Never Again will I purchase from Ballards

by lauraruby2, July 22, 2013
Will never purchase from Ballard's again.  I ordered an $800.00 bed swing from them in May.  After having paid a carpenter to install braces to install it, one of the four hooks on the swing gave way. Hook would not come out or stay in.  The swing was no longer offered after having been in the catalogue for less than two months.  I asked if this was because of a faulty part.  Woman I spoke with said sales weren't as expected so they would offer swing again next spring.  Go figure.  Representative said they would pick up and give full refund.  Have had to call four times.  Much confusion on their part.  The last time rep connected me with shipping company who said it would be picked up the following Monday and they would call with a window.  No call.  Staff seems incompetent, unprofessional and dishonest.  I have waited over a month for them to pick up the defective swing and will then have to wait another several weeks to be credited.  Never again.

As of August 7, my account still has not been credited.

I have purchased a few items from Ballard Designs over the last 3-4 years, but for the first time ordered a custom item just this past September --  2 chairs with custom fabric.   I received one of the two chairs around the 3rd week of November   Read full review...

awful

by theclowns, December 21, 2011
I ordered a hollis chair in November, with a ship date of Dec. 19th, okay I would have the item for christmas. Never heard a thing emailed cs, they said now it's being shipped Jan 2012. Real nice, first they don't tell me this and then I have to wait 2 months. customer service sucks

Not a top quality company

by zazu22, November 19, 2011
I'm sad to say that my buying days at Ballard are over. I've bought several things from them over the years, and each item ultimately had problems. I bought a coat rack umbrella stand that ultimately leans to one side. I got no satisfaction from customer service. I bought a copper boot tray that rusts (says it's rust "resistant") it is a boot rack and should withstand a little water. No such luck. I also bought a media cabinet. Had to send the first one back and the second one is even worse. The front door is warped and, again, customer service is of no use. It's sad as they have fabulous merchandise. It's a shame they don't care about the customer.

terrible experience. do not use this company.

by sammysavoy, March 7, 2011
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.
I returned a wall hanging that did not fit and the company tried to charge me more money to return ship it than they did to ship it to me in the same fashion (UPS). Then they would only refund roughly a third of the price I paid for the actual product. Communicating with their customer service department is completely frustrating - I feel bad for their reps who clearly can only say "I'm sorry" and don't even understand their own return policy.

I think Ballard Design has POOR quality control.

by before52, May 27, 2010
I recently ordered an upholstered bed (Camden) from Ballard Designs and have been very disappointed in the delivery service.  The bed arrived one day later than was originally promised and without bed rails.  Customer service promised a quick response to solving my problem and over a week went by before I heard from Ballard and that was because I contacted them.  It has been almost ten days and I still do not have my rails.  Ballard refuses to take back the item because it is upholstered and their customer service is DISMAL!

I finally broke down and bought an Overdoor plaque with our initial on it.  I have looked at this for years and finally decided that it was time to break down and buy it.  I thought it was a good value at $129, plus $20 or $25 (don't remember)   Read full review...

Poorly made products

by flyinghill, September 5, 2009
Delivery speed-excellent.  Quality of products-poor  
The tray table I bought tips over easily and the black finish comes off easily on the edges (came that way in the box and got worse)   The quilt is stiff and looks like polyester, very unlikely 100% cotton as stated. Cheap and uncomfortable.

I was pleased that my order arrived ahead of schedule.

by daphnebg, June 25, 2009
I was pleased that my order arrived ahead of schedule. I ordered an area rug. It was just as nice as the picture in the catalog. I am very happy with the rug. I may order a matching smaller one.

They are a good product for a good price.

by estherwc, June 24, 2009
I've just bought a new rug from Ballards. I love the round shape, the print and the green color.  I have two of these on the floor of my wraparound front porch, and I get so many compliments on them.  They are already beginning to fade, but they are in bright light.  I hope they hold their color at an acceptable level for several years - we'll see.  They are a good product for a good price.

Initial shipment arrived damaged, however, it was replaced immediately without having to return the damaged one.  I receive many compliments on this doormat as well as the stair treds that I also purchased.

Ballard rugs are beautiful and very nice quality.

by louiseibt, June 21, 2009
Ballard rugs are beautiful and  very nice quality. I'd admired this rug from the catalog for over a year and once it went on sale, that cinched the purchase for me! It also fits perfectly in my space. It arrived earlier than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise, too! I would definitely order other items from Ballard Designs in the future. I'm a satisfied customer.

I know I can count on their products for their quality and appeal.

by thejulia, June 19, 2009
I bought two identical rugs for my son and daughter-in-law.  One was a runner for use in the kitchen in front of the sink and the other for use at the entrance to the house from the garage.  Both are high traffic areas as they have four children between the ages of 10 and 4 years old.  I wanted a design to reflect the artistic bent of my daughter-in-law who likes color and shapes like spirals, diamond shapes, heart shapes, etc.  The particular design I chose is the Turin rug with diamond pattern in the color of sage.  It is perfect for the areas I mentioned and so far they are holding up extremely well given the strategic locations of lots of traffic.  My daughter-in-law loves them (as does my son, but being the mother-in-law, I try harder to please her).    I know I can count on their products for their quality and appeal.

The rug I've ordered has exceptional quality for the price.

by marianop, June 19, 2009
The rug I've ordered has  exceptional quality for the price.  It came on time and I was using it within 15 minutes. It's soft and luxurious for a sisal and no rug pad to deal with.  I will probably order another one for my living room.  It's texture goes with any decor. Thanks to Ballard!!!

