Spine Wall Shelf

Updated

Unlike a collection of separate items, a spine wall shelf with several layers connected by a thinner piece can help you maintain a cohesive feel while also inspiring a sense of verticality in your living room. You can find spine shelves in a variety of sizes and with different numbers of layers, so we recommend running a little inventory first. As for styles, our interior design experts have found the best models to help you match your interiors.

Neutral column spine wall shelf

Ebern Designs

As well as a natural pine finish, this 47¼” tall spine wall shelf with five layers is available in a monochrome white or black style, which are both incredibly versatile. They’ll easily match most palettes, especially in traditional interiors.

$126.99

Designer Advice:

Ideally, you want to pick the color of your spine wall shelf wisely in order to create a double contrast: against your wall but also to help your favorite items pop. For example, this model’s neutral black finish would be perfect against a white wall and to store items (whether coffee table books, plants, or souvenirs) in a light-colored finish.

Narrow wall shelf with spine

Ebern Designs

This five-tiered spine wall shelf comes in a dark walnut, pine, and white finish. While it’s 30” in height, the width of the actual spine is less than 6” and slightly smaller than the shelves: this will enhance its sense of verticality, creating an illusion of space.

Rustic spine shelf

Union Rustic

24” tall and with three small tiers, this wall shelf tower will allow you to showcase a curated selection of decorative items. It’s entirely made of solid teak in a charming natural finish.

Designer Advice:

A spine wall shelf made of wood will help you reinforce the natural inspiration behind your decor and will work with most interior styles (especially modern, rustic, and industrial, whereas lighter wood finishes would be a more obvious match in Scandinavian or bohemian settings).

Zipcode Design™

This three-tiered spine wall shelf with a diamond-shaped frame looks like a work of art more than a functional piece. Available in four finishes, it’s guaranteed to become an eye-catching accent in your living room.

Designer Advice:

Unless you lay them down horizontally, small spine wall shelves aren’t ideal to store books. If you were hoping to use them as actual bookshelves, then consider a design with a central vertical panel. That way, you can lean your books against it and will only need to use a single bookend on the other side.

Wide spine wall shelf

Wade Logan®

While most spine wall shelves involve a higher number of smaller tiers, this model allows you to store a wider range of bulkier items or book collections by relying on three shelves that are just short of 20” in length.

Diagonal spine wall shelf

Foundry Select

These extremely customizable spine wall shelves come in four sizes and finishes (dark walnut, walnut, gray, and white), all including dark metal accents and a rack for some additional storage. This makes them ideal for towels and cloths in the kitchen.

Designer Advice:

A wall shelf with diagonal spines is certainly a more creative choice that you can use to turn that part of a wall into a captivating visual statement. However, we only recommend it in fairly wide or uncluttered areas, as it’ll take up more space than traditional vertical designs.

Space saving wall shelf tower

Brayden Studio®

With its thin spine, this shelf column is ideal in smaller settings or rooms that only have a fairly narrow portion of wall space left. You can use it for taller items or houseplants since it leaves 12” in between each of its three shelves.

Wall shelf column for large walls

Latitude Run®

With two spines and four 23.6” long shelves, this 35.4” tall model can revolutionize your wall while still guaranteeing an airier result than a traditional closed piece. Complement your palette by choosing among its white, anthracite, and oak finish.

Designer Advice:

Avoid a cluttered feel by displaying your items strategically. A visually interesting idea would be to decorate your spine wall shelves asymmetrically by placing some taller items on the top left corner, some shorter ones (such as a few books arranged horizontally) on their left, the opposite on the shelf below it, and so on.
