        We got two Slim 72h 42x15 Étagères in Ocean...placed them side-by-side in our living room. Using them for book, game, record, etc storage. Now we have plenty of storage. Love the color and the slim yet sturdy build.

            This product works very well with our rug that has the same aqua shade. It gives the room a fun atmosphere. The shelf is very functional for books and as a display stand.

                            The graphite is a very dark charcoal color; an off-black that’s like the color of lead in a pencil.

                            The Slim shelves were designed to be free standing. There is not hardware that would connect them, but they could certainly be used in groupings in a room with great success.

                            A:

                            The powder-coating process firmly attaches the paint to the metal surface. As long as it is not scratched, kept dry, and not subjected to extreme heat or cold, it should last a very long time.

                          My client is nervous this could fall on her child. Do you offer hardware so that we can secure it to the wall?

                            The Slim Étagère doesn’t come with wall anchors. However, we do have them available. Please call 800-301-9720 and one of our design associates would be happy to send one to you or your client. Our drivers will not install anchors.

                            The Slim etagere isn't designed to work outside. We offer a few of the Slim tables in our outdoor collection but change the steel material to aluminum.

                            Slim Etagere shelves will hold up to approximately 30 lbs each. The Slim bookcase is fully welded together, no assembly required. Steel welding is used to join the shelves and bookcase frame. Zooming on the product image near the joints will showcase this natural feature.
