawer bins on the shelves.
Ivar is greatBettyI love Ivar. I've had the system for about 35 years. I keep adding sections, moving them around, and changing the shelf configuration. The pieces I buy now still work with what I bought so long ago.
Easy assembly PatWas easy to assemble, just a note the pegs are hiding in the grove of the shelves
SidebarKimGreat, functional product.

Great storage unit!Patriciavery happy with the results
Great shelvingLisaI love how I can configure this shelving for my certain needs. I do wish that I could get one more of the drop down tables. I feel that is one of the best items Ivar came up with.
Versatile and long lastingDebraI bought my first Ivar back in the early ‘90s, and have added on and switched them around in one living space after another, in multiple combinations. You can dress them up or down, and I love the new drawer and cabinet options. I just wish the clothing rods attachments were still available!
IVAR side unitJaniceRead my review of the shelf unit. Been using these since 1994. Best product of the whole store. Customizable
CHANGED THE DESIGN AVOID THIS VERSIONAdrianaI am writing this 4 minutes after attempting to assemble. The new version where the hardware pops out of the built in shelf guide is HORRIBLE. I picked this up at Ikea Burbank (CA) it did not come in a box and however it was stored, the metal shelf guides were bent and I am now sitting with a non working self unit. It fell over and the wood splintered before I could install the metal stabilizer. Its true you get what you pay for. Do not buy this unit, spend some more money and buy something that is better quality and wont break during assembly.
ShelvingJaniceWe assembled this shelving and it was quick and sturdy.
Not as easily adjustable as it seemsWeiWe loved the idea of the pins & adjustable shelves. But as it turns out, adjusting can be a PITA. When you place the shelves on the pins, they snap tight, so you have to whack the shelves up and out of the pins in order to adjust. Here is a tip... You should use a mallet and hit up where the metal rails are when you need to adjust. Simply pulling the shelves up, you risk dislodging the wooden shelve away from the metal rails. That happened to us several times. We lifted the shelves out, but the metal rail was still stuck in the pins. If this happens, you can place the metal rail back in the shelf, but it'll be loose now, so you'll need some glue. Also, many shelves came with imperfections. These pieces are not in any packaging, so I recommend buying at ikea and choose the best pieces yourself. Don't order online. Lastly, If you'll be painting, the sku stickers leave residue when you peel them, no matter how careful or slow you go, so be prepared to spend some time on cleaning residue.
Good looking pieceJoe H.Piece looked great, and was able to paint with ease to match my Decor
IVAR: good as everMaribethI recently renovated a space that will become a guest room/den, and I needed storage for books as well. I decided to use IVAR shelving, which I have used for more than 30 years, through 3 moves. I love it's flexibility, portability, durability, and strength.
Looks nice but super shakyHubertAppearance is really nice but the overall shelves are shaky.
The connection between the wood tablet an it metal part is not that good. I bought most of my furniture at IKEA and it’s the first time I found such poor quality and expensive
