Medici Capital is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful and functional I love these pedestals so much!! Such a small addition to the room, but what a huge effect they have on the look of the room! I am really tempted to buy more of them and actually took a photo of them and a co-worker (a guy) loved them so much he wanted the info on where to get them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item This capital is even nicer than I expected. I bought the small size, and put it on top of a credenza that I have in the living room, and put a wooden Santa on it for the holidays. Now that the holidays are over, I think I will put a few framed photos on it. A very nice accent; don't hesitate if you are thinking about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks elegant on bathroom vanity. I searched a very long time for a piece like this. Placed on my bathroom counter to raise my make-up mirror to a more comfortable height. Works perfect. Glad I waited for it to go on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even more attractive in person I ordered this capital in the largest size to use as a laptop computer platform. We need to use the laptop while standing and table top was not high enough. This piece makes for a very elegant touch and is also functional. The photograph doesn't really do it justice. Extremely attractive in person. I am very glad we bought this piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great presence! Great presence! I placed all three stacked next to our sofa. I love capitals, whether doric, ionic or corinthian. I was happy to get them, especially with 15 percent off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't hesitate Sometimes you see an accessory and think "I love that, but where would I put it?" So you don't get it but it keeps haunting you. I've learned from experience to not question my initial reaction. If I love it and can afford it, I get it and it always somehow works in my house. Case in point with these beautiful bases. I purchased the smallest and the medium size. One is under a lovely cake stand on my dining room table and the other supports an old rusted birdcage with a candle inside on my coffee table, elevating each (pun intended). These are BEAUTIFUL. Totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Details This beautifully scrolled design pedestal brings a timeless beauty to any room. I would recommend this column be placed where it's detail can be admired from every corner of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides an opportunity to display my favorite artifacts. I have a number of artifacts which I display through out the living room. Medici Capital is now located beside the fireplace with my tall bronze model clearly on view. It looks great. Plan to use the small one as a center piece on the dining room table for special occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Purchased the Medici Capital for my kitchen. I used it as a plant holder, a centerpiece for my kitchen table, and a stand for a statue. It has many uses and dresses up any room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece, accurately described I had been looking for a "pedestal" to use as a base to feature a sculture of a head that my daughter had made. It is a dramatic piece and I needed something to set it off on a table. This was an excellent solution. I bought the small size but it is very substantial and has considerable detail. I am delighted with the purchase and would highly recommend it. It can be used for multiple purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The medici capital was all that I hoped it would be. It arrived on time and was packed very good. I would definitley recommend this item. Very good quality. I ordered two and placed them under my torchieres on my bedroom dresser to raise them up. Looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, size, color and material to match other things in the room. I initially ordered one capital to make certain that it was what I wanted, I was surprized the the captial looked as good as it looked in the picture. It was the right size, the right color, and the material was similar to another small pedistal that I already owned. Therefore it was a perfect fit for my room. So perfect I ordered the smaller size so that I would have the look shown in the picture. This was my first purchase from Ballard but won't be the last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy! I am sooooo pleased w/these, they really make a statement when a beloved object is placed on top! Extremely classy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and well-made I had eyed these in the Ballard catalog for a long time and finally decided to buy two -- in the medium size. Love them! They are very versatile: I'm using one as a lamp stand, to lift a bedside lamp, and the other is in the master bath to display soaps and lotions. Great quality, and I'll probably buy more in the future. Also -- I'm going to try to "antique" one of mine next week. I'm going to do a little faux rub to add a darker, antique tone to it. I'm betting it will look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! Never realized there were so many uses for the Medici Capital. I ordered and received 2, but that might not be enough. And sizes to choose from, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Piece This was a very substantial piece and was packaged very well. I placed it on a dining room table to showcase a centerpiece and it really transforms the centerpiece and even the table. It is heavy and I, of course, wouldn't drag it as it could scratch a surface. However, the Medici is very evenly proportioned and rests on the "soft" parts of the legs, so possible scratching really isn't a concern despite the heaviness of the piece. However, I do have it sitting on a runner, just in case. It is a substantial piece of decor and the price is quite reasonable. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product! As others have said this pedestal is incredibly lovely and heavy [in a good way]. I had planned on placing a plant on it, but it's too pretty, so now I have to rethink it's use. In fact I'm thinking of creating a terrarium and using the pedestal to showcase it. I had to laugh at the packaging though. Got home to a HUGE box. The capital was insulated in a box that was then placed in a larger box surrounded with bubble wrap. No chance of damage which I appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Add elegance to any area you put this in. This is such a beautiful and elegant piece to add to your decor. The pedestal just accentuates any item you will put on it. I use mine to add lift to a small cypress tree I have on the dining room table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice quality I am very pleased with the Medici Capital. It looks nice on the dining room table. I wish they had one size smaller too.
