Rated 5 out of 5 by Ozhen10 updated family room with a less formal look
This was exactly what I wanted to give my round table an updated / less formal look. I love the weight of the tablecloth. It was wrinkled and did have an "odor" but I left it hanging on the porch overnight and it was odorless and a quick iron took out the wrinkles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Msmo Things wrong
It is not truly "ivory" in color and the inside lining is tighter than the outside resulting in a bunched up place that does not hang properly. Really expect more from Ballard Design, especially at this cost. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Krisby Burlap Tablecloth, nice fringe
The color was more gold than it was beige; I would have preferred it if the color was truer to beige than gold. It is made well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ju0984 Love this table cloth for its look.
The burlap fringe tablecloth is a great look on my covered deck. However, I would not use it inside due to the chemical type smell that came from the material. After airing out for a week or two, the smell left, but wouldn't recommend it for inside use.
Good value for the price and I got FREE shipping!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rita927 Love this, but go a size larger!
This tablecloth is wonderful and just as described in that it's very versatile and will easily work in a bedroom or den.
Before I ordered the first time, I read several reviews that suggested ordering the next size up. All the reviews were right! You will need a size larger than what you think you will! But, it was worth the return and re-order!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Decoratingfooltoo Classy casual tablecloth
Couldn't wait to get this tablecloth, only to find out that the ivory I ordered turned out to be a soft yellow. It is well made and lined nicely. The size is correct and fits nicely on my table. I steamed the wrinkles out and made the fringe hang better. Just wish the color was ivory as listed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ccreader Looks beautiful, but the SMELL!
I tried putting it on my screened porch for a few days; tried running it through the dryer with a slightly damp towel-- it still smells. But it looks really good, so it's staying. The fabric has enough body that it drapes really nicely. I didn't have any problems with measurement; it fits perfectly with the fringe just dusting the floor. I've had it a few weeks and I guess the smell has subsided a bit, or maybe I'm starting to get used to it. Overall, I think it's worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Xretailer Off putting Odor
I was excited about the neutral look of this burlap table cover. However, once I opened the package, I noticed a very strong odor. I aired it out in a room other than where I was going to use it and noticed that the entire room began smelling like the table cover. Finally, I moved it outdoors hoping that two days in the air would eliminate the odor. Since that did not take care of the odor, I any getting rid of it entirely. I will opt for a linen table cover instead of the burlap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dmds burlap table cloth
like all the other reviews it DID smell oily- so i left it outside on warm days (in the shade) for about a week then doused it with Febreeze. That got rid of the smell. Looks great in our guest bed room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alexis Very nice tablecloth and a great value!
I wanted a tablecloth to complete a skirted table in our greatroom. I was looking for a natural looking table skirt and thought about having one made when I found this one at Ballard Designs. It arrived and was perfect. It is well made, and the bullion fringe is a nice touch. Yes, it did have a bit of an odor but it dissipated after about 2 days- no problem. I think this table skirt is a great value, as having one custom -made would have cost no less than $!50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joyt Exactly as pictured.
This tablecloth fit my Ballard table perfectly. Hem sat right at the floor. I had the faint odor of burlap that others described but hung it outside for half a day and it was essentially gone. This coordinated with my Easter Decor perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by InteriorDesignerRetired Just what I had in mind
Love the quality and is just what I had in mind. From some of the other reviews, I was concerned that it would be too short. Definitely not hitting the ground but what people forget is that this fabric does give and will get longer as time goes on. Love the quality and is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lotusblossomflower So worth the wait.
I have wanted this tablecloth forever. I knew this would change the look in my room. We threw a vintage French tapestry over it, place the glass on top of that and voila we have a new French Country look. Yes the burlap smell took a few days to go away but it is burlap. Nothing else can give you the same feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeeGee Classy product and well made
I ordered this in the chocolate brown and it is a nice rich color. The fringe really adds to the look. The tablecloth fits over a round bedside table that is 24 inch diameter and approx 30 inches high with a little pooling of the fringe on the floor. Nicely lined.

