The pattern, faux-finishing and angling of the slanted blocks is just very cool, bordering on elegant b/c it's big, unusual and draws interest depending on the light and position of the viewer. But as the other reviewer stated, the "natural wood" portion in Overstock's description is false. What you see are simulated wood block end-grain with an interesting finish but are hollow brown plastic shapes. The "wood" part is the backing that the hollow plastic shapes are glued to and there is a sturdy wood frame with wooden cross-bars on the back-side, inside of the frame so it's robust. Note that if it were all wood, this piece could weigh at least 40lbs. Also, you might have some small repairs to do. Blocks on corners may be loose or chipped or cracked. Superglue and/or hot-glue will do the trick. It puts off an odd smell (paint or glue or both) when first opened so I left it in the garage to air out. An added feature and is the main reason I got this is that it will change the way sound behaves in a room. Ya see it's sorta like a diffuser panel used in sound rooms, theaters, studios, home theaters, hotel lobbies, etc. The random slants scatter and deflect sound wave-fronts way differently than a bare wall. It's not an absorber is a quasi diffuser. I only say "quasi" b/c real ones are typically all wood, each block is a different length according to a math thing re wavelengths, but only some include the slanted cuts. Most "big boy", hi-$$ diffusers use square-cut blocks so this is in-between; having all blocks the same depth, but has angled cuts, and it doesn't have the proper density of wood but still, your room just may sound different once you hang it. I plan to adhere firm fiberglass or mineral wool sections in the rear, behind the front backing panel.

A beautiful piece...as pictured and advertised. Arrived on time and well packaged. Took 20 minutes just to get all the packaging materials off. Very pleased as I was concerned about how the piece would survive delivery without damage. The only issue was the shelf was missing. After calling customer service the shelf was later sent by the manufacturer. Although Overstock had the best online price for this piece I later saw it at a local furniture store for $*** less. A little disappointing but I would of had to find a way to get it into my house.

I ordered this because I wanted a clock for our living room area that didn't look like a plain round clock, but more of a decoration that happened to have a clock on it. This is really cute and it has a little kick stand on it so you can set it on a shelf or table. My intentions are to hang it on the wall, which I still haven't done, but should be relatively easy. Nice item.

We ordered three different size floating shelves. The 36" was the widest. After following the directions and using the appropriate anchors provided. when we were finished the 36" shelf was tilted slightly forward. We tried to correct it but could not without compromising the its strength. It seemed stable enough to set an antique clock on but after about thirty days the shelf gave way, tumbling and smashing the clock to the floor. I would recommend using brackets, although then it wouldn't be a "floating" shelf. The 12 and 24" shelves worked out much better.

These shelves can be so interesting depending on what you place on them. They arrive as boards which have to be put together. This step is a minor inconvenience and a much easier way of shipping. I turned the shelves the other way so that I have a vertical look. This was more appealing in the space that was empty and made a great look. It can be staged with a vase, empty bottles, or whatever you'd like to use. The extra is the intersecting box where you can put something special and small. Have fun decorating!

I have a contemparary decor in my living room and this accentuates my setup. Espresso in color, this is super easy to fix but light weight. Wouldn't put anything heavy on the shelves. But great looking for good price.

Imagine a heavy wool doormat, with rubber backing. Now attach a piece of cloth to the backside, to the thick rubber side, and voila, you've just created this pillow. Feels like a rubber doormat.

I ordered two of these shelves after viewing the online photo. The shelves arrived and we should have guessed it would be a problem to install when the directions enclosed in both boxes were clearly for an entirely different item. Additionally, the template provided had white out on it and someone had tried to correct the errors by drawing in new marks on the template-it looked like the manufacturers had attempted to correct the shoddy instructions but even the new marks on the template didn't line up. Nothing matched up-the screws were horrible and cheap and fell apart -the shelves were warped. My husband was furious with the poor quality of this item. Do not buy these shelves!

Beautiful accent piece on my bathroom shelf - looks so real. My husband even commented on how pretty they are!

Soft, dark red wool fibers. I wouldn't hesitate to order another one if I decide I need one. Good price as compared to other sources.

