Bourdonnais Desk is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-made desk! This desk is solid, has thoughtful details (removable compartments inside drawers, quality hinges on keyboard drawer) and is beautiful, to boot. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Well Made Desk Beautiful desk. I cannot say enough good things about it. It's sturdy and heavy and a lot more roomy and practical than I anticipated. Strongly recommend. I didn't really need a new desk but saw it on the selling floor and fell in love with it. I work remotely for my job so it was a nice change for me and was able to get it on sale. I purchased the light washed oak color as a change from the usual dark brown and it is a refreshing change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality I'm incredibly pleased with this product. I bought the desk, the lateral file cabinet and two side tables. The quality is exceptional. It adds a 'richness' to my home office that was unexpected. Katie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful desk, solidly constructed I ordered the Bourdonnais desk and file cabinet in Belgian Oak finish. While I was disappointed with the finish and some aspects of the file cabinet, the desk is beautiful. I didn't expect it to have such heft, but it's a substantial piece of furniture that looks great from every angle. Smooth, clear finish in the Belgian Oak, with no mismatched grains or off colored wood. I'm very happy with this item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A note on white glove delivery This is a beautiful Bourdonnais desk. We paid $100 for the white glove delivery. The desk comes unassembled--the legs must be bolted on and a back support bar attached. Prospective buyers should be aware that the white glove delivery does NOT involve assembly of the desk. While assembly is easy, it requires a minimum of two people to turn it over since it is very heavy. Had I known that white glove treatment did not involve assembly, I would have saved myself $100, since the four pieces individually are light enough for one person to carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bourdonnaise desk This is the second time that we've purchased this desk, this time for a second home (both desks in black). We've owned the other one for about five years and love the look, functionality and reasonable price. I have purchased several pieces from Ballard Designs and have had very positive experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not only a desk, but a beautiful piece of furniture! This desk was purchased for the office area in our home. It sits in an area that has an open plan design so it's visible upon entering the home. Because this desk is such a wonderful looking piece of furniture, I'm proud to have this be seen by anyone who visits. There is no doubt this is a sturdy, high quality desk that will stand the test of time with its classic design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic & Elegant I searched for desks for at least 6 months before deciding to purchase this one. I love the colour and style of this desk and it is very elegant in my office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, love it, LOVE it! I bought the Belgium Oak version of this desk and I absolutely LOVE it! The finish is rich and trendy and adds a sophisticated touch to my home office. It seems very well made with nice, solid, wood components. I was originally a little reluctant to order it because of the price, but now that I have it I feel that it was well worth it! There was nothing else out there that had the style that this desk offers, so since my heart was set on this style I went for it - glad I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This desk has a great look and is well made. The desk has a large work surface. Based on other reviews I ordered a glass top to protect it from scratches. It is very solid and its elegant design offsets the fact that it is so sizeable. It is perfect for my Home Office. Note: It is very heavy and you will definitely need help to move the top and assemble the desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with purchase I received this desk about a week ago. The delivery crew was exceptional. They were supposed to just deliver it through the front door, but brought it into the room for me, helped my unbox it so that I could inspect all the pieces and were very, very pleasant and helpful. I love the desk. It is very sturdy (heavy!) and was a piece of cake to put together. Maybe it took 15 minutes. My one and only complaint is that I wish the keyboard drawer was wider. There is not enough room for a standard keyboard and a mouse (although it is plenty big and deep for the keyboard. Not a big deal, but it would be nice. I am taking the advice of others and ordering a glass top to preserve the top of the desk. I was quoted a price of $115 from a local glass shop. I would definitely recommend this desk!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality concerns Although I love the look of the desk and it is sturdy enough after setting up, I was very disappointed in the quality for the cost. After putting it together and setting it upright, one of the legs broke since it was screwed into particle board. For the cost, the entire thing should have been made of wood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing drawer screws Overall, the desk is beautiful but it was missing screws in the front drawer. We are waiting for Ballard to send them. These were not owner assembly screws but instead ones that should have been installed in the factory. For the price, I expected better quality, but the desk is pretty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful desk but has some issues Like the looks of the desk but have already seen a split surface on the top of the desk on the lower left side. Runs about an inch in from the edge and is approx 18" long. It continues to grow daily. Also the legs were packaged very well and no evidence of any fork lift damage, etc. but the right desk leg had obvious nicks through the paint. The Quality Control on this item is poor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Discuraged at poor quality. I purchased this desk about two years ago. I loved the style and sturdy weight of it. However as I assembled it, I noticed a lot of poorly painted areas as well as some fine cracks in the paint. Now - two years later - the paint has chipped to reveal a crack in the keyboard drawer slideout on the bottom about 2 1/2" from the front. The crack is all the way through the wood and runs the entire width of the drawer from left to right. I fear it will completely break off soon. I expected a $1000 desk to last a lot longer than 2 years. I would NOT recommend this product to a friend.
