by TheBallardDesignDiva ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!
I just got this delivered today and it is more beautiful than expected. I have a small kitchen and the console matched my decor beautifully. It is perfect and even makes the space look bigger! It was very easy setup, just screw on the legs and put in the shelf!! I have one more beautiful piece from Ballard Designs that I am so pleased to have in my home! I love them and I highly recommend this item! Thank you, Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marsumom This console has a great look
I was looking for a less formal look for the dining room in our new home and I found it in the Dehavilland console. It has plenty of storage for china, crystal, and serving pieces with two shelves. Ballard did an excellent job of packaging this piece of furniture for shipment with no damage upon arrival. Customer service was excellent as well answering pre-purchase questions and then delivery questions. It was on back order and they kept me well-informed of the process. I would highly recommend both this piece and Ballard Designs.

This Buffet is so much exceeded my expectations! It is very roomy inside and fits all my dishes, etc. The legs are stylish and it looks perfect on my dining room wall. Shipping and packaging was great and easy to attach the legs. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CounterMom Better than expected!
For me, this product was even better than I expected. I just love how closely it matches my exsisting cabinets and measured exactly right for the space where I needed it. The delivery guys were helpful to in advising best way of unpacking and putting together--very few steps, I was able to do on my own. It's very spacious and drawers and doors open smoothly. I highly recommend this console!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sillydogmama This product has many uses
I bought the Havilland sideboard to use in my bedroom for extra storage. The 3 drawers meant for silverware is great for jewelry. The cabinets have many uses, and the shelves are handy for shoes, accesories, or purses. The finish was just as I hoped it would be and I would recommend this product withhout hesitation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Riffers The console was poorer quality than expected.
We have learned that ordering from a photo leaves a lot unknown. The hook in getting us to buy was the styling.
We were disappointed in the quality of the wood, the construction, the the stain used and the unevenness of the stain application, leaving some areas needing touch ups.
Also, the product is delivered in a large packing crate.
The buyer is left to unpack the console and that is a big job leaving a large mess to clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luland Elegant quality console
The console arrived in perfect condition. The delivery team carried it upstairs and put it in place. They declined to put on the short legs or install the shelf. However, they did hold the piece while I screwed on the legs, not a big deal. I can't say enough about the console itself. It is absolutely perfect in my upstairs hallway and provides a huge amount of storage space. It is very well crafted and finished. I had read reviews about the finish being a bit red. I see what they were referring to, but in my hallway, where it does not get direct light, it is a lovely warm brown. I am so pleased with this purchase!

by ThatMommy Beautiful Console is Perfect in my Small Dining Room
I love this console! It is a strikingly beautiful yet understated piece of furniture that blends nicely with the various other finishes in my room (I have the mahogany finish). I was a little nervous after reading other reviewers' feedback that the mahogany finish is more orange than it is pictured in the catalog. In my opinion, the finish veers slightly more red than the catalog image, but not too much (I am uploading a picture and it appears more red in the picture than it does in real life). The best thing about it is that it fits perfectly in my small dining room...it is not as deep as many consoles I looked at, but has the length I needed. As a result, I have much more storage space without sacrificing much square footage in my itsy-bitsy dining room. Nice piece!

Rated 3 out of 5 by HollyColorado Very "red"
Waited over a month for shipping and as others mentioned it is not a dark mohaganey color, but very red indeed. It's ok but not as thrilling as it looks in the catalog. Front drawer was damaged but not enough worth sending the entire item back, maybe will be able to have just the drawer replaced? If I had to order this item again, probably would not.....

I have been looking for a console of this height and length for over six months. This one is perfect. Very good quality materials, great price, and very well protected in shipping. I am completely satisfied. And it arrived two weeks ahead of schedule.

I love this piece! I had searched for a long time for a piece for my dining room to store wine bottles and glasses,etc. It is really well made and the color matches the other furniture in the room perfectly. I was impressed with the quality and how well packaged it was when delivered. Would definitely recommend!

This console is very solid, well made and has great storage. The finish I ordered it in was Mahogany. It is a lovely, warm shade with a low luster finish which goes with everything. I was very impressed with the packing materials used to ship this. It arrived in perfect, flawless condition. I would highly recommend this to anyone for numerous locations in your home.

Love it. Delivery was very hassle-free. There was small piece of wood broken off when it arrived, but it was an inner support piece so I didn't bother reporting it to Ballard. This will become an heirloom piece, I just love it. Now I have to get back on Ballard's site to pick out a mirror to hang above it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beverly I love it!
I have been loving this piece of furniture in the catalog for months and finally decided to purchase it. It is even better in person. It is beautiful and wonderfully-made. It is the perfect piece for my foyer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FSUfan Love it!
Bought this for the guest bedroom as a tv console, we're using a 32" tv, and for additional storage. My only concern, and it's a very slight concern, is that the adjustable shelf that runs the length of the console does not have support in the middle; I just hope that over time the shelf doesn't bow. But with that said, it's a fabulous piece that I would highly recommend.

The Dehavilland console is a lovely, sturdy and well made piece of furniture. I got it in black and the finish looks great. The doors and drawers all work well. The delivery was excellent. I'm very pleased with my purchase from Ballards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cinzia Worth waiting for...
I waited a long time for this item because it was back ordered, but when it arrived, I was very pleased. It's beautiful and well constructed. Storage was my main reason for buying the console. I filled it with my china and serving pieces with room to spare!

We ordered this in the cream color and it looks just like it did online. It was packaged very well, no scratches at all on the piece. We are using this as an entertainment center to hold our TV in our family room.

I really like the storage that this console provides. My only reservation was that the console has a redder hue than I would have expected and liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WindyCityGal So gorgeous and a great price
My style is eclectic. I recently moved into a large loft condo with the living, dining, kitchen in one big area. The mahogany piece looks like it matches my Ethan Allen British Classic entertainment unit. It is simply beautiful and provides lots of storage. The color in the catalog is a very good representation of the actual color.
I love working with Ballard. The customer service staff is personable, knowledgeable, very professional.
The delivery service was very good. I am single so paid a bit more to have the piece brought to my 14th floor unit and set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomandHope Great piece
After waiting several months to get this item, it arrived and we were very pleased. Good worksmanship and sturdy. The item was extremely well packaged for shipping. The only draw-back is that there was a hole poked in the back of the cabinet, that obvioulsy happened BEFORE it was prepared for shipment since there was no damage to the shipping package. Since it is on the back, no prolem.

This is a quality piece that I would recommend. I have the piece in the Mahogany color. It looks beautiful, and appears more expensive than it really is. I also have the Martin Console in Old World Brown in my entryway. These pieces are similar and work well together.

We're very happy w/ the console and Ballard Designs. The console is high quality and solid. Came very well packaged. It was backordered and Ballard even sent a discount coupon for having to wait. What I like best about Ballard is the small attention to detail: the console has little leveling things on the bottom of the legs so you can easily level the table. This is very helpful when you have an old (150+ years) house like we do. Nice touch!
