Rated 5 out of 5 by paulad So many comments
I have received so many positive comments about our new counterstools. My husband and I now eat dinner at the kitchen counter! So comfy and good looking. Just worried about the light color. I keep meaning to scotchgard or put some type of protective finish on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kinross1 This is a comfortable, great-looking stool.
We love these stools. They are very comfortable and work great at our kitchen island. They are a great buy, too. I researched this thoroughly before buying these, and I think they are a high-quality value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by N8tive Very happy with quality and construction
I ordered four counter stools in a fabric that has a large oversized pattern. Each stool was upholstered with the pattern placed exactly as was appropriate. Each stool came separately packaged with no damage. I would absolutely recommend these stools.

I am very pleased with our new counter stools for our remodeled kitchen. The swivel feature is very useful to allow easy access. And the upholstery in a herringbone gray is beautiful.

My new Marcello counter stools came yesterday 2 weeks sooner than promised. I was very nervous about making such a big purchase of furniture sight unseen. But they looked like they were exactly what I wanted in the catalog and to my delight they are! I ordered them in the Ellie fabric and it is a nice nubby upholstery fabric. The background is more taupe than grey which makes me very happy. Yay! I love it when things work out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tryingtowork Great solid stool with some wieght so hard to tip!
The stools are wonderful. They are heavy so they wont tip and with the moving seat easy to get in and out of. Metal foot plate hits in the correct spot. They are so confortable! Love this purchase!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PerfectBarstools Stunning Chairs
Chairs are stunning with the Haviland Grey Upholstery and Black base. We were disappointed that the legs were scratched and underneath the chair the upholstery had slits in the material. We are not sure if the slits were there due to the mechanics being able to work properly. I called customer service and they gave us 3 options to resolve. In the end we were satisfied. Thank you for offering such a quality unique barstool.

The three barstools arrive well packaged with no damage. They swivel easily and are well made. The cushions are a little firmer than expected, but may soften with use. Overall a very nice product for the price.

Sent my fabric in and they did an awesome job. I had to wait 3 months but so worth the wait. They are the showstopper at the island.

I ordered 3 of these counter stools with COM. Ballard makes the process very easy to use my own fabric. I chose the black finish for the legs and pewter nailheads. They were very nicely upholstered and wrapped for shipping. We find them extremely comfortable. The foam is a bit on the firm side, but still very comfortable. We could not be more pleased with the decision to order these! They swivel just the right amount for ease to get off of the counter stool.

After searching for almost six months to find counter stools, I came across the Marcello. It is very well made and the metal foot rest will save it from getting scuffed. There are so many different fabrics to choose from. They were delivered earlier than the four to six week promise. There was nothing to put together! It was all there and has made a wonderful addition to my new home! Thank you Ballard for offering this beautiful chair.

I absolutely love this stool. I got 5 of them for my island in a stripe pattern. I'm really impressed that all the stripes match (i.e. starts with the same spot on the pattern in each chair). They are extremely comfortable and cozy which is exactly what I wanted. Everyone has commented on their comfort and styling. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that Ballard does not give samples of the wooden legs - I hope this will change. The legs were not the color I expected at all from the pics, but they are growing on me. All the other positives, far outweigh the leg color.

