Rated 5 out of 5 by Foremma Loved the Chevron Stripe rug, but not so much the Marina
Absolutely love the Chevron stripe rug, as well as the colors (cream/mineral), but, within the same order, I ordered the Marina rug (cream/mineral) & the band print-trim on one end, was completely crooked. Since I had already ripped the labels off the back, knew it would be more difficult to return it, so I decided to just put it in a bathroom. Will probably order one more Chevron stripe to replace the Marina, in the room I had ordered the Marina for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PhoenixDecor BEAUTIFUL Chevron Stripe Rug!
I ordered the black/sand chevron stripe rug for my patio and it's absolutely beautiful! The sand color is definitely a beachy sand color. The black is definitely black (some have said it is a soft black - I find it to be a dense black for a rug#. The quality of the rug is excellent. When I tell friends what I paid for it, they can't believe it! I was so pleased with my purchase that I ordered the gray one for my bedroom and the mineral one for my guest bedroom. The gray/sand rug is equally as beautiful as the black/sand rug. FYI, my black rug and the gray rug were both ordered in the large size #7'7" x 10'x10"# and the mineral rug was ordered in the next size down #5'3"x7'7"#...the stripes on the larger size are thicker, whereas the stripes on the smaller sized rug are thinner. This made me immediately prefer the larger size rug with the thicker #bigger# stripes. Also, the black/sand AND the gray/sand rugs look like more expensive rugs than the mineral/ivory. The mineral/ivory appears to have a slight sheen to the thread, which to me doesn't look as nice. I HIGHLY recommend the black/sand AND the gray/sand in the large size. Pictured here is the black/sand in the 7'7" x 10'10" Hope this helps!

We bought the gray stripe rug for use in a very high-traffic back entry between our kitchen and family room and love it. I continue to be amazed by its durability and beauty. It defines the space, basically eats dirt and stains and can be vacuumed or swept. We have spilt red wine and coffee on it, tracked mud and paint on it, and rinsed it all right off. I cannot recommend it enough. The only drawback I have found is I cannot get one corner to keep from flipping up. We rotated it so that it was in the least "traffic-y" space, and it was not bad enough for me do deduct a star!

I ordered this rug for my townhouse patio. First, I have to say it exceeded my expectations in terms of look and performance. It really changed the ambiance of my patio, making it feel cozy and inviting. While setting up the patio with the new rug, I got dirt from my planters on the rug. The dirt wiped off easily using water and a paper towel and it looked perfect afterwards. The only issue I have is that the rug came with a giant snag, a manufacturer's defect. The rug was not expensive and I figured that it will be too much trouble to return so I used a crochet hook and pulled the snag through to the other side. It was a little off but it looks good enough to keep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luv2polka Just what I was looking for!
Could not be happier with my purchase! It arrived in a timely manner and the color is as described. It is a very good quality for the money - just wish Ballard would offer free shipping more often - I think I would be inclined to make more purchases if they did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dishondesigngal Love this rug.
I am very happy with this rug. I had been looking forever for a black and cream chevron runner that was long enough for my bathroom and affordable (under 50 dollars) - something that has been really hard to find. This met all the requirements, but I was concerned that it was an indoor/outdoor rug, I had read that it was surprisingly soft for an outdoor rug.
The runner arrived in just a few days and before I rolled it out, I was still iffy, but reviewers don't lie... it's softer (and thinner) than you would think... not plush soft, by any means, but a bit softer than a sisal rug.
I put it in a guest bathroom. I don't think I would like it in an everyday bathroom with a shower that is used every day, but for my guest bathroom it's perfect - I do have a bath mat right outside the tub.
I like that the chevron design is a good scale for a bathroom... it's not too overpowering. The stripes are big enough to make an impact and not make you bug-eyed, yet small enough scale for my bathroom.
When you first roll it out, it doesn't lay flat, but after a few days it does. I love the impact of the black and cream chevron. Would definitely recommend it, but if you are looking for a soft, plush rug, you won't love this. If you're going for size (long runner) and impact (nice pattern), I think you will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valeff Love these! Perfect for kitchen!
I ordered three of these rugs for my home in the black. I put one inside my front door, and two in my kitchen (one in front of the sink, one in front of the oven). They are perfect. They don't attract dog hair like the ones we had there before and I know that when I clean them, I can take them outside and hose them down. Love these!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MamaKT Better as an outdoor rug.
I ordered this rug in the 4x5.7 hoping to use in my kitchen. However after trying it there for a few weeks, I am moving it outside. Seems too rough for indoor use. Also, I can't get the corners to lay completely flat without curling a bit.

