Rated 5 out of 5 by azlaolao Beautiful Look, Fair Price
We really love our Marguerite Counter Stools. They are just as nice in style and quality as many other models we considered, but that cost much more. Great product! We had a crack in one of the 4 stools when it arrived, but Ballard handled the exchange and refund very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathySue Comfortable, great look and the size is just right.
We purchased three for our new home, they came boxed and unassembled, thought this was going to be a problem; everything included - easy assembly! The stools sit comfortably and look great at our counter; our guest never fail to ask where we got them and comment on how nice they are.

I am very happy with my recent purchase of the counter height marguerite stools. Very,very easy to assemble which is usually NOT the case. Large seat area if needed and comfortable with excellent swivel feature. A bit more than I wanted to pay, but they have eye candy appeal and are structurally sound; no compromise in any way! The staff was over the top helpful because I first ordered bar height so remedying my mistake was handled quickly and efficiently and this comes from someone who does not feel comfortable ordering ANYTHING online!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gillie This stool is exactly what we needed!
We looked for a long time to purchase a "just right" counter stool for our modern/organic home. This one has all the features we needed: style, strength, and swivel! The rush seat is comfortable and quite large, the driftwood frame is solid and beautiful, and the metal seat back lends an industrial flair. We have 5 of these stools surrounding our island, and we've received many, many compliments on them!

Love these stools. It isn't often that a product you order meets and exceeds your expectations but these stools do just that. Sturdy and beautiful,the mechanism turns so smoothly.Love the finish, wish you had other pieces in the same wood tone.

I just purchased 4 of these stools a few weeks ago. They are awesome!! I have had so many compliments on these stools and everyone asked where I found them. They are different than any other stools I have seen. Would definitely recommend them. They are made very well and easy assemble.

My husband and I love our new counter stools. We purchased them for the kitchen island in our new home.They are very comfortable and sturdy---excellent quality. The swivel seats are very functional in our open kitchen living area--for eating at the counter or swiveling around to watch television. The biggest surprise was how well the finish matches our adjoining breakfast table and chairs. We feel that we will get many years of enjoyment from our purchase.

I really wanted to like this as the stool looked great in the picture and would fit in well with our decor. However, the ruched seat had a very orange color tint, not as neutral as pictured so unfortunately I had to return them. I still think they look great in the picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kiwishopper Solid Sturdy Comfortable - Love Them!
I have bought these stools over from the States to New Zealand after being on holiday and ordering them! These stools are fantastic and well made. They were not flat packed, rather in large well packed boxes. We bought the driftwood lighter colour, if you look at the photo on Ballard's site the true colour would be of the back rather than the legs. Height is perfect for our bench. Good swivel and look great. The only flaw is you have to be out a distance from your bench to swivel as the backs tend to hit my bench. Ideal for a country kitchen. Gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanDesign How lucky!
I designed my new kitchen inspired by the color of the driftwood on these barstools. It's always a little tricky going off a color on the Internet, because all monitors are a little different. But when they showed up, I realized did I ever luck out with these! They match my custom cabinets perfectly. They are very comfortable and sturdy, and I love that you can swivel in and out, rather than constantly scooting the chair across the hardwood floor. If you're thinking about buying these - pull the trigger before it's too late. You won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimInChandler Marguerite Counter Stool
I have a two year old who likes to climb on everything. My old barstools would tip and almost crush him. I bought 4 Marguerite counter stools after seeing them at a friends house. My two year old climbs them no problem. They don't even tip. They are so sturdy. They are beautiful. The only problem I had is that one of the screws didn't line up when I was putting them together. So 1 barstool only has 3 screws holding it together instead of 4. They are really easy to put together. Takes maybe 5 minutes each. I would definitely recommend these.

