Rated 5 out of 5 by condomab Perfect for my purpose
I have never received an item from any site that was packed so beautifully! Cushioned and protected - and fully assembled to boot. The size is perfect for my small counter-height table in the kitchen corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VickieK Love the barstool
Just enough country but still refined looking. I went into the store & they had to order it for me, but this way I got FREE shipping! Came right on time, NO issues, exactly as ordered. I'm short, so the extra wrung on the side helps me get on the barstool. Very well made. I really love the service at the store - GREAT folks. Don't have one single recommendation on anything they need to change. THANKS Ballard Design!

Rated 3 out of 5 by annieapple Nice looking barstools
While I'm pleased with the look of these barstools, it's disappointing that all four of them wobble. We put felt pads under the legs to try to correct this, but the stools still rocked back and forth. Due to the narrow design, I feel like I should gingerly sit on the seats and then not move to avoid rocking. The wood has few imperfections -- one chair has a gouge on the top curve. It is not too noticeable in black.
The rush seats are well made and look very nice. The seats are comfortable, and I think adding chair pads would prolong their life. Wish the price was lower.
I'm sending these four back and hope for more steady stools as they go so well in my new home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by justmovedin The bar stool is well made and reasonably priced.
The LeMans bar stool fit my decor perfectly. It has a very nice wood finish, and I particularly like the rush seat. The product is well made and reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by twinmomhlc Love them!
I purchased both counter and bar stools for my island and bar in my kitchen. The stools are the perfect size and look absolutely gorgeous! I purchased the rubbed white color. The price is fabulous and I like how these stools are not overly heavy or bulky. They are great for both adults and kids. I have three crazy boys and they are holding up well to their daily use. I recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OmiHKG27 Comfortable, attractive, sturdy
I ordered these for the bar in my kitchen area because I wanted stools that aren't too big yet are easy to use. These fit the bill. I ordered the cream which goes well with my quartz counter, and they aren't so tall as to be very obvious. They blend in well and are comfortable. Some reviews called them lightweight, but I don't think so. They have some weight and don't tip over easily, at least for us. I am very pleased with them.

These are replacements for stools that have been in our kitchen for 15 years. Tho' a bit smaller than we anticipated, we love the lower profile. Our adult children have declared them very comfortable. The aged moss color is a really pretty unobtrusive light green. The stools arrived in perfect condition. We are very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by person Pleased with the bar stools
We are very pleased with our LeMans bar stools.They arrived quickly and were packed very safely. They are comfortable and attractive. Ours are cream colored, and we expected a bit more of a distressed look, but that's not a big deal.
They look great, and I would purchase them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tudycutey Great addition to our sit down bar!
We recently ordered some bar height chairs for our
granite bar connection to our kitchen/dining area.
We didn't expect to get them as fast as we did -- and
the UPS delivery man insisted on seeing them before he
left -- he said they were really packed well! We agree!
And now we have people sit comfortably to chat while
we prepare in the kitchen. Great addition!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michiganfan terrific, lightweight sturdy stools
The stools are perfect for the high breakfast bar in the kitchen. Some reviews mentioned tipping, but there've been no challenges with that. The stools are sturdy, the seats are comfortable and the chairs slide easily (although I did add pads to the bottoms). Only complaint - and it's a small one - is that one of the factory slider on one leg of one stool has already fallen off. A sturdier attachment might be recommended. It did push right back on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Schleppenheimer Terrific product for the price
We have now lived with our two LeMans Barstools for a few weeks, and I LOVE them. As others have discussed in previous posts, they are not the most solid barstools. But, they are perfectly adequate for our needs, and that includes a man who is 250+ lbs. sitting on them!!! My teenagers love them, and I love having other people in the kitchen with me while I'm cooking -- these barstools encourage that kind of behavior!!! Also, the looks of the barstools is expensive and classic. I like them so much, I will probably buy a third barstool
when I get the chance. We have lived in our house almost 12 years without purchasing stools, and now that we have, I wish that I had bought them 12 years ago! Very happy with our purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AmericaninParis7 Live up to my expectations and budget.
Received my LeMans Barstools a little over a month ago. They are perfect for the Country French theme of my home. The scalloped latter backs and the rush seats lend that touch of authenticity to the design. This is the first time that I have purchased furniture sight unseen and Ballard Designs has made me a believer. At the moment I am looking at a few more of their pieces to compliment my home. Two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunnyBrite These chairs are simply perfect!
I've had these chairs as part of my inspiration room portfolio for quite a while and I'm thrilled to finally have them in my home. The chairs add just the "look" I was going for in my new home. Just the right size, the right color and comfortable as well. I waited for them for several months as a backorder but the end result was worth the wait. A perfect touch to my dining area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SixOaks Sadly, I have to report that this is not a good product.
I ordered four of these chairs this week. I only took two of them out of their boxes. I was really disappointed to find that both of them had one uneven leg. When we sat on either chair, we would teeter back-and-forth on a diagonal. I dislike the hassle and cost of returning things, so I thought I could correct the issue by placing something under the shorter leg. The chair was definitely less problematic that way, but when we got down off the chair, it would slightly tip tip forward if we weren't very careful. I found the chairs to be impractical.
If it was only one of the four chairs that had the problem, I may have been more understanding, but I tested two out of the four and both were bad. Plus, for all I know, all four may have been defective. Maybe I just received a bad batch.
As an aside, the quality of the wood wasn't great either, but if the chairs didn't have the teetering and tipping issues, I think the quality is totally acceptable for the price.
I have decided to pay double the price for new chairs, but I will only get two instead of four.

