Rated 4 out of 5 by LJ750 Good looking piece. Had to order glass for both shelves, adding to the cost of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rosier Absolutely beautiful...Great quality!
You never know what to expect when you order from a website but I absolutely love my new console. The design is even more beautiful when you see it in person. The quality was better than I expected. Strong piece. It was packed perfectly and came earlier than anticipated. Just love it and will order more from Ballards now that I know the quality. You wont be disappointed. We are using it to hold a flat screen tv and it is just the pefect piece. Only slight issue but not really an issue is the door does not close and meet the other door 100% just off very very slight...does not bother us! No one would notice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nudgie Product is REALLY well made
The console is very sturdy, really well made and looks even better than the picture. The item was delivered in a sort of crate/box hybrid that was in great shape. Delivery was very prompt, the service called to schedule and was right on time. I had mirrors cut to fit the back and glued them in for my own touch, although the console was beautiful as it is designed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OnestopshopBD The console is well-made and a beautiful piece of furniture.
I purchased a new 51" tv and found this console which would fit perfectly under it. The console came well-packaged and was perfect for my prefernce for a furniture effect as opposed to tv cabinets. The wiring showed terribly behind it. Once I placed decorative items on the shelves (especially the bottom one), it was just what I wanted.

by ChateauEmb Great style and size for the price
I selected this console to use as a media cabinet for my rather large flat screen television. I was almost going to order a mirrored cabinet from a competitor but worried about having to leave a door open for the remote controls to work. This console had to fit in a specific area and be wide enough to support the television. The home theatre components and subwoofer sit inside behind the pretty scrolled doors (perfect depth!), and it is a breeze to get to the media wires for working with components. Shipping was quick and delivery was easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kechm beautiful console
The console arrived very quickly, and well packed to minimize damage. Overall it was a great deal, but the birch and veneer top had a place on the front that wasn't chiseled like the rest of the top. It was a manufacturers error, and not due to shipping. So the quality of the product is a little questionable. However it looks great and the flaw is not too big and too noticeable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lilyrowan Sturdy and stylish
I purchased the D'Aurey Console specifically to store, in an attractive way, the assorted musical instruments, mutes, and other accessories my family has acquired. We have sectioned off part of the living room as "the music room" and the D'Aurey serves as a room divider, backing up to a love seat. It's sturdy enough and long enough to contain a 4' trombone case, and because the metal scrollwork is open, we can all see what's there and avoid the frantic where-did-I-put-it search before school. The door latch is not perfect, but it stays shut. The dark finish works well with the black instrument cases, and the scrollwork fits my French theme.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MojoRisen Loved it...but
It is a great piece for great price. But, unfortunately when it arrived it had a scratch on the top. It took it awhile, after several revised shipping dates, to arrive...so I accepted it with the scratch. To send it back was entirely too much trouble. Nonetheless, I don't regret the purchase because I do love the console.

I have been looking for a console for weeks and came across this one, I had to have it! It looks absolutely beautiful. I put a couple peices of pottery and my childrens pictures on the inside and large candles on top. It makes the space look so elegant. Definately 5 star!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Qajaq Exactly what we needed
We were shopping around for a unique media console and this item is exactly what we wanted. Well constructed and ample room to hold all our items and then some.

gorgeous piece at a nice price; I really like how it looks and it complements other pieces easily. Only criticism is that one door is placed a bit high/off and therefore closes hard but I'm not constantly opening and closing it, so it didn't bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HomeGoodsLover Perfect in my dining room!
Really happy with this table! It arrived packed very well. Prettier in person than it looked online. The doors have a little trouble shutting lined up properly, but nothing too bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Runningirl67 I would have sent it back if I didn't destroy the box.
The table top appeared to be on backwards. After I looked at the catalog again, I reversed it. It still doesn't look right, but there is nothing I can do about it. I was really shocked, I have ordered many things from Ballards before and have always loved everything. I am so disappointed with it that I would send it back had I not destroyed the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alyse928 Very nice and elegant piece
We bought this console for our entry way as the dimensions were exactly what we were looking for, and it looked beautiful in the catalog. We had searched for quite a while for an entry way table, and and didn't find anything that matched the beauty and price of this piece. It is one of a kind; beautiful and elegant. We love the wrought iron, and it matches the Grand Palais mirror that we also bought from Ballard. We feel like we have a touch of Europe in our entry way.
It is also very well made: the doors open to reveal 2 wrought iron shelves, and the top of the console seems like it is wood and veneers (black color). The edges of the shelf are beveled. The description in the catalog was very accurate. It took about 2 months to receive, but we love it. Note, it arrives very well packed from the manufacturer.... it took about a 40 minutes just to unpack the console, and clean up all the packing material, but it arrived in perfect condition.
You will get a lot of compliments on this piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Florida4now Nice display possibilities
Lengthy wait for product since it was backordered. Arrived with some damage on top but kept it anyway because the thought of packing it back up and shipping it back was a bit overwhelming. Not as pretty as pictured but the right size for my entry. The opening doors are a nice touch and allow for display without having to move entire unit away from wall.

This console is perfect. The shipping was great. After a couple of delays, it arrived much earlier than expected. The packing was so good, it took some effort to get it out but much appreciated because it arrived in perfect condition even though the box had a rip on the side.
I have it my kitchen which is part of 'sunroom' living area and it is perfect for my cookbooks and accessories. Like I said: "I love it" and so does my hubby.

I use this console as a bookshelf in my reading room. It looks great and is very well made. It also is a great match to the iron wall planter.
