Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 228 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I purchased this (2 person) bench and looks perfect at the end of our dining table. My children love to sit next to each other on it to eat. Definitely a big hit! Well made and looks wonderful! Was back ordered so it took a little while to arrive but well worth the wait! May 26, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by just what I wanted I love the bench and is just what I expected. I use it in our entrance way to sit on when taking off shoes, but will also use it for extra seating when needed. May 3, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good value for the money! Very sturdy construction and nice look with turned legs. Two things I did not like were that color was darker than shown in the catalog and the rush on the seat could have been twisted tighter. To clarify, the seat was woven fine and did not sag, it was the rush itself that could have been twisted tighter. April 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful and sturdy I bought two single dorchester benches years ago for my craft room and loved them, so when I went to redecorate my guest bedroom I thought the three seater would be perfect for my guests to enjoy. It is so sturdy and more beautiful than it appears to be in the catalog pictures. It is a very classic looking peice and goes with any decor. I'm sure it will be passed down for generations in my family. April 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made This is a really well made, stable piece of furniture. I bought it to put at the foot of the bed in our guest room. Looks good and provides a place to put guest towels as well as a place to sit when you're getting dressed. Excellent purchase. April 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect look I LOVE my new Dorchester bench, it's works wonderfully with my table that I bought from Ballard about two years ago. I'm now saving for a bench cushion and my look will be complete. Susan S. April 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great combination of design, function, and affordability I am very happy with the purchase. Actually it is the second bench purchased (I have the 3-seat bench, as well). I originally bought it for the mud room/back door entry, but put both in our eating nook to replace chairs. With the cushions they are very comfortable. My only disappointment is that the cushion (fabric color & pattern) I purchased for the 3-seat bench is not available for the 2 seat bench, as it seems to have been discontinued. Also, the packing was excellent and both arrived in perfect condition. April 15, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Recommend only for light use This piece looks very nice but we found it too light in construction for daily use. If it's just to be out in a foyer to be used occasionally to sit and put on shoes, etc. then that would be okay. The seat material is the main concern. It needs more support below the hand woven rush. April 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for a back entryway I have a small nook just inside the back entryway of my home, in which the dorchester bench fits perfectly. We use it to sit and put on our shoes, and when we enter the home we take off our shoes there and set them underneath and out of the way. Its perfect for us! Its well made and looks great! April 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by As Always, Great Quality I ordered this bench because it went on sale - which is exactly what many other folks did. It took a while to get here due to the increased demand from the sale - but it was well worth it. I did some searching online and this really is the nicest in this price range. Very solid construction. April 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy, comfortable bench I bought this bench for an entryway, but I also wanted it to serve as extra seating in the living room when we had guests over. This bench is very sturdy, but light enough for one person to carry so we can use it anywhere it is needed. I also purchased the bench cushion which makes the bench a very comfortable place to sit. I love it. April 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This producet looks fabulous in my entryway I really like this bench. It's functional and attractive. It's fits nicely in my craftsman style home, and it gives my kids a place to stop and put on their shoes. I ordered black to macth my staircase, but it's neutral enough to move to just about any room in the house should I decide to do so. My only complaint is that many others must like it too because it took forever to get it! It was on backorder. Then I received a second e-mail stating that it would be even longer. Fortunately that was inaccurate info and I received it when orinially predicted. All in all I'd recommend it! April 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great bench! This bench looks beautiful in my entry way with the buffalo check cushion on it. April 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid bench but a bit messy The bench is really well constructed and looks great with our table. But the grass is REALLY messy--especially at first. It's understandable, but I wonder if a swath of felt or some liner underneath wouldn't have been a good idea. It seems to get better the more you use it and all the loose chaff falls out. I would recommend this piece, regardless. Nice looking bench. April 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I'm excited about my white dorchester bench. It was delivered in excellent condition and I love the look at the end of my bed. Fits well with my decor. Very pleased indeed. March 31, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dorchester Bench This product meets my requirements nicely. A few years ago I bought the Levanto bench and prefer the Levanto rush seating and color over the Dorchester model. The Dorchester seems slightly narrow by comparison and the rush seating pattern is different but overall I endorse this product. March 31, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Black finish is stunning I absolutely love the black rubbed finish dorchester bench (2 seater) with the document fabric cushion. The workmanship is beautiful. The thickness of the cushion is so plush and comfy. Would highly recommend this product. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It has a more expensive look I am very pleased with my Dorchester Bench. It has a more expensive look, fits perfectly in my small bedroom, yet adds extra seating. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the design. The bench meets the superb quality that I've come to expect from Ballard Designs. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by cute bench I was on a mission to find this bench after seeing one in a beach house we rented. Looks great in my daughter's newly redecorated room -- LOVE it! Seems well-constructed, and is a perfect "accessory" for bedroom seating or as a spot for a guest's suitcase. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quaint bench This quaint bench fit perfectly in my dining room in an empty corner that I needed to fill space. Just added a few pillows and instantly had a cozy corner seating area for extra guests ... love it! March 30, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Decent bench for the money. Nice looking bench but the weave is very loose so unsure how well it will hold up with time. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice bench Very sturdy, seems to be well made. Comfortable to sit on, even without a cushion. Nice, versatile piece. March 30, 2011
