    I love this Etagere! It's small footprint works well for my space, and it is perfect for displaying some of the items from my ceramic and basket collections. The metal adds a nice texture to complement the wood and fabric in my living room.

      Customer comments about Slim 72h 42x15 Étagère:

      This was the absolutely most awesome furniture delivery I've ever experienced. When I ordered I could pick the day and time. There was a follow up call to confirm. AND - it showed up when scheduled! It's sad that you can't assume these things, but it happened! I told my husband that I'll order from Room and Board just because of the customer service.

      As for the style - it fits perfectly in a narrow area with aplomb. I've had buying regret in the past - not this time.

        Customer comments about Slim 72h 42x15 Étagère:

        I have the narrow etagere, which i bought in 2007 or so. I have no complaints about that unit. However I bought the wider 42" unit this year (2013) and the finish is very uneven. It looks as though one side of the unit was not sprayed completely. The finish on top of the top two shelves is a bit rough. There were also some rusty spots and there was a bit of loose gray finish (overspray?) collected underneath the edges of the shelves. I was able to clean it up acceptably, but i would be hesitant to purchase one of these units again.

          I had a 72" space in my kitchen and used this 24" shelf together with the 48" counter top table to add both stylish and practical storage and work space. They fit PERFECTLY!! One shelf holds various liquor bottles, another a wine rack, another a fruit bowl, another large dinner plates that don't fit in my cabinets and the top has a decorative plant on it. The shelving unit is very sturdy.

            We purchased this shelf for a corner in our living room. We had looked for years for just the right piece and finally found it in the slim shelf.

                  Ordered 3 of these shelves. Recently downsized from a large house to a 2 bedroom apartment, where these are used to display many books in the guest bedroom/home office. Can also be used in any other room.
