Rated 3 out of 5 by matchless beautiful but shows wear & tear quickly
I ordered this rug for my beach house. It is lovely as it is plush and has just the perfect amount of color. The good news is it does not LOOK like an outdoor rug at all. The bad news is that is does not HOLD UP like an outdoor rug. The product description mentions that it is great for a high traffic area. I found the opposite to be true. I am constantly clipping off pulled yarn and it has that highly traveled, fuzzy appearance already, as though its been there for a couple of years rather than a couple of months. Great rug for an area IF it sees little foot (or paw) traffic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mjudge Do Not Recommend Poorly Made
I too initially loved this rug until it received use. Put it under my dining room table to see how I liked it and the wear from pulling chairs out after a few times is horrible! It looks like a cat used it for their claws and I don't have a cat! It appears like it has been shredded. I would not ever recommend it. Beautiful rug but very poorly made!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1Shopper11 Poor quality
I loved the look of this rug and needed a higher pile rug in my kitchen. So, I bought two of these. They looked beautiful when I first received them. However, I have only had the rugs 6 months and they already look terrible. The material is nubbing up all over both of the rugs. They look like they are many years old and need to be replaced. Very disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SoDisappointed Beautiful but so disappointed in wear & tear
I love, love, LOVED this rug. We purchased it for our playroom - we have a 1 year old, a 3 year old and no pets. It was very plush and comfortable for an indoor/outdoor rug. I was impressed with the quality the first week or two. After two months, it has worn so terribly (fuzz balls everywhere, shredding apart at the edges) that we are sending it back. Super disappointed! If you are planning on having this rug in a low traffic area - guest bedroom, sunroom, etc - it should be perfectly fine. This is NOT the choice for a living room, play room, or kitchen!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cyn6480 Poor quality!
I purchased this rug for under my kitchen table thinking it would stand up to more wear and tear than a traditional indoor rug. Unfortunately that was not the case at all. From the beginning, this rug has pilled and shed wherever your feet come in contact with it. I have had this rug under a year and have to replace it already. Very disappointed with this purchase!

This rug is absolutely horrible! It looks worn and dirty within a week no matter the cleaning and vacuuming directions. The only place this belongs is outside and then in the garbage. I want my $300 back!!!!

In the picture the rug appears to be in shades of aqua, white and taupe, but it looks like a used dirty rug. The white is very dingy and the aqua is dull and there are loose yarns in several areas of the rug. It looks like I was shipped a rug someone had used and retuned. I would have sent it back but the woman who cleans for me was here when it came and she opened it, cutting the plastic it was in and threw the plastic and shipping invoice down the trash chute. I have been very pleased with other purchases from Ballard, but this rug is a real disappointment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PJFaithful Don't Buy It!
I purchased this rug in the large size in March of this year (2013) and it did not hold up AT ALL. All the rug fibers have pulled out and the rug looks like it is about 10 years old. The colors have faded as well. I only used a non-rug vacuum head as the instruction stated but still it did not hold up. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuxInChicago Pretty rug
Several times in the past when I've bought rugs online, I've been disappointed because the colors in real life do not match the pictures online. That makes me hesitant to buy rugs online, but this one looked so pretty that I thought it was worth a chance. Good news -- the colors on this one are what they look like!
Because it's an outdoor rug, I was expecting it to be more of a flat mat style. But it's quite plush, which is a nice surprise.

For an indoor-outdoor rug, this rug is wonderful. Very soft and thick. You would not regret this purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FeatherMyNest Color and pattern are perfect. Wear is another story.
I absolutely adore the color and pattern of this rug. It brings a young and fresh look to my petite living room. From the first day, however, there have been problems with the yarn's pulling; it's a hooked rug. It's also 'pilling' where my feet are when I sit on my sofa. The rug is expensive in the size I ordered. It is a lot for me. Because of its design and color, I have put off sending it back thinking I can find a way to live with it.

