I kind of love this storage cube because it's so much more space-efficient than the lower-styled offerings. You can move this, turn it sideways, stack it with other cubbies, and use it to store small clutches and accessories. It's very versatile and therefore, gets two thumbs up!

  • Sturdy particle board and laminate construction
  • Light assembly required; all hardware included
  • 24-1/4" x 11-3/4" x 19-1/2" h

This has a more luxe feel than the cubbies, but is not quite as versatile.

  • Durable, scratch-resistant melamine surface
  • Includes three slanted shelves with silver rails
  • Middle shelf adjusts to accommodate different shoe heights
  • Holds 9 pairs of shoes and more storage is simple to obtain by stacking one unit on top of the other
  • Easy assembly; only a screwdriver is needed
