Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pillows Bought 2 pillows (safari brown) love them. Purchased a foot stool with same fabric years ago and wanted to tie the pattern into living room. The quality and color of the fabric is the same, years later. Sutal changes of color are perfectly placed on pillows. Ballard Designs is and always be a great source for quality home decor. Watch for sales, that happen often ! AK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made; great value I bought 8 of these as gifts for couples, with their first initial on either side of the first initial of their last name. I got linen embroidered in off-white, and they are very attractive. These go with almost any decor, and are great under your head watching TV, as a lumbar pillow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pillow I really like this pillow that I purchased in the toffee check. I also bought the matching check cushion that goes on the farmhouse bench. I paired it all with a sunflower embroidered pillow as an accent. It looks so great! The pillow cover is well made, and the self piping adds class. I expect to get a lot of wear out of this item. The fabric seems substantial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and quality. These pillows are awesome. The velvet is soft. The down insert is cushy. I was surprised at how nice they are for the price. Had them in just a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Perfect! Love these pillows. Well made, zippers for easy cleaning, nice feel to the inserts. I ordered a second pillow. I have made most of the toss pillows in our home so I understand good construction. So much easier than sewing my own. And cheaper too. Will purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable! I copied a personalized pillow from a recent catalog - and gave HOHOHO pillows to 5 of my dearest friends. All different fabrics and thread colors - they were adorable! And it goes without saying, also with Ballard's amazing quality...I need to order another one for me!
Date published: 2013-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I ordered the 12x20 in chocolate brown and had a blue monogram put on it . The quality is great. I did need to wrap the insert in a dark color fabric before I stuffed it into the case so that the open weave of the burlap didn't show the white pillow insert through it. Not a big deal though. I used an old black t-shirt and it worked great. A nice custom look.
Date published: 2013-11-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designer Look in this 12x20 pillow! I ordered this pillow in black check with our monogram. I absolutely love the quality of the fabric, the finish and the monogram is done perfectly. It looks like a much more expensive pillow than $26.00. I have ordered the same black check fabric in the table skirt, for my Ballard round table. Can't wait to get it~ Love Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made product These pillows are well made and look great. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. I will always buy my pillows from Ballard. You can't beat the price...especially when there is a sale. I have shared this info with my friends as well.
Date published: 2013-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a devine pillow! I was very pleased when I opened the box to see my monogrammed pillow. The insert is very comfortable and fits the "zippered" cover very well. The construction and material of the cover are excellent and the monogram well done--the finishing touch. I get a great feeling of pleasure and satisfaction everytime I look at the pillow. Can't wait to order more!
Date published: 2013-03-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality product This pillow has a nice full insert (some feather inserts are somewhat lacking in the number of feathers!). When I first took the velvet cover out of the package, it had some rather obvious creases (from having been folded), but they soon 'fluffed up', and all is fine now. All in all, I'm very happy with it - especially considering the reasonable price.
Date published: 2013-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice pillows I have several of these Essential pillows in a variety of sizes. Like the inserts a lot, like all the fabric choices and love Ballard. Everything I have ever bought from them is great, and the one time I wasn't pleased, they fixed it immediately!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value No complaints - ordered the linen 12x20 pillow with navy blue monogram. I'm very happy with it. Love the range of choices for size, fabric, and monogramming style. Overall great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pillow is great I loved my rectangular pillow so much I ordered a second one! I had previously ordered Ballards Coventry bench as a banquette seat for my newly remodeled kitchen (which I love). After I had it I saw that I could get a matching pillow would make it even more of a lounging spot. Very good quality and comfort, and a good decision! Think I'll order another color to trade off for a different look. Love the black and white check fabric!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning I ordered three and plan to give two away as Christmas gifts, keeping one for myself. I always enjoy giving gifts which I know the persons will enjoy receiving and making it something special for them....like the monogramming on each pillow with their initials. Should not be a problem with how to care for the pillowcases as they can be easily removed for cleaning. Love that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I ordered two of these pillows for my living room. They add just the right touch to my couches without taking up too much sitting space. I usually sew my own decorative pillows but this particular set I could have not completed for the price Ballard Designs offered. It was a great deal and the quality is up to my high standards.
Date published: 2012-11-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and practical These pillows were meticulously monogrammed and came in a timely fashion. They are really well made, and the inserts are of good quality. I would use these in many clients homes. They look good on the sofa and do not appear wrinkled when used as a backrest.
