Rated 4 out of 5 by ChiMomto3 Love the color choices; doesn't clean up well
I was very excited to find a light-colored sisal that came with many color choices for the trim. The gray was perfect underneath the smaller lavender and gray wool rug in our daughter's room and made for a nice layered look with the wood floors. Unfortunately, our three year old vomited on this rug, and there's nothing we can do to save it. Considering it was less than a year old, it's a shame, but part of the peril of natural grass materials apparently. Will wait for a sale to order a replacement.

I like this rug a lot. It is pretty light and fairly yellowish. We have gray walls, and we feel like it is ok, though. The blue border is a really good blue color. There were some gray marks on the rug, but they aren't a big deal. Finally, it isn't soft, but isn't horrible either. I don't know that I would want to sit on the floor with bare legs, though. I am including a picture. It is blurry, but gives you an idea of the color of the rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by REjuvenate Love the lighter sisal!
This rug IS beautiful. The lighter sisal is refreshing especially with the spa twill border. The contrast works well in my dining room.The knots are tighter creating a more elegant look for a natural fiber rug. One downfall - the cotton twill corners could have been more elegantly folded and stitched. Arrived on time and in great condition. Will not be purchasing anymore rugs though, the cost to ship is simply outrageous!

Pleased with this : Not as comfy underfoot as a fluffy rug, but hardwearing

Rated 5 out of 5 by RamblinGal It looks great and has great texture!
I bought this rug as a runner for a hall from my garage. It looks great, has nice clean lines and I love the texture. It has brightened the area and it cleans easily using the floor brush attachment of my vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chartruese It's a great rug for our front porch, perfect size and it goes well with the color of our house and the black rod iron furniture.
Great service also. I look forward to your catalogs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Myra463 Not like other sisals
I purchased this rug because the bleached tone blends perfectly with our white slipcovered furniture and pale yellow armchairs. I chose the Spa border because it matches the cushions in our living room. The mitered corners give it a crisp look under our coffee table. The size was also perfect for the space.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Movingfurnitureagain Maybe, maybe not?
Not sure about a few brown/black streaks running randomly through the rug. I understand that it's a natural product, so some variation might occur, but the contrast is so dramatic and the rug looks like it's soiled. As I mentioned to the Ballard's customer service rep, I'm toying with returning it because of that. But I probably won't since it'd be a real hassle. It was a good price for a 10 x 14, especially with the sale. It is somewhat yellow in color, so be aware of that as well. Wish I could be more positive!

This rug is YELLOW. It is not the 'light' sisal color pictured. I am so disappointed. I really expected an off-white or ecru color. DO NOT PURCHASE unless you want a yellow rug.
In addition, the binding on my rug (red) is really a faded maroon color. All in all, make another choice!

We love our light sisal rugs. I had some concern about the rugs smoothing out after unpacking them but they look wonderful. The quality is great. No stains yet so I can't comment on cleaning results. Another happy Ballard purchase!

I find the typical sisal rug too gold or brown. Usually just too dark in color for my needs.
This is my second light sisal rug. I liked it so much I .bought another for my bedroom

Rated 4 out of 5 by Moondancer Good Looking Rug
I looked several places for a large, light sisal area rug and was happy to find it at Ballard Designs. Luckily, I got it 15% off, which helped with the hefty 50 dollar shipping fee. I layered a houndstooth diagonally over it and together they have a dramatic impact in my great room. There are a few dark brown fibers that run through it- almost making it look like someone marked it with a thin pen. This happens on the entire surface of the rug, but is only noticeable when you are looking closely. Decorator I am working with says this is a characteristic of a sisal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pickyme A bit of dark fibers mixed in
If I was not in a hurry would have sent it back as I was disappointed in the quality compared to ones I have bought in the past. Love the light color but not the dark fibers mixed in. Better ones out there but back ordered and slightly more expensive
I am using it just the same. Need better quality control. It is just OK!

Bought two of these rugs with the khaki/tan border because of the light sisal color and I am pleased. The lighter, sort of straw color of this rug is just what I needed to help relate a golden granite counter to a noche travertine floor. No complaints about the quality.

I am very pleased with the Sisal Rug I ordered. The color was exactly as it appeared in the catalog. The delivery was very fast, within 2 days after placing the order.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rugforrollers This rug texture works under office chair on rollers.
I looked locally at many rugs to find a nice looking, natural fiber for my office with hardwood floors. I tried this tighter-weave sisal and it is working just fine with the rollers of my desk chair. The dimensions are not ideal, however. I need another foot in width.

We love this rug! My cats tear it to pieces and it never shows it. It lightens our entire living room and brings an airy sophisticated feel to it. The only thing I'll say about it is that in certain light, it has a yellowish tint. Besides that, it's gorgeous!
