Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great desk/office chair Just received my upholstered parsons chair with casters and it is beautiful and comfortable - the perfect chair for both my office desk and table! I ordered it in the black and off white sinclair damask fabric....the fabric has a great feel, looks great on the finished chair and overall just gorgeous! :-D I look forward to using this chair for many years to come. April 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly as ordered I ordered the chair in domino green; this is the second one I ordered in that fabric and it looks the same as the one I ordered a year ago. Nice workmanship and was delivered exactly as estimated. January 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Desk Chair I use this chair in my office at home and it is perfect! Love the casters and the armless feature for being close to the desk and still able to open drawers! I feel it is priced right too. Nice value! January 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great chair I ordered this as a desk chair and I love it. The casters roll really well and it looks great. Thanks!! July 31, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too much money for the quality... The fabric is what I expected, however, the weight of the chair is very light and tips over easily. The casters also are below average because they fall out all the time. I would have expected better quality for the price. January 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love these chairs, they are beautiful and well made. I love these chairs. They are beautiful and as with everything that I have ever bought from Ballard, they are well made and of really great quality. Also, I received them weeks before they told me they would ship and so I had them for my big family Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you so much! I will buy from you again. December 16, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by A good value for the quality with one exception. This chair arrived earlier than expected and that was a pleasant surprise. The proportions of the chair are good and for the quality it is a great price. The one issue I had was with the quality of the upholstery job. I have used this particular beautiful linen print fabric before for window treatments and was aware of the large pattern repeat. On this particular chair because of the way the pattern was applied you think it looks like it was applied upside down, when in fact it was just the way it was upholstered. With an accent pillow on the seat the problem was solved. I think that more attention to where and how the pattern repeats would have resulted in a chair that was stunning instead of one where you question whether or not it was correctly upholstered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The parsons chair is beautiful, and comfortable. I have longed for this chair for ages. It now sits at my kitchen desk area, decked out in the most gorgeous fabric imaginable. It's well made and comortable, which doesn't always go hand in hand. The casters make it easy to get in and out of, and are gentle on the newly installed hardwood floor. I am so pleased with my chair and, as always, pleased with Ballards service. Thank you so much for completing my new kitchen desk area in style! September 16, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not very well made The chair seat seems very flimsy for the money I paid and the fabric is very stiff. There is a squeak in the seat and I believe the wood is perhaps pressed board instead of hardwood. The seat is not very comfy. On a positive side, it rolls super easily and matches my bathroom. July 11, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by overall, very happy with this puchase this purchase was a good choice for my needs, not sure at first because the swatch was a more vibrant color (camel velvet) than the chair was, in addition it is pretty lightweight for the price. I have this in my office and it looks good with the style of desk I have and does give more manuerving room than a traditional office chair. July 5, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Looks Nice But Only Fair Quality & Function I contemplated buying this chair for a long time. Wanted it to use it in conjunction with Ballard's 3 drawer desk. Although the chair was shown pictured with the desk many times in the catalogs and on-line, they are not really a good fit for each other. Even with the castors, the chair is too low to sit comfortably at the desk. Because my body sits so low in the chair and my hand and arm rest higher on the desk, my hand constantly goes to sleep while using the computer mouse. I suspect the chair would also be too low to use it comfortably at a dining room table. Had the chair been an inch or two higher, I would have given it a 3 star rating. As another reviewer mentioned, the chair is very lightweight and it doesn't feel particularly sturdy but when using it as a desk chair, that does make it easy to scoot around. Overall, I'm disappointed in this purchase from the function and quality aspect. March 26, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by I like the fabric color and weight. I like the fabric but found the chair backs too short. March 19, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by A well made chair It took a long time to get but the product is well made. It's a sturdy and the upholostery is great. March 17, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Just OK Parsons chairs are everywhere now. I ordered this one because the price was right and it was on casters so I could use it at a desk. I was disappointed by the quality of the chair when it arrived. VERY light in weight and just doesn't feel like it will hold up for long. I hope I am wrong! March 16, 2011
