Rated 1 out of 5 by Day21 In one month aged 5 years.
People that wrote good reviews must written right away after getting it.This mat looks beautiful at first but give it a month or two, it starts looking terrible like it needs to be replaced colors bleed into each other .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Janda I like the chevrons
It is REALLY thick. I trip over it sometimes as it is at my front door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCgal Works well
This is the second mat of this style I've purchased. They hold up well, but a number of years in the rain finally caused me to discard my first one. Looks cheerful at the door. This time I bought a red one and a green one. I'll swap them out so they can dry and for some variety.

by CT1shopper Beautiful mat
I purchased the black and ivory color, and as others have noted, the ivory is really quite dark - like a very antique ivory color and darker than it appears in photos. If that works for you, this is a beautiful, well made product. Yes, it is higher than most and is still shedding, but I think it will give me long use. As you can see from the photo, I also purchased the harlequin ribbon. It is a lighter ivory, also well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DocKJF great quality!
A great looking mat for my entry way. Much heavier and thicker than I had anticipated. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chinney Quality for the money
I love the pattern. It adds a little pizazz to the front entry. It is thicker than I expected, but that may also be because my old mat was so beat down. I am glad I purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Camilla Thick and beautiful. Will wear a long time.
Even though I had to wait through several rescheduled delivery dates over a period of weeks it was worth it.
My daughter painted my front door a lovely shade of yellow, bought a beautiful wreath and the French Court Mat is absolutely perfect. Everyone comments on our entry. All good.
Worth the wait.

I love harlequin so this mat fits the bill. I bought the red for added punch. It's gorgeous.

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!

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!

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!

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!
