Dorchester 3-Seat Bench is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 230.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from this product is lovely I am very happy with the dorchester two-seat bench. It looks adorable in my dining room. I would recommend it to anyone. I have had several compliments on this piece.
Date published: 2014-03-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is well made and fits perfects! I added this bench instead of the two chairs I have for the table to give me more space. It was hard to find the rush bench seat in a smaller than average size bench. KMM Potomac, Md.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for a good price! I like how the Dorchester two-seater bench looks at the end of my bed. It seems to be well made and sturdy; now I have a place to sit while I'm putting on shoes. It is also big enough to hold extra bedding and pillows while we are sleeping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1 seat great seat! I love the 1 seat benches I bought.....we loved the two so much I tried to purchase the dorchester counter stools to match and went through 3 different shipments trying to get 2 quality stools! One stool wasn't even wrapped in the box! Terrible quality control on the stools. Needless to say we didn't get the stools! Can not recommend this company because of that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice simple bench with clean lines I will use this at the shore in a small bedroom with built in closets and white furniture. It is a great addition
Date published: 2016-01-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2011-05-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2011-07-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking, great price This bench works perfectly for the foot of our bed and it was a great price. My only gripe is that the rattan makes a bit of a mess with the residue that comes off of it. Otherwise perfect.
Date published: 2011-03-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, good-looking bench. I had a lot of patient help from the Ballard ordering department when I made this purchase, as I was trying to match the color of a similar bench I'd bought from Ballard several years ago, which required some research on their part. Thanks for the help, Ballard; I'm very pleased with my purchase. The bench looks great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile piece Sturdy quality bench construction - only exception is that it is not uniformly stained on the underside of the rungs... (something I can remedy... but why should "I" have too?). Bench is functional & adaptable to various decor styles.
Date published: 2012-04-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made bench and cushion. Nice color designs. Very nice bench with a comfortable tie-on cushion. The cushion needs more tie-ons in the center, not just the four corners, because the center of the cushion moves back as you sit on it and doesn't return.
Date published: 2013-03-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple & Makes a Statement My Dorchester bench came packaged very well and arrived in good condition due to a good job on the packaging. I love the simple yet statement that it sets for our master bedroom. However I do want to find a seatng cushion for it to pop but I will most likely have to purchase fabric and make my own as I am not able to locate that special item that I am wanting for this.
Date published: 2014-01-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has a great look I love the look of this bench at my kitchen table......however, after 6 months the rushing dried out and began to fall apart. I had to sweep the kitchen floor under the bench every time someone sat on it. I wish the rushing had some kind of sealant on it for durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kids love it My 3 children love this bench which I am using at my kitchen table. It slides neatly under my 80 year old antique, 5 leg table. I am going to order the matching seat cover for it this week. I am also considering ordering 1 more. I bought this one to use because we are using all leaves in the table now and 1 of my 6 chairs broke. I have had it about a month. One negative I have observed is that with 3 children seated on it, some fibers from the woven seat were underneath it on the floor. I am hoping this is a short term, new issue and will not be a problem over time. I ordered this in brown, it is really pretty.
Date published: 2012-12-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2011-07-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm very pleased with the bench. Looks great! The bench looks just like the picture and it perfect for my entry way. I was disappointed that it was not shipped when initially promised. However; customer service was prompt to let me know that it was delayed and the rest went smoothly.
Date published: 2012-03-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this product Have only had this for a short time but it seems to be very sturdy and durable. It was packaged well and looked exactly like I hoped it would. We actually use it to sit on and I was worried if it would hold up. It has met all of my expectations so far. Great product.
Date published: 2014-01-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the look. And it' comfortable seat. Love the look. Added to our existing table. Finishes the look.
Date published: 2014-02-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Dorchester bench is just the right size for my entry hall. Two seats--comfortable, and easy to move elsewhere for extra seating. Nice first impression!
Date published: 2012-10-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from french country bench I purchased 3 benches. They are pretty and functional and look great with my casual kitchen table. I wish they were about 1" - 2" smaller as they are a bit wide.
Date published: 2014-07-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with selection The three seat bench in cream is perfect for my breakfast room table. The slightly distressed finish matches my existing Ethan Allen table. Quality is very good for the price. Only drawback is that the rattan seat is scratchy so my kids need to wear long pants.
Date published: 2012-12-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase Exactly as advertised. Arrived in excellent condition, packaged well and fits nicely in our beach home.
Date published: 2014-07-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great design for the money The rush is a little rough and can snag. Atop clear flat finish would be nice for those who do not want a cushion
Date published: 2011-03-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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?
Date published: 2011-07-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