My husband & I have been looking for bar stools for our vacation home..we've bought & returned a few sets from other stores. We purchased these in white, transported them from NY to SC & couldn't be happier with them! Great quality, durability and look-you won't be sorry if you buy them!

It was much whiter and not as rubbed as I expected. I had purchased similar chairs. The frame was a little different but thought the color would be the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Provencegirl2 Chairs add a nice flair
I am very happy with the chairs as they deliver what they promised: a stylish, solid chair that is very comfortable even without cushions. I like the style of the scalloped back and cross-supports. I had to balance them with chair pads because they rocked a little but it could also be our floor. Overall, they were a very good purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tweedledee Smaller than I expected
These are cute barstools, but are smaller than expected. Pay no attention to the seat dimensions listed - they are way off! The seat is only 14 inches deep and 14-16 inches wide (wider in the front, obviously). They also wobble when my 200 lb. husband sits on them. I am happy with the look of the barstools, but they are a bit flimsy and smaller than Ballard describes, hence the 3 stars. If you want a sturdy stool that will hold up to heavy use, you may want to bump up to a more expensive stool. If these will only get light use (by light weight people), go for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jbh1 Nice style and design
A little disapointed in the "quality" of the wood, not a very sturdy or very strong wood. Color and stain are great. Bought the recommended chair pad to go with it and within a week lost one of the buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyGranny Perfect in every way!
We love our new bar stools! They are the perfect size to have 4 instead of the usual 3, since the seats are not huge. The color was accurate to the catalog and website, and the rush seats blend well with the rest of our decor. Shipping was quick and they were packed so well we had a little trouble getting them out of the individual boxes. We have NEVER seen anything packed so well!
They are perfect in every way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mrsmoose Very nice for the price!
I searched extensively for black rush seat french styled stools to go in our newly renovated kitchen, and these were the only ones that fit style, price AND quality. We purchases 3 and they came very quickly and fully assembled (and in this price point they should but its amazing how many chairs come RTA, even at a higher price!), packed EXTREMELY well, and are made very very well....lovely finish with some rubbed walnut accents; the rush seats are very thick and seem durable, which is a big plus b/c I have 2 young boys. The only drawback I didn't forsee is that because they are narrower chairs, when my boys climb up to sit in them, they tip over fairly easily. Despite that I give them 5 Stars b/c as my boys grow older that won't be an issue and they are very comfy to sit in and look absolutely perfect in my kitchen!