This tablecloth looks great but even now after several months it has a horrible smell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by julbug5 Looks great - terrible odor
This does look as nice as it is pictured. My table is 29" diameter so the 90" works well and is not too short. However . . . the smell is really awful. It's definitely a petroleum based smell and not burlap. I've been airing it with windows open, fan on for 2 days, and now outside and it's still as strong as ever. I'm worried that it won't go away. Febreze didn't touch it. Anyone know what to do? I tumbled it in the dryer on low and that didn't help either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janef595 Good looking and true to color
I love the way this looks in my room. It is very warm and the color is true to what you see on line. Upon opening, it does indeed have a very strong odor---petroleum like. I unfolded it and spread it out on my screened porch for the night. Still pretty strong odor. I put it in my dryer with a few dryer sheets and a damp cloth and ran it on air (no heat). I did this for 3 cycles. I think it helped with the smell a bit and it helped loosen the wrinkles. Ironed it with a nice heat steam iron and it looks perfect. After 2 days, the chemical smell is gone -- now it jut smells like burlap. My table is 28" in diameter and 28" to the floor so the 90" cloth is perfect with some drape on the floor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trishhouselove Ivory is actually butter yellow
Beautiful but the ivory color is pictured online as a warm white but it is actually a very gold tone, butter yellow. I had to order the white twill to achieve the white.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Just what I needed
This fits my 30" diameter table (not from Ballard but a similar style I have had for several years) great. The bottom of the fringe just dusts the floor. Some people complained about an odor -- yes....it had one when I took it out of the package but it dissipated once I had it hanging on my table a couple days and I think I have a pretty sensitive nose. It has wrinkles when it comes out like anything that has been folded that way. I'm going to use my clothing steamer to steam it out -- don't expect any problems but will report back I encounter any. It is very attractive and I am pleased with my purchase.

i have the ballard 30" round table and this tablecloth fits perfectly (the fringe just skims the floor). i like the look, the color and texture of this item, but i am disappointed nonetheless. as other reviewers have noted, the tablecloth has a very strong odor. it sort of smells like a petroleum-based solvent. it's been on the table for a week and i've sprayed it with febreze many times, but the odor still lingers. if you don't have a sensitive nose, you may not mind this issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michelle72758 Great look and texture
I have used this tablecloth to bring texture into my home. This item has been in both my living room and is now my bedroom; it's such a great neutral! I've used it alone and with a square fabric w/trim placed over the top. Mine is a tad short, but I twisted the shorter side to the back. I like for the fringe to to puddle on the ground a touch like it does in the catalog.

very attractive with informal feel. couldn't find anything like it elsewhere. color slightly darker than shown and material slightly scratchy as you would expect from burlap. odor that others mentioned not a problem with my purchase. very satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by labradorlover Beautiful looking, but does not fit.
I wish I had read the reviews first. The tablecloth is beautifully made and I love the look, but mine measured 71" from fringe end to end. When placed on the recommended table size, it was more than 1" off the floor which looked horrible and moving it around to have more drape on the front and less in the back does not look classy, nor should you have to do this for the price. The thickness of the lined burlap pulls it off the floor so that the 1" shortness turns out to be more like 2" off the floor. If this tablecloth were 74" in diameter it would be perfect, but it's not. It needs to be redesigned and then I would buy it in a heartbeat.

We bought this table for our living room and love it. It's well made, sturdy and the burlap table cloth looks great. The burlap table cloth did have a strange odor to it when we first opened the package but it quickly dissipated.

Also of note, I received the order within 9 business days after orderding. Don't hesitate!!

I was really excited to get the tablecloth and my new terrific table, and I love the look. I followed the guidelines for appropriate sizing, and the tablecloth is way too small! I'm keeping it only because it's in a corner and you can't tell that the back-side is way too short!
