Vintage Wall Pocket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my home office I ordered two of the large wall pockets. They look great in my home office and are as pictured - not distressed, but not shiny either. More like a oiled finish. I am planning to order two more for another room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic style, good quality A great way to remove clutter from desk surface - easily mount-able and cool vintage look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like the picture I read the previous two reviews and almost did not order the product. I called Ballard, however, and they assured me that the metal was not "shiny" and more like the distressed- or rubbed look that is pictured. Indeed when it came it was as pictured. We have a rubbed brass light and it looks like the file hanger and lamp were purchased together. Perfect product for that vintage look. Our office happens to be right inside our front entry so I am very picky about the design and look of our office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial looking, but works well in any setting! My style is rustic, but with new influences & I have upholstered Ballard Design chairs, hemp rug, one of their classic desks that they sell (that they now sell in charcoal) and a old bookshelf that I rubbed black wax on that is very antique looking & the shelf goes well w/ my mix of style. The best part about the organizer is that is hides dust wall, doesn't get dirty & doesn't get damaged during shipping...the last one I got that matched my desk, came damaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for the bath! I bought this wall pocket to put in our master bath - in an attempt to keep magazines and papers off the floor. It looks great and does the job. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful, and it looks cool.... This is a great way to corral my kids' school papers, etc. And looks good on the wall next to my desk, without taking away from the overall decor in the room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great just not what pictured I read the reviews and expected the metal to not look as distressed as the picture but was disappointed because the actual finish is not distressed at all. Why does Ballard keep using this picture? Would have given a 5 star rating if it looked at all like the picture they use. It is functional, easy to hang but ask for an honest picture before you buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great. Not rustic looking as it looks from the images on the website but still looks good. Very happy with the product overall. Just a little disappointed that it didn't have the aged zinc finish. It has a very clean slick dark finish but seems to go with the colour of our cupboard doors so fits in nicely. Arrived in perfect condition to New Zealand. Very happy with the service and product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Office job holders The craftsmanship and color was awesome , the two mounting eye holes on the back are cut to high toward the top almost all wall anchors on the market will be seen about 1/8 outside after hanging. If the eye slot was a little shorter it would be perfect. I was able to retrofit to not see wall anchor otherwise easy install

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like but Don't Love I really do like this product but I should've read the reviews before ordering. It does not look like the picture at all as far as finish. The picture shows a black vintage matte finish but it's really a glossy dark brown. I am keeping it as I do still like it but I would've preferred a black vintage matte look instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functions great, doesn't look as it does in the picture Purchased this product mainly do to the functionality, I couldn't find a simlar product. The vintage photo in the magazine is not close to the almost solid dark brown the product actually is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average I think these are very useful and well made but I somewhat agree with the person who said they were shiny. In the picture they look matte and distressed. I personally don't think that's the case. They don't look as distressed in person and definitely have a sheen to them. I paid a lot for shipping and I need them so up they will go but if I would of saw them in person I don't think I would of paid as much as I did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings This wall pocket is well-constructed, and will definitely serve the purpose for which it was purchased, but I am disappointed with the color and finish of the product. In my opinion, it does not look like the photo. It's not that the color and finish are bad, it's just not what I wanted. I wanted a wall pocket that looks like the photo shown. I'm not returning the item. I'll live with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Metal was warped so wouldn't lay flat against the wall, which meant that every time I put something in the file pockets, the metal banged against the drywall. Eventually put Velcro all along the backside, which helped, but think for the price you pay the pockets should have been equipped with a better hanging system.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from oversight? I bought this to have easy access to file folders while sitting at my desk. But amazingly, the pockets are not wide enough to hold a regular letter-sized manila folder. Surprising, as this is advertised as a file organizer. Also surprising that no other reviewers mentioned the fact that while papers do fit, file folders (which are only a half inch wider at most?) do not. Disappointed about that, as it's only providing half the functionality I expected but it's too large to ship back, and it's already been bolted into the wall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks cute but Flimsy Construction I have had this less than a year, and been storing only lightweight materials in it. I don't use it much, really. But I just noticed the upper pocket has completely separated away from the backside. Papers now slide down the back and top can't hold anything. Very poor construction. Seeing as how this is now the second product I've purchased from BD that is junk, I'm probably not going to shop here again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not look like picture Sorry kids...I cannot agree with the other 2 reviewers. I was sooo excited about the look of this product. Pockets looked low profile. (My fault for not looking at specs to see that though pockets did not look as though they stick out very far, in fact they are 3.5 inches at the top opening.) But..... the thing that I liked the best when I ordered them was that they looked like they had a very cool matte, distressed, non shiny, irregular finish. In fact they are glossy and shiny!!! Picture does not reflect this at all! I am bummed. Wanted them to look old or "reclaimed". Anyway...I will now have an expense to send them back when they are truly not as shown. Not happy.......

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not As Pictured These arrived not as pictured. Metal is a brown/bronze color, not aged silver as indicated on the website; and is cheap. The items both smelled like they've been in a musty basement for 10+ years. The label holders had a rusty scratch around them that I couldn't tell if it was supposed to be there or if it was damage. They are going back unfortunately at my expense; and I will therefore not be ordering from Ballard Designs again. New policy will equate to new orders from me; but until that time--it's not worth the risk of ordering with them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality, not like the image online This was not worth $ paid, a huge disappointment from Ballard. The finish is more of a brown/greenish tone that the rustic zinc/weathered silver look. This product is cheaply made and the finish is painted on, I was expecting weathered metal not cheap painted tin. It took 4 months for it to arrive and it arrived with dents. This might be worth a 1/3 of the listed price, its my first disappointing Ballard purchase.
