Rated 4 out of 5 by SonomaLaxMom great quality
The quality is very good. I'm slightly disappointed that the trim is more blue than pics indicated. Was hoping for more of a greenish hue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by madsneen Great look for summer!
My son and daughter-in-law gave me a wonderful Seagrass rug for my birthday. It replaces an oriental. It has made my house look ready for summertime...a brand new look! The quality is wonderful and feels great under foot. I love it and am thinking of adding another, Definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cuppers Sturdy Seagrass rug
The rug is well made and not at all flimsy. The Seagrass is not comfortable for bare feet and a few stray loops kind of made it look better suited as an outdoor product. Latex backed so one could trim off the stray fibers. It does have a rustic look to it.
I used the 8' runner for my laundry room to catch dirt from garage entry. Works very well for what I wanted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Terri828 Nice rug---but it smells
The rug is very nice and the in-house delivery was great--however, the rug will smell like jute for weeks after you get it. the smell is still in my house 3 weeks after delivery. I bought the very big rug, so I didn't send it back.

We've only had the rug a short time and really like it. I wish we had received instructions on how to clean it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katimatt Repeat buy but...
This is my third purchase of the seagrass rug. I have been pleased with the first two but the third arrived with what appeared to be a mud stain on the border. I did not contact Ballard as I did not want the hassle of packing it up and hauling it off to ship it back, and luckily, the stain mostly brushed off and can be hidden under furniture. Quality control is a bit off if something like that can be shipped to the customer! Other than that, I really like the look of the rug. I have them in an adjoining hallway, sunroom and mud room, and I love the addition of the natural fibers into my home. The rug has a slightly rough under-foot feel, but it is not terrible- not even bad enough to dissuade my one year old from crawling over it. I have had luck removing stains from the border, but not as much on the fibers themselves (dogs & kids!). Overall, I recommend this rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tristanspeak seagrass rug looks fabulous, offers a therapeutic massage to bare feet, and even seems to rebuff dog nails and hair.
The seagrass rug is absolutely great. Looks fabulous, feels fabulous, and even smells great. Highly recommend.

by CPP87 Love it!!
I just got this rug in yeaterday and I already love it! I ordered the 9x12 bark rug and could not be happier! The rug actually smells nice and fresh almost like tea, it unrolled very easily and totally flattened overnight. It looks darker now but I know it will lighten up a bit. To me it is not rough at all and I do not mind walking on it barefoot. I have 2 year old Labrador and she has already been running around and playing on it a lot and there is not a single snag! I don't have a rug pad for it yet but will more than likely get one. Another great thing is that it was backordered but it got in early! Great rug and a great price and I can not wait to get more for other rooms!

Rated 4 out of 5 by bear111 I love the seagrass runner that I received.
The only problem that I saw was that a small strand of the seagrass was pulled so it stuck up. I was just going to glue it down. I haven't done anything about it as I thought it was natural with seagrass rugs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lorr This has been a difficult product.
The rug simply will not lie flat. It arrived tightly rolled up. I have spent over 3 weeks trying to get it to relax and lie flat. Right now, I have a ladder standing on it. I've put chairs, pots, just about anything heavy to try to get the edges flat, but to no avail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keltoad LOVE this rug! Wish I had bought it sooner
I purchased this rug for my living room and my only regret is that I had bought it sooner. I have seen this type of rug in high end local furniture stores at more than double the price. I waited until the rug was on sale at Ballard and purchased it at a great price. It's sturdy, good looking, and a great neutral backdrop for the room. I had read other reviews that said that it is very pet friendly and I can now agree with that, as my dog threw up on it only a few weeks after I had purchased it. It left a dark stain on it for a few days and I feared that it was ruined but I then realized that it was only wet. Once it dried, you couldn't see anything at all. I love the fact that it has "gripper" backing so that it doesn't slide. I will definitely be purchasing this rug for other rooms in my house.

