Compass Side Table 3.9 5 87 87
Cool looking, but not solid This table looks great, but I would like it better if it were bigger, and made more solidly. The adjustable legs gives you flexibility, but it's not as sturdy as I would like. The legs are a little thin in relation to the thickness of the table top, and the mechanisms are somewhat flimsy. I'm keeping it because it's unique and goes well in our beach house, but I wish the quality was better. June 22, 2012
Looks different than pictured I ordered this table and waited several months for it to be delivered. I appreciate that Ballards communicated the delays to me and gave me the option to cancel the order. When it arrived, I was disappointed because it really looks different than what I expected. I ordered the light driftwood color. Based on the picture, I thought that the top would be a shiny chrome or polished nickel finish. Instead, it is a dull brushed nickel finish. I also thought that the face of the compass would be white (as it appears in the picture). Instead, it was brushed stainless steel. The compass face had some scratches and warping in it. The compass did not work at all. I unscrewed the part holding the compass in place for travel and it still did not move at all. The table was much smaller and cheaper looking than in the picture. I gave it two stars because I think that the design idea is excellent. However, the table that was delivered looks quite different from the photo so I am returning it. Bummer. May 25, 2012
Looks good, decent table Table has a nice aesthetic that certainly attracts attention. Unfortunately, the screw-in clamps on the legs do not hold firmly enough. Put much weight on the table, and at least one of the legs will likely slip and telescope inwards. Frustrating. April 30, 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
in the end happy was what I expected in design...compass didn't work 100%...but gives the look I wanted April 25, 2012
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
Attractive nautical look This product is very attractive plus it actually works. I bought it for my beach house we are building so it is not actually in use as planned but instead of putting it up with the rest of our items for the beach house we are displaying it in our home. Great product! April 23, 2012
Some great features Overall nice little lightweight side table, mainly for it's uniqueness. It has that first-impression impact. Arrived well packaged, easy to assemble. The light gray wood is nicely grained. One of the best features is its adjustable-height legs, well made, attractive hardware, pretty sturdy. Some of the nicest hardware is unfortunately hidden up underneath. The table-top itself is less impressive. Obviously, this is rather small and not intended to be a heavy-use end table. Best for a small side chair. I wouldn't plan on it surviving a spilled drink, expect it will wick inside. The outer edge has a good dust collector recess. Top spins, which allows you to orient the North-pointing needle... but, also allows for a slight wobble. There is an adjustment knob sticking up on the edge, which cannot be fully tightened down or it locks the needle in place. May not bother most people, but I'm not fond of it being able to wiggle it. Think my biggest critic is the face of the dial. It has a nice etching, but must be a pretty thin metal disc, because it has waves. Have not unscrewed the top to get at it yet, since I'm expecting I can smooth it down. Yes, I'm an overly-fussy person and I still like it overall. April 22, 2012
Love the compass side table! Looks much more expensive than it is! The compass side table is a great addition to a room with a water view or with a nautical theme! Also a great conversation piece! Blended in with antiques and vintage pieces, guests suspect that it is actually an expensive antique! April 21, 2012
it's so unique, love it. Love my compass table. It's unique, it's fun, it works & it serves a purpose. I recommend it, in fact I bought one for my daughter in Florida. Perfect for her beachy decor. April 18, 2012
Unique table I waited 4 months for this table as it was on backorder. It was worth the wait! The table is unique and everyone that comes over rants and raves about it. I'm going to order another one for a different room. April 18, 2012
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
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
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
very fun & just the right height for a snack Love this table! It always makes guests smile (it makes me smile too). Easy to put together. Wish the compass needle had something prettier than a red (nail polish?) stripe on it. Easy to level with the built in bubble. April 15, 2012
Very Disappointing This table looks charming in the pictures, but in person - its a big disappointment. Critical flaw is the metal surface of the compass. It must be a very thin metal veneer, because it is not glued down to its backing and it warped and deformed on the compass surface. It looks awful, and so cheap. Also, the fittings on the legs are not well made and functional . Don't waste your money. April 15, 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
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
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
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
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
Perfect for my husbands new library. I searched far and wide for a side table that was big enough to hold a glass and/or book, but not a big piece of wood. Our new library is solid walnut, so the walnut compass table goes perfectly. I knew getting it from Ballard would also mean the quality would be above average. My husband was delighted with my purchase and loves the fact we now know where due north really is! 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
