Ballard Designs customer service is excellent. We ordered the wrong product and they made return shipping a breeze as well as expeditiously shipping out the correct stools. Thank you! We will definitely shop here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second time I have purchased these - love them! I have these counter stools in worn black in my previous home, and just purchased them in hickory brown for our new home. They are well made, the seats wear well and are super comfortable, and the foot rest is perfectly positioned. Great products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these stools! This is the second time I have purchased these bar and counter stools. Once in black and the second in the brown ... for two different houses. They are well constructed, the seat is comfortable, and the contrast between the wood and the natural fiber adds interest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy & comfortable for kitchen island We have been using these stools for about a month. They are sturdy and comfortable to sit in for extended periods of time. I work from home and regularly sit in one for 2-3 hours a day for a change of scenery from the office. I'm 5'7" and they are easy to get in and out of and the footrest is a good height. We ordered the gray color and while I like them, ours have a slight green undertone instead of a blue undertone for those looking to match existing decor. I have not had the shedding problem that other reviewers mentioned and that it with 2-3 hours of use in the morning and then another hour or two in the evenings sometimes as dinner is being made or I send emails to clients. Time will tell if they sag a bit from use, but right now, I am very happy with these especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dorchester stools These stools are beautiful and well-built. I bought the white counter height for my coastal decor, but they would also go great with farmhouse or shabby chic. They have an understated elegance that I love and I always get compliments on them!
