Rated 5 out of 5 by Brandy beautiful lamps!
Lamps are beautiful. They are a very light camel tone. The shades are quite large so I might switch them out for something a little less imposing. These are lamps that could fit a multitude of styles and rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by art2 Stylish, good value
I really like the style of this lamp, it has the new over sized look that is popular now without being too powerful. It was a very good value for the price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pkycheep You will love these lamps!
I was hesitant to spend this amount of money on lamps I had not seen up close, but the Ballard representative assured me that I could return them at Ballard's expense if I didn't like them. These arrived quickly and were well-packaged. I absolutely LOVE these lamps! I got them in the camel color, which goes nicely against my caramel-colored walls. The lamps are "there" and definitely have a presence, but are not the first thing you notice in the room which is perfect. I ordered the oatmeal linen Couture drum shades which contrast nicely with the lamp base (the white shades were too stark for my room). These lamps are nicer and more expensive-looking than anything I found in high-end furniture stores. Couldn't be happier.

We've looked for Living Room lighting for about 5 years and finally happened upon these. I am so glad we did. Excellent workmanship, adequate weight, the height is perfect for reading, plus they accommodate a three way bulb.

I bought a pair of lamps in gray-green to flank my sofa. Great quality & simple design. Includes two harps for different shades heights.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nudel You get what you pay for
From the very positive reviews, I thought that this lamp would be just the thing for my family room. I am sorry to say that it is very mediocre, and if it wasn't such a hassle I would send it back. The proportions don't work particularly well...the base looks anemic under the very large shade, which looks yellow, not white when the lamp is on. I ordered the grey green, which looks more grey than green. It's not the ugliest lamp I have ever seen. It's just rather ungainly and the colors are bad. Oh well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveOnlineBallard Elegant and timeless
Recently purchased two of the Suzanne Kasler Large Gourd Lamps in the Carmel color. Love them. They are simple yet elegant and a style that never seems to go out of fashion. They go beautifully with my earthtone, traditional furnishings, but would also be nice with other different styles, such as contemporary and eclectic. They were delivered in quick order and although the shades arrived with some damage, Ballard Designs promptly remedied the problem by sending out replacement shades. It has been a pleasure to be the recipeint of excellent customer service. Thank you Ballard Designs.

I bought this lamp on sale and am so happy with it. The blue is soft and pretty. It works great with our clean, transitional style.

Bought this lamp in the gray-green color. I am extremely happy with the quality and weight of the lamp. The only small problem is that the shade sits a bit crooked on the harp and needed a washer to balance it a bit better. Small problem that was easily taken care of. I would definitely recommend this lamp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesHighQuality Beautiful Addition
I had been looking for lamps for our newly remodeled family room. I saw these lamps in Ballard a few months back and kept them in the back of my mind as I looked around. I am the type of person that won't buy something until I have explored all of my options. I looked at a lot of lamps in stores and in catalogs and couldn't find anything I liked. I kept coming back to these lamps. When they went on sale it was like someone said, "time to buy." The lamps arrived in a short time, in perfect condition. They look great in the room and are exactly as I expected. I may change out the shades in the future, but for now I am happy with my purchase.

I purchased two of the white large lamps to go in a guest room and they are beautiful! They look great with the Suzanne Kasler geometric duvet cover and they are of excellent quality. I purchased them on sale and I was thrilled with the price and I am considering purchasing two more - just need to figure out where I can put them.

Loved the lamps. I ordered 2 lamps but was mistakenly shipped 2 sets of 2 but liked them so much I decided to keep the 2nd set for another room rather than return them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GrandMaD Excellent value for the price
The grey/green base color is exactly what I was looking for and the shade truly compliments the lamp. The base is a bit large in diameter and does not go well with narrow tables. The addition of two different sizes of harp was so appreciated now that we have some many different sized light bulbs. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
I have purchased the smaller gourd lamp as well and it is perfect for bedrooms or smaller areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AltGirlTX Extremely Satisfied
I had been searching for a lamp with this shape and color for a while, and I am very pleased with this purchase. The color is a bit lighter than on the website, but it is still a lovely color. The finish has so far resisted any chips, scratches, or cracks (although I have no children or anyone to be rough with it). I replaced the shade it came with with a tapered linen burlap shade from Ballard, and that adds a nice medium brown complementary color to the blue. Overall, I'd purchase this again or another one for a different room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by She791 Great lamp for any room!
This lamp looks elegant in my living room in cream,
but I am planning to get another in French blue for my
study. Its simple, classic lines makes it both up-to-date
and traditional. You can position the shade at two different
levels, depending on what kind of light bulb you want.
I have my lamp on a mirrored table where it harmonizes
with the table without being too glitzy. Great lamp!

