Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit on slipcover I really love the special order slip covers I received. They fit perfectly and are a wonderful addition to my home. They are very well made, and I know because I have sewn some for my sister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful job I was so pleased to receive my custom chair cover. The material was lined up well and fit the chair perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Posh slipcover! I already have one of the slipcovers from Ballard, so I decided I wanted a new look and ordered a wonderful leopard slipcover. I am very pleased with the new look, as well as the quality of the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Great quality slipcover with the French words throughout. Very classy design. And it fits perfectly with a chair that I purchased elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!!!!! I was reluctant to shop on line. I am really not a catalog or on line shopper but I took the plunge. We are thrilled with our Parsons chairs and slipcovers!! Perfect fit on the slipcovers...wonderful, colorful fabric which goes well with a brightly painted table. Liked the slipcovers so much, I have recently ordered dark colored ones for winter. Thanks for good service and good quality. Peggy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great I was nervous...getting something with a custom fabric selection. Such a commitment, right? Well, they look great. After a quick hit with an iron (needed it after traveling in a box) they slid on and fit perfectly. It took me a couple days to actually notice it, but the seamstress who constructed the slipcovers made them match....EXACTLY. The fabric pattern was in the same place on each of them, on all sides. Slick Miss or Mr. person-who-sewed-them! Get lots of positive comments. I ordered two...they sit on the 'king and queen' ends of my new dining room table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit, Fabric is good quality The covers arrived earlier than expected (by about a month!), so that was a huge plus. The fabric is beautiful, though the samples we ordered were too small for the large print to get a good feel for how it would look. The fabric is also a little stretchy; so, while the fit seemed originally a little too tight, after some use it has loosened to fit perfectly. We also ordered some other chairs for our dining room and 2 of them have very squeaky bottoms. After seeing the Parsons chairs with their covers, we probably should have gone with a full set of these and not just used them as accent chairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful !! Just what I wanted and thought I was getting. I ordered the parsons chair with special order fabrics and they arrived beautifully. I love these chairs. Super comfortable and I can order different slipcover fabrics to change the look from winter to summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Practical Chairs I've always wanted beautiful fabric dining room chairs, but it never seemed practical. I would always be worried about spills and other disasters! These slipcovers are a beautiful option. Plus, if someone spills wine on them, they can easily be laundered. We will enjoy these chairs for years to come, and because you can quickly launder and care for them, I know we will enjoy them for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chair! My husband immediately noticed the parsons chair in our bathroom. He and I both enjoy the casters. It is the perfect size as well as very comfortable. A really nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Fabric I love my new slip covered chairs and the fabric is beautiful and sturdy enough to withstand three kids climbing all over it
Date published: 2011-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bang for the buck I purchased the slipcover in a special order fabric for a desk chair for my 13 yr old daughter. We are both very pleased with our purchase. The chair and slipcover are comfortable and both seem to be well-made, not cheap/looking at all. The slipcover fits well and looks custom. I would be comfortable having this chair in several other rooms in our home, it's a very versatile piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! We love them!! They are fantastic! Everyone should buy them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty but not durable The slipcover is very pretty but seems to be splitting a bit at the seams after only a few people sitting on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rolling parsons chair slipcover It’s beautiful! My only complaint is that it is a tad to long for the roller chair.
Date published: 2020-03-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from NIce Fabric I love the slip cover but after buying many over the years the price has gotten to way to high for a simple slip cover with no decoration. I also think the turn around time is to long. Giving it a 4 because its nice quality and the color is nice. So I would recommend it on quality and color but not on price
Date published: 2018-11-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product ok They look nice, but they are 1/2" too long. They were purchased with the castered chairs. The length problem makes for a sloppy look. I will probably have to fix the hems for a crisp look.
Date published: 2013-01-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slipcover review The fabric was just as I imagined, nice weight and quality, colors true. The fit was great, my only complaint is that the print is not quite centered on the back, which is what I see while in the room, as I am using the chair at my desk.
Date published: 2012-06-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is a great product, but. I sew and usually make most of my own items. We were having visitors and I did not have time to request a swath of fabric for review. Thus, the root cause of disappointment. The material is not very thick for furniture covers. It should have, at least, been lined. The skirt part of the cover sort of waves between all four legs and I have had to do a lot of work to try to get that stopped.
Date published: 2017-05-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The fabric quality is exceptional. I was disappointed by the quality of the fit. Hopefully, after the slipcovers are cleaned the first time, they will fit a little snugger.
Date published: 2015-05-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beaautiful Fabric....but I recently purchased two custom Parsons Chair Slipcovers in the Susan Kasler linen fabric - Lavender. The color and weight of the linen is stunning...a light lavender/gray. Because they were a special order, they were expensive and took a couple months to receive. I was disappointed in the fit. The fit was loose and some of the cording was wavy. I have six other Parsons chairs with three sets of slipcovers for different seasons and occasions. Yes, I know - its a little out-there but I love to "change it up" and keep things fresh. All of my other slipcovers - were made from "standard" fabrics and fit much better. I don't understand. The standard slipcovers are a fraction of the cost of the custom and are delivered within days. How can fast and cheap fit better than slow and pricey?
Date published: 2012-09-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Fabric Quality was Disappointing I purchased 2 Parsons custom order slip covers and 2 Parsons chairs to match 6 other Parsons chairs and slip covers that I purchased from Ballard roughly 5 years earlier. I ordered the same fabric (off-white cotton duck), and was disppointed that the quality seemed to be inferior to the existing slipcovers that I already had. Also, the chairs themselves are roughly 1/2" shorter than my existing chairs. I was not expecting the fabric to be an exact match in color (although it was!), but it seems to be a little bit coarser, and more prone to wrinkles. Also, the actual fit of the slip covers seems to be a little off. My original 6 slip covers fit the chairs very snugly and their cording lines up to the bottom of the frame almost exaclty. The two that I recently purchased just don't fit as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great chair, poor fabric After viewing a gorgeously decorated room in a BD catalog, I ordered a custom fabric slipcover for my parsons chair as shown in the catalog picture. After waiting 3 months for delivery, I am sorry to report that my slipcover is already quite torn at the seam, a good 12 inches. It is an SK linen and it wasn't cheap material. I will not be purchasing linen slipcovers in the future as they do not hold up to daily use. My BD basics fabric on my other parsons chair is still holding up beautifully 1+ years later under similar use. Live and learn.
