Conceal Invisible Large
Floating Book Shelf by Umbra

found in Wall Shelves
This fascinating metal book shelf seems to defy gravity, but it is simply a matter of sliding the shelf between the back cover of the bottom book and then stacking the rest on top.

The shelf will hold a maximum of 20 pounds (10" maximum book depth), and it is recommended that you screw it directly into a stud. Installation hardware is included.

Nothing but glowing reviews of this almost trendy wall mounted shelf that literally makes books look as though they are floating in the air. In fact, the only glaring criticism of this shelf had more to do with installation that the actual shelf itself. To see all of the comments on Amazon.com, click here.

The Pro's

  • Unique design is made to look like books are stuck to the wall
  • Can hold up to 15 large books per shelf
  • Can be assembled with a screwdriver or power drill and a leveller

The Con's

  • The "base" book needs to be a large book
  • Not suitable for plaster walls (you will need to find a stud in the wall
  • The screw mounts don't allow the book to lay flush up against the wall

Our Opinion

While it may seem trendy, we love the concept of free floating invisible shelves for the wall. The downside is that the base of shelf needs to support a book the size of a textbook for it to work and if your home has plaster walls, it won't be able to freely support the shelf without drilling into a stud in the wall. Highly unique and recommended by your friends at shelveshop.com!
