Large entertainment shelves that take up entire walls may seem like a good idea at first, but is often difficult to pull off without throwing off the balance of the entire entertainment space. We've rounded up some examples where we think it's been done well, contributing to the balance of the room rather than feeling like the sacrificial result of a half acre of deforestation.
1) Home and Decor in Singapore: Matching colors merge the media wall with the rest of the home.
2) Katie's Tiny Vintage Entertainment Shelf: Natural wood can provide plenty of space for showing off your collections, upping the visual interest against a large wall.
3) Beamer Wilkins' TV Lounge:
4) Stacked Shelf System from Muuto: While the small square randomized shelving may not fit anything larger than a 17-inch TV, the impact on the space is far more interesting than your run-the-mill Elfa solution.
5) Atlas AS4 Wall Mounted TV Stand and Library Shelving: On the other hand, there's something undeniably irresistible about the skinny footprint of rails on walls.
What do you think? Do wall shelves add visually interesting dimension to a room or is it merely encouraging the collection of more junk?
