Rated 5 out of 5 by Funwithdecor Looks like it was reupholstered
This slipcover is a perfect fit. Very tight to get onto the chair. This makes for a tight fit and not one that loosens with use. The piping also adds to the look of reupholstery and not slipcover looking. The basketweave fabric is very sturdy and pretty at the same time. The monogram is a perfect little addition to the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by customer4life Seems good quality
I ordered both linen and cotton slipcovers. I was pleased with the weight of the fabric. It has a nice tight fit on the chair and does not shift with use. Ironing the wrinkles out took awhile but the results looked very nice. I sent the linen slipcovers to the dry cleaners and they came back good as new. I have not washed the cotton slipcovers yet so I have my fingers crossed that they will wash well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by magnoliax2 Outstanding, great quality work!
Couldn't be happier! Great skill shown by people who actually did the upholstery work. I sent my own fabric, didn't use Ballards', and this worked out well. Fairly simple, filled out the required forms, fabric shipped directly from where I bought it, and turned out well!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cocoa Loved the look and the fabric.
The chairs turned out beautifully with the red covers. The skirts on the chairs are a little long and get caught in the wheels at times. This is more noticable since they are on carpeted surfaces. Maybe make them a little shorter to account for carpets.
Love all your products that I have purchased over the years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ballardchk Shrunk in wash
I was so excited to receive my Ballard Slipcovers. When I put the slipcovers on the Ballard Parsons Chair, they fit beautifully. My daughter spilled a drink on the 2nd day. I thought, no problem, that's what the slipcovers are for. Washed one in cold water on gentle and let it air dry. Sure enough, major shrinkage. Now the legs show. Ver disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PKBB This product is beyond my expectations
I have been looking for Parsons chair slipcovers for several months so that I would have a set to rotate with some very expensive slipcovers that I had custom made. I was skeptical after reading the reviews, particularly those talking about loose threads and wrinkles. I received the slipcovers yesterday and they are fantastic, much better than I hoped for! They definately needed ironing prior to putting on the chairs, but that is expected. The cotton fabric is substantial and the quality among all 4 pieces is consistent. They fit the chairs GREAT, and these aren't even Ballard chairs! So HAPPY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllOutdoors Completing a set of six for my new dining room
Preferring a more organic look, these slip covers over the Parson's Chair base blend perfectly with the rest of my home's decor. The nubby linen fabric is so thick and rich, it adds just the right dimension of texture to my dining room area. The look is easily dressed up or down, depending on the table decorations. Thank you, Ballard, for providing such easy decorating solutions with the presentations in your catalogs and on-line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvNaples2 Beautifully made!
I received my super white twill slip covers & I couldn't be any happier! They were back ordered but I didn't mind waiting because I bought them when they were on sale plus I had a coupon & they didn't charge my account until they shipped! The seams inside the slip covers are so beautifully finished which I never expected for the price I was getting them for. The fit is beautiful as well! They needed a little pressing which I did expect because of being folded for shipping! I feel like I stolled them because the price for the quality is unreal! Now my Coastal look is complete!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by seescandies Disappointed in the quality
I have had a set of Parsons Chair slipcovers for 8 years and they finally wore out, so I ordered a new pair in a different color. Very disappointed in the quality. One had dirt on the skirt and the other has a tiny stain on the front that won't come off, brand new right out of the package. Also, the monograms are puckered and some of the strings are unraveling already. I don't think these will be lasting 8 years like my other ones!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheOptimist Covers look custom. Wash sparingly.
We have three different sets of Ballard Parsons Chair Slipcovers in the stocked fabrics. Two sets are cotton twill, one set is velvet. My review relates to the cotton twill covers specifically.
The fit is fantastic - these slipcovers fit like a glove (some maybe too much like a glove - can be difficult to pull on chair backs). The cotton twill fabric is heavy and makes the chairs look substantial. The appearance is FAR superior to covers you can purchase at other retailers.
Unfortunately I have been disappointed with the covers after washing. I have washed the twill covers three times, following the washing and drying directions carefully. After each washing they are smaller and shorter (like four inches shorter). Bottom line - they don't stand up well to repeated washings.
And a caution - dye colors vary. If you think you'll need 8, buy all at once because we've seen a fairly dramatic color variance between purchases not made at the same time.
All of that said, I'm buying them again because they look good - and they make my rather frugal Parsons chairs look like they were custom made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by patsmom slipcover does not fit as well as shown in picture
The slipcover does not fit as well as shown on the website, and the fabric remains extremely wrinkled and creased, even though it has been on the chair 10 days or so. Guess I will try steaming it. Also, it took about 3 mos. to arrive.....way after I received the chair.
The chair is another matter. It is so light-weight, that even the slightest bit of weight resting on the top back causes it to tip. I wanted rollers, but they probably do add to this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beth0310 Don't know how i missed the polyester in the description
NOT at all happy with my purchase. I paid TOO much money for a cotton blend product.
i selected the color and should have looked more carefully. this is certainly my fault but i expected better quality out of your brand.
makes me shy to purchase again.