This is a great foundation that can go from country to sophisticate contemporary chic. The price is very reasonable for the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeachyLady63 Love the design of this carpet. It totally goes with my beachy theme.
I must have looked online for hours to find a nice rug to put in my bedroom. I recently had hardwood floors installed but still wanted a nice rug that would cover the area under the bed and still be exposed on each side and the end of the bed. I wasn't even going to look at the Ballard Designs web site because I thought it would be too expensive. Well it must have been my lucky day when I did take a look because the rug I really liked happened to be on sale and FREE shipping!
It's exactly what I wanted for my beach theme bedroom. I picked a 6x10 rug and it was under $200.00 which I knew was a great price. Good quality and looked exactly like the picture showed.
All in all I am very happy with this rug purchase.

I bought 2 of these 2x3 rugs and I love them. They're not too rough nor too soft and I think they'll last for years. Great for an entry rug, an at the kitchen sink rug, bathroom rug, bedroom rug, you-name-it rug! I want a room size one next. The sales on these are too good to be true! Love Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JediMT Incredible value!
What an incredibly good value these rugs are, and so very beautiful, too. I ordered the small 2x3 first to check on the quality, and soon after ordered the runner for my kitchen work area, the 10 x 14 for my living room, and the 4x6 for the patio door in my living room, all with the bark border which almost matches the rug for a very subtle look. They look sensational on our very dark hardwood floors and warm these spaces right up. There was a slight grassy smell for a few days, but it was not objectionable at all. My best rug purchases ever! Thank you, Ballard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BWhite For the price it is good value
I needed a big rug for a great room. I love seagrass and thought this was a great price. I love the look and was a little disappointed with the number of flaws in the seagrass. Even though I read about it before I ordered it still surprised me. That being said, I'm keeping it and clipping stray seagrass or tucking them in to hide them. STILL a good value for a Huge rug that you can fix yourself

Rated 3 out of 5 by MB4505 I'm basically happy with two exceptions.
Rubber backing not evenly applied and missing in some areas.
Also, the seagrass weave is cut and fraying in several places

Rated 1 out of 5 by stwidllc Very Poor Quality
This rug was very poor quality. There were broken fibers everywhere which were tied in knots on the face of the rug. The rubber backing was crumbling and disintegrating on touch. It was irregularly shaped--not cut properly at all. Very disappointed. I have sent it back for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTGrandma Does the trick!
Ordered 2 runners with tan/khaki border for heavily-trafficked hallways. Since I wanted them to look nice and take a beating, I settled on this product. They work perfectly and their neutral color blends nicely. Just right!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Merriweather Great looking rug that improves the look of my dining room
I purchased this rug to warm up my dining room, which I had just painted a turquoise-y blue. It looks fantastic under my dark-wood dining room table and lends a beachy, natural feel to the room--exactly what I was hoping for. I did notice the seagrass smell some reviewers are talking about, but it faded drastically after one week and I don't even smell it anymore (and it wasn't a bad smell...just noticeable.) My only problem with the rug is that there is a small black smudge mark on the fabric edging in one place. It's not bothering me enough to return the rug, however. All in all, a great value. I would definitely recommend this rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NJDecorator The look and quality are good for the price.
I bought this rug for my home office to be used with a small area rug over it in the seating area. There are a couple of areas where the tied ends of the seagrass are more obvious than others, which I haven't noticed in the ones I bought four years ago, but my small area rug hides them in the more open space of the office. All in all, the ones I bought years ago are still in great shape so I love the rug. Compared to other seagrasses I've looked at, it's great looking and a good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shrdug Looks Great (from a distance)
I really like the look of the natural seagrass and the border in Spa is a soft tranquil color that compliments my décor perfectly. My only complaint is that the seagrass was cracked in a couple of places or unwoven. Customer service was great & quick about sending out another one. I had a new rug delivered and it was worse that the first one. I kept the first one because I put a trunk on top of it to hide the bad spots. Had it not been on sale, I probably would not have kept it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sassy1 I love everything about this rug!
I was nervous about ordering this rug, after reading some of the reviews, but as it turns out, I was very happy with my purchase. My husband and I re-rolled it up, with the backing on top, and left it in the garage for a couple of days. That pretty much took care of the "laying flat" issue.
The quality is great, the color of the binding is exactly what I wanted, and it looks perfect in our casual living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Azure2 Easy to enjoy!
I bought this rug to go with my shabby chic living room and it looks great. I placed another smaller rug on top of it at a different angle to give it a bit of more interest. The dog recently threw up on it and I was able to wash it out easily! Another good reason to buy.
