Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful! This nice bench fits anywhere in our home. It is so useful when you need to sit down even to tie a shoe lace. It makes a beautiful addition to any corner. December 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bench I love this bench. We use it as a coffee table in front of our sofa. Kids put their feet up on it and can set a tray full of goodies on it for snacks. So far it seems to be sturdy and has held up. Looks great and very versatile if we need extra seating in the room its light weight and easy to move around. Delivery was quick. December 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by the dorchester triple bench is great quality! my first purchase from ballard design. Not only do i love the dorchester bench that i purchased, i received it within a week in perfect condition and was very pleased with the packaging. December 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for the price I use these in a rather long entrance hall for seating or just a place to put the coat for visitors. It makes the corridor look furnished but doesn't obstruct the view. Practical and good looking. December 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the second bench I have ordered-I Love Them This is my second bench I have ordered. I entertain quite a bit during the holidays and always need extra seating around the dining room table. I include the 2 benches with upholstered chairs and it looks amazing-plus the height is perfect for my dining room table. Any other time of the year I use one in the family entrance to my home and one in a guest bedroom with pillows. December 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits Right In! The "Dorchester Chair Height Stool" was the perfect addition to our foyer. It is the type of purchase that fits right in, and feels like we've had it forever. It is a very high quality item, and was packaged for shipment beautifully. Thank you. Ruth November 30, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by great bench Love it! I got it in black and it looks great in my entryway. The only negative is that the woven part is coming up a little bit - hopefully that won't get worse. Great value for the price. November 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality is excellent My Dorcester bench arrived and now sits in my entry. The bench looks even better than I expected and the quality is excellent. My husband even commented on how great it looks and staying within our budget as well! November 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and well made I'm very pleased with the three seater bench. It arrived completely built, not needing to be assembled. It is very attractive. I plan on purchasing a one seater soon. November 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE the bench. I bought it for an entry hall but it was a little too big for the space so it ended up in the kitchen nook for use with a 32" rd table. It's sturdy, sits comfortably and looks great. I know I will use it for extra seating when we have family and friends visiting. I'm waiting for the single bench to come in for the original space. November 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by construction extremely well constructed, will be purchasing additional pieces November 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little stool I ordered these 2 stools for in my kitchen and they look fantastic! The color of the wood is beautiful and the stool itself is very sturdy! I have ordered from Ballard's before and they never disappoint me! November 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stools are sturdy and attractive These stools are exactly what I have been looking for; no backs to interfere with my kitchen desk area; can be pushed under the desk to facilitate ease of walking in the area. And the price was great! November 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them! These stools are beautiful and very sturdy, for our office room. November 4, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dorechester Bench I really like my Dorchester Bench. The seat is wider than I thought it would be which is great for comfort. Fits so nice on the wall I picked out for it. Now I'm browsing through the catalog trying to decide on a cushion for my cute bench. November 3, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dorchester 3 seat bench I love the way this bench looks in my entryway. The one draw back is that the woven rush bench sheds a lot and I am consistently having to sweep up the shavings off my dark hard wood floors. November 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beauty, functionality and comfort all in one stool. Love the Dorchester chair height stools I purchased. After searching in local stores for many months, I finally discovered the Dorchester chair height stools by Ballard and purchased them right away. They are beyond my expectations for looks, comfort and function. I use them regularly for extra seating at our dining table, and have also arranged them together in front of my love seat in the den as a coffee table when needed. A great product! November 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful bench just as advertized! and very beautiful!!! I would recommend it. may h October 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice style, scale and quality I debated ordering this bench for some time as I was uncertain whether the color would work in the room -- online color representations are so challenging. Color is perfect. The bench is a great size and scale for the end of a queen-sized bed. Quick delivery. Love it! October 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely beautifull bench Very well made, extremely solid bench, i honestly could not be happier with this purchase! October 16, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by This chair height stool meets all my expectations. I am sitting on this well made, sturdy stool as I type this review. Thank you for asking my opinion and for providing a quality product. I will continue to make purchases from Ballard based on this merchandise and the customer service. October 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great anything stool I just received my chair height Dorchester Stools in rubbed black. They came quickly and well packaged. I placed them in a little nook in my kitchen. They serve as overflow seating at my kitchen table, stepping stool for items on high shelves and as seating at a console chest in my kitchen while working at my lap top. They are well constructed and seemingly very sturdy. They are small and light enough to move where ever they are needed but yet look handsome and substantial. Good job Ballard! October 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful & Sturdy I was impressed with the thorough packaging. Bench is fully assembled and ready-to-go out of the box. Exactly as pictured in the catalog and the seat is woven well. Great mahogany finish and is perfect in our entryway. October 7, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by The bench was true to it's picture in your catalog. The bench was quite nice and exactly as I expected. I was attracted to this bench for it's simplicity and spindle legs. Most benches I looked at were heavy, informal and too big. The spindle legs make this bench delicate and unique, plus the option of a 2-seat or 3-seat, was nice. The woven rush seat is sturdy and comfortable enough to sit on without a cushion. I would definitely recommend this bench. October 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly What I Wanted I needed a small seat to use at my computer which resides in a computer cabinet. This stool is chair height and is perfect. It tucks away nicely in a corner of my family room when not in use. The raffia seat is comfortable too. I'm glad I made the purchase. October 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very practical, high-quality piece of furniture. I am very pleased with the Dorchester chair height stool. It was received very quickly and arrived in a sturdy box that protected it from shipping problems. I began using the stool immediately and am very satisfied with its appearance, comfort, and construction. I look forward to using the stool for many years to come. There was really nothing comparable that was available through other catalogs or stores, so I am doubly pleased with the product. October 6, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love the look of the bench I am concerned about the durability of the rush seating. It looks like it might fray in a few areas. I am very interested in your Marseille Cushions, but the color I was considering (green) has sold out. I have been watching your catalog/website for it to return, but it has not. October 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Conveniently placed We love it! The size and color are just as anticipated. Once again, the quality of Ballard's Design are top notch and we will happily have a place to put on our shoes. September 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I expected and more! The bench is everything I expected from Ballard Designs and more. It updated the look of my existing kitchen table. September 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it- perfect size Great for sitting at window watching birds and for extra seating when needed- September 15, 2011
