Toulouse Tall Bookcase 3 5 4 4
Looks nice, but difficult assembly, poor quality control in manufacturing I waited for delivery with great anticipation so I could use this piece in my home office to organize all of my stationery and files in one place. The delivery crew was great and brought the box around the house to the area outside our office door so it would be easier to bring in the pieces without carrying them all through the house. The item was well wrapped and we received it in good condition. My son was there to help me, so the two person assembly was not an issue. What was an issue was that we needed a driver/drill to get the screws into the shelves, and none of the pre-drilled holes were in the right place. So, before we could assemble the piece, we had to take a trip to the hardware store to buy a power driver/drill. When we got back, we followed the instructions, but found that attaching the X-supports first, as indicated, was cumbersome at best because when you turn the shelving unit on its side for step 2, one of the assemblers has to hold the top shelf steady so that the X-supports don't bend under the shelf's weight, which is substantial. Also, one of the iron eyelets for the center shelf was missing, so it is only completely anchored on one side. Truthfully, my son wanted me to return it for one that was properly made, but we had already done so much unwrapping I couldn't see how we'd get it all back into the original package, so we made do with what we got. In the end, it feels sturdy and looks beautiful, but I feel that the item description should disclose that you will need power tools to assemble the unit. I would have made sure I'd gotten what I'd need before it arrived. I also think the manufacturer should do a better job of inspecting the unit before it is packed to ensure that all of the eyelets are properly welded in place and the pre-drilled screw holes line up with the eyelets.

Screw holes don't line up The bookcase feels solid and substantial, but the pre-drilled screw holes on the top and bottom shelves do not line up, so I need to drill them myself, which is a pain. Also, I noticed some of the brackets are bent, making it difficult to put screws in securely. Overall, for as costly as this bookcase is, I would have expected better attention to details.

You have got to be kidding! I just received the shipment of this bookcase. No where in the catalogue nor easily identifiable on the site does it say that it needs assembly. I'm okay with a little assembly but this requires "2 OR MORE PERSONS ARE REQUIRED FOR ASSEMBLY". There are dozens of little pieces wrapped up and awaiting an army of people to assemble. I just called to have the thing shipped back. I'm not going to bother. It's too bad. I have purchased many things from Ballard over the years. Ballard used to be okay but with all relationships sometimes it just has to end. I just wish I didn't have to have their poorly designed and poorly presented product sitting around my house for the next three weeks while I wait for the shipping company to come get it. The customer service young woman was lovely. She sounded as if she hears complaints similar to mine a lot. August 15, 2014
Beautiful It took me forever to find a bookshelf with these dimensions, and it was worth the wait. This is a beautiful piece and very easy to put together by myself. The shelves are nice and thick with nice molding details. The rails are beautiful, too. Perfection! June 24, 2014
