Rated 2 out of 5 by LeopardGirl I wanted to love it
I wanted to love this rug; I wanted it to go perfectly in my new yellow laundry room. I ordered the Tan and had hoped it would exceed my expectations after reading some of the other unflattering reviews. My main objection is that the 'white' in the check pattern isn't white at all. As a pet owner, it reminded me of what white carpet would look like tinged with yellow, if you catch my drift. Sadly, right after I unrolled it I rolled it back up to return. Not a true black & white check patter which is what I was hoping for, and not close enough for me to settle. Really, really, wanted to love it, though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bancy Smart contemporary look
Very pleased with this purchase at the recommendation of my decorator friend. I purchased the runners for my long white tile hallway and they add a fresh contemporary look to the area. I chose the tan color with black and gold (white) accent. Very smart looking!

Rated 1 out of 5 by jva1050 Not what I thought
I'd admired this rug for months before purchasing and was very disappointed in 1)the color green, which had yellow and brown tones in it; and, 2)the quality. The rug bleeds fuzz all the time, even after being vacuumed. I don't recommend this at all. The photo is much more flattering that the actual rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Bathroom Makeover with this rug!
I bought the beige and black to put on the floor in front of my double vanities and what a POP! From there i chose a new black and beige stripped wallpaper and the bathroom looks amazing!

Like one of the other reviews, I have a lot of Mackenzie-Childs. This rug goes great with it. I bought the spa color and thought it looks like the picture. It is more aqua color. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Athena7102 Love the design and feel
I purchased both the brown and red versions of this rug for the eat in kitchen and dining room. They coordinate well in rooms that adjoin. Excited about both colors, these rugs work nicely under the tables and chairs, and feel great underfoot. I was pleased with the ease of ordering and delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle72758 Beautiful quality for an indoor/outdoor rug
The 5x8 Turin rug in tan is in my laundry room, which serves as the entrance point from our garage into our house. It looks like a traditional rug, not flat and lacking texture like an traditional outdoor rug, and has a higher pile than traditional outdoor rugs. We have had this rug for two years and it has stood up amazingly well to the abuse of a family of five and a dog in an extremely high traffic. After two years it is about time for a replacement and I'm trying to decide if I want to get the same rug or make a change.
We previously had another Ballard indoor/outdoor rug in that room, the traditional "flat" rug and I feel that this rug has looked fresher for a longer period of time.
I do like indoor/outdoor rugs for an application like our laundry room/entrance from garage because they withstand such high traffic and can be taken outside to sprayed with a hose to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by babyblue123 Beautiful Rug But NOT As Photo Appears!
This is my first purchase from Ballard. I ordered the runner and smallest size for my kitchen. They are walked on all the time and have never showed any sign of wear what so ever! Love the look fo these rugs!! However, the color of white and black on the trim picture is NOT correctly portrayed in the photograph. The white is a cream/yellow color. But, never the less they are beautiful rugs. I ordered them reading the reviews of past customers knowing I may return them due to all the mixed reviews. But I have decided to definitely keep them and they are just what I wanted! They are easy to clean and super soft! Glad I gave them a try! The free return shipping was a great plus, but I never needed it! Love these rugs!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Snagsby Feels like wool
I bought the olive for my kitchen It feels soft underfoot and the color is great for this high traffic area. I was tempted to buy the purple, which looks great also. Would definitely recommend this- you just have to be careful not to use a really strong vaccuum as it can create pulls.

Rated 3 out of 5 by moho I like the rug design and color, but...
I was really happy to get rugs, I love the design and the colors! I ordered 2 runners and a 2'x3' and the colors are what I expected based on reading the reviews. However, I am disappointed with the "Hand hooked of durable poly-acrylic pile". In less than 2 weeks after putting down the rugs they are all pilled and just look dirty, even though they are not. I have been vacuuming almost every day and they still look bad. I am sending back:-(((

