Rated 3 out of 5 by L8AGN Great look, not so great comfort.
Great looking counter stool that's well made with solid construction. That being said, it's just not comfortable. The weaving pattern of the rush seat creates a couple ridges which sit right on top of wood cross members below making for an uneven uncomfortable seat. Bottom line, when spending this much on a stool it needs to function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LakeSUPgirl These stools are beautiful!
I had been looking for industrial style counter stools for a year and wanted them to be mixed metal and wood and sturdy. These stools are all that and more because they swivel too! I wish that the seat was wood, because not sure how well the rush seat will last, and it leaves marks on my legs, so I will have to find cushions for them. but -
I love them!

I am so glad I ordered these bars stools, I researched high and low for one that is perfect for our new home! My husband was very picky also and he wanted these stools! We got 5 of these stools and arrived pretty quick! The quality is excellent and at first I thought they would be smaller, but I am glad they are the size they are, I little bigger than I thought!
It is very sturdy and I am in love with the style! I actually found another company that were similar but they were 3 times more costly than these! But I am not dissapointed cause these were better than I expected to be! Look no further, cuz these are much nicer in person!!!

I ordered 4 of the bar stools on a Monday and they were delivered by Friday! Great product. Comfortable stools...sometimes the straw seat can catch on clothing. But nothing major.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lindas23 Excellent Counter Stools
These stools were delivered the same week I ordered them. They were delivered in perfect shape and were very easy to assemble. The chair is very sturdy with an ample seat and swivels completely around. They look gorgeous and I get complements on them all the time. I got the driftwood color and it complements our beach house perfectly.

This counter stool is perfect for my condominium. The aged driftwood oak blends and complements my decor. The dark/black toned metal back bracing contrasts perfectly. The rushed seat adds just the right amount of casualness. It was very easy to assemble (...even Homer Simpson could do it). Very impressed by the quality, especially the finished wood. Ballard Designs picked a winner with this one!

I am so glad you asked for a review. There are so many items I want to address. First I will begin with the ease of ordering. Second the chairs came right on time. Third the packaging was more than excellent. Fourth the assembly was completely easy and lastly the quality and beauty of these products are astounding. Without hesitation I would highly recommend them. They are worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NJdesignforfun Nice looking, sturdy stool, worth the price
These stools look great in my kitchen. I bought the counter height in aged driftwood oak and couldn't be happier. They were easy to assemble and are very comfortable to sit on. The back support makes it easier to sit for a longer period of time than my previous backless stools. it is also great to have the cross bar to rest your feet on. The colors are true to the online pictures. I really like the combination of materials this design offers (wood, metal, etc.).

I purchase 3 of these for my Atlanta home's counter height island, and will move them to SWFL. But, I will need to purchase another one! They're study, lovely, go with everything, and less expensive then a higher end brand that is super close in appearance. EVERYONE LOVES THEM! They swivel too!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HoboCourt Good, sturdy stools for the money
I like these stools very much. They are heavy and sturdy. Industrial / modern enough without being over the top. I like that they swivel. My only issue is the rush seats. I think they are kind of rough and should have more of a lacquer type finish so they don't catch on things. I ordered 4 stools and the rush coloring on 2 of them is more orange than the others. All in all they are good stools and I will be keeping them but I've decided to order round cushions to cover up the rush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greenery2 A+ Stools !!
If you need a high quality, swivel stool that fits in a small footprint, these are the ticket. I purchased 3 of these to fit at the end of my island that has a 30" overhang with a 4" turned leg on the corners. Many stools would not have fit in that space. These are perfect, a little heavier than I thought, but I'll never need to worry about them tipping over. They swivel and all my friends comment how the backs make them so comfortable. Looking forward to years of enjoyment!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ilard Lovely stool
We liked these so much we ordered 4 for delivery to the United Kingdom. They look cool, are weighty and are comfortable, although much improved by a seat cushion. They are something like 18kg each. The swivel is 360 degrees and the mechanism is solid. My concerns are the seat top finishes where the straw (what's it called?) will easily unpick and tear from snagged buttons and denim rivets. The finish on the wood scratches easily to reveal a white primer which is unsightly. So we love the stools, they are very solid, but we are not kidding ourselves regards the quality of finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GringoGary Nice Product, easy to assemble and comfortable
Ordered on a Tuesday, my two stools delivered on Friday. Easy to assemble. Five minutes to unpack and have it fully assembled. One of the holes was a little off line, so the screw went in a bit of an angle. Hope that doesn't create a problem. Otherwise, assembled in no time with no problem. If you read into some of the negative comments, one is potentially the woven thatch to be uncomfortable, scratching the legs. My wife and I didn't have a problem with this at all. She is 5'1" and I am 5'9" and the inside of our legs are well away from the edge of the chair The weight is not much different than a good quality wooden swivel bar stool that we own. I wouldn't want one much lighter . If you were elderly/feeble or a small child, I could see it being a little hard to move in/out. Comfort on a scale of 1-10 would be an 8. If it were my primary eating stool, I might be inclined to look for something more comfortable with a higher contoured back. But for the typical 2-3 stool Island countertop application, it is perfect.

I recently bought these stools for our new home in Central Oregon. I couldn't be happier with the product! They are a combination of rustic and classic but with a fresh twist. I got them in the lighter color and was very pleased! They are solid and easy to assemble and they arrived promptly!

For months I was looking for the perfect 'swivel' stools for my new beach house. I combed the internet and stores til I finally found this counter stool. Not only are they beautiful and absolutely perfect, they arrived the same week I placed the order. My husband had a hard time giving up the old clunky swivel captains stools that 'came with the house' -- but he is absolutely thrilled with this replacement. Good for me all around ;)

by dnamama Looked high and low for quality, swivel stools
I searched for probably four months for the right stools for our new home. Considered the upholstered counter stool and ordered many swatches, trying to make a decision. We have a very open home design and I ultimately decided I didn't want to limit my decor in other areas with upholstery in the kitchen that I could tire of. Ordered these in brown and in driftwood and ultimately decided on the brown. Ballard was EXCELLENT about taking back the ones we did not want, as we bought them during a BRING HOME BALLARD offering. Friends visited last night and were taking pictures of them, as they found them sturdy, the perfect height and the swivel is a must have, to protect floors. Great stools, Ballard. The search is over!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Remodelmomma Good price, great kitchen stool!
I was very reluctant to order new kitchen stools without sitting in them first and looking at them in person. I ordered them because they were on sale and free return was offered if the product wasn't what you wanted so I decided to take the risk. I was glad I did! These are very comfortable chairs and the swivel mechanism is smooth and easy. I think they look even better than the stools they replaced which I liked very much. I would recommend these stools highly. They are heavy compared to other stools if that makes a difference to you.
