Rated 5 out of 5 by JET64 The rug looked exactly like the catalog display.
The rug met my expectations completely. And it even uncurled quickly so it was easy to set up. The color matches the picture. Looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tennisplayer I really like this rug. It is very attractive and the softness makes a great indoor rug. I have it in the den. I would purchase it again.

The rug I ordered looked great in the catalog. Unfortunately it keeps snagging and doesn't look that good. It doesn't appear that way in the catalog. So I'm sort of stuck I guess with always having to clip the threads. I don't think I will buy a rug from a catalog again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sshadie Great Style & Texture
Ordered the brown Turin almost two years ago to add some fun to our more formal dining room furniture. We love it! It has worn well even with one corner being in a high traffic path. Rich color and texture. We just put the tan in our kitchen and it's perfect on the hardwood floors with gold/cream granite. Placing an order now for a tan runner to go on tile in our entry. I have had no problems with pulled fibers despite having a husband who is fanatic about floors and vacuums daily. Am always pleased with my purchases and have multiple rugs, tables and lighting in our home from Ballard Designs.

by Lebby Love this rug!
I completely remodeled my kitchen last year with new floors, appliances, and cabinets. We have hardwood floors and I needed something durable to protect them from spills and easy to clean. This indoor/outdoor runner is perfect. The colors are wonderful and the texture is thick and cushiony. I thought about getting the red or green to compliment the colors throughout my kitchen, but decided on the tan which pulls in the colors of my granite. Perfect choice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KOBE Wonderful Purchase
I have been on the hunt for a rug,which would actually compliment our white/gray marble floors and this is just the rug. It works with our color palette instead of competing with it. I was unsure of the coloring based off a few of the reviews. The tan is more modeled vs. solid tan, but I actually found that to work better at hiding strings and things.
We placed the rugs and runners in a high traffic area, complete with kids and two dogs. So far they have held up beautifully and we have had no issues with snags or runs. I would highly recommend this rug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Precious1030 Thicker Than Expected
I use the brown rug in my Foyer with a rug pad underneath. Color works well with our decor. We take our shoes off at the door and this rug feels good considering it can be used outdoors. The padding definitely helps keep the luxurious feel that I expect but the rug is thick enough to be used wothout one. I came back to order another for my garage door entry and laundry room. I am in need of two runners in different lengths. Would definitely order again if it came in the right lengths. I am happy with my purchase. Especially considering it was supposed to be a temporary solution!

Rated 4 out of 5 by buckeye02 Color not true to picture
We ordered the green rug and were a little disappointed with the color. It was more olive green than a sage green. It will still work, but would have preferred the lighter color represented in the catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by coffeemom Very well made rug, great value and durable.
I picked out this rug because of the incredible price. Thought that if it wasn't the best made it wouldn't really matter since it was so inexpensive. Boy was I surprised. This is a quality made product. I even had one shipped to my daughter and she was very happy with it too. We are both using it in our homes even though it is made to be outdoors as well. I also liked the fact that it was made in Belgium.

I am using the brown/black rug in the mud room coming in from the garage. It looks good and cleans up well. The only caution I would have is that the part that looks off white in the picture is more yellow.

Love it! Purchased runner and smaller sized rug for my kitchen. Looks and feels like a tradition wool rug, but cleans up easily with soap and water. So spills and lots of foot traffic are no problem.

I love this rug, looks and feels like it's made from wool.So far I've only vacuumed, however. the rug still appears clean and fresh. I would order another if I needed to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by designer2 This product has a lot of "punch" in design and color.
I think the rug would work best in the lighter color tones. The border does pill and the center collects a lot of lint. I think it would work best in a less busy area of the house. I use mine in the kitchen.

This rug was even better in real life than in the photo. I got the red one, and the color is richer than in the photo. It's also thicker than I expected which gives it the impression of better quality. I'm delighted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by melsielewlew not what it looks like
I ordered the sage rug and was disappointed when I saw it. It is not as bright as it looks like in the picture. The sage part is made up of different shades. The black and white edges are more cream and black and it looked like it was dirty on the edges. I was surprised b/c Ballards is so nice and it looked so pretty in the pictures. I got the smaller rug on sale and am using it for my mud room, so I decided to just keep it. Had I gotten a bigger rug and paid more, I would have returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by springhillmom Dimensions were wrong in catalog, but love it!
I love this rug...it's super soft and has a great rusty red color to it. My only problem is that it almost didn't fit in the space I bought it for because it was 5 1/2 inches longer and wider than listed in the catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SierraLately Great Rug for the Price
I ordered two of these to place inside my front and back door. I have had them for several months and they have held up well. I have not had any shedding or snags as others have reported but I do not have indoor pets. The color (sage) and design was true to the online photos.

