Parsons Chair Frame is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Welcome addition! I am very happy with my new chairs. The slipcovers were a little difficult to put on but that just made the final look sagging or whimpy looking covers. A great chair and nice look for the dining room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE my parsons chairs & slipcovers!! I bought these as side chairs for my dining table with the slipcovers that match my lovely Ballard Essential Panels that I used on the windows. The room looks like everything was custom designed. We love it!! The chairs are very comfortable and blend so well with any style. The best part is how versatile the slipcovers make them not to mention they can be washed/cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable I use these chairs at both ends of my kitchen table. They compliment the plain wood chairs at the rest of the table very well. My only wish is that there were more pre-made fabric options in the store so I could change the look for the seasons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love chair, height not so much! Happy with the quality of these chairs as well as the slipcovers I ordered for them in the new Taupe Buffalo Check, however, the chairs are much lower than as pictured in the catalog. Once I put these at the heads of my oval breakfast table, they appear squatty with my side chairs. This will prove to be an expensive mistake!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value for price point I purchased two of these chairs together with the slipcovers. Am very pleased with the chairs and overall with the slipcovers, although the slipcovers do not reach all the way to the floor so there is a bit of white frame peaking out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from matched I was trying to match previously owned parsons from Ballard and was concerned that they might be different and the seat height is slightly taller but otherwise a perfect match.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy and well-sized I wanted fabric chairs to go with my Spanish-style table. It's a huge table with chunky turned legs, so I wanted something that would help lighten up the look. I ended up ordering the Parsons chair because the size was just right for my table. It is wide enough to be comfortable without being too wide, and the height works so you aren't bumping your legs on the table apron. My husband tested the chair and thought it was really comfy - he is 6'1" and it is big enough for him. I also love the idea of being able to have several slipcovers I can change out for different occasions or season. I only have one chair right now - I ordered it so I could test it out before I made the entire purchase. It came in about week and was well packaged. I'm anxiously awaiting the other 5, which I just ordered today! I do kind of wish the legs were not covered in fabric, it would be nice to use the chair with a short slipcover, but over all I'm really happy. For the price point on these chairs you can't beat the quality and adaptability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product look elegant in our diningroom We purchased two Parsons chairs along with two off white slip covers. They are high quality just as your catalog always portrays. The delivery was right on schedule. We find ourselves lingering longer after dinnner as the chairs are so comfortable. We would shop Ballard again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chair. Great chair. I ordered 2 to sit at the ends of my dining room table. Ordered the Caramel Twill slipcovers as well. Looks custom made. My only complaint would be that it would be nice if Ballard could make available the fabric samples of the Ballard Essentials slipcovers, not just the special order fabrics. The slipcovers are also just a tad bit short. Overall, it makes my dining room look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the chair The chair is great, it's comfortable and for the price it's a wonderful chair for my dining room and elegant with the velvet slipcover! I do wish the back of the chair was a bit higher but other than that, it was a fantastic buy!
Date published: 2011-12-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look I love my parsons chairs. If I had to change anything, it would be the height of the back of the chair. I wish it was a little taller.
Date published: 2011-12-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Parson's Chair I ordered four of these chairs and four slipcovers. I love the chairs and love the look. The only negative is the white fabric shows below the slipcover, which bothers me a little, but overall a very comfortable and attractive chair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the chair Bought this chair for a desk in a guest bedroom! Got the skirted slip cover to dress it up and a monogramed pillow in the same color as the chair. Love the soft look and especially like that next time I decide to change the room I'll just buy a different slip cover for the chair. Reasonble price, fast delivery, all in one box delivered to my door!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look Arrived promptly (I bought ten) & have really enhanced my dining room. Adds a contemporary pop to a traditional table. I may add slipcovers later (especially since I am not sure how well the off white fabric will wear with our large family). Good quality at an affordable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plain, simple and TRUE I have had my eye on these parson chairs for a year. I am always sceptical to order furniture without feeling it and sitting in it. I needed chairs that are easy to move around and not too big for my kitchen dinnette area. I read all of the reviews and decided to go for it. It came in pristine condition, in large corrugate boxes. (note to mom's out there, great box as a playhouse for a week or 2). They are very comfortable, very easy to move about the table and the slip covers went on easily. I was worried about the chair height. I found these chairs to be exactly the same height as my other dinning room chairs....... so the height is fine. would recommend them highly, especially wtih all of the amazing slip cover choices. how can you go wrong?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The chair is comfortable. My daughter uses it as her desk chair. She is studying a lot more, so I give it an A+!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These chairs look great While I love the chairs and find them the perfect fit for my kitchen, my husband finds them to be a bit low for sitting at the table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sturdy frame I use these chair at either ends of my kitchen table and they add warmth and a richness to the wood set. They are sturdy and comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chair backs were too short to have the desired impact in the dining room as end chairs. Chair backs were too short to have the desired impact as end chairs in the dining room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good but not as comfortable as I thought it would be. I love Ballard furniture. I ended up getting the parson chairs thinking they would be super comfortable. They really aren't. I probably would have been better off getting one of the regular dining chairs. The chairs are good quality and I certainly do not want to return them. I had just hoped that they would be the type of chair to be comfortable sitting for long periods of time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frayed fabric The chair is very comfortable, however, it arrived with the fabric frayed where it wraps around one of the legs. Because it is such a large item it would be a pain to return so I will just sew it. It was disappointing. Other than that I love it.
Date published: 2013-02-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from comfortable, but a little low I purchased (2) chairs in September for my dining table. They came packaged well and were in good condition. The slipcovers I ordered for them seem to fit the chairs perfectly. The only thing my husband and I noticed was that the chairs do sit a little lower then your standard dining chair and takes a little getting use to when eating. It would be nice if they made one normal dining chair height and one for use not at a table. They are very comfortable to sit in as they have nice padding. Since we haven't used the chairs a lot I can't really say how well they will hold up, time will tell.
Date published: 2012-10-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable quality for the price I ordered this chair as a replacement for the one I had. The leg broke. The chair has a nice line to it and reasonably good quality, however, the slipcovers available for the chair do not fit properly. They are too short.
Date published: 2011-09-23
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Far too cushy for practical use I found that the cushion on the seat of this parsons chair seems cheap. You sit on it, and whoosh, down you sink, below a comfortable level for either dining table or desk. It looks lovely with the fresh, white twill cover that I purchased with it, but for practical use, the cushion makes this chair uncomfortable and, well, impractical! Too bad that I didn't try before I purchased. The very expensive shipping charges (which will be deducted from my purchased if I were to return) mean that I will lose too much money by returning! I'm very disappointed in this product, and yes, in Ballard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too short for dining room table We bought this chair to see if it would work with a dining room table. The quality is good, it is comfortable yet I feel like an eight year old at my parents table. Why would anyone make a chair a substandard height is beyond me. Since this was mail order and we didn't have the proper packing material, we had to take a loss on it and the cover.
