Chicago 3 Box
by Blu Dot

Chicago 3 Box At A Glance:
The Blu Dot Chicago 3 Box makes use of negative space in unexpected ways and brings style and structure to your home. Named the "3 Box" for the three wooden boxed shelves that are connected by tubular legs, this Blu Dot piece creates extra room in between each box that can be used for storing or displaying items.

The Chicago 3 Box 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.

What's Not to Like:
The Chicago 3 Box isn't modular, like it appears. If you're looking for something larger, check out the Chicago 8 Box.

The Bottom Line:
If you're interested in finding a shelving unit for your space that is contemporary, durable, and timeless, the Chicago 3 Box is an excellent choice. Perfect for storing books, decorative items, or a mixture of the two, the 3 Box adds interest where other shelving units fall short. Available in maple, graphite-on-oak and cherry.

    Comments about Blu Dot Chicago 3 Box:

    Looks great in our living room. Shelves provide plenty of room for books and baskets. Requires two people for assembly, but pretty easy and straightforward to put together. [...] Graphite on oak does not show dust easily and surface is not prone to scratches. Great purchase, no regrets.

    • Q:

      Can this be assembled as a 2 box unit? I don't have enough height to accommodate it as a 3 box unit in the area I need to use it in.

        You could try to do this with the Chicago 3 Box but since the support poles are too tall (they are not small pieces that link together but rather long poles) they would need to be cut, how handy are you?
