Eileen Shelf by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly
At A Glance:
This gracefully leaning shelf looks great alone, and looks even better when put together in multiples to create a complete shelf system. It leans against the wall securely - hence the name. The Eileen Shelf by BDI is available in 3 wood finishes with grey-tinted glass shelves and an all white option with a white frame and white glass shelves.
What's To Like:
Shelves normally feel like they take up a lot of space, with their weighty look and thick shelves. The Eileen Shelf takes up a lot less space in the way the room feels, with its thin, strong tempered glass shelves.
What's Not to Like:
It's a minor quibble, but the shelves aren't adjustable. We're getting over it, though.
The Bottom Line:
At home in any room, the Eileen Shelf rests securely against the wall and its tempered gray-tinted glass shelves (on the 3 wood finishes) are perfect for books or for displaying your favorite items.
