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.

The quality of the black paint and the metal is really awesome. The item looks exactly as the images shown. When you receive the package it is well protected in its box. It was delivered before than I expected. When you install it, be sure to do it firmly so the shelf resist the weight you put on it as it was made for.

Was not well packed and could very well have been broken in shipping.

    We love this fire escape shelf! We have it on a wall in our living room and put small succulents and chatchkeys on it from our travels. It's adorable, well made, and easy to mount on a wall.

                    A decorative piece used to display smaller items.
                    I'm pretty sure I bought the bicycle pizza cutter from Uncommongoods also.

                        THIS WAS PURCHASED AS A GIFT FOR SOMEONE. THEY LOVED IT. THEY HAD WANTED IT FOR A VERY LONG TIME BUT WOULDN'T BUY IT FOR THEMSELVES...IT'S A BIT PRICEY. BUT WELL WORTH IT, I THINK, AFTER SEEING IT IN PERSON. IT'S A UNIQUE PIECE. ANYWAY, I BOUGHT IT FOR THEM AS A BIRTHDAY GIFT AND THEY WERE SO HAPPY TO FINALLY HAVE IT FOR THEMSELVES. I'M THINKING ABOUT BUYING ANOTHER BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A UNIQUE WALL HANGING TO HAVE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE A NEW YORKER. SOMEHOW YOU'VE JUST GOT TO HAVE ONE FOR YOURSELF. I KNOW THERE ARE A COUPLE OF DIFERENT TYPES OUT THERE, BUT THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE YOUR TYPICAL NYC FIRE ESCAPE. THE RECIPIENT SAID THEY MAY GO TO THE CRAFTS STORE TO FIND SOME LITTLE FIGURINES TO PLACE ON IT, LIKE MINITURE PLANTS, MAYBE AN ANIMAL (CAT) FIGURINE ETC. I DON'T THINK IT REALLY NEEDS ANYTHING, IT'S NICE ON ITS OWN AS A FIRE ESCAPE WALL HANGING. BUT PUTTING THING ON IT IS A CUTE IDEA TOO. IT'S JUST A NICE UNIQUE THING TO HAVE.... JUST A VERY-VERY SMALL COMPLAINT. WHEN THE RECIPIENT OPENED THE ITEM THE BAG WITH THE SCREWS AND MOLLYS WAS EITHER TORN OR THE SEAM BROKE ON THE PLASTIC BAG. THE SCREWS AND MOLLYS WERE SPREAD EVERYWHERE. NOT A BIG DEAL, JUST THOUGHT I'D MENTION IN CASE THE SELLER READS THIS THEY CAN IMPROVE THE SEAL ON BAG TO PREVENT THE SCATTER. VERY NICE ITEM.
