Elegant Lucite Shelves

June 4, 2018

Last week I did a post on the new SoHo apartment of TV personality Bethenny Frankel and in the post, I shared a couple of photos of her daughter’s bedroom. In one of the photos, there are lucite and brass shelves on the wall above her daughter’s desk (as seen above) and I REALLY like that look. I started checking them out online and there are several places to order but today I want to share just some looks I found online. I really like the look of these shelves, the way they almost disappear on the wall and I also like how they weigh so much less than glass or wood shelves. I’ve always like the look of glass shelving but it can get very heavy on the wall and on the pocketbook, I also always live in fear of glass shelves buckling or falling off the wall. I also like the look of the brass brackets that are used to mount the shelves on the wall, they give an elegant look to what otherwise would be just wall shelves. I definitely want to explore lucite and brass shelves for our home to display some collectibles and make something we have and enjoy a little more interesting. Enjoy!!! (above image via)

Isn’t this a great clean look? (via)

You can accessorize the shelves as much or as little as you want, the shelves kind of disappear and allow you to focus more on what’s on the shelves. These shelves are from Restoration Hardware Teen.  (via

There are a couple of different brackets to use with the acrylic shelves. The one above is more contemporary and allows you to slide the shelf into the bracket… (via)

…and this one is more traditional with a screw in place to mount the shelf on the bracket. I like them both but would probably go with the more contemporary one for convenience. (via)

This is a fun shelf, this would be great in a bathroom. (via)

I know there is this type of acrylic shelves that are mounted directly on the wall. They are a thinner material and not exactly what I’m wanting. (via)

I really like this look, This particular shelf is from Anthropologie. Stand by for more investigation. (via)

Words are my own.
