Great neutral rugs for the interior and exterior entrances into the house. Love the color and pattern and they blend very well with the concrete patio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VegasBuyer Beautiful. Love it.
I'm not easily pleased, and Ballard's has not disappointed me. This rug was no exception. I ordered the 8 x 10 in Mineral, and couldn't be more pleased. The photos online don't do it justice. All my guests have commented on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyMary SO Much Better Looking Than The Online Picture !
The dots on the black version are more a light cream than white, which gives the rug more depth than pictured. I have this over tile in my front entry. The sight line includes this design, a DR black background 70's period mod wool area carpet, and a LR black background traditonal floral bordered wool area carpet. Remarkably this Marina rug works, makes a statement but doesn't compete with the other area carpets. First I purchased the Biscayne which, though handsome, clashed with the other two area carpets. The Biscayne now dresses up my Pullman kitchen! Both pack a visual punch but the quality and foot feel of the Marina gets my top vote. And do spend for the indoor outdoor rug pad for foot feel and to keep the Marina from shifting; also a safety factor, as you can slip and fall if the rug is not anchored. Both rug and pad are well worth every penny.

Love the length and color/pattern of this rug but for the life of me I cannot get it to lie flat and everyone is tripping over where it ripples in several places. Very disappointed.

by LovesRugs2 rug still has folds
This carpet looks like it did in the catalog, except for the coloring. I thought it would be a lite shade of teal. Instead it is much more grey. But the big problem is that it still does not lay flat, after being on my floor over a month. When it arrived, it was heavily taped in the middle with clear tape. That part is fine. But on either side, you can still see gentle "waves" that have not yet flattened out. I thought by now it would have. Had it been taped on both sides as well, this might not have happened. At this point, I am waiting and hoping it will flatten out. Otherwise, I may have to return it

I waited for a long time to purchase this rug. So glad I finally have it home. It's perfect for my laundry room. This room is next to my kitchen and it has our pantry so it has high traffic (3 kids and a doggy). It's been down for over a month and has zero stains! All you need to clean spills is a wet rag! I didn't even have to purchase a rug pad (I have tile) since it pretty much stays in place. It is the perfect dose of happy!

The Marina indoor/outdoor rug arrived in beautiful shape. It laid flat within a day. It goes with my living room beautifully and I love the rug on our carpet. It looks fresh, stylish and ties all the chairs in the arrangement together. We are very happy with the product and the overall experience with Ballard Design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kwes This Rug Fades
I loved this rug when we purchased it last summer (2014). But we are only halfway through this summer (2015) and it has faded terribly. We have had a very wet late spring and early summer, and on nice days, we have an awning that covers 90% of this rug, so I just don't understand why it faded so quickly. We also recently purchased the smaller matching rug to put by the back door. The difference in color is striking, and shows just how much the larger rug has faded this year. Very disappointed.

Needed a small rug to go beneath my desk chair. This works perfectly. The spa color I selected was true to the photographs. The rug is sturdy and great value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gussie Very nice rug
I bought this rug for my mud/laundry room & it is great. The color brightens up the room & feels great on barefeet. With an 80lb. Lab coming in & out no snags. It vacuums up well & you can just hose it off outside if it gets really dirty. Very good value for the price. I did buy a rug pad to go under it so it wouldn't slide when Abby the labby comes bounding in.

I bought this rug to go in front of sliding doors to the backyard - loved it so much I bought another one for my front entry! It is a very sharp looking rug. I feel like I got a lot of bang for my buck!

This rug has good looks and is a great fabric for a high traffic area. It is easy to clean, but the sisal weave is not as soft as it could be.

by LuckyL Great indoor/outdoor rug
I bought one of your rugs several years ago - still have it and use it on my front walkway. I bought another, the Marina, for my kitchen - - so many compliments! And I liked it so much, I bought the same one for my back hall area by my garage - -makes that spot so much prettier. And then ANOTHER, in a different color, for my back patio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trixieg Perfect for my basement
We just redid our basement and I wanted some rugs that could take abuse and still look good. I got one for the laundry room, the activity area and our mini kitchen. The fact that they were indoor/outdoor really appealed since we just recovered from a basement flooding--hence the redo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katep The rugs are perfect!
The colors are exactly as seen in the catalog, the weight is perfect, they are a nice weight so they lay flat and thin but are also very durable, they clean up easily and still look brand new. I have purchased them in numerous colors.

by Highrider Best purchase ever!
This rug is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I bought the rust version for a mid-toned wood laminate floor in a warm-themed bedroom. It lends an elegant, gracious look to the room, both soothing and energizing at the same time. (!!) The weave has a slight “waffle” texture which is not objectionable for the price. The thread has a tweedy, irregular dye to it, so it looks more natural, not synthetic. The texture is comfortable for bare feet. There was a barely perceptible area where the dots did not blend smoothly, as if the computer design involved a cut-paste and left a thin dividing line of negative space. But after placing that end away from the entrance and adding furniture, you could not tell. Smell was minimal (I tend to be very sensitive to off-gassing), and was gone within 48-72 hours.
It was stiffly curled, so I steam-ironed it first. Laid it out flat, cut the heavy plastic ship-wrapping into two large pieces, inserted/overlapped the pieces under each section to be ironed to protect the floor. Placed a THICK cotton bath towel between the plastic and rug, and another THICK bath towel on top. (Mine was 8x11, so I worked in sections approx. 30”x50”). Used no more than wool heat and lots of steam-button. You could see flattening quickly. Took almost 2 hrs but was so worth it. The result is amazing, amazing, amazing. Rarely do I marvel about a purchase months later, but I still do. Would give this 8 stars if I could, for the phenomenal design bang for your buck and washability to boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ModernLiving Excellent value & quality!
It may be an indoor/outoor rug, but we're using them in our modern decor master bedroom and they look terrific! You'll want to purchase rug pads if you have hardwood floors like we do. We have pets and love the ease of care and cleanup for these rugs and are considering purchasing additional rugs for our master bath and our kitchen as well. We got the rust color and it is beautiful. I was concerned I wouldn't like the way it feels on bare feet, but it's no problem. The price can't be beat either -- just great all-around.

This rug is very good looking and well made, with nicely finished edges. I was concerned about buying a black rug for outdoors (we live on a golf course) but it is not really a deep black so dirt does not show. The finishing touch for our outdoor patio!

This is the second rug I've bought from you and I am very satisfied. Prompt delivery, looks just like the photo in the catalog. Love the fact I can clean it myself and lay out in the sun to dry. Will use it interchangeably with your grey/sand chevron rug of same size. Appreciate the sale price, too.
