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.

Color was not as shown online and in catalog.
Seagrass color was dark and appeared dirty looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hartfordgirl Perfect summer rug
I used this rug in my guest bedroom but it would also work well in a living room. It gives the room an airy, summer ish feeling and goes well with my sea foam blue bedding. It is a substantial weight, rests well on the floor and is comfortable underfoot. The sea grass does give off a strong strong grassy smell which we do not mind but is taking a little while to dissipate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gildthelily Excellent value!
These seagrass rugs are really tough and durable! Especially if you have pets! I would highly recommend it. The only negative is that you can't use your brushroll feature on your vacuum too much or it could damage the natural fibers if you do it on a regular basis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luv2Shell Well made. Looks great in front of washer and dryer.
The Seagrass Rug is a bit hard for walking on in bare feet. It would be helpful if the catalog would supply additional information describing the stiffness or softness of the natural grass rugs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Glommom It's pretty but stinky!
The rug is a great size and looks good but it smells like a gerbil cage in the room where it is

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mdmg Appearence & Quality are not very good
The quality of the seagrass weave is not very good so therefore the appearance of the runner and rugs look like they are torn and knotted. They look like irregular product.

This seagrass rug is everything I hoped it would be and the trim color is just right. Nice quality and looks great in my family room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hothoosier nice weave but backing was cracking and falling off from the moment it came out of shipping packaging
The rug looks nice, nothing less than we would expect from Ballard. However I was shocked to find that the latex backing was coming off before it even hit the floor. It leaves a mess I can not vacuum up often enough.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PinkPoppy It is orange!
The rug is well made but the color is off. It does not look like the one in the picture or in the outlet store. The natural seagrass is a light orange. My daughter described it perfectly by saying it looked like it had a bad spray tan. I had to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kate29 Smells?
I ordered the rug recently and it took about a week to finally roll out all the way and settle down. Love the look and quality but it has made our entire downstairs smell terrible!!!!!! Has anyone else had this problem?

Rated 5 out of 5 by neen925 This has been a great rug!
I just looked up when we bought this rug and was shocked to realize we have had it almost 7 years! We have the brown bordered 9x12 rug in our dining room. The seagrass feels nice under foot, and the weave is... well, it's seagrass after all so expect exactly what nature provides. Our rug has held up extremely well, and we have 2 very naughty cats (pumas?) Maybe time to order some for another room? Hmmm...

Rated 3 out of 5 by kateT It’s okay
It looks fine from afar, but on closer inspection, it frays a little and sheds. It has taken a long time to settle from being rolled.
It is near another brand’s seagrass rug, and although I paid more for that rug (a long time ago) you can’t compare quality. You get what you pay for with this rug.

I was looking for a rug for my kitchen area. This seagrass rug works perfectly and it is easy on bare feet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northfork Met our expectations
Its kind of scary buying a rug online, but I figured that at least I knew what seagrass was and Ballard Design had a good name. Thank goodness I was right on both accounts. The rug looks great! I only wish the picture would have captured the detail better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FruFru Attractive rug, great texture
I ordered two of these rugs and they arrived very quickly and neatly packaged. They are a very nice, textured woven rug. The color is exactly what I picked out of the catalog. They look richly woven. I am 100% pleased with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Inkwell Disappointing
I bought this 3x5 seagrass rug as a replacement for one that I had for years just inside my front door. The rubber backing had begun to disintegrate so I wanted to replace it with something that was as close to identical as I could find. I looked at some on other websites but chose to order from Ballard because I thought the quality would be superior to the ones that I saw at lesser prices. Wrong! The weave of this rug is coarse and has fibers sticking up in places. I'm very disappointed in the quality and I know I'll have to replace it sooner than I would like. It was just too much trouble to send back. I also bought a sisal runner that I am not happy with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Phillipe Product s exactly as pictured
The Seagrams rug is a great addition to our sunroom. The color is as pictured in the catalogue. The rug also cleans very easily; our dog got sick and we were able to clean leaving no stain. The only negative thing I can say is that the edges of the rug are not perfectly straight, but it is not too noticeable.

It appears that in several places, the fibers are coming apart. Makes me wonder if it's going to hold up for the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cukacoop SeaGrass Rug
I ordered the seagrass rug trimmed in black for a hallway. It looks great!!! This is a split level room with the hallway looking into the living area. The black trim is very pleasing to the eye. There is a lot of traffic on this rug and it is holding up very well. I shopped for a long time before buying this rug. Always looking for a "treasure" at a reasonable cost and I found one! Almost forgot...the latex backing is great.
