This handsome modern design made of beautiful veneers enduring engineered wood and select birch solids is built to last. A durable multi-step finish in classic pecan adds another level of protection for beauty that will stand the test of time. We can't promise you this unit will handle all your storage needs throughout the childhoods of a couple kids but it's a start. Each cubby in the bench and in the optional towers includes exposed storage. And thanks to the clever tower design which included recessed lips on the bases you have the option of safely stacking towers for enhanced space efficiency and function (we recommend stacking tower units no more than two high). These towers include anti-tip kits to secure to walls and connecting plates to fasten multiple units at the back. But how do you know exactly how much stuff you're going to need to store? Well we predict it's a lot but if you aren't sure just start with one set of towers or just the bench. You can always come back for another set if needed. We'll be right here when you're ready.
