Rated 4 out of 5 by LeftPhilly Good value
The counter stool has a very nice wood finish and is easy to assemble. It offers a comfortable seat and back rest. The swivel seat is a great feature and saves the floor from scratches. It would be nice to have more color options for the leather, or even offer a linen cover.

We looked for months for the perfect counter stools for our new house kitchen island. These were it! Great price, great quality and beautiful wood and leather. I read all the reviews and wanted to make sure I was making the best choice, and we did! GREAT stools. I love the large (but not too large) seat and the prefect comfort, yet firm level and the quality craftsmanship. They have a normal swivel too. Not too tight nor too loose. We are really in love!

These stools (black w/ honey undertones) are extremely comfortable, functional, and stylish! They give my kitchen a completely updated look and are replacing old Windsor style stools. The assembly was very easy - my husband completed the task w/in an hour for (5) stools. I ordered this style stool for my pub table in my Great Room a few years ago and knew at that time they were awesome. The packaging and assembly is better now from what I can remember when receiving the pub stools. We are planning on purchasing a small summer cottage and I already have these in mind (in a lighter color). Always a happy customer w/ Ballard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Metrowestmom Perfect compliment to my kitchen
I looked everywhere for stools to compliment the decor of my kitchen island in my new home and these were the only ones I found that fit the bill (without spending an exorbitant amount for custom stools). The color of both the woodwork and the leather are light but rich. The stools are comfortable, sturdy and well-constructed. They really are quite beautiful. We receive compliments on them every time people visit our home. My biggest complaint is that the nailhead trim appears to be glued on which cheapens them a bit, but for the price I don't think we could have gotten nicer stools. We are very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peanut The product is sturdy and beautiful.
We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen and I was looking for white counter stools. Yours were the only really nice looking white ones I could find, so I ordered one to see if I liked the color of the leather. It is absolutely beautiful and just what I wanted. The carmel leather is soft and a perfect shade for my kitchen. The chairs are comfortable and swivel with ease. They are well constructed and have a classy look to them. I have since ordered 3 more stools and we are thrilled to have them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BJBo Bulky in looks but well made for price
The frame is too heavy for its height, giving it a bulky quality. However, in all black, the overall silhouette is simplified, somewhat masculine, even though the back is oval. (We returned the ivory/camel combo. Looked good on line but was too clumsy on site.)
The product seems well made - no obvious wobbles or concerns with strength.

Just replaced old counter stools because they lost their seat support. These are very well made, a lot of support in the seat, color is very rich (cherry/black). I get compliments on them from everyone that walks in my kitchen. I have 3 of them up against a solid black granite countertop. They were easy to assemble. The only small negative comment I would make is that the swivel is not very flexible even though they are getting better in time. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonfire Solidly constructed and beautiful.
I have always admired these stools in the catalog, but was a little nervous to order them without seeing them. They arrived only a couple of days after I ordered them. They were very well packaged and the assembly was easy. Best of all, they look gorgeous in my kitchen. I would definitely recommend these stools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MyJean Berkshire Armless Counter Stool
After looking for 6 months for counter stools for our renovated kitchen, we decided to purchase these stools. The height was the problem for us since we needed 25" high, and they are hard to find. The chairs look great and the height is perfect, The only problem we are having is that one stool swivels freely and the other is very stiff.
Do you have a solution for us?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ronn High quality product
The stools appear to be of good quality and set very comfortably. They were well described in the online material. The delivery was actually shorter than orginally estimated. The leather feels expensive. Good products are not cheap and these made us happy.

I ordered the "Berkshire Armless Counter Stools" in black leather and distressed cherry and we are extremely happy with them! A couple of years back, while visiting our friends, my husband and I fell in love with these stools. After we finished remodeling the kitchen, we asked our friends how happy they were with their counter stools and we found out they were completely satisfied with the quality of the leather/wood/workmanship. I was always afraid of ordering furniture on the Internet, but seeing and touching the stools in person and then finding out our friends have been very happy with them, was really helpful. Our order arrived very fast, and the stools were in perfect condition! They are sturdy and sophisticated, comfortable and constructed very well. Words cannot describe how pleased we are with this product as well as Ballard Design who exceeded our expectations! If you like what you see in the picture, don't think twice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenjen Great addition to our kitchen
We ordered three counter stools and after they arrived realized we had room for one more at our island. We ordered another and were shipped a bar stool by mistake. You corrected the problem without hassle at no cost to us. The stools are beautiful and comfortable. They look great in our new kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DelightedinPA They are perfect!
We bought 4 of these counter stools and love them. They are just as good looking and comfortable as the $1,500 chairs we were considering previously and did not buy because of the price. They look perfect in our newly renovated high-end kitchen and are constructed well; the swivel seat moves smoothly and the leather and closed back complement the huge island without taking your eye too much to the chair; it's the perfect balance. Our two to five-year old grandchildren sit comfortably on them too and we don't worry if they drop things on them; they clean up beautifully. We are dellighted!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Toby great bar stools
I love the look of this stool in the catalog. But the stool itself was beyond my expectations. It was very very heavy and sturdy. The design was impeccable. But I had two issues with it. I ordered four stools. One of them that a leather seating area that had stitching that was sort of off-center by about one inch. It was noticeable. The second issue was that anytime the swiveling of the stool caused it to hit the granite counter, it made gashes in the wood. So now I have two barstools that have unattractive gashes in the wood simply because they were swiveled too much.
