Tuscan 3-Piece Bookcase Set is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted! These bookcases were expensive, but worth the price! They're beautifully made and look wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bookcases! We were admittedly a bit nervous about buying furniture online so we were very happy when the Tuscan bookcases arrived in perfect condition and were even prettier than we expected. Our home was built in 1880 and the wood floor in the study where we put the bookcases has a few uneven places. But these bookcases come with adjustable "feet" on each corner that made leveling them very easy. We also bought the lateral file unit with hutch to match (the cream color) and it, too, is beautiful -- beveled glass doors and an interior light that turns on and off by touching the door hinge. We are very pleased with the quality and appearance of this furniture and recommend it highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty and Quality I ordered these in Black and I love them! They are very good quality and fill up a wall nicely. The adjustable shelves were a bit hard to slide into the case, but if you place a towel down on the shelf to protect the surface and use a rubber mallet to gently tap them into place, they go in very nicely. My only wish is that they were about 6-12 inches taller for a more dramatic look. But overall, very happy and would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Bookcases! After some issues with the local, unreliable delivery company we finally received our Tuscan bookshelves. They look great in our living room. We ordered the cream and we are very happy with the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AS BEAUTIFUL AS THE PICTURES For the price, this is a great piece. Sure I could have spent twice as much and got something that would hold 50 pounds per shelf, but it was more about the look of the unit (and yeah I saved $$$). Shelves are easy to adjust and it fits perfectly with the rest of my décor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at a reasonable cost These bookcases are sturdy, well finished, and very affordable. They were delivered, uncrated, and installed by professional movers who set them up to my specifications and removed all of the packing debris! The cream color blends with the desk and file console that had arrived earlier. (All three pieces are from different collections.) Everything has exceeded my expectations of quality and style. Most important was they arrived in a timely manner, and my new home office is now both practical and attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bookcases We got the off-white set and they look fabulous. They really make the room. They look great with white molding. The delivery guys were fantastic too. Couldn't be happier with the book cases and the service. Thanks, BD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just spectacular We considered a built-in for the space we have and then we found this piece. It has lovely detail, fabulous finish, wonderfully adjustable shelves and just great detail and workmanship. The delivery was not without problem or sweat but all in all it simply could not have been better. No leveling issues because our piece sits flush on a tile floor. The pieces arrived SO WELL packaged and it's just a spectacular piece. We have several Ballard pieces and we have yet to buy a piece that we weren't happy with...Thanks SO much for such a wonderful piece. The only potential improvement might be to have a lighting option for the shelves...but it really is a wonderful centerpiece to a rather small room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic and beautiful We purchased this set for our second story hallway and they truly look like built-in shelves. We have received many complements. I would definitely buy this set again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eyecatching product I have been eyeballing these bookcases for about 6 months, they went on sale so I took the plunge and ordered them. It's the first thing you notice when you walk in the door and see them across the big wall in my living room. They're beautiful and I get great compliments on them. Very pleased!
Date published: 2012-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended Product was delivered and set up for me with very little involvement on my part. Makes a stunning central focus, is of very good quality and definitely has the feel of a prized antique, but with adjustable shelving. I have never been disappointed in Ballards products and services...keep the catalogs coming!
Date published: 2012-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is worth purchasing. Buying furniture sight-unseen and also from a retailer I have never purchased from before could have been a recipe for disaster. However, the reviews listed did my decision justice, and I cannot be more pleased with the results. The quality is solid, the color/finish is as represented, the already-assembled delivery was a large advantage, and the levelers on the bottom of each unit made installation on an old wooden floor possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of furniture Stunning piece of furniture that looks as if it is custom made. Bought it in the rubbed black finish which gave the room a WOW punch. Sturdy but easy to move. Delivery was in place in selected room and have no complaints except the delivery set in place DID NOT include leveling the bookcase with the built-in levelers. My husband had to level it. We are using the center section piece for our 32" flat screen TV along with books. There are no pre-drilled hiles for cabling TV and cable tuner box so husband had to add the cabling holes. The other two pieces are handling books. Overall we are very pleased with this purchase. We looked at other alternatives but none of them offered the style or the features that this item offered!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I ordered this bookcase set after months of looking for a nice dark wood bookcase big enough to fill a large wall in our family room. The bookcase looks exactly as pictured and all of the shelves are adjustable to meet your design needs. I know that this piece will last for years to come, very timeless!
