Storage Cube PlusPrice: $22.50
The Cube Plus looks so simple. Who knew that limitless possibilities live inside this oh-so-basic box? Use it as a low-profile bedside table – there's plenty of room to store magazines, novels and more. A pair would look great on either side of the couch with a set of matching lamps. Pull up a Cube Plus and sit down for additional, ad hoc seating. And it's a great building block for your own customized furniture ideas.

These cubes are exactly what they claim to be - easy to put together, no tools, colorful, and sturdy enough. I bought two and have them stacked, using them to store my LP Records. They took less than 5 minutes to put together and are surprisingly sturdy considering there are no nails or screws, just double-sided tape. I would definitely buy these again for records, books, or anything else.
These cubes are fantastik!!!

I have been looking for a small bookcase that I can put my 15 nursing books in my closet at the bottom. I could not find anything that I had in my imagination. After multiple searches on amazon.com, I was so happy when I found the way basics cubes! They are perfect size, colors and so easy to assemble. They are very durable, strong and fun too! I bought 2, lined them together and they are excellent for my books. I plan to get 2 more. Love them.
Nice, but imperfect.

My favorite thing about these boxes is how easy they are to assemble; practically fun, even. And they look nice overall. My least favorite thing is that they vary in size by up to a half-inch in some cases. So if you stack a bunch of them, it will be imprecise. The thickness of the boards also vary, resulting in some boxes being wider (and heavier) than others. Also, we had to order a LOT and now they are backordered, and we're still waiting.
It's a great looking product but feels much cheaper in hand.

These boxes look a lot sturdier than they actually are which can present a problem if you are using them in a toddler's room. There is no way to properly secure them so they don't tumble down with whatever you have in them. I love the recycled product idea but it was not clear how light and basically unstable they are. We are using them as bookshelves so we could only stack them 2 high and even that is a little scary. They look nice but they're not so practical actually.

Way Basics Recycled Furniture
If you need simple, basic furniture that's practical and versatile, Way Basics is for you. Way Basics zBoards are easy to put together, sustainably made and completely recyclable. Buy them in pre-designed kits. Or go your own way, and use zBoards as inspiration to invent custom designs and build something new into your life.
It took Way Basics 10 years to perfect the ingenious building-block zBoards at the heart of their business. Their patented, environmentally sound manufacturing process turns post-consumer recycled paper into superbly strong boards that weigh 62% less than particle board. zBoards are just as solid and structurally sound as any engineered wood furniture, yet they're made from one of the simplest materials ever — paper.
Way Basics designed these marvelous building boards to be versatile and easy to assemble, and came up with a new way to put the pieces together. Strategically placed super-strong adhesive tape is the answer — all you do is peel off the protective covering, stick the blocks together, and you're done. If you're creating your own design with zBoards, you can also use screws or hardware if you like. zBoards are water-resistant and easy to clean. They come in different colors and both light and dark wood-grain designs, so you have options to fit your décor. They're also available in white, which makes a perfect canvas for your own imagination.
In these Way Basics packages, you won't find mysterious collections of screws and nails, or complicated diagrams and instructions. That's because you can put our unique zBoards together without tools or hardware. Super-strong 3M brand adhesive strips let you fit the pieces neatly together. Just peel, stick and you're done. Honest.
Because they're so easy to assemble and so versatile, you can also mix and match zBoards to fulfill your furniture fantasies. Since Way Basics products are modular, it's easy to add on to your creation if you need more storage or want to use it for a different purpose. Then paint, wallpaper, or embellish them any way you like as well. (Kids love to decorate their own Way Basics stuff.) That's something you definitely don't get with most assembly-required furniture.View other products from Way Basics
