Rated 4 out of 5 by babs2750 Great little bench
I received this X-Bench about a month ago and I am not disappointed. I ordered it in the Indochine Ikat Stone and it was as expected....a great neutral color that goes great with the shower curtain in the guest bathroom. The bench seems sturdy enough, but I don't know how much weight it will hold so if that is a concern you might want to talk to customer service. The bench is the right height for a higher vanity....not the lower ones that many people have in their older homes. It was upholstered very well, but the cording is a little wavy. That does not bother me, but if you are a perfectionist you might not like it. You can't beat the price for a piece of furniture that is not only attractive but functional as well.

I couldn't be more pleased with the two x-benches I ordered from Ballard. I had been searching for this particular bench style for quite sometime, so I was very happy to find that you offered them. From the choice of fabric and finish detail to the bench design- great quality at an affordable price! The only drawback was the time it took to receive the benches, but they were well worth the wait. The product was shipped in sturdy boxes, nothing to put together. Just slipped them out of the box and placed them where I wanted them. I wouldn't hesitate to place another similar order with Ballard!

I love the X-Bench! We put it in our library, and its fantastic to either sit / perch on (cocktails) or to re-locate to near our couch to put our feet up on.

We chose Sunbrella material for the two X benches we purchased to match the 11' umbrella we also purchased from Ballard as they will be used both inside and out. They are comfortable either as a seat or as a foot rest, look great and were well upholstered. So far, so good for both the benches and the umbrella!

Rated 4 out of 5 by hyatthome The overall product is beautiful and serves me well at my built in make up counter.
The only downside was the plastic gliders on bottom of legs. They instantly scratched my wood floor. So I had to purchase felt stick on gliders to prevent further damage. The seat is well sized and perfect height. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucybone Great fabric & great bench
This was the perfect bench for our custom cabinet/desk for our child's room. It had a small footprint and could be tucked away. it also is very sturdy and can stand up to a 9 year old boy.

Love the finished product. My fabric choice really adds a dash of spice in the room. I am pleased that the bench is so substantial. It should stand up to the all the stress my family can inflict!

Rated 4 out of 5 by merlesh great deal
I ordered an x bench to go between two windows in our bedroom and am very happy with upholstery job and the bench. IMO, the seat of the bench is a little deeper than I'd prefer. I would like a more rectangular vs. square shape, but small price to pay for a great price. Great Ballard purchase (as usual).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Delawarelady A disappointment
I sent my own fabric in for the benches and Ballard did a poor upholstery job. The fabric is wrinkled and the upholstery job is below par.
I did use this same fabric on another chair (and it was upholstered by another company) and I did not have the same issue. So, I can only conclude that this problem with the wrinkled fabric was due to poor workmanship at Ballard.
My advice: look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jannygirl This bench is adorable! Great value!
This bench is adorable! I ordered a swatch of the fabric first to make sure it matched my paint color and when it arrived (earlier than anticipated) the color and look were perfect. I ordered for a bathroom vanity area and it just makes the space come together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rgoelman Perfect for my kitchen desk
Perfect size, very comfortable and it was in perfect condition on arrival. Sturdy and fits perfectly under my desk when not in use. Great buy especially for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by student Exactly as pictured.
I ordered this bench in the canvas stripe, was informed it would ship within 4 weeks of order but received it in 2 weeks! Was so excited to get it . It was larger than I expected but that's ok too. It is beautiful and is currently being used as seating for a desk-it is very comfortable and stylish. Have already received many compliments!! I would recommend purchasing this and will probably order another later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KASNYC Excellent bench for the $
I was pleasantly surprised by how well my two x-benches turned out with COM. For the price, I really thought they would be poor to mediocre, but I wasn't willing to spend $600+ per bench as some other sources charge. While the craftsmanship is not A+, they are better than expected. Highly recommended for the $.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveHomeDecor78 Love the product but a tad disappointed
I do love my new x bench, but I was disappointed when on one of the corners, there was a small hole. The special order fabric I chose looks perfect in my room, but I am just hoping the hole doesn't get bigger in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by profgimlet custom furniture at non custom prices
These benches are the epitome about what is great about ballard. custom furniture at reasonable prices. I think the other reviewer failed to understand that custom means it takes time for the fabric to be ordered and the item to be upholstered. I think mine took 2-3 months but I knew that when I ordered them. If you want something now, you don't order custom. Ballard also offers free swatches of fabric so I ordered a bunch, picked the one that worked and everything was exactly as I expected. computer monitors often distort colors so that you can get free samples is another thing that makes these great. I ordered a chocolate brown velvet and they were perfect (and the brown was exactly as pictured)

Rated 2 out of 5 by nooklady Deceptive Colors
The bench is nice, but the colors on their website are completely off from the actual color. Just be forewarned that "apple green" is really more of a "sage green." It's bland without much punch.
Also, it took them FIVE months to send us this bench. Really unacceptable in my opinion.
