I’m looking for a corner shelf for my home office. It needs to be able to hold my printer and random other office-type items like the modem a wireless charging pad, Cricut Easy Press, an Alexa dot, etc.

It will be on my side of the home office. It will be flanked by an antique walnut secretary and an antique desk with a lighter finish than the secretary. Right now my black Cricut cart is also there, but it can be moved to the closet easily. Oh DH’s side of the office is a cherry hutch with open shelves, an antique sewing machine cabinet refinished and repurposed as a writing desk, and a 90’s-era computer desk/cabinet. We have two black leather office chairs and an antique cane-bottom ladder back chair. So there’s a lot going on.

Every corner shelf I’m finding is either really short or has crappy reviews. The bad reviews are usually related to the shelf being unstable. Although there is quite the hodgepodge of furniture in there, it is all really nice quality furniture, so I’d like a decent looking shelf. Nothing that looks cheap.

Point me in the right direction!

So far I’ve looked on Amazon, Walmart, and Target. I also did a general Google search. I’ve found a lot of plastic and wood laminate/pressed wood shelves with terrible reviews. The biggest shelves have been about 11” across the front.

I’ll look at Wayfair and Overstock.

My area has a bunch of what you are looking for on Facebook Market Place. Also Staples is a good resource.

Don't know

about their stuff, but would Ikea have something maybe?
Are you looking for one that's sort of triangle shaped so it fits back into the corner or just one that will fit the space on one wall?



Bed, Bath and Beyond? If you don't have a coupon and you find one there, I'll send you a coupon because I have a gazillion.


Don't know your price range, but this site will let you get exactly what you want, I think.

I'm looking for one that is triangle-shaped and has an open back.

A price point of $200 or less would be good, but I could do higher if it was exactly what I wanted.

Is there an Amish or Mennonite community nearby? You might be able to custom-order what you want. Since you have nice antique furniture already, it might be worth the splurge to do this.

Look into Living Spaces. Most of their furniture is solid.
Also, Scandinavian Designs.....you might be able to find a black one.

Have you considered looking at corner TV cabinets? There may be more choice. Just don’t put the doors on if they come with doors?

I looked around and it was the open back that seemed to have limited choices.

What about this?

IKEA?

Check Pinterest. They may have pictures and links to companies that produce corner shelves.

Maybe World Market?
I have multiple pieces of furniture from them and they are great quality!