Date published: 2012-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bookcase! I purchased this in black and absolutely love it. It fits my large living room wall perfectly with tall ceilings. I considered have one built, but for this price it is exactly what I wanted and am very happy. It is on hardwood floors, and I didn't have to level it, they were perfect. The distressing is not much at all, it's still a very elegant piece of furniture. Delivery and setup was great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bookcases I ordered these to comprise a church library. They are beautiful and very well made. Everyone in the congregation who has seen them has commented on their beauty. I was also very pleased with the delivery and communication during the purchase. I have reccommended Ballard Designs over and over, and will definitely purchase from them again. They know what customer service is about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! These 3 pieces were just what we needed to complete our living room. They are well made, easy to adjust and very functional. One review stated that the backs were cheaply made; this is not so. Keep in mind that if you do order the painted surface (we ordered the cream) you MAY get a little paint peeling on the very bottom of the piece. This shouldn't deter you from ordering it, however, because it is a distressed piece and the peeling is not noticeable. We were delighted with the in-home delivery. Overall, an outstanding purchase which we highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty, high quality and great value We are very happy with this bookcase. It's is beautiful and high quality in all respects and looks just like the image in the catalogue. Ballard's delivery service was outstanding and the only assembly required was unpacking and placing the shelves. The system actually exceeded our expectations in that each individual unit comes with internal leveling feet that really helped with set-up. We were initially disappointed with color as it is a shade or two darker than what is shown in the catalog. However, we quickly got used to the darker color as it adds a sense of richness to our room. Overall we love this bookcase and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with the look of this set. These shelves have a beautiful rich finish that dresses up our home office. They are heavy pieces with the look of a built-in unit, but if we move, they can (and will!) go with us. The center shelf was damaged when we opened it, but it was replaced by Ballard, delivered and set up at no charge. We are very happy with the set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very High Quality I searched for about a year for a shelving unit, including custom made. I am very happy with my decision. My son is a carpenter and also put his stamp of approval on my new purchase. The large center unit is indeed LARGE and did not easily fit through a standard doorway from a hallway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have never odered from Ballards before so I wasn't sure about the quality of their furniture, you can't really get a sense of that from pictures. I have to say that I was very pleased when my 3-piece Tuscan Bookcase Set arrived. I was also surprised that I didn't need to assemble them. Overall a great purchase, now I have my eyes on the Argyle Media Armoire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality product The bookshelves exceeded my expectations. The quality is good and they look like well made built-ins. The ivory color is very attractive. When they shipped the first time there was a crack in one of the pieces. It was replaced for us no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I am so glad I splurged and bought this piece (or pieces). I think it looks perfect on the empty wall I put it against. I got the cream color and it was as I expected. This is the second time I've done the In-Home delivery with Ballard and thank goodness the delivery guys unpacked it like I was expecting. The first time they didn't, but the piece was significantly smaller than this one. They brought them straight in and I pushed them right up against the wall. I didn't have to do any leveling either. These are pretty expensive, but I couldn't be happier. Plus, I searched for the perfect bookcases and kept coming back to these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exceeded expectations These bookcases are truly beautiful. They are very well made, and have leveling features. I am a designer and will look forward to using these again. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is everything I was hoping it would be ! I was a little hesitant to order such a big item sight unseen from the internet but boy, am I glad that I took the chance.......I love it ! I have received so may compliments from my friends and neighbors. I would gladly recommend Ballard Designs to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something missing I have the creme ones. They are lovely but need more shelves to fit my books. Ballard’s—can you please sell extra shelves???
Date published: 2018-09-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very attractive but color misleading I bought the Tuscan bookcases in the brown color. When they arrived, I was extremely disappointed in the dark color of them. They looked like a very deep walnut color - almost black. They are beautiful in design and overall looks, but sending them back. Very disappointed.
Date published: 2018-03-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful These bookcases are beautiful! They even have a leveling feature, so even if your floors are uneven, you can adjust each piece to stand level. They are rick looking and I love the crown molding too.
