These were a great addition to our dining room chandelier. They look great with the light on or off and add a modern touch to our traditional fixture.

After searching and searching...this is exactly what I was looking for. I ordered these in black. When the light shines through, you can really see the linen! They helped to make my builder grade chandelier look modern and elegant! Perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Day1 Expensive, but worth the money.
The Linen Drum Chandelier Shades are gorgeous! The only problem that I am having is trying to find the right Chandelier Light Bulb to accommodate the prongs on the shade. Without the right light bulbs, the shades do not stay on properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smitty1 the shade helped me modernize my existing fixture
I had a shade previously from ballard but wanted a more transitional look. The size of the drum shade is perfect. The quality is great. The hem is stiched correctly giving me great quality at this price point. I hope Ballard offers more colors in the future. I would like to change up with a mustard shade. I highly recommend this shade. It changed the look of my dining room and gave the chandelier new life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jean1fnp These shades are awesome!
I have an old fashioned brass chandelier from the 1960s in my home. I wanted to update it, so have been thinking of getting drum shades for awhile now, and have nearly bought them from Ballard but always changed my mind, thinking they would not look right. I read the reviews, and saw some photos and was sold! I ordered them, they came right away and they have literally transformed my tired old fashioned light fixture and make the dining room look great. I did not realize these shades were so large, much larger than traditional shades, but they make the light fixture look much larger. Thanks for such an awesome, well made product.

I was looking for a way to update this chandelier and these shades fit the bill. The color is just right and the silhouette works with both the contemporary table...and the cat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ypsishopper Nice shades, but shipping problems
Two out of the three shades I ordered came crushed. Good news is that Ballard Designs sent out replacements immediately, with no hassles. Thanks. They look great on my chandelier and allow more light, as they are wider than my last set.

I uploaded a before and after picture. i hesitated on getting these originally because someone described them as "modern" and i was worried about the size. I'm really glad i got them. they transformed not only the dining room, but the entire house. so funny how something so little can change so much.

I ordered these drum shades in red for my wall sconces. I am thrilled with the color and design. They accent our room just as I had hoped. They are sturdy and well made and dressy at the same time! I would certainly buy them again. I also love the color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoneRenov8 These were the perfect choice to transition my decor
The more contemporary looking shades transitioned a traditional pot rack lighting fixture to the more contemporary look we embraced with recent renovations. The shades met our expectations from what was pictured in the catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Betharina Total transformation!
I originally bought these shades for my kitchen chandelier which has five arms but luckily I had the foresight to buy an extra shade just in case I wanted to change them out with the dining room chandelier which has six arms. I'm so glad I did because the shades looked too wide on the kitchen chandelier. They are now on the dining room chandelier replacing old glass globes. They look remarkable! It's my new, and updated light fixture! These little shades made all the difference. Looks wonderful on a dimmer too. I would recommend these in a heartbeat but just check out your measurements first to be on the safe side. You could use some inexpensive poster board and make a template if you're feeling industrious.
It would be great if they came in other colors and fabrics.
