Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 163 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous rug and oh-so soft! I ordered the 8 foot runner for a hallway between our master bedroom and the master bathroom and a 9x12 for our master bedroom. These rugs are beyond my expectation. The colors are beautifully muted while adding texture to the room. I wanted an interesting, understated look and it's exactly what was delivered. Yes, they do shed, but nothing out of the ordinary, and they are so soft! I can't believe the amazing quality, especially for the price. This is the first purchase I've made from Ballard's and it definitely won't be the last. Thank you, Ballard, for your beautiful designs. And thank you to all the previous reviewers, your insightful and helpful reviews made the decision so much easier. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate! February 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the colors We really love this rug the colors work perfectly in our dining room. It is shedding a lot but hopefully that will slow down soon. February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I'm very pleased with this area rug. I selected it for our foyer, and wanted it to coordinate with the existing larger rug that is nearby. This is of the same high quality and coloration, so I'm overall very pleased. January 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, well-made rug; super fast shipping! I had been eyeing this rug for over a year and was very hesitant to purchase because of the ratings about shedding. When the item went on sale, I had to purchase it! The deal was great and I just loved the look of it. I ordered the rug on a Monday night and it was at my doorstep that Friday (4 days!). When we unrolled it, it surpassed my expectations. It looks even better than I thought it would. Yes, it does shed, but not any worse than other wool rugs I've purchased. It usually takes several months for the shedding to subside, but it's so worth it! I am extremely happy with this product. Thank you, Ballard! November 23, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Keeps on shedding! I love the color and look of this rug, but it does not stop shedding. I have had it for about 2 months now and find the fibers all over my house! My first floor is all hardwood so this had been very difficult to keep up with. I used to have a yellow lab and it sheds as much as my dog did! Not sure I will be able to keep it, but don't know if I can return it now! Very frustrated! October 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but Green This rug is great quality and is the perfect size for the space in my guest room. The "spa" color in this rug is definitely greener that I expected; it's not as beige or neutral as it appeared in the catalog. I would recommend this product but also suggest ordering a swatch, if you don't want the green hue. October 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous rug at a great price This rug is so reasonably priced. While not hand-knotted, it is hand-tufted and 100% wool. It has beautiful muted colors that would complement a variety of decors. It is thick and comfortable underfoot as well. October 3, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Color So Different This is a lovely rug in quality and pattern but the color is very different from the website or catalogue. It has a grey background with a greenish tint. Am disappointed about that. The swatch I received was merely stripes of different colors, therefore, there was no way to determine the overall coloring. I ordered the runner, so will keep it. Ballard should change the photos of this rug. September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it. Reading reviews and getting a sample of the carpet helped me decide to order this rug. The 9 x 12 works perfectly in our family room. Ordered the spa colored pillow also plus spa salad plates to put on the wall. It all coordinates great. Vacuumed the rug for the first time today. The shedding wasn't as bad as the last wool rug we had. That seemed to be a big problem with some but certainly not for me. I definitely would recommend it. It's true, it is more of a gray taupe and not as beige as I thought it would be before I read the other reviews. That color works fine for our area though. Here are a couple of pix. August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous neutral-colored rug; shedding a non-issue First let me say that I never actually take the time to write product reviews, but I've been so happy with this purchase that I'm making an exception! Rug is soft, colors are true to catalog photos, pattern is interesting without being glaring or too busy. I'm using it in a study with desks/bookshelves around the perimeter of the room (nothing in the center of the room to cover rug), so needed the pattern to be gentle and it is. Finally, I was pretty concerned about shedding based on previous reviews and have found this to be a non-issue. Buy this rug! :) August 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous Rug!!!! I am in love with my new rug! I have been searching for months for the right colors for my family room and this one is definitely it! I ordered the swatch before buying it so that helped tremendously. I bought the 9x12. The main color of the rug is light taupe (gray/taupe). The border is a slightly darker taupe. The blue accent is a green/blue so it could go with teal or even seafoam. We have gray/beige walls (Sherwin Williams Anew Gray) and this rug coordinates perfectly The rug is very soft. It does shed quite a bit but I have had wool rugs in the past that were worse so I am not concerned with that. It arrived in just a few days after I ordered it. The delivery company was great. They scheduled the appointment and called 30 minutes ahead so I didn't have to stay home all day waiting. When I unrolled the rug there was a new bag inside in case I needed to return it - very smart idea. After buying two big rugs from another company and returning both, I was very happy that this one worked! Getting the swatch ahead of time was the key. I would give this rug a 10 if I it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful Rug But Still Shedding! This rug is beautiful and when it arrived, the colors were exactly as I expected. I ordered several rug swatches from Ballard Designs, but I didn't order a swatch of this rug. When the swatches came, I realized I wanted a rug with more subtle neutrals, so I found the Catherine and just went ahead and ordered it. It looks great in the room with our taupe walls and white trim and Brazilian cherry floor. My only complaint is I have had this rug about eight months now, and it continues to shed and shed and shed! Little fiber balls are all over my first floor from this rug.I have one other area rug on the first floor and it never shed as much as this rug. So while I do lover the rug, I am eagerly awaiting the day when it will cease shedding. April 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really nice however colors not what I expected. I read other reviews that said the rug was more green than in the photos and I was ok with that. However I would say it is more of a teal than green. It threw me a little. Also the full pattern leans more towards modern graphic than traditional Persian. Great quality and super comfy under foot. April 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the colors, love the feel. Lots of "fluff" coming off rugs but I am