Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 163 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shedding I purchased this carpet about 2 years ago now. I read reviews that it shed and had hopes it was just when it was first delivered. Unfortunately, this carpet still sheds 2 years later. I absolutely love it and it looks beautiful against my white couch and coffee table but the shedding is a pain. I'm always vacuuming and cleaning and I can't sit on it in black pants. Still looks beautiful though and I cant seem to replace it! February 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Color not as shown I bought this rug a little while ago and love it. I feel the quality is good. HOWEVER, the color is not the same as in the picture on this website, it has a blue/grey tint to it rather than a tan/beige. Luckily this fits in with my decor even better this way so things ended up working out. January 28, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by SHEDS I bought this rug almost 3 years ago. I thought the shedding would eventually get better with vacuuming and cleaning but it just gets worse. I even purchased the recommended rug pad so I know that's not the problem. The rug is pretty but for this amount of money I expect a quality product. I've read several rug recommendations and they say if the rug still sheds after 6 months, the quality was poor. I'm very disappointed because I've purchased many products from Ballard's and been happy with all of the others. January 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful but it sheds I love the soft colors in this rug, and it's softness. However, I purchased it about a year or so ago and it's still shedding fibers. I frequently find fur balls of fibers as well as loose fibers everywhere. My vacuum bag is always chuck filled with the fibers from this rug. I have no animals or children, it's just the two of us, so it's not getting much wear at all. I vacuum weekly, and would have expected the shedding to have stopped long before now. Beautiful looking rug tho. January 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The quality of this rug is top-notch It is a great addition to our dining room. I recommend it highly. January 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Classic! I have wanted to order this rug for a long time and finally got my chance when we needed a new runner for our entryway. It is beautiful and the colors are more vibrant than they appear in the catalog. Good quality, and it laid flat right out of the packaging. This rug is a bargain at the price! January 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Color not as online appearance Rug background is gray, not cream. Good quality, however. I would exchange for cream if I could. December 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous rug! So much prettier than picture and sample. Definitely on the gray side sea foam and mustard gold. I am so thrilled with it - I only wish I could find more to coordinate with it! Plush and beautiful- great buy! December 22, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The rug shed terribly The Catherine rug, which I purchased only a few months ago, has shed terribly. I had my professional rug cleaner include it when he came over to clean other rugs within my house and it ended up with large bubbles, that can no longer be smoother out. I love Ballard Designs a am a frequest shopper. Thus, I am very dissapointed. December 7, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beautiful but sheds like crazy I purchased this rug in Feb 2015. I love the colors and the price was very reasonable for the large size that we bought. It matches the decor in our family room beautifully and it is very soft to walk on. However, the shedding is unbelievable. Huge balls of wool would collect on the surface for the first few months, and each vacuuming would fill the entire bag. 9 months later, the balls are gone but there are still fibers all over my family room and they migrate throughout the entire house. I expect wool rugs to shed a bit (I've had others in the past), but this is excessive. Had I known, I probably would spent a little extra and purchased a different rug elsewhere. If it weren't for the shedding, I would have given 5 stars. December 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely pattern I love the pattern of these rugs, but the color from your photographs was not true to the colors that turned out to be on the rugs. I liked them, and could use them, but wish they had been more what you showed in your catalog and online. I think the color of the light you use to photograph them is not what most people would have in their homes, and thus affects the efficacy of the rug colors when one orders them. November 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gorgeous Rug I love this rug. It's more gorgeous in person! I will say the colors are a bit cooler than the online picture appears. It does shed,as others have said, but it's nothing a vacuum doesn't pick up. Totally happy and I would but it again. November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So elegant ! So soft ! Colors are beautifully muted. The background of the rug is grey. I ordered the 9x12. It is a terrific value. Just as I had hoped for. No shedding. No odor. October 20, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Warning This rug is not available in the colors advertised. Only SAGE (dark green) s available and will be sent to you. October 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love!!! Love the colors in this rug! Really lightened up my room because I have dark furniture. Looks beautiful! October 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful rug I purchased the Catherine rug in the green. It has many shades of the spa color with some golds and browns and has helped create a classy look to my living room. October 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! Beautiful runner, perfect fit for our new home's entryway. Soft to walk on, no shedding. Muted colors are just right. Couldn't be more pleased. October 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beware of colors This rug is beautiful quality in traditional Ballard style. However, the colors of this rug do not match the colors of the picture online or the sample I previously ordered. "Soft tonal palette of spa, grey, and caramel" is more like brightly colored palette of bright teal, gray, and caramel. It did not match my neutral designed room. Ballard was helpful in the return process which I am thankful for, but the picture is not an accurate color of what you will receive, and the sample I received was lighter color palette than my actual rug. I wish the colors would have been more neutral because I loved the quality and pattern of the rug. August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft and Beautiful I just purchased this rug, size 10x14, for my master bedroom. I did not pay the extra fee to have it put into the room which was risky because of its size however it was easy enough to take up stairs and unroll it under my bed and furniture with the help of my DH. The rug is wool so I imagine it may