Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase Strong, well made counter stool. No assembly needed. October 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by rush seat stools The 2 stools arrived as promised...they are very sturdy and well constructed I am an Interior Designer and these stool fit my design perfectly August 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The quality for price is excellent! Atger searching for the appropriate counter stools for our great room, we found that these stools were perfect. The seat area is most appropriate for all ages. Our Grandchildren use them often without fear of tipping over and adults find the seat size very comfortable. We're very pleased with the quality and style for the price. July 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for the price I love these stools. They are sturdy, comfortable and look great! I got the rubbed black finish. It is a nice finish- not too "worn" looking, and the counter height is good for an adult to sit up to our kitchen island. June 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the stools We are really pleased with these stools. They are the right height and the color is just as we expected. I like the design on the legs which makes it unique from similar types of stools March 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! These stools are perfect for my island and the cushions are substantial and add a few inches to the height, which is really nice. The cushions are a bit pricey, but well worth it!! March 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Such a classy looking stool I searched high and low for a stool that has this same look. Went to my mail box and a issue of Ballard Design arrived I opened it and I could not believe I saw this stool! Ordered it and when it came it was better looking than I had expected and the quality is great. They fit under my island just perfect:) March 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Dorchester Line!!! I originally purchased the Dorchester 3-seater bench and was so pleased that I came back for 4 matching counter stools. Not only are these items made well but they are surprisingly affordable. I purchased all in the black finish and paired it with the Toffee Check Farmhouse Cushions. A perfect addition to my French Country home decor. I am impressed with not only the Dorchester products but with everything I've purchased from Ballard Designs over the years. Thank you for offering such high quality merchandise at such a reasonable price. March 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by English country style The stools are perfect with my English Country style and antique wood finish. They were just the solution for the low profile I wanted. And because of the size I was able to fit 4 where I used to have 3 large counter stools. January 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfortable, fits nicely under counter goes well with le mans dining chairs and sydney table December 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfortable and constructed well My counter stool came earlier than I expected. It was in good condition with no packing issues. I made my own cushion to match the kitchen so it fits right in and all that have seen it love it. I have recommended this stool and would purchase again if the need came up December 3, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Does Not Hold Up We really wanted to like these stools for our new kitchen. Immediately all four sides of the stool kept coming apart. My husband ended up needing to drill screws into all three stools just to reinforce them. They still wobble, but at least they don't come apart anymore. The straw top is disintegrating. We are sorry we did not return them. We will now be ordering new stools. October 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a beautiful product These are substantial stools, that don't look heavy and cumbersome. The seat is plenty generous to make anybody feel comfortable sitting. In addition, these stools come fully assembled. September 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I was looking for! This cute stool was the perfect height and size for the small area I needed it for. It appears to be well made and the design and color work perfectly. I am very pleased with this purchase. August 26, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by If you order this, order all you will need at the same time Overall, I loved these stools. My only problem was that I ordered the first two and then decided I wanted two more the following year. By that time, the stools didn't exactly match in color as they were from a different batch. Even though I ordered the same color as the first time, there is a definite difference in the color of the rush seats and the color of the paint finish. Also, the new ones do not have the small round "tab" at the top of the legs as my first two did. Oh well! The quality is pretty good though, although I think they are a bit pricey. August 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable, pretty, nice quality I purchased three of these to use at my island in the kitchen. We've had them for about 6 months now and they're still sturdy and comfortable. The stools are beautiful and the size of the seat is bigger than other rush stools you'll find out there, which was a big plus. The rush seats shed quite a bit for the first two months so I had to clean up under them quite a bit, but that's not a problem anymore. I'd highly recommend them! August 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product....old world charm I love these chairs. I purchased two of the stools for my newly remodeled kitchen. They look great. The seat is larger than other styles I reviewed. Very comfortable for a backless stool. The quality is great for the price. July 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than Expected! I am extremely happy with how sturdy these stools are. The seat is roomy, and I do not have to worry about my four year-old tipping the stool over when he climbs on and off. Perfect Purchase for our home! July 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Counter Stools We love these stools as they are nice looking and we have found them to be very comfortable as well! June 17, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not great quality I have had this product for over a year and these stools are starting to fall apart. The woven rush seat, although very good looking, is starting to fall apart. I have to sweep the falling woven rush off the floor everytime someone sits on it. Would not recommend for everyday use. April 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome stools I love these stools! They are really great. The height is perfect and the width of the seat is just right too. They look great in my kitchen because they are understated and blend right in without overwhelming. I highly recommend. April 13, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the cane seats! The stools are great for under my counter, comfortable and look really nice ! The black legs match the other black accents in my kitchen, pulling everything together. April 7, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Stool for the Kitchen Overall, these stools are great. They're comfortable and quality seems to be good. I've had them for about 6 months and my one biggest complaint is that the seat material sheds and makes quite a mess on the floor after someone has been sitting it in. I'm not sure if that's normal for the type of material. Also, the feet protectors are a hard plastic, which will still scratch hardwood floors. March 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product for the money...have had many compliments...especially on the unique color... I was hesitant ordering without previewing the item for my antique kitchen. The bar stools arrived withing a week and turned out to be exactly as described in the catalog. Great product for the money.. have had interior designer friends compliment the color and their uniqueness. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them, they look better in real life than in the catalog. Perfect height for an island, and very sturdy for children. The counter stools seem to be made very well, and great price. Looks great in the kitchen, and the color was exactly as stated in the catalog. Extremely comfortable to sit in. March 16, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Stools I love my new kitchen stools. They look great, are very sturdy and have a very comfortable seat. The only reason why I didn't rate them a 5 is because the rushed seat could be a little tighter. I'm wondering how long they will last because I can put my fingers between the pieces of rope and move them. I just think it should be a little bit more compact. I am planning to buy cushions in order to protect the seats and increase the life of the stools. Of course that will cost me another two hundred dollars. In spite of this I am happy with my purchase. March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by These barstools have warm, French country character! I searched high and low to find barstools that reflected the warmth of my French country farmhouse style home, and these are perfect for my space. I have created additional seating with them and they blend in as if they have been there for years. The seat size is very comfortable and the paint finish seems durable. I'm so happy to have found another treasure from Ballard Designs! March 16, 2011