sure it will end soon, I think my dog is alergic to the wool but I'm alergic to her so we are even! April 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Rug! Great value! I was skeptical of ordering the Catherine rug based on the numerous reviews about it shedding horribly. But I fell in love with the color palette and pattern of this rug, so I had to take the chance. After shopping for a rug for almost a year, I couldn't wait to receive the rug today. It's absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The colors work perfectly in my living room and I have light tan walls and a beige sofa set. I don't think I could have found a more perfect rug. As for the shedding. I have dark laminate floors which show everything. It does shed but so far it hasn't been that bad. When I rub my hand back and forth on the carpet you can see the fibers fall onto the wood. I have not vacuumed yet, but I'm hoping after a couple times, the shedding won't bother us. As of now, I'm willing to put up with any shedding because the look of this rug exceeds my expectations. April 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well worth the price. Bought this rug as a runner for my front hall. It's really great quality, nice and thick and should wear well. So glad I got it - especially on sale! February 19, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by beautiful but sheds! The colors in the rug are beautiful and compliment the furniture in my family room nicely, but it's like having a giant shedding dog in the house! I vacuumed the rug everyday for the first week and filled a Dyson canister every time. I now vacuum every other day for the past month and a half and STILL get a lot of shedding but not as bad as the first week, maybe 1/3 of a canister. Do NOT get this rug if you are a neat freak or if you have small children that will be spending time on it. February 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Darker than it appears in catalogue This rug caught my eye several months ago. We just replaced the carpeting in our bedroom with hardwood flooring and wanted an area rug under the bed. In my search for a 9 x12 rug I began to realize the cost for an all wool rug could run me over a $1000. Not exactly what I wanted to spend for a rug that is mostly under my bed. I originally liked this rug for its neutral tones. However upon delivery it is clearly not a cream color background. It is a little gray or ashy almost looking as though it is dirty. With that being said, I am not returning it. I waited for almost 3 months for it to be delivered. I got in for a great price (much less than $1000) and the quality and feel of the rug is much to my liking. Just not a fan of the color. Would have liked it to be more of a beige or cream background. The other colors in the rug are blue and green and soft apricot. February 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautifully made all wool rug. In the pictures on the site, the rug has a taupe color, but in person it was really grey. I could not use grey in a taupe room, so sadly, am returning the rug. February 15, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Color variance I ordered 5 Catherine Rugs in 3 sizes. They are all coming at different times because they were backordered several months. Therefore, the color varies greatly from one to the next. So far, I had to return 1 of the 3. I hope the next 2 are the same color. January 29, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Looks nice but sheds a lot We've had the rug for less than two months and it is still shedding. It is like having a dog hidden in the rug. It almost fills the vacuum cleaner canister each time it is vacuumed. The edges are already starting to show wear (there are only 2 of us using the rug). The two stars are because the rug is very nice looking and has great colors. January 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful rug I have had this rug for over 6 months now and love it more than when I bought it. It does not pill like rugs from other major retailers and it wears beautifully. I have bought many rugs from BD and never been disappointed! This one far exceeds the price. Centerpiece of my room. December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Catherine Rug Love this Rug ! Nice colors... good quality for the price. You won't be disappointed with this one. November 5, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Color issue Though the rug is beautiful and I got it for a good price, the color does not match the pictures in the catalog or online--at all! I was looking for a more beige tone and this rug is much darker and has an overall blue tone to it. I was so disappointed! I ended up returning it because I just didn't want to settle. The hunt goes on... I do want to say that delivery was very fast and they make it very easy to return if you are not satisfied. November 2, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pretty but messy I bought this rug despite the reviews that indicated it's propensity to shed. I couldn't ignore the color pallet and low cost. I wondered how much could it really shed? Well, a lot! My house now sports a thin layer of carpet fibers all over the hard wood floors and other solid surfaces. The vacuum dust container must be emptied due to fibers a minimum of 3 times each time I vacuum the rug, which is frequently. I'm still hoping it will finally give up all the loose fibers and quit producing such a mess. October 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent Rug I really love this rug, but have to agree with other reviewers, it does shed quite a bit. Not a problem in my home. With 3 kids and a dog, I vacuum frequently anyways. The colors are just right for my home and taste, though the creamy background color that the website shows is in reality darker and more of a grayish color. I personally would have preferred it to be lighter, but it hides dirt well. All in all, I am happy with the rug, and would purchase again. October 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Rug I have had this rug about a month. When it first arrived, I was really worried about the color. It looked more gray than cream and almost had a sage green tint to it. I bought it for our bedroom, which has cream and teal walls. Once situated in the room it looks very nice. The rug is thick and soft. I don't think shedding is an issue, but I expect any wool rug to shed a little. October 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! I ordered four of these beautiful rugs and I couldn't be happier with the way they look and feel. Thank you Ballard for another quality product! October 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Nice Rug! This was my first purchase from Ballard Designs. I'm very happy with rugs. They are of excellent quality, are plush, and are exactly as pictured in the catalog. One rug arrived in about week. The other two arrived in about two weeks. I highly recommend this rug and Ballard Design's service. I am completely satisfied. October 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for a dining room I was a little reluctant to buy this rug because I thought the colors would be too brown, but I was pleasantly surprised with the beautiful muted blue and green colors. Yes, it sheds, but I have it in my dining room so no one is sitting on it. Vacuuming solves the problem for me. I probably would not like this in an area where anyone would sit on it, but for my dining room, it's perfect. October 20, 2013
