Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich looking hues! We just did a big reno and created a beautiful wine room. We purchased the Piper in round and a 5 x 8. They look amazing on the santos mahogany floor and we have a 48" round espresso table on the round rug with 4 leather chairs. The Pier rugs really add a layer of understated richness of color! Love them! People can't believe what I paid for these as well as the Catherine rugs. They are all so beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice blend of colors We chose the 3 x 5 brown & peacock rug to put in front of our family room sofa. The shades of blue, tan & brown are very pretty. The rug is nice & heavy, so if you're putting it on top of carpeting, no need for a rug pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the wait I purchased a smaller version of this rug in teal for in front of my entry door and loved it so much that I ordered a larger version for my foyer. They both took a few months to arrive, but definitely worth the wait. This is my third rug purchase from Ballard, I bought the Lugano rug for my dining room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this rug (light olive) Was really worried when ordering because none of the other reviewers had posted a pic online and the sample I ordered didn't show me much. Got this for my living room and couldn't have been happier with another rug. It is beautiful. Does not shed. Thick and of good quality, feels nice to walk on. I've purchased two rugs from ballard designs and I love them both!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking classic rug I was apprehensive ordering the chocolate rug online. I was looking for a rug with brown, cream and leaf green to match my family room decor. The description says it has teal in it, and I was worried it would not look right. But I really love the rug. The teal is very muted and it matches beautifully to my colors without being overwhelming. A very nice classic looking rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this rug! I love this rug! I got the light Olive and it is beautiful and very well made. Great value for price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my entry I needed a rug for my entry- the wood is light, so the chocolate contrasts nicely and the muted hues are casual but classy. It is soft and has some spots that looked slightly snagged- but I think that is from my dogs when they bark at the front door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! I love this rug! it's even better in person. I got this for my foyer and it's beautiful. i would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the colors The location for this rug is in an area that is seen from several rooms. I was concerned about colors clashing, but don't like the look of rugs that have a washed out or faded look. This rug fit the bill nicely, just enough color and fairly neutral in appearence from a distance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful rug! Love the chocolate rug color and quality. It sheds a little though. Happy and satisfied with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely rug I'm a huge fan of Ballard Designs rugs, and this one is also great quality. I bought the light olive. To me, the color's a bit softer on the website than it is in reality; I see it as a fairly strong green/gold. I'd suggest getting a swatch before you order. The quality is awesome, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and soft I bought two matching rugs--one round and other rectangular. Love the look and the feel. BUT OMG do they shed. Hunks of fiber still sloughing off several months after purchase. Every time I vacuum I have to empty canister after each rug and it is packed with fibers. I certainly hope this diminishes over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful rug!! The rug is absolutely beautiful!! I am very happy with my purchase. However, the rug sheds a bit and my wood floors are dark, so you can see the “dust” the rug creates. I read about this in prior reviews so I was expecting the shedding. I still absolutely love it and am incredibly happy!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these rugs! I bought three of these for our combination kitchen/breakfast nook area but they would also look beautiful in a formal living room. They are of excellent quality. They do shed, but I suspect this will lessen in time with wear and vacuuming. The only reason I rated this 4 stars instead of 5 is I wish they made a smaller runner with a length of 5 to 6 feet for the area in front of my kitchen sink! I ended up getting the smallest size because it fits in the space, but it's much too small.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed The rug will not stop shedding and it is off square. I would love to return it.
