Rated 1 out of 5 by Susan2 Poor quality overall (cushion/insert & cover)
I ordered four of the small essential cushions. Although the inserts are described as 1 1/2" poly foam, the foam isn't good quality (there certainly is no density to the foam) & the linen covers are also poor quality (piped edges are misshaped & the cover doesn't fit the insert as tightly as I would like to give the cushion the crisp look as pictured in the catalog). I am only keeping, because I needed right away, but will probably have cushions made for my chairs sometime in the future. I suppose it's true that you "get what you pay for", but Ballard products that I and/or my friends & family members have purchased in the past were a better value.

I don't know how much you can really say about a cushion....but, as far as cushions go these are great! Fabric is of a good quality and construction is A+! I ordered the sage check and it is a wonderful shade of green.

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 Shopper2012 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.

The cushion looks good, a real folk-art design.
However, it is very hard. Had I know it was this hard I would not have ordered it.

The cushion was exactly as described and of good quality. We only wish there was an option for a cushion that was a bit thicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KeepinItSimple 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 HappyShopper101 Perfect amount of style and cushion
These cushions are adorable and fit the stools I purchased from Ballard perfectly. The cherry on top is that they are actually comfortable and make sitting at the bar more than a 5 minute venture. I would definitely recommend these for look and comfort both!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Newintown Not a good quality
I am returning these. The cushions are not sturdy enough to add any protection and the fabric is not very good looking- I ordered the black and cream stripe and it is extremely unattractive- the cream has a gray overtone and appears extremely drab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dopry Very cushy!
I had been looking for chair cushions for the dining room for a long time, and finally decided to buy these from Ballard. I ordered the swatch first, to make sure the color would match. The cushions are very dense, I think they will hold up well. And finally, no more sore backside on the hard wooden chairs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NCboomer Fit is perfect.
I purchased the Large cushion in Kakhi in cotton.
Fits perfect for my kitchen chairs..I purchased 2 to see if I'd like them & will be ordering 3 more.
Although I would have liked more choices of fabric.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 88Keys I was very diappointed and returned this product.
Although the cushions were a good size and the twill fabric was a nice color, the fabric was hopelessly wrinkled. My steam iron would not remove the wrinkles.
Since the covers come separate from the cushions, a fact I was not aware of when I placed my order, this becomes a "do-it-yourself" kit. I expected ready to use cushions. I would have kept them if I could have gotten the wrinkles out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ballardisthebest cushions are great; color of covers is off
I love the cushions ~ they are firm, just the right size, and good quality. The covers, however, were not as pictured. I ordered the "celery" twill ones, which looked green both online and in the catalog. However, when they arrived, they were a very light beige/khaki. Also, unfortunately, one was the wrong size and shape entirely, but packaged as if it were a matching style with the rest of the set. So even if the color had been true to what was pictured, I would have had to send that one back anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TuckersMom Cushion and covers are good quality.
I ordered the white quilted cushion covers and they are very nice. Only problem was an issue with a loose zipper on one cushion, but I expect Ballard to send me a new one soon. But the cushions look very nice in my black & white kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rusty22 I like them a lot!
The cushions are very nice and I like the caramel color. I haven't washed them yet, but hopefully they will be durable. The thickness is great and I use them every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Countrytouch 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.

I would have given the cushions 4 stars,but one of the ties came off fairly quickly after they were on the chair. The cushtions were not tied too tightly for this to occur by use.Otherwise I am quite satisfied with my purchase.

This cushions lack any kind of density. Pretty much go flat when you sit. I wouldn't recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonesz8 excellent quality for the price
This is the second set of chair pads we've purchased from Ballard Designs. The quality and durability are so good, we ordered another set. After many years of use, the foam inserts finally "squished" so we ordered replacements. Turns out we really just needed new inserts - the old covers are still in great shape with bright color! The fabric washes well with just minor shrinkage & colors are true to the catalog or online colors. Spills wipe up easily with damp sponge - with no residue - in spite of getting regular use in the kitchen by adults and lots of grandchildren!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MittenState 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 4 out of 5 by GiGi Great Quality But Size Not Quite Right
The cushion insert for this bar stool cushion measured properly, but when I stuffed it in the cover, the whole thing was too small, and curled up from the cover not fitting properly. The cover was 1/2 inch smaller all around than advertised, and definitely too small for the insert.
The quality of the entire thing was really good, apart from the size. Nicely sewn, plaids matched, strong welting in the seams. Zipper worked easily. I am disappointed to have to return them for an exchange, but happy with Ballard's customer service, so not so bad.
