Rated 5 out of 5 by Azure2 This is beautiful addition
The grande bouquet plaque arrived very well packaged. It makes a beautiful French statement in my bedroom over my bed, which is a four-poster. It looks very heavy but it isn't and it was easy to place on the wall. I ordered the weathered grey and it's gorgeous. Everyone that has seen it has been very complimentary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by winecountry Grande Bouquet Plaque is gorgeous but ...
Plaque is gorgeous but Ballard no longer carries 2 colors in the rooms photos: many pictures show zinc and cream that are no longer available. In looking at the photo showing the plaque above green buffet I knew the color was not white, grey or wood so it had to be Belgian Oak. No ~ it's the cream color they haven't carried for years! I ordered Belgian Oak and it was darker than expected. Lucky for me, I have an artist friend who touched it up and lightened it so I kept it. Love it ~ but Ballard should remove pictures now of colors no longer available to end the confusion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Housedecorating1 Awesome wall decor
Love it! It is definitely a wow piece, unique and a great addition to my dining room. A bit lighter than expected but probably makes more sense to hang anyway. True to photo.

This piece is absolutely stunning!!!! What a statement piece. I also just purchase a buffet from Ballards and hung the plaque over the buffet. Words cannot describe how beautiful it is.

I finally decided on the beige even though many people mentioned that there is too much gold. I would have liked a more antiqued brown, but the gold is not bad at all. I would love to get the brown/wood one also.

by MLCC Beautiful, classic piece
I had my mom's antique couch refinished. This plaque matched the wood color and carving so well. It looks amazing hanging over the couch. Very pleased with the look and the quality. A unique piece!

Over my bed and is the centerpiece of my bedroom. This piece could be used anywhere in your home....I wish I had one in every color....if I get tired of it in bedroom I can use it in my hall and many other rooms ...it's a keeper...

Rated 5 out of 5 by obland Nice scale and design
I was unsure about the gold in the plaque, and there is a lot of gold, but the design and style are so subtle, it really is a versatile piece. Looks beautiful over my fireplace.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shopsinla Does NOT look like an antique!
I have debated getting this plaque for about 3 years now and finally did. However, I was very disappointed in it once it arrived. It is meant to look like a distressed wood antique and I'm sorry, but it doesn't even come close! The relief sticks out way more than I was expecting (probably at least 6 inches from the wall), which makes it look fake. Also, the "distressing" is a little too even and perfect, taking it even further down the road of fake looking. I'm so disappointed as I was expecting to love it. My only comment would be that if you will only see it from far away or you are hanging it up very high, you might get away with it more. But for me, it was going right at eye height in my family room and it just looked awful. I bought it in the gray, and for reference, it is a true gray and very close to the color on the monitor. I just didn't love the style.

The beautiful detailing sets this plaque apart. It really looks like an antique architectural detail.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GingerC Pretty , but hard to hang
I do like the wall plaque. We found to hang this up high in our 14 foot wall in our stairwell is hard to hang with the two mirror hooks provided on the back. It is hard to install the hook onto the nails as we cannot see it as we stand on the ladder. We have yet to install the piece , but we will some how. I thought of drilling a screw through the front , thru the hanger , into the wall

This plaque is not for the faint of heart. I have lusted after this for a long time and when it was on sale I had to buy it. It is large and gorgeous. I bought this in the cream which has more gold than I like but it is not a big issue. It came well packaged.

I read the glowing reviews for this product so I purchased and that was a smart move. Love this so much! I ordered two, one in brown and one in cream. These are going to be statement pieces in our new home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by moonshift Gorgeous, Smart Buy !
Purchased this stunning show piece vs oil painting or mirror for over my fireplace. I live in a rebuilt country cottage and mostly have French Décor. This was perfect and did not break the bank. I have had nothing but compliments and a few orders from my friends will be coming Ballard's way. Just lovely....thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasGirl2 Exactly what I wanted.
This product looks like the description in the catolog. The color is perfect and the details are even better than I thought. The details definitely have a 3-D effect. It's light weight which makes it easy to handle and hang.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fixinupthehome Love it!
I replaced a mirror on the wall behind our sofa with this lovely piece. I love it! It is much more interesting and architectural. It gives the room a classic French feel. I chose the grey/sage color and I am very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DesignDivaKC More gold than I expected from the photo online
Just received this yesterday in cream. Nice piece, but there is WAY MORE gold than what is depicted in the photograph. I am debating on weather or not to keep it and try to tone down the gold or return it. It is also thicker than I expected, the flowers really stick out in depth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaisondeMichelle Adds depth and complexity
The Grande Bouquet Plaque is a beautiful piece that adds depth and complexity to the decor. As part of a vignette, it seems neutral, but will complement elements in its vicinity. Or it can bring a bit of texture to a flat wall surface.

Looks like real hand-carved wood, which would cost thousands. Light weight material, easy to hang.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JETSF The piece made the difference
I have been looking at this piece for a few years now and I finally bought it. It made the right difference above my buffet in my dinning room that i was looking for.
My only negative comment is the packaging. The box was very beat up and there was a slight dent on the top of the piece. Good thing my friends and family are not tall so they won't see the slight damage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mctech Picture displayed deceiving
The plaque arrived quickly and in good condition, however, there is a great deal of gaudy gold paint applied that cannot be detected from the picture on the website. Also, the flowers in the center of the piece are built out quite a bit so there is much more depth than I had expected. I painted over the entire piece to get more of a subdued appearance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PSinNJ Extreely gaudy
This product was not at all what we expected or how it was described. It is very gold and very gaudy. We are returning this product as we wanted a more classic piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deb1117 Perfect look for our house.
We had a hard time deciding between the ivory and the wood color but finally went with the wood which goes perfectly with the color of the furniture in the family room. We put the plaque above our kitchen cabinets (which are antiqued yellow) and the look is wonderful. Highly recommended.

This piece is a stunner. It has a lot more gold accents on it than pictured, but that's okay with me. I love it. And light enough that I can hang it by myself.

I felt I needed to add something to a bare wall at the entrance to my home. I think this plaque works beautifully.
