Rated 3 out of 5 by Momof2 It works
I had purchased this cushion with the intent of using it on my daughter's desk chair, but it did not fit that chair properly. This was not Ballards fault, but I did think it would work based on measurements. I ended up using it on my son's desk chair instead because it fit better, so I didn't have to return it. I had chosen a neutral color, so it works in both rooms. As far as quality goes, if is fine. There is nothing about it that wowed me--it is just a cushion. I can't speak to the longevity of how it will wear because we have only had it for a few weeks. I do like that I can remove the cover for washing and purchase a different cover if I want to change it. I do wish there were more color options available. The foam density seems adequate. Would I purchase these cushions for dining chairs etc.? I am not sure that I would, but it works for a kid's desk chair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ballardqualityshopper Love this quality product!
When I purchased a new black dining set, I decided on these great cushions instead of having custom cushions made. The medium size fit my chairs and I used two of the large sized cushions on the bench. Love the look and the black/beige check match my kitchen decor perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jannygirl 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.

The seat cushions are very comfortable and well made. A very nice selection if colors which help make our dining room chairs comfortable and highlight the wood chairs. Very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaineLovesBallard Perfect for the chairs
These are the perfect size for the Louie chairs we purchased. They are comfortable and last a long time. I still have the first two I purchased years ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RevMom This cushion will last a long while; it is firm and well-made.
These cushions have several features I particularly like: First, they are well-made of sturdy fabric. Secondly, it is firm, not so soft that you feel like you have been "let down". Thirdly, the fact that the cover zips off and can be laundered is a necessary bonus for chairs that are being used at a table most of the time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lizzy1 They are working okay on my chairs
Had to repair one zipper before inserting cushion. Fabric seems sturdy, will see had they hold up in six months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Classiclady 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermonter 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.

These fit very well. Perfect for turning old dining chairs into new chairs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by delonsmom 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crackers 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 TexasBelle 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maisonprovencale 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mallory 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.

These cushions are made of durable fabric, which is essential for our kitchen chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YardleyCrafter 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by angelbab 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXgalinGA 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Huney 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sandy13 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Freed 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by colorandconsistencymatter 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizza 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by berlin16 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pywacquet 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Curtis522 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gardenstew 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.
