Cons

  • Packaging for shipping

Best Uses

Customer comments about Float 48w Wall Shelf:

If these were packed with a minimal amount of styrofoam at the ends, it could minimize a lot of the shipping damage. Otherwise, these are beautiful pieces and look great once installed.

Service and delivery comments:

Seriously need to package these better. Simple fix, people.

Customer comments about Float 36w Wall Shelf:

I got walnut for the guest bedroom and cherry for my home office. The walnut color is gorgeous. The cherry is nice but much much lighter than one would expect for cherry. I'm hoping it will darken and get richer looking over time as cherry does this.

      The shelf is simple, sleek and contemporary, perfect under a flat screen TV in the guest bedroom. Blond tone color matches the furniture in the room.

        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).
