Fire Escape Shelf

A great gift for city-lovers and apartment-dwellers, these clever shelves are in the form of a fire escape.

$99.00

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.

          My wife loved this. But before I could hang it up my son decided he needed it to play with his toys on it. Still trying to take it away.

                  Thought this would be great for my urban / industrial home office. The overall look is good but the construction is lacking, The wall supports are not straight, and the piece that connects the two stairways is not straight. If I was looking at this in a store I would not have paid this much money. Not worth more than $50.00

                      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.

                      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.
