Rated 5 out of 5 by ramatherly Great construction. Sturdy. Beautiful
This rug arrived exactly as pictured. It looks great and I feel it will last for a long time. I love everything I get from Ballards and recommend it to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LuckyP Geneve rugs in Spa
I hate leaving a bad review, but I got three of these and since each has done the same thing, I would recommend anyone think twice before purchasing. On each one the binding raveled. And that was with minimal wear. The spa color is very green and does not work for the area I wanted them for. I use the large one in my laundry room and the others in front of doors that are hardly used. Each one has raveled. Not good.
As far as the rug itself, other than color and quality, it is gorgeous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by snapshots Natural is beautiful but gray is Very different
I ordered two different colors & sizes of this rug. The Natural color is beautiful and works perfectly in our dining room. The product photo is very accurate for the natural, five stars for this one.
HOWEVER..... I liked the pattern so much I thought I would try it in the gray color for our tv room. The product photo and the actual color of the rug in person are very different. The rug looks brown and there is not much contrast of the pattern, it doesn't pop, muddy looking. Also, the texture is more stiff, rough on the feet and plasticy than the same rug in the natural color. Weird. Stick to the natural and you'll be pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNMom Great rug
I purchased the doormat sized rug, which I placed inside the house in front of the door that leads to the deck. It flattened out right away. I put a rug pad underneath it to keep it from sliding. It is thin, which I needed so the door would clear it. It is perfect for what I needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MRSmth1 Disappointing...
I ordered this rug in a very small 2x3 size before committing to a room size b/c I have had some past issues with Ballards quality. I would have sent this rug packing but the return shipping was not worth bothering. The rug is very plastic feeling and in the 2 months of use on our enclosed porch as a door mat, the binding has come loose and I will need to repair it. Really disappointed but SO glad I did not go with the room size and hope for good quality. I got gray and it is black and tan not gray at all sadly.

by CasaBodega The Rug looks amazing
Besides looking wonderful in my patio next to the pool, it is well made and holds up well. It has not shown wear, has tight stitching and is easy to clean. The pattern is sublte and modern. It is one of the best purchases I have made in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cincymeme nice looking
I am using this indoor/outdoor carpet in my kitchen--it looks very nice and cleans easily with a sweeper and a wet sponge for spills. I definitely feel it is worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by suziq10923 love the pattern, not the quakity.
the pattern is great, however I was disappointed in the quality. I have bought other outdoor rugs from Ballard to use indoors and they don't look like "outdoor rugs". However this one looks cheaper, thinner weave, with the backing showing through....definitely has outdoor rug look, though I bought it for my study/office.
would only recommend for porch or outdoor.

