Rated 4 out of 5 by Soothing Effect The muted color palette of the Catherine rug is soothing. I believe this rug is a good value for the price. June 1, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful rug!! This rug was absolutely gorgeous. It's slightly darker than the picture. The only disappointment I had was two small holes in the rug. I felt it would be a huge hassle to return it and get a replacement, so I made sure the holes were placed under my couch. Other than that, I was pleased. June 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this rug After reading some of the other reviews regarding the shedding of this rug I was leary, however the size, colors and price were just to much to pass up. I have had this rug for about a month and have not noticed any significant shedding and I am glad I made the decision to order it. May 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft in every way I love this rug. It exceeded my expectations. I purchased the runner for my hall, and it's perfect. The colors are very soft, and it's lovely to walk on. If you like serene colors, this might be for you. May 24, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty rug for the price This rug is exactly the color scheme I was looking for to complete my living room. The colors are not true in the catalog, so I highly recommend getting a sample swatch. It's worth the effort to make sure you know what you're getting. It is still shedding - I have vacuumed it several times and it's beginning to slow down now - but it has filled three vacuum cleaner bags. May 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by These rugs are good quality and look great. We are very happy with them. These rugs are good quality and look great. We are very happy with them. May 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for the price. Wonderful, muted colors. Goes with any decor. Does not shed more than any new wool rug. Very happy with my purchase. May 14, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by The catalogue color picture was deceptive. I was very disappointed because the rug is a lot darker than the picture in the catalogue. I am keeping it because the colors do blend with the room. I have looked for two years for a rug and I'm tired of looking. I needed tan, gray and green. It is hard to find. The colors blend with what I have but are not as bright and crisp as the catalogue picture suggests. The quality is excellent. It is soft and thick. I just wished it was lighter and brighter. May 12, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great rug, excellent price After searching high and low for just the right rug to "anchor" my kitchen, I purchased both the runner and 5x8 Catherine Rug. It coordinates perfectly with my kitchen countertop and tile, and the grey, spa, camel and brown give me lots of options for accessorizing. I would have given this rug 4.5 stars if I could, but it did shed alot the first few weeks (and is kind of still shedding). However, to get a rug that looks this good at this price point, I'm happy to do a little extra vacuuming! May 12, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful Rug, but color varies I actually bought this rug in the store and loved it. When it was in the store the bright lighting really affected the way it looked. When I brought it home it turned out to be much darker than I originally saw, but I still liked it. It did shed for a very long time so I called them and they are sending me another one. The customer service was great May 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth shopping around for! As a 50th birthday present to myself, I redecorated our master bedroom. This Catherine rug was the inspiration piece. I loved it in the catalog, purchased a 3x5 to view and instantly knew we had to have the 9 x 12 under our King Bed. It is plush and colors are warm and inviting, tranquil, just the look I was going for!! So many colors to draw out from the rug for bedding, draperies, throws, pillows etc, I am confident I won't tire of it before my next milestone birthday! May 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Even more beautiful then in the photo! Wow! Exceptional quality and beauty. Better then my expectations. It is even more beautiful on my floor then in the photo. The colors are subtle and create an oasis in my living room! May 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality The colors on the Catherine rug are different from the photograph in the catalogue but exactly fit the description, so read carefully. It is much more blue than beige so it didn't work in the room I had it in mind for and I was a little taken aback at first. However, I moved it to a room where it works perfectly and it's so gorgeous I can't stop looking at it. The quality is outstanding with a nice backing and very finely made. And the Malia seeded lamp in blue complements as a nice accent piece. Highly recommend but ask for a sample first. May 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Soft and beautiful. This rug is thick and soft. The colors tend toward grey, and the spa blue works perfectly with my decor. The motif takes its cue from traditional designs, but is really rather contemporary. We love it! May 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It Purchased this product directly from the store after seeing in the catalog. Color in person is as seen in catalog. This vacuums up really nice and doesn’t pile May 1, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by quality and color not as pictured Thank goodness I paid for a swatch! The photo online gives the rug a softness and richness with lighter colors that are just not there. I have no idea how they got the off-white to appear so bright. The rug is darker and dirty looking. I was mostly interested in the hue of blue. It is a dark blue/gray. Not what I consider a spa color. May 1, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great