Medici Capital is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful and functional I love these pedestals so much!! Such a small addition to the room, but what a huge effect they have on the look of the room! I am really tempted to buy more of them and actually took a photo of them and a co-worker (a guy) loved them so much he wanted the info on where to get them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, size, color and material to match other things in the room. I initially ordered one capital to make certain that it was what I wanted, I was surprized the the captial looked as good as it looked in the picture. It was the right size, the right color, and the material was similar to another small pedistal that I already owned. Therefore it was a perfect fit for my room. So perfect I ordered the smaller size so that I would have the look shown in the picture. This was my first purchase from Ballard but won't be the last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but color is "off" Just received my medici capital (medium size) today ... arrived very quickly. True to what others have mentioned, it is pretty stark white, much whiter than depicted online, at least on my computer monitor. Plus it has a vanilla/yellowish undertone. No worries, though ... I already anticipated applying a light stain to get the color and depth I wanted. Took some leftover wood stain and applied it lightly, wiping immediately with a dry cloth to get the desired effect. Now, it's perfect! Will use it in so many ways. Have been eyeing this beauty for a long time and glad I finally decided to purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for so many applications! I would have given this small capital, I purchased, five stars if it was a little bit darker in the crevasses. Since I'm not exactly happy with it this way, I am going to do it myself with a little watered down walnut stain and wipe it quickly, one side at a time. Then it will be PERFECTION!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall pleased A bit larger than I pictured, but works perfectly. It is well made and quite sturdy. I am actually using it as a stand for flat screen tv, I needed to raise it bit off the console. To be honest I was contemplating returning it only because I wasn't sure of how it was fitting in with the rest of my decor, but after reading other reviews of this product I have to say I never thought of staining it to darken it a bit. After the holidays that is what I will be doing so it will not stand out as much and it should be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the beauty but not the fragility. I love the capitals and the way they look and planned to use them as pictured above as an end table. However, I wish they has a final seal on the top. I am concerned that a water glass or any drink glass would leave a ring and additionally if anything knocked into them, like a vacuum cleaner, then they could chip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I bought one in each size and use them around the house to elevate things. They are very attractive and practical. I think they are good basic decorating pieces that allow me to be more creative in my decorating. The only thing I would change about them is I would make them a slight bit darker. I think they would look better with a little more shading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Greek Pedestal 14" Like anything Ballard, it is a great item. Would have given it 5 stars had it been not so white. In order to fit in my decor I had to antique it to tone down the stark white. Great addition otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice but not as pictured in catalog The product is nice but not as dark as pictured..needs to be stained in the carved areas to recreate the look in the catalog. Otherwise would have been great.
Date published: 2014-05-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as expected I felt this item looked better in the catalog. It appears to have an "unfinished" texture which allows it to scratch the floors & the item itself to scratch easily.I did not feel the item price matched the value of the item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Size misrepresented in description. The medium capital was described as being 10" square, which I took to be the top (usable) surface area. In reality, the top surface is not square at all but an irregular shape with elongated corners, and the actual surface area on which a displayed object sits measures only 8" square, which was too small to accommodate the sculpture I intended to display. If actual USABLE surface measurement rather than overall dimensions had been stated in description I would not have had to return the capital and pay return shipping cost as well. Very disappointing!
