Rated 5 out of 5 by SuperShopperRuby Definitely met my expectations
I have been looking at these chairs in the catalogue for a long time to go with a small antique chair I already have. They are the perfect size and blend surprisingly well with my chair. I am using them around a mahogany game table. Very nice quality and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Way2Go Stylish folding chair!
I have been purchasing from Ballard Design for many years now and am always happy with their products. The Louis Folding Chair is an example of that quality . Beautiful design, quality craftsmanship- the perfect fold away for our city apartment that can be stored when not in use but beautiful when needed for extra seating at our dining room table when we entertain. I have wanted to purchase these for some time now and am glad I did!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ctmama2 "White" is not white
Ordered the "vintage white" color based on color in photo. This is not white or even cream. It is a yellowy beige. Way too dark for my needs and now I'm stuck with return shipping costs. Much darker than online and catalog photos.

I have had my eye on these chairs for quite a while and finally purchased them. We host a lot of family dinners and events and I was tired of using our old, metal folding chairs. These Louis Folding chairs are beautiful, sturdy & versatile. So happy with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BallardDesignsDevotee Seats Break
These are cute folding chairs, just the right size for my small drop-leaf table. But...the rattan seats break after a few months use. And who wants to return two bulky chairs?

Rated 4 out of 5 by qualityseeker decorative and functional as an extra chair
I use these chairs for guests. They are elegant and sturdy but a bit narrower than I expected. The locking mechanism on a couple of them don't always stay in place but they look very nice and are very functional as extra dining chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaineLovesBallard Perfect extra chairs
I purchased two chairs years ago and just purchased another two. Our family is growing and we needed extra seating. the color and the quality are as good now as the first two. They are comfortable and store easily. I would recommend the cushions for extra comfort when sitting at the dining room table.

This is a great folding chair - small but comfortable and very attractive. I shall save up for some more. Perfect folding chair.

I have been looking for a smaller scale chair that matches my kitchen cupboards, to use at the built-in desk area. The chair color (mahogany), size & style are all perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by remodeler paint comes off
I purchased this brown chair for my son's room, now used mostly as a guest room. It looked great but, after one summer of use at a desk, the paint is wearing off the wicker seat leaving patches of white. Use only for very occasional, very short term, use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dollene Practical yet elegant folding chairs
I first bought two of these folding chairs for extra dining chairs. They are elegant little chairs and fold easily for storage. I just purchased two more- this time not only for extra seating when needed but to have for everyday use- one in the hallway and one to be used at a "vanity" table. They are a great product and well worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by killybug nice, comfortable and pretty
Nice chair and solid too, for it being a folding chair. But I would have preferred to see the metal bolts on the sides covered with a wood plug rather than the silver bolt sticking out...that's my only complaint.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GardenMom3 Seat too small
These chairs are very attractive but the seat portion is unusually narrow. I ordered the cushions with them which might exacerbate the problem since elevates you a bit. The cushions feel a little odd at first, like a temper-pedic feel, but when you settle down they're comfortable. I feel like I'm hanging over edges and I'm probably average-sized (ok about 15 lbs. over-weight#. Not sure whether should send back the chairs #big hassle) or keep them and have the younger folks sit in them. Should have ordered the wider LeMans chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wineyard Elegant look, yet a folding chair.
We ordered 20 of these about 5 years ago and they have held up well. Needed to add 18 more for hosting larger groups. Not really made for a heavy set person, as we had one break from that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TortiCat Just right!
I was looking for a small chair to set next to a small table and this one was just right. Love the cane seat and back. It is well made and sturdy when sitting in it. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rigbyd Excellent value
Ordered a gateleg table and wanted extra chairs that could be easily stored. These fit the bill. Got them in time to use for Christmas dinner and sat in them for 5 hours without cushions, very comfortable. Ordered the hickory - the color is beautiful. Best deal is if you can get free shipping as the shipping cost on these is a bit pricey. Would only be better if they came with storage bags. Note these chairs do not fold completely flat, there is a bit a width to them because of the shape.

The chair is perfect as a second chair in our home office when both my husband and I need to veiw the computer.
It is lovely, folds away for storage when not in use and is even comfortable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AGGTampa Great looking
This is a great looking chair to use every day of for special occasions when you need a few extra seats at the dining table. My only complaint is that the are a bit bulky for storage and easily open if leaning against a wall but overall small price to pay for such a great chair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SunshineAV Like these chairs a lot. my color discontinued though
these are truly the best folding chairs ever and in fact, we leave them up all year round in one room since they are quite sturdy and have held up really well. Ordered 2 years ago in the Fruitwood color which was a good match for our decor, unfortunately, it has been discontinued. Be careful about the colors when viewing online, they do look a bit different in our experience that what is shown (i.e. Mahogany photo online does not look like the mahogany that arrives or the traditional Mahogany you'd expect).

I was looking for a small but comfortable wood folding chair for a petite desk I have. It is the perfect size and the wood blends great with my desk. Good quality!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Saltydog Attractive, wish they were a little bigger.
Wish they were a little bigger. Also, when closed they tend to partially unfold which makes storage more of a challenge. Bought the covers which helped. They are attractive, look nice with my dining room table, & are comfortable for average size person. Price is reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LagunaGal blends well with "real" dining room chairs
Ordered 8 chairs to have enough seating for a holiday dinner and have been really pleased with them. Our dining room chairs are French-style wood and these look so nice with them that I've been leaving two of them set up at the table. They are quite well-made and nicely finished and are comfortable (I purchased the matching cushions). The only downside, for me at least, is that they take up a fair amount of room when folded--they don't fold very flat--especially when folded with the cushion attached. Overall, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrenchLove Best folding chairs ever!
The 4 Louis folding chairs are great. They are small and light enough to store easily and do not take up a lot of room at a crowded dinner table. The appearance is lovely--the design blends in with my other larger French Country chairs. I recently made chair pads for them using your foam fillers. I used my French Pierre Deux toile fabric and they are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by goodchoice27 this chair is sturdy, folds easily.
This chair looks good and not at all like a folding dining chair. It stores well and is not tippy, so is safe for children at the table. I am happy with this chair and all my purchases from Ballard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by terrygirl Real wood, wicker and vintage white color is great!
I love the vintage look. The color is great - vintage white. I live in a very small efficiency and needed something to "define" the bedroom area and the living room area.
This chair does it perfectly without weighing the room down. My cat also loves sleeping in it! :)
It is very comfortable and looks great.
Thanks for such a great product. Wicker is soooo summery looking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gardendweller Beautiful chair, would NOT recommend it.
Purchased six of these to use for holiday, party, and general celebrations where you want something attractive and reasonably sturdy. One by one as they were used the rollers that facilitate opening and closing would drop off. It was impossible to get the rollers back in. The chairs are useless without them rendering the chairs throw-aways.
A little pricey for disposable chairs!
