Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this stool! This stool looks amazing in my kitchen! It is very lightweight and easy to move around. I can just slide it out from underneath my computer desk area so easily on my hardwood floors. I love the style and colors so much! Thanks Ballard! November 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made! I had been looking for stools for my new home for quite a while. These were a perfect match for my great room. Love the nailhead details! Well made, very sturdy. I added non slip caps to the feet so the stool is easier to get on and off on hard wood floors. Other than that, they were ready to good right out the box! October 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality I bought 2 - Distressed Cherry with Black Leather during the 30 yrs anniversary promotion - can't expect more with this nice price. Good quality, the leather feels good. The reason not giving 5 starts is the stools are a little bit lower for my standard height island. And the cushion is not thick. October 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Barstool in Whitewash Awesome barstool comfortable and also elegant looking June 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Barstools I read all the other reviews before purchasing and can honestly say that any negative comments should be taken with a grain of salt. I ordered two barstools in the aged driftwood and they are absolutely beautiful. The stools are very well made. They seem very sturdy and are stained beautifully. They come completely assembled and the packaging is very well done. Ballard seems to have perfected how to ship these, the packaging protected my stools from any damage in shipping. I have been looking for the perfect barstools for my new home for about 1 year and my search is over! LOVE these barstools. Everyone complements them when they come to my home! April 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard to please customer .... SATISFIED!!!! I rarely take the time to review an item when I make a purchase, but this one deserved my attention! After much research I decided to go with the Marlow Barstool in the Distressed Cherry; we purchased 5. I am difficult to please most of the time, very particular and detail oriented that notices everything! With that being said, I was a little hesitant to order d/t some of the negative comments I read (mostly good though). Customer reviews carry a lot of weight for me... I take them seriously and will judge items based off of someones review who knows first hand. Anyway, I decided to go with them b/c I wouldn't know unless I at least tried and if worse came to worse, I would just send them back and eat the shipping costs. They arrived fairly quickly, I was very excited to see these stools in our brand new kitchen! They came packaged perfectly and all in one piece so that was great! No messing around with assembly which is always a bonus! ;) First, the positives.... I LOVE the FINISH! They are distressed perfectly. They are solid and they are sturdy. They look expensive and the price was very reasonable. They are comfortable. I was impressed overall and would recomend especially if you are undecided and are not sure, I can tell you with much confidence that I know you won't be sorry if you order these stools. The negatives: Actually I only have ONE NEGATIVE and that is what I was afraid of since I had read this in some past reviews.... those people were right about the leather! I do think it is a pretty dumpy leather material. It is not soft, it is not smooth and they do NOT have that "new leather smell". Actually, I don't even know if they really are leather? I mean, the desciption calls it leather, but speaks nothing of the quality of it. So, this was what I immediately thought... we will use the death out of these stools. When the seat wears down and they start to lose their life, and/or I am sick of them... I will just get them re-upholstered. I definiitely think the remainder of the stool is worth holding onto and totally worth the cost of re-finishing with another material of our choice. So, that is my story... In a nutshell: I love the stools! I made a good choice! Happy customer! Smooth purchase! Mission accomplished! March 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them Perfect creamy finish, soft cushiony seat. We love hanging out on these comfortable stools and have had a multitude of compliments. November 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we ordered! The stools are of good quality and go perfect with our decor. The leather is more shiny than preferred, but read that in another we expected that. Order went smoothly and delivered when stated. Overall, a very good experience. November 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and Beautiful! I couldn't be happier with the 3 barstools I received. Packaged well, sturdy and so beautiful. I love that the leather just wipes clean when little fingers get them dirty! Another Ballard favorite in our house! October 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Even Better in Person These barstools (I have 4) are beautiful, comfortable, substantial, and sturdy. I showed them to the people who designed my new kitchen, and they were so impressed that they immediately purchased the same barstools for their showroom. July 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful design I originally only bought two for my kitchen but after having them for a year I decided to buy one more to complete the look. They are well made and very expensive looking. They also fit nicely under the counter. I would highly recommend these stools. June 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by fabulous value a princely look a pauper can afford! Incredible value, excellent quality, gorgeous look..........and customer service worked with me to maximize savings. Incredible shipping time! Flawless transaction - 110% all the way around..... November 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am so glad I ordered the Marlow Nailhead Barstools The Marlow barstools are exactly what I had hoped for. I ordered the white finish with the brown leather seats and couldn't be more pleased. They are gorgeous and feel very sturdy. November 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful design I bought these for my kitchen counter and they look wonderful. The craftsmanship is wonderful and they are very comfortable. I highly recommend them! October 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is made well! I ordered these stools in the pewter leather which looks great with the white wash finish. They are made very well and have a very unique look to them. The also arrived so quickly after my order. I was glad I ordered 6! October 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love the look of this stool and the color of the leather. It is better in real life and have received lots of compliments on it! This is a great piece especially if you like distressed furniture with a modern feel. I chose the white to go with my white spring granite counters. The leather gives it more of a sturdy feel and is easy to keep clean while sitting at our counter/ bar. I have gotten many compliments on it. The scalloped edge of the seat makes it feminine while the leather gives it the masculine yang. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! March 16, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good price, average stool This stool was advertised as being hardwood with a leather seat and for such a product the sale price was outstanding. However, when it arrived it had a "bonded leather" seat and not the top quality leather I expected, and the frame was lighter weight and darker colored than I had hoped. But return shipping is expensive so I kept my purchase. It's been a few months now and after a few spills on the leather light spots have appeared that cannot be removed. I don't think the leather will hold up long at this rate. These stools are only average in quality, not good, and the leather is a minus feature. March 16, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Classy & Eye Catching! Have been looking for a barstool like this for quite some time and found it here at Ballard Designs! Overall I love this stool! There in only two negatives I might say about this stool and that is one, the seat cushion sinks a lot when you sit down. You wonder if it will regain its original shape, but so far it has. Secondly, the stool only has one foot bar to rest your feet on, which means you must make sure the stool is always facing a certain direction or you have to get up and switch it after sitting down. Otherwise, beautiful looking and good price! March 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific Barstool! I absolutely love these barstools! They not only look great but are made well and very sturdy. I receive compliments frequently about them. March 16, 2011