quality, colors not as pictured :( LOVE the quality, unfortunately the color is nothing like the picture in the catalogue or online. Since everything else in the room would have gone with the pictured color, I am forced to return the rug :( - I have learned my lesson, order the sample and avoid the hassle. April 29, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sheds but is beautiful The rug is exactly what I was looking for in terms of color, size, and pattern, the only issue is the fuzz. I don't mean it sheds in way where you see it building up on the rug but more that it puts a dust like substance on the surrounding surfaces due to the wool breaking down. April 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality; attractive design One always gambles with a rug purchased on-line but I couldn't be happier with the Catherine rug. It is good quality wool with practically no shedding at all; I expect it to hold up in a heavy traffic area. The colors are somewhat lighter than I expected but workable in many decors. I substituted it for an Oriental which clashed with my recently purchased modern chairs. The Catherine struck a balance between my traditional pieces and the new additions. April 22, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by This rug not only is small in size, but also sheds. Although the Catherine Rug is very beautiful, when I had opened the packaging, I was very disappointed. Not only is the material not of the best quality, it continues to shed, almost like a rough out door mat. Another concern was the size of the rugs offered are just too small. I wish there would have been a wider selection of lengths and widths. For the price I paid for the rugs, I expected higher quality in fabric and an overall better design. April 21, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful Tones But Sheds It's very difficult to find this color range in a rug. I searched for months and finally decided on this rug. The muted tones are very true to the colors in Ballard Designs' catalog otherwise I found it hard to judge on the website. The background color is light gray and that may not be clear. Nice, thick, soft rug. I bought two runners and two 3x5s. I am torn about if I would recommend this to a friend. I would for the colors and the plushness, but these rugs do immediately create wool fur balls on the edges with very little activity on them. I hope this subsides over time. April 18, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great neutral greige rug I recently purchased the 8x10 Catherine rug. I was expecting it to be more grey than it definitely is a more grey/beige tone than a pure grey. It also has a lot of greenish tones in the design. I really like the rug, but it definitely seemed different than displayed online. If you're unsure, definitely order the swatch first. Also in regard to the does shed heavily, but I've had that experience with any wool rug I've purchased in the past. It requires constant vacuuming in the beginning. I've purchased much more expensive wool rugs from othe stores and they've shedded just as much as this one. The price for this rug makes it an excellent value! April 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made with beautiful colors This is a thick rug with beautiful colors. Very pleased. April 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Calming Colors I orginally bought the 8x10 to see the colors in person and I have to admit, the rug is slightly darker than the picture looks online and in the catalog. The spa blue and caramel stand out a bit more than the picture lets on but all in all, it's a beautiful rug! Good quality, plush and beautiful pattern. I have this rug in room with tans and beiges and it fits perfectly (see pic attached). I would highly recommend this rug.--I even just purchased the 9X12 for another room! April 14, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Color Mishap The colors in these pictures are MUCH lighter than the actual rug. April 13, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful Rug The colors & the feel of this rug are very soft & beautiful. It does shed quite a bit - even after 2 months on the floor - but the beauty of it makes up for this. I'm hopeful with regular vacuuming the shedding will diminish over time. April 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality and colors This rug is a little different style than I purchased before, so it took me a little while to get used to it. Now that I have, I love it. It does have a grey tinge to it, as other reviews have said, but it's a very nice shade. Others have mentioned the shedding, and it did shed for awhile, but not as much now. If you have ever had a wool rug, you know this is normal. I love it and am very happy with my purchase. April 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Value and Beautiful Rug This looks perfect in our bedroom. I almost did not purchase it because of the reviews I read about the amount of shedding, but I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. The colors are perfect, it's plush and I have had NO shedding at all with this rug. It's a great price and looks beautiful. March 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy colors to work with! Beautiful rug and the colors were exactly like the photo in catalog! Very satisfied! Love the rug! March 18, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Don't count on the sample Can't speak specifically to the rug quality. I did order the rug swatch--and I got a 5"x 5" square that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to get a decent idea of the colors in the rug. I was probably 80% sure before the sample came that I would end up ordering the rug and getting a chair to coordinate. I was so disgusted by the pathetic size--and the fact that it didn't ship until a full week AFTER I was told it shipped--that I said 'forget it.' March 14, 2012
