Rated 4 out of 5 by LucyVP Attractive choice for my 3 season porch
My only concern is that I am having some difficulty getting the edges that were on the inside of the cardboard shipping tube to lie flat, which I expect will happen with more time.

I bought these rugs for my son's new apartment. He put them in the entry way and hall and really likes the way they look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynzoid7 Exactly what I wanted :)
We were looking for a rug for our entryway and I saw this in the Ballard Designs catalog. It was a "Bring Home Ballard" item therefore priced pretty well. I read a few mixed reviews (most negative reviews noted that the rug was thin and not what they expected), but decided to give it a go. I am so glad I did! This is exactly what I was hoping for. Its thin enough that the front door will still open on top of it and the color (gray) is perfect for the entry. Some reviews noted that the color was not what they expected and I would agree that the color pictured is not exactly what we got, but its perfect. For those that complained about the thickness of the rug - its an indoor/outdoor rug - by nature they aren't thick. If you are looking for a rug for an entry way, mudroom, etc. this is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Curleytop Great quality, especially for the price.
Loved these rugs!! Color was exactly as presented and they felt much softer underfoot than I expected. They also look more expensive than the price indicated!! Taping the edges to the floor for a day or two really helped them to lay flat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BallardRocks5 beautiful rug
This rug is perfect for us. It's near the back door and the fact that its indoor outdoor is just what we need. It's very good quality and everyone has commented on how nice it is. We got the terra cotta color and were worried it would be too bright of an orange but its not. It's exactly a "terra cotta" clay color and the design helps break it up nicely. Love this rug! Will use Ballard again!

The rugs from Ballard are great for our house on the coast where we always have lots of fun and visitors. They keep their shape, color and always have that classic look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Decoratingnewhome2012 Stylish, casual, durable
The burlap look of this rug is perfect for a casual living room, and it stands up against our dog's black hair and dirt. The only downside is it took a couple weeks of heavy books and walks around to flatten it out. Otherwise, we love it!

by Dal126 Perfect for my laundry room
I needed a rug for my laundry room that was long enough to cover the area, thin enough to lay flat as 3 doors open/close over it, and sturdy enough to withstand traffic coming in from our garage. This rug is perfect for all of my criteria! I could not be more pleased! My husband drags his heavy laptop case over it each am & pm and this rug does not budge!! Great for protecting my white tile floor beneath, I did get a thin rug pad to go under it. Thank you Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrossCountry37 Gorgeous rug
This rug turned out to be fabulous! The natural color just makes our living room and lightens it up tremendously. I thought it was true to the photo color. It is also thick enough to use in our living room. I was totally thrilled when we got it down and it flattened out. Another attribute is that it does not show dirt or pet hair until you get around to vacuuming. This was a steal for the price!

I purchased the gray Geneve indoor/outdoor rug and I love it! it's the perfect gray color and goes perfectly in our den where our big Golden Retriever loves to chew his toys. Easy to clean too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gdkas Happy. Item as described
I bought this rug for my office and I was surprised that it isn't as hard/rough as I thought it would be for an indoor/outdoor rug. I wanted something smooth that my office chair could roll on, but that wouldn't hurt my baby's knees if he was crawling around in there. This is the perfect rug for what I wanted. I read reviews about the colors not matching the website so I went with the natural color and am happy with that. It has taken some time to flatten out, but I put some weights on it and hopefully it will be laying flat soon. Overall, great purchase, especially for the price.

This rug is great. Color is true to description, it flattened out in just a few days, and looks good. Perfect for our screened in porch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HillDecorator Wrong Color
Though we have ordered other Ballard rugs and been completely satisfied, this rug was all wrong for our home. The "natural" color was much more yellow than the stone color that it appeared in the catalog. It is too orange for the spa colored living room that we have. We are going to try it in other rooms before we send it back because it was such a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PracticalDesign Love this gorgeous rug!
I bought the Geneve rug in terra cotta and it looks great. The ripples mentioned by other reviewers were not a problem for me as the ripples worked themselves out quickly. I'm using it in a grown up space where it looks elegant and can withstand sloppy children and a slew of toys.

