Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beyond my expectations The quality is excellent. The photo doesn't do justice to the finish on the wood - quietly elegant design with rustic finish - which goes great in my cabin. Seating is comfortable and I already had a soft cushy pillow to add which made it perfect. Paired the chair with the Laurel Side Table in Antique White. I now have a beautiful but cozy reading area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful and Comfortable I love this chair. It is simple and elegant. It is also quite comfortable - very deep. January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Chair - Fabulous Service! Love, Love, Love this chair! Have been thinking about buying for a while and couldn't get it out of my mind so had to have it! It is a perfect compliment to another Louis XV style chair and ottoman I have in same room. The delivery was truly "white glove" with expert care in unpacking and placing in my living room! I had a problem when initially placing my order but Ballard's customer service was fantastic in their efforts to resolve! Have been shopping Ballard's for years and own several pieces of furniture, rugs, lighting, etc. Always get compliments on my Ballard's purchases. Couldn't be happier - is very comfortable, well made and no "chemical" smell like you often get with new furniture today! Thanks Ballard!!! August 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great asset to my home. This chair is comfortable, very roomy, heavy, constructed well. Easy to clean. I got the brown and have cats and 1 dog and the hair vacuums right off which I was a little concerned about but pleasantly surprised. Would go with any decor. Nice thick cushion. Other reviews were concerned about the pillow not being big enough. I chose a brown and golden, small rectangular ( 12" wide 19" long) instead of the matching brown, as to give some color and it is perfect for male or female, large or small. Thank you. June 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous and Unexpectedly Comfy! I ordered two of the chairs in the rich chocolate color and couldn't be happier. Truthfully, I bought them because I loved the shape, scale and materials and didn't expect that they would be so functional. Excellent surprise! They are as comfy as they are stylish--I would add a lumbar pillow in another fabric to "fill them in" a bit--they are big! Love these--great packaging and great quality! May 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely style fits anywhere in the house I just love this chair, I've had them covered in each bedrooms decor and what style it adds to the room. December 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased! This chair (I bought 2 of them) exceeded my expectations... good quality, design and comfort. The generous proportions are no exagerration. Felt it was a good price/value. My only "wish" would have been to be able to choose from different fabrics. However, I am very pleased w the look of the fabric (light) that it came in. March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is stunning and comfortable! The Sofia chair is gorgeous, substantial, and in addition, very comfortable! The unique style and shape adds interest to my family room, above and beyond what a regular chair design could have provided. December 3, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by lovely design, scratchy fabric, pillow is a small square Very nice looking chair. Fabric, however, is really scratchy, almost like burlap sack material. Hoping it will soften with wear (although it's so scratchy, no one really sits in it yet). The pillow it comes with is a 15" square, NOT the rectangular one that is in some of the pictures. The square pillow looks too small for the chair, as it doesn't fill the seat back. You'll need to add more squares (or find your own rectangular pillow) to make it look right. All in all, it's an OK chair. Not fabulous, but for the price, good enough. September 5, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice looking chair! This is a lovely chair, and pretty much looks just like the photograph on the website. (... although the wood definitely has no shine to it.) The dimensions are mentioned on the website too, but I guess I was still surprised at the large size of the chair. It's so wide it could almost be a love seat! The quality is good but it is a little more 'rustic' than I was expecting. Those are the things to look out for... But overall I am very happy with my nice-looking and comfortable chair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charming ! I purchased two of these chairs for my living room and love them. The fabric is a nice quality and the wood frames are very sturdy. The only flaw would be the back support. I added another 20" down filled pillow to the chair and I love the look. Overall these are beautiful occasional chairs and I am very happy about my purchase. They are packed so well that it took me about one and a half hours to cut up all of the cardboard and styrafoam. But they arrived in perfect condition. January 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! We purchased the Sophia Chair and the Sophia Settee and are thrilled. The looks is very beautiful in our living room. As others had written before I purchased it, the cushions could be a little more "cushion-y", but it's still great and over time I will probably have them restuffed. But for the price, great purchase! We LOVE Ballard Designs and recently purchased the Catherine Rug as well. November 9, 2011
