Rated 5 out of 5 by Happyinnaples Sturdy, comfortable and heavy
Love the two swivel chairs I purchased, easy to assemble and they look great in my kitchen. Right height so I don't have to lean over the stools to use the counter space.

Rated 1 out of 5 by westlove Beautiful but not well made
These are gorgeous but the foot rest has fallen off of two of these bar stools. My husband (weighs 180 pounds) put weight on the foot rest and it fell off. It happened shortly after we received them and BD was great about taking them back. Sad because we loved them but I don't recommend buying these.

I ordered the counter stools. They were carefully packaged and easy to put together. They are comfortable to sit in. I ordered the driftwood oak color. They are a nice lighter brown stain with some black or dark brown glazing in the distressed areas.

We purchased three of these Marguerite Counter Stools and they are fabulous. Everyone that comes into our home comments on how nice they are. Good quality, beautiful finish & great value. Very comfortable too! Thanks Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerusalem Just the look we wanted.
We love these stools because they are comfortable for the tall people in our family. They also meet the swivel requirement and they are very solid and good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momofmany Great rustic/modern stools
These stools are exactly what I wanted. I searched for months to find rustic/modern stools. I had two criteria: they needed backs and had to swivel. I couldn't be happier about this purchase. They are well priced for the quality. They are unique, and I receive tons of compliments on them. I should also add that they are really comfortable.

These chairs are wonderful! They are sturdy, of good quality and swivel beautifully! They are actually better than we expected. The wood color was also very close to the picture, so we did receive what we were hoping for. Nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by itgal Great look and quality.
The stools are exactly what I was expecting. The boxes they came in were torn from shipping but the stools were not harmed. Quality is solid, appearance is just as depicted, swivel is smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kfn58 Truly great stools....
The photos of the stools were spot on—they really are that good looking. And, as a plus, they are super sturdy. I've already gotten several compliments on them. They are certainly a great addition to our kitchen/sunroom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by observant An Attractive stool
I like the stools, but was disappointed with some of the features. The rush on the seats has a few loose ends and I am concerned pieces will start to come undone the more the stools are sat on. I wish the bottom rung where you can rest your feet had a metal stripping on it to protect the finish and wood from daily use as time goes on.
I think the price is a bit high as I compared them to other stools I have seen in my earlier search.
I think the 3 stools I purchased go well with the style of my kitchen, but do hope they stand up to the test of time and daily use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Metrogirl We finally found the perfect stools that fit under our counter
I can't believe how quickly our order arrived. The stools are beautiful and were very easy to put together. I only ordered 2 because I wasn't sure if we'd like them. I'm now going to order one more. The seat is nice and roomy and the fact that it swivels is an extra bonus. They really look great in our remodeled kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jjinva Beautiful Counter Stool & Quick Delivery!
I was very impressed with the speed of Ballard Design's delivery...less than a week! I ordered the darker stain counter stools and they are beautiful. I was worried about the "reed" seat being comfortable. I love the look and it's comfortable enough. I will decide later, after use, if I will add a pad of some sort. Otherwise, they are perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovesblue Very Happy with these stools
These stools are easy to put together and very heavy duty. They are made of nice, heavy wood which makes them feel very sturdy. They look exactly how I was expecting them to look and the swivel is a nice, slow swivel, not one that my kids will be doing 360's on. The only negative is that they are so heavy that they are difficult to move around very easily. However, with 3 young boys, this is probably more of a positive!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tola Sturdy, swivel works nice and smooth
I ordered the darker colored ones to go with my recently remodeled kitchen. I am pleased with them. The iron back details and the woven seats go well with my light fixtures and the rattan dining chairs. Also have wicker in my sun room off the kitchen so the woven seats pull everything together. They seem to be well made, easy to put together. I purchased 4 and 1 did have a loose piece of weave but it doesn't seem to be coming apart, just didn't get tucked well enough so I kept it. Overall very happy and they look great.

I had been looking for new kitchen stools for over a year. When I saw the stools in your catalogue, I knew I had finally found what I wanted. We have had them for about a month now and are very happy we ordered them! Everyone who has seen them loves them as much as we do-- Thank You.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MGMBI These counter stools are sturdy and well made. The swivel is smooth and consistent in all of the three chairs we ordered.
The whole process, from ordering to receiving and assembling the counter stools was smooth and efficient. The product is just what I expected, turnaround time for delivery was excellent, and customer service response was spot on! I will definitely consider Ballard Designs for future purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marcella just perfect!
I have a relatively small area for counter stools; my old ones were way too big. These stools are beautiful, solidly built (and easy to assemble!) and swivel easily.
I love them, and admire them every day.

I bought 4 of these for our coastal home. They are very sturdy and comfortable, and look great. One of the stools had some black markings on the seat, so we exchanged it, and Ballard's customer service was fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Salgal Love these stools.
Very heavy, but that is better than too light. I had requested wood sample for color and the sample was nothing like the actual chair. It looks just like in the catalog which was perfect for us. These are handsome stools, which are hard to find. Price was great. Good swivel ability. Very pleased with purchase. Look fabulous in our renovated kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OIBgirl Stools are extremely good looking
We were intimidated about having to assemble the stools but they were basically already together. So, so easy. These stools are exactly as pictured. I would say even better. Just the perfect combination of rustic style and contemporary design. Rush seat is so comfortable and large enough for anyone. I love the swivel!! Perfect stool for any area. I love the way they improve the look of our kitchen area. Outstanding product and beautifully made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarylandDesigner jury is still out
I am a designer and my client has not yet moved into the new house for which we ordered the bar stools. After many shipping snafus, I'm hoping that they are in good condition and will work well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Missy54 Great kitchen stool
Very nice sturdy stool. Up to the moment styling for that slightly rustic trend. We like that it swivels, size is nice and comfy. Only comment that I have is that it is a little clunky looking. Might look better in the bar height. We needed the counter height. Enjoy!

I was specifically looking for counter stools in light wood which is hard to find. These fit the bill perfectly. They are good quality, sturdy and delivery was prompt. I put them together in just a few minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Livingwiththepast Happy with my choice
I recently renovated my 100 year old kitchen and still wanted the "aged" look. I desperately searched for counter stools and am so happy with my choice. Husband wanted comfort, kids wanted swivel, I wanted rustic, good looks...everyone is more that satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zillow12 Purchased these in brown
I purchased these stools by phone in brown sight unseen. At the time, the website did not give a color option and, as I was purchasing these for my new white kitchen, decided to go with the darker color hoping for more of a contrast - they are beautiful and assembled unbelievably quick. I actually planned to return them due to a delivery snafu as I was upset; however, the quality and beauty of the product when I did receive it changed my mind and renewed my faith in Ballard Designs.

The stools swivel nicely and are very attractive and
heavy enough a young child can't tip it easily like most.
Very, very pleased!!!