I love this rug. I purchased one for my mud room and one for my kitchen. They look great and look more expensive than what they were. A great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by michelle424 Better than expected!
This rug has so much more depth to it in person than in the catalog. It does not look or feel like your typical indoor/outdoor rug. I just ordered another one, but it was backordered - I can't wait to get it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mmbo Nice rug, plush, color is a little deceiving, the tan,inside the diamond is really brown thread mixed with tan, if you zoom you can see it.
Inside the diamonds, the thread is medium brown mixed with a lighter tan, so it really does look much different than the picture,. It was the lightest color, so i picked it, and I kept it because it is a fun rug, but dont expect it to be a straight light tan insude the diamonds.i

The first day I put this rug inside our side entrance, it began to fray and pick. So disappointed as the design was perfect for our decor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SonomaMom I liked -- but maybe not the best for those with pets.
I really liked the design and color of these rugs when they arrived. I have a large one by my front door and the runner down my hallway (both in brown). My main complaint is that they haven't held up that well. I haven't had them 6 months and they already show a lot of wear. That being said, I do have two dogs and two cats (and one kid!) -- and perhaps we're too much traffic for them. They were snagging the first day they were out. I'm going to replace them with something more durable. We were probably just too rough on them -- they are nice looking though! For a more mellow house!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SarahQ Looks Great!
I have this rug (the tan color) in my kitchen under the breakfast table/chair set and it looks really good. It was a good rug choice because we have four children who spill food at various times....so I can wipe the rug easily to get things up. I didn't want to buy something really expensive to put there for them to ruin. The rug feels good underfoot too. We have had it for several months now and it is holding up pretty well. The edges outside the table do get more wear than the middle, of course. I would have given it 5 stars, but it goes get little picks in it and some fuzzy areas....and I hand vacuum it, so that can be a pain. I do NOT use the vacuum cleaner with the beater bar. Wasn't sure about the "pattern" in the tan area when we first got it, but I have grown to love it. The "color" is NOT solid as you might think from looking at the photos. It is variegated and gives the rug more of a textured appearance. I find that it helps to hide dirt and wear, which is a good thing where I have chosen to use it. Just be aware of that variegated appearance before you order which gives a more casual look to the rug, in my opinion. Overall....great rug....and we are happy with it. I would order it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NYCTrish Great outdoor rug
Pros: Feels thick, plush like an indoor wool rug. Makes my balcony look like an outdoor room! I like the crisscrossed pattern alot.
Cons: The pattern is more "diffuse" than I expected. I expected a solid green with black/white pattern. Instead the green is flecked with white. I can live with it, but would have preferred the green areas to be solid color.

Great quality, wonderful design; fabulous feel on the foot. I have four of them; 2 runners, the small one for the foyer and the 4x6 in front of the Martin Console.

Rated 4 out of 5 by homedecko Great look and feel
Love that it looks like a real rug but has the durability of a indoor/outdoor rug. Do be careful to read care instruction. Vacuum without the beater bar on use the hard floor setting otherwise you will snag the rug. I got the red and the color was not a true red but i love it.

These rugs have a nice feel. I am using them in a Jack and Jill bathroom in a vacation house. They blend well with the tile and fit perfectly in front of each individual sink and by he tub/shower.

It has good texture, colors and design. It's in front of an outside door where it gets much traffic. I'm pleased that it doesn't show much dirt and vaccums/shakes out easily.

by OhioGranny Sheds a lot
The rug is nice and soft underfoot. The color is not at all as pictured. I ordered the dark brown. The picture looked like almost a taupe with cream and white checks. Actually the brown is more like the color of dark sisal and the white is very yellowish. I have had the rug down for a week and it sheds a lot. I keep picking up big balls of grey fuzz. I am going to try to vacuum it today to suck up some of that stuff as it makes the floor look dirty around it. I am disappointed in the color but it is very comfortable to stand on. The rug came very quickly. I ordered it on Saturday and it came the following Tuesday.
