Genevieve Desk is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not too big, not too small Very sturdy construction, although assembly directions need to be updated to reflect specific directions on how to release the drawers from the side tracks. Perfect size, gives you good working space without being overly large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for office desk This desk replaces a large office desk. It works perfectly. I don't feel I've lost any of the features I had in a larger desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great desk! I love this desk. It's very sturdy and feels well made. It was super easy to put together, too. It looks beautiful and has plenty of space in the drawers. I'm not a huge fan of the distressing on the top of the desk; it looks kind of fake/done on purpose as opposed to light and natural distessing. But it's a minor thing overall. I'd still recommend this desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This desk is really beautiful. While there is some assembly, it is really not difficult to complete. It looks perfect in my little study room; it is just as I pictured it. It is well worth the cost as it looks much more expensive than it is , and it truly looks elegant in person. I would not hesitate to purchase this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I am using this as a vanity in my bedroom. It's the perfect size for a couple of lamps and a makeup mirror, as well as room for brushes, small containers, jewelry holder, lotions, a candle, etc... It looks exactly as it does in the picture, and arrived in perfect condition with just a couple of easy steps to put it together. Be prepared for a large, heavy box delivered to your door! Also, it has very good drawer space, although the drawers are not very deep (can't stand up bottles of foundation).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In LOVE with this desk This desk was delivered very quickly, was super easy to put together and is absolutely gorgeous! It fits perfectly in our bedroom right in front of our window. Everything that I have ordered from Ballard Designs is of high quality and is so beautiful, this desk being no exception. This will last for many, many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed by the high quality. My daughter wanted an antique looking desk for her bedroom and after searching on many sites and stores, we settled on the Genevieve Desk. It was priced well and the shipping was not outrageous. It arrived rather quickly and was easy to put together. It is rather substantial and heavy, but I was impressed by its quality as it is very sturdy and does not look or feel like a typical reproduction piece. It is beautiful in my daughter's room and she loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely lovely desk we are using for a desk vanity in daughter's room. Highly recommended. This is the first item I have bought from Ballad Designs. I wasn't sure of the quality of the piece when we ordered it, but we are thrilled! It is very sturdy and well made. The drawers have high quality metal slides which should last for years, and make the drawers easy to use. I bought this for my teenage daughter's room to use as a dressing table and small desk. It is a perfect size for a bedroom, and it holds her makeup, her laptop and her sketching supplies. And we have designed her room around this one piece. It is stunning and we get lots of compliments on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome! I just love this desk so much! It is fantastic quality and looks great in my house! The drawers slide nicely and you can tell they are made well. There seems to be plenty of room in it and it looks great in our house! Very very very very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genevieve Desk I am so happy with my desk. It makes the perfect vanity table. Came in excellent condition and was easy to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive, sturdy, nice detail. Better than photo I have purchased several items from Ballard over the years and this is one of my favorites. The color was perfect for the room and it looks lovely beneath a bedroom window with a view to the garden. Big enough to work on but elegant enough to clear off for guests. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Solid desk; easy to put together. Great for guest bedroom or small office area. Looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this desk I am using this desk as my make-up table. I absolutely love it! There is plenty of storage for all my products, and i can even fit my straight iron and hair dryer in the drawer. The drawer length is roomy, where I could fit a large organizer in the drawer's. Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This desk was a perfect fit for our daughter at college We bought the desk for our daughter for college. It matched perfectly with her other pieces and just fit the space. The quality is very nice and she is still very pleased with the desk. Thanks Ballard!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I ordered this desk in the distressed cream. It is absolutely gorgeous! It arrived very quickly and was easy, though awkward, to assemble. The desk is solid and sturdy. I love that there are two choices of knobs included. The price is reasonable. The drawers are the perfect size, though I would have preferred a file drawer on one side. My only complaint and reason for four stars is that the faux distressing is horrible! I love distressed furniture but this was done very badly, especially the top. I would have preferred no distressing to this poor job. Overall, love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beauty and practicality with a French flair The desk is everything I wanted: perfect size and good color and great lines. My only suggestion is that the stressing on the desk is silly--someone with a small tool made the identical mark every 6 inches--easily painted out but why bother in the first place? My engineer husband had no trouble attaching the legs once he redrilled the holes on the one side. I still love it and it's perfect in my guest room.
