Rated 5 out of 5 by susud Perfect fit!
I had been looking for a long narrow table to place under a large painting for quite some time when I happened upon this table. It arrived quickly and it was actually prettier than pictured. I bought the white washed and didn't expect to have the wood grain as pronounced as it is, which was a really nice surprise. We're very happy with our purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by IntheLou Great console table for a tight space
I ordered this table because I needed a serving table in my great room. I had read the previous comments about the table legs being uneven or wobbly. And unfortunately the instructions were not very helpful. I think the key tools to use putting this table together is a mallet and a level.
First, construct the table with the top side face down on a carpet or rug. Slide the legs into the slots- carefully, if you seem to have some resistance, try swapping the legs and trying again. I used the mallet to lightly hit the base of the legs all the way in. They were pretty stubborn to go all the way in. The screws I received were rusty, so I put a dab of soap on the threads and they seemed to go in better. I started by screwing each screw in halfway. Just so the legs will stay in. Then, use the level on each leg base to make sure it be square with the table top. Then tighten the screws into the table top.

by Roxres Perfect table behind my sofa
All of my previous purchases from Ballard have been nothing but exceptional quality, with superb customer service and this console table is no exception. I was mystified by previous submissions having claimed such. Just try to find a console table with these dimensions for a better price and quality. It is so versatile and could be used in any room. I currently have it behind my sofa and have so many options for displaying seasonal arrangements as well as day to day accessories. Love love love it! And so easy to assemble. I had no quality issues whatsoever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mariap Disappointed in Quality
While this table is the perfect piece for behind my couch, I received it, paid a contractor to assemble it for me (I'm a senior) and, once assembled, found it was very much out of alignment. Looking at it straight on, one of the sets of legs is clearly skewed inward, not a result of the assembly but of the actual cut of the wood. I love your catalog and find many items that would look great in my new home but, this is the second item I ordered and both have been major disappointments in quality. We bought the Allen barstools and one arrived with the back support hanging off the chair, missing hardware. I will be very reluctant to order again in the future.

Table arrived in about 5 days and was super easy to put together. I did it by myself in about 20 minutes. I did wait for my daughter to help be lift it and place it behind the sofa. Absolutely beautiful! Very sturdy.

A friend who has great design sense and who knows my taste, found this table and recommended the dark wood version to me. I'm using this piece as a sofa table . . . it has great lines, rustic, yet sophisticated. I bought it specifically for the length as I wanted a table that could accommodate two large lamps behind a long sectional sofa. Looks fantastic, especially with a couple of stacks of books and an orchid. Just what I wanted!

Rated 4 out of 5 by decorcat Just the right size
The dimensions of this table were just right as a sofa table (behind the sofa). The dark color is nice, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the table had much more texture than expected. This table was shipped in a long box, and is packaged well. However, upon taking the table out of the box, one of the lips on the table snapped right off. I used wood glue to repair, and it looks OK. If you purchase this table, be very careful to not pick up the table by the lip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by J2TX Happy with my purchase
I was looking for a long but not very deep console table for a small bedroom. The table arrived well packaged and it was not difficult to assemble. The table is stable on our wood flooring. I am happy with the whitewashed elm for it juxtaposes the dark furniture and wood flooring in the room and creates added visual interest.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SanATexas great narrow table...not sturdy
I like this table b/c it is so narrow, but b/c it is so narrow, it is not super sturdy. I figured that based on picture and the fact that you have to self-assemble. The assembly was easy, but one of the legs is a little crooked. I would not place a tall lamp or a breakable lantern on this table, but that's because I have a small child. If you have no small children, then you should be fine. The finish is nice. I plan to place cubes under mine for additional seating when I entertain.

The Ananda table is very well made. It was so easy to put together ( took about 5 minutes). Looks great, very heavy so it has no problem staying in place on carpet. I can't wait to see what it looks like with the mirrors when I get them. It is very long just what I needed for my large

