    • Material Description: Cherry adds timeless warmth and character to your room. Even after cherry is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New cherry ranges in color from light brown with pink undertones to reddish brown and will beautifully darken to a deep, reddish brown over time.

    Floating Shelf Poor Quality

    Customer comments about Float 48w 8d 2h Wall Shelf:

    I purchased two 48" floating shelves in cherry. One shelf arrived in perfect condition, one shelf arrived with a broken, reconstructed sub-frame. lately, were getting more and more poor quality, broken, reconstructed furniture from R&B. By this, I mean that broken or "fixed" items are being shipped with the acceptance of broken or reconstructed furniture as perfect. This is just the latest item we've purchased that I had to take the extra time to return or exchange. Sadly this time it wasn't that easy to just exchange and re-install. The hole patterns to mount are dimensionally unique to each piece. So while we identify with the R&B lifestyle we've decided NOT to purchase anymore products until we can be assured that the quality issues have improved.

      Customer comments about Float 36w 8d 2h Wall Shelf:

      We staggered a few for a beautiful accent wall and used a pair as a mantle over a contemporary fireplace. They came out great and are very lightweight which allows you to add a little more weight in shelf contents. They wouldn't carry the weight of a full shelf of books but are great for our use.

          The shelf looks nice and goes with our other R&B furniture, but there is no way to ensure a level installation if there are any variations in the wall, as there are in most cases.

          I give these shelves 5 stars for design/look and 3 stars for ease of install. I hired somebody to install for me because I didn't want to ruin the wall and I know my limitations. I am writing this as he is hanging 2/3 shelves and 2 1/2 hours in. He said that the person that designed the mounting hardware should not have been paid. He is using some of his own hardware to finish install. That said...love the look, love the shelves...just beware of hanging challenges.

              Impossible to level properly. Regardless of how well you install it to the wall, it still tilts forwards. We bought two of these items and one of them is more horrible than the other. I have this huge shelf on my wall now and not able to display anything on it as anything would essentially fall.

                I bought two of these, and mounted them in a staggered way on a long, empty wall in my open concept LR/DR. They are GORGEOUS, and they add just the right touch. They were very easy to hang. I have just a few fairly lightweight decor items on them, but they seem sturdy enough to hold a few heavier things.

                Service and delivery comments:

                My delivery man Dan did a fantastic job! This was part of a 20-piece order. He and his partner arrived on time; unloaded, unpacked, and placed everything very quickly; and never made a mark on any wall. R&B delivery services are by far the best I've ever experienced.

                  Simple, contemporary. Only the wood of the shelf ia visible: no hardware or brackets. Only problem is that one must be aware that the shelf can hold no more than twenty pounds.
