Larkin Upholstered Swivel Glider is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice lines and comfort too I would be surprised if there was a more sophisticated, while still comfortable, rocker/glider out there...believe me, i looked. While i was really looking for a slipcovered version, this has met all of my other expectations/needs in a location that required smaller size and the flexibility to better address room conversation/formal interior design or alternatively, watch the television in the corner. The chair is really is most comfortable with the use of an ottoman- back height is a bit low to lean your head back on unless you sit lower & 'sink in' (definitely an option with included lumbar pillow). Ordering folks be advised- you are quickly charged for a portion of your order (it's your fabric) & shortly afterwards get alerted that your 'order has been shipped'. While generally helpful to know that the order was being processed, it was confusing. It was initially unclear if it erroneously had been shipped to me or elsewhere...it turns out it was an alert that the fabric had shipped to upholstering/manufacturing company. It was nothing that a call to shipper and good old fashion sleuthing couldnt solve. Im unsure if i would be alerted to this if i had ordered via phone rather than online. As a plus, and to the manufacturer's (Ballard's?)credit, they sent me the excess fabric which may be helpful in the circumstance of an accident or perhaps for use for trimming out or making a small pillow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite chair! These chairs are absolutely the most favorite chairs I have ever owned. They are extremely comfortable with an included lumbar type pillow. Not only do the chairs swivel, but they rock as well! Who knew you could get a fashionable chair with comfort?! P.S. The custom fabric is beautiful.
Date published: 2012-10-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chair is very comfortable. I had been looking for a small scale glider for awhile and I liked the look of the Larkin. It was less expensive than chairs I'd priced locally. I shipped my fabric to Ballard and it took about 8 weeks to make. The chair exceeded my expectations. It doesn't look like a glider and is very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! We ordered two swivel gliders in the green gingham. We are getting ready to be first time grandparents and wanted comfortable, nice looking gliders for the den. We are thrilled with the chairs. The construction is beautiful, they are very comfortable, and they fit perfectly in our room. I specifically wanted slip covered chairs--I am hoping the fabric stays as nice after washing. The only "trouble" we had was with delivery. I scheduled the delivery date and time on the internet about 10 days before the date. I took a day off work and waited--5 hours and several phone calls later it was determined that the truck for that date was full and I would have to reschedule. Our chairs arrived two days later and the service that day was great. I highly recommend these chairs and will shop from Ballard again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Chairs I ordered 2 of these for a guest room and they are beautifully made and very comfortable.
Date published: 2012-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chair fit all our needs! We bought two Larkin Swivel Gliders for our living room. In our Colonial home, our living room is also our family room so we needed to make it functional for all our needs. The chairs swivel to face the TV and piano, then swivel back to face the opposing sofa and fire place for when we have company. They are slim, so they fit nicely in the space, and we love the updated style. We chose the Sunbrella fabric in Brass. The color coordinates nicely with our existing decor and the fabric is durable enough for our kids and their little friends; I already easily washed off two sunscreen handprints. We were worried about the kids abusing the glide and swivel features, but it has not been an issue. The delivery went smoothly. The men unwrapped the chairs outside and placed them were I wanted them inside. They said the boxes generally don't fit through front doors. The chairs have been a great addition to our living room. We couldn't find another style of chair we liked better, and couldn't beat the price. Thanks Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking chairs for the money! After much confusion over when my chairs were going to get here (it took 10 weeks!) I was VERY excited to get my chairs and they look fabulous!!! They are a very expensive look for the money and those who have seen them agree. Trilby fabric is a great neutral with texture so not boring at all. Traditional and interesting and can go anywhere. Highly recommend!
Date published: 2012-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and comfort I bought two of these chairs for my living room. My husband has always complained the the furniture I select is based on style and not on comfort, but he even thinks these chairs are comfortable. I love them. Not to mention they are a fabulous price.
Date published: 2012-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, stylish, and great size We have two of these chairs in COM -- they exceed my expectations. These are that perfect size between a too-big club chair and too small side chair. The slope track arms are comfortable, not as narrow as appearing in the picture above, and the depth and width of the seat accommodates a petite frame as well as my husband's longer legs. They glide and swivel smoothly and the delivery service was great; I didn't lift a finger. I also like that they don't look like nursery gliders because of the sleek design.
Date published: 2012-05-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Uneven skirt Overall, I like the look of this chair. However, the skirt in the front is about a half an inch shorter on the tightly than the left. I am hoping no one notices, but my eye goes straight to it. I’ve tried everything to pull the fabric down, make sure it’s not bunched, etc... Guess I’m stuck with it now.
Date published: 2021-05-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best chair! Great swivel glider chair. Very low profile. Would have rated five stars but chairs were super expensive in my opinion. Did see similar ones at a fraction of the cost, but no fabric choices available. They better last for years. We do love, love them!
Date published: 2020-02-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Larkin Swivel Glider The upholstery pattern on both chairs are extremely well matched on each chair & to each other. I do wish the arm pieces had more padding to better tolerate frequent use. Am concerned that without additional padding that the fabric will wear fast from use.
Date published: 2018-06-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for me/but my friend liked it It is a good chair but did not work for me. I wanted to like it but I am five foot three and could not get comfortable in this swivel glider. My feet did not touch the floor. My friend who is 5 foot six said it was the most comfortable chair she had ever sat in. I had ordered it in a velvet and the construction of the chair caused the velvet to wear in a line across the front of the seat cushion. I would not recommend ordering velvet for this reason. It was pretty severe and looked like the fabric had been damaged. This would not be a problem in other fabrics.
