Rated 1 out of 5 by Jass Smelly, bad workmanship
The table cloth arrived quite wrinkled with a strong chemical odor. The lining was not attached properly causing the table cloth to hang unevenly. I took it the dry cleaner to remove the awful smell and try to press it to hang properly. It took the dry cleaner five treatments before most of the odor was gone. The lining was not properly attached, thus it will not hang properly without alterations. For what it cost, I should have returned it. The lining is simply to small for the table cloth. VERY disappointed. Not the usual Ballard quality

Rated 1 out of 5 by raplady Burlap has an odor
The larger round tablecloths did not fit the glass topped table- I purchased everything from this website to match. The Burlap tablecloth and the satin tablecloth were too long - I had to hide the extra length on one side toward the wall. Most disappointing was the smell that lingered on the Burlap- it smelled like rope. I had to continually refresh it with Febreeze.
It was well made and the fabric was strong but bad fit!

Rated 3 out of 5 by GPeppy Tablecloth is too short for this table OR table is too tall for this cloth
I had to cut 2 inches off the height of the legs of this table in order to make the tablecloth hang to the floor as in the picture.
Fortunately, my husband is handy & had the proper power saw to do the job. He also installed the brackets to make the table more secure & stable. Cutting the legs & putting the table together took him about an hour.
It also took me about an hour to iron all the wrinkles out of the cloth.
With that said, after 2 hours of work, mine looks just like the picture! I really do like the finished product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Luvshoponline This product didn't meet standards
I was hoping most of the reviews on this product were inaccurate but unfortunately there were not. The table is sturdy but the table cloth was too short and the lining does not fit the burlap....puckers! I have had this for maybe four weeks now and the order still has not gone away. I love the look of it if it just fit the table properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rydyga Classic must have!
I have decorated several homes. THIS 3 piece QUALITY trio table is one I keep buying over and over! Perfect with 2 placed at each end of a slipcover sofa, or night stands. Or mix in nicely with 1 "hers" night stand using another table for "his". ~ Allows plenty of room to utilize the top for lamps, decos or even a utility table. ~ I have grabbed mine to use as an extra 4 top with chairs when large dining parties…especially the larger trio. You WILL find multiple uses for this table I assure you! A+ Ballards!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ELBEE Not what I expected
The idea is great, but in reality the burlap cloth just does not work. It does not hang well. The fringe does not look good.The table I received was not easy to put together, and not level. Had to send it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wheelsup69 So happy with this product.
Was a little anxious that the tablecloth would not fit the table but it is perfect. The table is very sturdy and and exactly what I needed. Sewed a topper to match a chair and pillows and it looks great. Can always change the topper. Thanks for a great product and great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJ512 Fits Greats - Looks Great!
I ordered the fringed burlap table skirt to go on my existing Ballard Terrific Table that is 30"w x 30"h. Other reviewers said this table skirt was too short, but mine works great. The ends of the jute fringe just touch the floor - the don't lay on the floor. Perhaps the skirt works best with the Ballard tables? Tip - of course the skirt has creases from shipping; I put mine in the dryer with 2 damp washcloths and ran it on air dry for 10 minutes (you can use super low heat but I worry about shrinkage). The creases fall out and you are ready to put the skirt on your table.

