Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds character to my kitchen The bar side of my island goes down to table height instead of up to bar height. My husband had to cut the legs of the "make-do" stools I had. When I saw these offered at "chair height" with rush seats and leg detail I knew I had to have them. They add character to my kitchen and I love that I can use them at the table when we have a lot of friends in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stool! I had been eyeing these stools for quite some time. Was quite amazed when I actually received them. They came very well-packaged with no assembly required. They are beautiful stools and very comfortable and durable. I bought them to go at a small desk area we have in our kitchen. My kids love them and tote them around the kitchen. They prefer to sit on them at the table rather than our regular table chairs. If I can find someone to purchase my counter stools, I would love to swap them for similar counter stools!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stool is perfect as a small coffee table This stool is a pretty antique white, and goes with everything in the room. I use it as a small coffee table by the couch in the computer room. It is the perfect height for a cup and the newspaper. I love that it looks contemporary yet classical. Very well made and sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic look We used three of the single seat in our den (rubbed cream). We chose them because we could sit three together along the wall under the window for a long bench, use them individually for extra seating, foot rest, or side table, and slip one under the desk when we need to do office work. Love the classic rush seat, and the fact that we can change the look/feel by adding a cushion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great in Italian kitchen I have a small eat-table against the wall in my kitchen and got these stools for it. The kitchen is very Italian feeling, and although these chairs are French style they are perfect in my kitchen. The rush seats are comfortable, and the foot rests are handy. I have received many compliments on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chair stool is perfect! We recently refurbished the kitchen in our vacation home. Part of the cabinetry has a built-in desk. We purchased the chair height stool to be used as seating for the kitchen desk - and it's perfect! We love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Dorchester stool! Just received the Dorchester stool in the mail, it's perfect! Well packaged, well made, it is ideal for a vanity area in my guest bathroom. Ordered this stool in Jan and was informed it was on back order, then it was cancelled. Last week I received a shipping notification of delivery. Sure glad I waited!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking and well made. This stool is attractive and sturdy. It looks very nice in my guest room with a small writing desk I am using as a night stand. The stool fits easily underneath, and makes the desk a dual purpose piece of furniture in a small room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Stools These stools are beautiful and so well constructed I couldn't be more pleased. The light bounces off the rush with a confidence of texture. I ordered the aged moss finish and it has garnered several compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking, well-priced, good craftsmanship I was looking for extra seating for my cream-colored bistro set, and I selected the cream chair-height stool. As always, Ballard products arrive carefully wrapped and in perfect condition. The stool blended beautifully with my decor, and is a handsome addition to my French-style kitchen alcove. The size is just right and the stool itself is quite comfortable. Good looking, well-priced and since it slides right under the table, it doesn't take up a lot of space. I'm delighted.
