I ordered 3 pillows and twill covers for my couch. The pillows are great quality as are the covers.
The pillows are a little softer fill than I though they should be. The description should said soft down fill. However I am happy with them.

I ordered three and plan to give two away as Christmas gifts, keeping one for myself. I always enjoy giving gifts which I know the persons will enjoy receiving and making it something special for them....like the monogramming on each pillow with their initials. Should not be a problem with how to care for the pillowcases as they can be easily removed for cleaning. Love that!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hooks02000 Poor quality
The pillow insert is white and shows right thru the brown pillow fabric, looks terrible.

I ordered two of these pillows for my living room. They add just the right touch to my couches without taking up too much sitting space. I usually sew my own decorative pillows but this particular set I could have not completed for the price Ballard Designs offered. It was a great deal and the quality is up to my high standards.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shop4Mom Very disappointed!
Very disappointed. The inserts are much smaller than the pillow and the pillow is very flat. I ordered the color celery to match the curtains and the color is way off - almost light tan. The two that I ordered didn't even match - very different from each other. I even ordered a second pair to see if the first was a mistake - still no good.

These pillows were meticulously monogrammed and came in a timely fashion. They are really well made, and the inserts are of good quality. I would use these in many clients homes. They look good on the sofa and do not appear wrinkled when used as a backrest.

I ordered this pillow for my chair and a half and it is perfect! High quality fabric and monogramming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by schlvr Just off the mark
I ordered the rectangle pillow in apple green velvet with monogram but was disappointed that the green color is washed out; not a vibrant apple green as it looked online and in earlier catalogues; it just misses the mark in being an outstanding value otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTMH pillow has pizazz
I ordered the black and white checked pillow and can't believe how it ties the room together. It is well made and the fabric is great. I've gotten compliments already.

Very pleased with the look and quality of essential pillows I ordered. They allow a custom look by adding other pieces in the same fabric, without a custom price.

Color is vibrant, pillows are made well and are very comfortable, just the right amount of down and feathers in the pillow insert.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jsherm Flatten quickly
These pillows have flattened very quickly. Not sure what we need to do to get them to 'fluffen' up. Given the price paid we expected a lot more from them.

I bought these pillows and mongrammed covers for two Adirondack chairs on my cottage porch. They look more expensive than they are, the color is a true navy blue and they provide just the right amount of lumbar support - they're perfect!

Outstanding quality and workmanship. And I like that I was able to match a Ballards Essential tablecloth purchased some time ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by charlotteandhenry Great quality, fast shipping!
These pillows are wonderful! Both the inserts and covers are high quality - and free monogramming is such a treat! I was so delighted with these pillows that I've purchased more - would definitely recommend to others. Note, these are very soft - they'll stand up in their own for decorative purposes, but won't provide a lot of support (which is expected for down/down alternative pillow, just a note for those who may not think about it!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarquetteGrad Great buy and quality
I purchased two pillows and inserts that were monogrammed. The quality of the product was very good - color and corresponding thread color of monogram were great. Delivery was fast. I am very pleased with the what I purchased. Actually, I have been pleased with all my purchases from Ballard Design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunny2 Attractive Designer Pillow
My 12 x 14 pillow turned out perfectly. The pillow is well made with even seams and a hidden zipper. The piping gives it a nice designer touch without the added cost. I added a monogram to my pillow for the finishing touch. The velvet fabric was perfect. The down insert gives the pillow added fluffiness. I love this pillow so much that I plan to order a few more. For the price, this pillow is a steal!

I ordered this pillow in cream with gold monogramming. The craftmanship is just great, and the pillow very soft. Love that I can unzip and take off to clean. I am very satisfied with this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cole2mr A little flimsy
I expected the actual pillows to be fuller and firmer. It almost feels like the cover is too big for for the pillows. They look a little flimsy and sloppy. I'm keeping them, but it's just not exactly what I had in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DixieChik It's my go-to pillow...a great value.
This is the third monogrammed pillow of this size that I have purchased from Ballard Designs in different colors and monogram styles. It's my go-to pillow, nice quality and versatile enough for a sofa, bed, even for a child's room. Love the price too - it's a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by meluvmecasa Beautiful Pillow - Nice Material
I ordered a pillow and had it monogrammed for my son's room.
The pillow insert is real down so it is super soft, but holds its shape well. The pillow cover is very well made, the material soft, and the monogramming is beautiful! Although it is for my son's bed (he is 15 - and may not match my level of excitement for monogrammed pillows) it is quite nice; adds a classy touch! I recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeekingBeauty Beautiful--- Looks hand tailored
I am very pleased with the Essential pillow, which I ordered in a sand colored twill material. The color and feel of the material are wonderful & I am very pleased with the down-blend insert, which is soft, but can be plumped up. The insert does not have the unpleasant smell that some inferior down-blend inserts have. The price is very reasonable, especially given the superior quality. My only disappointment is that they don't carry it in a 16" X 16" size. I will definitely purchase more of these pillows!

This is my third monogrammed pillow from BD, and I am officially addicted to these pillows (a southern girl just can't have enough monogrammed products.) I have shopped at other high-end, on-line boutiques, and for the quality and price, BD just can't be beat. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DellaD Great Finishing Touch!
I purchased this pillow in the natural burlap and had it monogrammed in cream. It is the perfect finishing touch in a room that is accented with various burlap items (lamp shades, 2 other Ballard toss pillows...Ballard Burlap Shower Curtain in the adjoining bath). Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kkb2 Awesome pillows!
I just wanted to say I had never ordered from Ballard before and I am very happy that I did! I ordered the basic pillows in black/white check. They are great quality and look so good on my sofa. I was impressed with the service/shipping. My pillows came before the estimated delivery date. Will have no hesitation in ordering from Ballard Designs again! Thanks!

love the pillow covers but find the inserts not 'puffy' enough to sit alone on the sofa with out creases, they don't 'sit up straight' unless i fluff them.
