Am I the only one that’s tired of the floating shelves that really don’t float?

It’s either slightly tilted to the side or sinking to the floor because they just don’t sit on the hardware properly.   Have you also suffered a mini heart attack in the middle night because the  alleged thief that broke through your door was just your flimsy floating shelves crashing to the floor. Although I love the look of it, floating shelves have become a trend that not everyone could pull off and I’m one them.

So, I’m ecstatic to give you the remedy to flimsy floating shelves dilemma- Magnetics! Yes, I said magnetics. Something so simple that I wish I would have though of it my self.   However there are two companies who have the same idea but executed in two different versions.

1.     Out of France: Magnetic Spirit

Magnetic Spirit is a magnetic floating modular shelving system, which gives you the freedom to rearrange and your wall without the many holes. First you attach the magnetic panel to wall.  Second, you place the recycled steel lacquer modular boxes on the wall and  arrange in any pattern you desire.  It comes in different sizes and shape for you to design to your own specifications.     These panels and boxes come in three majors color: white, black, and warm grey.   However, if you are a color addict like my self the boxes can be covered with colorful or pattern skins.   FYI, each box can hold up to 16 kilos, which translate in American as 35 pounds.

2.     Out of Great Britian: IQ Lifestyle Collection

 IQ Lifestyle Collection is a magnetic wooden floating shelves which would give you the floating  look without the permanent hardware.  First, you attached the faux leather or color magnetic panel to the wall.  Second, you place the wooden floating shelves in any arrangement  you desire.  These shelves have 4 finished natural, dark stained wood, gloss white, and gloss black.  The metal panel has multiple color choice from ivory to lime green.  Each shelf can maintain a weight load of 10 kilos which translate in American to 22 lbs. 

One thing you don’t have to do worry about, are these shelves sliding the wall like the weak refrigerator magnetic. They are specifically made for you heavy coffee books and multiple layers of stuff. So instead of me avoiding the floating trend, I am the trend magnetic.  This is my style decor, See if its your Go and Explore…… See specs below.
