Rated 4 out of 5 by Chubby Looks great
I love the look, the size, etc. I knew it had to be assembled, but I didn't expect each section to just stack on top of eachother and not be connected permanently with some screws or clasps of some sort. I do worry that someone might want to push it for some reason and it will fall apart and my things will fall and break. It is nice though for the price and serves my purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cjrSTL Can Accommodate Heavy Art Books!
I needed a narrow bookcase to house heavy art tomes that was less visually bulky in my new house (40's refined, versus assertive 30's Arts and Craft bungalow#. Some open wood/metal solutions I had sourced from a variety of retailers placed weight limits on each shelf and I was reluctant to order this from Ballard, as most reviewers spoke about design and space requirements #which I knew would be a non-issue#, and not support, or at least for heavy weights. The structure is as elegant as I pictured from the website, the matte black is reflective enough to not compete with the browns of my woodwork, floors and furniture accents, and - most importantly - is able to support many large #and heavy)art hardcovers on the 4 lowest shelves with good structural integrity. The top tier is perfect for random display items (a Matryoshka of 20c Russian leaders + an orchid!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by RedWine2 Useful in many areas of the house
Easy to assemble, this is the third one I have purchased! I use them to fill corner areas, one is used for plants on an indoor porch, one holds various throws and blankets (similar color families, many different textures) in a bedroom, and one holds old photos and antique cameras in a living room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by northpolegirl good product
was looking for something tall and metal and this suits just fine.
i think when I get through decorating - it will look good.
i would have loved more of a iron look instead of metal.
will take a bit of imagination to get "my look" that I wanted but I think it be fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoggMama a little disappointed
I LOVE Ballard, however, I was a little disappointed with this product. I got the black etagere because I thought it would match best with my furniture. From across the room, the overall shape and size are very nice looking - much more unique than just "bookshelves". Unfortunately, up close, the black metal looks cheap and very plain. I wish that Ballard had added a little more detail and/or more of an antique finish. The white one is pretty, and the green one has a unique color, but the black just looks like a spray painted metal shelf, making it overpriced in my opinion. I will keep it because I love the size and shape, and with a few decorations and pictures on it, it looks fine in my room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveallthingsBallard Beautiful Etagere!
I purchased this in black and it looks wonderful in my kitchen with my black table and other black accents. I placed large, pretty serving bowls and other dishes on the shelves. It's fun to change the look each season and Holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BenvenutiaCasa I love this!
My husband initially purchased this (at my request) for my birthday this year, and we had it in a corner of the family room where it nicely filled the space and lended a stylish touch to our display of special knick-knacks, photos, etc. I had to temporarily move it to the master bedroom when we were doing some paintwork in the family room, and loved it so much in there that we ended up purchasing a second one so that we could have one for each room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JillSoCal I'd buy it again!
Sturdy construction, easy "assembly" (individual tiers are like small tables that stack up), good value. Slight imperfections at weld points, a couple small spots of uneven paint. Way better than anything you'd get at a big chain import store, but comparable price. Perfect height. Creamy white color doesn't clash at all with my white slipcovers and linen walls.

This was the perfect item for my dining room. Large enough to hold my cookbooks and pottery items but not overpowering. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barba Looks custom made for the space!
This is the perfect piece to showcase and store items in a limited space. It is contemporary yet not sterile looking. I put cook books; some copper pans and a plant. It holds everything nicely, neatly with easy access. Competitors products are at least twice the price!

Loved the first one so much I ordered another. These two black Grand Tour towers are wonderful focal points bringing a bit of height to the corners of my rooms. Arrived well packaged - do unwrap in the garage to keep the messy styro corners out of the house. Fits together well and is easy to set up and move about.

We placed it in a corner in our finished basement and love the style it adds to the room. Easy assembly (all pieces just stack together) and looks just like the photo.

by Britchick Great decorative piece for extra storage
We're lacking in kitchen storage and this etagere helps solve that problem and looks good too! I purchased the green and it arrived packaged really well (as all Ballard items do) and was super easy to assemble (just stack the pieces on top of each other). It is metal but pretty solid. It's more of a rustic style/finish, but that works for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FloridaCasa Great Product for the Price
I was initially very hesitant to order this product based on the few poor reviews but I'm sorry I waited, although I was able to take advantage of holiday discounts by waiting.
I am quite pleased with the product. It's sturdy and stylish. It is a little more green in color than the website pictures show but it still works very well with our decor.
I love how easy it is to stack the pieces and it fills the space and provides needed storage and display space.

I finally ordered the black grand tour etagere when it was on sale, plus I recieved free shipping! It's in my kitchen but would love one for my living room as it's so versatile. Great quality, simply stack it together.. it's sturdy and looks great with anything I put on the shelves. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anna2U Pretty and practical storage
I purchased this etagere for my bathroom for storing perfume, tissues, extra towels etc. I love it. The assembly is easy. It doesn't take up a lot of floor space and because it tapers to the top with open shelves, it is easier to walk around than if it were a solid tower cabinet and isn't visually bulky. The tray shelves keep items from falling off which is nice.

I bought this in black for my dining room and am very happy with it so far. It was so easy to put together (simply stack one shelf on top of the other) and is very sturdy. I've noticed that it scratches easily, but I've been able to buff out a few small scratches with a soft cloth. Overall, very happy with this piece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppinMom Perfect piece for the great room!
We downsized last year and went from formal living room and dining room to a great room. Furnishing our new space has been fun but also challenging. The Grand Tour Etagere is the perfect piece for an area where the dining space transitions into the living space. It gives me needed shelves to display family photos, seasonal items and even some dining pieces. Everyone who has visited since I purchased it has commented on how great it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheChief Very versatile piece; very pleased
I bought this etagere and it came super fast. I bought it to hold the surround sound speakers which my husband was threatening to screw into the walls of our family room. I am able to keep them (the speakers) at a higher level for optimal surround sound and yet I can hide the ugly things (the speakers, that is) with a picture when not in use ; ) I originally bought one because I wanted to see how it was constructed before purchasing a second and was so pleased that I followed thru with my original plan.. I have baskets on each tier which hold remotes, dvd cases, magazines, etc. Larger baskets on the bottom which hold extra blankets and pillows for super cozy movie watching. It was super easy to assemble since there weren't any screws to install; each piece just stacks on top of the other. I haven't found that it is unstable, wobbly or anything like that.. Obviously if someone was to run into it full steam I would imagine it would fall over but I would expect this of most tall narrow pieces. Overall, i think the piece looks great, is easy to assemble, and is very reasonably priced and could have many uses in many different applications throughout the home.. I'm very pleased..

Rated 5 out of 5 by TessinFL Works out great!
We have a store locally so I was able to see before getting it shipped but I think anybody would think the quality for the price fits. Mine is white and I am using in a guest room as a bookshelf but it has so many uses. My home is smaller and would have loved for a bathroom too.
