Antique Letter Indoor/Outdoor Rug 4.1 5 213 213
Lovely Rug - Function & Aesthetics I ordered this based on the suggestion of a friend. She ordered several for her boat because of the outdoor use feature. I have a Chesapeake Bay Retriever who tends to deposit his hair/dirt on my carpets and always host friends/family who tend to be messy eaters. I bought this for my dining room with the hopes of having a durable rug that balanced classic colors with a unique design. It does vary slightly from the online image and is less tan-ivory in color, more of a khaki or tan-gray. I had seen this in reviews but preferred the darker color for my use, so it worked out fine. The text IS pixelated but the overall rug has a pixelated texture in both the weave and the design. I wasn't sure I would like it but I don't find it detracts from the appearance or quality. It has the durable appearance but still fits nicely in my dining room setting which carries a theme of antique wood and neutrals. I'm happy with it because it is bold in its own right with the informal design of text yet blends nicely with the room. Time will tell how it stands up to the dog and children but for the price, I'm happy with the quality. I also ordered the smallest size but haven't opened it yet to see the distribution of text. If you keep in mind the purpose of this rug being durable and functional for outdoor use and wear, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Definitely needs a nice rug pad to add that layer of comfort because it's thin (but what I expected for an outdoor rug) on my hardwoods. Loving this company! September 11, 2012
Exactly what I wanted Love this rug! With two dogs & two cats the easy cleanup of an outdoor rug was necessary & I had been debating about this one for awhile. Shipping was very quick & rug looks almost exactly as advertised. Only flaw I could find was writing doesn't look as crisp up close, but the overall look is still great. It's soft underfoot, not soft plush but smooth & comfortable to walk on. Also has been unrolled for only a couple hours and almost flat. Will definitely be ordering from Ballard again! September 10, 2012
Wonderful design, but poorly executed... I was VERY unhappy with this product. The lettering was very faint, and seemed to blend in with the overall color of the background...I expected the lettering to be a lot bolder and to show much more contrast with the rug's background color. September 9, 2012
nice looking durable runner and front mat. i purchased the runner and the small mat for my entrance way. both are very durable and nice looking, my husband who is somewhat a skeptic, really likes them which is a plus. however, the color is tan/caramel-like and has a warm undertone, not the beige cool color that the picture depicts, which another review mentioned so it was not a surprise, but know that it does look different. but i still love them and would buy them again! hope this helps! September 5, 2012
Color not as pictured If you are interested in this item I advise doing as I did and order the smallest size - this way you can determine if the background color is to your liking without spending a lot of money. The background is not as light as pictured in the catalog or on-line; it is the color of brown sugar or maple sugar. Also, what appears to be merely a subtle woven texture in the illustrations, is actually almost a polka dot pattern and is very dominant in the design. September 5, 2012
BEAUTIFUL RUG This rug is absolutely beautiful...the detail is amazing and just the perfect size. September 4, 2012
New home accent Adds character and warmth to our dining room just off the deck, a perfect bridge between indoors and out. A conversation starter! August 29, 2012
It is a great looking rug; good for summer! I did not give the rug 5 stars because of the material it is made of or perhaps it is the added polypropylene which does not allow the ends to lay flat. Any suggestions? August 24, 2012
Just what I was hoping for This rug is fun! I ordered this for my family room, which is done in shades of gold, ivory, and blue, and it is just what the room needed to pull it together. The material is soft on the feet, and it is true to size. I got the 5x7, and have no problem with the enlargement of the writing - it looks good. I will say, as have others, that it is darker than pictured. It is more of a light tan color, and the writing a dark brown. I have had to clean up a cat mess on it, and it cleaned up just fine. I am so glad I bought this! August 22, 2012
Very practical and stylish This is a nice solution for several outside entryways onto a large stone floor. The rugs are not too graphic, so they do not call too much attention to themselves, blend into the floor a bit, but have a witty style, and are flat (no tripping), easy to clean, soft on bare feet but durable--- a perfect solution. I have three the same size at three patio doorways into one Great Room. I am very happy with my considered choice of these. August 15, 2012
exactly like it shows I am very pleased with my purchase. This rug is beautiful. It is in my bedroom and really gives the room a pop. I would recommend this rug. Love it. August 11, 2012
