Louis Folding Chair is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect extra chairs I purchased two chairs years ago and just purchased another two. Our family is growing and we needed extra seating. the color and the quality are as good now as the first two. They are comfortable and store easily. I would recommend the cushions for extra comfort when sitting at the dining room table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive, small This is a great folding chair - small but comfortable and very attractive. I shall save up for some more. Perfect folding chair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I have been looking for a smaller scale chair that matches my kitchen cupboards, to use at the built-in desk area. The chair color (mahogany), size & style are all perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical yet elegant folding chairs I first bought two of these folding chairs for extra dining chairs. They are elegant little chairs and fold easily for storage. I just purchased two more- this time not only for extra seating when needed but to have for everyday use- one in the hallway and one to be used at a "vanity" table. They are a great product and well worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice, comfortable and pretty Nice chair and solid too, for it being a folding chair. But I would have preferred to see the metal bolts on the sides covered with a wood plug rather than the silver bolt sticking out...that's my only complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant look, yet a folding chair. We ordered 20 of these about 5 years ago and they have held up well. Needed to add 18 more for hosting larger groups. Not really made for a heavy set person, as we had one break from that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right! I was looking for a small chair to set next to a small table and this one was just right. Love the cane seat and back. It is well made and sturdy when sitting in it. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Ordered a gateleg table and wanted extra chairs that could be easily stored. These fit the bill. Got them in time to use for Christmas dinner and sat in them for 5 hours without cushions, very comfortable. Ordered the hickory - the color is beautiful. Best deal is if you can get free shipping as the shipping cost on these is a bit pricey. Would only be better if they came with storage bags. Note these chairs do not fold completely flat, there is a bit a width to them because of the shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Louis Folding Chair The chair is perfect as a second chair in our home office when both my husband and I need to veiw the computer. It is lovely, folds away for storage when not in use and is even comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Louis Folding Chair I was looking for a small but comfortable wood folding chair for a petite desk I have. It is the perfect size and the wood blends great with my desk. Good quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from blends well with "real" dining room chairs Ordered 8 chairs to have enough seating for a holiday dinner and have been really pleased with them. Our dining room chairs are French-style wood and these look so nice with them that I've been leaving two of them set up at the table. They are quite well-made and nicely finished and are comfortable (I purchased the matching cushions). The only downside, for me at least, is that they take up a fair amount of room when folded--they don't fold very flat--especially when folded with the cushion attached. Overall, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best folding chairs ever! The 4 Louis folding chairs are great. They are small and light enough to store easily and do not take up a lot of room at a crowded dinner table. The appearance is lovely--the design blends in with my other larger French Country chairs. I recently made chair pads for them using your foam fillers. I used my French Pierre Deux toile fabric and they are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this chair is sturdy, folds easily. This chair looks good and not at all like a folding dining chair. It stores well and is not tippy, so is safe for children at the table. I am happy with this chair and all my purchases from Ballard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real wood, wicker and vintage white color is great! I love the vintage look. The color is great - vintage white. I live in a very small efficiency and needed something to "define" the bedroom area and the living room area. This chair does it perfectly without weighing the room down. My cat also loves sleeping in it! :) It is very comfortable and looks great. Thanks for such a great product. Wicker is soooo summery looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decorative and functional as an extra chair I use these chairs for guests. They are elegant and sturdy but a bit narrower than I expected. The locking mechanism on a couple of them don't always stay in place but they look very nice and are very functional as extra dining chairs.
Date published: 2014-01-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking This is a great looking chair to use every day of for special occasions when you need a few extra seats at the dining table. My only complaint is that the are a bit bulky for storage and easily open if leaning against a wall but overall small price to pay for such a great chair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like these chairs a lot. my color discontinued though these are truly the best folding chairs ever and in fact, we leave them up all year round in one room since they are quite sturdy and have held up really well. Ordered 2 years ago in the Fruitwood color which was a good match for our decor, unfortunately, it has been discontinued. Be careful about the colors when viewing online, they do look a bit different in our experience that what is shown (i.e. Mahogany photo online does not look like the mahogany that arrives or the traditional Mahogany you'd expect).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive, wish they were a little bigger. Wish they were a little bigger. Also, when closed they tend to partially unfold which makes storage more of a challenge. Bought the covers which helped. They are attractive, look nice with my dining room table, & are comfortable for average size person. Price is reasonable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seat too small These chairs are very attractive but the seat portion is unusually narrow. I ordered the cushions with them which might exacerbate the problem since elevates you a bit. The cushions feel a little odd at first, like a temper-pedic feel, but when you settle down they're comfortable. I feel like I'm hanging over edges and I'm probably average-sized (ok about 15 lbs. over-weight#. Not sure whether should send back the chairs #big hassle) or keep them and have the younger folks sit in them. Should have ordered the wider LeMans chairs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Chairs Have an Expiration Date I really loved these chairs when I bought them years ago. They are quite beautiful and I really appreciated how they fit into our French country decor but unfortunately almost all of them have broken. Some of the frames gave out and this Christmas Eve and Day three of the chairs seats, made of wicker, completely tore. One by one, we bought six, have all broken except for one. This is highly disappointing given the $99.00 price tag. I do love the look of Ballard Designs just wish your quality matched the physical beauty of your furniture.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from paint comes off I purchased this brown chair for my son's room, now used mostly as a guest room. It looked great but, after one summer of use at a desk, the paint is wearing off the wicker seat leaving patches of white. Use only for very occasional, very short term, use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from finish chips easily very pretty when new but the finish chips very easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "White" is not white Ordered the "vintage white" color based on color in photo. This is not white or even cream. It is a yellowy beige. Way too dark for my needs and now I'm stuck with return shipping costs. Much darker than online and catalog photos.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seats Break These are cute folding chairs, just the right size for my small drop-leaf table. But...the rattan seats break after a few months use. And who wants to return two bulky chairs?
Date published: 2014-02-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from seats are breaking I will contact customer service to see if they can help me
Date published: 2011-06-22
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful chair, would NOT recommend it. Purchased six of these to use for holiday, party, and general celebrations where you want something attractive and reasonably sturdy. One by one as they were used the rollers that facilitate opening and closing would drop off. It was impossible to get the rollers back in. The chairs are useless without them rendering the chairs throw-aways. A little pricey for disposable chairs!