Rated 4 out of 5 by Prezam Hallway Rug that will take a lot of Traffic
I DO like the rug--bought it for my hallway and stairs in from garage. Only complaint would be that the white border doesn't look very white--kinda looks like it's dirty and it is NOT dirty. Maybe it's because it's next to the black stripes, but it looks gray instead of white (which was what I expected) I only looked at it for about a year before I could make the decision to buy it and I WOULD ORDER IT AGAIN, SO OVERALL, GOOD RUG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Artattack Beautiful, great quality
I have these rugs already in my kitchen. I just ordered a second set so I will have replacements when the other ones wear out. Love the look so much that I don't want to chance them being out of stock. Color is very close to the picture. Great product. Love that I can get them on bringing home Ballard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clevershopper Very soft and plush for an outdoor rug
After purchasing many less expensive runners and being very dissatisfied with them I decided to purchase the Turin Rug. And while I agree with others who said the colors are not as vivid as in the catalog picture, I still really love it. It is so plush underfoot and I love the unique look of it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Turin Indoor Outdoor Rug - disappointment
I was disappointed to unwrap the rug to find the colors were not as they presented in the catalogue. The "white" portion of the rug is really a dark beige, and the green is not at all as it appears in the picture. I am sure the product is of decent quality, however for me, I have no use for it and it is back in the wrapper. I have never used it and would like to send it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KHS24 Good rug, not well represented in the group rug photo.
I really like the rug. I was very glad to have read the reader reviews before buying it. I bought the red rug. It is not the bright red color as shown in the photo. It is much closer to the deeper brick color shown in the individual rug photo. Also the off-white sqares are more greyed than white. All that said, the brick red is wahat I wanted and am very happy with the qualityof the rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by urock Looks great and has style.
I purchased this rug for my kitchen to put in an area that will get a lot of wear and tear so I wanted one that could be cleaned easily and often. Usually outdoor rugs are thin. this one is thick and does not look like mose outdoor rugs. It looks great in my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by summerlover Love this rug
I bought this rug for my daughter's new apartment. After reading the reviews on it , and the complaints of color variations form the picture, I decided to order it anyway. My daughter loves it. It is really a great rug for her hallway and the design is very fun. It wears well and is such a great entry statement into her apartment. I have ordered many things from Ballard and they never fail to please.

The red rug is perfect in my kitchen, which has the original red formica counters!

Rated 4 out of 5 by yayasandra Color suprising
This rug works very well for my purposes. However, from the pictures I was sure the darker color in the Sage colored rug was Black when it arrived it was an obvious blue. I really wanted black accent but decided to keep the rug. It is soft and comfortable to walk on barefoot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by discovered Poor quality
I had been admiring this rug for over a year and couldn't wait to receive it. Upon unrolling it I was disappointed with the quality and color of this item. I ordered the green which was much darker than pictured and the black was more of a charcoal gray with an off white. It is not as crisp as it appears in the photo. Within two days of being placed in a moderate traffic area, several loops came loose and began to run. Additionally I started to notice some of the yarn was becoming fuzzy. This is not the ruggedness I expected from a carpet claiming to be indoor/outdoor.

This rug was the color and price range for what I needed in our kitchen area. We added a pad and it is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BDoct27 Vomit stain and smell all gone- amazing!
I had this rug for just a few days and then my son vomited all over it. I was devastated as I thought i would end up needing professional cleaners to come in and treat it. However, with just a warm washcloth and a touch of dreft, followed up by a quick vacuum, the stain and smell were all gone. Could not have been happier. I expected shedding based on other reviewers, but I haven't had any. Also, it is VERY soft. My kids love playing and rolling around on it. Great rug. Tks Ballard!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ingatoo UGH
After reading these reviews, I think the quality control of this rug manufacturer should be called into question by Ballard Designs. Consistant they are not.
The rug placement in my home has more use on one end than on the other. Although I have continually turned this rug, the ends that are more heavily walked on have a "fuzzy" effect. The fibers actually look furry while the center is smooth. The color of this rug is also not as pictured in the catalog.

Rated 2 out of 5 by reno123 Color not as expected
While this is a pretty rug, the color shown online described as "red" is really more like a rose. Also, the size is smaller than indicated. I'm going to try again with a different color and hope it works.

After looking at all the big box stores, we finally found just the rug we were looking for from Ballard Designs. The rug arrived quickly and has been an excellent addition to our home. Friends and family members have complimented the rug without our even fishing for compliments or drawing attention to the rug. We're very happy with our purchase and the service we received.

First, let me say that I love Ballard--always good customer service, fast shipping, etc. I looked online at every picture I could find of the Turin rug in Tan, to be sure of what it would look like, then was satisfied to go ahead and order it. I was after a Mackenzie Childs look and this seemed perfect. It came very quickly! Unfortunately, the checks that appear white or nearly white in the pictures are a dingy yellowish color that doesn't even go with the tan in the rug. I don't know if it shows too well in my photos. They let me send it back, and paid for the shipping. Good company.
