Organizing can be fun! Whether you’re searching for creative storage solutions out of necessity or decorative desire, this post can help you find unique pieces that you probably won’t find at your local furniture store. We’ve compiled a list of wonderfully distinctive shelves ranging from super-modern choices for minimalist or industrial interiors to charming rustic options for cottage styles and Scandinavian-inspired homes. You’ll find neat selections for every room in the house – kitchen, living room, office, and there are even a few geeky and novelty shelves for the game room or home theater.
Fishbone Shelf: This collection is artistic, modular, and flexible. Rotate the shelves whichever way you’d like – the unique shape embraces books from any angle. These would look wonderful within a modern Scandinavian style interior.
Supershelf – Superwoman Metal Floating Shelf: Here’s a shelf in the same style, this time featuring a super tough super woman. Pair with your other comic book decor or give as a gift to show appreciation for the woman in your life who manages to do it all.
Invisible Book Shelf: Have you ever wondered how these “floating” bookshelves work? Simply slide the shelf inside of a large and sturdy book, and slip the bottom cover into the tiny hooks that sit flush against the wall to prevent the cover from hanging.
Adjustable Perforated Shelf: Combining chic Nordic influence with a slight industrial edge, this modular shelving system is an easy way to add color and expand storage at the same time. Each set includes two shelves but adding more is easy with the unique connection system.
Fire Escape Shelf: Are you looking for a touch of the city in your suburban home, or maybe want to embrace your industrial side? This fire escape shelf is a great place to start. Stack multiple shelves to create skyscrapers right in your own home.
Triangular Floating Shelves: Asymmetrical decor is a great way to break up the rigidity of a geometric decor theme. As this image illustrates, it’s easy to further accent the shelf by tucking baubles or ornaments inside the triangle.
3 Triangular Shelves: Clear oil finish brings out the grain on the outer edges of these adorable triangular shelves. The insides remain unfinished just in case you feel like adding a splash of color to your interior with a little DIY customization.
Minimalist Square Shelves: It doesn’t get much simpler than this. These square shelves capture attention with their thick and attractive frames, with plenty of room to store items on top and inside. Each set includes all three sizes and they’re available in black too.
Modern Intersecting Shelves: Do you love the bold framing of the previous shelves but want something a little more decorative? These intersecting squares offer just a little more visual interest. The smaller niches would be perfect for tiny air plants.
Kids’ Wall Shelves: Check out these adorable dip-painted teepee shelves! Available in a variety of pastel hues, these are sure to fit within any whimsical children’s room. But even adults might find these too sweet to pass up for a themed room.

3D Eagle Sculpted Wall Shelf: Incredibly detailed, this bald eagle wall shelf would make a lovely gift for a birder, conservationist, or an especially patriotic American. This might look neat in a rustic styled home or even a motorcycle shop.
Rustic Floating Shelf: Complete with a wine glass rack, this shelf is just begging to complement your rustic kitchen or formal dining room. Grow small potted herbs or store your spices on the shelf above.
Small Steampunk Shelf: Even the bathroom can benefit from creative shelves! This neat steampunk construction easily holds a roll of tissue, but the upper portion would be a nice home for spare rolls or a nice scented candle.
Stylish Floating Shelf With Edison Lamp: Can you imagine a more perfect shelf for a small entryway or bedroom? Magnets serve as a low-profile key catch, the warm Edison bulb casts soft illumination, and the shelf features a convenient groove to hold your phone in place.