I love this rug for my dining room. It is just the right color. I recently inherited a gorgeous dining room set in black, and this color rug gives the dining room a light and sunny feel even with the dark furniture. I couldn't be happier!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Buy4me A little disappointing
I have purchased 6 outdoor rugs from Ballard designs of various sizes and patterns and have loved the construction quality of the rugs. I have cleaned them many times and have been very impressed with their durability. They have been great. The recently purchased Geneve rugs are not constructed as well. They are very light weight and do not lie flat for a long while and he weave doesn't seem to be as tight as the others. Overall they are just not the same quality.

We use this rug in our foyer due to its durability. It takes a while for it to lay flat, but long term we're very pleased with the rug.

I ordered two rugs in the color green. I was thrilled with the color and quality. We use them in a finished pool house. They were a great buy and look very tasteful and elegant in the space.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gaby4 looks more outdoor than indoor
I was not so happy with this rug for my home. It might have been perfect for outdoor but it was not the correct size for my porch. I bought it for inside but once I saw it in person, I knew it did not look like an inside rug but rather outdoors.
I would recommend it for that purpose but not indoor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissScarlett Good buy in Geneve rugs
I purchased two sizes of this Geneve rug in different colors. Both match the photo in coloring. I like that they are indoor/outdoor and can be easily wiped up if my cat has an accident, which he is prone to do on rugs.... The smallest size works well just inside my door and the next size up went under my office chair on the wood floor. It is the right size so I can roll around without going OFF the rug and catching the roller. The design is simple and not too fussy. Just what I was looking for in every way!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DecQueen Pretty But...
Order the rug (color: spa). Very thin but seems durable. It took several weeks before it finally flattened out. Color was darker than what I expected. For the cost, it was worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SimpleNElegant Rug for a value
If you're looking to cover a space for a value, this may be the right rug for you. It really is a great price for the size.
I purchased a 3x5 to use as a outdoor entry rug in a covered doorway; however, it's just not the quality of welcome that I had in mind. For the purchase price, it's just not worth my time to try and return. The natural color option is not natural looking. The thin-piled rug has a plastic sheen. I've used a cloth to try and iron the rug flat, which did help some. I hope it continues to flatten as the week progresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by swim Great replacement for an old sisal rug.
The item arrived in about a week and we love the subdued color of the terra cotta. It was rolled rather tightly and flattened out nicely in a few days. I like that it is not as thick as the sisal was. Cannot tell it is an outdoor rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by designerwannbe It looks nice on my patio
Well I ordered the grey version and this is what I received attached in the picture below. It appears to be the tan version and I did specifically request the grey version I remember asking the sales person if it was more greyish as someone else commented that the color is not exactly as shown. And because I'm in Canada its harder to return. It does look nice on our patio so I'm content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alwayslookingtoupdate Buy this rug!
I was a little apprehensive about an indoor/ outdoor rug for my family room, but after receiving this rug I loved it immediately. The design is perfect for an up to date look and it is very easy to keep clean. My husband was not thrilled with the 'feel' at first, but I added the recommended rug pad and it feels great under foot. Ballard designs delivers on their committments. My shipment was received in 2 days which was a nice surprise in addition to the purchase. Definetely recommend this rug!

Rated 4 out of 5 by roofdeckmom Nice looking rug, but not gray
I really like the look of this rug, with a few caveats:
1) it is not as thick as other outdoor rugs I have purchased from Ballard and
2) it is not gray....more of a taupe. it's a pretty color, but definitely not the gray we had in mind after seeing the color on the website.
All in all, nice rug at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chilipebs Other reviews right on -- good and bad
I'm very happy with this rug. I bought two in different sizes in the natural color. The color is a tad more yellow than what's shown in the picture, but still OK with me. It's also somewhat "plastic-y" but not near as what I thought it would be based on the other reviews. It's just enough of a coating #or whatever# to make it a perfect indoor/outdoor rug that you can hose off, which is perfect for my high-traffic kitchen with a dog door. I wouldn't put it under a desk in my home office as one photo showed, but the sheen and quality is ideal for nearby outdoor. I'm using weights to straighten out the edges -- again, something I figured would happen based on the reviews. I love the rug and design. I would recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovehomedecor1 great durable rug
I bought this rug to use at my front door. I had purchased several rugs and had to return all of them because they were too thick and I couldn't open my door. This rug worked out perfectly. This rug is thin but durable. The pattern is very nice and looks great in my entryway. I purchased the gray color and I would have to agree with other reviews that I read before I bought this that the gray color is not really gray at all, but rather more ofa brown color. Regardless, I still like it.
