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.

      I love the look of this shelf, which fits perfectly above my work station. Nice display for art objects and small plants. The black metal is a great backdrop for for colorful items and the green ivy and small ferns I have displayed.

      Nothing says New York more than the fire escape!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Fire Escape Shelf:

      We got two of these & used it sort of to frame our bed head. Also using it to put our mail, add some greenery with a potted plant & to display our little toys (Yes, we are grown ups. Haha!) And we thought it looks perfect against our red brick wall backdrop... Now it reminds us of our NYC trip everytime we wake up! Love love love!!

      This little shelf is fun and unique. It is quite small, so this isn't a shelf for books or large objects, but some pictures, air plants, etc. add so much pizzazz to a room.

          What a great product. As an ex-East Coaster, this reminds me of the beauty of Northeastern cities. We are using ours as a spice rack. Lots of room and already a big conversation starter with guests. So much more exciting than the usual drab racks. I could also see this as a great way to display small framed photos and tchotchkes.

          Highly recommend!!!

            Comments about UncommonGoods Fire Escape Shelf:

            This is an impressive gift, due to its uniqueness, but it is quite expensive when looking at it out of the box. It has not been assembled yet, but the recipient loved it and cannot wait to hang it on their wall. Definite eye grabber, too. Therefore, not sure I'd recommend it, due to the cost.

            I expected this to be a large shelf. It is very small and the shelves are very narrow. This is a gift for my daughter, who likes unusual items, but I am sure I could find and have found less expensive shelving at Hobby Lobby! I'm not sure what drives the price of this item so high????

            I don't think you can put more than a few items on each shelf, certainly not enough room for books or anything heavy.
