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.

Arrived with a cracked weld. Several others have made similar comments of arriving damaged. Was cool enough that will go through the pain and expense of returning for a replacement.
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.
