Rated 4 out of 5 by dukejojo Great outdoor rug for the price
I have bad marks and cracks on my front porch entryway. Instead of having to correct the bad entrance with concrete, etc., I bought this large rug. So, for about $100, I got a nice looking large outdoor rug for my entry. It was the prettiest rug I could find and was the best price! The color is silver, but it has tones of beige and is not shiny. I love the pattern, too.
I agree with the reviewers about the creases that won't come out. They must be a result of the packaging? It doesn't matter outside, and the creases have lessened because of rain and snow. I would not want this rug inside. It doesn't move outside and needs no pad. I had thought it would come with a pad, but it didn't.
I'd say it is terrific for outdoors an no pad is needed, but I wouldn't recommend it for indoor use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by APNH Silver Color is not at all as pictured
The rug itself is nice, however I ordered the silver going off the photos of the different colored rugs stacked on top of eachother, and the picture of the silver rug in a room where it is a silver gray with a charcoal pattern. The actual rug instead looks like the swatch photo (which I hadn't noticed when ordering, it is actually brown with a tan pattern on it, not at all like the silver rug pictured in the photos and not nearly as nice looking). The color description should be changed to brown, disappointing and not looking forward to the hassle of trying to return a rug this size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cior Color as expected, very soft under foot!!!
Great quality rug! Rolled out straight and smooth within a day or two as opposed to another indoor/outdoor rug I have (purchased elsewhere). The color is a nice neutral taupe-grey so it does not clash with any of the colors I already have in the room. It goes with warm or cool tones. Another nice feature, I have kids and pets and it doesn't show dirt!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4msinriver Like the pattern, color is completely different then described.
I ordered the silver/grey rug with black print and recived a taupe/black background with tan print. Too much hassle to roll back up ,ship, and return so we 'll roll with it. However I'll think twice about ordering. The colors don't match any of the selections pictured!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jannygirl This is a great rug for the price.
I love this rug and it looks great in my dining area. I ordered the Aqua. I also ordered the runner for my kitchen. The color was a little more green than what I expected. I've had them for about 6 months and they are wearing great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by designdrama Fabulous, durable rug
I bought this to put over my hardwood floor in my family room in front of the door that leads out to the garage. This area takes alot of abuse every day with wet shoes and even a little snow and ice. The rug looks great, is easy to clean and can stand up to all the abuse. This is the 4th indoor/outdoor rug I've bought from Ballards. One is in my front foyer, one in my laundry room, one on the back patio and now this one. They have all been beautiful and wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newhomeowner17 Beautiful color and fabric
I ordered the gray color for my entranceway. The color is accurate and beautiful. The rug is very, very thin - so you definitely need a rub pad underneath to keep it from slipping. Having some trouble with one corner that refuses to lay flat, but otherwise perfect!

This is great for the price. Its very nice and soft on your feet for an outdoor rug. I love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by missbee a decent door mat
very difficult to get wrinkles out of it...thin, light weight and the silver is more of a taupe color...but it should be easy to hose down.

All of the prior reviews were correct on color, but I like it anyway, leans toward a cool khaki, but rich. Only issue I have is one corner is still curling up. Perfect for my breakfast room!!! Very stylish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lucia Looks good in office
I bought this in the grey and looks good in my husbands office. He didn't want a rug that would be difficult to roll his chair on and this was a decorative solution to save the wood floor from being ruined by his office chair. It is thin being an outdoor rug. And it doesn't have the rich look of a thicker wool rug, but still looks good in his office with the grey walls and white woodwork adds a designer touch with its pattern. Should use a thin rug pad though as it tends to move a bit.

This is a great quality rug. Perfect for a house with pets and kids. HOWEVER, I ordered silver and the picture shows dark gray scroll work, mine has cream colored scroll work. I still love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ballard99fan Color not as shown
The Geneve rug is more a sisal color with dark brown lines.
NOT cream colored with lighter brown lines as shown in catalog and on website. Still a nice rug but a more casual feel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Squeeze Geneve Outdoor/Indoor Rug
Up until today, I have been very pleased with everything I've ordered from Ballard. But this rug breaks my luck. This rug is AWFUL. It's thin, flimsy, slips around on the floor when walked on - there is no "grab" on the bottom. (Was sent to me in a cylindrical plastic bag, which curled it up grossly...)
Sorry Ballard, but this is going back. I hate the quality and I'm disappointed in you.

I have ordered before from Ballard and had come to expect quality products. I am very disappointed in this rug.
It has two large creases from the way it was packaged and will not lay flat. It just feels and looks cheap!

I bought this carpet for my pool house. It is of appropriate quality for an indoor outdoor carpet. It unrolled easily and it didn't take long to lie flat.

It's a great rug. The color (ivory/brown) was exactly what I hoped it would be.

I purchased the silver rug for the mudroom entry way from the garage to our laundry room. I thought it would be a good quick clean and low maintenance rug for that high traffic area. I have only had it a month but I really love it. I have not washed it, just vacuuming and shaking but I think it will wear well. I am even considering getting one for under the kitchen table.
My only concern is that the silver is not silver at all but a brown/tan which I knew from reading prior reviews. I have also had a little difficulty keeping the edges from rolling up. After a few weeks with the edges taped down, it seems to be laying better. It does feel like an outdoor rug, not soft. Works well for what I needed it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by justloveballard Would definately purchase again.
Plain and simple....I love this rug. Originally I bought two for the kitchen and returned to purchase three more for other rooms. They are super easy to clean (since they are indoor/outdoor), they hose off easily.
I read other reviews, and have to agree that the woven edge natural fibers do seem to 'fray' with normal wear/tear , however, I feel that they are no different than rugs that I have purchased in the past and the price just can't be beat.
Since they come tightly bound, I do recommend hosing them down and letting them dry which will help relax the rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RBRB Good rug for the price
I got the 'grey' color rug- and as another review stated- it looks much more like the 'natural' color. It's a great quality for an indoor/outdoor rug. I put it under my kitchen table and no problem with chairs sliding in and out. It did take a few weeks to get the 'kinks' out of the rug from where it was rolled up, and the middle part is still a little 'rippley'. Over all very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgiaCat Great product
I am very pleased with this purchase. I was looking for a large rug to go in my eat-in kitchen that would be easy to clean and look nice. This rug is just what I was looking for. From reviews the only thing I was worried about was curling at the edges, but this hasn't been a problem. I highly recommend this product.

This indoor/outdoor rug is perfect for our pool house. It is easy on your feet, but holds up well. I'm sure lots of little wet feet will be tromping all over it this summer and for many summers to come! Thank you!

although the measurements are obviously given, I thought it would be the same as a previous indoor/outdoor runner I had purchased...this one is cut narrower, though the length is the same. seems cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Curpo Even nicer in person
I am using this as an indoor rug. I have dogs and find myself constantly replacing or cleaning my rugs. But this one I can take outside and hose down, let it dry, and bring it right back in. I did that when I first received it so I could get it to flatten and it worked great. Very happy with the color. Doesn't look like an outdoor rug at all!
