Ballard Essential Pleated Couture Slipcover is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and color. This is my second set of covers for my chairs. Good fit. It is an easy way to change the look without buying new chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT slipcovers! These are fabulous slipcovers at an unbeatable price! Exactly how they appeared online and a perfect fit. Considering ordering additional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful slipcovers I ordered three of these slipcovers, in Everyday Linen Spa, to fit my non-Ballard Parsons counter stools and they look great. The dimensions listed are exact and the color is very pretty. The quality is fantastic. I'm quite sure you couldn't find this quality elsewhere, or even make them, for the price in the catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. I'm very pleased with these slipcovers. I wanted a tailored look in a neutral color and that is exactly what I got.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful I bought these for some existing chairs and the fit was great. The color was more tan than off white to white like I thought thet would be. Ruffle is cute and fabric is really nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Slipcover! These just came today. I ordered 6 in the small black check pattern. They are PERFECT! The color is black and cream. The check isn't too small and they fit my chairs nicely and my chairs are not a Ballard chair. I plan to order 6 more in a solid color so I can switch them when I want. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I ordered a second set of 8. A few years ago I ordered them in a light blue twill and I was so pleased with them that I ordered another set of 8 in a neutral linen. I am now free to mix and match. They are well made, fit great, and I couldn't possibly make them for the price. The pleated is style is so signature. I just love them. There is undoubtedly another set of them somewhere in my design future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-made slipcover Nicely made out of a heavy weight fabric - great for a monogram. Bought it for a non-Ballard chair - dimensions given were reliable and it fit great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great slipcover I ordered this slipcover for a Parsons chair that I already own. It actually fit my chair despite being from a different company and looks great. I love the pleating along the bottom and fits perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Pleated Couture Slipcovers I ordered the Couture Chair with a pleated Butter Twill slipcover to use as an accent chair in my bedroom. I love the quality and style so much that I ordered another pleated slipcover in Crimson. I frequently rotate my bedroom linens and the Couture Chair slipcovers are the perfect compliment for my decorating needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nicely made This slipcover was the exact color and look that I wanted. The only reason for 4 stars is that it was hard to get on the chair. I realize that it needs to fit well, but it took some serious wrestling to get it over the front corners! Other than that, it is beautifully made and I'm glad I got them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely cover, but color not what it appeared I am happy with the chair covers, they fit my Pier 1 chairs well, however the Apple Velvet is not what it appears on the screen. I tested this on several screens and the fabric appears to be a bright green, which is what I wanted. The actual Apple Velvet is far more olive, dusky colored. They will still work with my room and I love the look of the pleats, but the color is not at all what I expected. I also need to figure out a way to secure the seat part to the chair as they slide off when anyone sits.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dirty I ordered the super white and they were dirty when I got them. Must have been there from the manufacturer because the packaging was very good. I also notice there were a few black threads in the fabric. I was able to remove them with sewing tools and tweezers, but it was not easy. Overall the fit they chair nice, but not as perfect as the picture. You still get wrinkles and pulling in areas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but colors are not what I really wanted. Not a good assortment of colors, but God product Thx

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great concept; dull color I've had my Ballard chairs for over 10 years. Changing the slipcovers is an inexpensive way to redecorate. This time I replaced cream velvet covers (which drape beautifully) with cotton "Courtney Spa" fabric. It was surprisingly dull; the background is more beige than cream and the blues/greens muted. The seams where the chair seat meets the chair back also seem "tight" and don't tuck into the crease of the chair nicely the way the velvet did. To customers: get the fabric swatches first. To Ballard: offer more prints in the cache of stock fabrics not just Courtney Spa.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not fit When installing the slipcovers on the chairs we were very disappointed by the outcome. Given the extraordinarily tight fit of all of the slipcovers the seams pulled in multiple places. In addition, there is no way to pull the seat portion of the slipcover over the seat and the top of the chair legs without damaging the seams. It appears that the slipcovers were not made to fit the chair appropriately. The fabric is pulled so tightly the skirt on the chair does not lay correctly, nor does it fit the back correctly without pulling. Most concerning is that the seams are pulled from the installation alone because the slip cover is so tight.
