Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great basic i bought a plain linen pillow as a throw for a paisley linen was a bit plain, so i affixed some old pins to it (gold and amber...)..looks great! it just needed a little touch of color :-) the quality of the pillow is quite good..stitched properly and just the right amount of "poof"..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, personal, and a great value. This is the fourth monogrammed pillow I've ordered from Ballards, and I am completely satisfied with all. Two were for me, and two were gifts, and the recipients loved them. The monogramming is lovely and the fabric of excellent quality. Shipping was very fast. All in all, a wonderful accessory at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful quality!!! These pillows are simply beautiful and for the quality and price, you can not beat them! I got the toffee check with brown monogramming and it turned out great with my leather slipper chairs and burlap pillows I already had on them. I can't wait to order more of these pillows for my bedroom and guest bedroom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love, love, love these pillows These pillows are a great buy. They are made extremely well and the monogramming looks wonderful. The shipping was timely and they were packaged well. I am always satisfied with Ballard's products, and these pillows are keepers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love your pillows! I order approximately 12 pillows for my friend and myself. Quality is outstanding and monogramming adds that extra and the best thing about the monogramming is that it is free. Most other mail order companies charge at least $5.00 or $6.00. I did have one pillow case that I needed to send back because of a flaw. The order was handled with speed and the return was also quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT ACCENT i chose the natural linen with a silvery-grey monogram of my husbands and my initials to sit in a chair in our bedroom... It looks wonderful and is a perfect little accent piece. The thread color for the monogram is almost metallic and it stands out nicely, while still being it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I ordered in crimson with tan monogram (single letter). Love it! It's mixed in with a variety of patterns on our sectional sofa. This pillow (with the monogram) is the finishing touch. Have received many compliments. Haven't had to wash it yet, so I'll be curious to see how it holds up, but it seems very sturdy and durable (important in our house of two young boys)! Also love the down insert. (Much better than other inserts of lesser quality...does not become lumpy).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Antoher great pillow from Ballard Cannot beat the price for these pillow covers with inserts. Had to wait a while on this one since it was on back order but well worth the wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty and affordable. I love to change my pillow covers from time to time to freshen up the room or for a change of season. Ballard has great pillow covers and pillow inserts at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, style and quality. What a wonderful offering of colors and fabrics. It makes it so easy to pull a room together and give it a custom design look. I purchased 2 each of the blue linen stripe and the indigo blue twill and am very pleased with both. I have 3 more on backorder. I wish there was a Ballard Design store near me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accent and added comfort the 12x20 pillow adds a touch of color to a high hardback dining armchair while adding needed cushioning for comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pillow has a classic look. This pillow sits on my sun room chaise and it adds color and interest to the chair. The monogram adds a touch of class. I also have a 12x18 with my husband's monogram on a different pillow. Great additions to the overall design of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The oversized burlaps pillows and burlap bed skirt add charm and distinction to my bed ensemble. The over sized burlap pillows and burlap bed skirt add charm and distinction to my bed ensemble. The simplicity and texture of the burlap pillows and bed skirt accent the richness and intricate detail of the ivory bed coverlet and pillows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pillows Wonderful pillows and great price (purchased on sale). The fabric and quality of the down pillow insert are superior. Comfortable and look great in my large sectional couch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pillow Covers I absolutely adore Ballard Designs pillow covers and they have become a decorating staple in my home. My last purchase of 20 inch twill covers in Crimson were purchased along with the Couture Chair slipcover, also in Crimson, to pull together a bedroom update. Great quality and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality fabric, construction, & very nice monogram... I'm pleased with the quality of the linen fabric & also very pleased with the monogramming. The craftsmanship is exceptional...not even loose threads! I neglected to get a sample of the hemp linen before ordering & it wasn't the best shade for where I originally intended to use it, but it is working on another chair nicely. I hope to be ordering more pillows in the future.
Date published: 2011-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pillow! I purchased a burlap pillow in 12x20 and had "relax" embroidered in brown (silly, I know, but I like a quirky accent here and there). It is on my coventry bench in my kitchen and I just love it! Somebody had commented on the insert not filling the pillow out, that was not a problem with mine. The burlap was a great weight, nice and hefty, not that lightweight type you find in some of the retail stores. I will likely come back for a couple more in the future.
Date published: 2011-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and Quality I ordered the 12x20 monogrammed pillow in the chocolate velvet and southern red thread, and absolutely love it! I was really pleased with the quality, especially considering the price. This pillow is a great value! The insert gives the pillow a great shape and holds its shape well. Overall, very impressed.
Date published: 2011-03-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pillows! I have pillows custom made all of the time but you cannot beat the price of this pillow and insert! Quality is great and natural linen is beautiful! My seamstress would have charged me $30 + just for the labor for this pillow and monogram would have been $10 !
Date published: 2011-03-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product quality and workmanship were beautiful I recently ordered a basic Ballard pillow case and insert and had it monogramed. When my pillow arrived, I was thrilled, it was perfect. I have had pillows custom made at much higher prices, and my Ballard pillow stands out among them as the best looking one. I have already raved about your products to several friends and will continue to do so. I also LOVE your weekly specials. Thank you for making my suburban home a little less cookie cutter and much more personal!
