Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as pictured Received my lotus garden seat today and it is just perfect. The color is a soft aqua blue and just the right height to place beside a chair as an extra table. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lotus Ceramic Garden Seat Actually, I now own a total of 5 Lotus Garden Seats! (No, I'm not over doing my purchase of this item!) My recent order, was for 3 of these ceramic garden seats. It was for 2 of the BLUE, and the addition of 1 more WHITE. A year ago, I had purchased 2 WHITE Lotus Garden Seats, for my beach cottage condo...And I loved them! My home is done with beach cottage decor, in various shades of white, and blues. I found that the first two i'd purchased, went beautifully in my home, no matter what room I used them in! They are so useful, and in more ways than I ever dreamed they might be! When they went on sale the beginning of this year, I decided that I could use more of them, and added the blue garden seats, to the white ones I already had, and was constantly using! Plus, I purchased an additional white one! I move them around, and use them alone, or in a grouping! They make great extra seating, when necessary, plus they're useful as individual end tables, a coffee table in a grouping of two or three, or as my granddaughter say, "It makes a 'super duper TV tray/table', if you have permission to eat in another room! I like them to do my homework on, too!" YES! I would definitely recommend these to anyone! They are also easy to care for. These will make an excellent purchase idea for a housewarming gift, for a young couple getting their first home. I'm sure that in time I will continue to find more and more uses for them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful garden seat; good value Love this garden seat. It's exactly as pictured. Just one thing in case you want to use this as a side table, the top is not completely flat so I won't be placing drinks or fragile objects on it. Even so, it's a very good value for the sale price I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, Beautiful, Perfect This little piece is just what we needed -- it can serve as a side table or a little stool; whatever we need. LOVE the rich Tiffany blue color and the sexy shape. And the top is only slightly concave. You can still definitely set a drink on it. You'll love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is the perfect accent piece love this! Color is true to photo, a pale aqua blue. Perfect size as an accent piece, mine is in a large foyer. I have never been disappointed with any purchase from Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I just love our Lotus Garden Seat. I wanted a pale aqua shade, and couldn't have been more pleased when the seat arrived. The seat's shape and color look beautiful next to a white leather easy chair. May I add that the packaging saved the day? Somehow our carton got ripped, and styrofoam leaked from the package like snow. I thought the seat would surely be damaged but it was so securely packed that the outside tear did no harm. Because the top is concave, I placed a small book on top so any drinks put there are more balanced. This small table just makes me smile every time I pass by.
