Le Poeme Indoor/Outdoor Rug is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 113.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I purchased this rug for my dining room and let me tell you, it is absolutely fabulous. I am so happy with this decision, not only for looks, but for the quality of the rug. It has held up to the use and abuse of my children like a champ. Stains are no match for this rug. I had had no issues with wear and tear showing or any concerns when I vacuum (which I do ALOT). I highly recommend this rug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cute rugs! I am very happy with the rugs. I am following the directions given to use vacuum attachment so as not to snag rugs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LePoeme Rug I purchased several different sizes of the LePoeme rug and am pleased with them. They provide the look I was hhoping for. The only challenge in cleaning the rugs is getting the cat hair off of them without using the beater on the vaccum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but small size has a flaw. I purchased the 2x3 and it is quite nice, except for one flaw. The writing is so large, that it is impossible to read one entire word. Manufacturer should have based the size of the script on the size of the rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rug, doesn't look like much like the catalogue This rug is of great quality and really nice to walk on. I purchased the spa color and it really is a much more muted blue than the photo, which works okay in the room so I kept it. I also would note that the background is not solid - it's several colors of khaki. Overall, great rug, it just doesn't look exactly like I thought it wood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful The rug is suprisingly soft for an indoor/outdoor rug and the colors are really beautiful. As a previous reviewer said, the smaller sizes do cut off the words but it really doesn't take away from the effect of the rug. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entry Rug I purchased this rug to place inside my french doors in my kitchen since it is an indoor/outdoor rug. The rug is very soft and it doesn't feel like an outdoor rug. Only real complaint is that it does have loops that periodically stick up that need to be trimmed (the field of the rug is kind of like a berber weave). The rug says this is a result of it being handmade and gave instructions about clipping them, but I wasn't expecting quite this many and hope this pace doesn't keep up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what i was looking for I bought this rug to use in a study. After reading ALL the mixed reviews on the rug, I was worried it would not work. The rug works beautifullly in the room. I ordered the 8.6 x. 11.9". The quality of the rug is perfect for the use of the room, it's softer than it looks. I am waiting for the rug pad, but im not sure i need it now. I ordered the spa color, which really is what it sounds like-- somewhere between blue and green. Definitely a softer look than pictured on the website. It has a whimsical feel, and its a great start to updating my study. One side of the rug rolled up, but only for a few days. After less than a week, it lays flat. Delivery was expected in April, but I received it in less than a week. This is my first purchase from Ballard, but I am impressed so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and fun This rug is well made and adds a lot of charm to a room. The background turned out to be darker than it looks in the photos, but fortunately it still works where I have it. While I would prefer a slightly lighter background, I am glad I bought it. It's definitely warm and fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Le Poeme Rug This rug is beautiful, and I have bought two of them! The only problem with it is that it rides across my carpet ... and my niece's carpet (gift), so we constantly have to bend over and straighten it back to its original position. How can we remedy this???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These rugs look great in my master bath. I ordered these rugs for my bathroom since my new wallpaper has all words written on it pertaining to bathing and grooming. They look GREAT!The runner is used in front of the double sinks and fits perfectly, and the smallest one, in front of the tub.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Shabby Chic I love this rug. It looks and feels very "shabby chic". Everyone always asks me what it says and I tell them its a french fable. So far no spills, so I really can't describe how durable it is but I anticipate I should have no trouble picking up or wiping up spills. It is quite expensive though! I will be buying from Ballards again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice rug It isn't what I'd call plush....more of an indoor/outdoor carpet feel...yet thicker than some indoor/outdoor ones I've bought. I got sage lettering....very subtle and didn't compete with my zebra chair and ottoman. Very versatile an easy to clean with Folex spray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rug I got the aqua rug to put in my master bathroom and it is perfect. The aqua is not too bright, very subtle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love my rugs. These are such beautiful rugs. I have them in my kitchen and it really gives it the perfect look of a European kitchen....I love them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value; excellent design excellent customer service - delivery was so fast! for an indoor/outdoor carpet, the design is outstanding - i like the high/low loop effect. i'm using it under my dining room table. because of the continuous loop construction the rug cannot be vacuumed with a beater bar. overall, a good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and soft underfoot. Purchased for a landing that receives a lot of traffic, including pets. Has the personality in design that we wanted, the durability needed, the softness of an interior rug, and an excellent price. Who could ask for more? We're very pleased.
