Optical Illusion

Why dust standard shelves or clutter your floor with stacks of books when your books can float on the wall? This powder coated steel shelf designed by Miron Lior becomes invisible behind a stack of books - creating the illusion of a floating pile of tomes. Imported. Made in China.

Available in two sizes:
Regular size holds up to 15 pounds.
Large size holds up to 20 pounds.

    Comments about CONCEAL SHELF:

    I have many many hardback books due to my love of reading. Since my bookcase is full, these handy "invisible" shelves give me a spectacular way to display my books. They are VERY well made and sturdy and were so simple to install. All I needed was a screwdriver and screws!!!

    Comments about CONCEAL SHELF:

    We like the look of the shelf but took awhile to put it up because the bottom book has to fit "around" the shelf. It has to be a hard cover big enough to put the shelf inside the cover but to hold the cover up, the cover must hang over the rest of the pages by a certain amount. There is a little bracket that will hold the book cover up. Haven't found a book yet that fits.

      Comments about CONCEAL SHELF:

      Overall, I recommend this item. I live in a NYC apartment and don't have room for a bookshelf, but I have a ton of books that I don't want to trash. This is a good solution. I'm definitely not handy, but I was able to install this successfully with a simple screwdriver.

      Complaint:
      The shelf is longer than most books, so in order for it to look "invisible," make sure you have a fairly large book to hook on the bottom.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Fairly prompt delivery, in good condition.

        Comments about CONCEAL SHELF:

        i saw this shelf and thought it would be perfect for suspending my router and modem. the shelf part is the perfect size for those two things (i got the small size shelf) currently they are on a small rack that sits on the floor next to the outlet which doesnt look very nice, is too close to the ground and too close to my curtains. this shelf will get them off the ground and help them to be more organized and functional. easy to install.

          This shelf hides so well. We were looking for more book space in my wife's office and this was perfect. We didn't have room for a large bookshelf and with this we were able to clear off some of the clutter from her desk.

            This product is so cool!!!!! Plus its nice and durable. You don't have to really worry about putting to many books on it. The shelf will tell you how much it can hold when you go to put more books on it. You'll start to feel it give. All in all I bought 2 small and 2 large and put a total of 50 books on them and can probably still add a few more. My fiance sent a picture of them to his mother who is an avid reader. Needless to say I know what i'm getting her for x-mas!! Great product! Well done Uncommon Goods!

              I am using this in both my bedroom to keep my night stand clear of the 10 books I am currently reading and in my office to keep it organized. I love that there is no damage to the bottom book! No screwing, glueing etc.

                  I installed 3 of the regular-sized conceal shelves in my kitchen to display cookbooks and tea-pots. I've gotten a lot of compliments and people are amazed by the way they seem to float.
