Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Chairs! I purchased a couple of these chairs with the off white slipcovers to add to our older all wooden dining set with ornate carved chairs. In our open floor plan, these chairs just updated the dining area and pulled everything together beautifully. And the chairs are sturdy and comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the chairs! These chairs are great! I paired them with the off-white twill slipcover. They’re very comfortable. I considered getting the chair with casters so they’d be easy to slide in & out when sitting, but I went with the regular ones & was pleasantly surprised how easily they move on a seagrass rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality & Classic Purchased 6 chairs for our new dining room set. Chairs are excellent quality! They are the perfect size height, width) and are made very well. Seat is firm, comfortable and will not bottom out. They came packaged nicely in a sturdy box with foam pieces covering the bottom of the legs. They were not damaged and in perfect condition. Highly recommend these chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with these chairs These chairs were more comfortable than we could have hoped. My husband is not a small man, and he likes sitting in them. I ordered these because they are 18" wide, and it allowed me to fit six of them at our farm table. We are pleased with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our dining room never looked so good. We are delighted with the comfort, look and ease-of-care with our new parson's chairs and their machine washable covers. The covers were easy to press and place on the chairs and they finish the look of the dining room very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased Four Chairs for my Dining Room I received these about a month ago and I have to say I'm glad I purchased these from Ballard and not from another site. These are very high quality and extremely comfortable. They are the perfect size to go with my antique table. I also love the fact that the slip covers that you can purchase for them are exquisite. I can change these out and use them in any room throughout the house with different slipcovers which makes them the best purchase for my house in terms of function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and perfect to set off my antique table. This chair is comfortable and looks great with super white twill slipcover in a beach house with an antique 60" round mahogany dining table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Parsons chair Simple, sturdy, stylish. I am using mine to accompany a desk in a bedroom. With a linen cover, it's just the right look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, perfect size. My 3rd purchase! I started with a Ballard parsons chair to use in my office as a desk chair, with a Ballard slipcover. It's perfect and has held up beautifully. Bought a second for spare seating in the sunroom, and just purchased two more to use as dining chairs. (Again with Ballard covers.) The skirted upholstery-quality slipcovers make these look like very expensive chairs, and they are so versatile. I have looked elsewhere (local & online) for Parsons chairs and have never found any of this quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fabrics to chose from for this chair I ordered six of these chairs in two different patterns and I love them. Being site unseen (I did get sample fabrics) I am so impressed with the quality of the chair and fabric. I have only had these for a couple of months so I cannot attest to long term use but I am so not worried about that as they seem very durable. I was very impressed with the packaging and shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to extra seating These chairs have been my extra seating for years. I have four of the first generation version that have to be a decade old and are still in great shape. Just added two more and the new seat is definitely firmer and further reinforced. A quick change of the slipcover and I can use them in any room!
Date published: 2013-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic The chair is well constructed. Only negative is that I would like the seat to be about an inch higher. I have since ordered and received the black checked slipcover and I am very pleased with my two purchases!
Date published: 2013-01-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are my favorite chairs! I love these chairs. They are so versatile. The styling can be adapted to any decor. The two I recently purchased will be added to six others that I have purchased over the years going back at least 12 years. I use one at my dressing room vanity, one at my desk, and six at my dining room table. They are all upholstered in complementary fabrics so that I can mix and match them whenever necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the classic look! This is the 8th parson chair I have purchased. I love that you can change the look with new slipcovers. I would like you to bring back the slipcovers with the white piping and banding on the bottom. I bought them in navy with white trim they were outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The parsons chair is comfortable and solid. My parsons chair arrived as promised, fully assembled, in good condition and on time. I wanted a chair that could be used as a desk chair and double as seating in our living room area, where I have tucked a very small office space. This chair is ideal! It is attractive with a cotton slipcover added, and provides a comfy spot to pay bills and research future purchases. I am concerned about indoor air quality, so I try to find pieces that do not outgas harmful chemicals. I have no breathing issues with this lovely chair. When company arrives, I have extra seating by turning it around to face the sofa. I added a small decorative pillow (8"X12") for a bit of short-term lumbar support, and it serves nicely in my little home office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is simple, elegant, comfortable and a great price! I am very pleased with these chairs which I bought to use with an antique round pedestal table in the kitchen dining area. I have had many compliments on them from friends and family and they get high marks for comfort too. I just love to have pieces that are versatile and these parsons chairs fit the bill perfectly in that department. They can be used for extra seating in the living room when we have company and they look great. They also make a useful bedroom or bathroom chair too. Another great feature is the ability to take off the covers for washing or making a fresh look with a new cover in a different color or fabric at some time in the future. I'm very pleased. Thank you!
