Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 159 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased. Cushions are very comfortable and covers are sturdy. January 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Would purchase again I purchased the petite Essential Cushions for some antique French chairs with rush seats, and they were too small. I returned them in exchange for the small size which is a better fit. The quality of the twill is excellent but only had then for about a month so don't know how they will hold up in the laundry and long term. I am very satisfied with them now and in the future, I will probably order another set in another fabric. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the price! This cushion fits perfectly on a standard rush-seated bar or counter stool. You cannot find this size anywhere else, according to my searches. It is extremely well made. December 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great color These fit very well. Perfect for turning old dining chairs into new chairs. December 3, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sizing and overall quality of cushions I purchased four of the same cushions. I gave a three star rating because at least one tie from each cushion tore off once the cushions were actually used. This occurred immediately upon use. Even after loosening the ties to accommodate more movement, the ripping apart still occurred. I did not bother returning for replacements because I'd already returned them once, due to sizing issues. I continue to use them WITHOUT the ties. November 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good choice for chair pad set Ballard's cushions seem to be better quality than many out there, and the check pattern is so versatile. Particularly like the idea that the insert can be removed to wash the cover. The cream in the black/cream check is really darker than what I thought it to be from the picture. November 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Solid Cushion The 8 cushions that I ordered seem to be solid and well made although one of the ties has pulled free from one of the cushions. This is easy to repair so I would still recommend this product. November 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product is good. The size is perfect and the colors are nice for our home. The product would be enhanced if the material was "scotch guarded" or similarly treated to ward off stains. Also, the foam loses its firmness pretty quickly. October 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great color, fit chair perfectly, durable washable fabric. These cushions are made of durable fabric, which is essential for our kitchen chairs. October 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These cushions are just right The cushions arrived well protected in sturdy boxes. The quality is great - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Would reorder again. I continue to be impressed with the quality level from Ballard at fair prices. October 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by perfect fit for small cushion This is a plain cushion, not quite the color I wanted but it will work for the warmer months. I just wish there was a wider selection of prints in this cushion. October 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfy & stylish I worried they wouldn't be comfortable since the 'pad' seemed thin, but I sit at this table for hours studying and they are very comfy. Bought the black check and it goes wonderfully with my black round dinning table with four chairs. October 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love them!! We've had the cushions for a short time, and are totally pleased with the product. The color is as pictured and the inserts fit into the covers perfectly. We love them! And, oh yes, they are extremely comfortable too. September 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by overall okay I thought the check would be a bit smaller but it still looks good. I bought them to go with the Lemans counter stool but only wish they were a bit larger and fit the seat of the stool better. Still nice to have the cushion on the bottom and is functional. September 27, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too small!! I was told that this size seat cushion would fit the ballroom folding chair and it was too small. This was after ordering the covers as well. It was too late to return them and even though the cushion itself is comfortable, they not only look peculiar they are uncomfortable to sit on since it does not cover the wood completely. September 26, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by pillow inserts were different colors which showed through the "bright white" cotton covers The order was 4 petite poly foam inserts and 4 "bright white" cotton covers. First, I was sent 3 inserts with a strong yellow color foam and 1 insert that was white poly foam. The "bright white" cushion covers could not hide the difference in the color underneath. Then, I was sent replacement poly foam cushions--all yellow. Although they are now consistent the yellow poly foam is evident underneath the cover. The covers are not opaque enough to hide the color of the poly foam. September 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These large cushions are perfect for my cane bottom chairs. My cane bottom chairs had previously had a custom made cushions which were no longer suitable. Ballard design was the only merchant that even provided a cushion with desired dimensions. The bonus twill fabric which may be machine washed were a perfect option for daily use. August 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit - just like I had hoped I ordered 6 medium seat cushions with ties in the black/cream pattern and they are beautiful. As always, I love the Ballard quality. June 4, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Assembly required The cushions were foam inserts that had to be put into the cloth covers. Not easy. They also did not fit my Windsor chairs well as the foam was stiff. The color was not as pictured, so I returned them the same day. The whole process took me over an hour assembling then disassembling. June 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 1, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice sizing choices I love the fact that I can finally buy chair cushions that actually fit some of our chairs. I have the Small cushions for our kitchen chairs and the Petite for our older dining room chairs. I only rate it three stars because of the quality of the cushion inserts. May 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great cushions Really happy with these cushions! I shopped and shopped and had samples sent and in the end am very pleased with these. Our dining table is part of an open floor plan, so the seats and cushions are always front and center so I really wanted something of high quality that looked nice but didn't distract from anything else. May 4, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average cushion The cushion looks good and I like having the zipper. However, the foam is not dense enough and after using them approx. 1 month, they have begun to flatten. April 25, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by 8 medium essential cushions - cover quality very good, insert quality poor I gave the product and average rating because of the inserts' poor quality. The quality of the cotton covers seems very good, even though I purchased them recently and have not washed them yet. Inserts are hard, stiff and seem to already be sinking in the center. There are many good quality, and reasonably priced, inserts available nowadays that are or feel like cotton or down/feathers. You should look into replacing the inserts you offer. April 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted Size was perfect. Came in a variety of sizes and colors. Shipped quickly. April 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I really enjoy this item. The first time I ordered the cushions I got the ones with the buttons and was very unhappy. I like these ones much more. March 29, 2013
