Home Office Ensemble File Console is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Shipping, good cabinet, good customer service I was not sure about having to pay extra for shipping. However, the cost was worth it. The shipping company that delivered the cabinet kept me posted of the delivery status from Ballard to their facility. The shipper called to setup a delivery appointment, and that appointment went well with the cabinet placed inside my house in a large foyer. The cabinet was very well-packed (with hardware on the bottom, as others have noted) with no damage. The cabinet worked as described. The cabinet is finished well, both inside and out. While changing out the drawer pulls, I somehow got the bottom drawer “open” with the locking mechanism for that drawer in the “closed” position. As such, the drawer would not close all-the-way. I could not remove the drawer to trouble-shoot, so I called Ballard (on a Sunday afternoon). The lady I spoke to in technical services said the drawer could be removed by lowering a plastic latch on one side of the drawer guide while raising the latch on the other side. (I had tried both up and both down). The drawer came out and I quickly saw the problem with the lock and switched it to its proper position. The drawer was reinstalled and everything is working great now (even the new pulls). I was very surprised to find someone to talk to on a Sunday, and even more so when she quickly told me how to remove the drawer. In all, a very nice file cabinet and very good customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pleased with my desk and file cabinet I actually wanted the desk that goes with the filing cabinet and I was looking for a cabinet that would store office items and additional files (the desk did not have enough file space with only one file drawer). The ensemble did not have a corresponding two drawer file drawer and two shelf cabinet that would go together so I ordered the four drawer file cabinet. I use the top for files and the bottom drawer for storage of envelopes, labels, etc, etc. Both the desk and file cabinet appear to be good quality and are aesthetically pleasing (they are in my study not my husbands). I would only ask the desk have a pull out flat shelf above the drawer to use as additional work space (my husband's desk has such a shelf). I'm really glad their was very little assembly, other desks and file drawers I looked at from other companies did require assembly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful file cabinets! They are sturdy and very roomy -- I was surprised by the amount of room in these file cabinets. They are the perfect color (antique white). Very heavy, high quality piece of furniture. I would buy these again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 Birds with 1 Stone I need multifunctional pieces to furnish my small space. This piece fills a little alcove at the doorway into the garage and serves as a "landing" area for keys, a place for a lamp to light the area, and framed photos. I use one drawer and half of the other one for files. The other half of the top drawer holds gloves and scarves to grab on the way out the door. This versatile piece arrived well packaged, fully assembled with no defects, and fairly easy for me to handle alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I purchased the cream color file console. It arrived in perfect condition. I am extremely impressed with not only the condition on arrival, but the construction of the piece. I would definitely recommend the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a beautiful example of Tuscan Design. I wanted an attractive piece of furniture that could be used as a file cabinet or for any other items you want to store. I wanted this cabinet to be nicely designed so that it would blend in with the furniture pieces that one has in the living room area. This fit the bill exactly. I love the Tuscan design. This piece also has the safety feature of one drawer that can be open at a time, ensuring that the weight will be distributed properly, and guarantees that all the family, including young children are protected from an accident. Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece This piece looks wonderful, it is very sturdy and has lots of filing room. The drawers can only open one at a time, but glide beautifully. It was the perfect solution for our home office!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from File console I love my new file consoles. I put them up against the wall, and then put a long kitchen table out from the wall in-between the two file consoles. It made a beautiful partners desk. Having fun setting up my new office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking and Sturdy I purchases two of the file consoles for my dining room. Nothing else I found seemed to be as good looking or sturdy. I don't use them as file cabinets but as storage for seldom used serving dishes and other items for which I didn't have space in the kitchen. They are great storage for any room not just the office. We love them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic File Cabinet! Love the look of this file cabinet! All we had to do was open the box and place it in the office. Great that it was already assembled!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and beautiful piece of furniture! I was surprised by how much nicer this cabinet looked in person when it arrived vs when compared to its picture online. Love the quality and detail including the versatility of size of files one is able to hang and the safety feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional These files are even more beautiful in person, and are heavy, well-built pieces of furniture. Best of all, they are very functional and the drawers extend fully, making it easy to reach the files in the back. I bought two of these lateral file consoles. I need the file space, but I have a small house - so I put one in my home office, and one in my living room. These are pretty enough that it looks like a credenza and blends in seamlessly with my other living room furniture. I haven't had any issues with the top drawer not locking, and both of my units function perfectly. There was a slight hiccup on delivery when I couldn't find the hardware. I took a quick look at the reviews here, and someone had mentioned the hardware is placed on the bottom of the unit. Mine was placed there as well. Overall I'm really pleased with my choice, and am happy these turned out to be so beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this file cabinet. It has the capability for regular or legal size files! Fantastic! The cabinet has a rich quality to the finish. Plus it is beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice piece of furniture. I got the file console and the 4 drawer desk. I'm very happy with both. They are substantial and look great. Very good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good quality I bought this item in Tuscan Brown. I previously had utilitarian metal office file cabinets. I wanted file storage of furniture quality, and this is. I do have somewhat of an issue with hanging folders, however. The "cages" I have to hold them do not fit in this unit correctly. But I'm managing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Console is beautiful. However, I have had problems with the top drawer not closing properly. Took it out and reinserted it but it still gives me little problems now and then.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clutter Solution I have been following this product for a while, and recently purchased it. It is extremely good looking, and fits well in my home office with my desk and hutch. The only issue to report is that the top drawer does not seem to lock shut. I may need to put something under the unit so it is properly balanced. One absurd thing is that the file cabinet hardware was taped to the bottom of the unit and there were no instructions on where to find it. Otherwise, it is a very functional piece and great to look at!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from File Console I purchased the desk and hutch a couple years ago and the antique white color of this console is darker. I still like the file console and will make it work.
Date published: 2011-07-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice Seems to be quite well made and sturdy. My only complaint is that it doesn't really match the desk that I ordered from this collection over a year ago. Both are supposed to be tuscan cream but the file console is lighter in color than the desk--more like a white than a cream.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful to look at but arrived damaged I recently purchased the console in brown as a gift for my husband's home office. Upon opening the package, I discovered that the base was damaged with a substantial crack. In addition, the top drawer would not close properly and the metal slide was loosely attached which cause the drawer to stick. I contacted Ballard for an exchange. Hopefully, the new console with not be damaged.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unhappy1 Within a year of purchasing this File Cabinet, the top split in multiple places (see the photo). This filing cabinet now looks terrible and I am reminded of this everyday that I walk into my office. I am soooooo disappointed in this expensive purchase and I would not recommend purchasing this filing cabinet. This is not acceptable quality furniture.
