It looks to me like the horizontal side pieces are supported by wooden brackets (probably held up with screws in drywall anchors) AND some sort of bracket (notice the small square at the end of each horizontal piece) that ties the ends to the drywall and the center section. I assume you could either buy this bracket or make something comparable.

I see the same way, only I don t know if the metal brackets near the centre section would need to be attached to the wall. Seems they are more decorative as the wooden brackets should be more than capable of handling anything you put on it.

I think the wooden brackets are enough to hold up the shelf and its contents. My guess is that the metal brackets on the ends (drywall and center section) help brace the shelves from racking. They also support the center section from moving by making a solid connection into the wall.

If you wanted I think you could get away with just having the shelves floating—not connected to the drywall or center section—at their ends.
