Shelf Shop: Custom Shelving Solutions

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Dept. of Storage. We have been looking for a local installer of RAKKS shelving for awhile, so we were pleased to discover the Shelf Shop via a reader tip.

Founded in 1972, by Allan and Bea Tillis, the Shelf Shop continues to be a family run business (now Bob Lawton and daughter Hilary are in charge) specializing in tension mounted shelving systems. They sell a wide assortment of wall mounted shelving and veneers. You can do it yourself or they will install. (Thanks, Lotswife!) MGR

Lotswife says: Shelf Shop on the upper east side has to be one of my favorite shops. They carry the full line of RAKKS shelves which are basically tension poles that hold up best with lots of weight on them. They’re absolutely perfect for rental living as they’re portable, easy to put together, and require NO hammering, screwing, or otherwise messing with walls.

Also, the gentleman at the Shelf Shop really made me feel good about my purchase. This is no chain operation, just a simple pop shop.
