I love these buffet lamps. I have been looking at them for a long time. I finally decided I had to have them. It was a good decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarloH The perfect buffet lamp
I couldn't ask for more - its a classic that goes perfectly with my decor. The option to chose shades is terrific. I'm wondering if I should have ordered two. The only strange thing was the base and the shade came in two separate packages on different days. Other than that, I'm very happy with this purchase. Ballard Designs hasn't disappointed me yet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SW12 Love the shade options...
We were looking for candlestick lamps to add some lighting to our dark dining room. I was struggling to find a true candlestick lamp, and for what i found this was lower or similar in price than even the discount retailers. My only complaint is one of the lamps is crooked, which you might not notice on it's own, but i have 2. I love the fact that you can choose from so many shade options.

This lamp is a classic design that fit just right on our tall sideboard. A neat, simple and classic design.

I bought 2 of these to put on each side of my server, with a very large pendulum clock in the center. These lamps are beautiful and I couldnt be happier with this purchase. Thank you Ballard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllAboutMyHome Excellent choice
I ordered a pair of the Maria Buffet Lamps and am so impressed with the quality and impact they have on my console.
After I set them up with my usual large floral arrangement, my husband returned home. He immediately noticed the change and remarked how elegant the console and accessories looked with the addition of the lamps. Now, that's an endorsement!

This is a beautiful lamp but, unfortunately, I had to return the 2 I purchased because they were to tall for the spot where I needed them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeachBacci Great height
These lamps came today and I am very happy!! The height-which is hard to find buffet lamps this tall and quality of lamp and shade are excellent! Chose the cheetah shade and they are classy with a pop of style! Looked many places for buffet lamps this tall and could not find anything under $300 a piece. A bulb was also included which I found very accommodating of Ballards. I have been looking for a long time-this was worth waiting it out. Clean lines, slim and better than the picture on line. I never post comments on products but these are so great I wanted to give them high recommendations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amygirl Very nice and reasonably weighted lamp.
If you are looking for a tall statuesque buffet lamp, I found this one to be the best looking and price in its class. I couldn't find anything nicer in the DC stores or on the internet unless I was willing to pay at least $325 per lamp. The silver is a painted, matte antique finish which is understated. The blue silk shades are lovely and their bell shape is very pleasing. Together they look far more expensive than their price. Again, Ballards achieves a lovely product at a reasonable cost. Yeah Ballards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Princess16 classic touch
My Maria Buffett Lamps are just the right touch in my elegant but casually used living room. They pair beautifully across the room on our simple buffet table at the windows. their height slim size sit so beautifully against the sheer linen window coverings. The rubbed brass is a timeless classic for my country club cape cod home built in 1938 nestled right in the city. I couldn't find anything as nice and the price was better than others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jannygirl Exactly as described
I purchased a pair of the bronze buffet lamps. They are lovely. Perfect height. They arrived in a timely manner and had excellent protective packaging. That said, the switch on one lamp was bent and the nob off. I think this happened prior to or during packaging -- my husband was able to fix the switch. The color of the cream linen shades is much darker than shown online however the color fits in. This color difference + the broken switch are why I gave the 4 star rating. I would recommend these lamps to anyone in need of tall buffet lamps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by refreshingdecor I love these lamps.
The accessories in our living room were too small and didn't make the right statement. The height provided by these lamps was just the right touch.

I bought a pair for my entry way and they are perfect. They are really tall but look very elegant and are sturdy and of great quality. I bought the antique silver with gray shades and it's a true gray. I love these lamps and am thinking of buying two more for my dining room.

It was so difficult to locate tall buffet lamps. What a find in Ballard Design's catalog. I'm using them in my entry and they are perfect which netted a 5 rating. They flank a beautifully carved mirror. The black base and burlap shades work well to change up a rather formal entry. Right now I'm using tall stalks of dried hydrangea in an interesting urn between the lamps. The total look is very chic. (At least I think so!)

Unfortunately they were just too tall for my buffet and I had to return. Had my buffet been shorter it might have worked. I ordered bronze they look black. l and would have prefered a warmer dark brass tone. They were well packaged and arrived in excellent condition.

The Maria buffet lamps look spectacular on the console piece in our living room. They frame the picture above the console and give the added light to both the art work and our room. I ordered the bronze finish with the white silk shade. The lamps arrived in perfect condition. When I bought the lamps, they were on sale and came with the lamp shade and light bulb. ( I chose to use the highest wattage mandated on the instructions to have better lighting - used the light bulbs that came with the lamp as bedside lights.) If I had another place for lamps, I would buy more even if they weren't on sale. That is how much I like the Maria buffet lamps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Midwestshopper Perfect height
I have two buffet lamps on either side of a chest in my foyer. The lamps are very tall and the height gives it the dramatic effect I was hoping for. I like that I can order lampshades in different shades; I have red for Christmas and gray for the remaining days of the year. One of the lampshades was bent and customer service sent me out a replacement that arrived in just days. Very pleased with the efficiency and friendliness of my customer service representative. I am a very satisfied customer.

I love these lamps. I never realized how dark my dining room was ill I turned them on! The slim line fits perfectly in the smaller space. I want to get a 2nd set for my work desk. I tried to upload a picture but it was too big for your site to accept.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoiseBabe This product lightens up a dark room
I purchased 2 of these buffet lamps to put on the fireplace mantle in our family room. This room is usually dark due to no direct light from the outside. These lamps and a light rug have really lightened up the room. I would definiitely recommend these lamps.

Lovely lamps. Great price. Used on glass console in small dining room of second home in Charleston, S.C. Near the beach, so I used seagrass shades. Living area also has seagrass chairs, etc. Other shades would change it all. Talia chandelier is also from Ballard. My only complaint: would have preferred screw on shades. Diffused soft light

Rated 5 out of 5 by RedecoratingBug Great Quality and Looks
I purchased two of these lamps for my buffet in oil rubbed bronze. I am very satisfied. They are sturdy, sleek, and classy without going overboard. The sale price was great ($79 each WITH shades). My only slightly negative comment is that the sea grass shades are a bit too short and expose some of the mechanism that holds the light bulb. Also, as they are sea grass, I needed to keep moving them around to make them look perfectly straight. I also bought two gold silk shades for changing things up once in awhile. They fit the lamps perfectly (i.e. long enough and I don't have to keep straightening them). The lamps came quickly and well-packaged. I definitely recommend this product.

The aged silver is a great finish and goes perfectly with my brushed nickel faucets. I have placed one at either end of the master bath vanity and the lighting is now perfect. I highly recommend these, particularly at this price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GoBucs Nice but tall
The lamp is nice and well made but too tall for my buffet that is already on the tall side. I wish it was 3-4 inches shorter. It just looked odd to me. I returned it and chose another Ballard lamp. The seagrass shades are a perfect touch for anyone interested!

Rated 5 out of 5 by judhay Wonderful lamp, great value
I bought two of these lamps for a 9-foot-long wall unit with bookcase top. The lamp base is narrow enough for the cabinet top, and the shades snug into the space between two bookcase shelves. Perfect fit, and beautiful as well. (I chose oil-rubbed bronze with copper silk shades.) The lamps have a substantial feel, not flimsy at all. One reviewer regretted that they hold only 40W bulbs. They COME with 40W bulbs (a bonus) but they are rated for 60W. I'm happy as a clam.
