Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful - Very Highly Recommend!! We absolutely love the pleated slipcovers for our dining room chairs. They fit like a glove and look absolutely beautiful! It is quite worth the extra dollars spent to get such a high quality decor product. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Thank goodness for these. I ordered the couture chairs last summer in a custom, white Sunbrella fabric. They were so nice my cats decided to make them their personal scratching posts! I am so happy Ballard makes these slip covers - the fit and color are great. They are wonderful when we have company and support the illusion we have perfectly well-behaved cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleated chair slip covers I have had the chairs I bought from Ballard Design for close on 10 years now. I have cats and young grandkids, so being able to switch out the covers means my chairs can take a beating and still look great 10 minutes later. The materials are of excellent quality (I have used the twill and checked fabrics) and wash well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I was worried they may not fit my chairs, they fit perfect. I purchased both ticking fabrics, they are equally beautiful.
Date published: 2019-02-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy! I bought these after searching for a couple years for slipcovers that would be compatible with another chair brand that had been discontinued. I was so pleased with the quality and fit and how it transformed my diningroom for the holidays at a very reasonable price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ballard consistently delivers! This purchase was to replace 4 of my Ballard slipcovers. I had bought an extra at the time at least 7 years ago. The fabric of the four new ones match the old one (still in the package) exactly - as if they were from the same dye lot. And, when we removed the old ones we were pleasantly surprised to see that the off white fabric on the chairs was practically spotless. The black checked covers are beautiful and protective. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these chair covers! I have now purchased four sets of the pleated couture chair covers - three in solid colors and one printed. I switch them throughout the year so I always have a different look. They are very well made (high quality fabric) and give my chairs a custom look. (Even though I did not purchase my chairs from Ballard, they fit them perfectly). It is very difficult to find chair covers unless you custom order, so I was very happy to find these at Ballard. I have received many complements on them. I highly recommend these chair covers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy! I’m thrilled with these! I looked for 2 years for slip covers for my parsons chairs, even getting estimates for custom made ones. These are very reasonably priced, good quality, and look fantastic! The measurements are accurate, allowing me to order with confidence for my old chairs. Really, really happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Slipcover w/Pleated Skirt! I've been searching for the right style & color of slipcover for my kitchen island barstools...this color was perfect! Exactly as represented on the website---matches well with my living room furniture (which is a slate blue). I could see this color (Spa) working well with greens, grays, blues, and neutrals. Nice, heavy canvas which will wash and wear well. Thinking of putting a stain protectant on them since food spills are inevitable. Since the slipcovers are made for chairs, they were a bit tall for shorter, upholstered barstools, but I knew that when ordering---I've simply tailored them to fit perfectly. They were quite wrinkled upon arrival; my clothing steamer took out all creases quite nicely. Good value at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great savings I bought the camel-back chairs probably 15 years ago. My cats have clawed the pipings to threads. Instead of throwing the chairs out, I bought the slipcovers and now the chairs are as good as new! Love the small black checks, stands out in a sea of solid colors. The slipcovers fit the camel back just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chair cover fabric is quality This is my second set of chair covers I purchased from Ballard. First set were butter yellow and went to the floor. Changed decor and purchased gray short covers hoping they would match my curtains and they matched perfectly. The fabric is a heavy weight and the covers fit like a glove. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well This really fits great. The color is just right. The quality of the fabric is great and it doesn't seem to wrinkle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice chair cover! I purchased this in the Trilby Baskerweave Spa and it is perfect. Very heavy fabric and very well made. I put it on a chair not made by Ballards and the fit is great. A bit tight putting it on but looks great! everyone who sees it asks if I got new chairs and can't believe its a cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Slipcover I have had this slipcover in white for close to a year. It wears well. I have washed it a couple of times. I let it air dry and it goes back on to the chair without needing any ironing. I love it!

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.

Date published: 2015-02-09
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!
Date published: 2012-11-28
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!
