Medici Capital is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable quality the medici capitals are superior in quality and very beautiful.Our houseplants the beautiful sitting on them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Piece This was a very substantial piece and was packaged very well. I placed it on a dining room table to showcase a centerpiece and it really transforms the centerpiece and even the table. It is heavy and I, of course, wouldn't drag it as it could scratch a surface. However, the Medici is very evenly proportioned and rests on the "soft" parts of the legs, so possible scratching really isn't a concern despite the heaviness of the piece. However, I do have it sitting on a runner, just in case. It is a substantial piece of decor and the price is quite reasonable. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides an opportunity to display my favorite artifacts. I have a number of artifacts which I display through out the living room. Medici Capital is now located beside the fireplace with my tall bronze model clearly on view. It looks great. Plan to use the small one as a center piece on the dining room table for special occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absoultely love this purchase. It is the second one I bought. I originally purchased the large medici capital and loved it so much that I went back and purchased the medium. I can use them separately or stacked. Very versatile and classy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I'm using my Medici Capital to boost my computer monitor, of all things. It's absolutely perfect, lending a touch of unique class to the desk. Very heavy and sturdy. If the need to boost my monitor ceases, I can think of lots of other uses for it. Guests' eyes are drawn to the capital; it makes a nice focal point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and well-made I had eyed these in the Ballard catalog for a long time and finally decided to buy two -- in the medium size. Love them! They are very versatile: I'm using one as a lamp stand, to lift a bedside lamp, and the other is in the master bath to display soaps and lotions. Great quality, and I'll probably buy more in the future. Also -- I'm going to try to "antique" one of mine next week. I'm going to do a little faux rub to add a darker, antique tone to it. I'm betting it will look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't hesitate Sometimes you see an accessory and think "I love that, but where would I put it?" So you don't get it but it keeps haunting you. I've learned from experience to not question my initial reaction. If I love it and can afford it, I get it and it always somehow works in my house. Case in point with these beautiful bases. I purchased the smallest and the medium size. One is under a lovely cake stand on my dining room table and the other supports an old rusted birdcage with a candle inside on my coffee table, elevating each (pun intended). These are BEAUTIFUL. Totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Details This beautifully scrolled design pedestal brings a timeless beauty to any room. I would recommend this column be placed where it's detail can be admired from every corner of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very classy product. Looks great and is of excellent quality. This is a most unique item. It looks great and offers a wide range of decorating potential. I stacked the large and medium size beside a leather chair in the living room with a lavender plant on top. I get many compliments on these. They were shipped promptly, packaged well and a return label included. Can't ask for more than that. This is definitely not my last order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Purchased the Medici Capital for my kitchen. I used it as a plant holder, a centerpiece for my kitchen table, and a stand for a statue. It has many uses and dresses up any room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from elegant The medici capital pieces work beautifully for an accent table. Measure carefully! The pieces are shorter than they look in the catalog.
Date published: 2012-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item This capital is even nicer than I expected. I bought the small size, and put it on top of a credenza that I have in the living room, and put a wooden Santa on it for the holidays. Now that the holidays are over, I think I will put a few framed photos on it. A very nice accent; don't hesitate if you are thinking about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! Never realized there were so many uses for the Medici Capital. I ordered and received 2, but that might not be enough. And sizes to choose from, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product! As others have said this pedestal is incredibly lovely and heavy [in a good way]. I had planned on placing a plant on it, but it's too pretty, so now I have to rethink it's use. In fact I'm thinking of creating a terrarium and using the pedestal to showcase it. I had to laugh at the packaging though. Got home to a HUGE box. The capital was insulated in a box that was then placed in a larger box surrounded with bubble wrap. No chance of damage which I appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The medici capital was all that I hoped it would be. It arrived on time and was packed very good. I would definitley recommend this item. Very good quality. I ordered two and placed them under my torchieres on my bedroom dresser to raise them up. Looks great.
