Octavia Bookcase is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and unique I had been eyeing this piece for awhile. My living room has teal in it, and I thought the Octavia bookcase would be a nice addition to a corner of the room. Not only is it a nice addition, it actually steals the show now. It's absolutely stunning. From the unique design to the gorgeous color, it's a scene stealer. I have many Ballard furniture pieces, this is by far my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bookcase! This a beautiful and unique bookcase. It is well made and a perfect size. It adds a lot to my living room and I will enjoy being able to switch out items on the shelves for different looks, depending on the time of year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a unique bookcase I ordered the Octavia bookcase for our entryway. It allows me to showcase some of my favorite decor items that set the tone/ambience as guests enter our home; but I think I enjoy it the most!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is pretty but... I really like the bookcase but... it is not as tall as I thought. It is my fault for not paying more attention to the dimensions. I know I can put something on the top of the bookcase to extend the height visually. The smell is very very strong. I hope it goes away. And, it took about 4 months to get to me. So, all in all, I like the product but there have been some bumps along the road. I ordered it in teal and the color is very true to the image.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely, unique piece with a caveat Lovely, unique, piece , BUT the off gassing ( chemicals /finish odor) was VERY strong. Made me ill. I had to put it outside in the garage. I will leave it to air out for a few days and hope that resolves the issue .if it doesn't resolve, I will have to return. : (

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unique Piece But Disappointed I did want to love this piece. It is unique in its' shape (especially the 2 octagon sections) but that is the best accolade I can give it. 1. The color is described as a "Soft Gloss White" and it is. However NOWHERE is the finish described as rustic, or shabby chic, or vintage, etc. I had expected the finish to be solid, but along the edges the paint was removed to create a rustic feel. 2. The back is just fiberboard, not solid wood. Mine had visible damage to the back. Ballard did credit some of my purchase price back because of the damage, but I was disappointed in the quality of the back. The description does not include the fact that the back is fiberboard.. It says the piece is made of hardwood and fine veneers. 3. I have discovered as I went to place a decorative piece on the top that there IS no top. I consider that a pretty big flaw. I view the top of any piece as an additional display area. So now, at my expense, I will have a piece of wood added so I can display items on the top of the cabinet. 4. As another reviewer mentioned, there is a fairly strong odor emanating from the piece. I had intended to purchase a second unit and display one on each side of my fireplace. I am rethinking that decision and am not certain I will move forward with purchasing the second one.
