4' Wide Trilogy Staircase Bookshelf
by Smart Furniture
At A Glance:
Similar to our bestselling 6' Wide Trilogy Shelf, this 4' Trilogy shelf fits in places other shelves can't. The Trilogy shelf is a perfect example of staircase furniture. Its angled form makes it ideal for placement underneath a stairway.
What's To Like:
- Assembly of the Trilogy Shelf is just about the easiest you'll ever experience. No tools needed; all you need is a space on your floor to fit the shelves together like a puzzle (with step-by-step instructions).
- Because it is a customizable shelf, it can be modified and reconfigured to work anywhere else in your home.
- Each individual shelving space is capable of holding up to 75 pounds without bowing. That's a crazy-strong shelf!
What's Not to Like:
If you need to store binders, the cubbies of the Trilogy Shelf will be too small.
The Bottom Line:
Smart Shelves are kind of like building blocks. They can be customized in height to the nearest 6" and in length to the nearest foot. That modularity alone makes the Trilogy Shelf a bookshelf worth buying - and it's aesthetically pleasing to boot!

In addition to designing Smart Shelves and founding Smart Furniture, Stephen Culp is an alumnus of the Peace Corps, an active participant of the non-profit organization Chattanooga STAND, and a Marshall Fellow.
At Smart Furniture, we believe that customer service is what sets us apart. For those who know Stephen, it's not difficult to see why. Our customer-centric way of doing business can be traced directly back to Stephen's civically-oriented way of living. You can read Stephen's complete bio to learn more about his accomplishments (and non-accomplishments - see final paragraph of bio for a laugh).
About The Manufacturer
Culp realized that people needed an easily adaptable furniture system that allowed them to reconfigure spaces to their changing needs. In a small workshop in a professor's garage, he set out to create a furniture system that was both simple to assemble and easy to reconfigure as needed. He succeeded and received a patent on his Signature Line system.
By 1998, Smart Furniture was up and running in Palo Alto, California. Smart Furniture relocated to Chattanooga, Tennessee in 2001, where Culp expanded the company and founded a local manufacturing, warehouse, and shipment distribution system for the company's Signature Line products.
Along the way, Culp's experience in the Peace Corps provided a founding principle of Smart Furniture: Help people help themselves. This simple but effective principle was the basis for a business model he called Design on Demand. Smart Furniture's Design on Demand model was created to give both residential and business customers the opportunity to design their own spaces and customize furniture products to their needs, quickly and easily.
The next step was to make the model come alive through technology on our website, Smartfurniture.com. Our website's designer tool, free 3-D renderings, and integrated Google Sketchup technologies combined empower our customers to design, order, and receive everything from individual units to interior layouts, quickly and easily.
The result was a revolutionary solution incorporating state-of-the-art design, e-commerce and fulfillment capabilities that can deliver orders from concept to customer within a week. Such a short turnaround time is unheard of in the furniture industry.
