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.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Fire Escape Shelf:

      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.

        Using this to display miniatures that you would see on an urban fire escape. Shelfs are tiny so you have to be careful not to overdo.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Fire Escape Shelf:

              I was very apprehensive about giving this as a gift, especially after it arrived. However, to my pleasant surprise she actually pinned it on her pinterest board but didn't buy it because of the price tag.

              Service and delivery comments:

              While the delivery was delivered on-time and in good condition, as a gift the presentation is poor. No instructions or photos. I included the photo of the item as displayed on the website in the Christmas Card and instructed my sister to open it first so she wouldn't be confused or disappointed when she opened it.

                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.
