Ballard Essential Cushion - Petite is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 171.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit - just like I had hoped I ordered 6 medium seat cushions with ties in the black/cream pattern and they are beautiful. As always, I love the Ballard quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cushion for my bar stools. These are just the right size and look great; covers are easily removed for washing. Just don't leave in dryer too long as they are cotton(or at least I have the cotton ones) and will shrink some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cushions Really happy with these cushions! I shopped and shopped and had samples sent and in the end am very pleased with these. Our dining table is part of an open floor plan, so the seats and cushions are always front and center so I really wanted something of high quality that looked nice but didn't distract from anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect choice! I recently bought six of these (plus one in the medium size) and they are wonderful. Well-made and comfy on my antique kitchen chairs. The fabric is sturdy and should last a long time. Thanks, Ballards's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chair cushion Nice shape, comfortably firm, looks great on the chair. Colors in photo appear as white/black, but the check is actually more of a beige/black. Ended up working out perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really enjoy this item. The first time I ordered the cushions I got the ones with the buttons and was very unhappy. I like these ones much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable! I looked through my Ballard order history and was suprised to see that I ordered my 6 small black check/gingham seat cushions in 2008! They have survived daily abuse of three boys so amazingly well and other than spot cleaning, I have never had them cleaned. I have had to sew back on a tie or two that came loose, but for as long as I have had these, that's to be expected. Hoping they come out with some new patterns so I can change out my look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit I ordered this cushion for a small bench in our entryway. It looks great and fits perfectly! It changed the whole look of the bench, making it look comfy and inviting. The cushion is well made and holds it shape well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cushions These cushions are great, worth the price. Have tried cheaper cushions before and there is a clear difference. Plus they look terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! The product color is as described (I purchased the Super White) and the quality of the product is excellent. I especially like that I can remove the cover to launder when soiled and as these were purchased for the kitchen, that's a plus! I'm very pleased that I can order fabric by the yard to match! When I re-decorate, I will not need to buy the cushion, just the cover!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I ordered these cushions for my new kitchen chairs. They are well made, comfortable and came in just the right color. I really like that you can remove the covers and wash them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive and comfortable seat cushions. I would highly recommend these seat cushions. They fit perfect. The covers can be washed. It is definately worth the price. The fabrics available are very fashionable for your home too. Much better than several ones I have purchased in the past at stores, that only lasted for a few months. Go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit. Easy care. Improve comfort of stools. Have had your wonderful counter stools for years and find the Essential Cushiions, medium size, are a perfect fit. Niow that my husband and I are retired we have leisurely mornings and enjoy the additional comfort the cushions give us. I know I'll enjoy changing the covers with the seasons as well--thanks for your consistent good quality and prompt fulfillment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I have been looking for cushions for my breakfast set for a long time. I could never seem to find any that would fit the size of my chairs. Finally I found the right size at Ballard. I picked 10 fabric swatches that I liked and received them in just a few day. My husband and I eliminated the ones that didn't seem to fit our dinette area and finally settled on one pattern. I then placed the order and before I knew it, they were here; and as I said I Love Them! Thank you Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bar stool cushions and covers Service was excellent; I had 2 exchange item twice because I wasn't sure which color would work best in our kitchen. Customer service was very helpful, and exchange was made easily in both instances. I love the cushions and covers, they are comfortable to sit on and look great in the kitchen!! Thanks so much Ballard Designs!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made very well I've purchased similar cusions from them few years ago but because the outside cover was not removable, it made it very difficult to clean them. The new ones I just purchased does come with removable covers and the fabric is a bit more sturdy. On top of that it was about $20 less each! I wish they had more selections in fabric but I am happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are perfect cushions for the small ladder back chairs in our family room. The style, color, fabric and removable washable fabrics made this a perfect choice for our needs. They look great and I love the tailored finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking Cushion I don't know how much you can really say about a cushion....but, as far as cushions go these are great! Fabric is of a good quality and construction is A+! I ordered the sage check and it is a wonderful shade of green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cushions The cushions look great on my dining room chairs. The neutral linen will go with everything and breaks up the wood look. They were wrinkled coming out of the package, but I put them on and then ironed them and they look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is perfect!! Great product. made well and looks exactly like the pcitures and i would buy it again. I like colors and would have loved one with some design and colors, but these covers are great. Big enough for bigger chairs.
