Fabulous looking rug. It does lose its sheen quickly after use, though. But it's still perfect for my front porch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KRC1 Love them! 3rd time I've bought them!!!
This is the 3rd time I have bought these French Court Coir mats. I buy them 2 at a time for my 2 back doors leading to the back porch. I replace mine every two years but I always seem to go back to the same design. They would last longer if there was some protection over them but I leave them out all year long exposed to the elements and though they still are nice and thick after 2 years the paint eventually blurs and I like for mine to look crisp and new. Absolutely love them!

I can't tell you how impressed I am with the two mats I bought. Glad I got the larger size, they just look fabulous! They are also like nothing you see in any store around. Very good looking and excellent quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BallardBuyer4Life Looks cute online, but a huge disappointment
I purchased the small and medium size, the small one doesn't shed as much as the medium but it still is a pain. the medium size one has been a nightmare and so unattractive since I took it out of the package. It just keeps on shedding; I've tried to sweep it, shake it, and vacuum it. NOTHING WORKS! They said to keep it in a covered area, and I did not but weirdly enough it looked better off it got rained on. Either way, save your money and don't buy this.

I love how thick and durable this is! I got it in Red as it's great for Feng Shui/ good luck to have red at your front door. Very high quality!

Rated 3 out of 5 by deedyede Beautiful mat- did not last a year
I am replacing my mat after a year. Absolutely loved the design, but it shed a lot and is very shabby looking now. I do like the design and as there is 20% off right now, I have decided to reorder another mat for the holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewfieMom I absolutely love it.
I absolutely love this mat and the classy touch it puts to my back door entrance. However, I am on my third one. They do not wear as well as I would hope, especially if gotten wet. Yet the price is reasonable enough to justify frequent replacements which I will continue to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gracie1 Love the green color with lavender points
I have been wanting to purchase the coir mats for a long time..so last month I bought 3 for all my doors! I am very pleased with the green color with a pop of lavender at the points. A friend of mine has the black mat and it looks great as well.

I purchased the French Court Coir Mat in green and it's fabulous! Practical, but pretty, too! It really spiced up our boring front entry. I'm loving the green because it's a nice contrast against our brick home, looks great with fall plants, and will also complement our Christmas nutcrackers.

Love my new black and white harlequin motif coir mat. We ordered the large size. It is at my front door in our vacation home and just sets the tone for the vibe I'm going for in our house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shop4MyHome Stylish but more of a mess than help
I looked at this mat for a long time as it was just the right style and size for my covered patio. So even though some complained of its shedding, I made the purchase. However, even living in a city where there is hardly any bad weather to speak of, and being a woman with one small dog (so this hardly got abused), this mat was worse than nothing.
It started looking bad right away. And worse, it shed so many coir "threads" that I actually stepped over it to get into house as I didn't want to track in the mess! I tossed it after just a couple of months. Such a shame, because it looked great the first day...

I purchased this mat in black for the front entrance along with 8 of the rubber stairtreads on the brick steps leading up to the door. It has totally transformed the front of the house which was very plain , but looks very classy now. I have had tons of compliments and inquires as to where I found such a great mat! Love love love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by FunnyGirl It's very fashionable...great for entrance
I love these ....have them at both doors. They are great. The only problem is they fade. If they didn't fade they would last longer and look better . As it is, they last about one year........look pretty shabby after that, but apparetnly I like them so much , I keep buying them.

This is a good mat & very distinctive looking. Its a great way to identify our front door vs. the neighbors. We live in an apartment building, so it will never have to stand up to the elements, but it's been perfect for "wiping the streets" off your shoes before entering the house. Its coir, so we did have some initial shedding, but nothing excessive and now it's fine. We bought the wide one because have the space and it's turned a small dead space into an excellent corner for catching the water runoff of wet umbrellas & boots or setting bags down on a protected surface while juggling kids & keys.
High quality & great value...something I've come to expect from Ballard.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ridiculous Looks great at first doesn't hold it's color for long.
I had looked at this door mat for so long but price always made me hesitate, since I could find nothing else I liked I decided to purchase it. Well I loved it at first but not more than a week or two of having it the color has faded and the straw fibers come out constantly. Maybe if it were half the price I wouldn't be so upset but for such pricey mat I expected better quality.

This mat is exactly what I was looking for - it has character and charm without being cutsy. It seems to be very well made and will hopefully last for years!

I have never used this catalogue before, however, I found from the beginning a very professional person to talk with, and then when this mat, ordered in green and black, perfect. I had never used this company, but will come back again. The follow through was great. The mats are thick and lovely.
