Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word...FABULOUS! From the fabric to the fit to the color to the quality...FABULOUS! This was for the vanity chair in our teenage daughter's room. We added her initial on the back which elevated it to a whole new level. Thanks Ballard!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like it was reupholstered This slipcover is a perfect fit. Very tight to get onto the chair. This makes for a tight fit and not one that loosens with use. The piping also adds to the look of reupholstery and not slipcover looking. The basketweave fabric is very sturdy and pretty at the same time. The monogram is a perfect little addition to the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems good quality I ordered both linen and cotton slipcovers. I was pleased with the weight of the fabric. It has a nice tight fit on the chair and does not shift with use. Ironing the wrinkles out took awhile but the results looked very nice. I sent the linen slipcovers to the dry cleaners and they came back good as new. I have not washed the cotton slipcovers yet so I have my fingers crossed that they will wash well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding, great quality work! Couldn't be happier! Great skill shown by people who actually did the upholstery work. I sent my own fabric, didn't use Ballards', and this worked out well. Fairly simple, filled out the required forms, fabric shipped directly from where I bought it, and turned out well!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is beyond my expectations I have been looking for Parsons chair slipcovers for several months so that I would have a set to rotate with some very expensive slipcovers that I had custom made. I was skeptical after reading the reviews, particularly those talking about loose threads and wrinkles. I received the slipcovers yesterday and they are fantastic, much better than I hoped for! They definately needed ironing prior to putting on the chairs, but that is expected. The cotton fabric is substantial and the quality among all 4 pieces is consistent. They fit the chairs GREAT, and these aren't even Ballard chairs! So HAPPY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completing a set of six for my new dining room Preferring a more organic look, these slip covers over the Parson's Chair base blend perfectly with the rest of my home's decor. The nubby linen fabric is so thick and rich, it adds just the right dimension of texture to my dining room area. The look is easily dressed up or down, depending on the table decorations. Thank you, Ballard, for providing such easy decorating solutions with the presentations in your catalogs and on-line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully made! I received my super white twill slip covers & I couldn't be any happier! They were back ordered but I didn't mind waiting because I bought them when they were on sale plus I had a coupon & they didn't charge my account until they shipped! The seams inside the slip covers are so beautifully finished which I never expected for the price I was getting them for. The fit is beautiful as well! They needed a little pressing which I did expect because of being folded for shipping! I feel like I stolled them because the price for the quality is unreal! Now my Coastal look is complete!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I love this chair! It has such a nice shape and the padded seat is very comfortable. The slipcovers really set off my pedestal, glass top table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product that fits and looks great! We recently purchased replacement covers for our parsons chairs. They fit as beautifully as the first set (that lasted in a retail setting for 6 years!!!). Love the new color and the linen look of the new fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully made, perfect fit I have four Ballard Parsons chairs in my home, 2 dining room, 1 sunroom, 1 in the office. They all have Ballard slipcovers and I can't recommend them enough. Very well made & versatile. The twirl slipcovers on the DR chairs are especially striking. I added monogrammed 18" square pillows to two of the chairs (in a contrasting fabric). Makes them quite comfotable and a terrific custom look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Durable I have had great luck with the quality and durability of the off-white quilted fabric of the Parsons Chair Slipcover. ( I wish that I could say the same for the custom fabric slipcover I ordered recently. ) Ballard must have carefully selected these essentials fabrics for their versatility and durability. I have laundered mine several times with great success. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality and tight fit. These make my list of 'no regrets' Ballard Designs purchases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but I loved these but I had the Parsons chairs and wanted to cover them. My chairs had a flare at the back of the chairs on top. So the covers would not fit my chairs. I loved them so much I bought new chairs to put them on. Be careful to make sure they fit before you order. You must have a straight line on the back of the chair for them to fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but one thing could make it better I'm on my third set of slipcovers with Ballard in 11 years, so I'm a fan. The fabric withstands multiple washings and bleaching (for Super White fabric option), and my many guests wonder at how they can look so clean while being around food all the time. The one thing that doesn't make them perfect is the fact that the fabric is not pre-washed. Even though the covers are made generously to allow for shrinkage, with just one washing (absolutely no dryer!) the cover's length shrinks to expose a portion of the legs. Until Ballard Designs changes this, the best way to work around it is to replace the cover while still damp and pull to straighten all corners and adjust pleats to look crisp. I added a photo to show the difference between a new unwashed slipcover and a washed slipcover replaced while still damp

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice clean look. The fabric is natural & wrinkles so I needed to spend time ironing each cover before I could use these. Once they were pressed they looked great!
Date published: 2016-09-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved the look and the fabric. The chairs turned out beautifully with the red covers. The skirts on the chairs are a little long and get caught in the wheels at times. This is more noticable since they are on carpeted surfaces. Maybe make them a little shorter to account for carpets. Love all your products that I have purchased over the years.
Date published: 2015-11-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covers look custom. Wash sparingly. We have three different sets of Ballard Parsons Chair Slipcovers in the stocked fabrics. Two sets are cotton twill, one set is velvet. My review relates to the cotton twill covers specifically. The fit is fantastic - these slipcovers fit like a glove (some maybe too much like a glove - can be difficult to pull on chair backs). The cotton twill fabric is heavy and makes the chairs look substantial. The appearance is FAR superior to covers you can purchase at other retailers. Unfortunately I have been disappointed with the covers after washing. I have washed the twill covers three times, following the washing and drying directions carefully. After each washing they are smaller and shorter (like four inches shorter). Bottom line - they don't stand up well to repeated washings. And a caution - dye colors vary. If you think you'll need 8, buy all at once because we've seen a fairly dramatic color variance between purchases not made at the same time. All of that said, I'm buying them again because they look good - and they make my rather frugal Parsons chairs look like they were custom made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fabric I love my slipcovers. They do need ironing or dry cleaning when you receive them because they are linen, but well worth the effort. Very pretty and wonderful fabric.
Date published: 2013-12-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits great, looks great I order 6 of the khaki twill slipcovers for the Parsons chairs I just bought. I started out getting about 10 fabric samples to determine which ones I wanted. I went with the khaki because it is obviously a neutral and i wanted something I could dress up and use year around. It is actually closer to a cream - think of the color of hazlenut coffee creamer. They fit the Parson's chair perfectly. they were very wrinkled out of the packaging, but that is to be expected. I plan to steam them while they are on the chairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and cute! I love these chairs and slip covers. I have casters and the length is perfect. I love the casual, not perfect look of slipcovers. A nice look for a very low price.
