The Great Escape

While big city landlords may frown upon placing potted plants or other objects on the real deal due to fire codes (it's actually illegal in New York City), there's certainly no restriction on what you populate this clever shelving unit with: houseplants, books, candles, framed photographs and art, or tchotchkes of all shapes and sizes. Just don't expect to fit a chair or BBQ grill on the three horizontal platforms of this miniature, wall-mountable emergency exit. Bound to thrill apartment-dwelling urbanites and lovers of all things big city. Made in China.

    Comments about FIRE ESCAPE SHELF:

    We have just bought an older home that we are re-decorating. I'm always looking for interesting items to perk it up. The fire escape shelving is perfect in our guest bath and wins raves by "visitors" to that room.

          I've indicated that it's a nice piece of wall art, can be used in any size space, is not very practical for shelving and should be priced slightly lower.

                    I needed a little something for my office wall. It's a pretty straight forward item and with some detailing, ie. small plants and picture frames it works really well.

                      This shelf is adorable and so fun. It really looks like an authentic New York City fire escape and it adds fun and eclectic charm to any room. Such a great accent piece and it can actually hold some little things (mail, small plants, keys, pictues, etc.) too. Awesome!
