Compass Side Table 4 5 106 106
Very attractive in my office I would recommend this table to someone with eclectic tastes, who is tired of seeing the same sort of reading chair side table in every designer's concept study. May 22, 2014
unsatisfactory We were quite disappointed with the table. Although it looks cool, it doesn't work as a compass and as a table, the top is too wobbly. It's going back. March 28, 2014
poor quality control The side table was a gift and was back ordered 3 times and finally arrived 15 weeks after we ordered it. It's a pretty piece but the glass top sits on the compass and prevents it from moving. I glued a few spacers on the top of the wood ring that supports the glass and it works fine so far. March 27, 2014
This table is stunning. I have had a terrific experience with this table. It is eye catching and a conversation starter. Almost everyone who enters the room is fascinated by it. It looks terrific next to a leather chair and is the perfect accessory for my lake house nautical theme. Highly recommended. February 12, 2014
Poorly constructed The concept is very good, but the legs are poorly attached with inferior quality fittings and cheap brass imitations for hardware. The extendable legs were not able to be tightened and the machining of the fittings were sloppy. January 21, 2014
Interesting piece This small table is definitely an interesting piece. We have a travel themed family room so it fits right in. I do not think it is designed to be a 'useful' table. It's definitely on the small side & is not the most sturdy/stable item. I do not feel comfortable setting anything on the glass. We have a difficult time keeping it level. The compass does function but the slightest movement knocks it off level. It is constructed well but more of a design item than a practical piece of furniture. January 18, 2014
Great table for chairside Bought this as a side table for my husband and we both loved it! The brass trim was detailed and made the table look substantial and very expensive. I would have given it five stars but the way the compass arrow was marked, it looked sloppy and not up to the detail on the rest of the table. Overall, it is a great little chairside table and I know it will be used in our home for many years. December 7, 2013
Fits perfectly where we wanted it. Very good quality of hardware, fit and finish. Color was as expected from seeing it on line. A great addition to our NC mountain home! September 21, 2013
Like no other table. I bought this table for my beach house. I'm trying to decorate it circa "Ernest Hemingway" and this was the perfect addition. Good quality and good price. It was delivered well before estimated arrival date. September 21, 2013
Cute Idea - Not a Functional Table My husband and I were looking at this table for a year. I finally purchased it as a birhtday gift for him and I am sorry that I did. We are both very disappointed with the product. The compass itself, looks nice and seems to work, but the table is unstable. The legs are too weak and flexible. No matter how much I tighten the ajustable screws, it always gets out of level and it always looks lopsided or tilted which really makes it look cheap. I am so disappointed in it that last time we had company I considered hiding it in the closet while our guests were in our home. September 10, 2013
Very cool side table Very nice quality table. Outstanding value. Despite some of the other negative reviews, it arrived in excellent condition and was easy to set up. The compass works just fine. Delivery was within the estimated date range as well. September 4, 2013
Great little side table The table looks and works as advertised. It is really easy to put together and works great in a small area. I needed something small to put beside a small leather chair in the corner of my living room and this works great. I can finally use the chair as intended and have a place for my glass of wine. The legs of the table seemed a little flimsy when I was putting it together, but after several weeks of use, I've had no more need for concern. September 4, 2013
Girls like it too The table looks just like it did in the picture. I am not sure if they changed the picture or if the darker color is just truer. It was easy to assemble even without the directions but if you follow the directions it does work as advertised. I love it since my house is at an angle and I have a terrible sense of direction. :) August 29, 2013
Unique and attractive Well made, arrived on time, the compass works beautifully. August 22, 2013
Fun accent piece This cute little drink table looks adorable in our library. The compass isn't functional but who cares. It's a perfect little side table. June 28, 2013
Cool looking table I purchased this table for my oldest son as a birthday gift (and so he could set his TV remote on something cooler than a tray table!) Unfortunately, the set screws included for assembly weren't all the same size. We had to hunt around to find the right size to attach the compass table top to the tripod base. Once that was done, it was smooth sailing. The compass does indeed work, and it really IS a great looking table; I was just surprised at the issue with the incorrect set screw. June 13, 2013
