Rated 5 out of 5 by PattyJ2 Lampshade is perfect. Love the script pattern.
I ordered the script pattern. It really compliments the pewter lamp it "adorns" and the brown leather chair it sits next to. The only issue I had was with the packing. The shade had several "dents" in it when it arrived. They did pop right out. There was not alot of protective packing around the lampshade when it was shipped.

I am so impressed with these lamp shades. They are even better in person than in the magazine. Not disappointed in them at all. May even order another one

I've purchased other lampshades in the past for my 2 buffet table lamps and was never quite satisfied until I found the Couture Drum table lamp shade with the cork finish. I love the look! A perfec finish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by YankeeGirl64 Perfect top to the Cattail Lamp
I ordered this lamp shade to go on the Cattail lamp which is gorgeous by the way. It keeps with the natural look of the lamp and is beautiful. It came well packed and was wonderfully made. I would recommend it highly to anyone going with an earthy or natural look.

This is a very stylish and attractive shade which is perfect to update your decor. Be aware your lighting will be darker if you are replacing a white or cream shade.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shaded Poor quality
I bought 2 burlap shades; 16" and 18". They both arrived with visable dents in the sides although the box they came in was in good shape. Both are very flimsy and cheaply made. Everytime the lamp is turned on, the shade becomes askew. I also ordered a Couture Tapered Drum shade in burlap which is a much better quality and better looking shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunflowers Seagrass drum lampshades
I am very satisfied with my Ballard Design's seagrass lampshade's. They are made very well. I did not expect them to be lined. I love the way the light shines through the weave of the seagrass. The drum shape makes my lamps look more modern. Very beautiful!!! They were also packed very well. Thank you Ballard Design's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AmyNYC Accurate color and shape, wish it was a little better made
They're OK, they do the trick. They're for our weekend house so I'm not as particular as if they were for our regular apartment.
The main complaint is that the circumference of the top of the shade is the same as the bottom, whereas most shades have a slightly smaller circumference at the top. This is because without making this adjustment, the optical allusion is that the top is slightly wider than the bottom. And that is the main problem with these shades.
Also, the burlap is a wide weave, which is OK, it's just that you can't tell that from the photo. The construction is fine, but it's not a top quality shade if that's what you're looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Socalgirl These shades have updated my old lamps so nicely. I'm very happy with the way they look.
I wanted to inexpensively update my old lamps and I ordered these shades in "Document". They certainly made my old lamps look good and they look good in the room too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Updateroom I like the script design on the lampshades.
The lampshades lack knotched metal bars that hold the shade in position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppersDiva Document Brown Shade
This is a beautiful shade! I have been looking for about two years for the perfect color/print for my bedroom and this shade compliments my color scheme perfectly. The shade is a beige color and the print is dark brown in another language (French I think) which adds to the uniquness of it. I ordered the 14x10 for my dresser lamp and the 8x8 for my nightstand lamp...both fit perfectly! Very happy with my purchase.

Loved the shade fabric and size. If the color was less brown would have kept it. Wish the internet photo was more accurate.

I was very skeptic about ordering a lamp shade. Never could really come up with the same size I had. I totally went off the map when I ordered this shade....size and fabric. But when I received it...loved it. Everyone that has cme into my family room has said, "wow"...what a neat lamp shade.

This drum lampshade added the perfect accent to my bedroom. It arrived within a few days and completed the look I was striving for. The price was reasonable and the shades were very well crafted. I would highly recommend the drum lampshade to anyone.

Great shades. They really spruce up the guest room. Bought two and they look amazing, especially when the lamps are one because light sneaks out in unexpected places. Love them!

I selected the shade in Black silk for the color, I had not expected the soft neutral interior liner to provide such gracious filtered light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reinvented All about neutral, natural textures
The large shades top off my inexpensive tripod wood lamps and added finial, making the look totally upscale, funky and unique. The cork complements the dark-chocolate-milk brown walls and light neutral sofas and area rug of my den. The shades are beautifully crafted, lined and edged in the same color as the cork, making them worth every penny. I am totally satisfied with this purchase, and I'm hard to please.
