This mat looks great at my front door with a pot of pansies and a wrought iron bumble bee!

Rated 4 out of 5 by gramps red mat
I bought the largest size. It was a sort of blood red with the "white" diamonds being a light gold. It is about one inch deep--quite substantial. I'm happy with it and would recommend it to someone else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bof3 Attractive, but ....
The mat is thicker than I realized and therefore my door rubs over it every time it is opened and closed. Also, the coir "sheds", resulting in this being tracked into my house and creating a mess. I have removed it from my side entry and put it in the garage where the mess won't be a problem. Too bad , since it is a nice looking mat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rawree Very Pleased With This Mat!
I got this coir mat in red, it looks so good with my red front door! I absolutely love the design. The only thing that's not perfect about this mat is that it sheds beige-colored fabric strings. I need to brush the strings away from the mat from time to time...otherwise, great product!

I ordered two of these, one for the front door and one for the backdoor and I really like them. They are well made and thick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tiburon Sheds too much...design is obscured after just a couple of weeks
I wish I could recommend this mat as I loved the design, but the coir sheds so much that the nice, crisp black diamonds it arrived with are almost completely gone in the first two weeks. I wasn't even able to brush it off with a stiff brush. Too bad. Maybe the manufacturer needs to re-think the material used...the high-contrast black motif just doesn't hold up with this material.

Gorgeous, last about 2 full seasons (fades from sun) but to be expected. Love it....it's my third and I don't ever plan to change

Rated 2 out of 5 by rocsgirl Disappointed
I have owned this mat for 6 months now and use it on a covered front porch. Although initially very pleased, I've experienced excessive shedding and color fading. I purchased the black mat. Too bad as I really liked the look at the front door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Francy Perfect Sophisticated Mat at a great price
I needed several different sizes of doormats that were sophisticated, fun and french. The Harlequin diamonds suited my needs and I was pleased to find that although the price is reasonable, the quality is fine. The toughest decision is what color to buy!

Ordered 2 of the same in different sizes. The photo makes the coir look whiter than it actually is but they look fanastic on my porch and really help with muddy feet and paws!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Newhometx Green color is not as pictured
This rug is good quality. However, I ordered the green and the color is not as pictured. The large diamonds are actually a dark, dark hunter green. And the small diamonds are a deep purple (they look tan in the photos). Unfortunately, I have to return them since they don't match the outdoor decor I bought them for. The products did arrive quickly - in 4 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AntiqueGirl2 Classic style, great quality.
The French Court Coir Mat was part of my first order with Ballard, and I was impressed with the quality of everything I received. The mat is thick and well-made, and the classic design looks even better than in the catalog photo. It's nice enough to use both outside or inside of your front door, but may be a bit thick for the door to swing across inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JudithNY Very pretty, hope it lasts
It is very nice, and a great improvement over the cheap, green, plastic mats I had before. They are slightly covered by the house's eaves which is recommended, but I noticed a little shedding. But they are very thick so I'm hoping that they won't wear away too much. They are quite handsome.

This mat looks great! Not only does is add class to your doorstep but it is durable due to the strong bristles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CltTarHeel Good looking mat
I am happy with the quality; this is a good looking doormat. Sheds some but not excessively in the first month of use. A good product for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CottageCutie Cute but not perfect
I like the style of this mat very much, it really adds flair to my entrance. I got size Medium. Love the width (48"). But it would be better if it the front to back was deeper, as 16" is just enough to fit feet onto with it up against the threshold. Especially since the mat is tall it makes it tough for older people like my parents, who kind of tripped over it. Also, the color is rubbing off a little faster than I'd hoped. I've only had for about a month and already see some wear.

Colors deep and the depth of the mat most inviting. I love it. This is an item I would get again and again. It's at once classic and fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ornaments44 Court Coir Mat
The Court Coir Mat is much better quality then I thought it would be. It has seen rain, mud and water over the last three weeks of heavy use at my front door. It rinses off easily and the color is just as bright as the day it arrived. I am very HAPPY with this mat. Thank You Ballard for another fine product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sambuka1 The best found anywhere!
We needed a new mat for our front door. We looked everywhere locally and could not find what we were looking for...the products were too small, too thin, poor designs, just too cheap looking. Then we received our Ballard catalogue in the mail...and, there it was...the perfect design, the perfect size, and VERY reasonably priced. The best part was when we received our door mat...we could not believe how thick it was! Would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a new door mat. And, rest assured, from now on, we will look first at our Ballard catalogue for anything we might need for our home!

Rated 1 out of 5 by koblee the black faded off of the mat in a couple of days.
I haven't even had the product for a month and the color has faded, it now looks old. The quality of the mat seems fine, but the color is now ugly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fairfield Very attractive product.
The overall look of the French Coir Mat is quite
attractive. I actually was not aware from the
online photo that there are three colors on the
mat - so, it looks even better in person than in

Rated 4 out of 5 by aMATterOfFact Looks just like the catalog photo
The rug is thick and the pattern really makes a nice statement at our front door. We've only had it for a month but it seems to hold up well and the color is not fading in the sunlight. I wish is were a few inches wider to be a little more proportional to our space (I bought the long one), but it's fine. I would rate this "very good," but the only choices were "good" or "excellent."

Rated 3 out of 5 by susquajo beautiful, but not tough enough
This mat is beautiful and looks great on my doorstep.
I've had it out for 3 weeks and am disappointed to find that the coir has loosened a lot already - making it look like it has taken a beating. I tried vacuuming it, and that does not help.
It's lovely, but should be sturdier, especially considering the price.

I love the French Court Coir Mat. The design is exactly what I was looking for & the quality is the best I've found anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liryan The french court coir mat matched the vivid colors of the one in the catalog, and the quality is much better than what I expected:thick and plush
We are very happy with our coir mat; aside from being festive, it is standing up to the holiday traffic very well! We have 4 large dogs and lots of children and visitors tracking through to see our Christmas decorations display, and the coir mat remains as good as new.
