Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 221 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully Made My happiness with this bench started when I received the box. It was packed with the most care I had ever seen. The bench is very sturdy, and well made. It is a piece that I will have for a very long time. Dont hesitate to buy it, the pictures online dont do it justice! September 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect as described This two seat bench is just exactly what we have been looking for over the past year. It is exactly as advertised. Very sturdy and great looking. August 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It is perfect!! Have it at the end of the bed: it looks great, just the right size for a king size bed & is a super convenient place to put the duvet & extra pillows at night (rather than tossing them on the floor). August 3, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good item for the price. The bench came carefully packed. I am pleased that I will be able to use it for extra seating at the table, as well as in the kitchen hallway to give the kids a place to take off their shoes. July 30, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great accent piece. Originally bought it for a different location in my house ( front door) but moved it into a coat hallway. Love the quality and durability of this product. I bought the dark brown color to match my floors and theme of the house. I think the lighter color benches would have complimented the woven rush seat a bit better since there is more "green" tones on the seat than I was expecting. Overall, great product, picture is not exact but very close. July 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks Great, Good quality, Comfortable. The Dorchester two seat bench is well made and looks great. I use this piece in a variety of situations in my home. The size, quality of workmanship and style lend to its versatility. July 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality piece I love this bench! I use it at my kitchen table and it is sturdy and great looking. I also bought the cushion. Great buy! July 20, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really wonderful bench I love it - very sturdy, well made, looks like "real" furniture, not an inexpensive catalog piece. I saw mention of it in a magazine, and went to Ballard's site - otherwise I would not have known of this source. July 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value Purchased the double bench to put at the foot of the bed in my guest room. It is perfect! Sturdy, functional and it looks great! Very quick shipping also. July 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Bench! Super quality and great looking bench. Looks much more expensive than it was. July 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Waited a little while for this product as it was on backorder. Love it. I needed a little extra seating in my living room area and this fit the bill perfectly. I bought a pillow for this bench and it really looks nice. Great buy! July 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful, stylish, comfortable I just bought a custom trestle table that looks like an antique. I want new chairs, but am not ready to spend the money. In one of the Ballard catalogs, I saw this bench used as seating for a similar table, so I thought I'd give it a try. Not only does it look beautiful, it's comfortable as well. I prefer sitting on the benches! Oh, and it's unexpected. My friends comment that they'd never think to use bench seating at the head of the table. Thanks so much! July 9, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect We were looking for something to put near our entryway, next to the fireplace. This bench is perfect, just the right size for a small spot and it is very well constructed and looks quite nice. July 9, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth the wait I ordered this piece in March and didn't receive it until June! There were moments when I considered cancelling the order (I had ordered several pieces from Ballard and having been dissapointed with the quality had sent them back) but I decided to wait and I was glad that I did. The 3-seat bench with its beautiful cushion look amazing in my mud room area and instantly turned a rather boring area into something special. It is sturdy and the craftsmanship is what I expect from Ballard. I would highly recommend it and would suggest to Ballard to be a little better prepared for its demand. July 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional and Attractive Bench Sturdy, well-constructed, attractive bench. Nice size. Fits at the end of my queen size bed perfectly! July 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect bench for a front entryway Love this bench, put it in my front entryway and it is perfect. Looks exactly like the picture and arrives just like you see it. High quality and a good buy. July 4, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Feels fragile i love the look of my new 3seat bench, but the material that makes up the seat feels fragile. I am concerned that it will get brittle and pieces will break over time. I wonder if there is maintenance I can perform to keep the rush seat in good shape? July 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly like the picture When this arrived it looked exactly like it did in the catalog and fits perfectly into the room. Color and quality are excellent. July 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I purchased the bench in the green color to sit in front of a large window in my living room. It is the perfect way to add extra seating to the room without adding a bulky piece of furniture. The paint on the bench is almost striated with a cream color in under the mossy green. Very well built, I expect we will enjoy this piece for years to come! July 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality...outstanding The Dorchester bench was my first order from Ballard. So impressed! The bench is beautiful, quality is outstanding! Thank you Ballard! I will continue to order from you! June 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Perfect I put this in my guest bedroom at the foot of the bed and it looks great. It is quality material and craftsmanship. The size if ideal for my needs. Love it! June 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! The bench came fully assembled and it was packed very well so as to avoid any damage. The item looks exactly as described and therefore works perfectly with my decor. Good, sturdy quality. Love it! June 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my Dorchester Bench! I am very happy with the bench. Many times when purchasing furniture online the pictures or products can be deceiving. I have come to find after several purchases through Ballard Designs that they truly offer good quality/material products that are exactly what you see online. That is why I keep coming back and will continue to do so. Rebecca June 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the look and comfortable too. I ordered this bench especially for my two grandchildren. Perfect height for them and takes up less space than two heavy chairs at the table. Looks wonderful in any room and is very comfortable to sit on. June 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A well constructed bench: comfortable seating I'd been watching this product in the catalogue and jumped at the sale price. Although I waited at least 4 months for the product, it was well worth the wait. I already had purchased the matching bar stools and was very pleased with their durability and comfort, so it was no surprise that I'd enjoy this dorchester bench. Looks great with my farmer's table and ladder back chairs. June 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the proportions of this bench! This item arrived very well packaged and with no damage, it looks perfect in my guest room and is the exact accent piece I was looking for. Very useful as a luggage rack or seating in a bedroom. It appears in catalog exactly as delivered. Well made and stylish. June 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and well-made Very high quality and attractive. Comes fully assembled which is a real plus. June 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice bench We needed the bench to complement an unused space, and hoped that it would fit the bill perfectly. It did. The piece feels sturdy and appears to be well-constructed. Both the rush seat and the finish on the bench are attractive, we are pleased with the quality of both. June 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great value well constructed, beautiful to look at and well worth the money. June 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I purchased the 3-seat bench in the dark brown finish. It looks great at the end of our king size bed, and it is sturdy and well made. I am very satisfied with it. June 9, 2011