I love that you can customize these barstools with different fabrics/colors to suit your design needs. Overall the barstool is very nice and well constructed. The seat is comfortable and the swivel feature is a bonus! Great value and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlotteTransplant fabulous counter stools!
My husband and I have been wanting new counter stools, but couldn't find anything we both liked until we checked out Ballard Designs. These are definitely more money, and we waited for a coupon before ordering. But we were able to check different fabric samples before we decided on what we liked best. The stools arrived in great condition and all we had to do was pull them out of the box and start using them. They are comfortable, look great and the swivel is a nice touch. Now we just need to decide if we are going to order 2 more or order the matching bench instead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by eeee This is an excellent product
This counter stool is solid and sturdy. It looks great and is very comfortable. The metal foot rest guard is a great feature. Be sure to consider the space available for this stool, as it is wide. It is a square swivel stool so when you turn the seat, it becomes even wider. You need to allow some extra space between the stools to allow for the swivel action. I highly recommend this stool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newby absolutely perfect, well made,
stools are just what I wanted- clean, sophisticate lines, very well upholstered, sturdy, well made. couldn't be happier. Always a concern when it cannot be "tested" before buying, but I was very happy with the purchase- I am new client to Ballard but wpuldn't hesitate on quality in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loveafind More than expected
Beautiful chairs! Anxious and apprehensive about ordering online, product sight unseen. With fingers crossed, we received 4 counter stools exceptionally wrapped and delivered. Excellent quality!! Definitely worth the price (which I was also anxious about). Love Ballard and their products! We have purchased many items in the past, and all have exceeded our expectations! Looking forward to adding some kitchen chairs to match these beautiful stools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rnewkitchen Comfortable and stunning!
I recently purchased four Marcello Counter stools. I sent my own fabric with specific instructions for pattern placement. While it took a bit longer than expected to receive them, when they arrived they were absolutely stunning. I ordered black legs with no nail head trim and all instructions were followed as directed. They are very comfortable and our friends and familly agree. We love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasHomeShopper Gorgeous and great price bar stool
We ordered the counter stool in Haylard Natural fabric with the pewter nailhead trim for our kitchen counter. They are absolutely gorgeous; we get so many compliments on them. The oversize nailheads make them look stylish and modern. The swivel is also a nice feature. We searched for custom barstools and most are very expensive; these were a relative bargain. Very pleased with purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cagirlnews Love the look
I love how beautiful this stool looks but make sure you order swatches of fabric first. I did and was very pleased with the fabric however I'm not so pleased with the finish on the legs. The driftwood is a painted grey/taupe finish. Nice if it didn't have to match it with my other furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann4000 very nice for the price
These look much more expensive than they are. Having said that, there are some things that aren't as great as they could be but considering the price, I am totally happy with them anyway. The color isn't as I thought it would be. The upholstery is called Signature Teal velvet but to me it is a cross between navy and royal blue. It doesn't seem to have as much green as it did in the image online. However, if I had been smart, I would have had gotten a swatch before to make sure it was going to be what I thought. The velvet was a little scuffed and crushed in areas. If these were $1200 bar stools, I would have a problem with it. For this price, they're just fine! Also, I personally didn't like the dullness of the pewter nail heads although I loved how big and dramatic they were. I will replace them with polished ones. Again, because of the great price, I am happy to do this to make them perfectly what I want. I am nit picking. They are really beautiful and I would highly recommend these counter stools!

My stools turned out perfect. I provided the fabric and the workroom did a fantastic job of properly matching the patterns of the fabric on both stools. These stools are very solid and high quality construction.

I ordered 4 Marcello Counter Stools in black finish with brass details and a purple fabric to go behind counter height bars that anchor the backs of our movie theater recliners... They are perfect! Comfortable enough to sit in through an entire film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hotdecor The barstools are of great quality.
I love my barstools. Very comfortable and the material is better than I expected - great design. Most of all it was just the right height for my kitchen island! The barstools came packed very well so there is very little chance of damage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fitmumma Great product, slow production time
I went with my gut instinct and ordered these stools in velvet, rather than the practical Sunbrella fabric. And I'm so glad i did. These stools are a joy to sit on (they replaced hard plastic stools) -- and the footrests are awesome -- even on bare feet.
I am so happy with these -- they are wide and very cushioned.
My only complaint wold be that they took far longer than the 12 week production time that was promised. That is ridiculous -- you would think they were coming from overseas!! But now that I finally have them, the whole family is thrilled.

by KCDAVIS Best Counter Stool Ever!
This counter stool is a great investment! Looks amazing in our kitchen & very comfortable. I chose basketweave oatmeal fabric and cognac finish. I ordered a swatch before I placed my counter stool order. I have a toddler, so I wanted to see how the fabric took to stains. I put a little juice and ketchup on the swatch. I tested it out and gently cleaned the fabric and the stain came right out! I would definitely recommend the fabric as well. Very durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kitchenredo Beautiful, but not quite deep enough
I ordered 8 of these stools in the Haviland gray and they are beautiful and look amazing in my kitchen, but i wish they were a little deeper. They are not as comfy as I had hoped. I think another inch or two in depth would help. I love the swivel and I am sitting in one as I write this review, but I do wish they were a little deeper.
