Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Chair, long wait, but well worth the wait... I highly recommend the Stratford Chair. There was a long wait for the chair more than I was told at the beginning of my purchase, but once you receive the chair you will love it. The people who delivered the chairs to my home were also very friendly and helpful with set up of chairs and removal of boxes. Chair is very comfortable and well made. I chose the checked material and is also of good quality. In my case though, the finished product did not arrive in a couple weeks as originally told but took more like six months. Hence the four star rating for the wait. March 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect selection for the room! We purchased the chair for our bedroom and it fits the bill. The workmanship and look are true to form. And the size was perfect for our master bedroom. We had to wait a bit longer than expected for the product but when it arrived, we were pleased. January 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ralph Lauren at a Great Price I love these chairs. I have ordered several things from Ballards. I like to send them my fabric for a custom look. These chairs I had done in a plaid for my home in Sun Valley. They look fabulous and give the place a Ralph Lauren western look at an affordable price! I will definitely do more custom furniture with Ballard. July 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by So comfortable! I couldn't be happier with my recent purchase. The quality and comfort of the chair is great! It is honestly one of the most comfortable chairs I've ever sat in - my friends and family agree! Ballard Designs was great working with me throughout this process. I had to change the delivery address since I was moving and they were able to easily accomidate! May 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Chair! I ordered the Stratford Chair in the Calisto Stripe fabric, and absolutely love it. The chair is well constructed, and a perfect size in my formal living room. It will only be used as an occasional chair, but it is very comfortable. The fabric is nice quality, and the overall craftsmanship and design on the chair seems superior. It also arrived almost three weeks early, and the delivery process was very professional. I have always been a loyal customer of a similar popular catalog store, but I think I may have found a new favorite in Ballard. :-) March 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great beautifully proportioned chair I ordered this for a bedroom, with the aviary fabric. It's a beautiful chair especially for a compact space. Seat is not very deep, a tall person would probably be uncomfortable. October 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This chair works perfectly in our den. We are thrilled with our Stratford chair. It is perfectly proportioned and well-constructed. The nailhead trim is nicely done and we couldn't be more pleased with the upholstery and the COM process. This is our most comfortable reading chair and currently the favorite spot in our home.
