These Simple, Modular Shelves Are the Ideal Upgrade from Ikea

Detroit-based Floyd Home’s new shelves were designed to be used forever.


After more than 40 canned prototypes, Detroit-based Floyd Home’s latest drop is here, and it’s essentially Legos for adults.

The supremely modular shelving system built out of birch plywood and powder-coated steel was designed for the constant mover. Units come in three- and six-shelf sizes that stack (or attach side-by-side) endlessly with one another. Each individual shelf can be removed to create more space (like to hang up shirts) or tilted downward to create a display area (for coffee table book flexes). There’s also the option to buy narrower “add-ons” to expand your setup’s carrying capacity further. Altogether, you can contort the shelves to fit whatever new space you find yourself in.

Available initially in white, black and forest green, Floyd says prices start at $425. You’ll be able to buy them by July 30 (or a day earlier if you sign up for the email waitlist on the product page).
