Rated 1 out of 5 by jakm Mat sheds too much
I purchased two of these mats. I love the vibrant colors. I have the mats on my covered patio. Unfortunately, the mat began to shed immediately. So, every time someone steps on the mat, especially in bare feet after coming in from the pool, I have the shedding mat tracked into my home. I am so disappointed at how quickly the mat became useless to me. I have shopped through Ballards for a long time and have never had any issues with any other items. I am now searching high and low for the red harlequin design in a door mat but made of another material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tribecamom2 Not up to Ballard standards
First, let me say that I love everything that I have ever gotten from Ballard and am always very pleased with the quality. However, this doormat started shedding almost immediately and as a result, no longer resembles the picture. It now has a completely mottled look and is really not attractive any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by larrykas Excellent quality a doormat, above all others
All of my purchases from Ballard's designs have been superior quality. I will not go anyplace else for my home decorating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Harleyboy The mat looks great !
The mat is a well made addition to our lanai entrance. Delivery was fast. I bought two of these matts and I am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAROK Thick, thirsty, and almost too good looking to use as a door mat
We have a small interior courtyard and my plan is to slowly rework it so that it resembles the beautiful courtyards of New Orleans. This door mat is my first acquisition toward that goal. It is very thick and sturdy. I highly recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by VAKitchenDesigner SO very disappointing of late
Recently purchased French Coir Mat (November 2014) - SHED TERRIBLY to the extent where I HAD TO THROW IT OUT. I should note that I've purchased several of these over the years, but the last one I ordered (a replacement for another Ballard French Court Coir Mat which was fine for years) proved not up to the task. PLEASE address the quality control on these lovely mats as they are not up to Ballard standards!

This is a nice, thick door mat perfect for front entry. I love the pattern on it and it is a real feature at the front door

It's looks so cheerful at the front door. I bought the red one and nearly everyone has commented on it. I was surprised how deep it was. Very substantial. I love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by TribecaDweller Not made for outside?!??!? It's a DOORMAT
Have only had approx a month and it already looks years old. I live in Northern California in a very temperate climate, but after just a few days outside it no longer looks nice - and by shuffling your feet, as one does on a doormat, the fibers have loosened causing the natural color to bleed into the black - would have expected higher quality from Ballard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shoppinsharona French court coir mat
this mat deserves 5 stars for its appearance. However, it is too thick! You can easily stumble on it, if you forget to lift your feet up considerably high for a mat. IT takes you by surprise and even my dog had a bit of a time getting used to the " extra step"

Rated 1 out of 5 by InferiorDecor Doesn't hold up
Had this for about a year. Its uncovered and terribly worn and faded on one side. Falling apart. Its also so thick it looks odd on a raised porch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JKLmom Very thick. I keep tripping on it!
I was using this mat inside my home, when coming trough our sliding glass doors. I wanted the puppy and us to wipe our feet and paws on it. I guess it really needs to go outside. This mat is so very thick that everyone trips over it. I'd return it, but paying for the postage, I may as well keep it and use it outside somewhere.

This welcome mat was exactly what I had been looking for! I live in a Victorian home with a large front door and I needed a proportionately sized mat. The design is beautiful and it is very thick and sturdy. It's perfect. I'm very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DesiLU What a great find!
This is a very well made mat. It is just as shown in the picture. It goes very well with my newly stoned Portico
and iron entry doors. I purchased the Black/Tan and the colors are vibrant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunsetNJ Wow...Stunning!
I just received this mat and it is stunning in person! Even my kids, who never have an opinion on home decor, commented on how nice this mat was. Great vibrant pattern. Hope it holds up and weathers well bc I really love it!

This mat is beautiful, lush and thick, and the color are very rich. I purchased it on sale, which made it an even better buy, but it was a great deal at full price!

This product looks really good outside my front door. The design is elegant and it's thick and does the job of cleaning visitors' shoes. Looks like it will last many years, too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tifny18 Very pretty but don't use it to wipe your feet on!
This mat is very pretty once it comes out of the box. But if you use it daily be ready to purchase one every year. It sheds a lot and the black fades fairly quickly. Only buy this product if you are going to use it for decoration.

Rated 1 out of 5 by chary I am not pleased with this product
I am very unhappy with the purchase I made for this product. The material of this mat is already tearing apart,it is very expensive and I have been a member shopping here for along time. Instead of adding a decor to my home,it made my home dirtier believe it or not. When my kids walk in the door and step on the mat,because it is tearing apart it does not pick up on the dirt the mat ingredients are tearing apart and when my kids or I walk into the home the floor gets dirtier. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I wish to return this product and i want to know how to return it. I am a customer for years,and just am disappointed with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppingMaxie Great Mat !!!
This mat is very attractive and durable. I am hoping it does not fade (have one on my front porch and one on my patio that is covered). I highly recommend this to your customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2magnolia attractive and functional
The rug is functional as well as being very attractive. I have 2 dogs that swim in a pond and after a very busy day of chasing frogs (and NEVER catching them, thank heavens) they come bounding in the backdoor and cross the exterior thresh hold where the rug catches a lot of their outdoorsy stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crazy4ct French Court Coir Mat
I LOVE this door mat! It is thick, tough, bright, cheery and makes a lovely statement at our front door. It is our second one. The first is just two years old and although it is under a porch roof, it gets wet at times. This spring it had begun to look not only very dark in color, but quite worn on the long edges. I moved it to the garage where we enter the laundry room as guests rarely see that area. This new one is "smashing" and something to be proud of :)
Thank you for offering a lovely product.
I also own one of your iron paper towel holders. It is about 7 years old and still looks as nice as the day it arrived....Love that too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hfoxy Makes a stately entrance!
We live in an enclosed condo complex, so I am not concerned with the inability to hold up in weather. It is a high mat and we had to adjust for about a day so not to trip on it. Now we are used to it and it is gorgeous!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LawyerMom Poor quality- messy shedding and fades quickly!
I loved the look of this entry mat, but was disappointed almost immediately! Initially, the mat sheds terribly and tracks all through the house. Within a few weeks the color was completely worn off in the center with noticeable wear pattern. I had the rug less than a year and threw it out because it looked so unattractive. Very disappointing.

This mat is really well made and very attractive. My house is tan with black shutters and a red door. The mat looks awesome on my front porch.
