Dorchester 3-Seat Bench is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 230.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bench! This bench is a great price and looks wonderful in my entryway. I get compliments on it all the time! I especially love that I can change out the main cushion to suit the seasons and holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mud Room Bench I recently purchased the 2 seat version in "Rubbed Black" along with the grey checkered cushion for my mud room. The bench came already assembled and was a perfect fit for the mud room. My husband is a big man, 6'4" and 220 pounds- the bench has no problem holding him- it is very sturdy! I added black baskets under the bench to hold our gloves, hats, and mittens. Over all I am VERY pleased with the quality, color, and sturdiness of the bench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile 2-seat bench with Farmhouse cushion Love this bench because of the versatility it has to offer. Originally, I bought it to serve as a coffee table with the Baldwin Apartment Sofa located in our SWFL den. I decided to buy the Farmhouse 2 seat cushion in order to move the bench into our dining room to increase the seating to 8. I couldn't say enough about this piece of furniture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's just what I needed. I put this bench at the end of my bed to hold decorative pillows at night. In the daytime, it is a great place to sit down and put on pants or shoes. It looks nice...casual and elegant at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Well Made Got my Dorchester 3-Seat bench in preparation for the upcoming holidays. I live in a smaller house and I need for most of my furniture pieces to serve multiple purposes. This bench was bought as seating for a farm-style dining table and it will also serve as guest seating in my living room. And when not needed for either purpose, I will park it under a south facing window for a plant bench. Even though it is very sturdy, it is light enough for me to move it from room to room very easily. I didn't purchase the cushion as I like the texture of the rush seating. Love.It.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a lovely bench, strong and well made I purchased this bench to place at the foot of my queen size bed, it looks great. Size is perfect, the 3 seater. I also have the 2 seater which is in my entry way and it looks great there. I love the Farmhouse cushions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 seat Dorchester bench It arrived today and I am so pleased. I needed a sweet bench to place at the end of black and brass Victorian bed, which is quite ornate, so this Dorchester bench was perfect. I got the black one. The only thing that might have been a bit disappointing was the rushing, because I was hoping it was a stronger tighter weave, because the center of it might not be that sturdy and without some protection might fray or unravel, but I plan on ordering the farm house cushion in black plaid because IMHO, it's a must for this bench. My little dog will surely enjoy it. It was amazing that it arrived all in one piece. I didn't have to screw on any legs or anything. Very nice French look to it. I would recommend it to anyone. The price was great. But definitely order you a cushion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great purchase from Ballard Designs I purchased the 3 seat bench with the hickory finish. The bench is as pictured. It is the perfect bench for a narrow entryway that gets a lot of use. The rushed seat is attractive and durable. I purchased the counter stools 5 years ago and the have held up extremely well. I highly recommend this bench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2011-03-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality - well made - comfortable I bought a two-seat rubbed cream for a pass-way from my kitchen to my den - as extra seating, a place to drop bags and mail, an extra seat that could be pulled anywhere in the house. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and the comfort of the bench - it is a good depth and well made. The cream worked nicely with cabinet accents in my kitchen. So, I ordered a rubbed gray 3-seater for my laundry room. I had been searching for a solution there for years - and looking at various very expensive cabinet combinations - but after seeing (and sitting on) the 2-seater I bought - I opted for the 3 seater and hung a shelf/cubby/hook combination cabinet above it. It is awesome. THEN I needed a luggage rack for my guest room - but came up with the idea of putting a 2-seater (hickory brown) under the window in that room - and it's super nice - allows guest the flexibility to use as a seat or a luggage rack or a place where I can stack an extra blanker or two or some books. The guest room is really a 'craftsman' style of furniture - but the style of the bench works great - my style is a harmonious blend of all styles, I guess. Would highly recommend this product. Be sure to measure your length and depth available as these are generous benches!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look, quality! Love it! Perfect at our kitchen table. It's a good height. We ordered the distressed white 2-seater and it's great. The rush seat does shed a little 'dust' on the floor but no big deal yet. I thought it was a good value. Easy to remove from box, it's all assembled and ready to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bench I would recommend this bench. It came packaged with no dents or scratches. I was impressed with the price and quality. It is sturdy to sit on and not wobbly. I recommend this bench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality This is the perfect height to pull up to our kitchen table for extra seating. Great quality, excellent shipping time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, strong and sturdy The bench is actually a little larger than I originally thought, which turned out to be a good thing. It's not flimsy at all, very strong and sturdy. It's a fantastic value for the size, quality and appeal.
Date published: 2012-03-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2011-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size and features I purchased the Dorchester 2 seat bench for dual duty, to be used as a coffee table, and extra seating. The surface isn't quite level, so I'm using a tray to hold glasses, etc. The tray actually adds a special touch. Perfect size, love it!
Date published: 2012-10-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Perfection I bought this bench to put at the end of my full sized bed and it is just right. I simply could not have found anything more perfectly suited to the space. It is perfect!
