Casa Florentina San Marino Secretary Desk with Hutch is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful blue color The blue color is awesome. Desk is well-built and sturdy. Originally the hutch part arrived damaged, but customer service was excellent about replacing it right away and we had no issues with the second one. Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color. The furniture took longer than I expected, but it was worth the wait. I ordered the distressed red and was a little nervous since the furniture is so large. The color was perfect! I was impressed with how it was packed and shipped. Also, I was happy with the easy assembly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Stunning desk. Well made - beautiful and sturdy. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece of furniture The finish is just as pictured. It is a heavy, solid, well constructed desk and hutch. Good attention to detail; the drawers are even lined with marbled paper. It fits beautifully into my decor. I find that the interior measurements of the hutch and lower cabinets are slightly smaller than what was written in the product description. My printer does not fit in the lower cabinet as I thought it would. There were also several delays before it was shipped and took several months to arrive. Ballard kept me informed about all of that. I'd say it was worth the wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is well constructed and beautiful The San Marino Secretary Desk with Hutch is beautiful. The distressed blue grey color is exactly like the sample that I received. The piece is well made and very substantial. The hardware is attractive and the desk mechanisms allow the drop front to move smoothly and safely up and down. I watched the men unpack each section, and it was very well protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a beautiful piece of furniture. I had to wait almost 12 weeks for this item to be delivered, but it was well worth the wait. It is a beautiful crafted piece of furniture. My only 'complaint' was I paid for in-home delivery because of the size of the secretary/desk however, when it was delivered, they unpacked and delivered 3 huge pieces into my home but would not set up the desk with the hutch. Becuase of the size and weight of each piece, I had to find someone to help me put the pieces together which took another 2 days. Once the pieces were assembled and was thrilled with my purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional I love the functionality of this piece and the aesthetic. But the reason I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is because the color of the piece is not what matched the picture online. The "off white" is more of a TRUE white. They have (since my order) added a "cream" in addition to "off white." My piece has both a gray distressing as well as some brown, which is interesting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Ballard quality piece of furniture. The overall quality is great, the finish is okay, I prefer more of a subtle sheen so I applied a soft wax and finished it off with steel wool. It looks wonderful. The storage in the desk is plentiful but I am disappointed with the hutch. I had planned to use it for my cookbooks since it is in my kitchen but the depth only allows for small books so I had to make another plan. All in all, I am very pleased with the piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Three Star Quality It was a long covid wait to receive this piece. That’s not the reason for the 3 stars. The hutch part was damaged and the replacement won’t arrive for 7 months. That’s not the 3 stars either. What is 3 stars is the lack of quality in the piece. Everything from the fold-down leaf only having a removable key as the knob and to the interior joinery looking slightly off. I plan to add some lighting to the replacement hutch since it’s so dark. I doubt I’d choose this secretary again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if I would order again I ordered this in the walnut stain and was a little disappointed with the color. It seemed cheap and fake. It didn’t really look or feel like real wood. The style and design is beautiful though. I was also a little disappointed with the function. The bookcase hutch simply isn’t deep enough to hold most books, making it more decorative than functional. Also a concern are the hinges located on the inside of the secretary hutch. They are very large and unsightly. Zoom in on the website pictures and you can see them. They are black and chrome and in no way match the rest of the antique hardware on this furniture.
