Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by frenchdecoratorgirl Beautiful Provence File Console, but...
We purchased this file cabinet in the fall of 2014 in the cream/chestnut. It is a very lovely and substantial piece that goes great with other Provence collection pieces. Color is great (I don't mind the slightly yellowish tone), cabriole legs and roomy drawers. My only disappointment is that the chestnut top has grooves in it! In my opinion, this is not an asset, and takes away a bit of the quality of the piece. This piece looks like fine furniture except for those grooves. I have placed a pretty antique lace runner over the top and the grooves are not visible that way. I do wish HD would have mentioned this detail in their description and show it in the photos. For this reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5. Overall, a very pretty piece., though.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NURSE Provence File Console
I ordered the Provence 54" File Console in Black. Upon opening the boxes (comes in 2), the item was damaged in many places. The following have large dented areas: the 2 drawer front panels, the side panels, all four legs and the top of the console. These areas are uniform "cuts" that appear to have happened on the assembly/manufacturing line. The cuts look exactly the same on all pieces. Further, one panel for the back drawer did not have the precut holes for the screws and dowels. The same for the back panel. The precut holes were on the sides and bottom, but not the top. Also the pieces do not align. This entire ordeal has been a real pain. The pieces probably looks nice "put together" (which I am unable to do because of the above factory flaws) I'm unsure about all the other positive reviews, which is what I based my purchase on. However, I would like to prevent anyone from going through what I've been through. It was suggested I pack all these up and put them back in the tattered / torn box! There are ALOT!!! of pieces to this and to get the assembled back in the box and back to the store is none to impossible for me. PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF HEARTACHE!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jlmath Very stylish
It was in perfect condition when it arrived, well packed, no damage. Since the directions said it took 2 to assemble, I waited for my husband before I started. It was really quite easy, the only thing I really needed help with was lifting the top and putting it on. One of the rare purchases that sent "extra" items (screws, etc) in case they were needed. It is as beautiful as the pictures. As other reviewers stated, the drawer space is really limited. The 2 drawers barely took the files I had in 1 and 1/2 drawers of a vertical file. If it was just made for the files to go left to right instead of front to back it would have much more room.

Our guest bedroom needed a makeover. Needs change and we needed to get my computer out of the kitchen but still needed a guest bedroom. The Provence File Console was so perfect that we also purchased the mirrored bookcase and the writing desk from the Provence collection. Clear instructions. Parts in labeled plastic bags.My husband is very handy and did not have any difficulty with the assembly. I was intimidated by the assembly but would have paid someone to but it together because it was exactly what I wanted and could not find any country French file cabinets. Very practical, useful and inviting area; thank you,HOME DECORATORS.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PatHS I love this piece. It is exactly what I expected. It came in a very timely fashion and for the most part I put it together myself. I would totally recommend this piece. Love the color too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMForager Worth the loooooong wait ....
Although it took six months to receive, the Provence File Console was worth the wait. There are many pieces to assemble, but the assembly process was smooth. There was a horrid chemical stench for the first couple of days, however with open windows and a ceiling fan running 24/7, the stench dissipated. Bottom line, the wait, the multiple pieces and the initial chemical stench considered, this is the most beautiful file cabinet that I have seen.

I was a little worried about the color before receiving it, but we could not be any more happy. The color is beautiful and the cabinet is quite sturdy. It took a bit of patience to put it together, but it was worth the effort. Love it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TBrad Good companion piece to the desk
Very solid and sturdy. Looks like an expensive piece. One of the drawer sliders had a flaw and needed to be straightened before the drawer would fit. Also the notches for the file folder brackets were misaligned from the factory. I made everything work, but had to take away some points. Cream color has a yellow-green cast. Not unattractive, but not a pure white, if that's what you're looking for.
