Rated 5 out of 5 by LovetheTurin Absolutely LOVE this carpet!
For many years I have wanted the Turin Rug! The pattern was perfect for my style. Every catalog that came in the mail from Ballard, I would immediately looked for the Turin rug. I have almost placed an order so many times with the different colors. Never feeling comfortable to spend the money where it could go somewhere else. When your sale came in June, I finally decided to buy at least one Turin rug. My husband and I eat dinner in the living room. Our children are gone so it's okay now for us. I have cleaned the carpet under our feet SO MANY times. This BEAUTIFUL rug (3' x 5' in tan) is just right!! It meant so much that my wish for a Turin rug came true on sale and with free shipping! I would love a whole house full of them in different colors!!!!!!!!! I'll dream on!

by OnlineShopperCA Fell Apart: In just 30 days my rug looks like it's 10 years old.
I've waited three years to buy this beautiful rug and when the priced dropped I ordered a 5x7.6" size. The rug arrived inside a plastic bag and was very heavy to carry. It would be impossible to return- bag has to be torn in order to open rug and would need to be "repackaged" to ship by UPS again.
I followed the included "maintenance" insert and did not vacuum the rug. I'm using it indoors in my office and my feet barely touch the floor as I sit curled up in a leather reading chair. In 30 days right below my stationary chair (no wheels or movement on the chair) the rug has frayed badly! The threads on the rug are rolling into what resembles hairballs...and in a space where foot travel is minimal. Very disappointing. Other places on the rug are also fraying. In just 30 days my rug looks like it's 10 years old.
I did read other reviews with similar issues and felt reassured when the response of some reviewers was "don't vacuum." I was fooled- the vacuum is not the reason this rug falls apart...it's the construction and materials. Shame on me..I lost all my hard earned money on this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Claudia I love this product.
The order arrived in a timely manner. I have admired this pattern of rug for a while now and decided to order three for my upstairs hallway. They are quite plush for an indoor/outdoor rug which makes them more comfortable to walk on than the previous rugs I was using. Look closely, though, at the picture online. There is a subtle striping that I wasn't aware of when I ordered. Nonetheless, I am quite satisfied with these rugs.

I bought this in brown. It's a light chocolate brown so it matches the picture on my monitor perfectly. Rugged yet looks like expensive wool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TuckLabLady Great looking, doesn't wear well
First let me say I love the way this rug looks and feels under my feet. I ordered the green and am very pleased with the pattern and design. However, I am dissappointed in how it has worn. I bought this rug less than a year ago and it looks like it is ten years old. Granted, I have it in a high traffic area but it has pilled terribly. I thought this may stop as time went on but it hasn't. Unfortunately I will have to replace this rug soon. Even my husband commented on the fact that it looks bad.
If you will be using this rug in a low traffic area I would recommend it. Otherwise, I would look for something else.

The weight and feel of the rug is quite nice. The color I ordered (and truly wanted) was red in the catalog and while the actual color of the rug is more in the rust family and has more orange than a true red, it is still a nice rug.

The tan color is warm and goes well on my wood floors. I like the texture. It doesn't feel or look like an outdoor carpet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CapeCodL This product does not wear well.
This rug is in a low traffic area of a summer house that is only used 4 months each year. The rug is very fuzzy and looks a mess. I am so disappointed that I wasted my money on this rug. I expected Ballard Designs' merchandise to be of high quality. I do not know how it could be listed with outdoor living in mind; I see how it looks now so I can't imagine what it would look like adding outdoor dampness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Studiodweller Love walking on this rug!
Great looking rug, you can see that from the pictures. It really pulls together the room I have it in. But I was very surprised how thick and comfortable it is to walk on. The quality is top notch. I'm very pleased with my purchase, which arrived promptly, by the way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosesniece Love it!
I love this rug. I bought it as the finishing touch to our home office. The only reason I gave 4 rather than 5 stars is that the first rug I received had two holes in it and I had to return it, which was a drag, but customer service made it relatively painless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Agilek9s Looks good but pills & sheds
Since this is an indoor/outdoor carpet I was surprised at how much the carpet pills up and sheds. Also, if you have pets and they will be on the rug their nails can pull up the loops on the rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zanyzebra This rug makes a statement in any area you put it indoors or out
I love this rug. I would have one in each room (hmm) of the house in if I could. Received a lot of compliments on it. Wish it were a little more plush