My first experience purchasing a rug from Ballard Designs. High quality product, very soft underfoot, gorgeous colors. The rug brightens up my laundry room. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3pups Better than expected!
The quality of this rug is much better than I expected! It looks like a wool rug, is nice and thick, and soft on the feet. The colors are rich. The only downside is that my dogs do pull up the fibers with their nails, but that is to be expected with any hooked rug. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TallCanadianGirl Worst rug ever
I have had this rug now for a few of months, and it already looks ready to throw out. I bought it for our newly renovated family room. I have 2 dogs who are well behaved in the house, and no kids. First of all, the rug colors were indeed as expected, no problem there. However, the rug also came with instructions that a vacuum with a traditional beater bar should not be used to clean the rug, but rather an upholstery tool should be used. So, I had to get a special attachment for my central vac to be able to regularly clean it. That did not help much...as a result of being a hooked-type rug, I have to cut down several loops every week that have been pulled up. But more annoying than that, the rug is shedding like crazy (no, it is not dog hair...is carpet fibers). I live in a humid climate, but we have AC in our house. I have never seen anything like it. I have owned several rugs over the years, which I have been able to maintain really well even with large dogs in the house. This one already looks awful. I am now going to have to explore getting some kind of tool to "shave" the shedding fibers...I do that with some of my wool sweaters which "pill" over time. But I don't relish having to get on my hands and knees and spend time doing it with this carpet. I have no idea how this carpet can be considered outdoor too...mine is only indoor, and already looks like it should be replaced. Is a huge disappointment...

Rated 4 out of 5 by McMama Game changer
This rug was a game changer for my living room. I looked for a LONG time, returned other rugs, before finally discovering this rug. It was all I hoped it would be. Feels plush and not like my two other indoor/outdoor rug. Colors are fresh and true to pictures online. Really enjoying my purchase. Just wish it had been at a little lower price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shoptilyoudrop This rug is awesome
I am so pleased with this rug, it's got a nice thick pile to it even though it's an indoor/outdoor rug. I have a puppy who has destroyed another rug and when she has an accident it stays right on top, just wipe it clean! Also, I love the trendy look of this rug, it's a keeper!

I bought two of these and was delighted when they arrived, so soft and pretty! I put them on top of my comfort mats in my kitchen and loved the look!
My delight quickly turned into disappointment after a few weeks. These rugs do not stand up to high traffic, they pilled and fuzzed greatly. They did not wash up well from kitchen splashes. I am returning them today. Thankfully Ballard customer service was very helpful.

My first outdoor rug from Ballard. It looks great on my enclosed patio at my home in Florida. Beautiful colors, soft and a perfet size. I would not hesitate to purchase any item from Ballard Design. They are a good company and delivery was made simple and fast for such a large rug. Thank you

I have been looking at this rug for a few months and finally decided to purchase it for my foyer. I am very happy with how it looks ...the colors are exactly what I thought they would be and they compliment the colors of the walls and the furniture and art in the foyer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KatW429 Not an Outdoor Rug
I bought this rug for my back patio and it is really very pretty and soft (as all of the reviews have said). However, the first night it rained the thing was SOAKED and took over 24 hours in the sun to dry out. I'm not sure this is meant for outdoor use....maybe outdoors but under cover?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Harvardmom I bought two sizes, they have a great look and feel
I bought two for my kitchen a runner and a 4x6 at the door. The colors are perfect and the feel is soft. I bought the indoor/outdoor thinking it will be easy to clean with kitchen use. The 4x6 still looks fabulous but I am a little concerned with the wear I am seeing on the runner. They both get the same wear but the runner is already showing frayed pieces of pile. I suppose I should contact customer service to discuss. I would definitely buy again if the durability is not an issue. I have had several compliments on them too.

I really like this rug, although the "spa" color is definitely more greenish than blue that I was expecting, but overall it's a really nice feature to any room.
