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.

Rustic spine shelf
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.
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).
Double spine shelving
Available in four finishes and different sizes, this spine wall shelf combines wood and metal (which is perfect for both rustic and industrial settings) but stands out thanks to its double spine, which can help you make a bolder decorative statement.
Wide spine wall shelf
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.
Modern spine wall shelf
With its dark wood finish and simple lines, this 30” tall spine wall shelf with five 6” tiers is a must in interiors inspired by the trends of the 20th century, as long as you only need it for particularly small items.
Creative spine bookshelf
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.
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.
Diagonal spine wall shelf
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.
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
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
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.
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.
Writer Michael Cunningham created a tower of books, spines to the wall, using Conceal Book Shelves by Umbra
Spine wall shelf in white. Six shelves can easily declutter a small office space. Tall, but narrow, the shelving unit fits most of the space-challenged spaces. Affordable wall-mounted shelving for modern rooms.
