Rated 5 out of 5 by Decor500 Heavy, High-Quality Stools
I read many of the Ballard customers' reviews before purchasing these counter stools. They are beautiful, and a little different because of the woven rush seats. They are heavy and well-made, and I have received compliments on them. I got the lighter color, which is actually a bit more "rich" looking than in the online catalog pictures. I am very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCC123 Great quality, very heavy
These barstools are great quality and easy to assemble. They are very heavy which can be a pro or con. I have young children and like how heavy they are knowing my kids cant flip it. They are pricey but you get what you pay for, for sure.

I am extremely pleased with these high-quality counter stools. They were very well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Assembly was easy (hubby put them together in a snap). They are the ideal combination of industrial/rustic chic, perfect for my Texas hill country home. My husband loves the back support they provide. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WatersideSwivel Sturdy and comfortable
Ordered the brown and love the rich color. I also like the combination of the wood frame, rush seats, and the hint of metal on the stool back. They were easy to assemble and comfortable to sit on. Highly recommend!

by n2scuba These stools have a rustic, coastal vibe.
Awesome stools. They arrived yesterday -- in less than a week, regular delivery -- and I put them together myself. I'm a 70-year-old woman! The most difficult part was getting them out of the box, as they are quite heavy. I like that they are substantial. The back rest and foot rest are perfect for me, very comfortable. They were also comfortable for a male friend, taller than I am. I was somewhat taken aback by the unfinished nature of the underside, but since that part is not visible, I'm ok with it. Interestingly enough, the color of the wood matches my sand-colored Quartz countertop, unintended, but nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Weddington Finally, an outstanding value has arrived
Alas, a solid, well constructed and attractively detailed and finished chair that is both comfortable and suggestive of a much more expensive piece of furniture. Swivel feature is a big plus, especially if the chair is used in somewhat tight quarters and that mechanism is solid as well. Overall, a very good purchase that you will feel proud to have guests use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bebe60 Awesome Quality
I ordered 4 of these counter stools. The shipping was very fast and the packing could not have been better. Kudos to Ballard's for their shipping and packing dept. While I absolutely love the design and quality, I sadly have to return. I ordered the Driftwood finish. It is just too light to work with my decor. These counter stools are excellent quality and a steal when they are on sale. Great job Ballards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamela777 Too me they have a Tropical feel
I bought these chairs in the summer of 2014 and they are beautiful. Everyone who comes into my home loves them. I live near the water so I wanted something tropical and theses chairs do it for me. I hunted theses chairs down; saw them in a high gloss magazine called the editor asking where they got them. She tried to help but didn't know where to get them. A few days later I got in the mail Ballard's catalog and on the back page where the chairs I was hunting for. I called them right away and ordered three of them the light color. They are perfect for my kitchen Island. My only disappointment is they don't have any round cushions for the chairs. They are very sturdy chairs.

We ordered two Marguerite countertop stools for kitchen island after seeing them at our relatives home on Thanksgiving. Very sturdy, comfortable and great quality stools. Solid packaging and includes just 4 screws for quick assembly. Fast delivery also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JognJan Exactly as Described
I needed 4 counter stools for our island and wanted something with a low back that would not obstruct the view into the living area. I kept coming back to the Marguerite stools because of the way they looked and the positive reviews. Reluctant to spend that much on something I might not like, I only ordered one at first. I really liked it and ordered three more. They look lovely and are sturdy and comfortable. The only thing I noticed is that the brown on the first chair is a bit darker than the other three. Not terribly noticeable, but perhaps the down side of ordering on two different occasions. I wish they had been cheaper or available in local stores to see in person before ordering, but I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ColleenT UNIQUE BUT TOO YELLOW
I ordered 4 of the counter stools in the lighter color. They arrived quickly and were very well packaged and are solidly built and good looking, but unfortunately, the color is far more yellow/orange than the picture. I was looking for something for whitewash/grey wash and so returned them.
One thing that really bothered me is that the cushion on the stool is not attached correctly. It is centered on the stool so that the cross lines form a "plus" rather than an "x", which is how it should be centered. I notified the company and hopefully they'll let the manufacturer know.
If you are looking for more of a golden color, than these stools are for you. If you or your SO is handy, perhaps the stool cushion can be adjusted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCJ3 Beautiful and Solid Stool
We ordered five of the counter height stools in brown for our newly renovated kitchen. Love, love, love them! They are beautiful, well made and super comfortable. They look great in our white kitchen with espresso island.
Until yesterday, I thought they were virtually un-tippable by my 3 and 5 year olds, but sadly they have proven me wrong. The stools are super heavy, so I warn you that when they fall, they hurt! In addition to an injured toe, the back of the stool broke. So sad on both accounts, but hoping Ballard comes through with a replacement part as I just requested. Despite the drama, still highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by barstoolpurchase Overall great bar stool
This is a good, sturdy bar stool. I love that it has a back but yet at the same time is low enough so the top of it just comes above the counter so it is not too obtrusive. Great color and design and also comfortable. The only thing I would change it the ratan seat, which it not great for in a kitchen with food, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by zasaladad Perfect fit for our home
Solidly built and great design. Only concern is that the rush seats are not as taut as I would prefer. I am worried that in a short time, they will begin to unravel.

we're very happy with these stools. Easy assembly. They're a hefty weight and unlikely to turn over. I love the rounded backs, very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShakerChic Great look and Easy to Put Together
Love these stools. I was set on having a bar stool that swiveled but wanted one with style and not too big of a profile. This fits the bill to a tee as they say. You have to put the chairs together but it was so easy to do and it only takes about 5 minutes to do a chair - a teenager could do it. Perfect for our shore house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by COBOULDERGIRL Great Quality Stools
We ordered 3 Marguerite counter-height stools for a large center, kitchen island. After ordering 3 we decided we needed a 4th stool and they are awesome! Great quality, sturdy, heavy, and they look great. Everyone that comes over comments about them. I would highly recommend them. They not only look good but they are very comfortable as well. At first I wasn't sure about ordering them without seeing them in person or without actually sitting on one ---- but I would order them again in a heart beat. They are exactly what we were looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sandravaleska Great looking Counter Stool
Sounds crazy but I have been searching for 4 replacement stools for my open kitchen for over 10 years. My old ones had comfortable swivel bottoms but no back. Although I do not consider these inexpensive, the value, style & quality are great for the price. Well built stools can easily cost 2x-3x this price so these are well worth it. And yes, they are heavy but in my opinion better that than too light.
My picky husband spends a lot of time on them and approves. Have received multiple compliments from visitors. Ballard did a great job with very quick shipping, easy set up and quality control. It would be nice if they offered an optional pad for base just for additional comfort and long term protection of the rush seat. But those are simple to have made. Very happy that I found the right ones:)!

I purchased three of these counter stools in the aged driftwood finish. They are substantial and well-made. I've gotten quite a few compliments, especially from men, who all comment on how sturdy they feel. I don't know how well the rush seats will wear, but they look good and are comfortable. The price seemed a bit high, but I'm still pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmdrjm Perfect addition to the kitchen!
My stools arrived on schedule and were very easy to assemble. Each stool comes in 2 pieces. The top was already all together as well as the legs and the bottom. All I needed to do was connect the two pieces with 4 bolts, washers and split lock washers. They even supplied the allen wrench.
They are absolutely beautiful and look better than the pictures on the website. The rush seats are not rough as other reviews mentioned and I love the swivel seats. I never thought I would find the stools I wanted until I found these!!

These stools have my mom's name!! Besides that they are are well built and sturdy. The 360 degree swivel are smooth but not too easy as to make you dizzy when moving. The assembly was also very easy.
