Rated 2 out of 5 by gsds Height adjustment inaccurate
Stools were described in the specifications as adjusting from 26". However, they adjust from 30". Therefore, they do not work with the table where I had hoped to use them. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MCP33 Broke Easily, Wobbly
I ordered four of these stools and they look great, but all four broke within one month. There is a screw on the bottom that provides that height adjustment, and it keeps falling off the bottom of the stool. The stools just spin and spin and strip the screws. The stools are also very wobbly. I sadly returned all four stools.

While these are more expensive than other options, we found the quality to be well worth the cost. They are beautiful, sturdy, and well designed. Others that cost less from other stores were not as well constructed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susan9 Too Short for Raised Counter
I had hoped this was the one. We made our counters extra high when building our island (super tall family) and want new stools now that our kids are older. Please make this spin higher in the next design. There is a need for this and it wouldn't have to change the design in other ways. Otherwise, great stool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by needadiscount Professional service and good quality merchandise.
I have never been disappointed when receiving Ballards goods. Ballards ships items promptly (very important) and packages well. I receive compliments on the merchandise and then questions on where I got the items. The regular sales provide another incentive to always check for any savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv2Them This product fits in nicely to our newly remodeled kitchen.
I was very hesitant ordering these stools without trying them out. However, I decided to take a chance because I truly liked the looks of them. They were delivered in less than a week, and I was not disappointed. They are the perfect touch to our newly remodeled kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shauneen Great Value for Quality Product!
These are a great value for a quality product. They are also sturdy and adjustable height stools for any size. I'd been looking at this style of barstool for quite awhile since they can be expensive when replacing several at once. I've looked at several different vendors looking for ones that would be sturdy (safe) enough and these fit the bill entirely. Very satisfied with my purchase.

by loveballard154 Great quality and beautiful
I absolutely love these stools. I ordered two for my counter-height island and they adjust to accommodate the tall adults and the small children. They are quite heavy and do not tip over when the children climb on them, which is a huge bonus. The wood is a very muted brown, as though it sat in the sun and weathered nicely. The feet are rubber-ish but they are wide enough to attach protectors if desired. They are just gorgeous to look at. The seats do wobble very slightly if extended towards the upper height, but it is not enough to feel rickety or unsafe; they still feel very sturdy. I would not hesitate to buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ballardlovinggurl Love the style finishes lacking
Love BD one of these bar stools came with the top metal ring detached we repaired wooden tops DO need a protective coating...dont use until sealed. Lately quality control has been lax everything I receive 1 of 3 will have some type of factory "flaw" ...usually repair get out my paint brushes & touched up the finish/poor quality control at the factory. So I suggest open immediately as I wasn't ready for the items yet but bought ahead based on sales/discounts. That said I DO keep ordering & just placed another HUGE order cuz just love their style!

Rated 2 out of 5 by bringinghomethebacon Quality Is Not Nearly As Good As It Was
I bought two of these stools a couple years ago and loved them. I recently ordered a third and the quality is not nearly as nice as it was. I'm keeping it so I have a matching set, but am so disappointed in the look and feel of third stool.

Well made stools - easy to adjust height. Look perfect in our wine room next to our wine barrel table! We highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Microbe love the look
Love the look of these stools at our bar and the fact that the height is adjustable. Like some other reviewers, I did add a couple of coats of clear poly, both for protection and because I thought the wood looked dull and dry without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by panache Allen Stool is great
I looked at quite a few stools that were less expensive - but the quality difference is incredible. This stool is extremely well made and very attractive. There is a little movement when the seat is turned all the way up but the feeling is still very secure. I love being able to turn around in my kitchen during prep. Great place to sit and read recipes as well as sip a glass of wine at the kitchen counter. The stool came quickly and was packaged really well for delivery. All in all, I am quite happy with this stool.

I bought 2 stools for L-shaped kitchen island that isn't built for people sitting at. I wanted something smaller, easy to move if I wanted them out of the way. These are perfect! Love the look of them and the they are adjustable. My husband even likes them. We use them way more than I thought we would.

by Lucy4523 Great Quality... Industrial and Warm!!!
I, like many people was on what felt like the eternal search for the "right" stools for our kitchen. After buying four sets of other stools and sending them back, I found the Allen Stool!
It is the right mix of industrial, but has a warm inviting feel. We needed something with a smaller footprint to tuck under the counter and these are perfect. I also needed something easy to clean( four year old and loads of friends). Ps... The height adjustment is great and the spinning was a hit! The stools are very stable and don't feel like they will topple over easily.
I will mention that we needed a darker colored seat so I did stain the seat and apply polyurethane, very easy to do. The original color was lovely, but did not coordinate well in our kitchen.
I was delighted that Ballard offered these and at a Bring Home Ballard price:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by writenow Versatile style; great quality
I bought these for our ski-lodge-style finished basement. Because you can adjust the height so easily, they have multiple uses and serve as extra seating when the teenage boys are playing video games or watching each other play ping pong, around the dining table, and at the kitchen peninsula. They are light enough to pick up and move but heavy enough not to topple over. I can't get over the quality for the price. The feet will not wreck your carpet or tile floor, still I added felt circles underneath the rubber foot protectors. I also added a satin clear coat to my wooden seats because kids will likely come in from the pool and sit on them with wet bathing suits, but that was a choice and not a necessity. Goes really well with a variety of metals. It's not black, not gray, not copper or bronze. The metal is a dark color that works with everything and anything.

These stools, with and w/o the backrest, are cute as can be and go well in our home which is in an old fabric mill. The base is very sturdy and the seat is rustic in appearance but finished well. They do feel a bit wobbly on the screw mechanism but the adjustment feature is very nice.
