Rated 4 out of 5 by PeeweeT Perfect fit
The item was purchased in white for out flat screen TV. Looks great, color is the perfect off white that matches our trim and is heavy and sturdy enough. Lots of storage for the size. The problem was that under the top front there was some de-laminating. Ballard offered to exchange but it would be 6 weeks to receive. I opted to try re-gluing. So far it is good. If it stays I will cancel the reorder and save the aggravation of repacking and returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomCamaro Nice finish
Exactly as described, it has a nice finish and can fit in a lot of areas in the house. No issues with anything and I will buy in the future.

I ordered two demilunes and love them.
Better quality than i expected. There was a
little bit of damage on the back corner, but
I kept it anyway.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jomo Looks good but shoddy craftsmanship
Looks good but shoddy craftsmanship (I was shocked how poorly it was crafted). There are no drawer glides and the drawer stops consist of just screws. Please note that whatever you store inside will acquire a smell of varnish and petroleum. I regret my purchase -- my first and last with Ballard Design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Libby111 Beautiful piece of furniture
I purchased the Brookfield Demilune in Distressed Light Ash and it is beautiful. The curved design gives it a little more interest. Although i wish it were higher than 32" its perfect for my shall entryway. I loved it in the catalog and I was not disappointed!!!! I would not hesitate to order from Ballard Designs again

Rated 4 out of 5 by MDhome A bit smaller than expected.
While I am happy with the cabinet, it is a bit smaller than I expected. From the photos, it looks as though it is deeper and that it could hold a bit more than it does.
It arrived in perfect condition, and the black finish has a subtle, but not over done rubbed look. Works well as extra storage in a small space between kitchen & family room without being intrusive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoyceM Fit perfectly in location; blends well
This new piece was purchased to hold plates, glassware and linens for our outdoor patio, located just beyond our living room. The piece blends well with other furniture in our living room and coordinates with the living room's white woodwork and crown molding.
I would have liked it to be about 1-2" deeper...otherwise it is perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by nanzee Disappointing Demilune
I bought this piece as the size was perfect for the foyer entrance to my master bedroom. The first delivery was damaged. Second was delivered to the wrong address and finally, the third delivery came with no damage/issues. The dark mahogany is very, very dark and makes it even more noticeable to see all the imperfections of missed areas of staining and overruns with glue. The drawers are flimsy and have no gliders to keep from falling out when fully opened. The cabinet is prone to tipping forward which is a hazard. There is a fix for this which is included in the packaging, similar to hanging a picture on the wall. Not what I expected I would have to do! Cheaply made for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wazzu Brookfield Demilune
This cabinet is the perfect size and shape for my entry. The only complaint I have is that the two drawers are poorly designed. They are very loose and even with the drawer stops (screws) installed to keep them from pulling all the way out, they are very wobbly. I am afraid to put anything in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grammynan Looks great!
We were looking for something to put on a small area wall, and wanted it curved so our grandkids didn't bump their heads on a corner. The finish is beautiful and color blends beautifully with our kitchen cabinets. Nice quality construction. We are very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UpscaleShopper Clever Design and Good Proportions
I am very pleased with the Brookfield Demilune. The quality is good and arrived completely assembled. The overall proportions are ideal for smaller spaces. I placed it in my study and it makes a perfect accent piece. The cabinet style creates a more substantial look and provides handy storage. The bottom cabinet has an adjustable shelf that can also be removed. After doing extensive research for an accent piece, this proved to be a good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skrehbiel1 Darling Demilune
The Brookfield Demilune was delivered quickly, with only one slight dent on the back top edge, which wasn't a deal-breaker. The finish (Rubbed White) looks lovely and the hardware is pretty. As other reviewers mentioned, the size is a bit small but sufficient for an entry table. We chose to apply the provided brackets so that it won't tip forward. The only thing I'd change is the way the drawers slide; they are a little unstable (i.e., don't pull out smoothly), but on the whole, we like the piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VeganSarah Beautiful Piece - Light Ash Good Color
I was hesitant to buy this because I wanted the Light Ash color, but in 1 of the 3 photos online, it looked drab - like it was sunbleached. The other two photos showed a more honey-colored finish, and that was what I wanted. The honey-colored finish arrived, and looks lovely in my entry way! The curved-shape makes it look high-end and unique. I really love it every time I walk by it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sweetie This product meets my needs for tucked in storage.
I first received the Demilune and it was damaged in shipping. Ballard promptly reshipped another one without any damages. Overall, I was fairly pleased with the cabinet. However, with the curved design of the cabinet, it is a touch front heavy causing it to easily tip forward. That concerned me, especially if one of my children were to pull out the drawers. Ballard provided a set of anchors, but I did not want to permanently attach it to my wall.
I solved this by shimming up the front legs with felt pads.
It works perfectly and suites our needs for storage in a small space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Justkat Exceeded my expectation!
My cabinet arrived fully assembled with a beautiful black finish. The size, sturdiness and overall appearance completely exceeded my expectations for the cost. So much so, that I felt compelled to write a first time review of a product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pitt Excellent function and form
Very good quality. Color is exactly as shown. Curved doors and drawers are a hard find and great price. Suprisingly good storage. Piece was a bit smaller than desired. Very ecclectic piece. Would recommend to anyone with small spaces. We use it in our breakfast nook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tiffnoelvel Mahogany demilune in foyer
I purchased the mahogany version at the Ballard Outlet and it was the only one in perfect condition. I am so glad we got this because I get tons of compliments on it, and it's a smallish, elegant little accent piece of furniture that can have many purposes (mine has a vase on top and holds photo albums and a throw blanket below). The drawers are handy to store keys, wallets, etc.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ColleeninCA I love the look of this demilune, but it arrived damaged.
When the piece arrived. I insisted on opening the carton to inspect for damages. I removed the packing and inspected the front of the piece before signing the shipping invoice. After the delivery person left, I removed the rest of the packing to discover that the rear panel had a large hole and that a portion of the top edge was damaged. I love the look, but was disappointed in the quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DIYDecorator Very nice piece of furniture
The Brookfield Demilune is a very solid, nice looking piece of furniture. I am on the whole very happy with it. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because it is a little unbalanced. It seems to be too front heavy and I was afraid it would actually fall forward (especially when I open the top drawer), so I put a a shim under each of the front legs until I can bolt it to the wall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Welllovedhome Looks good.
I bought two of these demilunes to flank my fireplace. I am very happy with how they look, but not with how they're constructed. One of the pieces arrived with a broken door (unattached hinge.) Both tables rock quite a bit due to uneven legs. Hardware is included to attach the tables to the wall, but who bolts every small table in their home to the walls?? The table shouldn't rock.