Not impressed with rug ordered.

by luiu, June 19, 2009
We just received the braided jute rug from Ballard Designs and were disappointed by the fringed edges; they're long and nasty, not neat and tidy looking like in the picture. We may have to cut the fringed edges off but are concerned about ruining the rug. May not order from Ballard Designs again. Not impressed.

Excellent Quality

by betlabrinth, June 18, 2009
All of the rugs I have ordered from Ballard Designs are of excellent quality and easy to keep clean.  I normally purchase runners for my kitchen area and they add a nice touch to my kitchen decor.  We live at the beach so we need rugs that stand up to sand and water being brought into the house.

I am never disappointed!

by mercedestar, June 18, 2009
The rug we ordered from Ballard Designs is absolutely fabulous!  I hesitated for just a moment with the animal print, but it is great!  It really lends itself to just about any decorating theme and I get compliments all the time on it.  I use their catalog consistently for decorating ideas and I am never disappointed!

Good value for the price.

by wedersonmol, June 16, 2009
I've ordered a rug from Ballard Designs. It's a very nice rug- it served the exact purpose I needed of adding texture without adding an additional design element for a room in transition. Good value for the price. It's helpful that the back is rubber so no rug pad is needed as I have it under my kitchen table and it needs to be moved for cleaning regularly. Some complaints about walking on the hard texture with bare feet from my kids. I am very happy with this purchase.

The rug that I received is great.

by emilydor, June 16, 2009
The rug that I received is great.  What I liked about it best was the price, I believe it was half off the original price.  I had shopped around at local stores and couldn't find anything comparable in that price range.

I love how this rug looks in my newly decorated living room.

by wallace_a, June 16, 2009
I love how this rug looks in my newly decorated living room. I have a tan sofa and blue walls so the rug pulls it all together. I am a bargain shopper so I checked several stores & websites before purchasing a rug. I kept coming back to this one and finally purchased it, so glad I did. I have received comliments from everyone who has come through my front door recently.

I give this product the highest rating.

by britneo, May 4, 2009
I love the stylish look of the 3 Zebra rugs I bought from Ballard Designs! I use them in our MBR suite in the bathroom. Since they are washable they work wonderfully well near the tub and shower. All I do is take them to our patio and wash them with the hose and a mild solution of soap. The sun dries them out in no time and they are much more sanitary than a large area rug in the bath. I give this product the highest rating.

This is the second Ballards rug I have ordered for my patio

by lizdean, May 4, 2009
This is the second Ballards rug I have ordered for my patio. I ordered one two years ago and it has taken a lot of abuse, dogs and weather in the south, plus pollen, mildew etc. Before I put my new rug out, I took the hose and washed the old one good, it looked like new. So I am holding both, one to put down for company and one for everyday traffic (dogs, kids, etc). They both still look great, and are very easy to handle. I love them and intend to order another one, smaller size, soon for my foyer. They look great indoor or outdoors. This is the best place and best price I have found to order, and I search the internet for deals. Hat's off to Ballards.

We are very happy with our purchase and with Ballard's customer service.

by pinkeyla, May 4, 2009
The rug is an indoor-outdoor rug but we chose to put in indoor under our kitchen table.  We specifically chose it because it was the exact color we have been looking for since we moved into our new home over two years ago!    I'm glad we held out.  We are very happy with our purchase and with Ballard's customer service.

This is not the first indoor/outdoor rug I have purchased form Ballard's.

by jennsencln, May 3, 2009
This is not the first indoor/outdoor rug I have purchased form Ballard's and it probably won't be the last. I use the carpets indoors over the hardwood floors. I have two pugs and they need to walk on carpet for better traction. I needed something that was both functional and stylish and Ballard's indoor/outdoor rugs are perfect! They are sturdy, easy to clean and soft enough to walk on with bare feet. The selection of style and color are impressive and sometimes makes it difficult to select a favorite. I've told several friends about Ballard's and they are as happy with their purchases as I am with mine.

I really like the design of the rugs

by goodwin23, May 2, 2009
I really like the design of the rugs (I purchased 3 rugs/3 different sizes). Really pleased with the look and how they fit into the design of the kitchen and breakfast area. Like that spills can easily be wiped up. There are areas on each of the rugs where the paint is wearing off or showing wear.

A unique find at a great value.

by natalymo, May 1, 2009
Trumpet ceiling lights i bought from Ballards are really interesting. I purchased them to replace the too small, outdated lights in my kitchen. They are much more substantial than they appear online, which will work well in my large kitchen space. These lights also can take up to a 150W bulb, which is fantastic for over work spaces. They have a whimsical feel and are of very nice quality. I especially like the vintage look of the fabric/rope cover on the wire. A unique find at a great value.

I love my outdoor rug

by carolie_b, April 30, 2009
I love my outdoor rug! It looks great and the quality is wonderful. I have it up stairs on my roof top deck, so it gets rained on,and alot of direct sun. I'm very close to the ocean so we get alot of dampness also. It still looks great! It gives my patio a finished designer look. As an interior Designer ( and sometimes Exterior) I would definitley recommend this rug and Ballard Designs.

Truly a beautiful rug.

by lynnndna, April 30, 2009
Truly a beautiful rug. While it was received damaged I decieded to take a credit and keep the rug, versus the inconvenience of return and re-ship. I get a lot of compliments on the rug. I have had it professionally cleaned and it maintains its loveliness. I will have this rug for a very, very long time as it is an exceptional piece in my home.
