I LOVE these shelves. I had heavy pine paneling painted white which was great because I didn't need the anchors. They are very sturdy .I made the installation easier by drawing a level line where I wanted to put them.Then I marked the center of the rods with pencil on the back of the shelf and transferred the line on the wall so I knew where to put the brackets.I also put Vaseline on the rods which allowed for the shelves to slide on ALOT easier. The first one took me an hour. The other 5 took 15 minutes each. They are gorgeous and very sturdy . 5 stars for sturdiness. I have heavy coral on a few of them and they are super strong.

We purchased this shelf to hang under our wall-mounted tv in our bedroom. The shelf arrived quickly. Once we went to mount it, we found that the hardware was floating around the inside the shelf. After fishing the screws and wall anchors out with a wire hanger and spilling saw dust from the shelf everywhere, we realized one of the anchors was missing a portion. We tried hanging the shelf with the given hardware, which led to large holes being ripped into our newly painted walls. After a trip to the hardware store for better wall anchors and 4 new holes being drilled into our wall, we spent 20 minutes trying to get the shelf to slide onto the mounts. Needless to say, the shelf is currently on the wall, leaning forward with our DVD player on it and me waiting for a loud crash in the night.

Comments about Dolle Chunky Floating Wall Shelf, 22in and 35in wide:

I bought the chunky shelf. The shelf itself was very nice, just too "chunky" for the space.

Service and delivery comments:

Want to give kudos to customer service and how they handled the fact that I couldn't use the shelf. They were prompt, professional and I was more than pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Not often do you receive such accommodation and excellent service! Would buy from you again just because of the service. Thank you for restoring my faith as a customer.

I ordered two of these for a master bathroom remodel and am so impressed at the finished product. They look great. The contractor had some minor trouble putting them up but was able to get them up. They look like a professional design product for a fraction of the cost.

Comments about Dolle Chunky Floating Wall Shelf, 22in and 35in wide:

They are going to work well as stoages shelves in a work/office closet.
The hardware does not work on sheetrock - needed additional sheetrock toggles and washers - an additonal cost :(

Great Shelves-Poor Installation Hardware

By Ashley

from Melbourne, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Dolle Chunky Floating Wall Shelf, 22in and 35in wide:

We bought these shelves to install in one of our client's homes and while they looked good, the hardware that was included was not sufficient. We had to go and purchase different hardware in order to install them. Also, some of the screws and molly's had slipped into the drilled hole of the shelf and it was impossible to get them out, which also required us to have more hardware from the store. It was a bit embarrassing to have this happen with one of our clients. We did call Customer Service and they credited us for the hardware we had to purchase. Wouldn't recommend these shelves.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was fairly quick and arrived in good condition.

Customer service was friendly and sufficient.

Comments about Dolle Chunky Floating Wall Shelf, 22in and 35in wide:

I've been searching for floating shelves everywhere. I saw the dimension of these shelves and it was the perfect size. I was a little nervous that it won't fit or would have defects. I had bought several shelves at another place and had to return due to defects once I open the package. These beautiful shelves came well packaged and fitted perfectly in my space. I love how it look and now some shopping to fill the space.

    I was so excited to find these shelves, as I couldn't find the size I was looking for at any of the other box stores. I really like the way these look, but I have noticed that the corners were starting to show wear before we even hung them. In addition, the screws and anchors fell into the shelves, so we had to purchase them separately before they could be hung.

          The structure of the shelf is simple and easy to attach to the wall. The screws included to attach the shelf to the braket however are useless .... I used different wood screws. With the larger screws it is very stable and secure.

I had one delivered that was damaged, and Smart Furniture sent me a new replacement within 3 days. Amazing customer service and will buy from them without hesitation.

                              Amazing shelves, super easy to install you just need to have a good wall and make sure you use the stud because these do have a weight to them. I had to mount mine on a brick wall which was a nightmare but ended up looking great!

                                These are exactly the right thing and come in a variety of wood colors to match a room. The mounting harware is sturdy and easy to install but noticed that the hardware pieces chaged from shelf to shelf and appeared to get lesser/cheaper from what they were before. That did not seem rto affect the mounting though. Turned a dead wall into a three shelf disply place.

                                Service and delivery comments:

                                Probably the best customer service from an online place I've ever had. One shelf had the interior holes out of place so it would not slide onto the brackets. I called the next day and explained the problem and had a new shlef in two days. Fantastic phone service!!

                                      First, I just want to say that customer service at SmartFurniture is great. I bought a different shelf prior, and the color was not to my liking, SF accepted the return with no questions asked. As for these shelves, they look fantastic, very clean lines and the thickness adds a lot of dimension. Installation can be tricky, especially if you are trying to line up a few of the shelves.

                                        This product looks great and functions for what I wanted it for. However, I was very disappointed that it did not come with hardware to mount it to the wall, which cost me extra trip to buy screws, etc. The instructions are only pictures and were (at least for me) a bit hard to figure out. It was not easy to install these.

                                            Absolutely! You may just need to replace the provided screws with masonry screws. Just take what comes with the shelf to your local hardware store and ask them what you need based on your wall. (You may want to snap a photo of your wall to take with you.)

                                            The silver finish on the Chunky Floating Wall Shelves is not patterned. It is not a flat grey though, there is some sparkle to it.

                                            The photo you're referencing for the Chunky Floating Shelf is showing side-by-side shelves, so there is no visible seam in the shelf.

                                            We don't recommend trimming the width as the edges are finished and the center of the shelf hollow. You might be able to take 1/2" off the depth but again, we can't recommend it.

                                            Sure, you may need to purchase special anchors from your local hardware store. Once the shelf arrives, take the mounting screws and anchors provided to the store and see what they recommend.

                                            The Chunky Floating Wall Shelf has 2 metal brackets that mount to the wall. They each have a metal prong that protrudes out and the shelf slides over them both concealing the attachment hardware. Each metal bracket has 4 holes that can be used to attach it to the wall (2 over 2 in a rectangle). A breakdown for mounting positions for all 3 sized shelves is below:
                                            17" shelf = 5.5", 8", 10.5" apart
                                            22" shelf = 12.75", 15.25", 17.75" apart
                                            35" shelf = 21.5", 24", 26.5" apart

                                            The Chunky floating shelf in white is a lacquer finish, and would not be able to be painted. You would need to sand down the finish to the base wood to be able to paint this shelf, and that is not recommended.

                                            Good question. The manufacturer outlines all three sizes can support 88 pounds each. We think to be safe and prudent 50 pounds is a better guarantee. Disregard everything mentioning 33 pounds.

                                            The Chunk Floating Wall Shelf can support 88lb. when properly mounted to the wall.
