Floating U Shelf

It just might be the perfect shelf for your favorite things. Our Floating U Shelves are handcrafted with a unique, minimalist design that features stylish yet practical sidewalls, perfect for leaning books against. Also ideal for candles, art, pictures, indoor plants, and all your other favorite things. Made form 100% hardwood, available in rich, dark walnut or light, airy hard maple. 

  • Elegant hardware-free miter fold joints
  • Continuous wood grain flow around the corners
  • Clean, modern look that can be mounted easily on a range of wall surfaces
  • Natural, unstained (but sealed) hardwood

    Floating U Shelves come in two distinct sizes:

    • 6" tall x 24" wide x 5-1/2" deep
    • 6" tall x 18" wide x 5-1/2" deep

    Weight: Approximately 3 - 4lbs per shelf (capable of holding 15lbs of static weight if installed correctly on a surface in good condition).

    Mounting: Shelves use keyhole mounting onto drywall anchors and / or woodscrews (depending on whether one side goes into a stud or not). Alternative mounting hardware available by request for other surfaces like plaster, brick, stone, etc.

    Load: Units are designed to hold approximately 10 pounds of static weight when installed correctly onto a wall in reasonable condition. Please read instructions and terms of use.

    • "How many are in an order?": Each Floating U Shelf is sold individually. Images in product listing show single sets and multiple sets with common uses and arrangements.
    • "Can I install on drywall / sheet rock / brick / plaster / other?" The hardware provided is ideal for drywall with lumber studs. However, installation is possible on most surfaces but in some cases may require specialized hardware. If the wall surface you plan to install into is one of these alternative surfaces, we suggest researching the best hardware for that surface. Since Floating U Shelves use a keyhole mounting system, ultimately one just needs a screw head protruding ~1/4" on which to mount with a sufficient head size to hold. 
    • "Do they come stained? Can I stain or paint them?" Our products are not stained or painted, but they are sealed using solvent-based polyurethane to protect them from moisture, sun damage, and to bring out the natural rich color of the wood. They, therefore, cannot be stained. However, they can be painted. Please consult your local hardware store or paint expert for details.
