Parsons Chair Slipcover - Ballard Essential is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you tell my love for Ballard Designs?! I love my new parson chair slip covers (only ordered 2 but will be ordering 4 more), my drapes and light fixture too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! I just received my Parson chair and Slipcover in Natural Linen. The chair is very well constructed and the fabric is a very heavy weight and great quality. It took me a bit to get the slipcover on because the fit is very snug (which is good). I would love to see a video of the Ballard team actually putting one of these on- it is a full contact sport!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & Perfect I ordered several swatches and decided to purchase 6 covers and 2 additional covers personalized in chamois. Material is thick, high quality, beautiful. The color of the material on my screen was slightly different than the actual color of the material. Recommend ordering swatches before investing in the slipcovers. We selected chamois which is a taupe, light beige. It's the perfect color for our dining room. The slip covers are beautiful but came wrinkled from being folded and shipped. I steamed them twice and will need to do another time so the folds are crisp and lay down. For the personalization, the website does not show what all the letters look like in the different fonts. We took a chance with the letter "w" and are very happy. Also, I purchased the 2 additional slip covers for a couple parson chairs we already had (from another brand) and they fit perfectly. We intend to use the extra chairs when we extend our table. Highly recommend these slip covers. Note- 1 slip cover had double stiching at hem and another had a slight stain (dirty from manufacture?). I'm working on spot cleaning it and the stain is coming out. It wasn't worth it for us to exchange them. You can't see the double stitching. Highly recommend these slip covers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Slipcover! Id been using my parsons chairs without a slipcover for several years. After a major reno I also wanted to update my DR look and did so with the slipcovers. PERFECTO! The black checked covers fit perfectly, were easy to get on and SO changed the look! I was a little hesitant for fear they would be slightly short , as some people have complained. Not a problem for me, they skim the floor at a perfect length. The only small disappointment,which I certainly live with, is that I thought the covers were black and WHITE check. Rather it is black and a sort of taupey, very NOT white color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too small for our chairs, but excellent product. We returned this item because it was too small for our chair, but would recommend the product. Please confirm when our credit card is credited. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit, quality and style Initially, I purchased the off white twill, which fits the chairs perfectly and is very durable but the color was not practical for our busy kitchen. So, I ordered the small black check and we love them! The fit is perfect and the pattern/color are much better suited to daily use, occasional spills, etc. It has given our kitchen a fresh, crisp update. They were on sale too and are a great value for the price. Highly recommend!
