I ordered a rug swatch for the Satari Rug Cocoa.... the colors were nothing like they appeared to be online. If you plan on ordering this rug, I would highly recommend ordering a swatch first! Ballard really needs to improve the color accuracy of this particular rug.

This rug has beautiful colors and blends in well with different decor. I have it in the foyer between two rooms and it is perfect. I am also a wool rug snob, and it is a good thickness. LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongTimeComing This rug is absolutely beautiful
I ordered the Satari rugs--two 8x10s and one 5x8. Plush and very rich looking. Colors are soft and muted and can appear very creamy or somewhat darker, depending on the light falling on them. A lot of gold tones. The touch of rusty red--perfect. Because the 5x8's pattern is a bit smaller, it's more defined and appears a bit darker. The 8x10's background is a little mottled, but it gives a vintage/antique look. Even though the pattern is very busy, their lightness plays it down. They really expand the space in my long, narrow room. I have honey-colored oak floors and both oak and darker wood furniture. The rugs tie the various pieces together and make everything harmonize. Customer service and delivery was excellent. Cannot recommend this rug enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amy10s Color definitely more like the second photos
as others have reviewed. I got the Cocoa rug and it is much more muted than the single photos, but I expected that after reading what others had posted. I'm seeing quite a bit of shedding still, three weeks later, and need to vacuum 3x a week to stay on top of it. There are also fibers that are "pulling" up and popping out of the rug--I am hoping this is just an initial wear issue and will stop. Overall, the quality/look of the rug is nice, and what I expected for the money. It is in a high-use family room where I don't spend a lot of money on items.

We have received the Satari blue rug for a while. Each time it was vacuumed, the color became more crisp. There is more yellow/light brown color in the main area as expected, but the good thing is that it does not look bad whatever you drop on the rug. We have a 50's condo with a wood room (very brown colored wood walls), this light blue rug opens the room while the light brown and yellow pulls the room together. There is also somewhat whitish color that reflects with our white ceiling. We have chosen the light blue in 6' X 9' and found that we can use it in different rooms outside of our wood room. So far the shedding is not too bad. Our regular robot vacuum could not pick up the shedding though. We had to resort to our Kirby.

by ok84 A beautiful rug at an unbelievable value
We are extremely pleased with this rug. The colors are exactly what we hoped they would be, and the other reviewer is correct that they best match the photo with the 3 rugs layered on top of each other. In the other photos the colors look much bolder than they appear in real life. The brown and blue base colors work beautifully with our walnut floors, and the lighter coffees, tans, and greens are perfect for lighter floors or for pulling other coordinating colors. The carpet is very comfortable underfoot (we bought the premium rug pad from Ballard) and doesn't seem to shed much aside from the initial vacuum. We looked at a LOT of rugs, and there weren't many in the 10'x14' size that we liked. This one is absolutely perfect and is also one of the least expensive ones we saw. Also, a quick comment about Ballard's service... in the process of moving we missed the delivery of this rug and it was returned to the shipper TWICE. Ballard was accommodating throughout the entire process and made sure we ended up receiving the product without having to pay for any additional shipping. Plus, the representatives are extremely nice on the phone on very helpful. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire purchase experience.

I had been looking at this rug in blue for a couple of years before I actually purchased it. My hesitation was that I usually don't spend this kind of money on something I can't see in person. I obtained a swatch however it was a border piece and didn't show much of the blue that I was more interested in. I finally placed the order and my only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner. This couldn't be more perfect for my living room. My furniture is tan/khaki and the drapes are khaki with cream scrollwork and once the rug was placed everything pulled together perfectly. The quality is incredible. It is thick and plushy when walking - even my teenage boys complimented.
If you are looking for the perfect shades of smoky french blue - you will not be disappointed with this rug.

We just purchased this rug after looking for months for the perfect combination of colors and the right size (we needed a 10x14). This rug was a great choice. The colors are beautiful, although darker than they appear online (be sure to order a swatch so that you have an accurate idea of the colors). The quality of the rug is very good, as well. This rug is a great value at this price point. I'm thrilled to say that it's really transformed our living room!

Just got the cocoa colored rug and am completely happy with it. I'm very impressed by the subtle colors woven in. You can't see them in the pictures online but there's various shades of yellow, green, burgundy and beige in addition to the main colors of blue and brown. Its nice and thick, very plush feeling. This is really a high quality rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Likebeautifulthings Extremely pleased with the quality and design
Extremely pleased with the quality and design in the five Satari rugs. Their coloring truly matches the pictures in the catalogue. Also, all five match which is critical to me as they in connecting rooms. They are beautiful and I am well satisified. I have already recommended Ballards to a friend

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wendy4242 The rug is made of a nice think wool and looks great!
The samples I ordered helped me chose the right color. I will order a coordinating rug to go with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crazyjane Just what we wanted!
We've been looking for a bathroom runner and area rug for well over a year. This rug is perfect for our bathroom. We were looking for a blend of pewter grey, tans, and brown to match our granite counters and tiled floor. The Satari rug compliments all the colors in the room and is holding up very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AngelaB Perfect Blue!
I had looked for a rug for almost 9 months before I ran into the Satari. I was looking for a great blue- no too smoky gray-blue but also not too teal or turquoise blue. This rug was it! The main image with the three rugs layered onto each other is the best match to the actual color of the rug. The browns in the border are not too dark but rather a coffee and light tan combo, which was great for the look I wanted. There are also very subtle pops of yellow, greens and burgundy in the overall design that are perfect to pull from for accent colors. The quality is very high end, and it looks more beautiful in person. Although it did shed a bit when I first received it, it went away after a few vacuums. This rug is a fantastic addition to my living room. It is a statement piece, but it also doesn't look overbearing with additional colors and patterns.

I ordered the 6-foot round Satari rug in cocoa for my master bath. It is kind of an odd shaped room with a shower in one corner, bath in another and vanities on opposite sides. Anyway, a round rug like this one is perfect for unifying the room and setting the color scheme. I love the rug. It is plush, comfy on bare (even wet) feet and has beautiful muted colors. Definitely not cheap looking, and I don't believe I've noticed any shedding at all. Just the perfect rug for my needs but would also work great in any other room and in a different size/shape. BTW, the cocoa and blue versions seem to be the same other than the outer ring/band on the cocoa is blue and it's cocoa on the blue (think I have that correct). Mine is cocoa in the middle/blue on the outer ring. I thought it might be too neutral but that's not the case either. Has a nice subtle mix of colors without being garish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by viennalass The satari rug is true to its Ballard description.
Ordering a 3 x 5 of the carpet really helped in making our decision. That carpet is now in the foyer and the 8 x 10 is in the liviing room. The cocoa brown does not overpower the blue. The design in beautiful; traditional yet with a contemporary flair. With a jute pad, the rug has a very plush feel. We love the carpet.