I love this table This table is a great addition to our media room where we have an airplane chair. Unusual side table for a chair. May 11, 2013
Looks nice but doesn't keep itself level and scratch floors The table looks very nice but it is very unstable and we were unable to keep it level. I would not put a glass of wine on it for sure. Also it doesn't seem to align with the true North either. Very disappointing. May 7, 2013
Conversation piece I love this table. The quality is great (which was an added bonus because it was so affordable). It is a perfect, small scale side table and an unexpected conversation piece. April 29, 2013
Love it Looks just like picture and easy to put together. Everyone who has seen loves it. April 26, 2013
Unique and just the right size. I purchased this as a small side table for my husband's library area. It fits the space neatly and adds a unique touch. Just like any good outfit- start with classic, modestly priced pieces and then add accessories that make it elegant and the entire ensemble gets noticed. April 6, 2013
Great conversation piece. Not sure yet if it is too small to use as a table between two casual chairs, but a sure conversation starter. Like it! April 3, 2013
Whimsical touch We use this piece as a sort of wine table between chairs and it surely is a conversation piece. Just be careful to tighten the needle down if you are moving it to a different spot. March 15, 2013
Great piece. Item is lovely and unique. Ballard needs to address quality control since we had to have a second table shipped for a problem with the face of compass that should have been caught before it shipped. On the upside, phone reps were accommodating, knowledgeable and personable. Issue was handled swiftly and the new item arrived within two days. March 4, 2013
Awesome conversation piece I was looking at this for the longest time and finally decided to get it. So glad I did. I got the Maple colored one which is very rich looking. When I pulled it out of the box the compass didn't work, but it was an easy fix. What happens is that the compass needle pivots on a very small pin. There is a knob on the side of the table that you tighten to prevent the compass needle from spinning and getting damaged (during situations such as shipping or moving). Unfortunately, it doesn't work if they jostle the table around too much in shipping. So the compass needle moves a bit off center from the pin and won't spin. All you have to do is get a small flat head screwdriver and take the top piece off. Pick up the compass needle and put it right back on the pin and it will start spinning freely. Takes less than 5 minutes and all you need is a screwdriver. March 1, 2013
Beautiful Table - Go off smaller pic I want to clarify that the compass on this table does indeed work. Some previous reviews noted that it did not. Also, the most accurate image of this table is the one that's available when you click on the "Aged Driftwood" option. You see the silvery top. February 21, 2013
My husband loved it! I bought this as a gift for my husband because he likes compasses, and we needed a side table in a sitting area. He loved it and has mentioned how he's enjoying it multiple times. The 4 star (rather than 5) is because it's not quite as sturdy as I expected and leveling the table by adjusting the legs is a little tedious. But it is serving the purpose I bought it for, and he does love it, so it was worth it! I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys maps, compasses, nautical style. February 10, 2013
Compass side table The table was a Christmas gift for my husband and not only was he surprised, he loved it! It is exactly how it was pictured online and fits our contemporary "beachy" decor...without being cheesy. We absolutely love it and have always been more then satisfied with things we have purchased from Ballard. Thank you. January 20, 2013
Great on looks, poor on quality The compass table is beautiful, but not very well made. When we unpacked it, the pivoting needle was broken. We had the same problem with the hands on a Ballard wall clock. We returned the clock, only to have the new one break almost immediately. Luckily, my husband is handy and repaired the clock. He didn’t even bother to return the table, instead choosing to immediately replace and repair the broken parts. As I said, the table looks great; yet for the price, the product should be pristine on delivery, not in need of repair. In short, I am disappointed in the quality, but love the look. January 10, 2013
Looks great and really works This was a gift for my son, a physicist, who loves scientific artifacts. It looks great and will look even better in his library at home. It was easy to assemble, well packed for shipping as all Ballard items are, and really works. He was thrilled and we couldn't have been happier. December 30, 2012
