The newest industrial urban plumbing pipe interior décor.
Great for homes, offices, pubs, restaurants, clothing stores or anywhere that you want to install a true conversation piece with an industrial look.
Easy to Assemble
In the drop down menu options choose the shelf depth (4", 5", 6", 7", 8", 9", 10", 11", 12", or 18" depth from wall)
In the drop down menu options choose the shelf length that you want (2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 Shelves Available).
There is approximately 12-1/2" in between each shelf. The 4 shelf unit completely assembled without wood shelving weighs approximately 22 pounds.
The shelf support pipes are listed by the length of the pipe. Once the pipe and mounting flange are installed the space where the shelf will rest will measure 3/4" - 1" shorter so for example, if you purchase 8" wide shelving they will actually measure 7"-7-1/4" depending how tightly you screw the pipes together (for your shelf to rest on).
All black iron pipe and fittings are sturdy 1/2" diameter and can hold up to 200 pounds.
Wood shelf boards not included with this listing. Many customers prefer to supply their own shelf boards from a local Home Depot or lumber yard and save on the shipping costs associated with the lumber delivery.

The Width of the shelving unit is customizable to your specifications (depends on the length of your shelving). Not recommended over 60" apart without an additional support bracket.
Measurements from ceiling to the bottom of shelving unit (approximately 19" to first shelf) and this can modified to fit your needs (modifications may require an additional fee up to 48”).
If you only want the shelving unit to attach to the wall (instead of the ceiling mount) we can customize this item to screw only into the wall. Send me a message with your custom request.
2 Shelves - 33"
3 Shelves - 45-1/2"

Water should not be used to clean the iron pipe. It will discolor the pipe and fittings.NOTE: Pipe threads will show a little bit and therefore will not screw in all of the way. That’s how they’re made (slightly tapered pipe threading).**Expediated shipping expenses are the responsibility of the customer.

Unfortunately we do not deliver to P.O. Box addresses.
Please note: For the longer table legs and for large orders I often ship them in separate boxes due to the length and weight of the pipes and fittings. I will keep you updated if the boxes are not scheduled to arrive on the same day.
At this time we do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska due to high cost of shipping for the heavy iron pipes.

"Black pipe" is the construction industry name used for this type of piping. It is dark in color (not black but a more dark gray color) unpainted steel like what is used in construction projects. Since the pipes and fittings are raw steel and iron the color may not be uniform and can contain slight imperfections that add character to the design of the product.
This is typically what is often used and desirable for authentic industrial decor and interior design. The "black pipe" is paintable.
**Please Note: The unpainted black pipe can have some imperfections and the pipe coloring can differ slightly from the pipe and fittings.
I recommend that you do not clean the iron pipes with water. The pipes and fittings will rust.
All "DIY" parts kits will need to be cleaned prior to assembling. I recommend using a degreasing formula (ZEP 505 in the spray bottle from Home Depot) works very well.
I will email detailed instructions for the "DIY" supplies/kits by request. I prefer not to use paper instructions if at all possible. Thank you, Tom
Frequently Asked Questions
The straight shelf brackets are listed by the length of the pipe. Once the pipe, mounting flange and end cap are installed the space where the shelf will rest will measure 3/4" - 1" shorter so for example, if you purchase 8" shelf brackets they will actually measure 7"-7-1/4" depending how tightly you screw the pipes together (for your shelf to rest on).
Is the black pipe painted?
"Black pipe" is the construction industry name used for this type of piping. It is dark in color (not black but a more dark gray color) unpainted steel like what is used in construction projects. This is typically what is often used in authentic industrial decor and interior design. The "black pipe" is paintable.
The black pipe "DIY" items are delivered as a parts kit and need to be cleaned (please read the listing product description). They have a thin coating to protect the pipe from scratching during shipping/delivery. I like to use A degreaser from Home Depot like ZEP 505 or a similar product in the spray bottle. Simply spray on the pipe and wipe off. Repeat this a few times to be sure all of the remaining coating is clean.
Custom and personalized orders
Many of our products are customizable including the shelving units and table base frames. If you have an idea for one of these items message me with your idea and include as many details as possible (with a sketch or photo example if you have one). Typically I can give you a quote for a table frame if I have the desired pipe diameter (1/2", 3/4", or 1"), length, width/depth, and height.
For shelving units I will need height (from ceiling to the bottom of the unit), shelf depth, space in between each shelf (in inches), number of shelves you want and the diameter size of pipe (1/2", 3/4", or 1" available).
Do you accept returns?
Please review my return policy in my Etsy store. I do accept returns within 14 days of delivery. Any items returned after 14 days will not be accepted for a refund. Please open your order and check all items on arrival to make sure they are acceptable to you. Let me know if there are any defects, damage or missing parts so I can address these immediately.

I am loving our bookshelf, we really needed a custom piece like this to fully utilize the space with all our books and board games. I picked the 6 shelf which gave us a full floor to ceiling solution. We choose to build the bookcase standing on the floor, giving us space under that first shelf for a small electric fireplace and a dog bed, and then removed one of the connectors for the top shelf due to my lower ceilings. For me the price was right in not having to do the math to buy the pipes separately and still source my own wood. I'm very happy with our bookshelf

A bit difficult to put together bc my walls aren’t even but it looks beautiful. Everyone is in love with it when they walk in

LOVE the look!! The pipe arrived well packaged. (FYI the pipes are heavy so make sure you have help depending on how many you buy.) The guidance on installation that was on the page was very helpful and we were able to put them up in one day. We bought lumber at our local home improvement store and stained with Danish Oil. We did all the assembly on the floor - leveled and plumbed - then put up in one piece like a barn raising. It worked well.

Enjoying the final product, I would recommend this to others. The flexibility was great and I did a little mix and match to make shorter and taller shelves rather than having them all the same height. The instructions were clear on how to clean the pipe and instructions for assembly came via etsy (I actually didn't use them because I failed to see them before I put the thing together!). I deducted 1 star because it was extremely hard to clean thoroughly, especially on the threads. Putting it together and hanging it was quick, but would have been even faster If I had a 2nd set of hands for help!
