I am so pleased with my Turin rug as it's very soft to walk on and its colors compliment my kitchen perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gladeslover Not what I expected
Since I've purchased other outdoor rugs, I failed to read the details before purchasing this one. I live in a tropical climate so when I saw the words, "indoor/outdoor", I expected a jute or sisal type material, which would be gorgeous in tan with this black and white geometric design. However it is thick and has the look and feel of wool underfoot, which is the opposite of the "cool" feeling I intended. Furthermore the "white" it actually off white. The "tan" is two shades of light and dark tan. It is okay, but not really my taste nor what I had in mind. I'll probably return it. The delivery was very efficient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheRiver Vibrant rug for kitchen
I bought two of these rugs in red for my kitchen -- one by the door and one by the island. The colors are the same as others have reported -- not red but russet, not white but beige. A bit difficult to clean with a vacuum set to floor suction but carpet suction does pull up threads.

Slightly disappointed in the color, which is somewhat subdued from photo in catalog or online, but it still works in my room! Good to rely on Ballard's once again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrMom444 I want to get another!
I purchased two of the red rugs for my downstairs TV/Family room two years ago. Now I want to buy another. The color was a beautiful rusty red and it is still the same color. The red color went beautifully with my espresso brown couch. The fibers did pill when it first arrived, but no more than other (even more expensive rugs) that I have bought. The rugs have taken much abuse from my children who have spilled and wiped many times. The smaller rug is front of the door that goes to the outside. The kids come in wet from the lake and the dog runs in with dirty pays. This is the reason that I want another of these rugs for another corner of the room. I have an art area for my younger girls and have had a pottery barn rug there. It has held up well for the past 10 years but the colors do not match the rest of the decor. I think this rug would do well and hold up to the abuse too.

Purchased one runner and loved it so much, purchased another for the other hallway. Have had them both for about 2 months and they are just perfect! Very thick and comfortable.

Made well, very comfortable/plush, hasn't and doesn't seem like it will "roll" on the edges with time. Would purchase again and might do so in another color and another size. With the % off coupon, very affordable.

I ordered this rug, size 5 x 7'6" in purple, and it is fantastic! I have had many compliments and people are always asking where I bought it. The colors are true to the pictures with the white being white, the black being black & the purple is a lovely, rich shade. Very easy to care for. Thanks for a great rug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MiDesigner wonderful rugs to use indoors
Once again we have ordered and used the Turin Rugs in an interior setting. They are a great value for the weight and style and work wonderfully for kitchens, baths, and foyer areas. The clean-ability is a great feature to provide style and function in a busy home.

I love this rug! It had a bit of an odor when I first unrolled it, but that went away. And, yes, the color is different than the picture. The white is not really white at all, but that worked out great in my house. Though, I could see how some might be disappointed when they realize that. Mine does not shed as much as some of the other reviewers experienced. It looks great in my room. It has just the right amount of texture I was looking for. And the price was right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jsue416 Just love this rug!!
Not sure what other reviewers are complaining about! It comes with instructions for care and cleaning and am full aware all new rugs may shed. I just received this rug and am very pleased with the overall appearance, durability, feel under foot and look. It's in my kitchen which is high traffic and so far, not one problem! May be purchasing another soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by plpread Initially a Fab looking Rug, later dissappointment
When we bought this in June 2012 we were so pleased at how nice it looked. This sits in our front entry hall and like many people, we, 98% of the time use our back door. I say this to point out that it gets little foot traffic. After one year it is snagged and fuzzy in spots. I am trimming away with scissors as instructed. For so little use, while the colors and design are pleasant, the texture is awful. I use a central vac system and don't believe the vacuum is causing this. I am bewildered as to why it is so fuzzy and disappointed that while sold as perfect for indoor/outdoor use it looks very sad for just one year old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by camrosegal Holds color,easy to clean, very happy
I have these rugs in my kitchen and they take a beating. Once a year, I take them outside and wash them with a hose, scrub brush, and laundry detergent. I spin them dryish in my washing machine then lay them out in the sun to dry, flipping them over to get both sides dry. I cut off the occasional snags, and these rugs are as good as new.
Really happy with them and great bang for the buck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Loveoutdoorliving Very Disappointed!!!!
After searching months for the perfect rug to place in my patio area I was pleased to find the Turin rug in tan/black. It was exactly what I had been looking for. I ordered the largest size and couldn't wait for its arrival. I waited until early May to place it in the patio area. You can imagine my extreme disappointment when the colors completely faded and the rug aged as if it had been weathered for years after only being out for less than two months. I would certainly not recommend this product to anyone who plans to use it as an outdoor rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redaleet Love the pattern!
I have had this rug now for about three weeks and am very pleased with it. I have the runner in tan and am using it in my kitchen where there is constant traffic. I have no complaints! There have been no pulls, and any shedding that has occurred has been very minor (almost not worth mentioning except that several other reviewers seemed to have problems with shedding), and is no different than what happens with any new rug. I expect that as I continue to vacuum it, the shedding with eventually stop.
I do NOT use my beater bar attachment.
I do love this rug -- it is very sharp looking, easy to maintain, and very comfortable under foot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by outdoorshopper Beautiful blue color. It really brightens my entry way
The runner is exactly as it appears in the catalog. The color blue is bright and cheerful, exactly what I wanted in a dark hall. I have vacuumed it and had no problems. It cleans up well as I have 2 dogs who use the hall to go in and out. That is the reason I got an outdoor carpet for that area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JJGG Looks great but poor quality
Unlike other reviewers, the rug and color look great and work for me. I received it quickly and thought it looked terrific when I put it down. My problem is the quality. I thought an indoor/outdoor would work well for the kitchen. But, after just 4 days, the rug looks terrible--fuzzy shedding and the loops are all uneven. It's a mess and looks like it is several years old. Thank goodness for Ballard's good return policy. It is going back!

The rug is well-made, but be aware that the color is not as pictured. I bought the tan rug, and the striped trim is not black and white; it's black and pale yellow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CharleystheDog Not holding up at all
I asked for this rug for Mother's Day this year as I was enchanted with the robin's egg blue color called spa. It arrived and looked so bright and wonderful that I ordered another to keep for years down the road when the original looked shabby--believing that an indoor-outdoor rug would last a long time in our seldom used dining room. I was wrong. We have a pad under it. We vacuum without beaters. We have a dog who lies in one particular spot. That spot is a mess of fine pulled threads, as if the dog's hair was pulling out threads. Dirty I could understand but this looks like a sweater washed 1000 times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JoanW Color Not As Pictured
I have been eyeing these rugs for months for my kitchen. I ordered (3) of them in tan of different sizes. Ballard Design did an awesome job in delivering them quickly, but I was disappointed that the off-white color appearing in the photograph was a dingy yellow/tan. It's not at all the same color as the lighter flecks throughout the rugs. The rugs looked like they needed a good cleaning. While I'm disappointed the rugs didn't work out, I'm pleased with the overall Ballard Design experience. Customer service was wonderful and made the return process easy. This is my first purchase from Ballard, but I'll be shopping with them again as they do stand behind their products.

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.
