Rated 2 out of 5 by jannygirl Nice design but came damaged (twice)
I purchased this and another metal clothing rack and they both had several areas where the black paint had been worn off and then poorly touched up.
When you buy an item you are expecting it to come in new condition, so I think the fact that a "touch-up" attempt had been made was the worst part because it made me feel they knew of its condition and tried to cover it up and ship it out anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by garden2luv easy to assemble, looks great, perfect size
I purchased this étagère for myself and as a gift for one of my children. The size was perfect for in my dining room and looks great holding crystal and barware. My son is using his in the bathroom for extra toiletries and towels. very versatile piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RemodelGirl Great product...
I purchased the black version for a bathroom corner. The metal is very décor friendly. It's useful for many décor styles. It's actually quite roomy. Especially the lowest shelf. It's easy to just stack up the tiers and it's good to go.

I was a little hesitant on this item with some of the reviews but I trusted my judgement and I'm HAPPY I did! Absolutely love the piece! Bought it in the green and love the color too...it's perfect! It is a large piece but works perfectly in my kitchen. Love that there are no screws of any sort...just stacks on top of each other!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Styleandcomfort Great accessory piece!
I bought this to replace my existing nightstand which was a heavy oak with drawers. There's plenty of room between shelves for baskets and accessories, and they are a good height for using items next to the bed. It went together so easily and is nice and sturdy. Only disappointment, the cream turned out to be more of a white but in the long run I'm very happy and it's a good looking piece in my bedroom or any room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Galsgurl Just what I wanted
I ordered the black Etagere on 09/08/13 and it arrived today (09/12/13). I'm pleased my shipment arrived on time. It looks great in my living room corner - I've already received compliments. (It can be placed in just about any room.)
My only con is the shelves are loosely connected; however, it seems to be sturdy so hopefully no issues.
Overall, I'm pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Growing Practical, easy assembly and pretty
Graceful curves give this etagere a more elegant touch even though it is metal. So glad I purchased these to flank my front door. Easy assembly.

I bought the Etagere several years ago and still considered it one of my favorite purchases from Ballard Designs.
It is located in my home gym and fits perfectly in my décor. It holds my radio and baskets containing my weights.
Easy to assemble

Rated 4 out of 5 by katiej Easy set up
I read other reviews which gave me confidence to order it. It arrived on time, easy to put totgether-thank goodness, looks very much like what it did in the catalogue, and gives me the look that I wanted at the price I wanted to spend. It is not heavy so if it is bumped the items on the shelf will rattle. I am glad I purchased it-it is versatile so I will be able to use somewhere else if I change things up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marnia Beautiful étagère
I'm very pleased with the Grand Tour Étagère. I have a small space in my family room where I needed something to hold items like the telephone. The small footprint works very well and gives me quite a bit of storage area. I use a basket to hold loose items on the bottom shelve. The black finish is nice and the simple lines look elegant with almost any decor. I could see this being used in any room in the house or even as a plant stand on an enclosed porch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by designer68 Looks good, not especially well made
Hi, This is a sturdily made étagère and looks exactly like the photo. I was hoping for more white than cream and it fits the bill there and works with my white foyer. It was quite a nuisance to unpack but totally easy to put together, as the pieces just fit together and there is no hardware. But it is sturdy enough that it seems like that will work out ok not being screwed together.
The worst part is the paint job-it is so cheaply finished, it looks like it's barely covered by a coat of paint with rough edges everywhere. It seems like if anything comes in contact with it, the small amount of paint that's on it is going to come right off. But it would take so long to re-pack it that I can't be bothered returning it.

I ordered this in cream. My only disappointment is that the paint scratches very easily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Grandmadecorates This product had the look I wanted but was very disappointing
This shelf unit was very tinny and cheaply made. It was wobbly and the parts did not fit well together. We would have returned it, but the way it was packaged made it next to impossible to put back in the box and would have been costly to return. We really worked at making it usable and stable in our space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweetieto4 This product is sturdy and attractive
This etagere is strong and easy to put together. I liked the simplicity and it looks great in the spot I put it in. We bought a condo that doesn't have upper cabinets in the kitchen so it provides space for dishes for me. It arrived with the top piece sticking through the box yet it was undamaged so that tells you how strong it is. I've never been disappointed with a Ballard Designs product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Southern2 Perfect Addition to a Bathroom
I needed something deocrative and open but functional for a guest bathroom we had just remodeled. This etagere is perfect. Large enough for towel storage and yet classic looking and a great decorative piece. So easily put together and sturdy. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sharonann Love it, light and elegant.
It is a unique piece, simple yet elegant. It gracefully displays my large or unusual platters and serving pieces in a very simplistic way. I highly recommend it for any room in your home. It is versatile and compliments my decor in ivory. A friend of mine loves it so much, she will be purchasing one as well for her dining room for the same purpose.

We bought this in black to solve a design problem in our Dining room. It arrived safely, well packaged and set up was as simple as 1-2-3. It looks great, is sturdy and functional and is value for the money.

The etagere is practical and incredibly easy to put together. It's rather lightweight but is suitable for plants and other display items (books, glassware, etc.).
I highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HobokenGreen Very nice etagere for the home.
It's easy to assemble and elegant addition to any room if you're looking to go vertical with your indoor plants and free up floor space. You will need to measure the height of your plants to make sure you have enough clearance given the height between each stage.

I purchased this Etagere in black several months ago for my dining room and I love it! For Christmas, my children purchased this in the green color for my bathroom and it's beautiful and functional. They are made very well and so simple to assemble. I would definitely recommend this item to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeattleStyle So versatile-could work in almost any room!
I had been eyeing this shelving unit for about a year and finally broke down and purchased it - I couldn't be happier. It completes a corner in my dinning room, but really could be used anywhere from the bathroom, to the bedroom to the kitchen. Assembly is a breeze and I also like how the trays just stack so you can break it down into two (or more) units. The black finish is nice and the top detailing is beautiful. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shrekmom Love the look of this piece.
I am extremely happy with this etagere. I was looking at another one of a "twig" design, and am so happy I purchased this one as it is a substantial piece of furniture. I have it in a corner of my kitchen with nick nacks, candles, etc. but as it turns out, it is the best location for my phone stereo player/docking station. I love it!

Fun and versatile design...could be used in any room. I'm using mine for books and memoribilia in my husband's office. It's stable for heavy books. I would like to have seen color choices closer up.
