Rated 3 out of 5 by Mimito11 Great look, not so great construction
While I do like this piece as it was the best option I found for a really long sofa table, I was discouraged when putting it together. The fixed crosspieces that the legs attach to is installed crooked on one end, so that the trim on both sides at the top of that leg does not sit flush like it should. They fit flush before the leg was installed which pushed them out of place. My husband and I could not find a fix for it, so we just put that end of the table where it is less visible. Because of that, even though we love the table, we would not encourage anyone else to purchase it unless you can get it for 1/2 off.

This was exactly what I was looking for in a table. I needed something long but narrow. Very easy to assemble. I am 75 years old and did it by myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate LOVE this table!
This console makes the perfect addition to my narrow hallway! It's attractive, functional and coordinates with just about anything, thanks to its transitional styling and warm, brown undertones. I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by wallydo Perfect for where I want to put it. It's beautiful
The table is beautiful although it was difficult to assemble because it is sooooo long. But I love it, perfect where I have it behind my 2 red leather chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by arotatori Just what I needed
We have a long, narrow front hallway that is a challenge to decorate. It seems that most tables are 14-18 inches wide and I was looking for something with a slimmer profile. This fits the bill perfectly! When I ordered it the table was back ordered. It actually arrived about 1 week before we expected it. That was a pleasant surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tyler722 Perfect for a small space
I simply l-o-v-e my console! Unlike all of the reviews I read, I was looking for a long, narrow console to use for a small TV, radio, CD player as well as to display a few vases. It would work just as well behind a sofa. I chose the white-washed finish and am happy with it. Please note it is not a "refined"/traditional white-wash oak type of finish but I'd call it a more rustic/driftwood-like finish. It has a "beach" feel to me. Since I do live in a small space, it is perfect; the soft color and style help create more "white" space. I do have hardwood floors so I have no problem with any tipping on carpet since it is so narrow. It is sturdy and was easy to put together. It exceeded my expectations and since I waited to purchase it on sale, the price was unbeatable.

I put my table behind my couch, and I love it. It was super simple to put together and beyond the beauty, it is practical.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dozer Not Black
Good quality, love the size and shape, BUT it isn't black, not rustic black or rubbed black or worn black or any kind of black. Definitely dark brown. Don't order this expecting to get a mostly black table. I'm keeping it anyway because it is a very nice console table and love the narrow width of the top and I have a spot where dark brown will work. However, I haven't put it together yet but it looks easy enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SarahSwan It looks great, but it's falling apart.
I love the way this table looks, everything about it. However, the day it came, we noticed that a sliver of wood was coming off the side. We thought it was the charm of the table. We've had the table about 4-5 weeks and numerous slivers have been coming off. My son got a huge splinter from it the other day. I'm very disappointed in the quality of this product for the amount of money we paid. Therefore, my overall review is quite poor. I'm very hesitant to order from Ballard ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by go4it Exactly what I expected, perfection!
Fits perfectly, i.e., not too big, not too small, in our front door hallway. Compliments our rustic NW look in an understated way. Great color and wood texture, sturdy, and the price was right. Received it on time. Exactly what I expected!

I shop with Ballard because I trust a site that provides user feedback. And the reviews on this table are correct, it is gorgeous. The color is not really black -- the brown definitely comes through. It is solid and heavy and the grain feels good. Can't say enough good things.

I was so excited when I found this table on the Ballard Designs website. I had been looking for a table that was long and slender for some time. I waited until I received a 20% off coupon from BD and then I quickly snatched up this table. It looks perfect behind my sofa in my living room without taking up a lot of space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ballardcustomer5555 Great product, good price, perfect dimensions
This is perfect for creating a backdrop and dimension behind my couch which used to sit flat against a picture window. Now, I have space for a tall vase filled with flowers, reading material, candlelight, and another spot for a glass or mug. The dimensions are perfect as it is the width of my couch but not too deep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Newdawn The right size, shape, and stability
While this piece is slightly more rustic than I'd prefer, I couldn't find anything better -- and I looked long and hard! I didn't want to invest in a custom table, so finally decided to try this. Glad I did: it was very easy to assemble; looks great; functions well.

We received our table on time and we love it. It's more beautiful than the pic. Assembly was easy; you need two people because the top is very long. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the parts don't fit perfectly.

I am very pleased with the look of the piece. It arrived promptly and in excellent condition--well packaged and easy to assemble. I was concerned about the lack of stability that some people wrote about--especially since the piece is on carpet. No problem; it stands squarely and is solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nmbard A handsome and useful table.
The Ananda Serving Table works perfectly in our dining room. It is wide enough for us to place serving dishes on yet narrow enough not to interfere with seating. The design is sleek and sophisticated with old-world charm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cato2011 Very "rustic" but unique piece.
The washed elm finish is very light, much like "whitewash" finish, with a slightly weird pinkish cast. Might be more attractive in the black finish. Goes together o.k., it's heavy, best to have 2 people on it, since leg pieces don't fit together precisely - thus I'm calling it "rustic." Has a lot of character and very narrow width
makes it easy to fit behind a sofa, etc., in tight spaces. I think it's a bit overpriced, but it is an interesting piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrCatKP Table more purple then white
Love the lines of this table. People also have commented, striking, well constructed. But the white wash is minimal. Mostly purple pickled appearing wood with white wash in the cracks. Works in my space, but not what I was expecting from the photos.

This table is perfect behind a sofa or in a foyer. It is longer in length then usual console table which let's it double as a buffet helper. Solid craftmanship. Looks beautiful in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewCustomer Great table, great price
My first purchase from this company and I couldn’t be more pleased. This console table works perfectly to break up a long wall in our family room without taking up too much space. I was worried it would be too dark but the combination black/brown finish makes this piece very versatile/ We also had great customer service. Thanks Ballard Design!

The Ananda serving tables was exactly what I was hoping they would be, beautiful and sturdy. The size and length are perfect for our auditorium entry hall. They add a bit of elegance to the place. The price was very reasonable, so we were able to buy two. Delivery was right on schedule.
Very happy with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmmaK11 Great console table
This is the perfect console table that we were looking for. I saw it in a Ballard catalog and since it looked good I went on-line and looked at thousands of console tables to see if there was a better one for us. There wasn't. It is narrow and long, like no other we found. It is sturdy. It arrived at our house quickly in perfect condition and was easy to assemble. We love it!
