Rutland Counter Stool 4.5 5 52 52
Sturdy and perfect for outdoor I love these stools. We built a bar in our backyard and needed stools where several people could pull up to the bar and have a drink. These are so nice as they are sturdy and perfect for outdoor use. They are easy to get into and simple in design which makes them so smart looking! I love the sleek modern look! July 28, 2011
Love these stools! We have 3 of these counter stools and love them! They are surprisingly comfortable and are very durable and easy to wash -- which is key with young children. March 16, 2011
great barstool I ordered three of these stools for my kitchen island. The style can go with various decor and they are a great height for your average island. One of mine had small scratches on the seat - appears it may have been returned and repackaged. It wasn't major enough to go through the trouble of returning, but definitely something I noticed. If you're using these on tile or hardwood (as I am) flooring, you will want to add additional padding on the feet to avoid scratches - the pads provided are not very substantial. Overall, I am satisfied with this purchase. September 12, 2013
Nice and simple Bought 3 of these. They fits a in a small apt perfectly. They don't take up a lot of space visually, and are very comfortable to sit on. The low back offers enough back support. December 31, 2012
This stool has great style, it is very sturdy and is comfortable. I have been looking for a long time for stool that had some back but would still fit nicely under my kitchen counter......and that's not all...I also needed it to fit with my decor which can be described best as "a little bit of beach" but in transition to contemporary...this stool does the trick. I think it would fit in well with almost any decor. It has great style, it is very sturdy and is comfortable. I wasn't sure when I bought it how it was going to work in our kitchen/great room (Ballard's free return policy on this item made trying this risk free) but it is perfect! December 21, 2011
Foot Rest Uncomfortable They look ok a bit skinny but overall quite nice, the seating is comfortable but the footrest is awful unless you are wearing shoes or slippers you cant keep your feet on the rest for very long. Returning the four I purchased because of this and not happy that to return I will be minus $135 out of pocket. No I don't recommend these stools unless you wear slippers or shoes. August 23, 2013
compact and under-stated, just what i was looking for These stools look great and fit completely under my kitchen counter, which is exactly what I was looking for. I have the red cushions on them and they look great, and pick up the color of the red knobs on the wolf range top. I agree that the footrest bars are a bit uncomfortable, but tolerable, if you wear slippers or shoes. overall, very, very satisfied with this purchase. September 26, 2012
This product created the exact look I wanted for my kitchen. I first saw these stools at the Southern Living idea house.As soon as I saw them I knew they were exactly what I wanted for my kitchen. When I received them I was so pleased.They have such a low profile but make a wonderful statement.Love them! January 7, 2013
Fits in anywhere! Have a country decor and, even though this stool is a contemporary design, it still fits in perfectly. Use it not only to sit on (comfortable), but at other times as a plant stand. Purchased a second one because was so pleased with first one. January 1, 2013
Oriental look, sturdy These stools with their elegant, Oriental look and sturdy frames are perfect on my deck. I ordered the 13inch round cushions for them. We take our drinks out there in the evening and relax above the water on our new stools. Several of my artist friends have been struck by their design. January 26, 2012
I love how solid these stools are and packaged so beautifully as well.. These will never break as opposed to having bought wooden ones. My only issue is the bottom being iron scratch the wood floors. I put on heavy duty felt but because they are moved back and forth the felt does not stay on and floors continue to get scratched.. I am sure there could be a better solution to permanent protection on the feet of these simple but elegant stools... December 30, 2011
Stylish, sturdy product Love these stools! Our kitchen stools get A LOT of use and must be sturdy. Past wooden stools have always broken after a few years - these are made of sturdy iron and are all one piece, so no loose joints or wobbly screws. Some reviewers have noted that the seats are too small, but we haven't found that to be the case. They are surprisingly comfortable. January 8, 2012
Rutland Counter Stool Great design! Fits perfectly at my counter kitchen. I highly recommend these counter stools. August 26, 2012
Great product We love these chairs, very sturdy. We have 6 children and worried about bar stools that would tip when the children climbed up on them. These stools do not waiver I feel very comfortable letting the kids climb up to the seat on their own. The included feet pads are a bit worthless. April 25, 2013