I love my new side table! I'm using it in a guest bedroom with a "beachy" theme. Very happy with the quality, a burlap/ smell is strong at first but goes away after a week.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CAgalinthesouth Not as expected
i have bought several terrific table combos tn the larger sizes and have been very pleased. The smaller table is poor quality. The grooves in the top of the table did not fit into the legs to log in and provide stability and one of the egs looked like the outer and inner pressboard was separating. The table cloth is really terrible....bunched up over the linng and as others have stated WAY too short by about 3-4 inches and not symmetrical. Not worth the money and not up to the Ballard standards I expect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by notgood Not the right color or size
As many other people said the size of this tablecloth is not right. It is very clearly too short. And I ordered the ivory color and it is NOT ivory. It is a sand color. Not at all like the color shows on the website. That picture clearly shows an off-white tablecloth and that is not what this color is at all. And the packaging the glass tops came in is terribly thin and when it got to my house one of the two boxes was shredded because the box is SO thin. I would not recommend this product at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cherawls good quality, but be aware
i really like the table and the cloth, just be aware that the cloth is short. thankfully, my table had to be cut down in height to 28". this made the cloth work perfectly. but if yours will remain 30", be prepared to cheat the cloth. otherwise, very good quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by theBlesseddecorator Table great...Skirt not so great
Table and glass top: Are great!!! I have had these same types of tables from other companies in the past, and they were all unstable. This table from Ballard Designs is by far the best! Fringe skirt: I had read some reviews about this skirt being too small and some that sounded like it was perfect. I decided to take my chances and order it because I love the fringe look. Unfortunately, it was too short for the table. I exchanged it for an over sized regular burlap skirt, and tucked the extra length under. It looks great and I love it all now!!! Ballard's service is always exceptional...it keeps me coming back for more :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by GottaBeBlue Amazingly versatile!
I purchased Ballard's Terrific Table and burlap cloth to serve as a base for a small Christmas tree. The interconnecting parts of the base were harder to fit together than I expected (thus the 4-star rating), but after a pound or two from a hammer, it was ready for the top. Now that Christmas is over, I found a new home for the table in the center of my husband's library. The nubby texture and jute fringe of the cloth are perfect and I topped it with a square of Ralph Lauren's "Lodge Plaid" to match the cornices in the room. All in all, a good value that is amazingly versatile.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TeamkMom disappointed
I thought the skirt was way to short, the fringe did not touch the floor, not even close. I had to have the skirt lopsided on the table for the look in the catalog. too much money to have to mess with it to make it look correct. This was not made very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ciaelaine I'm happy with this trio.
I was somewhat skeptical because, based on 2 reviews I'd read, the product would emit a bad odor. The odor is not pronounced at all. I'm pleased with the overall product and will be adding a square print to top it which will cover most of the seam that's visible. Also quite impressed with the speedy delivery.

Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointedshopper Poor quality
For the price I was hoping for better quality. The table is okay but the tablecloth is horrible. It doesn't even touch the floor. The lining is nice but the burlap is larger than the lining so the tablecloth won't lay flat, it has puckers. I tried stretching it out straight on the floor, but it still won't lay flat. Next I'm going to try to iron it. It does have a burlap smell too.

The burlap tablecloth trio looks great with our burlap bedskirt...Lined with lots of body and crispness.
They make/complete a great look in the bedroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jellybean Nice addition to a round table
I got my table trio for a table I already had. The glass and table skirt fit my old table perfectly. I'm using the extra table in the trio for another room with skirt. The fringe is a nice added touch on this table skirt. It is lined nicely. It kinda smelled for first couple of days but can't smell it now. I'm happy with purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SwimMomRuns Fair quality tablecloth
The Trio: I'd give the particleboard table a 3/5, the glass top a 5/5, but the burlap cloth (which is the decorative element) only a 2/5. Agree with previous poster that the cloth does smell, but that doesn't bother me too much, considering the natural fiber content. What does bother me is the fit--fringe length is too short, along with the actual diameter of the burlap, as well. Agree with previous reviewer that the 72 inch cloth for the 24" x 24" table does not "puddle" as pictured. It would have to be shifted off center to look proper, but that leaves one side too short. If placed properly, I can even see the table legs through the fringe. Will exchange for a twill cloth and hope for a a better fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rays4me This product is nice
The product is nice looking, but it doesn't look as expensive as it does in the catalog. In order to get the bottom fringe to puddle (like the picture) you have to shift it to one side and hide the other side...it's not long enough to puddle when placed evenly on the table. It falls 1/2" short of touching the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vic83 Perfect item for my room
This was a well priced, high quality addition to the room. Nice fabric and the skirt goes all the way to the floor and allowed me to add storage baskets. The glass top is a must to keep everything easy to clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GALA LOVE THE LOOK ..HATE THE SMELL
The tablecloth is just as it appears in the catalog/online however the smell of burlap is very strong. I purchased two in different sizes for my living room around Christmas and they still smell. Hopefully when Spring comes I can open the windows and maybe they will air out and the smell will go away...
