20 Eye Catching Wall Shelves

By Kate Riley July 16, 2020

I was on the hunt for a decorative wall shelf to hang in my bathroom, one that provided storage and display but also with artistic sculptural quality. I found so many great ones out there, I had to share.

Wall shelves have come a long way! No longer are we stuck with simple floating versions or shelves that sit on brackets. Step aside basic shelves and make way for all these shapes and styles from diamonds to octagons!

  1. Love these!! So many stylish options – how can you choose just one? Now I’m trying to think where I could put one… Thanks for sharing them.

  2. Loved this round-up and pinned several of these options. This is something I have, of course, seen but now I am inspired to add to my cart. Thank you for pushing me forward.

  3. What a great resource for stylish shelves. I need some more traditional ones – one for my new bathroom for over the toilet with a towel bar underneath, and a small rustic one for a 200 year old farmhouse, that also goes over a toilet there. Any suggestions on sources? I am having no luck…

  4. Funny – I had these, or my friends did, in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Cant believe they’re back again.

    Would love to see some classy shelves for my home – these all appear to be for a 20 year old’s apartment

  5. I have to say…these are some very beautiful and classy shelves. So many unique and stylish options for any wall decor. Many amazing styles. I tried to pick out a favorite and I can’t. Very Nice!!