Absolutely beautiful, color are pretty vibrant, I thought the size was small but it is actually big so you can decorate it on a wood shelf or wherever you want it. Happy with this buy! Love it , love it, loved it :)

I am very happy with this purchase! I was pleasantly surprised to see just how fine the stitches are in the tapestry's weave; the colors of the roses are rich but muted against the tea-stained colored background (appropriately for this type of item -- it makes it look more authentically Old World) and the wool is of good quality For the price, this is an excellent buy.

I really like the simplicity and design of this pillow. It looks hand-made, but not 'crafty'. It's a 'sturdy' pillow and should last extended use. It's fairly heavy with the pillow that was included with it- I may switch out for a slightly softer filler/pillow. Looks great on my charcoal, wool sofa.

I hung the tapestry behind leather storage benches that provide seating on one side of my dining room table. So although the tapestry is not wool, it won't itch like wool might when diners lean back on it. It looks great in my space!

This clock set is a great idea, but as far as decor goes this doesn't get it. This would be best in a home office, laundry, or out of the way place. There are 2 holes to hang each one and I had trouble getting the nails just right so it would hang straight; it is so light weight I can't figure out why it takes two nails to hang it. The little shelf is inside and is well hidden. I actually couldn't find my things and then remembered that they were in the clock. Good idea!

I have had this coat rack for about 6 months now. It is a great coat rack, very sturdy, and can hold a lot - right now there are probably around 10-12 adult jackets on it (a mix of rain coats, wool jackets, trenchcoats, etc). What I have done to keep it from tipping is just making sure the weight is distributed evenly. Very satisfied with product overall.

I needed some shelves for our bathroom and these are great. Not great quality but you can't tell once they are hung up. I discarded the cheap wall anchors supplied and used some good ones so the shelves will stay up. Now that they're in place they hold all the shaving supplies including straight razor and brush and soaps. They look super on display.

I really was expecting something better than this. The shelf was just an inexpensive grade of wood painted black. The mirror came in two halves. You had to line up the shelf to cover the seam of the m irror. The mirror was plastic and a strange tint to it. Really disappointed with the entire purchase.

The quality is good easy to assemble and place on wall.

Color was way too dark. Looked like mahogany brown. Fabric was thin like felt, and a dust and dog hair magnet.
A ladder shelf is an innovative design that allows you to display decorative accessories and knickknacks in a sleek and modern fashion. Many shelves feature five tiers, with the shelves consistently getting larger toward the bottom. Use a ladder bookshelf to display accent pieces or decor in any room of the house. Look below to learn how to organize a ladder shelf.
Decorating a bare wall may seem like an easy task, but the fact is an empty canvas sometimes intimidates would-be decorators. The key to making a bare wall into the focal point of a room is the right decorative accessories. Turn your bare wall into a pleasing backdrop or an extension of a decor theme in the room. A bare wall can also feature decorative accessories that blend form and function, such as lighting, floating shelves or a mirror.
Stylish shelving can serve many purposes in your living room. A wall shelf or bookshelf is an easy way to display some of your favorite decorative accessories and hardcovers, or it can act as a decorative piece of its own. No matter what you plan to use it, here's how to choose the best shelving for your space.
Many people give their decorative accessories a place to shine by putting them on niches, cupboards, and shelves. However, they may overlook one of the ideal spots for showcasing their favorite decorative accessories: the top of a bookshelf. Whether it's a tall corner shelf or a lower modular piece, the surface on top of a bookshelf offers a flat area to arrange art, vases, framed photos, baskets, statues, and sculptures.
Personlaizing your bedroom is easy when you display decorative accessories, such as framed pictures, fancy clocks or a selection of antique books. Shelving is excellent bedroom furniture for displaying your personal decorative items. With so many different kinds of bedroom shelving, it can be a puzzle to figure out what's right for you: wall-mounted shelves, bed stands or tall multi-shelved units. Look below to learn answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about bedroom shelving.
Part of keeping a clean house is making sure all of your decorative accessories are clean. Throw pillows covered in delicate fabrics, such as wool or silk, will have to be dry-cleaned, as will throw pillows stuffed with down or feathers. Foam-filled throw pillows with cotton covers or other washable materials, however, can be washed -- some even by machine. Nevertheless, even if a pillow appears washable, always consult the washing instruction label before attempting to wash a throw pillow -- or you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you remove the pillow from the washing machine.

The very popular shabby chic decorating style goes by many names, including country cottage and rustic style.

And when you artfully arrange your bookshelves with decorative accessories, you can create a vignette that's versatile, functional, and beautiful.
