Rated 5 out of 5 by coni VERY STURDY/WELL MADE
I bought this for my daughter's small apartment so she had a place to hang her clothes/coats/etc. She didn't have a closet so she needed a sturdy rack. This one is not only sturdy but beautiful. She has both racks full & loads sweaters/pants on the top shelf & shoes on the bottom rack. It doesn't jiggle/move/feel unstable. This rack is well worth the money & you won't be disappointed. The color is great & works with all decor. I highly recommend it.

Had a large Christmas gathering and placed this on the patio. Far more effective than throwing coats in a spare bedroom! Very happy with purchase. Thank you Ballard. You never disappoint. LHK

I love our Niles Double coat rack, it is stylish, functional and just beautiful. I wish we could use it in our main room it is just so beautiful, but for now, we are using it in our teenagers room. It was easy to assemble, in fact I had him help me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoenut3 This coat rack is a very good looking way to make up for too little closet space.
I have two of these coat racks now. They provide easy access to all of my clothes, which were previously crammed into a tiny closet or stored in boxes.

Attractive, sturdy, easy to assemble, large capacity, was happily surprised at the size of it-actually a double rod rack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EviePatt Looks nice
The clothing rack looks fabulous but it leans a little and I dont know how to adjust it to fix that. It could be a little wider so that the hangers on each side dont get in the way but I use big wooden hangers so they are just wider than most.

This coat rack fits perfectly in my closet and I'm so happy with it. I had been looking at racks for a long time and was so happy wen I found this one. I like that it has two "shelves" for things like shoes and blankets. I also like that it has two rails for hangers. It is sturdy and well-made. I assembled it with my housekeeper in about 15 minutes. Super easy and handsome and an overall fabulous product. Thank you, Ballard!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CityGirlatHome Perfect for apartment living!
I love this coat rack! I live in a 700 sq. foot apartment in a building built in the 1920s so it has one teeny closet that is not even in the bedroom. So I turned a small bonus room into a walk-in closet. This coat rack comfortably fits the entirety of my hanging wardrobe on both sides with additional storage on the bottom (I use for shoes) and room on the top which houses my hat and purse collections. It's sturdy, stylish, and sensibly priced! It has helped tremendously with making a tiny apartment more functional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveverythingabtBallard This product is very sturdy and solid!
I use this for all of my son's clothes since he doesn't have a closet. It holds clothes on both sides and I'm not worried about it tipping or falling over. It has a nice shelf on top and bottom.
Worth every penny and more.

