Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! I bought these to fit under our counter. I'm not a big fan of bar stools sticking up over the counter. These are great quality and comfortable to sit on. They match our kitchen perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool stools! My 10 year old son is helping me write this review because he uses the stools more than anyone and he loves them! We bought these last month and could not be happier! We previously had large stools with a back and arms which were hard to move and blocked the view to our keeping area. We love the low profile of these stools and the woven bottom adds a great mix to the textures in our space! Ballard was having a sale which made the deal even better. Highly recommend for good quality and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar stool My decorator recommended these and they are beautiful and perfect. Not sure I will add a fabric cushion to seat because stool is just beautiful as is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Barstools I bought this a few weeks ago along with the seat cushion and I absolutely love them. The cushion and the bar stool itself is very comfortable. They are very different and unique from the norm...thats what I love the most. The wood isn't as deep and shiny as the picture indicates but they are beautiful nonetheless. They are sturdy ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just love the color of these stools I just love these Counter Stools; they are as nice as you see them in the photo. The color is grey with a undertone of green; very beautiful. I am going to get the Bar Stools next...I got the linen chair cushions in parchment, I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Stylish These are the perfect size for a small bar. They look stylish and the seats are sturdy. A bit scratchy so you will need cushions.
Date published: 2017-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Stools Sturdy and beautiful finish. The woven seats do not shed and are smooth and comfortable. The rubbed gray finish is a bit of a greenish gray. High Quality stools and very lovely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, sturdy, classic look These bar height stools are perfect for our bar height island in the kitchen. We wanted bar stools which are: 1. backless - no interrupting the view, 2. sturdy - we are not sylph-like people, and 3. no swivels - too high for us to swivel onto and with 2 grandsons who LOVE to twirl ... well, you understand. These in black are a great accent to my black granite counter top on the chestnut finished maple cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most attractive, great quality Love my new stools. Used them during holiday entertaining and received so many compliments. They are attractive and very sturdy while remaining comfortable. I was impressed with the packaging. They arrived so well protected in the box as to totally avoid any damage. Kudos to Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these stools! These stools are perfect in our new home! We have a ten foot island and 4 of these stools fit very comfortably. We have been very pleased with the sturdiness and the look of them. Ours are rubbed white and they match our simply white cabinets perfectly.
Date published: 2016-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these stools. Stools are great, attractive and comfortable. I was concerned that the seats would not be comfortable so I ordered the cushions. They are lovely, but they made the seats so high I could barely get on. I kept the cushions for another use. Meanwhile the stools (I ordered white) are lovely. They are bigger than I thought, but not too big to slip under the counter. Well made.
Date published: 2016-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! Well made, sturdy and comfortable. The seat is ample and tightly woven. I ordered four for my large island (4' x 7'). Three on the long side and one on the end. They fit perfectly. The rubbed white finish matches my white painted cabinets. I read a few reviews from customers that reported a shedding of the seat and that problem must have been rectified. Not a problem so far after several weeks. Arrived within days and completely assembled!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from substantial I really liked the look of these stools in the photos online but was worried they would be flimsy or too delicate. They are not, they are are very firm and give steady support when sitting. I bought two in the rubbed black finish and really like them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value Look great with our decor. This is our second set of 3. The first set is still around but the wicker is unraveling and they have lost some of their stability but we got a good 5 years out of them.
