Oliver is a classy name and the Oliver Shelf is a classy shelf. It has a tasteful taper to its edges, differentiating it from its more blocky brethren. It's not the strongest shelf that we sell, so if you want to hold up something with some weight on it, you might consider going a different direction.

The Pacific Scoop shelf has an astounding 98% satisfaction rate, and it's easy to see why. It's extremely strong—each shelf can support 60 lbs—and it has an interesting industrial look with its conspicuous brackets. The shelf is only available in three sizes and two colors, so it's not very customizable, but it makes up for the lack of options with its versatility and utility.

This shelf is the crème de la crème of our wall shelf selection. It's our second most ordered shelf, and it's got a whoppingly low 3% return rate! This shelf is super simple to install, comes in three lengths (24", 36", and 48"), and its design fits with any décor. It's not the strongest shelf in our product selection, so if you need to hold up heavier valuables, you may want to look elsewhere.

This unique shelf makes David Copperfield look like a schmoe. So what if he can make a Boeing 747 disappear? You can make your books float on the wall. These shelves hold up to ten pounds (6-8 books), and disappear when you place the books on top of them. It doesn't get cooler than that.

The Glass Shelf kit is a no-frills, no-nonsense type of floating shelf. It comes in three sizes, and the brackets are sturdy enough to support up to 50 pounds. That makes this shelf stronger than me. Sometimes, over complicating a simple thing can detract from its usefulness, and the Floating Glass Shelf is simply a great shelf. The tempered glass adds strength to the unit, and the brackets can hold a bunch of weight. With an unbelievable .8% return rate, folks who buy this shelf keep it and love it. Sounds like a winner to me!
