Tuscan Secretary Desk is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Secretary Desk This secretary desk is beautiful, well made, and exactly what I was looking for in a small space. I thought it would be a bit more “rustic” ( I got the grey finish), and while there are a few deliberate imperfections, it was not the worn look I was going for, but beautiful, non the less. No issues with product or delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect! The packing to ensure arrival without damage was amazing. The drawers slide out fully and are large and easy to pull, the shelf in the desk is an added plus, the desk hight is perfect for any dining room chair. This piece is exceptional quality! The plugs and light are such a nice added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. Outstanding quality. Smooth, silky finish. Versatile finish choices. Functional. Great storage. Attractive display lights. Stunning! I chose several pieces of the Tuscan Collection for a sitting room off our master bedroom suite. I had never furnished this room but have used it for several years for arts & crafts, sewing, wreath making, design work, garden planing, etc. I used to work off folding card tables because I could never find exactly what I wanted for furniture - attractive but functional with lots of storage. I had seen this collection in your mail-order catalog but wasn't sure about the quality until you opened your new store near us. Well, the quality is outstanding! I was sold upon first sight after examining the store display. The finish is smooth and silky feeling. I love the touch display lights. The room's paint color is a deep purple sapphire blue and I chose the Tuscan Cream finish - the room is stunning! Best of all the pieces are functional and I am able to store all my tools and supplies and have three separate work areas that I can leave set up so I can continue hobby endeavors at will. I absolutely love this collection - so glad I waited so long to find exactly what I wanted. I have been a long-standing customer of your mail-order business and you offered me a great discount - much appreciated. I will now have a hard time staying out of your new store. Lastly, the delivery and delivery team were exceptional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant, strong and beautiful storage I LOVE this secretary. I work from home and was looking for a work/storage piece that would be useful and also beautiful as it is placed in our living room. With the desk closed, the piece is slim and unobtrusive. With the desk open, there is plenty of work surface. I'm astounded at the capacity of the upper shelves, interior shelf, and drawers for files and other storage. Exceptional piece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, sturdy and the perfect size This secretary desk is sturdy, elegant and just the right size. Plenty of space for my desktop and laptop to fit inside. I like the touch lighting system on the display cabinet. Drawers hold my files and all my office essentials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Winner!! The Tuscan Secretary is awesome! The wood and design perfectly matches our other Tuscan bookcases; the "touch" light in the upper glass doors works perfectly; the desktop plugs for lamps, laptops and cell phones are extremely convenient for owner and guests! The drawers work smoothly and quietly. Just a perfect addition to our guest room!! I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you again, Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Piece for a Samll Space Looked for something like like for a long while and finally found through Ballard. Only drawback was that they do not ship to Canada so had to pick-up in the states. Uses space efficiently in the den in our condo with good finishing and lots of display and storage place. Only suggestion would be is to add additaon glass shelf, and add light inside the desk/lap top area

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful addition! I have been looking for a secretary that would fit in the master bedroom on the main floor and would coordinate with our existing furniture. We have had to use our laptop at the dining room table for convenience and end up moving it when needing the table. This secretary is perfect. I can keep our laptop out and close up the desk when finished. The secretary is well made, sturdy and looks like a beautiful vintage piece. The depth is perfect. It easily fits our laptop and other necessary items. So glad we purchased this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece! I was thrilled to come across this beautiful Tuscan furniture line! I had been searching for some time for a secretary desk w/ hutch for my small, 3rd bedroom/office. This secretary is very solid, well-designed & the finish is just as described: satin black with just a little (not too much) distress finish. The drop-down desk panel is very sturdy and smooth - a good surface to work on. Love the practical storage drawers for small office supplies and the file drawer is ample for most household filing needs. The top, glass-doored display area w/ glass shelf & interior light is icing on the cake! I ordered two additional Tuscan pieces to create my office/media/library wall. This furniture is gorgeous and worth the price. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I bought this as a work area for myself in the corner of my new huge kitchen. I LOVE IT! This piece is tall, the stain is beautiful, and it is very efficient. It's imposing size makes it look like a built in. There is plenty of desk space when the lid drops down...and it is very very sturdy and well built. The cabinet has a touch light, which is very nice too. The drawers lock so there is no chance of tipping...we used the enclosed angle irons to attach it to the wall. For the money, you cannot go wrong. Thanks Ballard for another winner!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality This secretary is very pretty and well made. It fits nicely in a smaller room. The only problem seems to be the drawers are sometimes tough to open.
Date published: 2019-10-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has potential needs improving. It is a nice desk appearance and size for what I wanted. But for price point the quality isn’t quite there. A couple small Improvements outside of the materaials are the top cabinet only has one shelf. It leaves a lot of wasted space and I can’t even add shel daily as there are only a small area of pre drilled holes. The bottom drawer hS space for hanging folder but the rails don’t click into space so they constantly fall out creating a mess. Very frustrating and cheap. Still trying to figure out how to “fix it”

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tucan secretary I recently purchased the secretary. When we got it home we found a crack in the back panel. It would have been too costly to return it as we had to rent a truck to pick it up. Ballard evidently saw my entry and called me, they were nice enough first of all to call, and then they reduced the price of the item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheaply made - do not buy I bought these a month ago. They look just like the photos - very nice LOOKING. However, the quality of construction is AWFUL. Cheap, shelves bow with barely any weight on them. Finish comes off (I got the tuscan cream) with the slightest touch. I am very disappointed in ballard for using this factory to make them. If you are not going to touch or use them, they're pretty to look at. But not functional at all...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not a quality piece of furniture If you are use to purchasing "quality" furniture this piece is not for you. It is cheaply made. The first time it was delivered one of the doors was torn off. The second time everything appeared ok until we cleaned it up which was hard to do because it seems to need a second coat of paint. The file drawer did not latch on one side, neither of the upper glass doors were in alignment, one of the hinges was broken. Even after making all these repairs to the piece i am very concerned about how long the moving pieces will really last and work as they are cheaply made. The piece does have everything i wanted in a secretary and the style is wonderful Too bad a little more craftmanship was not used. Also agree there needs to be a light in the desk portion we added three battery "Puck" lights and it makes a huge difference Have bought many things from Ballard this one was a disappointment.
