Upholstered Couture Chair 4.5 5 44 44
classic chair, nice lines These chairs are a classic, something I imagine I will have for a very long time. They are solidly constructed and look like they would stand up well to daily wear and tear. Also look like they would be easy to upholster in the future when ready for a change of color palettes. The wood is beautiful, and the chair seat is well padded and comfortable. The only negative I would say is that I had them covered in the Suzanne Kasler Linen Blanc fabric, which does not seem as high of a quality as I would have expected for the price. Also, the quality of the upholstery job was average at best. This was a surprise to me because I have ordered other chairs from here in the past that were upholstered exceptionally well with beautiful fabrics. April 13, 2011
upholstered contour chair These chairs are pretty but not for everyday use. They are showing wear already. April 23, 2011
love my new chairs fabric is beautiful... and quality seems great! I love them and think I will order more December 4, 2013
The upholstered couture chair i changed out my kitchen chairs for the upholstered couture is the right height, size and having a variety of slipcovers makes it perfect for a kitchen. also, it is far more comfortable than a rattan or hard wood back chair. July 24, 2011
Attractive modern-looking chair I bought six of these chairs to replace my old dining room chairs. They are attractive, comfortable and modern-looking. I ordered a variety of swatches so that I could choose the color that would fit with my decor. It was a great way to update my dining room without buying an entire new set. March 16, 2011
Lightweight but sturdy and comfortable. Love these chairs in the Ikat fabric and they fit perfectly around my old glass table top. May 3, 2014
They are perfect! What a lift these chairs have given to my kitchen! They are comfortable and not too large. I can fit 6 chairs at a table where only4 previously fit, without sacrificing anything. I recommend putting felt pads on the feet for moving ease, and so floors don't scratch - otherwise perfect! November 16, 2013
beautiful chair These chairs are beautiful and add so much to the look of my dining room. They are sturdy (I've stood on it to hang blinds) and very comfortable. I have no complaints at all. March 16, 2011
True to color, nice fabric. Washed before putting on the chairs and had to iron the covers. The fabric is very nice and feels like it will weather two active and messy children. March 8, 2014
LOVE these chairs... perfect for my dining room! When I purchased a new dining table, I didn't want the matching wood chairs and decided to go with Ballard's courture chair, and I'm so glad I did! I selected the Catana Floral Chocolate fabric and it is just gorgeous! It's also nice that you can select the color for the chair legs. Highly recommend these chairs. July 20, 2013
overall i am satisfied Overall the chairs arrived in good shape. My only complaint is that the fabric around the legs was not always finished / attached well, and will probably fray over time. February 1, 2014
Perfect! The chairs are the right size and finish and the fabric is perfect for our dining room. We ordered a few swatches before placing our final order and it was a wise move. The finished product is all we thought it would be. February 23, 2013
Quality plus! These chairs exceeded my expectation! They are beautiful, well made and were packaged and shipped so that the skirting wasn't even wrinkled! I am using them with my dining room table, but they would be great as an extra chair anywhere! May 30, 2012
I had the couture chair covered in custom fabric. It came out lovely - perfectly tailored. Very satisfied with my purchase. Beautiful tailoring, great customer service and the packing and care in delivery were superior. Excellence of the Ballard company. June 2, 2012
looks great My new chairs look fabulous in my dining room. I ordered them in the Sinclair Damask, and was a bit worried when I realized it was an outdoor fabric. When they arrived, I was extremely pleased with the fabric quality and appearance. In the end it was a good mistake as they will be easier to clean, and will not fade as quickly in my sunny dining room. Also, the chairs arrived almost a month sooner than expected. This was my first purchase from Ballard and I am very happy! November 5, 2011
A comfortable chair. I ordered two chairs to be covered and the result was wonderful. Not only are the chairs comfortable, but the fabric is beautiful and the job was well done. May 10, 2012
VERY nice fabric quality! I ordered this chair with custom fabric from the options available, which perfectly matched the room for my daughter. The time it took to get the chair was in line with expectations (although I had secretly hoped it would come faster), but when I received it I was extremely impressed with the thick and heavy quality of the fabric, and the professional job they did. It is truly a custom piece, and I was VERY pleased. It matched my room beautifully! (See photo) October 18, 2013
remarkable speed of delivery i couldn't believe how quickly these custom chairs arrived. for the money the are great chairs. very good value, and i got during the upholstery sale. the fit and finish i would say is a 7 out of 10. Not exceptional, but very good for the money. November 13, 2011
FABULOUS! These chairs are fabulous! They were so much more than i expected. The quality exceeds the price paid. I had ordered four and after i received them i ended up ordering two more. November 4, 2011
Style and Comfort! I was sure to scotchgard the beautiful fabric before use. I knew these chairs were going to be gorgeous but I was surprised by the superior comfort. The Haley blue fabric looks great with the dark wood legs. Each chair was expertly packed and arrived in perfect condition. July 1, 2011
Very comfortable and very stylish I was concerned about buying chairs online without having the opportunity to sit in them before buying. I decided to take a chance and am pleased to report that they are not only elegant, but very comfortable. They are also very lightweight and easy to move around. April 7, 2011
Great addition to our home office! Ordered this chair in "Casbah" fabric and it is beautiful! Not only does it look great but it's also comfortable enough to sit in for long periods of time. Deifintely worth the wait May 13, 2011
It's a wonderful chair I looked everywhere for a nice fabric chair, and I am so happy that I ordered this one. The colors in the fabric are great, the chair is light weight enough to be easy to move in and out. The style is current. It's exactly what I was looking for. August 30, 2013
Beautiful Chairs Couldn't be happier with these chairs. I was nervous about ordering online, but I was pleasantly surprised with the way these chairs came out. Workmanship was good and the fabric I picked is amazing. I would definitely recommend these chairs. February 24, 2013
Great chairs We are very pleased with our new chairs. They arrived well packaged with no damage to them. The fabric and wood color is exactly as expected. They are comfortable and look elegant. We have ordered two more as we like them so much! February 21, 2013
Love these chairs I ordered 6 of these chairs to go around my dining room table and I am thrilled with how they turned out. They are super comfortable and look great. I love that you can customize it and there are so many choices of fabrics. We chose a microfiber fabric which will hopefully prevent them from getting stained by the inevitable red wine spill! January 23, 2013
Perfect! Met my expectations. Arrived early. Customer service was excellent. Will shop with you soon. January 14, 2013
Chair arrived promtly. I ordered this chair in Balboa Ikat. After having ordered from other companies, the chair arrived much quicker than I expected. The design of the fabric is centered correctly on the chair and the fabric seems to be of good quality. I am very pleased with my purchase. It looks great in my home! September 30, 2012
It finishes the room. The quality is excellent! I had a small room that we made into an office. I purchased two of these chairs and your benedetta round side table. The grouping finishes the room beautifully! August 27, 2012
Beautiful Chair I received the chair and love it. The custom fabric options were fantastic and exactly as shown. The quality for the price is fair. Another note Ballards packages their stuff really, really well (unlike many other companies) June 28, 2012
