Upholstered Couture Chair is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice chair I bought this chair for a small desk in my husband's office. It came relatively fast for a custom piece, the fabric was a nice quality and upholstery was done well. The chair is a smaller scale and my husband feels it's too small for working at his desk (he's a tall guy), so we are moving it to a guestroom as an accent chair and getting him a proper desk chair. I think this chair is great for dining room, accent chair or a woman's desk or someone of a smaller stature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with the result The chairs are done in my own fabric. Even though the pattern was large, the fabric is matched perfectly on all 4 chairs. I couldn't be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chair looks great and is comfortable. I love the chair and the way it looks. I am disappointed that I could not use scotchguard on the fabric. My chair is in a high traffic area and we have 3 children, so I'm not sure I would have bought it if I would have known this ahead of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these chairs! Chairs arrived earlier than expected and were in excellent packing. Fabric and upholstering job were great. The seats are a little lower and not as firm as I expected, but very nice and recommended!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value This chair is a great value. I chose the quilted white upholstery. But, although this fabric looks great now, I may have chosen a different color since it seems like it will stain easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was exactly what we needed We were looking for dining room chairs for our vacation rental property. We needed something quick, comfortable and sturdy. These fit the bill. Wish they came in some other fabric choices and were a bit more cushioned but they will suit our purposes perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality chair for the price I bought this chair for a desk chair. It is very comfortable and a great size. It arrived with a small ding on one leg, but not significant enough to try and deal with shipping it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chair fine, fabric not I think the chair itself is just fine. However, I was extremely disappointed with the fabric that I chose from Ballard. The color was completely different than what I saw on the website. (I looked at it from two different computer screens) My advice is to order the fabric swatch. I'm now stuck with a chair that doesn't match my room at all, and need to have it reupholstered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I received this chair yesterday and was so disappointed in this chair's size. The measurements were given on the website and although it sounded like a standard sized chair, it looks so small compared to my existing dining chairs. The fabric was beautiful, the legs were gorgeous, but the back of the chair is not padded and I can see the metal poking thru the fabric at some point. It's so narrow, I think it would be better suited for a make up table or small desk. I'm happy that I only purchased one chair to see if I'd like it because it looked too small at my kitchen table that is NOT massive. It's now in the corner of a guest room and looks too small there, too. This chair would have been so nice had the seat been a little wider and the back been plumped up with a little more padding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable and too tall I had high hopes for this chair and bought 2 stools with matching fabric a few months earlier. I find the chair to be too high in the back and the back is very straight. So much so, it requires a pillow to be comfortable. It's very hard and very straight up and down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful height. Seat too low! Pretty but poor. Chair seats are so low you feel like you need a booster seat to reach your table. My table is 30 inches tall which is standard and when you sit on the chair your elbows can't rest on the table. Dimensions not as published on website.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from upholstered contour chair These chairs are pretty but not for everyday use. They are showing wear already.
