Rated 4 out of 5 by JillMc Pretty, but not as comfortable as I had hoped
I love the look of my new chairs. I bought two for my office that has two different areas. One for sewing, one for computer work. The seat is comfy. The back is not very supportive of my back. It is comfortable to lean back in, but does not adjust to come up when I am on the computer. I will probably get some little pillows to use for back support. The workmanship is great. I supplied my own fabric and I think they turned out beautiful!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JJBNY Pretty, but with sparse padding
I was looking for an understated office chair that was neither for a modern sleek office nor a huge executive chair. I have now used the chair daily for a few weeks, sitting for long hours at the computer. PRO It has nice fabric and a small profile with a good upholstery job and the casters function well. CON Surprisingly stiff and too hard to move into the "tilt/rock-back" position, with much less padding than I expected in the seat and back. I can feel the frame of the chair on the edges of both the seat and the back and under the backs of my legs in the front. I put a pillow behind me which places me in a more comfortable position. Given that it's a custom job at the price it is, I am not happy with the purchase.

I love the looks of the chair, but it is not comfortable at all. It catches me behind the knees and feels like a board. I have tried everything to make it tilt but have had no results. Please tell me what I can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2Busy2BuyTwice Comfortable and pretty!
I ordered this chair for my home office. The chair is well made and comfortable to sit in (i am 5'10"). The wheels on the chair work well (i have wood floors) and it moves easily up and down. The wood on the base of the chair is rich looking and the upholstery well done. I ordered the chair in the toffee check pattern with weathered wood base. It is a nice quality and was worth the wait and price.

We love our desk chair.....The fabric is very nice, the workmanship looks great and the casters move the chair very easily whether you are moving just the chair or sitting on it and moving. The ability to adjust the height is great and works very easily also. The delivery service was excellent, they brought it in the house unwrapped everything and made sure we were happy before leaving.

This chair is all that I expected. I love the custom fabric. It raises and lowers easily--just lift a lever and it goes down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jannygirl Very nice addition to my office
I was searching for a desk chair without arms that would enable me to slide close to my desk. I really like the adjustible feature of the chair and the simple elegent design. DMD

Rated 4 out of 5 by BallardDesignFan The chair is of good quality just like all of the products that I have purchased from Ballard Designs.
The upholstery looks great. Really my only complaint is that the chair is a bit small for my home office, especially for the price. I work from home, and I spend a lot of time sitting in the chair. The seat is too short for me, and I'm just 5'6." So I wish it had a longer seat. Other than that, it is comfortable. It is a firm seat and back. A little more cushion in the seat would be nice since I spend a lot of hours sitting on it.

This chair came quickly and was beautifully done in a grey pattern I choose. It's very comfortable to sit on and was delivered fully assembled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Virginian Excellent value
I think it's hard to order chairs online because you don't have a chance to "test drive" before purchase. That said, I'm very satisfied with my new Covington desk chair. The upholstery job is professional, with beautiful fabric and a clean piped edge. It's not heavily padded, but it's perfect for me as I tend to perch on a chair's edge when I'm at the keyboard and the solid construction supports that. The seat is quite deep, and a more petite person (I'm 5'10") might find the proportions off. Shipping and delivery were as promised and overlall, I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cher Pretty and comfortable!
I am very pleased with the look of this chair! My only regret is that the seat part isn't more padded or stuffed. Otherwise, it is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvmychair Love my chair!
I have been looking for this style chair but never came across it in the fabric I wanted. With Ballard Designs I was able to pick the style chair plus the fabric. The workmanship was flawless. The chair makes the home office!