not comfy, but cute Ordered a sample, complete with cushion to see if my long search for comfortable and nice-looking counter stools could be at an end. The stools were cute, but not at all comfortable, even with cushions. Also, the wrought iron look is great, but there are no pads on the bottom of the legs which would definitely be an issue with tile in any kitchen. If all you're looking for is a cute showpiece, it's fine, but it's definitely not for an active kitchen! January 26, 2012
Excellent Find This stool is incredible!!! It looks like a sculpture. I have an open floor plan with kitchen, dining and living room all together and they complement all three areas although I'm using them as kitchen counter seating. They look great and could be used with both comtemporary and traditional decor are good quality and very comfortable. January 3, 2012
Love these stools and get so many compliments from visitors. Arrived in perfect condition, and required no assembly. I bought three of these and love how they fit right underneath my island countertop. Great product for the price. December 30, 2011
Not comfortable The style and Bring Home Ballard price on these stools are GREAT, but we ended up returning ours. We found them quite uncomfortable. The seats are rather small and the crossbars hurt when you rest your feet on them. I'm disappointed - I've looked for stools for a long time and thought these were "the one!" October 25, 2011
This stool is very sturdy This stool is very sturdy. It feels secure. I added pads on the feet for easier moving. November 12, 2011
One was not enough. Purcahsed one and liked it so much went for another. Paired the two of them with an architect's stool I had purchased years ago. They not only look good they are comfortable. October 12, 2011
Very sturdy I'm very pleased with the stool and impressed with the construction and sturdiness. January 22, 2013
I love the simple design of these stools These stools look great in my kitchen. The simple design and iron construction are great. My only complaint is I wish the counter height version was an inch or two taller, they seem a bit low at my counter height island. I guess I'll have to purchase some cushions to go on them. Overall very pleased with my purchase. May 15, 2012
Unique and comfortable This stool looks different from all others I've seen - a plus in my book. The slim profile looks terrific in my open floor plan house. The footrest isn't great on bare feet, but the lower back surprised us by being adequately supportive. Brrr. The seat is a little to cool without a chair pad, so build one into your budget if you buy this stool. January 2, 2013
Great look I actually saw these stools first in a local cafe and the owner directed me to your site. I have a somewhat small and a little dated kitchen and these stools added just the right touch. Love them! I noticed one little scratch so I hope that does not happen with continued use. September 2, 2013
Great lines These stools fit perfectly beneath my kitchen island counterop, allowing ample passage by the island. Their clean, simple lines and black color complement the marble countertop. With the addition of felt pads, the stools slide easily on the wood floors. These stools are an excellent value. October 12, 2012
Strong and Beautiful I love the architectural, industrial look of these stools. They arrived assembled (a plus), and ready to use after I put felt pads on the feet. They are perfect for a quick meal or snack at the breakfast bar. I wanted stools that weren't "the same old thing" but also didn't break the bank - the Rutland Stool fits the bill! March 21, 2011
Perfect!!! Love this stool!!! We wanted a minimalist look for our counter. Fit the bill perfectly. They are very sturdy and we like the finish on them. The little back support really works. Only thing they need are better pads for the feet. The ones they come with only last a couple of days and then become unstuck. They do need something if they are to be used on tile or wood flooring but easy to remedy with new ones from the hardware store. April 27, 2012
Sturdy, nicely designed counter stool I bought three of these for my kitchen island. They're a true black color, and the design is simple and modern. They're sturdy and don't tip easily-- I have a 2 year old who climbs on and off them all day and even at 30lbs, doesn't tip them. Like any piece of furniture that rests on hard wood/tile floor, you'll need to add gripper pads to the bottom of the feet to keep the stools from sliding, and to protect your floors, but those are inexpensive and easy to find. April 6, 2012
Happy with these bar stools Just the height we needed. The backs provide a bit of support, but they're short enough that we can tuck the chairs under the counter. Chairs are a good weight -- heavy enough that they're substantial, light enough that they're easy to move. We really like how they look too. If you use them a lot, I'd recommend investing in cushions -- can get uncomfortable after awhile otherwise. November 13, 2011
This product is a good fit for all decorating styles I love these counter stools. They are sturdy, very comfortable and easy to move since they aren't at all heavy. They more than meet my expections. July 29, 2011