shed some as expected with all wool rugs. However, it is very soft and just the right thickness. The colors are true to the photo, neutral background (greige) designed with spa blue, soft greens and touches of gold and cream. All in all a great purchase and I had been searching for almost a year. This was affordable and just what we needed. August 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Difficult to Rate I am torn on my review of this product. The actual rug is pretty. It is well made, soft and is wearing well so far. The problem I have with the rug is that the color is not as pictured. I read tons of reviews before buying this rug so I knew that there was a high color variation in the product. I ordered a sample as suggested by other reviewers and found the sample not very helpful. It was not an actual sample of the rug pattern, but rather a sample of a striped rug to give you a small sampling of the colors used in the rugs. Which sounds helpful but if you can not see which colors there are more of or how they are contrasted in a pattern it is more difficult to get a good visualization on your purchase. The rug I received has a definite green overtone. It is beautiful, but the overtone makes it difficult to coordinate with other furniture pieces, art, ect. I just viewed pictures on a recent review and their rug looks much more grey and dark. I guess it could be lighting? but I can not imagine so. So, it is a beautiful product... but it is not an easy product to buy from the internet as it is difficult to predict how it will look in your own home. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful soft plush rug. Unfortunately this beautiful rug did not enhance my furniture and hardwood color. It is very soft and comfortable.i would have loved to keep it but color was just not right for my room. June 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Couldn't be happier with this rug! I had to wait for awhile for this rug (ordered the largest size) but I am so happy I stayed with my choice instead of ordering something else more readily available. It was certainly worth the wait! All the remodeling is finished and the rug absolutely is the element that ties everything together. Quality is excellent; looks very rich. I was hesitant because others stated that it sheds, but I did not notice this in the least. Very soft, color and feel! I had ordered the smaller version for the entry, so I knew the colors were exactly what I wanted. We love it! June 10, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Much lighter than expected Pictures (even those shared by other customers) show much richer tones. In re-reading reviews, I see that there has been some color variation with this rug. The one I received was much lighter than I expected. The spa color was very green. It did not compare to the other rugs I've ordered from Ballard. May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by my mother in mind When I had seen this rug for our bedroom, which has all the colors I was looking for, recently I lost my mother who was named Catherine, no hesitation to order it. It is beautiful in person. April 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love my Catherine Rug I've wanted this rug for over a year. I cut it out of the magazine, pinned it on pinterest, and read all the reviews. I finally bought it and I'm so glad I did!! It does shed, but so has all of my wool rugs. It gets better over time. The colors were perfect (a little more muted than the swatch). Everyone who comes over compliments it. I would definitely recommend it. April 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by There is a lot of "Spa" -- read that BLUE in this rug I just read another review (submitted after my order had been placed) which clearly states the color variances which do not show on the Ballard photos. It's a pretty rug but I was not expecting as much blue. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than the pictures! Perfect! I read tons of reviews and viewed all the "customer's photos" I could find and ordered the rug with quite a bit of trepidation. I wasn't worried about the shedding so many reviewers mentioned because I feel like Ballard makes a quality product and if their rugs shed, then any probably would...I figured shedding comes with the territory. My concern was whether or not the colors were going to be right and I didn't take the time to order a swatch (because I wanted to hurry and take advantage of a sale). The colors are PERFECTION. I feel like every photo I saw showed the rug looking so differently. Ballard shows it as a lighter/creamier color with the bluish-green almost not visible at all. In other customer photos it appeared very dark and I just couldn't get past how dark and bold the "caramel" parts were. The rug is overall a muted taupe, like other reviewers mentioned. To my relief, that caramel color is not bold, by any means, and blends in perfect balance with all the other colors and tones. The "spa" is much more visible than in the Ballard photos, but also doesn't "pop". The "spa" color is bluish just as it sounds, but each spa part is outlined in a darker greenish color (that you almost don't even notice) so that the rug doesn't have an only blue or only green feel to it. I don't think there is a true grey color in the rug, but it works beautifully with the taupes and greys in my room. I have it with a dark grey chair, taupe chair, and vanilla couch. Per.fect.tion. February 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the perfect rug! i saw this in the catalog but was leary of the color. Brought home rugs from several retail stores in the area and none of them worked. I ordered the swatch which helped a lot, then ordered a smaller size for the entry way. It was the perfect color, would fit with almost any color scheme, so I ordered the large one for the living room. It is absolutely beautiful and is a great quality regardless of the price which was great. Shedding has not been an issue at all. Beautiful muted colors and just ties together everything in the room. Love it -- a great buy! February 17, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice rug, but color different from picture I bought this for my dining room, thinking it was grey and cream with a rust or red narrow border. When I unrolled it, the 'darker grey' was actually a blue green. Not what I wanted, but it will work. I would order a swatch before ordering the rug. It also sheds like the Tabitha rug. February 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Quality great, but color not as shown Am I the only one who noticed the color difference between the pics and the actual rug? The colors as shown in the pic are my dream colors - really perfect, creamy and neutral. I ordered the 8 x 11 and the 10 x 14. I should've ordered a sample. When they arrived I was so disappointed by the blue green cast - not at all creamy as pictured and just wouldn't work in my family room, where I wanted the larger rug. That said, it was of such quality that I was able to use the 8 x 10 in my formal dining room. It really is a beautiful piece, I just wish they'd make this same rug in the color tones shown!
