Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colors and wonderful quality I am quite jpleased with my pillows; we use them in the dinette area for support on the chairs and extra color. Thanks for a great product. Will be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product & value So happy with my pillows! And the price point was an added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, fast shipping! These pillows are wonderful! Both the inserts and covers are high quality - and free monogramming is such a treat! I was so delighted with these pillows that I've purchased more - would definitely recommend to others. Note, these are very soft - they'll stand up in their own for decorative purposes, but won't provide a lot of support (which is expected for down/down alternative pillow, just a note for those who may not think about it!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great quality Excellent quality- monogramming came in a variety of colors and fonts. Would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable! I copied a personalized pillow from a recent catalog - and gave HOHOHO pillows to 5 of my dearest friends. All different fabrics and thread colors - they were adorable! And it goes without saying, also with Ballard's amazing quality...I need to order another one for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality pillow Purchased 2 of the linen pillows in blue-looks expensive and are well made. Don't hesitate to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect color I was looking for a not too big pillow for both color and support to place on a patterned chair. The Latte velvet is just right and the monogram adds a distinctive look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pillows I bought these pillows and mongrammed covers for two Adirondack chairs on my cottage porch. They look more expensive than they are, the color is a true navy blue and they provide just the right amount of lumbar support - they're perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and comfortable I bought two of these pillows and had them monogrammed. The pillows are soft and the fabric beautiful. The monograms were perfect. I am very pleased wtih these pillows, and will probably buy more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect priced pillow I ordered 2 of the pillows in the chocolate burlap with the white initials to put in my dining room arm chairs-perfect fit. I also received one of these from a friend(who knows I love anything Ballard), again in chocolate burlap with a blue initial for our bedroom. I may order more for gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid with initials embroidered on pilow looks great on sofa with other pillows. (Love seeing my initials everyday) As always Ballards' merchandise is of high quality...I'm NEVER disappointed. My only problem is that I want to order more!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Pillow These are great quality pillows at a very affordable price. The monogramming is well done and adds to the beauty of the pillow. Would highly recommend. They were also shipped out very fast. Thank you Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatility !! Very pleased with the look and quality of essential pillows I ordered. They allow a custom look by adding other pieces in the same fabric, without a custom price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pillow, great value These are great pillows! The monogramming is a bonus and looks fabulous. Great value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful--- Looks hand tailored I am very pleased with the Essential pillow, which I ordered in a sand colored twill material. The color and feel of the material are wonderful & I am very pleased with the down-blend insert, which is soft, but can be plumped up. The insert does not have the unpleasant smell that some inferior down-blend inserts have. The price is very reasonable, especially given the superior quality. My only disappointment is that they don't carry it in a 16" X 16" size. I will definitely purchase more of these pillows!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Finishing Touch! I purchased this pillow in the natural burlap and had it monogrammed in cream. It is the perfect finishing touch in a room that is accented with various burlap items (lamp shades, 2 other Ballard toss pillows...Ballard Burlap Shower Curtain in the adjoining bath). Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designer Look in this 12x20 pillow! I ordered this pillow in black check with our monogram. I absolutely love the quality of the fabric, the finish and the monogram is done perfectly. It looks like a much more expensive pillow than $26.00. I have ordered the same black check fabric in the table skirt, for my Ballard round table. Can't wait to get it~ Love Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Custom look ballard pillows in essential fabrics are the best kept secret--the look of custom made at a little price. The sage check pillows look fantastic in my breakfast nook!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and quality. These pillows are awesome. The velvet is soft. The down insert is cushy. I was surprised at how nice they are for the price. Had them in just a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fabric. Great service! Very nice pillows at a great price. Delivery was very prompt.
Date published: 2013-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made; great value I bought 8 of these as gifts for couples, with their first initial on either side of the first initial of their last name. I got linen embroidered in off-white, and they are very attractive. These go with almost any decor, and are great under your head watching TV, as a lumbar pillow.
Date published: 2014-12-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful gift I bought this pillow as a gift and it was a huge hit. For me, the appeal was that monogramming was free and the pillow insert was included. I was looking for a light gray and the spa linen was the closest match, but it has more green in it than I was expecting. Still, the recipient was so thrilled with the pillow and said she would gift this to others as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty and affordable. I love to change my pillow covers from time to time to freshen up the room or for a change of season. Ballard has great pillow covers and pillow inserts at a reasonable price.
Date published: 2011-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color! The pillow is a good color and good size for my chair.
Date published: 2013-06-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved the monogramming on the Burlap. The pillows were great but the pillow forms were very understuffed causing the pillow cover to look loose on the insert. Did return the pillow inserts.
