Classic Bench is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and great quality I love the way the fabric was upholstered onto the bench and the legs look fantastic.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size, well constructed I needed a small bench/foot rest in a sitting area. I sent my own fabric and Ballard did a beautiful job covering the bench and it looks great in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bench Be sure and check the measurements of this bench....it is deeper and shorter than your average "end of the bed" bench, but it looks great there anyway. It seems sturdy, the cognac legs look great...I highly recommend it especially at its price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size Love my new bench. The fabric is a little puckered, but overall, it is wonderful. I've been thinking about getting it for a long time and am glad I finally spent the money to get it. Use it in entryway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but wish it were a little longer It took a while for my bench to arrive but now that it is here I love it. I do wish it were about 8 or 10 inches longer and would seat 2 people. The length that it is only works for one person, I use it for extra seating in my living room. And the fabric is a new one to Ballard and goes perfectly with my living room. I may order some more to make a pillow or two. I looked for the right bench for a long time and this is a good value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good so far- The bench arrived earlier than expected and was easy to assemble. The fabric is beautiful. But the bench is not plumped up as indicated. It's flat. I'm OK with it but would rather have one more plump/stuffed. It's very functional where I have it. The label/tag on the bottom did not adhere and kept hanging down so I cut it off. Overall it earns 3 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty. Sturdy. Not functional as a dining bench. The bench is well constructed and looks good. However, it will not work as a standard heighth dining table bench because it is about 2" too short. I have several benches and chairs placed at tables and in hallways and they are all a couple of inches taller than this one indicating there is some standard heighth. I tried using it along a hallway and with the high ceilings, it looks diminutive and child like.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low quality I bought this bench nearly 4 years ago and when it arrived, I was disappointed in the quality of the fabric that I had custom chosen. If I am buying custom anything, I would have hoped the quality were substantial and thick, not thing and cheap. I had to screw in the legs upon arrival and when anyone sits on it for extra seating, it is wobbly (which is embarrassing) and very poorly made. The cushion is hard and not comfortable to sit on. Even when used as an ottoman, it's not comfortable. I'm sure there are very many other well-made benches to choose from at a cheaper price. The other furniture in my living room are all from Ethan Allen and Lillian August. It is very obvious that the quality of this bench does not show as well as the other furniture in my house. It's now been banished to a guest bedroom that is seldom used. Buyer beware. I hadn't written a review until now as I rarely consider buying anything from Ballard after having this experience. The prices seem great, but I guess you get what you pay for.
