Rated 4 out of 5 by Rhody4 Good bang for your buck
I bought these after searching at various stores online. I've had them for about a month and so far am extremely pleased. I really do like having the backs both for myself and for my two young daughters who sit on the stools. I have even strapped on a portable high chair to the stool. I like that they are narrower -- not bulky or overwhelming for the space. I don't have cushions for them (maybe in the future). I haven't experienced any of the "shedding" from the seat that some other reviews reported. Overall, I'm very happy with the quality and price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnnieDarlin Looks great at the island in our kitchen
I ordered 2 of the LeMans counter stools and I think they look great. The one draw back I have is they are so light weight that I worry when our grandkids are sitting on them they may overturn. They really are nice and look fabulous.

These counter stools fit at our kitchen island just perfectly. The Rubbed Cream goes great with our French Country/Shabby Chic decor. Love that they're not too big, bulky nor heavy. Great quality for the price, and comfy, too. Definitely suggest that buyers add felt pads to the bottom of the legs because the plastic scratches wood floors.

I ordered 6 of these for our kitchen, and we love them! They are durable enough for kids, pretty enough for adults, and very versatile. I ordered them in white, and they have performed well on my dark wood floors, without scratching the floor at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lucysmomma Love the style. Very disappointing finish
I received this counter stool in the rubbed creme and was very disappointed in the finish. It was chalky, no shine to it. It seemed more like a primer coat than a final finish. The leg supports were not wrapped in protection for shipping and each one had deep gouges with paint missing. I love the style but the finish was not acceptable.

I bought this counter height chair for my 3 yo old granddaughter so she could sit a the table without using an ugly booster seat. She loves this chair and it looks great at my dining room table. I have also purchased stools from Ballard that I love in my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evergreenmom Attractive, durable stools
We've had two of these stools for I think over 4 years now. We still love them! First had them as kitchen bar stools and now they've ended up with a farmhouse style table that we use for most meals. Our 6 and 3 year-olds are the ones who sit in them, and I'm impressed at how well these stools hold up. We've had these on hard wood floors, tile, and now a sort of river stone. The kids have knocked them over multiple times and I'm amazed the wood doesn't get dinged up (thankfully!). I took the cushions off (we have the same butter colored ones w/ the black stools) and they're still perfectly comfortable for sitting in. Great height and I like that they have a back. The style is also great b/c they're formal enough for nicer spaces but also casual so they can be used for everyday. I would definitely recommend these to anyone.

I have been looking for white kitchen counter stools for ages. The chairs are much more comfortable than the stools we had and they do not come up too high over the kitchen counter. The seat height was just right for our counter.
They are not fussy and the classic French design doesn't distract from the rest of the kitchen or the view.
We all love them and have put them to the test already.
I especially LOVE that they came fully assembled! We just unpacked them and put them to work.
We are thrilled with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Love2share This product looks great and is fairly comfortable to sit on for adults.
My only negative criticism is that this countertop stool is not as sturdy as I would have hoped. It tends to tip when my young grandchildren try to climb up, or even as they climb down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DesignRookie Lightweight. Nice looking. Inexpensive.
I would recommend these stools. I am pleased with their quality and appearance. I ordered 1 first to assess if they would be suitable for my new counter height bar. I then ordered 4 more. We are looking forward to years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frenchflare Exactly what I wanted
I was very pleased with the purchase of my kitchen counter stools. I wanted something that had a country french flare and this fit the bill. The chairs are of good quality and comfortable. Also there was no hassle in ordering on line. The chairs were delivered on time .

Rated 5 out of 5 by SymsFrenchCountry These French Country counter stools are perfect!
My counter stools arrived quickly and wrapped very well, without a nick on them. They are on the small side so I'm glad that I had not purchased cushions for them. Three of them fit well along my kitchen island. The price was also very reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wens Our second set of Lemans stools
We have 4 Lemans stools in our Florida house and we like them so much we bought a couple more for New Hampshire. They are just perfect for a French inspired house in south Florida, but also look outstanding with New England antiques. What else can I say but bravo Ballard Designs!

The carefully packaged stools arrived promptly. They are true to the online photos and description. The quality/sturdiness appears to be very good, but the stools have been in use for only a month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by princess9 Beautiful, inexpensive but too lightweight.
The LeMans counter stool is a beautiful addition to our kitchen. They look very nice and are a terrific price. They are very lightweight, I think a little too lightweight for my taste. Overall, I would have to say for the look and the price, you can't beat them!

The counter stools look exactly as they do in the catalogue. They came in pristine condition, well packaged and arrived quickly. They are comfortable and sturdy. I have a family of five and they are standing up to a lot of use. I did not buy cushions, but I bet I do within a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Turt A very pleasing design
I was very pleased with the three stools that I purchased last month. It took quite some time for me to find a smaller scale counter stool to fit my needs and this one worked perfectly for my kitchen/great room. The rubbed black has a finished, yet soft feeling to it and is a nice contrast with the rush seats.
I feel these stools are a very good value for the price and would recommend them for anyone looking for a smaller scale design at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coastalstyle 4 Lemans barstools in rubbed white. One word: FANTASTIC!
I waited an entire year to see if I really wanted these and finally bit the bullet and ordered them. Got them within 2 weeks, and they are FABULOUS! They are sturdy enough for me and my college son and guests. They are not heavy stools (as everyone notes) and they go with my decor, which is coastal--all white, beige, turquoise. The seats match my light oak wood flooring, and they sit next to a white tile kitchen counter. They came well boxed, and survived a transcontinental mailing without damage. I surfed every chair site on the web for a year, and this was the best value for this style. No regrets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by design72 Beautiful island stools
I saw these stools about a year ago in the catalogue, but continued to shop various stores in my area and online. When I received the catalogue showing them on sale, I decided to order. One of the reasons I waited so long was I wasn't sure what color to buy. Although it shows the brown color wood you can never tell what the true color is without seeing it in person. So I took the chance and ordered. They match my island wood and other furniture in the room perfectly! I can't believe it and so sorry I waited a year to finally order. The quality of the stool and rushed seat is excellent. If you are procrastinating like I did, don't wait. It will be a welcome addition to your kitchen. Love them!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Foxy54321 Disappointing
These chairs were not as substantial as they appeared in the photo. Their frames were "skinny". I would like to return them. I have the boxes but can't find shipping paper. Next time I will remember, "You get what you pay for" and likely purchase a higher end chair. These were the least expensive.
