Rated 5 out of 5 by OntheBayou Love love love it!
I have had my eye on this piece for several years and finally bought it. I absolutley love it! I got the rubbed black. It is not a shiny black, but muted with the distressed look. Very beautiful and perfect for flat screen TVs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BonnieBlue Terrific piece.
Armoire (in black) arrived yesterday. It is all that's pictured and more.
The piece is heavy, very well constructed and...just beautiful.
Strongly advise that you chose set -up; would not have been able to manage the volumes of packing materials, nor the sheer size and weight of product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2sweet This cabinet is very nice & has the features we needed.
It is a good looking cabinet and fits perfectly in the corner
of our den. I have been looking for some time for the
right look and the right size cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TMRD a beautiful piece of furniture
We love this media armoire. It was carefully packed and in perfect condition. The design and quality are outstanding, surprisingly so for the price.
Once my husband leveled it according to the (easy) directions, the bi-fold doors stayed back with no problem.
I plan to order other items from Ballard Design in the future because of the high quality and reasonable price of this armoire.

This is a beautiful piece. When ordering, I was concerned about the color - in some of my Ballard catalogs the color appeared rich dark brown, in others it appeared to have more of a reddish tone. I was hoping for the rich dark brown, and that is what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElfOwl The slim design is ideal for flat-screen TVs.
I have a big TV, but I live in a condo. I looked at a dozen or more cabinets. The cabinets that would accommodate my TV were huge and would have taken up a great deal of my living room. This one is just right: slim, but with plenty of room for my TV as well as all my electronic gear. It is also beautiful and has good hardware. Although it weighs something like 700 pounds, it was delivered to the spot I wanted without marring it or any walls. I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Xena Excellent piece of furniture!
I was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of the media cabinet. I have never been disappointed by anything purchased from Ballard, but I had never purchased anything this large. The delivery company was friendly and efficient, they really knew the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiDiRocks A very nice addition to our living room!
We like having a TV in our living room, but not having it out in the open, when not in use or when we are entertaining. The Chadwick Media Armoire was the perfect solution. It is a very attractive and useful piece of furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mgray Nice quality and hides the TV when it's not in use.
Beware that the nice minimum depth is wonderful for the TV but we had to remove the back at the bottom to accommodate the components (tuner/DVD player/cable box/etc) because they are a couple of inches deeper than the cabinet depth. We paid the extra to have it unpacked and setup in our living room. Definitely worth it as they delivery guys took all the packing materials away with them. Nice functional piece of furniture

Rated 5 out of 5 by DIY4Fun This slim line Armoire is a perfect fit
My 42 inch TV was a perfect fit inside the Chadwick Armoire. With limited space in my family room I was especially pleased that it didn't overpower the room.

Looks great! Our 47" TV just fits. Makes our relatively small den look bigger. We love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Remodelfun Such a beautiful piece of furniture
I received the armoire within a week of ordering, it was shipped by truck and was thoroughly packaged with styrofoam. The delivery men unwrapped and placed it in my newly remodeled livingroom, and it is beautiful! Perfect size, and I was able to purchase a larger television set (46"). Love the bifold doors, and the expansive storage underneath. Definitely recommend this piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisK Nice piece - at a nice price
We looked all around for an Armoire that could hold a 42" TV and other components and could close. This did the trick! It looks very nice in our traditional living room and I like that it is slim. It takes up very little space, but offers just what we wanted.
The delivery team did a good job getting it in and placing it. Like other's say - it is very nicely protected - with a lot of foam. Thank goodness they took the waste with them!
For those that say the pulls are not aligned, be sure to see the instructions on how to level the piece. When mine was placed, the doors and pulls were uneven. I adjusted the levelness and now it is perfect. Too bad the delivery company does not do that.... Ballard may want to have them do that - so it is aligned correctly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Spent2much Disappointed.
This was an expensive purchase for me and I'm sorry to say I am not completely satisfied with the quality of this item. The handle pull on the doors are not alighned, one is higher than the other. When the top set of doors is closed, the space is large so I can see the digital number lights through the opening. This item had a small chip in the wood at the bottom when it was delivered and I called the 800# and got a credit. If I would have seen the other issues, I would have asked for a replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by T50LovesBallard Product is gorgeous
I just love the armoire. Since it is only 18 inches wide, it is perfect for our smaller family room and doesn't overtake the room. A very good purchase for the price. The piece looks a lot more expensive than it is. The only advice I'd give concerns delivery. You must get the In-home delivery like I did. The piece is extremely heavy and the two movers that came to my house were very strong and the piece was still a big struggle for them to place. Luckily this was for my first floor of my house..it if had to go upstairs, it would have been a gigantic challenge for them I believe. Overall I LOVE this piece of furniture and have received tons of compliments on it already.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jannygirl Great Product
This is the second Chadwick Armoire I've had in 8 years. I had to give away the 1st one because it was too big for my new apartment. I've moved again to a larger place, and like my new armoire as much as I did the frst one.
My only complaints are
There is a long rectangular hole in the back where the TV goes, and I can't see any need for it, because there is a small round hole for the wires. Also the styrofoam packaging is a nuisance. It takes a long time to remove and clean up. I know you need to protect the furniture for shipping, but wish you could find another way.
I have purchsed many items from Ballard over the years, and have never been disappointed.
PS You have me listed as Jannygirl, but that is not me.
Please use Nina, from Maryland.

Rated 4 out of 5 by harleechik perfect armoire for flatscreen tv
We were nervous about ordering such a large piece online, but Ballard hasn't let us down yet so we moved forward. The delivery was very nice--movers were professional, had me look the piece over before accepting delivery, and took care and concern when moving it into the house.
We love the slim design-perfect for a flat-screened tv. I love that it doesn't jut out into the room. It seems a little top heavy, as it is soooo tall, but we don't have children at home so no worries. If I had small children I think I would attach it to the wall.
My only disappointment is that the handles on the front don't line up. My husband worked with them a little and improved them a little, but there just isn't much that can be done unfortunately. We are probably the only people that would be looking at it that closely, but it still bothers us. Other than that, no complaints and it's a good piece for the affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveMyShepherds Great Armoire
This armoire was just what I was looking for to go with my new 42" flat screen. I like all the attention to detail they put into it such as the cutouts on the back of some of the shelves for cord management ease and how the back of it slides open and closed. Also like how the doors open ALL the way up with the hinge system they used. I purchased the brown and was very pleased. It is dark but not too dark. Would definitely recommend to other people looking for a media armoire.

We had limited space at the foot of our bed and needed an armoire that was shallow. This one did the job! It arrived quicky and was almost over packed. No damage. The only bad is all of the foam that is inside the unit. Had to buy a shop vac to get all out.

I heard of Ballard Design from a friend. I have been impressed with the ordering and shipping. My armoire was better than I expected. The quality is great for the price I paid, and I did shop around. The packaging was over the top, but the piece did not have one speck of damage. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bnurse Beautiful and excellent quality
I have been looking for the perfect armoire and this is it. Beautiful, rich wood with smooth functional hardware that glides when doors opened. Smells polished and waxed. Doors fold back completely. 2 framed out sliding panels in back make for access to media equipment without drilling holes or punching out pieces.
Packed with large pieces of styrofoam (that are not taken away) to keep solid during transport and placement.
No scratches, dents etc, well packed.
Very happy with armoire!
