Rated 4 out of 5 by SuziQz High Quality Construction
Many shades are poorly constructed with crooked seams and flimsy fabrics so sheer you can see right through them. But Ballard shades are flawless. All of the seams are straight and the fabric is sturdy but still allows light to show through. I also appreciated the discount I received as I made my purchase when they were on sale. My only complaint is that there are only 5 color choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by domesticdiva A nice change and practical, too
Ten years ago, I bought these same chandelier shades in a deep red; they are still in perfect condition but I wanted to brighten my space so replaced them with white shades. The new shades are every bit as well made as the originals, allow much more light to filter through (can use the dimmer on the chandelier and save $$$$), and are just as fashionable as the red was ten years ago.

I ordered these shades in the copper color, which I love! They are nicely made and have a richness to their look. They really dress up the look in the room.

Bought 5 of these shades for our chandelier. They look beautiful. Fit perfectly just below the candle lights.
Softens the glare of the bulbs. Very nice ambiance.

I ordered the shades in black - the perfect color for the chandelier in my new home. I paired it with the Safari Brown chain sleeve. I have received many compliments. The products are beautiful and are very well made.

The black silk shades look absolutely stunning on our chandelier and wall scounces (which were also purchased from Ballard).

I am very happy with my Dupioni Silk Chandelier Shades!
They have just the right affect in softening the light from the chandelier bulbs, but still giving off enough light. I have hung my chandelier in our newly re-modeled kitchen and it is really lovely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TeaLady Just perfect!
I was concerned about how much light would come through the shades. They are not opaque. There is definitely some light you can see through the shades which lightens the actual color of the shade. So what you see online, not lit, will be lighter when lit. The silk is beautiful and definitely worth the extra $$. I had considered the linen a lot, but am really glad I got the silk for my minimally formal dining room.

These chandelier shades are beautifully made and look perfect on our Talia 6-arm chandelier. I considered several other choices but I'm glad I went with this one. They are "just right."

Rated 3 out of 5 by Golfinggal100 Not exactly what I was hoping for.
Although I like the shades, I was hoping they would be slightly larger and a deeper shade of apple green. I decided to keep them because they look okay.

I loved the "shades". They were the perfect gray color that I wanted. They were a bit short but still look okay. I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScorpioByTheSea Rich color and texture
I now own these Dupioni silk shades in red (for the Talia chandelier over the dining room table) and ivory (for the Talia chandelier over the kitchen table). These are reliable shades which add a dimension of charm, quality and sophistication to our decor. The red shades are a deep shade of red (almost burgundy) which mutes the light bulb creating a soft light. So plan to install a dimmer switch so that you can control how much light you desire. The ivory shades allow the light to come through more brilliantly which works well in the kitchen. All items arrived in perfect condition and in a timely manner.

This was way to small for what I needed. They are tiny. I had to return them. The quality was nice though.

Thank you, Ballard, as always for having top quality products. When we relocated to Las Vegas, bought, and set up our home, we relied on Ballards for so many pieces. When I need something new I continue to think first of Ballards and coincidentally the catalogue arrived just as we were looking for a way to dress up the chandelier in the dining room. Thank you thank you thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pgtim Chandelier shades help to make the lighting more subtle.
The chandelier shades, which are ivory, are very attractive, and well made.
I should have preferred them to be a bit larger, but they still add a touch of elegance.

I recently bought this shade in the gold color for my breakfast area. However, I so like the quality of these silk shades, that I also own other colors for my dining room chandelier. I change shades seasonally, and sometimes for holidays. The red is a beautiful true red (not orangey at all-), and the spa color is great for spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PetiteMaison Great shades!!!
Love my shades that go great with my sconces I bough here at Ballard Designs. Our little cottage didn't have an overhead light, only wall connectors. So, we decided to give it that regal, expensive look. And we accomplish it with the shades!! Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1savyshopper affordable class
I received the chandelier shades and as with all of the furnishings I have ordered in the past I have to say I was not one bit dissapointed. The workmanship, fabric and overall look is absolutely beautiful.. I put the shades on a chandelier I order from Ballard a couple of years ago and the fixture was transformed from a beautiful fixture to a magnificent one. Thank you Ballard for helping me decorate with style. I also ordered the chevron indoor outdoor rug. After receiving it I ordered two more in a different color. My entry way looks finished now and the compliments I get are an added bonus. I put two in the entry hall and a Black and beige in my den which is black, cream with touches of lime green. Every room in my home have touches of Ballard Designs. I could go on and on but we'll save that for a later date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JANHILL The shades look much richer than I expected
The material and color is just what I wanted. Neat and well constructed.
It makes my chandelier look even richer.
They may tip a little on the bulb once in a while, but
they are a great purchase.
