Couple Uses Shelves as a Media Wall in Their New York Apartment

Posted by Rebecca Parsons on

When Nathan Ethier and his wife were looking for shelves for their New York City apartment, they turned to Modern Shelving. They were searching for a minimally designed set of shelves that would be able to accommodate their large collection of books while simultaneously serving as a media wall. Luckily, Modern Shelving had a set of shelves that perfectly matched their needs and looked great in their living room. Here, Nate shares how the couple first discovered Modern Shelving, what their ordering process was like, and what they like about their shelves.

How did you discover Modern Shelving?


What was the ordering process like?

Modern Shelving happened to stock a set of shelves that was the exact height and width we were looking for. There was even a designated opening for a wall mounted television. It was ordered, shipped across the county, and self-installed with ease. All I needed to install the unit was a level, tape measure, and drill.

How are you using your shelves?

We use the shelves primarily for books; it’s amazing how many these sleek looking shelves can hold. In the center, we’ve wall-mounted a large screen tv with a sound bar below.

What do you like about your shelves?

I love the minimal design, the materials are super durable, and the product is performing exactly as promised. It looks great—we get compliments all the time!

What have been people’s reactions to your shelves?

Super complimentary. 

Would you recommend Modern Shelving to a friend?

Definitely. Great service, superior product. The shelves are super modern and they work beautifully. It’s all in the name!
