Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely tablecloth! Tablecloth is lovely. The ivory color I ordered is not what I picture ivory to be, but it’s lovely just the same. The color is a creamier yellow than ivory, but it works perfectly for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Great Experience The fringed natural burlap tablecloth is fantastic - a great value for the price! Everything about this tablecloth exceeded my expectations. The actual color is just as pictured, and it is well made. If you are considering it, go ahead and buy it; you won't be disappointed. Aside from the tablecloth itself, the Ballard Designs customer service is top notch. This was my first purchase from Ballard Designs, but it won't be my last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations This is not your ordinary table covering! The burlap fabric is exceptional in its quality and it is lined as well. I purchased this covering to coordinate with black buffalo plaid curtains and the cream color is an exact match to the cream color in the curtains. The fringe adds an elegant yet playful element to the tablecloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this tablecloth! I have it in the corner of my living room with photos on it. The ivory burlap adds texture to the room. The wrinkles came out easily using a warm iron to the back of the fabric. I don't know if I am imagining it but it seems to get more beautiful with age.
