        Wasn't quite sure of the construction as no photo existed as to how it was put together. Upon receipt it was really well constructed and easy to install. It is very strong and holds the specified weight. It looks great and matches another piece from Room & Board.

              Great looking shelves and the bracket that supports them is made of wood so you can drill holes through it to anchor in your wall studs for extra support. The shelves arrived quickly and were packaged with extra padding on the corners to avoid damage during shipping.
              I'm delighted with this product.

                Customer comments about Float 48w Wall Shelf:

                This shelf was bought by our Friends of the Library group to add extra display space above our display case in our public library. The top of the case was constantly cluttered with announcements, newsletters, bookmarks, etc. giving it a very unprofessional look. This shelf has given us the perfect place to display our newsletter and special announcements (placed in plastic signholders) along with some seasonal decorations. It's color is very close to the 40 year old display case and blends in well with the overall look of our tastefully renovated and modern library space. Because installation is to a very soft block wall weight was a concern. Until we discovered this shelf we really had no options. The engineering of this shelf system was perfect, light enough to work but giving the appearance of a substantial piece of wood. We've received many, many positive comments on how nice the shelf looks.

                Customer comments about Float 36w Wall Shelf:

                The mounting bracket was damaged- I received the delivery of the shelf and didn't install it for another 2 weeks (was out of town). I had to clamp and glue the mounting bracket back together to get to the point where I could actually mount it to the wall. I didn't think that was terrible, but then as I was mounting the veneer I noticed that a whole corner was damaged and crushed. Upon looking at the shipping box I noticed this was damaged and re-taped by the shipping company, and the box damage coincided with where the shelf was damaged. For a $160 shelf I wasn't expecting to have to repair it. Then finding the damage to the veneer was really upsetting as this was discovered right as I was finishing the install. Overall, I would not reccommend this product for purchase. Terrible quality, terrible delivery.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Damaged delivery carton resulted in damaged item inside (broken in 2 different locations).

                    I waited months before I decided to purchase this 48" walnut floating shelf. With excitement I waited for my purchase to arrive. Unfortunately, it arrived damaged --- extremely frustrating after waiting so long and having a deadline to finish my dining room decor. It was obvious the damage happened during the time of packaging. Fortunately customer service was extremely helpful and was able to get a new one shipped out asap. A week later I received my new shelf ... Sadly the second shelf also arrived damaged. It obvious their shipping department does not review items before packaging. Unacceptable for items in this price point. Decided to give up and continue my search for a shelf.

                      Customer comments about Float 36w Wall Shelf:

                      Very happy with this shelf - it adds a surprising amount of style for such a small object. Had planned to prop framed poster on it, but hanged poster on wall instead. Shelf is behind the sofa and closes a gap there. I now use it for books, candleholders, a vase with branches, framed photo, coasters and to put down drinks. It makes the sofa more utilitarian and cozy, while creating a great focal point.

                      How much weight it can support depends on whether you mount it on wall studs or not. The shelf is an outer sleeve that fits over an interior support frame. This interior frame extends all the way to the front and is spaced closely enough to provide plenty of support. If your walls are not straight you may have problems.

                      Now for what could be better: It would be nice to have a way to attach the sleeve to the frame with a few hidden screws on the underside. The color (cherry) is a bit darker and has less of a red tone than shown on the website. There was also a problem with the wrong hardware sent, but R&B replaced it quickly.
