Toulouse Tall Bookcase is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bookcase I bought this for my office and was worried it would be too big. It is a large bookcase but fits great in my smallish office. The best part is that it holds so much as the shelves are quite wide. Also, very easy to put together. Everyone in the office is jealous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I bought two of these bookcases for my new home. I'm very happy with the quality. They are just what I needed in my new living room, with lots of display space for books, photos and decorative items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Find .The bookcase holds many of my favorite items.the size is perfect for my living room,it adds needed height and the width is just perfect. I have books, pictures and mementoes as well as some some greens on it. Everyone that has seen it has been impressed and one person purchased the shorter version for a dining room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and high quality! I wasn't sure about the metal wood mix. I wanted large, high capacity bookcases, but did not want massive solid wood bookcases. I bought two tall ones and put them side by side in a large bedroom. They look great! Very sturdy, great finishes. They mix very well with a metal headboard and antique furniture. Will mix well with any decor. I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and pretty easy to put together. After looking at numberous places for a bookcase we decided to order this one online. It arrived quickly. The directions were strait forward and it was well made. The wood seems to be of good quality. Our only glitch was the crossbar in the back was supposed to screw into one of the shelves but the holes on the bar were too high so they could not be screwed in without risking splitting the shelf. Otherwise, great find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for big books I bought 3 of these and I'm very happy with them. This bookcase has an industrial/rustic look. The shelves are high for my large coffee-table-type books, and the end brackets are essential. Although they're heavy, they're easy to assemble. There are a few details that can be improved on this bookcase: 1) The middle and bottom shelves should be clearly labeled. I couldn't figure out a difference between them, but perhaps that is why I struggled to make one shelf fit on one of the units. 2) The fixed middle shelf ought to come with pre-drilled holes to attach the x-bracing. My drill bit broke trying to drill into the shelf, and I couldn't tighten the screws all the way in. 3) The description ought to include that you need tools (drill & screwdriver) for some of the assembly, and it ought to specify that anti-tilting hardware is included. But they look fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and adjustable shelves! This is a great bookcase - well made, sturdy, interesting mix of decorative iron and medium dark stained wood. Three shelves are fixed and three are adjustable. It was packaged well and easy to put together. The height fills the space well and is a great addition to my living room. So happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait! Only complaint is that the upright supports can be scratched, or marred, when inserting the shelf supports. May try oiling, but otherwise we love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bookcase When I ordered this bookcase, it was apparently on back order, as it took almost two months to get it. But I can assure you that it was worth waiting for. The wood shelves are thick, and have a beautiful stain that will go with almost anything. The package was delivered into my house and assembly was pretty much straight forward. It took me and a friend about an hour total, including stopping in between assembly, to put the bookcase together. While waiting, I looked at other similar bookcases, but they appeared to be cheap quality. This bookcase exudes quality and once assembled, is very sturdy. Overall, I would give it 5 stars!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great look for it's size - not overwhelming My daughter was looking for a bookcase to fit all her "stuff" - books, souvenirs, etc... and this bookcase makes a great presence in a moderately sized room without being overwhelming. It is sturdy and she and I put it together with no problem. We settled on this as it would blend nicely with other furniture in the house for when they are all away/out of college. However, she now says that she would take it with her for an apartment of her own. So I may be looking to buy another in the future.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great! I love the bookcase. It looks great, is good quality, and was easy to assemble. The only thing I have a problem with is the obnoxious amount of money Ballard charged me for shipping. Shipping was $145 for a bookcase that came in a long rectangular box that needed the entire piece to be assembled. I’ve paid less than that for much larger furniture that didn’t need assembly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! Downsized and could not give up ALL my books! Ordered 3 Toulouse: 2 tall &1 low for my greatroom. They allow me to have books, display items, and even store my “office” - including printer. And yet the open design does not overwhelm the room. The only reason I have not rated it 5 stars is that you CAN see the holes in the rear posts of the tall cases that allow you to adjust the shelves. These are not obvious in the available pix. I think they will not bother ne once the bookcases are full, but I was a bit disappointed. Otherwise SPLENDID!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece, but a couple scratches Beautiful, sturdy bookcase. I was disappointed that the metal framework had two decent scratches on the front -- must have occurred before product was packed, because all parts were packed very well, and the shipping box arrived in good condition. Apart from the scratches, I am very pleased with the quality of this piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shelfs Sturdy and good looking. Wish they were just a bit deeper but they are nice. Not too difficult to assemble either.
Date published: 2017-02-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Toulouse bookcase I give only 3 stars bc I was so terribly disappointed with the color of the shelves. In the catalog (AND in the store), the color is kind of a redwood. Orangy. Ordered them because they would match the redwood trim in my living room PERFECTLY. But no, what I got was a dark espresso color. So disappointed! Too much of a hassle to return. I’m just living with it. Otherwise, very nice quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love the look of the bookcase, but the metal part was scratched in several places. Again, I love the look of the bookcases, but was disappointed because the metal was scratched in several places. To pay as much as I did, they should be better quality. I thought about sending them back, but the style fits my decor and it was too much trouble to send them back.
Date published: 2017-05-29
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to assemble No way to install the adjustable shelves. They cannot be fitted through the front or the side pieces of the bookcase no matter how we angle them. Just a pile of metal and wood we moved out to the garage.