I bought two of the large size lamps for my end tables in my living room and they are perfect! I purchased the gray green and they are very true to the color pictured and beautiful! I was impressed with the quality and liked the fact that they accommodate a three-way bulb. They were packaged excellently and came in perfect condition! I couldn't be more pleased with the purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Checkers Nice style, but not great quality
The lamps have lovely styling and the color is perfect for the guest bedroom that they were purchased for.
However, upon closer examination, you can see drips in the glaze, so that tells me that the quality is a little lacking.
Also, the CFL's that were included may be nice gesture for some, but I would never purchase them due to the mercury hazard if broken. Now I need to figure out how to get rid of them.

by bvbinsrh We love it - now.
We purchased the Gourd lamp in Mink. The color and shape of the lamp looks great in the living room and overall we are very pleased with our purchase. The only problem was with the light bulb. When you turned it on it went from medium to low to high. Bought a new 3 way bulb and it worked perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lfalgi Nice lamps but one problem
I ordered 2 of the small size lamps. The packaging was very good and assembly was quite easy. After assebling them, I went to install the CFL bulbs that came with the lamps and found it was impossible to install them without removing the harp, which was a bit of a surprise. After plugging them in, I discovered the sockets were 3-way, but the included bulbs were single wattage. That wasn't a problem until my wife wanted 3-way bulbs in both lamps. After removing the harps again to replace the bulbs, I found that the 3-way bulbs were too big for the harps to be reinstalled. In other words, the bulbs were taller than the harp. After finding a taller harp, I discovered why they used such a short harp. The shade was raised just enough to look out of proportion with the lamp. I will try to find a 3-way CFL bulb that will fit the original harps, if there is such a thing.

by skicounselor Love this lamp!
I love, love my new gourd lamp! It is fun, yet sophisticated and looks very expensive. I ordered the large size and it's perfect in our newly renovated family room. The cream color is a true soft cream and the shade is a soft white. There is a contrast between shade and base, which makes the lamp look all the more lovely. Also it has a 3 way switch which I love for setting various moods. If you're debating getting this lamp, go for it. I don't usually spend this much on a lamp, but this one is well worth it!

I purchased the SK large gourd lamp in the light blue. The lamp arrived in perfect condition and the color is exactly what I expected. It matches my sofa perfectly. I have the lamp on a table next to the sofa.
I am so happy with this lamp, I am thinking of getting 2 small lamps for a guest bedroom!

I purchases a set in large (green) for our main living area. THe green is actually a grayish-green but goes well on either side of our cream sofa with sage colored walls. Others have commented on the size, but they are no larger than the lamps I replaced. I also got a smaller pair in french blue (again a greyish blue) for a bedroom and they are also a nice size for a smaller room. They definitely add style! Be sure to pull out the light bulb which is enclosed in the styrofoam packing. It is easy to overlook.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jannygirl Good buy for the money
I love the shape and size of this lamp. The shade is beautiful as well. However, the switch to turn the lamp on and off is poor quality. I bought the ivory color but it really is more gray than ivory. All in all - it's still a good buy for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happywithballard Lamps are fun, fresh and great update to living room.
We purchased two large cream gourd lamps to flank our living room sofa. They are BIG, but in a good way. We love them! They each have a few small imperfections in the ceramic, but not significant enough to return. They came packaged well and are easy to assemble. Each lamp comes with a light bulb, which it did not state on the box or instructions, so be sure to look in the styrofoam because I almost threw them away. So glad we purchased these lamps. They give our living room a fresh and fun vibe.

I ordered two of these lamps in french blue and I absolutely love them. I have them placed on either side of a large sofa (94") and they are just the right scale. I am sure that they would also look well with other sofa sizes. The style, color and shape are wonderful. If you are searching for a beautiful lamp at a fair value, I would definitely recommend this one.