I have such mixed feelings about this product.
Pros: Nothing else really like it on the market. Reasonable price. Nice design concept. It's attractive. It's sturdy. It's easy to assemble.
1. You can *NOT* really hang clothing on both sides without the clothes colliding with each other in the center. Look at the display photos for proof. If you could do it, they would show it ... Now, I am not a big person and I could not hang shirts on both sides without complete collision. So you literally have to space them alternately on both sides. To me, this is a design fail. And it would have taken probably 1-2 more inches of width in the center to make this possible.
2. You cannot really hang a long dress on this. The length from the center of the cloths bar to the top of the bottom rack is 51" and simply not long enough. With a normal hanger on the rod, you can hang a 48" item. Now, you could hang an item from the top shelf in the center of the unit, which gives you a little more space, but that's not really what it was designed for.
3. The package came nicely wrapped and protected, but the paint job on my unit was just terrible. Not consistent, and when I was done assembling this product, my hands were literally covered in black rub-off. So then I spent an hour wiping this product down and re-wiping it down til the black rub-off stopped, so I felt I could safely hang clothing on it without black flakes or rub-off. It was honestly terrible. I am attaching a photo here to show all the wiping that had to occur for this product to be safe to put clothes on it.
All that said, for $200, this is an okay product considering the design flaws. Why they didn't make it a hair or two wider in the center is beyond me. Just dumb.
Given that I am using this in my basement to hang clothes next to my washer and dryer, I am okay with the flaws, but I would certainly want to know about them if I was using this for anything besides the basement.
Unfortunately, this product had a lot more potential than it was allowed to achieve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crazykivacat This product is so stylish
I absolutely love it! It was so easy to assemble, and it just gives this room so much personality and an air of artistic style. My house is over a 100 years old and most rooms have no closets, so I installed in in a guest room. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ColoLady1 Good product, looks good, sturdy
We like the looks of the product and it was perfect for a new storage room. Not your typical storage unit. The only issue we had was with the lining up of some screws through the metal. Had to be exactly perfect and the holes bored were not exact. But all in all we really like the product, and assembly was not too hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mimiof4 Great functional piece
I purchased this item for the bonus room, which we'd made into a "family bedroom" for our kids and grandchildren. To conserve floor space, we omitted closets but found we needed a spot to corral luggage and hang clothes. The rack is narrow enough that it fit along the wall in the entry to the bathroom. It looks really great and provides much-needed storage. We found it very easy to assemble and vey nice quality. It is light weight enough to move if needed, but sturdy so that it doesn't wobble or wiggle. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wish The product is very attractive but the ad is misleading. There is no center pole on which to hang the coats.
There is no center pole from which to hang the coats, so the coats etc... Must be hung at the edge which makes the whole ensemble take up much more space and makes it look messier. If you are not using a very public space, such as an entrance, than this does not matter.if you are using a more public setting, such as a hallway or entrance, than it does matter. The item itself is attractive and the bottom and top shelf are very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ddt5 Fits perfectly, holds a lot!
We purchased this coat rack during the week of Christmas, knowing we'd have a ton of company coming and going, and coats hanging around with everyone home is overwhelming!
Despite the timing, it came on time and served us well. I will put it in the basement during the warmer months and it is light enough to do this without a problem.
It wobbles a bit, put once it is weighed down with a few baskets on the lower shelf, the problem is solved.
Got it on sale, and would do it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ajwhite802 Poor Quality
The welds for the screws were messed up, can't get some screws in all of the way. And I will need to put cardboard or something under the legs to get them to balance.
January 15, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by GSAP2007 Poor Manufacture Quality
The legs are uneven lengths so we have to use cardboard shims under two legs to level the rack (on two of four racks that we purchased.) The welds are also crudely done so the finish quality is poor. The racks are sturdy otherwise and meet our need for temporary clothes storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by budgetdecoratorfromWisc Excellent quality, easy set up
I gave this as a gift for a couple that entertains. It held coats for New years eve this year for 30 people. No looking for yours buried under everyone elses on the bed!!! It also made it easy to keep personals in the pockets without fear of losing or forgetting (phones). She will use year round for switching out some seasonal items and "little too tight items" from closet to make more breathing space for the clothes she does wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by acarsj Easy to assemble, sturdy, nice looking
This product was exactly what I was looking for. I am using it in an unfinished basement, but it is very nice looking and could easily be used in a space where others would see it. Assembly is very simple and uses only one size of screw and an allen wrench. My husband held the pieces in place while I put in the screws and we were done in less than 10 minutes. Finished product seems very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KBBW Attractive, functional, sturdy
Assembled easily, sturdy enough to hold a lot of clothes, or coats. You have to balance it, by putting hangers on both sides, and you can't overload it too much, but for residential use, it's very good. I use it for off-season storage, but it could be used for a party or a church coat-rack.

This piece is a great option for those of us who do not have a coat closet for all of those messy coats, shoes and backpacks. LOVE IT! Well packaged and SUPER easy to assemble!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Icicle Looks nice....
from the distance, but up close it looks poorly constructed. However it is sturdy when assembled. Looks nice with clothes hanging on it. Since we have it next to a wall we do not use both sides but I can imagine using it later on as a space divider. Bottom shelf is great for storing our bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Selkie Perfect Coat Rack for My Needs
The style, construction, quality and price were just what I was looking for in a coat rack. My closet space is limited and I needed a convenient solution to corral all of my outerwear. I have this located in a small room off my kitchen so that all my coats, vests and jackets, scarves and gloves, plus my boots are in a handy location to scoot out the door. I purchased the boot tray last year from Ballard and it fits perfectly on the bottom shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PoodlesRock Do not hesitate to buy this!
I've had my eye on this for some time and finally ordered it. Now wish I had not waited so long! It is even more attractive in person. Even if you have one side loaded up a bit, does not tilt. It is a gorgeous rack and room for items on the bottom shelf. My husband and I had this put together in a matter of minutes. Seriously easy. One tip he will give to all out there, don't snug any screws until the whole thing is together! Tightening too soon will certainly appear to make holes/screws not line up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RORO Excellent Quality
I was able to assemble this Coat Rack quickly and easily. It took more time to unpack it than to assemble the unit. Not complaining, though. Ballard items are always well packed. This unit is good looking, although I have it in a large walk in guest closet. I did not follow directions because they didn't make sense to me. My way was better and I'm more than happy with this product. Thanks Ballard. I'll be back!
