Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 64 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Functional, but not particularly nice. The product took a very long time to get here, although we did receive an apology from Ballard. We ordered the cube chocolate brown. The fabric is a bit cheesy-looking and feeling. We've been using it for about a month as a spot in the bedroom to sit while putting shoes on, etc., and it's already developed a bit of a smashed mushroom look. It is, however, soft and comfortable to sit on. May 14, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by better as a seat than a footstool We wanted to use the cube as an extra footstool or side table but we had to take the legs off to put our feet up. Other than that, it is as expected. May 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Vanity Stool My new apartment only has one bathroom and two roommates. I got this stool in the grey Malabar ikat pattern to go in my room and I absolutely love it! It's the perfect size and adds a nice splash of pattern in my bedroom. The quality is nice and the turnaround was exactly what they told me it would be. It was delivered in perfect condition, too! I highly recommend! March 29, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cube nice, fabric not so nice I ordered this for my bathroom. Service was excellent and communication with manufacturer was too. I'm not very happy with the quality of the fabric, however. It is thin and pretty 'cheesy'. The pattern looks stamped on and the colors are dull--the sample pictures online looked much richer. It's too bad about the quality of the fabric, as the workmanship looks very good. March 29, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy with my cube! I ordered this cube as seating for a desk that was moved to my bedroom. It is a perfect size to tuck right under the desk without taking up a lot of space, and it is comfortable. You may be able to find cheaper cubes elsewhere, but I love the fabric options and the quality is nice. I gave it only 4/5 stars because I wish that it opened up and had storage because I am always looking for additional hidden storage. March 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful cubes I sent in my own material and got 3 of these made to match my existing window treatments. They are absolutely beautiful and so well made. The cubes are comfortable as a little stool and perfect height for an ottoman. Great deal too and the customer service at Ballard is amazing. I felt like I was talking to a friend! My room looks so much nicer with these additions! February 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful I sent in my own upholstery fabric. The directions on how to do this were easy to follow. The cubes came out beautiful and I couldn't be happier. I have bought other products from Ballard Designs, the customer service and quality are wonderful. February 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great item I needed something small but sturdy to sit on on my closet and this is perfect! January 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great addition to our room! I bought the cube on a 'whim' because we needed an ottoman for a chair in the family room...and picked out very busy pattern because all solids --- and actually didn't expect to really like it.. WOW! First of all, it arrived weeks before indicated (great service!) is well made, and the fabric matches everything perfectly. Not only is it a great ottoman, it is really comfortable to sit on.... LOVE IT! December 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It is exactly what I had hoped. The cube is very handy and useful and is the perfect size for the area where I use it. It's lightweight enough to move easily when not being used, but it's also sturdy, and the padding on top is very comfortable, whether the cube is being used as a seat or a foot rest. The upholstery I chose is brown document, and it looks great with our brown leather sofa and love seat, just as I had hoped. December 16, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by It is really heavy, but functional. I was surprised that the staples were crooked and the upholstery was not the best I have seen. But not bad for the money. I wouldn't pay any more for this one. December 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lot of design in a small box! I recently had some upholstery fabric left over from another completed fabric project. It was a fun and funky fabric; but there was not that much of it left to work with. I needed some footstools for a casually chic room that I was working on; and the fun leftover fabric went a long way in making just the design statement that the room needed; without taking up too much space. The upholstered cubes are so versatile in that they are strong enough to use as additional seating for a party; and small enough to serve as a good foot rest in a room that is not that large. Grouped together, they made a great base for a glass coffee table! The price was easy on the pocketbook too! December 15, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by I picked a new fabric design it was upholstered beautifully I really like this upholstered cube, it looks good and very well made. I have a bad back, had it had more cushion for me it would have been perfect. . November 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the right height and firmness. I needed seating in a small library. This cube fit at the end of the shelf perfectly without taking up much room. It is the right height to get up and down without effort, which is important since many of our clients are elderly. I was afraid it would sink down too much when sat on, but the cushion is firm enough to hold its shape and height. It is exactly what I needed. November 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Cube I have designed with these cubes for years now. They are extremely durable, hardy and reasonably priced. I have a set that has been in my main living room and have withstood the test of time. Go and have fun and get one custom made for your home. September 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vanity Stool I bought this during the recent upholstery event and was given an approximate ship date of October 11, 2011. Imagine my surprise when it was sitting in my vestibule last Friday, over two weeks early! The size is perfect and it is comfortable and well-made. Having already purchased a chair for this room two years ago, I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. September 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased and happy with my choice. I am pleased with my purchase of the upholstered cube. I actually bought two. The quality of construction is very good, the cubes are solid and the size is perfect. The material I chose to have the cubes upholstered in is very nice and I believe it will be very durable. Overall, a very nice product. August 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the wait It took a few more weeks than I would have thought to receive the cube, but the finished product is beautiful and was well worth the wait. It's comfortable, and the fabric is gorgeous. Given the huge impact it has had on my living room decor, this product is a great value. August 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful fabric I ordered this cube for our guest bathroom for a seating area and it looks so great! It looks very elegant yet practical. I ordered the fabric in "Arabesque" and it is very nice. The only down side to the cube is that I wished it was firmly padded a bit more with a deeper cushion. July 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great versatile piece! well made, versatile and looks great as extra seating! would recommend! July 5, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by They look great under my sofa table I love them. They look great under my sofa table, fits perfect. I love that I have more seating now if I need it. June 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing custom piece for the price! This piece is the perfect size and price to "play decorator" and give a room a pop of pattern and/or color. I ordered in the Haley Blue and it looks lovely - wood tone feet and fabric looked identical in person to the online preview. I am using mine under a small desk and although it has a small footprint, it is quite strudy and comfortable as a seat. It took several weeks to arrive but it was worth the wait! June 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes for GREAT extra seating I am thrilled with these new additions to my living room. I was hesitant to order an upholstered product online, but after ordering the fabric samples first I was pleased with the quality and vibrant colors and that cliched the deal. These cubes fit snugly under a console table so are perfect for small spaces and easily slide out for seating. Couldn't be happier! May 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable, classy stools I ordered two cubes to add extra seating in my great room. The cubes have beautiful velvet fabric. They are comfortable, classy looking and are light weight enough to lift and move around the room. May 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by cube chair I LOVE THE TWO CUBE chairs I had made with my fabric. They look great in our living room. May 12, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by crooked leg The stool came in with one obviously crooked leg, which allows trhe stool to wobble when sitting on it. May 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by just what I needed I purchased the Upholstered Cube to use as a vanity seat in my master bath, but it is very versatile and it could be used just about anywhere in my home. The cube's modern lines fit my decor well and I am very happy with the fabric I chose. April 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! Love these! They are absolutely beautiful! We're very pleased and will definitely reccommend Ballard to all our friends! March 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great purchase I bought two cubes and I love them. They are nice and firm to use for seating. I also like the customization. I bought extra material for curtains. March 16, 2011