I love this rug. We have it in our entryway and it's both sylish enough to have inside, and durable enough to handle the traffic that comes in and out of our house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kacey This is a beautiful rug!
I love the design and color of this rug! Having two kids, we needed a rug that would be easy to clean. The indoor/outdoor rug is a good choice for easy clean-up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SeeJennaShop Pretty pattern, terrible quality
I purchased this rug in the "spa" color about 4 months ago. The pattern is beautiful and the color is a nice blue/green, exactly what I wanted. Sadly, this is where the positives end. After a few months of light indoor use the rug is falling apart, the edges are fuzzy and one corner has completely come unstitched, there are several "pulls" in the material. Also, for the life of me I can't get the rug to lay flat. I am very disapointed with this rug, what a waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jabo22 Beautiful design and great quality!
Love the rug - I would just like to mention that the spa color is actually a little more greenish than bluish. Just a point to those who were going for a match in a room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FromMD What a beautiful pattern
I absolutely LOVE this rug. It is such a beautiful pattern and the color that I chose (green) goes well in my entrance. It arrived rolled up and it did not take long to get it straightened. I would like to buy another larger for my deck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shopgirl37 good product poor color
Love the rug, but I was expecting it to be the color it was described as and not what arrived. the color is NOT gray, it is brown:( I kept the rug because it still went with my kitchen, but I was hoping it was gray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cvalvt Very attractive rug and for a great price!
We love this rug. It looks perfect under our dining room table and we don't have to worry about staining. Despite the fact that it is an indoor/outdoor rug, it is surprisingly soft (albeit not as soft as wool or cotton). For the price, this is an exceptional rug and very nice looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kclove2decorate Pattern/Color Are Great!
I purchased the Geneve rug for the entry way to my home. It will be used indoors. I was very cautious and somewhat reluctant to order it because of some of the reviews, however, I found the pattern and color (Spa) to be just as I'd hoped and the size was perfect. I'm still working on getting the rug to lay flat. I did not find it shiny and I do think the casual look is great next to a formal living room and study.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oklegalasst Nice rug
I purchased this for an indoor rug in the blue color. I am happy with the way it looks and is easy to clean with the sweeper. Haven't washed it yet but I don't anticipate any problems. Rug is nicely made and lays well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CMOM Good quality
I like the quality and size of the rug, but the color did not come in as expected. I ordered the rug in grey, and it is really more of a tan. It looks nothing like the grey in the picture. If you are looking for a dark mix of tans, then then I would choose the grey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ballardhappy Excellent Value
We love this rug. it looks great and is comfortable to walk on. It's good quality and I love how the pattern adds interest without being too loud. We love using these types of indoor/outdoor rugs in the house since we have small children and they are easy to clean. They are also a great value and I am so pleased with the quality and size of this rug, especially for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Impulsive1 Good rug, but color (spa) not what I expected
I ordered this rug in spa and was surprised when I unrolled it -- I thought initially Ballard had shipped the green one instead of 'spa'. The color is definitely more green than blue (the back of the rug calls it 'aqua'). My color scheme was very neutral so I kept the rug rather than go through the hassle of returning it, but I really would have prefered spa blue...

Rated 4 out of 5 by MLovesit Color not true to online color
My husband and I just redid the floors in our kitchen, and I ordered this rug in the natural color for near the sink. The color online is much darker than in person, and it doesn't match the way I wanted it to, but other than that it is a perfect size and I love the design. I've purchased Ballard indoor/outdoor rugs before and they're great because they're durable and easy to clean, especially in high traffic areas like our dining room and kitchen.
I just wish the color was more like the picture! The picture is darker, and our rug is much lighter than what I thought I would get. :/

I ordered this rug in the grey color for my entryway. The texture is different than i was expecting, but I love it! It is perfect for a high traffic area but also looks elegant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by easycomfortdesign this is very true to description
It took a while for me to receive the rug, but when I did it worked perfectly. The colors are great and it worked well with my blue slate floor. I would recommend this to people who have dogs as it has been very durable and easy to clean with a vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nance01 You wouldn't think this is an outdoor rug.
I love everything about this rug. The pattern, the texture. It looks great in my living room! The color is the only thing I was unsure of when it first arrived. It is more tan and black rather than grey. It looks sophisticated and trendy at the same time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DorisP The color was not what I expected.
The design and construction are very good. The only disappointment is the color. I had expected "cream" instead of "medium taffy". The first Ballard rug we ordered had a "natural" border print. I expected the new rugs to be the same "natural" color. We will keep the new rugs, but the color is not what I expected.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JessicaW Love the design but not the color
I love the design of the rug, and quality wise it seems to be fine, but the grey looks much more brown than the picture in the catalog or on-line. I am a little disappointed. I would recommend this as long as you aren't looking for the grey rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MandyP Fabulous Rug!
This is the second Geneve that I have purchased. I have had the blue for 2-3 years & it still looks brand new. It took about a week for it to lay flat from being unrolled in delivery. Very good quality rug, it's thin & just perfect for our house full of kids & animals. Very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SimplifyYourSpace Beautiful Runner for Kitchen
We purchased this in the runner length in the grey color to lay in front of our kitchen sink. It's beautiful. Because it's made of material for indoor or outdoor use, it's perfect in the kitchen where it might get wet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bohochic Generally a good rug
I bought this rug for under my kitchen table and so far I'm happy with the clean-ability but the edges look "fuzzy" from the nylon threads fraying a bit, just from a couple of weeks of regular foot traffic. It's more green than I expected but the color is nice and I get a lot of compliments on it.