The "demilune" looked exactly as pictured, was in perfect condition, and was received 4 days after I ordered it. It is a perfect fit in my home.

That fits perfectly in a small area. The finish is exactly as it appears. I am really enjoying this cabinet in my bathroom. Its drawers and shelf is great to hold toiletries and other essentials. It was very easy to assemble. No instructions really needed although they were given.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newbride Perfect for our front entry hall
I was looking for a small storage cabinet or table for our front entry. This demilune is perfect for the area - it's small, but it gives us lots of added storage. We ordered it in black and love the old world distressed finish that it has. I love that it's bowed; the curve gives it a sophisticated charm.

I love this piece of furniture! It fits perfectly against a small wall in my living room and the storage inside is great. It is sturdier than I expected, too. It was received on time and wrapped nicely. I ordered the black finish and it is goes well with my decor. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NYCsmallspaces Good, mid-size, storage piece.
I purchased this piece for a small bedroom that required some extra storage. The piece complemented an antique piece I all ready had. The finish-colors have changed since the pieice was introduced by Ballard, and the walnut finish was no longer availalbe. I choose it in the mahogany finish, and while it is a bit darker, it still looks okay with my older piece. The legs are not even and the piece was a bit wobbly, but that issue was solved with a furniture, felt, foot pad. The box it arrived in was in tatters, the the piece inside was un-harmed. You have to put the drawer stops on yourself, but it was easy. It has a surprising amount of storage space for is small size.
