Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Attractive Quality Piece This bookshelf has an attractive design, making it a statement piece. The fact that it is an open back is great, because the color of our accent wall shows through - helps it to blend in with the decor and as great as it looks, not stand out too much. June 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Structure The bookshelf is better than expected. The craftsmanship and materials used exceed my expectations. The Mahogany finish is depicted beautifully in the catalog. It is quite the finishing touch in my Paris inspired family room. June 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This bookcase is great! Well made, sturdy, attractive, and unique. I am very pleased with this bookcase, including price, delivery and quality! July 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adds Interest and Warmth I recently purchased 2 Bourdonnais Bookcases and placed them on each side of the Grand Palais Mirror. They add depth and warmth to the room. The adjustment levelers on the base enable proper alignment with the walls. November 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Belgian Oak Bookcase I ordered the Belgian oak bookcase and couldn't be more pleased. The delivery went smoothly and the bookcase arrived safely. It is very nice quality and the price was more than fair. The pictures showing the color finish were very accurate. I love it. Lots of packaging material was left for me to get rid of; that was the only downside. December 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for displying items This is my second bookcase. I am using the two to display my collection of Victorian glass. The open sides allow the light to come in and show off the contents of the shelves. I am very pleased with the workmanship and finish. January 8, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value, attractive The sleek design and sturdy construction make this bookcase an excellent value. Whle it is made of pine, it has the appearance of a much higher end piece of furniture. I have had the piece a few weeks and I very happy with my purchase. March 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I expected! I love the bookcases...they arrived in great shape. They were just what the pictures showed. I love the airy feel with the open sides. They are great for books or collectables. June 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful and well-made bookcase We purchased this bookcase for my office (along with several other items from Ballard) and I just love it. It's a great size and is extremely well-constructed and sturdy. I especially love the X back and side details that make it more interesting than most bookcases and allow for open viewing of the items and books displayed. The black is a rubbed black with reddish undertones that show through at the edges. It looks great with the table and chairs we also purchased from Ballard. Highly recommend this piece. July 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Bookcase I researched and researched for the right bookcase for my office, so glad my choice was the Bourdonnais Bookcase! It was exactly what I was looking for and has really complimented my office space. Wish I could fit two in my office space! July 15, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning piece! Our bookcase just arrived and it exceeded our expectations! This is a gorgeous, well crafted piece of furniture. The Belgian Oak finish is elegant and the shelves are ample and wide, yet it looks light, airy and artistic. December 9, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Bookcase I have had my eye on this bookcase for over a year, and I finally purchased it in black. I love it. It looks exactly like it is pictured and the quality is great. February 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The most elegant addition to a room I loked for the right bookcase for such a long time before finding the Bourdonnais bookcase. It's such a striking piece of furniture and big enough to support larger art books as well as objects. It adds elegance to a room without taking all the attention. The bookcase arrived without a scratch, well packed, already assembled and was a breeze to move with two people. Highly recommended! March 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I bought this product I love the bookcases. They are just what I was looking for. Being open in the back and on the sides provides an openess and makes the room look bigger and provides nice design. Bookcases are well made. March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful bookcase Unique & beautiful! Packed well & delivered professionally. Easy enough to remove from box alone and move a short distance. Love the finish. March 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality It's very solid and very attractive. Exactly what I expected from the photos. No assembly required was nice too. March 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality & true to picture I was really hesitant about buying furniture online, but after reading consistently great reviews, I bit the bullet and bought a set of the Bourdonnais Bookcases in Mohagany. They came pre-assembled (which I loved), they were very well packed and they surprisingly have 4 levelers on the bottom so that you can level the bookcases on uneven hardwood floors (which I did!). They also come with brackets to secure the bookcases to the wall, so that top-heavy items won't tip the shelving, but I haven't installed that. These bookcases help complete my keeping room area and give me a beautiful place to display my favorite books and other nick-nacky, antiquey things! I <3 these bookcases!! Now I just need to complete my wall art and I'll be done! May 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well Made-Good Value Great product, well made and good value because it was on sale. Loved the fact that no assembly was required. Incredibly sturdy. It was delivered right inside the house. I just wish a "white-glove" service had been available to un-box and carry the bookcase upstairs. Really great piece of furniture. Will probably purchase more. September 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just as pictured, high quality This bookcase looks just like the picture and best of all came fully assembled! January 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully finished piece I am very happy with the quality and look of this piece. It is exactly as described and looks just as I thought it would in my living room. I am also pleased with the fact that it arrived as stated and I did not have any assembly required. This is as close to buying furniture from a brick and mortar store as possible. March 26, 2014
