Parsons Chair - Frame Only 4.5 5 54 54
Great Host and Hostess Chairs! I bought two of these along with the Parson's Piped Slipcover to use as our Host and Hostess chairs in our dining room. Very elegant! Only negative pertaining to the slipcovers was that only a single initial monogram was offered. Plan to have our own 3 inital monogram added. April 6, 2011
Great Chair! I bought two of these chairs to go in our upstairs office. They are very comfortable when you have to sit at the computer for several hours, and they provide good back support when you lean back. Great price, also! June 16, 2011
very comfortable I use these chairs at both ends of my kitchen table. They compliment the plain wood chairs at the rest of the table very well. My only wish is that there were more pre-made fabric options in the store so I could change the look for the seasons. March 16, 2011
I love this chair, the cover fits perfectly. The chair is elegant, classy and a great price. The cover is exactly the color I expected it would be and fits perfectly with no wrinkles. May 13, 2011
These chairs look great While I love the chairs and find them the perfect fit for my kitchen, my husband finds them to be a bit low for sitting at the table. March 17, 2011
comfy and well-sized I wanted fabric chairs to go with my Spanish-style table. It's a huge table with chunky turned legs, so I wanted something that would help lighten up the look. I ended up ordering the Parsons chair because the size was just right for my table. It is wide enough to be comfortable without being too wide, and the height works so you aren't bumping your legs on the table apron. My husband tested the chair and thought it was really comfy - he is 6'1" and it is big enough for him. I also love the idea of being able to have several slipcovers I can change out for different occasions or season. I only have one chair right now - I ordered it so I could test it out before I made the entire purchase. It came in about week and was well packaged. I'm anxiously awaiting the other 5, which I just ordered today! I do kind of wish the legs were not covered in fabric, it would be nice to use the chair with a short slipcover, but over all I'm really happy. For the price point on these chairs you can't beat the quality and adaptability. September 29, 2012
Too short for dining room table We bought this chair to see if it would work with a dining room table. The quality is good, it is comfortable yet I feel like an eight year old at my parents table. Why would anyone make a chair a substandard height is beyond me. Since this was mail order and we didn't have the proper packing material, we had to take a loss on it and the cover. March 16, 2011
Well made and comfortable We were able to use our parsons chairs for the first time for our Thanksgiving feast! Very comfortable and sturdy. December 1, 2013
Far too cushy for practical use I found that the cushion on the seat of this parsons chair seems cheap. You sit on it, and whoosh, down you sink, below a comfortable level for either dining table or desk. It looks lovely with the fresh, white twill cover that I purchased with it, but for practical use, the cushion makes this chair uncomfortable and, well, impractical! Too bad that I didn't try before I purchased. The very expensive shipping charges (which will be deducted from my purchased if I were to return) mean that I will lose too much money by returning! I'm very disappointed in this product, and yes, in Ballard. August 14, 2011
The parsons chair is comfortable and solid. My parsons chair arrived as promised, fully assembled, in good condition and on time. I wanted a chair that could be used as a desk chair and double as seating in our living room area, where I have tucked a very small office space. This chair is ideal! It is attractive with a cotton slipcover added, and provides a comfy spot to pay bills and research future purchases. I am concerned about indoor air quality, so I try to find pieces that do not outgas harmful chemicals. I have no breathing issues with this lovely chair. When company arrives, I have extra seating by turning it around to face the sofa. I added a small decorative pillow (8"X12") for a bit of short-term lumbar support, and it serves nicely in my little home office. July 25, 2012
This product is simple, elegant, comfortable and a great price! I am very pleased with these chairs which I bought to use with an antique round pedestal table in the kitchen dining area. I have had many compliments on them from friends and family and they get high marks for comfort too. I just love to have pieces that are versatile and these parsons chairs fit the bill perfectly in that department. They can be used for extra seating in the living room when we have company and they look great. They also make a useful bedroom or bathroom chair too. Another great feature is the ability to take off the covers for washing or making a fresh look with a new cover in a different color or fabric at some time in the future. I'm very pleased. Thank you! May 26, 2012
Elegant and perfect to set off my antique table. This chair is comfortable and looks great with super white twill slipcover in a beach house with an antique 60" round mahogany dining table. March 29, 2014
Comfortable desk chair This is the second Parsons chair I've purchased. I have the one with rollers in my office and I got this one for my sewing table. It is the perfect height and it is very comfortable. I like the fact that it is lightweight and easy to move. Also like that it doesn't have arms but does have a comfortable, padded back. I bought a slip cover for it that I love as well - - got that on sale at Ballard and love that I was able to have it monogrammed for free. Wish that the shipping costs on bigger items like the chair were a little less though but all in all a good price on the chair. October 26, 2011
