Rail Shelves


The Rail Shelves are customizable, wall hung display units. The shelves were designed around repurposed shelf brackets from a clothing retailer.

The shelves function in a similar way as they did in the store, hooking on to metal clips in the wall rails. The wall rails span the full height of the wall allowing for many different configurations. shop116 chose to make the Rail Shelves out of walnut, which we found appropriate for our home.
