Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chair cushion Nice shape, comfortably firm, looks great on the chair. Colors in photo appear as white/black, but the check is actually more of a beige/black. Ended up working out perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bar stool cushions and covers Service was excellent; I had 2 exchange item twice because I wasn't sure which color would work best in our kitchen. Customer service was very helpful, and exchange was made easily in both instances. I love the cushions and covers, they are comfortable to sit on and look great in the kitchen!! Thanks so much Ballard Designs!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cushion! I have been looking for chair cushions to fit my dining room chairs for years. These are perfect, the cushions are firm; the foam insert is very dense. The cushion cover fabric is tightly woven and fits the cushions snugly. I would definitely order again and recommend them highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for my needs The fabric pattern, size and detail was perfect for my situation. I had purchased 4 chair cushions in a larger size with the same fabric for an adjoining room several years ago. The fabric was easy to take care of even with occasional spills - the same design/pattern now pulled the 2 rooms together. Even years later the fabric was a perfect match with the previous cushions making it easy to handle situations when we have to bring all the chairs together to accommodate a larger group at the table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully made. Just a bit too big, but keeping anyway. This was my first purchase from your company. Am very satisfied with the quality and delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Purchased the largest size in the black ticking fabric for a set of existing kitchen chairs and the fit and "lift" these cushions add a comfortable experience these chairs never had. I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable! I looked through my Ballard order history and was suprised to see that I ordered my 6 small black check/gingham seat cushions in 2008! They have survived daily abuse of three boys so amazingly well and other than spot cleaning, I have never had them cleaned. I have had to sew back on a tie or two that came loose, but for as long as I have had these, that's to be expected. Hoping they come out with some new patterns so I can change out my look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these cushions The fit of these cushions is great. They are well made, go on and off easily and are washable, making them a low maintenance item. Couldn't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is perfect!! Great product. made well and looks exactly like the pcitures and i would buy it again. I like colors and would have loved one with some design and colors, but these covers are great. Big enough for bigger chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these cushions FINALLY...found the PERFECT chair cushion for my french country kitchen chairs and counter stools!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, beautiful and comfortable. We are extremely pleased with our Ballard Basic Cushions. I had been searching in stores and was unable to find any good quality cushions. Like every other product I have purchased from Ballard Design, the quality is wonderful. My husband and the cats agree that the cushions are very comfortable! I'm happy that the cushion covers are removable for cleaning or a quick color change. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are perfect cushions for the small ladder back chairs in our family room. The style, color, fabric and removable washable fabrics made this a perfect choice for our needs. They look great and I love the tailored finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cushions are great quality I had similar cushions from Ballard for 13 years. They are still I. Great condition and I'm giving then to our nephew. Only complaint is they don't wear out Ha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! After reading some of the less-glowing reviews for these cushions, I was a little bit worried that they wouldn't be as high quality as I knew Ballard Designs' products to usually be. I was delighted to find that the cushions themselves were very neatly and well constructed, very firm, and that the black and cream checked covers I chose were also constructed extremely well, including the ties. If you decide to order these cushions, I hope you will have the same experience as I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality These chair pads are well made and comfortable to sit on. The gray check is more of a blue gray than it appeared on my computer.
Date published: 2013-06-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made very well I've purchased similar cusions from them few years ago but because the outside cover was not removable, it made it very difficult to clean them. The new ones I just purchased does come with removable covers and the fabric is a bit more sturdy. On top of that it was about $20 less each! I wish they had more selections in fabric but I am happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Great pattern, durable, strong ties and firm cushion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cushion for my bar stools. These are just the right size and look great; covers are easily removed for washing. Just don't leave in dryer too long as they are cotton(or at least I have the cotton ones) and will shrink some.
Date published: 2013-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice Nice firm cushions available in a shape that's hard to find. Also nice that the cover is machine washable (not all of them are, though). Overall very good.
Date published: 2015-09-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect choice! I recently bought six of these (plus one in the medium size) and they are wonderful. Well-made and comfy on my antique kitchen chairs. The fabric is sturdy and should last a long time. Thanks, Ballards's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cushions The cushions look great on my dining room chairs. The neutral linen will go with everything and breaks up the wood look. They were wrinkled coming out of the package, but I put them on and then ironed them and they look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality product I was pleasantly surprised at the great quality of these cushions. The fabric was very nice and the workmanship top-notch with a sturdy zipper and even piping. The foam inserts were generous in size, not skimpy like some I looked at.