Date published: 2018-04-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok, but.... I love the style and color of the glider, and I like the swivel feature. However, the fabric worries me (Sunbrella Herringbone Spa) It doesn't appear that it will be very durable, especially on the narrow channel arm. Time will tell. I am disappointed that there are no arm covers, never thought to ask. Every piece of furniture I've bought at this price point had them. The back pillow is comfortable, but not high enough. The mechanism seems a bit squeaky and not level at times, but works. I am not happy that I paid for SO much EXTRA fabric. I considered getting a larger pillow made, or perhaps arm covers, but the cost is prohibitive. The manufacturer, or Ballard, should be able to judge the fabric amount required more accurately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creaks After only a few months of using my Larkin glider to rock my baby it is already creaking, which is really annoying when my baby is asleep. We gently use it and have not moved it since it was delivered, so I'm not sure why it creaks. Also, both the arms have quite a bit of piling on them after eight months of use. I don't mind this as much as the creaking because I could use a razor to clean it up, but still I wouldn't think I would have to do that already. I have a basket weave fabric on it.
Date published: 2015-05-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from a lovely little chair for relaxing with a book This chair is well constructed, and I loved the basket weave texture I picked out for the upholstery. The chair was a nice addition to our bedroom, and would fit well in a living room or study as well. It is most comfortable with a little footstool or ottoman. I am 5'3", and the seat is very deep, so having a footstool makes it more comfortable. I wish that the back came up a little higher so I could read my head against it. It took about 2 months to receive, and I found it curious that the company doesn't contact you again until the week it will be delivered. Still, everything worked out, and the delivery went smoothly.
Date published: 2014-02-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable This chair took much longer than expected, but was very nice once received. I'm happy with the swivel feature and the fabric (SK linen in flax) is very pretty.
Date published: 2013-01-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the money Love the chair...but was disappointed to find a big tear in the pillow shortly after delivery.
Date published: 2012-06-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty chair just don't drink coffee in it Love the shape and look of this glider. I do have to take two stars off for the length of time waiting for it to arrive and the swivel part of the rocker goes back very far. I've already split my coffee a couple times because it feels like the chair will flip backwards. The construction of the chair and the fabric is great.
Date published: 2020-03-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice material. Not a glider--instead a rocker and it wobbles I expected the chair to be a glider and it's really a rocker. It also wobbles and makes a noise when rocking.
Date published: 2015-02-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great chair, poor fabric I love the shape and style of this glider. It's perfect for a small frame and very comfortable. I am quite displeased with the fabric itself - there were several fold marks along the side of the chair, the skirting was bent and there were several areas of pilled fabric. Despite these issues, I kept the item since I did truly love the chair. After a couple months of having the chair now, the seat and arm rests are quite noticeably pilling. I probably should have returned the chair upon delivery.
Date published: 2014-07-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from One of the two chairs looked as I expected I ordered two chairs with the same custom upholstery. One chair arrived with outstanding custom upholstery. The other chair's material was left too long in the front and too long on one side of the chair. When ordering two identical chairs, I would expect two identical chairs. Now I must go through taking pictures and arranging corrections to be made. This should have been checked before being sent to my home.
Date published: 2013-04-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good chair, substandard upholstery job The chair took 11 weeks to arrive. I am very pleased with the fabric, size and shape of the chair. It is a decent chair for the price but is rather lightweight and may not hold up if you plan to use daily. I chose a patterned fabric which the upholsterer did not center on the back of the chair so that the pattern runs at a noticeable angle. I will use a throw to cover the mistake. I probably would not order an upholstered piece with a patterned fabric from Ballard again.
Date published: 2013-03-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from not rocking smoothly after 2 months I ordered 2 of these chairs with the advice from my decorator based on the chair's looks and measurements to fit my living room. One of the chairs is not rocking smoothly two months after delivery, and I called to return them because I am concerned with the quality. Please note since these are custom they are non returnable. Someone is suppose to call me back next week in regards to the chair that is now messed up. I am hoping to return one chair for a refund and keep the other chair since I don't have a choice. Hopefully it's just a fluke and the other chair holds up well.
Date published: 2013-02-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just OK Meh. It's OK. I wish I could have sat in the chair first (my mistake) It's really deep seat and the lumbar cushion isn't ideal. The arms are very thin and not comfortable for what you pay for a custom piece.
Date published: 2020-04-30
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy The day we received this chair it made noise and wobbles slightly when it rocks. It clicks and creaks which is unfortunate since this is my nursery chair. It sounds like metal is hitting underneath the chair. It's much smaller than we thought and not terribly comfortable. With all that said it is very cute and the fabric is beautiful.
Date published: 2015-12-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from This chair is not comfortable The upholstery workmanship was impressive. However, I do not find it comfortable. Read return policy carefully. Orders other than the picture shown are considered custom.
Date published: 2015-09-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from COMFORTABLE CHAIR FABRIC DISAPPOINTING We have two of these chairs and ordered because Ballard offered "Sunbrella" material easy to clean. It is quite the opposite. They are soiled and spotted and can not be cleaned as easily as Ballard explains. You might as well just order the chairs and display them because just occasional sitting soils the fabric and arms of the chairs you would have thought we owned the chairs for over 50 years. They look terrible and are impossible to clean and maintain.
Date published: 2021-01-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality My chair arrived dirty and with a broken frame. It also had a snag in the upholstery. After much communication hopefully I will receive a replacement.
Date published: 2019-09-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low Quality The chairs are a great size, but unfortunately low quality. The fabric pulls and gathers at the bottom of the chair, as well as sags across the back. Would not recommend.