Antique Letter Rug is a Great Value for the Price For under $100, I got the 5'x7' (rough size) and put it in the dining area under the table. It's a real brightener for the area and easy to spot clean by hand with soap and water. It took only 2-3 days to lay flat after being curled up in a tube. The weave is a little more obvious than the pictures show, but it's still a great value for the price. July 23, 2012
Great rug! I bought this to put in my French County kitchen and it looks great! Plus being indoor/outdoor the spills are no problem. July 16, 2012
great in every way Love the rug - it is in my office along with antique maps on the walls. The rug allows my office chair to glide over it easily. a great choice, delivered on time..thanks July 14, 2012
Charming rug Put the rug in guest room - low traffic and minimum care. Still trying to figure out what it says - French dictionary in hand. Only problem is that it has creases from being rolled/folded which should go away in time. July 13, 2012
Would reccomend Not the same color as shown in magazine however, is very nice and durable. Worth the price. July 12, 2012
Love, Love, Love it!!!! This goes great in my french cafe kitchen. Easy to clean. July 10, 2012
not what expected the rug looks great in the catalog, HOWEVER the color is completely shows as light beige (almost creme) w/grayish print AND IT IS a YELLOWISH (heavy on the yellow) BEIGE with BROWN writing. You would do your customers a huge service to state the color is NOT what appears in the catalog and to also tell exactly what the colors are i chose not to send it back as the hassle involved was too great but, i would not order again from your catalog based on this experience July 8, 2012
Great accent for my home office This rug meets my needs and adds to the decor of my home office. My black lab lays by my desk most of the day when I'm working and it is easy to vaccum and wash when needed. The design is a great accent to my red and white decor. I am looking forward to it wearing well. July 7, 2012
quality less than expected I was a bit surprised by the quality of the print when I received this rug. I bought the largest size so perhaps the scale on it is the problem, but the pattern is very pixellated and looks kind of cheap. It is also a VERY thin rug and not particularly soft. From down the hall looking into the room the rug looks good though, it's only as you get closer that the weave looks grainy. July 5, 2012
Great to look at. Loved it with my french decor. Gives a chic look to my apartment. July 1, 2012
Better than the picture... Upon receiving this rug, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the colors are warmer than the picture depicts. To me the rug itself looks a little more cream colored with greyish, brown writing. In person, the rug is definitely more of a beige, granola color and the lettering is milk chocolate. To some that might be disappointing, but to me it was a welcome surprise. It was just "ok" before and now I absolutely love it. Fits my house perfectly as I love warm colors. I highly recommend it. The picture doesn't do it justice. June 20, 2012
Durable and Decorative I purcased two sizes of this style of rug - one for my kitchen and one for a side porch - both high traffic areas. The rugs add a very nice touch of style with the confindence that they are durable. I sweep daily and they clean up well. June 3, 2012
High quality High quality. However, in the catalog the lettering appeared to be black. Was disappointed when I saw it was not but was able to use anyway. Really like it. You might consider mentioning the color in your catalog to prevent this mistake. Otherwise very pleased. May 23, 2012
This rug is softer than I expected Since I am using this cute rug in my bedroom, I was pleasantly surprised that it is fairly soft and smooth, for in indoor/outdoor rug. I would have liked to see more of the postal "stamps" on it but apart from that, it is really good-looking. May 18, 2012
Really suits our needs We use this rug in the family room. I bought it to lighten up the room for the warm weather and it is more than I expected. It makes a statement for the room and it is not scratchy or pinchy like many outdoor carpets, since my little grandsons are always playing on the floor. Low maintenance, good quality for a great price. May 14, 2012
Beautiful I love this rug. It is very beautiful. It is very thin but I like that. It lays nicely. It is in the room to the left of my front entry door and looks amazing!!! I would recommend it! May 13, 2012
Casual Chic I purchased two of these for my covered patio. Yes, the color is tan - darker than the picture - but it is a lovely neutral and looks great. I re-rolled the rugs the opposite direction and left them for a day, and they laid perfectly when placed on the patio. I think I could've just turned the edges under for a day and would have had the same result. Really...this rug is not as uncooperative as some of the reviews state! It is a good looking rug with an elegant casual attitude. I love mine! May 11, 2012
Not the color it seems! I was not pleased with the background color of this rug. In in catalog it looks quite light on the background and the real rug is much, much darker. I did not return it as it was too much trouble, but wish I had not selected it.I love all the Ballard purchases I have made except for this one. May 11, 2012
This rug is great! This rug is everything promised and DOES clean up with just a little soap and water!!! May 10, 2012
