Bourdonnais File Cabinet is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks great and is functional I loved the look of this file cabinet because it doesn't look like a file cabinet, it looks like a nice piece of furniture. I have this in my dining room with the hutch and it looks great, and is exactly what I wanted. It is a heavy duty piece of furniture and will last a long time. The finish is is so nice. I was afraid it would look country being distressed, but is has just enough that it doesn't go county and looks so sophisticated. I am 100% satisfied with the purchase. I get so many compliments on the piece. If you are questioning if you should purchase, don't. It is worth every cent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This file cabinet is of higher quality and looks than the pictures on the web site suggest This file cabinet is a very nice piece of furniture. It saw it on the website and felt that it met my storage needs and that it would look nice in my office. When it arrived, I was surprised to see how much nicer it is than the picture suggested. Further, I am impressed with the sliding mechanism of the drawers which move in and out smoothly and appear to be able to support the load that my files will put on them. This is a heavy piece of furniture and I would encourage buyers to pay the extra fee for delivery and unpackaging. It weighs over 100 pounds and as I said is a nice piece of furniture. This file cabinet exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product meets every need The Bourdonnais File Cabinets that we purchased have allowed me to completely organize our home office. They are beautifully finished and allow me to have all of my "office" needs close at hand. We love them and recommend them whole heartedly to anyone needing help in organizing their home office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Piece of Furniture I recently purchased this file cabinet along with the matching desk. They are both beautifully made and are extremely heavy pieces. They arrived in perfect condition rather quickly after placing the order. I would highly recommend these pieces to anyone looking to furnish a sophisticated home office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking Addition To My Office This cabinet met the quality and appearance I wanted and looks extremely well with the companion desk-top organizer. Only wish that I had room for a second one. One constructive criticism is that Ballard Designs only drop loads and this cabinet is quite heavy and they should adopt a policy whereby the customer can choose to pay an additional amount especially when the piece will be located on a second floor. You charge extra for over-sized freight why not incorporate this change in your policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from elegant Bought this along with the matching desk in Belgium Oak. I was surprised at the quality. It is very solid and heavy. You can only open one draw at a time, which will save it tipping. The draw will also only open when both handles are pulled. This makes it easier to slide. My husband was so impressed be bought the matching set as well. This is definitely a quality piece of furniture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solidly built, but missing parts and finish doesn't wow me I bought the Bourdonnais desk and file cabinet in the Belgian Oak finish. The desk is lovely and sturdy, evenly finished. The file cabinet, however, is a bit of a disappointment. Solidly constructed, but the "rustic" finish is uneven, cheapening the overall appeal of the piece. The oak used for the frame/cabinet of the piece has totally different burling and coloring than the drawers (which are smooth-grained and nicely finished). On the front sides and top of the cabinet, I can see wood filler spots (bright putty colored) in several places where small finish nails are located. Granted, the filler spots are small, but there are no less than 15 of them and it's all I see when I look at the piece. Also, my cabinet did not come with file bars, so before I could use the cabinet, I had to retrofit my two drawers with bars purchased separately at an office supply store, even though the packing instructions stated it came with 4 metal file bars. While I would not recommend the Belgian Oak finish because of the previously mentioned flaws, I am impressed with the heft, construction and design of the Bourdonnais collection. I chose poorly on the finish, but I would recommend the collection if you are considering something other than Belgian Oak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Piece I am very pleased with this piece of furniture. It is a well-built, sturdy filing cabinet. Also, the mahogany stain is true to the color shown in the catalog.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely file cabinet. This file cabinet looks great and was delivered promptly. The operation of the drawers could be smoother and the bars for the files should fit better. Still it serves it's purpose and looks good doing so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice piece for our office Very nice cabinet & works well with our office. The only problem is that the bottom drawer sticks. Other than that, perfect & we love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice, but not great quality We bought this for extra storage in our home office and while it looks nice on the outside, the inside is cheaply made, especially considering the price. Was a little disappointed:(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Showed up damaged Another Ballard item that showed up damaged. I did get a discount but also keep in mind the desk that goes with this book case showed up over 5 times and each time it was badly damaged. I am still without a desk.
Date published: 2015-03-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Drawers uneven and bottom one won't open Overall the piece was not bad looking but functionally the drawers are hanging unevenly (you can see an uneven space along the top of the top drawers) and do not open as they should. The bottom drawers would not open and the top drawer did not open easily. I can't imagine how much this problem would be exacerbated with the weight of actual files in the drawers. I would expect better quality for the price.
