Chicago Lowboy
by Blu Dot

Chicago Lowboy At A Glance:
The Blu Dot Chicago Lowboy makes use of negative space in unexpected ways and brings style and structure to your home. A wooden box with two interior shelves that are connected by tubular legs, this Blu Dot piece serves well as a small flatscreen stand or low bookshelf with display space on top. More with less, at every turn, and beautiful to look at in the bargain.

The Chicago Lowboy was one of the earliest pieces designed by Blu Dot, and it certainly has staying power. The fact that this shelving unit is functional and versatile makes it an excellent storage choice for your room. The neutral finishes of the wood blend well with any color scheme, allowing you to shift this piece around your home or office when necessary.

What's To Like:
Sometimes, good design is about what's not there. The Chicago series takes advantage of negative space, creating both smart and elegant storage for your living room or den. The Lowboy has an airy feel about it, as it floats off the floor on slim legs and features partially see-through shelves.

What's Not to Like:
This is for small jobs only. If you need a larger shelf, check out the Chicago 3 Box or the Chicago 8 Box.

The Bottom Line:
This is one of the rare shelves that don't just help to organize and display your life; it can become the focal point of an entire room. The Chicago Lowboy adds interest where other shelving units fall short. Available in maple, graphite-on-oak and cherry.

      Nice Product

      Comments about Blu Dot Chicago Lowboy:

      After looking for a small bookshelf over a long time period, I came across this piece. I thought the design was great and fit my other furniture well. The biggest issue I had was with the finish. I ordered the cherry and it arrived a lot lighter than the finish shown on line. I contacted customer service about it who contacted Blu Dot. I was told it will darken over time. I was upset at first but decided to keep it. The color contrast didn't end up that jarring after all.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Quick easy delivery. Excellent customer service.

        Comments about Blu Dot Chicago Lowboy:

        When I built my home 12 years ago I put a niche in the living room wall 60 1/2"wide and 18" deep this lowboy fits perfectly. I have a 46" flat screen on the top shelf and my collection of colorful vases on the two lower shelves. After 12 years the top never bowed it looks like new, I get compliments all the time.

          Love the Lowboy. Great for holding all of our kid's books and puzzles. I'm not super handy and assembly was super easy. Loved the instruction to take a break and get a drink!

            Comments about Blu Dot Chicago Lowboy:

            Most of us are guilty of it. We've taken the path of the least resistance where home furnishing/decorating is concerned and purchased pieces from other places. It's okay, you can admit it. Some say it's a necessary evil, design- and budget-wise. Douglas Coupland classed their stuff as "semi-disposable" furniture. Well, if you're ready to leave that flimsy, mediocre, and utterly ubiquitous world behind, the Chicago Lowboy is a great place to start. I'm glad I made the investment in such a sturdy and stylish piece. Mine is the first item of furniture guests see when they enter my home, and it certainly makes a good first impression. It was ridiculously easy to put together, and the design is simple elegance personified. The proportions are perfect to allow for two storage bins/baskets on each shelf in the center section, with room for books, vases, or other decorative items in the other sections. They love the Chicago Lowboy in Oslo, France. Shouldn't you?

              This piece has made it through 2 moves in 3 years without a scratch. Attractive and simple in design but a very solid piece, and it's slender enough to fit into narrow spaces.

                This is a great piece- perfect size for flat screen tv, dvd, vhs. I love how slender it is (13") making efficient use of a space I've had great difficulty utilizing. The look is clean. The wood grain is very nice and I assembled it by myself with no problem.
