Le Poeme Indoor/Outdoor Rug is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product I ordered this rug for my kitchen over hardwood floors. it is very durable, doesn't show spills and feels nice under bare feet. It is all I expected and more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty and practical I'm very pleased - bought the smallest size of this rug for a tiny half-bath, which is visible from the living room and front door. Perfect because the print and colors are sedate but not boring, and it's washable! Also, it's flat enough that the door can open above it without wrinkling it (it flattened out after being rolled up, within 2 weeks).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Le Poeme rug - BEAUTIFUL I love love LOVE this rug! It is just beautiful and brings together the black leather sofa with the corduroy beige chairs. It is kind to the touch. I am a little concerned about a few fibers that are sticking up after the first vacuum. More to come, but overall, tremendously satisfied! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right I received my rug today (I have BD rugs all over my house) and already love it. I ordered the Spa color hoping it was more aqua than green and it certainly was. Like others have said, the background is a combination beige/tan but I happen to really like that because it will be more forgiving with dirt and debris. I have no idea if it is going to wear well because it won't be in a high traffic area but I absolutely love this rug and will probably order another one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! We put our rug in the entry way and it makes me happy every time I walk in the door. It is thick, well made and doesn't show any dirt, which is great for an entry. I wish I could put one in every room, in every color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute rug Used the small version of this rug in a guest bathroom. Looks and feels great. Ordered it in "chocolate" and it's really more of a golden brown than deep chocolate brown Think it will wear well!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features! Simply Gorgeous Carpet. Such a unique design. I purchased one for my foyer and a runner to match which goes to the back of my house and they look beautiful. I bought the spa color which also matches a lot of ballards fabrics that I had different pieces of furniture made. No need for a mat underneath this carpet. It is thick enough and it does not slide on my hardwood floor. A really, really wonderful find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully made rugs. I bought three of these rugs and was very happy with them when they arrived. I am using them in a large open area in my house which serves as a living room, family room and dining room. They are made very well, look beautiful on my hardwood floors and should hold up for years with my little dog and frequent visits from my 10 grandchildren.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vive La France I love the new rug. The background color is a beige and brown combination, which I am fine with. This is good to know if people think they are getting a rug with an off white or beige background. I was picturing a crewel style weave to the rug, but it is clearly more of a loop berber style. I have seen this rug only in one other magazine for a higher cost, so I am very happy that I got mine from Ballard Designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rug, great value! I LOVE this rug. I have only had it down for a couple weeks and the edges are flat and the chemically "new rug" smell (which has been true for almost any rug I've ever purchased, not unique to this one) is gone. The rug is basic and neutral enough to not compete with the stylized chairs in the room, yet it's still a very interesting piece. It was very hard to find a rug in such a large size (9x12) that wasn't too plain. It feels soft underfoot and I never would have guessed that it is an indoor/outdoor rug, but I love that it will clean up easily since it's home will double as a playroom one day. I own the light brown color and I agree that the background is a mix of oatmeal and light beige colors but I think this adds depth and keeps the print from standing out so much that it distracts you from the rest of the decor. I just can't say enough about this rug - I looked for a long time online and nothing came close in terms of style and value. Thank you Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rug! I ordered this for my foyer and it looks great. Very neutral, but because it is indoor/outdoor it cleans up very nicely. I was afraid that because it was indoor/outdoor it would be scratchy to my feet, but it is very soft. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Correction I love the two rugs we purchased. The description is in error, small point. The poem is about an Ant an a Grasshopper, not a Cricket. Writers should research details because it does allow the owner to attach a story to the item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This rug completes my room I love the way my new Le Poeme rug completes my room. I have a red sofa and a black and white chair in my sunroom and this rug pulled everything together. It is a great rug, I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this rug! I purchased 3 of these rugs to put near entrances, and 1 in my black and white kitchen. It is the perfect mix of contemporary/traditional..bold and strong. It has a very contemporary feel and is a great quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colors and very chic! I ordered the small rug for under a coffee table and the large (6X9) size for under my dining table. I LOVE both rugs. The pile is plush, I haven't had any problem with piling, and the colors are very vibrant. It gives both rooms a very cosmopolitan feel, but also very cozy and kind of french chic. I am very pleased with the rugs and would definitely recommend them to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and Durable Rug We bought this rug for our entry way, knowing it would get a lot of traffic from both 2 legged visitors and our 4 legged family members. It arrived and looks absolutely fabulous and is surprisingly soft for how durable it appears to be. We have had to treat a spot since getting it, and it came out easy and left no residule mark. We just love this rug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice soft rug for kitchen area I was looking for a new area rug for my kitchen that was soft underfoot and easy to clean. This rug is a nice thickness and a very nice quality. The poem is quite a conversation piece as people often ask what it says. I've decided I need to print the poem so I will have it handy when the question comes up. I highly recommend this rug for an area that needs a soft touch but gets heavy use.
