“Our objective with Custom Spaces is to exceed the needs and desires of our customers by continuing to innovate and stay abreast of the latest design trends,” said The Container Store’s Vice President of Custom Spaces Manufacturing Barbara Snook. “Ongoing enhancements to our assortment help us deliver on our objective and capitalize on the $6 billion custom spaces market. We will continue to drive innovation across our Custom Spaces lines to remain competitive and top of mind for consumers. Paired with our new premium general merchandise, like socially conscious home goods from The Citizenry or innovative glassware from Fortessa, customers don’t need to go anywhere else for a complete solution whether it’s a Preston closet, office, entertainment center or pantry.”

Preston design enhancements include:

  • Newly released finishes including Lakeshore green, Night Sky blue and Black Super Matte, which offers a fingerprint-resistant finish, Raven black woodgrain and Sahara, which features a beautiful cathedral graining
  • Smart home-compatible, LED integrated lighting
  • Eight recycled leather patterns and colors perfect for using as decorative door and drawer fronts, leather shelves, countertops or bench seat tops
  • Clear, mirrored, back painted and patterned glass, and on-trend metal mesh door inserts in three weave patterns and three finishes
  • Aluminum frame doors in a variety of finishes and profiles
  • Slim shaker door and drawer profiles

Customers can consult with a design specialist to design a custom Preston space for free in store, virtually or in their home. A catalog with inspiration and a full list of customization options can be found online.

In November, in addition to enhancements to the premium Preston line, the Company will strengthen its garage offering with Garage+ by Elfa.

Snook continued, “Garage+ by Elfa bridges the gap between our Elfa Classic and premium Preston garage solutions, marrying utility and design. We look forward to introducing this new line to our customers, which includes many features they have been asking us for at a competitive price, and pairs strategically with our existing garage storage solutions.”

Garage+ builds upon Elfa Classic’s current garage options, plus:

  • Fully enclosed wall and rolling cabinets
  • Lighting
  • Heavy-duty work benches
  • Full extension, soft close 20” deep drawers
