Rated 5 out of 5 by coloradovikingsfan Beautiful Rug!
This is the first time we've ever ordered anything from Ballard and we are beyond pleased with our rug. My only surprise was that the gold color was not as vibrant as I thought it would be, but I should have read the reviews, as that has been the concern of others, as well. For any potential buyers, I recommend ordering the swatch. The quality is absolutely beautiful and it fits very nicely into our space. I'd love to order another one for our dining room!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ps752 not at all like pictured
I was so looking forward to the rugs as I had been looking for one with the cream back ground.
What arrive was more in the brown/tan family.
Not even close to a creamy background.

I looked long and hard for a rug for my bathroom in a 4x6 size. The colors are a great match for the travertine floors and my walls and countertops. I love the pattern. We removed a huge '90s tub and replaced it with a bench seat and basket storage. The rug finished the space perfectly.
If you have doubts about the colors, order a swatch. The swatch is true while the photos make the background color look lighter than it actually is.

The rugs were delivered in terrific packaging and easy to unroll and set up. The color and pile were exactly like the sample swatches and were the exact sizes we expected. So far we like the wear and ease of maintenance. The only down size is the amount of shedding that is occurring we have had them down for 4 weeks now and they are still shredding fuzz - we are hoping this will stop before too much of the pile is gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynne601 LOVE THIS RUG
I put this rug in our formal dining room and it is perfect. It looks exactly as pictured online and it's soft on the feet. The pattern is so pretty. I am thinking about getting another one for our kitchen table and/or for our entryway.

Love my new rug! Based on other's comments, I was unsure about ordering because many indicated the colors were different than what appears in the photos. It is definitely not as gold as it seems in two of the photos. I would suggest ordering the swatch as the colors represented are quite true to the colors in the rug. There is no shedding at all and I do have a rug pad underneath to protect my wood floor. Another quality Ballard product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KWFamily Better than I expected
I hesitated to buy a rug online - but the price was too good to pass up.
Turns out this rug is perfect for the space. We needed something in our Master Bedroom to go under the bed and protect the new hardwood floors and to 'warm up' the room. The pattern of this rug was perfect to compliment the bed and the wall color.
The colors are more muted that what is reflected in the picture - which is perfect for us - but if you are expecting a 'white' background and a hard contrast of 'bright' colors, you will be disappointed. The background on our rug is more grey than white and the rust highlight color is more muted - but it suits us fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Design121 Rug is very well made
I was pleasantly surprised at how expensive looking this rug is. The colors and design are right in line with updates for 2015.

The backround color is darker than in picture. However, I love the deign and with it being darker it hides the dirt. I will be purchasing a larger rung when it goes on sale.

I love the colors in this rug! The only down fall is that it sheds a ton. I pick up fuzz everywhere all the time. I still recommend it because I love the way it looks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ballardfan10 really beautiful!
My allegro rug just arrived and I love it. The only reason I dont give it 5 stars is that I do not yet know if I will have any shedding issues with it, but so far so good. The colors are far more muted than shown, very true to the sample I got. I like that the background color is not so light. The touch of blue I worried about is more of a light grey which works better in my room (walls are sage green). I love that the design has no boarder and doesnt look like every other rug you see in terms of pattern. Now if only Ballard would offer free shipping....

Rated 2 out of 5 by goodhubby Poor Quality again...
This is our second time ordering rugs from Ballard Designs and both times the quality is poor. We ordered this rug in a 8x10 and the two runners as a replacement to the rug we previously ordered (a different style) and this too is poor quality and the colors are not close to what is pictured. The back ground color shown online compliments the yellow and gray however the actual background is a muddy color and makes the rug look as if it has been used for quite some time/dirty. The loops are frayed and there are red threads all over. This is the same issue we had with the last one. I have only unpacked the runners and do not think I will even open the 8x10. These must go back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kady107 Love the colors and pattern of the rug
I would have rated this higher - love the colors and pattern of the rug, but some of the rug loops have already pulled loose. It looks beautiful,but the quality could be a little better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MissMac It's Really Beautiful in Person
After reading the other reviews I was leery of ordering it but it was the only rug I had seen that was remotely what I needed for my space. It is indeed a tad richer in color than the picture is and that is what I wanted. It is thick and soft to your feet. Some said theirs picked really easy. I have not noticed that at all and I have a medium sized dog in the house. I am completely satisfied and have had many compliments from friends on the choice. I do recommend it if you are looking for the darker muted mustard, smokey gray and taupe colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mc47 YES. I would buy these again!
It was definitely helpful to read the other reviews before I purchased two of these rugs as runners. It prepared me for the fact that the negative space in the design is really a gray/tan and not ivory as the photo would have it seem. That said, the yellows and deep grays are on target, the rugs are stunning. I also purchased the pads which has made this a nice, cushy walk adjacent to our family room. Nicely made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cooljuls this product is quality.
I had requested a sample prior to ordering this rug and it was helpful as my order looked like what I had been sent as a sample. Colors are soft and muted. It is a beige background. This works well in a bathroom.

by redgir LOVE the softness and the color
I purchased this rug for the colors! This rug looks great on my dark wood floors. It looks great with leather furniture. The wool is thick and soft. I do not use a pad underneath it. The rug sheds when it is new. I vacuumed it several times to get all the loose fluff off. It hasn't been a problem. LOVE it!

The rug came in very similar to the picture. Colors are fresh but not too bright. Very happy with quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by UnhappyinAustin Poorly made
Unfortunately I have been really disappointed in this rug. The colors and pattern were perfect for the room I bought it for. That is the only reason that I gave it two stars. The loops of wool are already unraveling, and it sheds like you would not believe. Also the background color looks cream on the website but it's actually more of a beige in person. If there was a local store I would of returned it.

This rug has been a favorite of mine since I first saw it in the catalogue. I waited patiently for a sale & when I received an offer for 15% off my purchase I immediately placed an order. Low and behold the rug was on backorder & I had to wait again. I was not disappointed! The pattern is beautiful! The colors are deep and rich.
I absolutely love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AMTR Dingy background color - not as pictured
In the photograph, the background of this rug appears to be a nice cream color which contrasts well with the dijon and gray of the medallions. However, in reality it is a rather unpleasant dingy grayish brown.
The rug is nice and plush underfoot but one of the hooks was pulled loose the first time it was vacuumed, which doesn't bode well for its long-term wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ladydi44 good value for money
Allegro hand hooked rug is good quality and the pattern design is correctly placed for the size 5X7 that I ordered. It fits nicely in my foyer and visable from my French inspired living room/dining room.

I have been looking for the right rug for a couple of years. This was it! I love it. Nice quality and very plush. Looks especially nice with hardwood floors. ( I even ordered a second one for another spot!) Thanks for a great rug and great service.

by CraveDecorating Love this rug!
I needed a 4'x6' rug for my newly redone guest room, and all I could seem to find elsewhere was 3 1/2' x 5 1/2'. I wanted something current but not too trendy (like the chevron pattern rage). Colors are very true to how they appear online. My wall color is teal blue with brownish-grey bedding. This rug works perfectly. Ballard's even includes a shipping bag in case you don't like it.

The rug is BEAUTIFUL and is exactly as it appears in the photos except the cream color is a little darker than it appears in the picture. I bought it because I liked the light cream color but I'm actually happier with the color being a little darker! I originally ordered the 5x8 rug but it was out of stock so I ordered the 8x10 rug and it fits perfectly in the room - so glad I got the larger rug!!! It came in a timely manner and was well protected - great packaging. Could not be happier!!!
