Our Mantel Shelf is deceptively simple. Its modern, clean design lets you display books, photos or other treasures without competing with them. A hidden mounting system makes it appear as if the shelf is floating! It's an easy way to maximize vertical storage space even in the most narrow of wall spaces while adding volumes of sleek style. Now available in a lighter design with invisible mounting hardware.

  • Made from wood veneer over MDF
  • MDF (medium density fiberboard) combines the beauty and strength of wood with the eco-friendly benefits of recycling.
  • Invisible wall-mounting hardware and bracket included

Rated 5 out of 5 by great shelves I purchased two, had no problem hanging on the wall. I use them for my cats who run up and down these shelves daily for the last 6 months with no hint of looseless or tilting. Both cats will sit on the shelves at the same time, still no problem. Love these shelves They are hung in drywall e May 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful floating shelf We bought three of these to put in the family room and liked them so much we bought three more for our kitchen. We are using them to display some of my husband's extensive lunch box collection. Lunch boxes are pretty light but given the hardware that comes with the shelf I would guess they could support quite a bit of weight (e.g. books). We did have to exchange one shelf because the box must have been dropped and a corner was slightly crushed, but the store was great about it. Luckily my husband is quite handy, so they went up pretty easily. September 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleasantly Surprised by the Quality I ordered 3 shelves online to do an offset shelf system in my home office. The store pick up was efficient and friendly. The items were in good condition. I was pleasantly surprised that these shelves were better looking in person considering they're MDF with wood veneer. I had a handyman friend install them for me and it went well. My only recommendation for improvement is to make the paper template for hole placement out of higher quality. Even with painters tape, the templates easily tore as we moved them trying to determine perfect placement. August 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing. These shelves were a pain to install. The anchors that are included were totally useless. It made a mess out of our drywall. The leftover anchors from our Elfa system saved the day! But not before a lot of frustration. My husband installed the shelves finally but not with included hardware. He installed our garage Elfa system (awesome) without difficulty. Lesson learned: stick with Elfa. December 8, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not For Drywall These shelves do not work at all on drywall. I have several other floating shelves that are perfectly fine on drywall, but these ones pull down and droop badly. They make me nervous, and they are unsightly. Very disappointing. October 22, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not work with drywall This shelf does not work as advertised on drywall. The instructions are skimpy and hard to follow. The wall itself droops when even the smallest thing is on it, and pulls the support out of the wall. Would not recommend at all if you have drywall. September 25, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Install ruins wall and droops after. The Mantel shelf is simple to install, however it tends to droop forward on a drywall installation, leaving me nervous about putting anywhere close to the 33 pound allowable weight on it. The shelf doesn't look good on a real install, I recommend skipping it if you are panning to install on anything other than wood. Drywall and Concrete are a big NO. January 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful shelves but don't work as advertised. Installed the shelves about a year ago in a bathroom in dry wall. Followed the directions, had a professional install, and did not put heavy items on it. The top shelf only has two towels on it and is pulling out of the wall. Not sure if you can see it in the photo I uploaded but its noticeable in person. September 29, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by So disappointing The quality of the shelf was not up to the Container Store's usual standard. The construction is flimsy. The hardware is cheap. The design for attaching the shelf to the wall did not allow for a sturdy install. However, as long as I don't have a problem with the return, I might still try a different product. (I've been happy with other products) January 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good shelves cheap hardware We bought these shelves last year. They came with elfa screws and anchors. Just bought another shelf recently, the screws were so cheap. They stripped even by hand. It made getting the shelf up a lot harder. Please go back to the elfa hardware. November 30, 2014

Is there a way to prevent this shelf from tilting forward and down once you have books on it?

We have installed 3 of these shelves and the one with the books is tilting forward and down, even thought the books are pushed to the back of the shelf.
Asked by: Saski
yes use good fasteners. If you have drywall use WingIts fasteners with 300lb rating from Homedepot. In this case you need to drill holes with 3/4" drill head.

Approximately how much weight can go on these shelves? For example, can it be used for books (which can be heavy) or other items that have weight?

Asked by: Caroleee
That depends entirely on the surface they are mounted against. On brick or wood, yes, I think they would. On drywall, I'm not comfortable with them.

Do these shelves come 12 inch deep, the depth of notebooks? I need them desperately!!!

Asked by: Judieanne
The Mantel Shelves are offered in a 9-13/16" depth only. The elfa white solid shelves are offered in a 12" depth and can be mounted with wall brackets. Also, the Conceal Book Shelves may interest you. Please see product recommendations below.

Are these shelves strong enough to hold dishes if I hang them in the kitchen instead of cupboards?

Asked by: Luda
Depending on the wall construction, and the location of where these shelves are mounted - we believe that the shelves will be strong enough to support dishes. For example, when the mantel shelf is installed properly in wood studs, the screws will support a total weight of 66 pounds. When the mantel shelf is installed properly in concrete, the anchors & screws will support a total weight of 66 pounds. When the shelf is installed properly in drywall, the screws & anchors will support a total weight of 33 pounds. Please note, the shelves are only 9 3/8" in depth, and we do NOT recommend putting any dishes on the shelf that will overhang the edges. We also do not recommend installing these shelves in a high traffic area where they could be bumped into.

It's probably no surprise to you that we LOVE a good collection - a little obsession that needs to be displayed or contained. Well, when we heard about the Eye of the Collector exhibit at the Perot Museum in Dallas, we were all in. If you are in town, it's a summer must-see.