I bought the runner in the gray color to go behind our bar. I thought it would be easy to clean, since it's an indoor/outdoor rug. Very happy, love the design & color!

This rug is perfect for our office, we were looking for a thin rug that would fit well under our furniture. It looks great. We were a little concerned about it being too bold but the grey and "white" are both nice neutral colors. The white is definitely a cream type color.

I absolutely love this rug! It's softer than I expected for an outdoor rug and within a couple of days it was laying completely flat. I have the black and sand and the colors are so neutral and look great in my family room! I am so obsessed with this rug I might need a runner or front door rug as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mrsb Too thin and lightweight
I purchased this rug for my kitchen. It is so so thin and lightweight that it will not stay down on the tile. I am using a rug pad as recommended but its lifting up everywhere. The colors are pretty but that's about it. I will be returning this rug. Its as lightweight as a dish towel.

I loooove my new chevron stripe indoor/outdoor rug. The key word here is "outdoor". I have two boys under age 5 and these type of rugs I have found are the BEST to have inside. They spill constantly on this rug and it is sooo darn easy to get the spills out, it seems illegal! I have a striped one from a couple years ago on my back deck, as well, and it has lasted a long time. I rinse it with the hose a couple times during the summer then just hang it over the fence to dry. I recommend these to anyone and I love using them inside. I hope chevron doesn't go out of style anytime soon since this rug will be in my living room for a long time!

I ordered the grey chevron in an 8X10 and it has been wonderful! The colors are beautiful (I agree that the cream is not quite as bright as it looks online, but is still amazing!) and it has been a great addition to our family room. The rug is soft under-foot and is an easy clean with our 2 dogs. I'm thinking of ordering the same rug in a 3x5 for our foyer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by elafram Great product for the price
We purchased this product because of the great price point, design, and durability. As other reviews mentioned, it is more of a blue gray than gray gray. For being an indoor/ outdoor rug, it is really soft. It really has a great look to it. Wish it came in even larger sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jjsmom great style, good value
I needed a durable rug for a high traffic area in my kitchen. This rug fit the bill nicely. I really love that it's fun, funky and durable. I didn't have to sacrifice style for functionality (at an affordable price to boot!) The only issue I had, which made this a 4 stars review instead of 5, is once rolled out the rug didn't want to lay flat. We were tripping over the edges for a few weeks before it finally began to behave.

Great rug; durable, well-made plus I love the chevron design. So glad I bought it. Kind of wished I had bought the 8 x 10 instead of the 5 x7, but, oh well. Still very happy with my purchase.

Bought this rug for a beach house dining room. The pattern and color were exactly what I expected from the catalog and the rug is comfortable under my feet. It fit perfectly with a yellow and gray decor. I am getting ready to order two more of the outdoor Ballard rugs, as I am delighted with the quality and the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by furniturefan Very happy with the rug
I purchased two of the 8x10 chevron rugs for my living & dining rooms. I've been very happy with them, they were just as described in the product description. They are thin so if you are looking for something thick/lush, this isn't for you, I do plan to use a rug pad with them which will help to "plump" them up a bit. I purchased the gray/cream version, they were an awesome buy for a large area rug and have given my rooms a nice pop of style without being too loud. The one small complaint I have is that while I've had them for a couple months I'm still waiting for them to lie completely flat, there are still a few waves/bumps in them from being wrapped up in the packaging - but it's not a big deal. Really happy with these rugs!!

I purchased the gray chevron stripe rug for my covered front porch door. It looks wonderful on the slate floor and lends an updated look! Easy to clean, doesn't track in, light to lift and sweep around, and lays flat.
Even my 30-something daughters gave it the thumbs up