Date published: 2011-03-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from very unique I really like this rug. It's very different from any other rug I've seen and adds a lot of personality to a room. The only thing I didn't like was you may have a problem if you have a dog. The pads on the bottom of my dogs paws have rough skin and it pulls up the fiber in the yarn of the rug. It almost looks like there is dog hair that lays over the black writting but it's not- it the fiber of the yarn. Other than that I love the rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun I have the rug on my screened-in porch. OK, it's just a door mat, but it's interesting and fun to look at. I like my function to have beautiful form.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poetry at my feet While the background color of the rug doesn't look like the picture (it's more multicolored than a uniform beige), the rug is the perfect size in front of my kitchen sink and the aqua writing I chose matches my walls perfectly. Unfortunately, it barely comes across as writing thus the design in such a small size is very subtle. Still, as a writer I love the concept, the quality is excellent, and it's more unique than most scatter rugs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made Does not look like an outdoor rug to me. Have it in a breakfast nook - looks awesome, lots of compliments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smelly but pretty cool Rug smelled awful when it arrived & was dirty underneath; I wondered if it had been used and returned, but the smell faded and you don't see the underside when it's on the floor... Design wise, make sure you have a particular direction for entering a room because the text reads like a page and it feels odd approaching it backwards or sidewise. Otherwise it's definitely a conversation piece! Everyone wants to know what it says! (beats me)
Date published: 2011-09-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not exactly what I thought it would be. The background is nothing like the one shown online or in the catalog. It's pretty dark, almost greenish. I like the rug but would have prefered a lighter background. Also it says not to use the beater bar of the vacuum cleaner on it. I thought it would be more sturdy than that. I have it under a glass top coffee table and it looks nice, just not WOW , which I was going for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks really cool Definetely a conversation piece. On a 'minus' side can be a bit slippery when walking on in shoes or slippers. Also, it takes a really long time - unusually long - for the 'new product' odor to go away. Will give it an additional week - if it still smells that bad, will have to talk to Customer Service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun! I thought the background was a solid beige, But it has beige and darker beige. But it's a fun rug, the color spa works beautifully in the living room, and feels good under foot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from the design is great for my space and colors are very good as well as the softness under foot. I was excited to get this rug for my bathroom...wanted an indoor/outdoor rug and and very pleased with the softness, however I do not like all the "pilliing" and the edges unravel. I've had this rug just over three months, and I'll have to see if the pilling stops at some not unlike other rugs before I would recommend it to others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rug is not what it's cut out to be... First off, let me just say that I coveted this rug for almost a year before I broke down and bought it. I was buying a new house and I just had to have it in my living room. I was so excited to get this rug that I ordered it well in advance before the closing of my house and it rested rolled up in my garage for 6 weeks. Now, comes the tough part, I can only give it three stars because I still adore the design and look of the rug. But, in every other aspect it has failed. I purchased one with green script in the large square shape and so loved the look of it when I rolled it out onto my new hickory floors that I actually did a little jig of delight. Within a week I started noticing little snags all over it from my two little dogs. Easy to take care of by getting down and snipping them off, but soon I noticed I couldn't keep up with them. Then I started noticing the main body of the rug, not the script part, was starting to have fine wispy threads lifting like film over it. Kind of like a old sweater. As a matter of fact, I have been looking for one of those old sweater shavers to attempt to get rid of it. Let's just say, taking the time to get on my hands and knees every weekend snipping snags and shaving fine threads was not what I anticipated with this rug. That being said, I feel the quality of this rug falls far short of the price. I have never written a review before, but after a frustrating morning of upkeeping this rug I pulled out my laptop to do so. I am a single woman with a couple small dogs and no heavy traffic in my home. I have only had it for a little over a year, so there really is no excuse for the quick degradation of my rug. I definitely would not recommend it for outdoor use. It's only saving grace right now is that I still love the look of it, but all in all, I have to say I am very disappointed...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality i have only had this rug for a couple of months now and it has snag marks all over makes it looked pilled. for the price and that it's an indoor/outdoor rug i would expect it to hold up longer. i feel like i have wasted my money and wont buy another rug from Ballard again.