This stool was a bit more money than most and more than I wanted to spend but they have been well worth it! I have hard wood floors and didn't want to scoot the chair all over. These swivel perfectly and are very comfortable. They are also very sturdy, easy to put together, well made and look great up at the counter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by doesgirl1 Comfortable and attractive stool
A counter stool should be attractive first but comfort comes a close second in my book. These stools do that well. They have a great style and look. The seat material is smooth and comfortable and the swivel seat makes for easy access which is nice because the stools are quite heavy. The back support fits very comfortably on your back and gives good support. They were easy to aasemble with just 2 parts. I was taking these to my daughter who lives several hours away and was concerned the stools would be consistent in wood finish. They matched well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeenRemodeling Super Comfy!
We ordered 4 of these stools for our island. They are very comfortable to sit in, great on the back, great on the seat! We got the lighter colored wood and it has a beautiful darker 'glaze' over it which ties in nicely with the dark brownish charcoal metal back. the footrest is comfortable on your feet too. The only improvement we would suggest is to have the swivel chair have a spring of some sort on it so that when you turn to get off of it, it would return to center. Other than that we are very thrilled with them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by katshopper Great for sitting at my kitchen counter.
These stools have a substantial weight and good, rustic features with smooth functioning swivel seats. The rush seats are a little coarse and I would like to see a comfort pad offered to fit their 18" diameter.

These stools are stunning!! Have wanted them since they first came out and finally purchased 3 of them a month ago when our new house was done being built. I've receive so many compliments on them and everyone comments on how sturdy they are. They're solid, well built and were super easy to put together. Everything you need to do that comes in the box and it took less than 5 minutes to do! Finish is just perfect and the steel bands give it a slightly modern look. I LOVE THESE!!! If you are even remotely considering them, go for it. You won't be disappointed :)

I was very pleased for the quality of these stools. They are very comfortable too. We purchased the light colored wood and they match perfectly next to our antique pine table and chairs. I highly recommend them.

Looked all over, finally found these stools. Love them, they were easy to put together, very study and look terrific and are comfortable. Use them at our kitchen counter and find we tend to sit a little longer now. Would recommend them highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by picyshopper Perfect for today's painted kitchen look
If you are looking for something other than the iron stoods so common today. This is a good answer. This style is hard to find. It really works well in a kitchen that has the updated traditional painted look with a little distressing thrown in. This stool is an ample size, so be sure to check the dimensions for your kitchen. As far as comfort, it could use a cushion on the seat, but this is the only "fix" I would do for this stool. it is beautiful and my frinds who have seen it & sat in it have loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by djvball Great counter stools
Had the chairs for a couple of weeks and love them. Was a bit concerned with the comfort with the seat on bare legs, but no problems. I am going to replace my old bar stools by our pool table with the higher stools in the lighter wood color. The quality of these chairs are great. Very sturdy chairs that look great in my Mexican style kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by xyz2 Very heavy and sturdy
I ordered one chair first to determine if it would work in our kitchen -- and I loved it! Ordered another chair and it came back with uneven cuts and the back was more silver than black - so it did not match the first (it is supposed to be a rustic, rough finish - but this was more an issue of poor crafstmanship/quality control). I needed 3 chairs total and to get 3 "good" chairs, I had to return 2 --- and they are challenging to re-pack and send. The 2nd chair I had to return had scratches and again, quality issues. I finally have 3 chairs that work. Only concern is how well the straw seating will wear over time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Trendyhouse Chair backs not consistent
I really love the style of the new counterstool chairs we received. The only problem is that on one of the chairs the back is pushed further in on the seat than the other two which looks a bit odd. Two are rounded nicely at the edge of the stool while one looks and is pushed in forward on the seat making the person who sits on it sit forward slightly. That was so disappointing. With shipping costs and everything I don't want to spend the money to have it returned and replaced. That is why I only give it two stars. I give it 5 for style though if you don't mind the quality issues.

After buying and returning several counter stools, I found the Ballard site and ordered the Marguerite stools. When the boxes arrived I was nervous to open them..but then thrilled with what I saw. Beautiful color, good quality and they look great in the kitchen! I would definitely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susies Very high quality.
I ordered three Marguerite counter stools and actually just ordered a fourth. They are very sturdy and heavy which I like. I have had the original three for close to a year. Look like new. I have paid 3 times the amount for past homes and I would say these are right there with the quality. Takes a second to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OwlPen22 Product is decorative and sturdy
Stools arrived fairly promptly and in good condition. They were easy to assemble, and are as described. They look great with the island; sturdy, but not clunky. The metal back is a good touch, and the rush seats look modern. The stain is a good shade - not too dark and not blah.