Rated 4 out of 5 by nanaX3 Quality rug
This rug is a good value for the price. However, I ordered the red one, and it is not red. I would call it more wine colored, so was disappointed by the color. Kept it, as I will use it but not as I intended for Christmas color in the entry hall. My grandson thought it was kind of brown in color, so don't order this if you want a true red rug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nemmers Great wear!
This is the second time I have ordered this rug for my entries, different colors.. Love it. Wears well, hides dirt. Just don't use your regular vacuum often on it as it pulls the threads or makes it look fuzzy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by krazykat Excellent choice
We looked for quite a while for a new rug for right inside our front door. We took a chance ordering one online, and we are so glad we did! It's beautiful, well made, and perks up the room. It's a very nice shade of red, more rusty than bright. We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bobc just what i wanted
Just ordered three more turin rugs in addition to the one that arrived last week. I wanted an indoor/outdoor rug which was easy to clean for the kitchen in a weekend cottage. Loved it since it looks more like a traditional rug. Got the red which as everyone has noted is more like a rust..which is exactly what I wanted. Have ordered three more for locations in the cottage

Rated 2 out of 5 by lalawyergal color not as I had hoped
Unfortunately I bought the red rug to go in front of my kitchen sink and it is a lovely red but the black diagonals are actually purple. Since I had no idea this would be purple, it does not look good at all in my kitchen. Disappointing! I so wanted to love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Andycat Disappointed
I have bought numerous times from Ballard and been happy with the items. I purchased this rug for the living room some time ago and although the design is great, the rug has not worn well at all. As others have written it became fuzzy and loops pulled. I wish it came in a different material as the design and colors I find very attractive, but in a about a year it needed to be replaced. This is a house with low traffic and adults. Sorry to place a bad review, but it did not perform well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by liltwit Not good if have a large dog
I bought this rug after seeing it at my mother in law's house. When it arrived I loved the color (red) and the way it felt. Unfortunately because of the looping on the first day some of the rug loops were coming up. My dog is 50 lbs. I think my dog's nails (they are trimmed) would pull the loops up. At first I trimmed these loops but then my dog "played" with the loops and caused a big area to be "bald". My MIL has a smaller dog (10 lbs) and has had no issues and loves how you can just take the rug outside and spray it off. Just didn't work for us and unfortunately after less than a week I'm sending it back...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Floored Just as hoped!
I read all the comments before purchasing just to be sure. I am happy to say it looks exactly like the picture and I really like it. Something I was concerned about was whether I would need a pad under it, and that's one reason why I read all the comments to find out. It does not need a pad. I wanted to pass that info on for the next person. The rug has a lot of character and is well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KitchenRugs Nice rugs, but...
Love the size, shape and features of the rugs. The one point of dissatisfaction is that the color is in no way red. It's a brownish, purple-ish maroon. Disappointing, but we kept them anyway b/c so comfy underfoot. Too bad the photos are so altered online and in the catalogs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Houndhouse Good but color not true
I love the quality of this rug but the color is more of a brick or brownish red. I was disappointed, as I wanted a true red. The quality is great though.

We were looking for an outdoor rug for outside our
front door. We have a bench and plants and thought
it would be enhanced with a rug.
This rug is perfect for the spot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by decoratingmomma Perfect color/Poor durability
I love this rug and it is the perfect color and style for my entry way. I have had it for almost 6 months and it looks completely worn out. I have trimmed pulls but is has gotten so fuzzy there is nothing else I can do. Already looking for a new rug. Love Ballard products but very disappointed with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by turinpurchaser nice rug, sample should be available
we are happy with our rug. it is soft and is a nice focal point for our seating area. I would prefer that the beater bar on the vacuum cleaner could be used, and the color was not quite as bright a green as comes across on the website. if a sample for this rug was available, we might have chosen a different color. all in all, though, we are happy with our purchase.

I love the way this rug feels underfoot. You would never know its indoor-outdoor. Color is what I expected from pictures. I haven't cleaned it yet. But if it does as well as other Ballard indoor-outdoor I won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisamg This is a great Rug
I purchased this rug for my kitchen area after reading the reviews that were positive. This rug although indoor/ outdoor doesn't look like that it is very high quality. Great rug would highly recommend. I purchased the green.