comfortable, but a little low I purchased (2) chairs in September for my dining table. They came packaged well and were in good condition. The slipcovers I ordered for them seem to fit the chairs perfectly. The only thing my husband and I noticed was that the chairs do sit a little lower then your standard dining chair and takes a little getting use to when eating. It would be nice if they made one normal dining chair height and one for use not at a table. They are very comfortable to sit in as they have nice padding. Since we haven't used the chairs a lot I can't really say how well they will hold up, time will tell. October 24, 2012
These parsons chairs are sturdy, comfy and attractive. I've always been reluctant to order furniture "sight unseen", but since I couldn't find what I wanted at the price I wanted in the B&M stores, I decided to take the chance. I am absolutely over the moon with these 2 parsons chairs and also with the monogrammed slipcovers we ordered! They are comfortable, sturdy and add a touch of casual elegance to our dining room. I'm just trying to figure out where I can put another one! They are perfect! December 16, 2011
Well made, perfect size. My 3rd purchase! I started with a Ballard parsons chair to use in my office as a desk chair, with a Ballard slipcover. It's perfect and has held up beautifully. Bought a second for spare seating in the sunroom, and just purchased two more to use as dining chairs. (Again with Ballard covers.) The skirted upholstery-quality slipcovers make these look like very expensive chairs, and they are so versatile. I have looked elsewhere (local & online) for Parsons chairs and have never found any of this quality. July 6, 2013
My family loves these chairs! I purchased 6 of these last year for use as everyday dining chairs. I also purchased the slipcovers in the small black check pattern. Unlike a prior reviewer, I find that these chairs have very good and firm cushioning, even after 1 year of daily use. Great value and versatility - definitely recommend. August 26, 2011
Welcome addition! I am very happy with my new chairs. The slipcovers were a little difficult to put on but that just made the final look sagging or whimpy looking covers. A great chair and nice look for the dining room. March 16, 2011
sturdy frame I use these chair at either ends of my kitchen table and they add warmth and a richness to the wood set. They are sturdy and comfortable. March 16, 2011
These chairs are very comfortable for a straightback These chairs are very comfortable for a straightback and by using slipcovers can be intergrated into almost any room. April 8, 2011
great chairs I love these chairs and wish I had discovered them sooner!!! March 31, 2011
good value for price point I purchased two of these chairs together with the slipcovers. Am very pleased with the chairs and overall with the slipcovers, although the slipcovers do not reach all the way to the floor so there is a bit of white frame peaking out. May 2, 2013
Great fabrics to chose from for this chair I ordered six of these chairs in two different patterns and I love them. Being site unseen (I did get sample fabrics) I am so impressed with the quality of the chair and fabric. I have only had these for a couple of months so I cannot attest to long term use but I am so not worried about that as they seem very durable. I was very impressed with the packaging and shipping. April 8, 2013
We now have six i bought two parson chairs in the early nineties for a small breakfast nook. Two more for another house with room for four chairs. Now just added two more. They look wonderful and are wearing well. Slipcovers have been great. June 22, 2011
Frayed fabric The chair is very comfortable, however, it arrived with the fabric frayed where it wraps around one of the legs. Because it is such a large item it would be a pain to return so I will just sew it. It was disappointing. Other than that I love it. February 20, 2013
Beautiful I wanted a small chair for my bathroom and it was the perfect choice! The slipcover was beautiful and it was delivered very promptly. February 16, 2013
My go-to extra seating These chairs have been my extra seating for years. I have four of the first generation version that have to be a decade old and are still in great shape. Just added two more and the new seat is definitely firmer and further reinforced. A quick change of the slipcover and I can use them in any room! January 16, 2013
These are my favorite chairs! I love these chairs. They are so versatile. The styling can be adapted to any decor. The two I recently purchased will be added to six others that I have purchased over the years going back at least 12 years. I use one at my dressing room vanity, one at my desk, and six at my dining room table. They are all upholstered in complementary fabrics so that I can mix and match them whenever necessary. December 4, 2012
A classic The chair is well constructed. Only negative is that I would like the seat to be about an inch higher. I have since ordered and received the black checked slipcover and I am very pleased with my two purchases! January 4, 2013
matched I was trying to match previously owned parsons from Ballard and was concerned that they might be different and the seat height is slightly taller but otherwise a perfect match. November 2, 2012
