Simone Bench is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in our bedroom I bought the Simone Bench in the large chocolate check to put at the foot of our bed. It is gorgeous and very high quality. The fabric is neutral enough without being boring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent choice I bought this for the lobby of my office in black microfiber with mahogany legs. It is sturdy, well made and very attractive. The legs were easy to attach. We have received many compliments on it. It was reasonably priced and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bench...great craftsmanship and upholstery. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the bench. It arrived well before the due date and looked sooo much better than the picture in the catalog! Can you imagine that! It is just great! Thank you so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy bench, great fabric options After pouring over the many fabric choices, I bought the simone bench (on sale) w/cognac legs and chocolate domino fabric last year. It looks great at the foot of my bed and is sturdy enough to sit on. I recommend the bench and would buy it again. It has a simple, elegant design that would fit in w/different decors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Bench This is a great bench. We bought it for extra seating in our living room. The custom fabric is well done. The pattern is centered on the bench. We went with the parchment leg color. They were a bit more white in color than we had anticipated, but it still complimented the fabric and our space. The product description describes this bench to a tee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love my Simone Bench My designer suggested it for me and I bought it. It's perfect for my dining table and perfect for my house. I got the apricot chevron and love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! The Simone bench was purchased to sit in front of a window on a stair landing. The choice of wood finishes on the interesting turned legs allowed a perfect match to the window trim. The fabric selected is contemporary and stylish, Ballard offered a great selection to choose from. Upholstery was done very well... nicely centered, matched and straight. A quality piece for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bench! We purchased the Simone Bench with the Belgrano Ikat Spa fabric and it is gorgeous! The colors in the fabric are a light gray-blue, olive green and brown against a neutral (flax) background. We have it at the foot our our bed and it makes me smile every time I walk in the room! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job! I love my new Simone bench! The custom upholstery job was well done and it was very easy to put the legs on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So lovely! I ordered the Simone bench with Magenta fabric and driftwood legs. It came within 4 weeks of ordering. I have waited a lot longer for inferior products! Especially fast, since they upholstered it to order. I do not agree with other reviewers that say it is light and not very strong. It feels plenty sturdy, and certainly fine for a couple of people to sit on. It's an occasional bench, after all. I am sooo pleased with it! Definitely recommended if you need a hallway bench or you need a good-looking surface that doubles as some emergency seating in your living room!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just What I Was Looking For! I am using this bench in front of den sofa for a comfortable place to put up your feet. I supplied my own fabric and the ordering procedure was simple. My custom Simone bench looks great. The only suggestion I have is that it needs to be a bit heavier as it moves around easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall satisfied Color was a little darker than it was pictured, but i did not get a sample. The bench is low and long and I am using it instead of a coffee table right now. Delivery was slightly longer than anticipated. Overall though, it looks great and is very functional.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rich looking; not heavy enough My husband & I bought to go in front of our sofa. The fabric is very rich and really very nice, as are the legs (I was worried about the color from the online photos, but they do not look off or cheap at all). As others have commented, however, the bench is incredibly light and feels very flimsy. It gets pushed out of place constantly b/c it isn't heavy enough. Overall, it is well worth the money (very inexpensive) and looks like a much more expensive piece of furniture if you don't touch it. I would tell Ballard to beef it up a bit though. For those buying, it probably works great against a wall or foot of the bed. I'm still very happy with it, but it would be perfect if made heavier. I should note that although it feels flimsy, it is apparently not; I have a dog, a 5 year old and a 3 year old that I'm constantly reminding to get off of it, and it hasn't broken yet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice bench This bench is very nice looking and looks more expensive that what I paid, BUT I don't think it is a bench for sitting, it is more of a decoration. The bench seems a little flimsy and I wouldn't have more than one person sit on it, if at all. I'm very happy with it and it looks very nice in front of my window.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty bench Trouble is... I could use it in two different places, at the end of my queen sleigh bed, or as an alternative to my coffee table. Recently had guests with a baby and moved the bench out of the bedroom. Now I like it as much in the living room. It's wonderfully versatile!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great This product looks just like the picture and is well made. I love the fabric we picked out and it looks great at the end of our bed. I will order from Ballard again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my new bench I love my new bench. Fabric was exactly as pictured online and catalogue. The bench is very sturdy. It is not ideal for sitting long periods of time because of the cushion and foam inside. However, it is perfect for the foot of my bed and decorative purposes. Great buy you wont be disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for sitting Purchased for the foot of the bed where we actually sit quite a bit. It looks great but it is too flimsy to sit on regularly. I had to move it into the closet where it won't be used as much.
Date published: 2011-07-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pleased, but not thrilled. Although my bench looks nice I'm not as excited about it as I had hoped. The pearly grey legs that were pictured were delivered a little more flat and the velvet fabric shows every time anything touches it. I'm constantly brushing it with my hand trying to get the grain to all lay the same way but most the time it just looks blahh! Sorry Ballard, not my favorite.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Depends on intended function Like other reviews, I find that this bench lacks sturdiness. However, it will not get a lot of use in my house, as it sits at the foot of my bed and primarily is used to place the clothes that I intend to wear the following day. If you want to use it in an entryway or in the living room, it's not ideal, but if you're just looking for a pretty piece and it will get little use, it's perfect for the price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Style is nice This item sits in our mudroom. Used more for decoration than it does for functionality. It is a very nice looking piece. The fabric is nice however, the frame is poorly made. Our first one had a leg collapse and tore right off the frame which consisted of a particle board material. We opted to have it replaced but I would not use this in an area where you may have people sitting on it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More decorative than functional. When you sit on this bench, the legs wobble. I weigh 120 lbs. & hesitate to sit on it. Wouldn't have purchased it had I known it was decorative instead of functional.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed! I ordered this bench and waited with anticipation for it to arrive. I opened the box, put it together and saw that the fabric has a line in it the entire length of the bench. I assume it was due to the fabric being folded at some point and it just never came out. (I got the canvas sunbrella in dark gray so it really stands out.) I don't understand why the mfg. would not pay attention to that sort of detail, or perhaps they just plain don't care.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very flimsy This bench is poorly made with cheap materials. I placed it at the foot of the bed in a guest room. My guest sat on it to put on her shoes and it cracked. It is purely for show in my opinion, and not to be used. Waste of money.
