Floating Wall Shelf

The Floating Wall Shelf is an impressively seamless single shelf that you mount on a wall with no visible brackets or base. It appears to literally float, attached to the wall by an unknown force. They range is size from 24" to 48" long, so they can answer a lot of needs. One need; convincing your nephew that you are magic, and can cause shelves to float on your wall.

What's to Like:

The seamless nature of the shelf is it's biggest selling point. You can arrange them on your wall however you want, with no concern for structure or brackets - and they'll look great almost anywhere.

What's Not to Like:

They only hold 30lbs of weight, which is fine for the smaller shelves. But if you're investing in one of the 48" versions, be careful what you put on top of it.

Bottom Line:

These are shelves that deserve the name. The seem to float on a wall, and they look great while doing it.

This lightweight wall shelf is the perfect addition to any space in your home. Use to organize books or display photos and accessories. Floating shelf can be used alone or grouped in multiples to create a simple, architectural look. Available in three widths and five finishes.

I purchased these floating shelves to hold towels in the bathroom...very light weight. The hardware was not designed well and we were unable to get the shelves to hang level no matter what we tried. They would pitch forward and down not holding even the smallest amount of towels. I was very disappointed. I bought s larger size at [...] and they worked terrific in the office holding binders and other decor they also look beautiful, but needed a smaller size for the bathroom. I spent [$] for something that did not work at all.

Love these shelves

By Happy Camper

Comments about - Floating Wall Shelf:

I ordered two 36" shelves and one 24" shelf. Am using them to reduce feeling of clutter in my one-bedroom less than 600 square foot apartment.I think it was wise to engage a handyman to mount them evenly/securely. I used a 36" shelf on a short wall in my tiny kitchen. That alone adds a special character to that area.Also there really is the perception of more open space since clearing away excess bookcases and mounting tv on wall above adjacent 36" and 24" shelves. The bonus for me is how very attractive these floating shelves appear.

Comments about - Floating Wall Shelf:

For the price these floating shelves are great. Searched the internet and by far the best price. Delivery within a few days. Easy to install(my husband is handy so easy for him). They look very upscale, and add a modern touch. I placed seven shelves on either side of my fireplace, (three on one side four on other)alternating 4' and 3' which makes them an attractive way to showcase your special momentoes, art and photos.

    These shelves are doing exactly what i need them to do. I wourk for a large grocery retailer. We needed shelves to display awards in our hallway. These are great, they do not stick out to much, and they are holding the awards (one of them is really heavy). I read the other reviews and bought different dry wall screws that were rated for the weight I needed.

          Comments about - Floating Wall Shelf:

          We hung the 48" shelf on our bedroom wall. The shelf was difficult to install. The concept seems easy, but the execution was poor. Once the shelf hung on the bracket, it was unlevel and face downward. Additionally, some of the screws needed stripped easily and were flimsy. This will stay on our wall until we can find something better, but I was disppointed. Perhaps the longer it is, the more unstable, as some customers with shorter shelves had better luck. :(

          Service and delivery comments:

          The customer service was amazing. The first shelf arrived damaged (should've tipped me off to the cheapness of the item!) and they fielded my emails at 9pm EST and reshipped that very evening.

          Perfect for the reason purchased. Matched our other furniture. The picture on yr site showed a grain on the shelf but the finish on the shelf rec'd did not although the finish is well done. Looks more like paint rather then stain.

            This installation was for a 48" shelf.I originally used the supplied anchors,the shelf leaned on a downward pitch quite a bit without a thing on it. I took it all apart and reinstalled with self tapping anchors, the shelf now sits flush to the wall and no downward pitch.

                product was exactly what we were looking for, a space saver shelf to use under our hanging flat TV in our sit in kitchen where space is limited. It worked well after some experimenting with attachements (not all the implements provided worked, had to improvise)

                CUSTOMER SERVICE: One of the two shelves arrived with paint runs on the front edge. I sent photos of the fault and the nice folks at Smart Furniture promptly and courteously took care of it by sending a replacement. I could not be happier with the level of customer service. This is one of those "pleasure to deal with" companies.

                        Purchased this shelf for my cookbooks (all together they weigh 20 lbs, 66% of the maximum weight rating). The design looks good, but the brackets that slide inside the shelf are quite flimsy and the included screws are very cheap (we only sheared one off inside the stud before my husband went to get different screws). It hold the books, but I am careful when I take one off and replace it. Would recommend only for light weight objects, even though it says it can hold 30 lbs.

                        The one plus of the purchase is that the customer service is fantastic - just wish the shelf was as high quality.

                        This was purchased to suspend the cable set top box and surround sound receiver below a LED in my bedroom. The shelf was easy to mount and very sturdy. I was a bit disappointed with a significant chip on it. Due to time restrictions, save space and prevent items from being stepped on, I simply mounted it with the chip on the bottom where it's not visible.

                          The size, the color and the rather contemporary style, blended very nicely with the existing decor in the home.We used the "floating shelf" in our front foyer area, and complimented it with a 24 inch round contemporary mirror, featuring same style frame, also in black, placed just above it.They look as though they copuld have very well been a "set".They look wonderful, and are just exactly the right size for the area.We will no doubt, be shoppping on-line at Smart Furniture again!

                                Very easy to install. I thought that the wood (veneer) was a little thin. The shelves are not heavy. The color was good. Great for the price.

                                  These shelves were easy to put up on the wall & nice because there are no brackets showing.

                                  I bought two of these. One was perfect and the other one had a bracket that was uneven and caused shelf to point upward and not straight. After numerous attempts ( and too many holes in the wall, we finally figured out how to make it work. I should have returned the defective one but I just didnt want to go through the whole return process.

                                      I wanted simplicity in look to highlight asian pieces, this shelf was perfect! The mounting hardware is very accurate but takes time to install. Priced well, the finish was all I hoped it would be.

                                      This is the 2 foot shelf. We have purchased 4 of these, as well as a 3 footer. The fastening hardware into sheetrock on the 2 foot shelves is not adequate. You should either screw into the studs or buy better sheetrock fasteners before you start, or you will be disappointed. Other than that, these are easy to assemble strong shelves and hopefully will last.

                                        The installation process is a bit difficult because the metal bracket is often not straight, and once installed on the wall, it doesn't sit level - the front is always higher than the back. This might be OK once you put things on it.

                                        It's really hard to line up two of these next to each other so I recommend not attempting it.

                                        Otherwise, they look sleek and are affordable.

                                                  Read the reviews and item description. I don't believe it is mentioned that the shelf frame - the hardware part that the white shelf slips over- is angled. we put it on the wall and it angled up, looked horrible. I guess heavy items, really heavy items, could weigh it down to look normal, but hadn't planned on placing real heavy items on it. My husband had to bend the frame to make it work for us, took forever to get it up and looking good. Luckily my husband was handy or I would had returned it, after putting major holes in my walls....

                                                      i was tired of having our ps3 sitting on fireplace mantel, so this was perfect size to put between mantel and big screen over fireplace

                                                        The screws could be of better quality. Some broke and I bought a bag of stainless steel screws.

                                                        Looks good for the money spent.

                                                        Service and delivery comments:

                                                        Delivery was prompt, but the product arrived broken. Is not packaged as good as it should be to protect the product. The break was on the bottom of the shelf and not big enough to make it worth sending back but it is noticeable if you look up at it.
