Sofia Upholstered Chair - Stocked is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and Unexpectedly Comfy! I ordered two of the chairs in the rich chocolate color and couldn't be happier. Truthfully, I bought them because I loved the shape, scale and materials and didn't expect that they would be so functional. Excellent surprise! They are as comfy as they are stylish--I would add a lumbar pillow in another fabric to "fill them in" a bit--they are big! Love these--great packaging and great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! This chair (I bought 2 of them) exceeded my expectations... good quality, design and comfort. The generous proportions are no exagerration. Felt it was a good price/value. My only "wish" would have been to be able to choose from different fabrics. However, I am very pleased w the look of the fabric (light) that it came in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is stunning and comfortable! The Sofia chair is gorgeous, substantial, and in addition, very comfortable! The unique style and shape adds interest to my family room, above and beyond what a regular chair design could have provided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming ! I purchased two of these chairs for my living room and love them. The fabric is a nice quality and the wood frames are very sturdy. The only flaw would be the back support. I added another 20" down filled pillow to the chair and I love the look. Overall these are beautiful occasional chairs and I am very happy about my purchase. They are packed so well that it took me about one and a half hours to cut up all of the cardboard and styrafoam. But they arrived in perfect condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We purchased the Sophia Chair and the Sophia Settee and are thrilled. The looks is very beautiful in our living room. As others had written before I purchased it, the cushions could be a little more "cushion-y", but it's still great and over time I will probably have them restuffed. But for the price, great purchase! We LOVE Ballard Designs and recently purchased the Catherine Rug as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sofia chair I love the chair but it needs more stuffing in the cushion. After sitting on it every morning for the past 3 weeks to put my shoes on it is flat, not firm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking chair! This is a lovely chair, and pretty much looks just like the photograph on the website. (... although the wood definitely has no shine to it.) The dimensions are mentioned on the website too, but I guess I was still surprised at the large size of the chair. It's so wide it could almost be a love seat! The quality is good but it is a little more 'rustic' than I was expecting. Those are the things to look out for... But overall I am very happy with my nice-looking and comfortable chair!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from lovely design, scratchy fabric, pillow is a small square Very nice looking chair. Fabric, however, is really scratchy, almost like burlap sack material. Hoping it will soften with wear (although it's so scratchy, no one really sits in it yet). The pillow it comes with is a 15" square, NOT the rectangular one that is in some of the pictures. The square pillow looks too small for the chair, as it doesn't fill the seat back. You'll need to add more squares (or find your own rectangular pillow) to make it look right. All in all, it's an OK chair. Not fabulous, but for the price, good enough.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from How uncomfortable the chair is It is a beautiful chair but is for show not comfort. I was so excited about the chair and it does look good but it is so uncomfortable. The wood hurts your arm if you rest it on the arm rest and the back of the chair also has wood which all of it adds to the beauty but also hurts your back. I love Ballard Designs and I know if I wanted another chair I would check with them first. But I already spent a lot of money on this chair and I am stuck with it.