I love this chair! It has such a nice shape and the padded seat is very comfortable. The slipcovers really set off my pedestal, glass top table.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MoniM Confusing Ad but nice covers
Okay so color me crazy but when I go to the furniture section of the site and see "Slipcovered Parsons Chair in Ballard Essentials Fabrics" I am under the impression the chairs are included and since the price is slashed I am guessing its a close out… I called to check on the chair shipping since it also says chairs will arrive separate from the covers. I get it now that its covers only but the ad should change and do not list it in the furniture section since you have a slipcover section to avoid misleading ads. The covers are nice but I want to see total walk away price not piecemeal. Thanks! http://www.ballarddesigns.com/slipcovered-parsons-chair-in-ballard-essentials-fabrics/furniture/category/dining-kitchen/dining-chairs/13173

Rated 1 out of 5 by KimJR fabric loosens up over time and gets caught under casters
I ordered 3 chocolate slipcovers for 3 of the Ballard castered Parsons chairs and had them each monogrammed. They looked gorgeous at first but as we sat in them and used them the fabric loosened up and would get caught under the casters. Two of them ripped by the front left caster and had to be fixed at dry cleaners. They have all faded.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hill810 Not Ballard standards
I have 4 chairs and have ordered two sets of slip covers, each about a year apart. The first set I received were sewn nice and looked great. The second set is horrible. The seems are sewn crooked and the piping isn't aligned on any of the four chairs. I am very disappointed with these. I put them all on and threw away the packaging, so guess I'm stuck with them now. After a few months of starring at them I am wondering if I should order another four covers, or order new chairs from another company.

We recently purchased replacement covers for our parsons chairs. They fit as beautifully as the first set (that lasted in a retail setting for 6 years!!!). Love the new color and the linen look of the new fabric.

I thought these would fit ALL PARSON CHAIRS. They do NOT fit mine. The tag says made to fit BALLARD PARSON CHAIRS. I did not note that at time of order. They are nice but fit loose on my chairs so they are going back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by sunnycali Chair slipcover shrunken!!!
I like the chair cover when it came. I had to iron it though. The chair cover was noted as machine washable; however, after the first wash it shrunken. I am very unhappy since I have to buy BD chair cover in order to fit my parson chairs.

I love my slipcovers. They do need ironing or dry cleaning when you receive them because they are linen, but well worth the effort. Very pretty and wonderful fabric.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shrinkingviolet Shrinks
While I love the look of these slipcovers, the whole purpose of having a slipcover is defeated when it shrinks after washing. I have had these chair covers for 6 months and they have shrunk so much that half of the chair legs are now showing. I will have to reorder the same, though, because they are the only slipcovers that fit the parsons chair.
