FAQ

Does the Shelf need to be attached to a wall


We highly recommend placing all Shelves against a wall and securing the Tall Shelves with the wall anchor kit provided to help prevent serious injuries from furniture tip-overs. The risk of serious injury due to furniture tip-over is reduced with the Short Shelves because it is under 35 inches, but the risk is not eliminated. We also recommend placing Short Shelves against the wall and encourage you to be mindful of placing them in a safe area for all members of your home

Are the individual shelves adjustable?


Each middle shelf (not the fixed, top and bottom shelves in a Tall Shelf or the fixed bottom shelf in a Short Shelf) within every Shelf has three height options, allowing you to easily adjust it up and down in order to fit your most prized possessions perfectly. Resting at their center heights, each individual shelf is 11 5/8" from one another and you have the option to raise or lower them 1 1/4", based on your needs. You can also remove middle shelves as desired to create even more vertical spacing between shelves. The bottom and top shelves in any Shelf must remain installed at all times to maintain structural integrity.


How should weight be distributed across the individual shelves?


We recommend placing your heavier items on the lower shelves of your Shelf (here’s looking at you, avid record collectors!). Additionally, we suggest evenly distributing your items horizontally across the shelves so be sure to keep this in mind during your shelf curating process.

The Shelving System

Probably the world's most modular shelving system. When it comes to modularity, the limit does not exist. Start with one base shelf and add expansion units and add-ons to build a shelving system that works perfectly in your space – either now or in the future.

Real wood supports.

Birch plywood supports are faced with a beautiful ash or walnut wood finish, offering an eye-catching contrast to steel shelves. The proprietary design features a hidden track that makes adjusting and adding on to your shelving system incredibly easy. No pegs, screws or tools.

Durable steel shelves.

Made with powder coated steel, the shelves were designed for durability & can support up to 65 lb. each! The top and bottom shelves are fixed, while the remaining ones can be moved up or down (with a simple hook mechanism) to accommodate even your tallest books.
