Rated 5 out of 5 by Gooddogdex Beautiful addition to my dining room.
I am extremely happy with this piece. The quality is probably only a 4, but overall it is definately a 5. It almost looks like a picture when you look at it. The color is fantastic and the design is fabulous. For the price, I love, love, love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by diamondintherough Console comes as shown.
This console is a great size if your looking for a piece of furniture that is not to deep. The lenght is long which worked for me. The one thing that would have been nice is if the doors on the console opened all the way to the side for easier access.
It was boxed well and the shipping was good.

This Console looks great in my kitchen and really gives it a boost of warmth and style. It provides me with much-needed storage for daily paperwork on one side and kitchen items on the other side. I really appreciate the way in which this console was packaged. It was packaged so that it would arrive without damage, and it did.

I love my console, it fits perfectly in my front entry area.
I was hoping the color would look like the picture and not
be too bright and it's in the warm green tones as I hoped. I hope to order more great things from Ballard
Designs in the future.

Love the piece. My only issue is that the catalog picture made it appear a couple shades lighter than in reality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanetT We love our new console
I was concerned about some previous negative reviews. However, we went ahead and ordered the console and it is beautiful.
It was so well packed and well made and is truly amazing. I was really worried about ordering furniture on line but it is better than I could ever have imagined and we just love it.
The big attraction was the color (Green) and it fits so well into our decor like it was made to be there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EastportGreg Grandezza console working great
Received our Grandezza console in rubbed black, and we love the piece. It is exactly what we wanted and expected - slim, very light-weight, and sturdily built. We only have good things to say about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gordon very nice piece, but pricey
having waited several months for my grandezza console table to finally ship to me - I can not express the excitement I had when the arrival day finally came. I was happily surprised to find that it shipped relatively assembled - my husband and I only needed to drop in the shelving which took less than 5 minutes. Overall the piece lives up to its pictures online, sturdy, well assembled, drawers and cabinet doors that function well. My only complaint is the price. For not being real wood this piece is pretty expensive! We were willing to pay the price since it fit our house perfectly, otherwise we might have kept looking. I'd recommend it to anyone who is willing to overpay for beauty

We had to wait a long time for the console as delivery date was pushed off several times but once we received we were very happy with our purchase. Perfect fit and look for our dining room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BaySailor Exactly as it appeared in Catalog.
I was looking for a console for my Cherry dining room.
There was no way I was trying for a match so I
decided on this lovely green console. It is very attractive
and good storage for books and other odds and ends that
accumulate. It was delivered several weeks ahead
of time so that was a nice surprise too.

Worth the 3-month backorder wait. Excellent quality. Only complaint is there are a couple of hardly noticable spots that didn't get stained, but I can touch them up myself.
This console will give us many, many years of enjoyment and service.

I wasn't sure what to expect as I had only ordered one other thing from Ballards, but we absolutely love the credenza! It is very well-built, has a great rustic (worn) finish and the green is perfect in our living room. Very happy and will certainly shop at Ballards again.

I was looking for the perfect piece for in my kitchen. This was it. The size, the color, the style- all good. I was leary about ordering furniture without seeing it, but decided to be brave! The delivery was timely, it was packed well, and it was in excellent condition. Oh - and the price was right! I am a satisfied customer!

I love this piece. It is the perfect fit and looks beautiful and serves its purpose very nicely. I am using it as a combination bookcase and media console and it works perfectly for the space I have. It is made well. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northstar Looks great and offers lots of storage.
This piece of furniture is exactly what I needed to serve as my "coffee bar". It is long and narrow, and therefore offers plenty of storage, without taking up too much space. I had a piece of glass cut for the top, so the surface is protected. The distressed black finish is beautiful. This is the first time I ordered from your company, and I am very impressed with the quality of this console, and also with how quickly it arrived in my home, with no assembly required. I will definitely order from you again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris4kids Pretty piece
I think this is a very pretty piece. We actually use it to put a TV on and my husband drilled holes for the cords. My only complaint is the color. It looked more "olive" in the picture and has much more blue undertones in person. The color has grown on me though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PAbear I like it, but I do not love it.
I get many compliments on the look of the console, but am disappointed to the touch and feel that I really wanted for my dining room. Maybe due to the veneer factor. However I think that I wil always be able to find a spot for its use due to the size. Arrived very well packed and relatively easy to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SatisfiedBuyer Console quality surpassed expectations.
We ordered the rubbed black console for our dining room. This is the first time we have ordered a piece of furniture online, sight unseen. I was a bit nervous about that, however, the quality is excellent. It is solid and very well made. Delivery was on time and the console was packed carefully to avoid damage. I will not hesitate to order from Ballard Designs again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RetiredTeacher We are very happy with our purchase!
We ordered the Grandezza Console and are very glad that we did. It is exactly what we wanted. The finish is beautiful and the construction is sturdy. We ordered the "rubbed black" console, and I was slightly worried that the distressed look might be overdone, but it is very subtle. Extremely pleased with our purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jessielover Beautiful piece
I ordered this piece to go with my rustic-style dining room set and it goes perfectly. I love the black finish with the slightly worn edges and it has ample storage space. It was delivered quickly, even earlier than originally promised. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it did come slightly damaged. One of the doors has a couple small chips in it so Ballard will be sending me a new door. Overall it was a great purchase.

After a small delay in shipping we received the beautiful console in green. It was really easy to attach the shelves and it fits in perfectly with the rest of our decor. I love the distressed areas that make it feel more 'lived in' than a brand new piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hape2shop Great piece for narrow spaces!
This black buffet was just what I was looking for. The quality is good for the price. Outside finish is outstanding, the inside is a little rough, but no one sees that. The depth of the buffet is perfect for our apartment. This provides much needed storage space. Since I already have a wine rack I use the middle shelves to display and store china serving pieces. Delivery charges can get really high. We needed in home delivery because we live in a high rise that added $100 to delivery. We really like the style which is different from most others we've seen, but still classic! We're very pleased with the purchase!

We ordered the green console and absolutely love the color. It looks like it has been custom made for the alcove we put it in. The design is beautiful, and it is a well made piece of furniture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyWifeHappyLife Perfect addition to our kitchen
We were looking for an attractive console with both open and closed storage. But the floorplan of our eat-in kitchen required us to keep the depth at 16" or less. When we found this console, we felt like it was made for us. And when it arrived, we were even more pleased. Assembly was pretty fast and easy (very easy for me - my husband did it). The finish is rubbed with minor areas of brown showing through. That worked perfectly for us - but I think it would also work well in a room where the desire was something that was largely or entirely black.
