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 4 out of 5 by gramlgw68 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 5 out of 5 by JOJO40 Arrived on time and is perfect in my study.
Could not be happier with the quality of this file cabinet. Plenty of room for all of my current files that I need near by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvDesigns 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 4 out of 5 by RuthMary 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 5 out of 5 by R2decorate 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!

Very well designed, attractive, office file console. Plenty of room for smaller hanging files as well as legal size hanging files.
GOOD safety feature. To prevent toppling over, drawers are designed to deny opening of a second drawer while
the other drawer is already opened. I appreciate that
thoughtful attention to detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTinJax Solid and substantial file cabinet
I finally decided to purchase this file cabinet to replace the old metal one in my office. What a difference it has made - it is very nice looking and well constructed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by decor8itlady 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 5 out of 5 by DesignMavenCA 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 GAValentine 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

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 MomontheGo 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!

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 5 out of 5 by Niece 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.

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 5 out of 5 by myownstudyfinally 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

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.
