Hello - Love this! What is the dimension of the openings? Also, are of the fronts of the vert. & horiz. sections flush or are the "shelves" slightly recessed? It is hard to determine from the pictures (obviously)! Thank you in advance! Great work!

Each opening is 2'-8"x1'-5". The grid is 3" thick and the whole case system is recess 1" from the gypbd. face.

Charlie, I asked a question about this item before and I am still obsessed with this fixture. Based on your most recent reply, does that mean the shelf system is made out of drywall/gypsum board? Or is it fashioned out of wood? Thank you.

Hi Charlie, Do you know how the shelves were made? Site made? Purchased cabinets? I like the fact that they are thick and the wood cabinet/white shelf combination. Thank you.

These are custom cabinets. The dimensions of the vert. and horiz. sections are 4" each. The whole piece is made with MDF with Poplar faces.

Good luck!

They are hard to see in this picture but they are similar to a sconce that Restoration Hardware carries.

I visited a Room and Board store in Seattle and found their furniture very over priced and poor quality

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Great Style: Danish Modern
Another angle of the room offers a different view of the couches. Dark and simple accents like the coffee table add great finishing touches.
Built-in shelves cover one wall of this family room from floor to ceiling. This vertical distance is divided into five sections, the top one of which is devoted to clerestory windows. While the owners don't appear to use these top shelves for display purposes, they could be a home for sculptures and other objects that would look good silhouetted against the light.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Modern Spaces With Global Flair
I love this neutral space with rich caramel tones. There are classic midcentury pieces, such as the Noguchi table and the Hans Wegner chair. African-inspired baskets bring pattern to the neutral palette.
Design With Science added this to How to Make a Room Easier on the Eyes
Here's another example of the right tone to set with your display shelves. Not much "eye work" is required to take it all in.

Made with MDF. 4" dividers everywhere. Each opening is 2'8x1'5". the whole system is recessed 1" from drywall face. I would add puck lighting to each shelf.