Rated 5 out of 5 by SJADesign Looks great in my bedroom!
This console is exactly as pictured. It arrived promptly, was easy to put together (by myself), and is just the perfect look to "glam up" my very modern bedroom. BTW there are no "gaps" or orther problems with the piece that other reviewers noted. Lucky? They listened? Anyway I got the lighter color and would highly recommend-great value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alice123 Great quality for the price
I was skeptical ordering this sight unseen, however, I couldn't be more pleased. Some reviews stated it wasn't sturdy/level, however, ours was easy to put together and VERY sturdy. This is a great piece of nice solid wood furniture-worth the money!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HoustonWifey777 Beautiful, Rustic & Unique!
I've been eyeing this table for months. When it finally went on sale, I decided to order. I have no regrets! I cringed at the shipping cost, but overall the shipping company was professional, timely and the item came well packaged and in perfect condition. I appreciated setting the delivery time, the courtesy calls and the threshold service. Unpacking was a bit tedious, but that is because the table was packaged up so well! It honestly took me less time to put the table together than to unpack it. It literally was 4 screws and an Allen Wrench - already included - and I was able to assembly it by myself with no difficulty in less than 15 minutes. All parts fit perfectly. No issues with gaps or having the parts not fit or seams not being flush. The table came together beautifully!!!
- Very good length ... it's hard to find 82" long console tables
- perfect width ... 12" ... it's not too wide for my dining room
... and the table is sturdy and stable on carpet ... I have no worries about it tipping over. The black color is more of a dark brown and matches my Espresso furniture well. I really like the rustic look. The solid reclaimed wood makes each piece unique and no two tables are alike!
Love, love, LOVE this table!
My favorite Ballard purchase yet!

Great way to display table lamp behind a large sectional. The color is less prominent (grey) than I anticipated but it is fine. It was a breeze to put together and arrived in good shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bbbbetz I love this table.
I love this table. It is narrow enough to fit into a tight space but has enough surface space for a lamp and books. It IS rustic, but that is exactly what I was looking for. Easy to assemble too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jilian Great piece.
This table is sturdy and looks like an exotic, antique piece. It was a gift for my daughter (who loves the table). It is the perfect size for the entry way. Truly hard to find an attractive table/console that is narrow enough so that it doesn't take up so much space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gradl The size and scale are perfect!
I really like this table and looked hard to find one with these dimensions. The table was packed tightly in the box and had to be dropped shipped, which cost $82
and which I was not happy about paying. The table in
black looks kind of rustic, which fit into my room, but may not fit into all settings. I would recommend it and
have received numerous compliments regarding the way

Rated 2 out of 5 by sarahinthesouth Pretty piece, but does not fit together as it should
This is a beautiful console, aesthetic-wise, but the pieces of the product do not fit well together. The legs do not fit flush against the top of the console, and this creates a "cheap" look to the console. I am disappointed that my piece did not fit properly as it should (does not look like the picture in the catalog/website), and frankly, for the price of this console ($429), I am NOT satisfied overall with the piece.

The table has style and function. It's slim line makes it a great space saver, but it's length gives it a large bold look!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MooseB dimensions correct, very poor construction
We bought this table because it had the dimensions we wanted. When it arrived and I assembled it, I was amazed that the pieces almost fit together, but left gaps, and would not sit on a level floor without shims, etc. I have a good deal of experience in assembling various furniture pieces, but could not repair all the gaps etc. in this table. It was, however, the correct dimensions, and we are using it with the worst side to the wall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tashi It's much more rustic than I thought.
I ordered the wrong table. I meant to order the black table with the shelf underneath. After it arrived it was too hard to send it back. I love Ballard and have had wonderful success with my other purchases.

I have this table in black. The delivery service was excellent and timely with great communication.
The piece itself fits beautifully into my home and is a hard to find depth of 12". The pictures of the finish are accurate and the description is correct. This is a "semi-rustic" finish with a very clean styling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KidFriendly The construction of this product
I read many reviews on this product before purchaing it and I would like to say that I feel the construction is sound. It went together quickly and well. It is also stable on plush carpet with two children always walking by. I hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dmlovelace Table is great!
I needed a sofa table that would fit in with the rustic decor of my downstairs TV viewing area. This was perfect, it was long enough to span my sofa and while rustic added to the decor. Assembly was a snap. All tools were provided probably took me 20 minutes. It is a black I had wanted a dark brown but this works fine. A great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MimiCottage Perfect size and color!
We needed a long, skinny console table for behind our oversized couch---and this is it! I love the reclaimed and rustic look to the wood. I love the distressed, black color. There are brown accents throughout--which blend beautifully with our hardwood floors. I had no problems putting it together by myself. We are very happy with our purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JSinFL Very nice piece, but the details ....
The piece arrived in fine condition. Assembly was easy with the exception of the transition piece between the legs and the underside of the table. Even after attempting to use wood glue and pressure, I could not get the seam to sit flush against the underside of the table, thus leaving a slight gap in two of the four locations. I guess I could have gotten out the chisel or drimmel to shave some off, but I was not inclined to do so. As much as we paid for the piece and to ship the thing, I was annoyed by this. Given the price, our expectation was perfection, and it was not. The overall finish and construction of the piece is fine, it is just sloppy manufacturing and not good tolerance control.

This is a great piece. I was looking for something to run the length of my sofa (as most sofa/console tables are only 50") I also needed a slimmer profile. This did the trick and looks awesome! I've spotted multiple places in my home where this would look good. I love the interesting texture and color and slight Asian flair. The is the perfect eclectic piece!
