Compass Side Table 3.9 5 78 78
Quality product, unique. I purchased the walnut compass table and after receiving it I was so impressed I immediately ordered another as a gift for a friend. Great quality, brass fittings, solid construction, and a real conversation piece. Compass works, adjustable height, five stars! December 10, 2011
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
So cute Love this compass table. The driftwood finish complements our grey and white living room perfectly and is a unique piece that stands out over a garden variety side table. Love that the height adjusts as well. December 10, 2011
Looks nicer in person, really works. This is a nice accent piece, I was concerned about the quality but my fears were unwarranted, looks like a quality piece and feels sturdy. The compass really works and there is a small level on the face so you are sure it is level when you change the legs to make it higher or lower. We live on an island and everyone always asks what the direction is, now they can see for themselves, very smart. Also, the table top turns independently so you can line up true north. I bought the oak and it looks naturally weathered, beautiful and fun. November 19, 2011
Metal "buckling" We waited 5 months due to backorder of this product. When it finally arrived, we assembled it. It looked promising, however, the whole compass-face metal portion underneath the glass is "buckling" We do not understand what has caused this as we do not have extreme temperature changes in our home. We are extremely disappointed. We had hoped to order another one, but this was very disappointing. The quality is also substandard for the high price, we expected better quality from Ballard Designs. Save your money. April 18, 2012
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
Eye-catching table. Although a lamp would never fit on this small table's top, you wouldn't want to hide the interesting compass feature anyway! Perfect for resting your glass or setting down a book, it's been a welcome addition to our family room. My kids are especially fond of showing it off to guests. December 10, 2011
Not what I expected The table is very poor quality. The compass did not work when it arrived, we had to remove the glass to get it to work. The screws in the legs can't be tightened enough to hold the legs up so they fall any time you place something on the table. Now the compass face is buckling under the glass. We thought it was going to be a great addition to our beach house but the quality is so bad we cant use it. It looks so cheap. April 24, 2012
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
Smaller than it looks The table is smaller than it looks. Its glass top was scratched when we got it, but after waiting 4 months for it to arrive, didn't want to wait longer to get it replaced. June 1, 2014
What a cool piece..... My husband (a sailor) really likes this Compass Side Table. While it's not a practical or functional piece, it really has that "cool" factor going on. You've got to screw the legs down hard to keep them from slipping, and ours still slip a little bit, we just have to keep adjusting them. The little built in level is a nice device. This table works nicely with our decor which is sort of an eclectic beach house, sailing, colonial-comfortable-this-old-house mix. May 23, 2014
Handsome & Useful We purchased the walnut stained version and it is exactly as pictured in the catalog. The table was easy to assemble, is quite sturdy and is the perfect accent piece for our living room. It was quite the conversation piece at a recent party! We love this piece and would definitely recommend it. May 23, 2014
Compass table Workmanship is good. Difficult to set the compass when sitting on carpet. Like the adjustable legs. Pricey but I do like the uniqueness of the table. May 23, 2014
Sturdy and well built Its no wonder it is sold out most of the time. Very nice piece, very well made. A fun and attractive piece. May 23, 2014
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
Pretty but impossible to level We could not get the legs to adjust so that all three were level. Would be perfect otherwise. May 23, 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
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
Pleasantly surprised! We ordered this product in Jan, 2012 and waited and waited as it was on backorder. Reviews had been good prior to our ordering. More recent reviews suggested the quality of the product was poor, so we were nervous! We are glad we hung in there...when the product finally arrived some 5 mos. later, we were pleasantly surprised! It was easy to put together for my husband. He said screws and bolts were not stripped. We ordered the walnut finish and the quality is good. The compass works. We have been very pleased with our choice. June 22, 2012
Clever side table makes a statement This Compass side table makes a great statement in a room. I have it at the end of a small sectional just under a polished nickel sconce and it looks fabulous. Folks old and young are captivated by the compass idea and spend time trying to figure our where their home faces in relation to ours. The legs are sturdy and allow you to raise and lower the height. The large flat face is more than adequate for setting down a glass when company comes. It is a great conversation piece and would fit anywhere in the house.Thanks again for buyers with imagination! April 26, 2012
Only for accent But it is only an accent table. Too small to be useful for more than one item, When it finally arrived, the paper that is the face of the compass was bubbly. If it is metal, it is very thin and appears to be printed, rather than etched. It is hard to level and the set screws don't hold very well.The compass is accurate according to my husband, who is retired from the Navy. June 22, 2012
One of the leg screws was stripped. This is a very unique table but I wanted it up as high as it would go to set next to a recliner. It would not stay in that position because one of the leg screws was stripped. My husband took to his shop & fixed it otherwise I would of sent back. I recommend for uniqueness & compass really does work. April 17, 2012
Great cocktail table We ordered this as an accent/cocktail table in our living room - it's fun and interesting. The aged driftwood finish is lovely. Assembly was easy. We're very pleased with our purchase. December 24, 2011
This product did not meet expectations. The compass on the top of this "table" is interesting and stable. Because of the size and instability of the legs, I would never use it for a table. My husband does like it, so we will keep it. Not my best purchase. April 18, 2012
Really cool table Great conversation piece. Easy to put together. Great gift for a guy, but I bought it for myself as a living room side table. Love it. December 10, 2011
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
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
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
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
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
