Rated 4 out of 5 by Smnuws Nice as a Bedside Table
I ordered the lamp in the beige color to be used on a bedside table. This is a large lamp, but for the table I have it on it works just fine. I like the soft, calming color. Nice addition to our guest bedroom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nut4decor Quality control issues
The small size is perfect bedside. The bases do have flaws: filler was obviously used in one spot and the other is not perfectly shaped as you can feel the unevenness. I am also having trouble getting the lamp brackets in evenly so that the shades stay straight, most annoying. Sadly, quality control seems to have become non-existent in products made in other countries. I have purchased many other wonderful things from Ballard Designs.

The soft color of the lamp works perfecty with the bedroom decor. The lampshade came with the lamp making it more affordable, however, I would have appreciated a choice for the shade than just white. White matches everything so I did not pay more to buy a preferred color.

Lamp is great but shade was damaged when it arrived. Ballard has great customer service and sent out a replacement with minimal hassle.

I purchased these because they remind me of some lamps my mother had when I was a child. The shape never goes out of style and the soft blue looks just beautiful in my bedroom!

Our light blue lamps are perfect in our family room. The lamps arrived in perfect condition with the proper three way bulbs- a plesent suprise. Another part of the shipment needed to be returned for an error on our part- Ballard customer service was wonderful and corrections made at no cost. Our first place to look for home furnishing. Thank you

Rated 2 out of 5 by Molly2 YUCK!!
I ordered 2 lamps the gray and the cream. The gray was awful and did not have any life to it. The cream is not really a cream it looked dull not a soft cream. The lamp appeared to be good quality but be careful of the colors.

I have been looking for lamps for about six months when I came across these. I bought the cream color so they can go with anything. They look beautiful in my living room. Best of all I got them on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by trailsends mink color looks more taupe
My lamp just arrived and the shade is nice but the color of the base doesn't look like the picture on line or in the catalog. Mink looks taupe, with not even a hint of orange or terra cotta. It will work but not what I expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CozyElegante Nice Blue Color - Horrible packaging
I bought this lamp to go on top of a Secretary desk in my home office. Nice size without being too small or large and provides a hint of color. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is the packaging. The styrofoam packaging was such a mess - it disintegrated and stuck to everything. It took 15 minutes to clean the room after taking the lamp out of the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anynamenottaken True to the product image.
I'm happy with the lamp which I purchased in camel. It looks just like the picture, fortunately. I'm especially pleased that it takes a 3-way bulb up to 150 watts. I like having the option of a low light and prefer 150w for reading over 100w, which is the maximum of most lamps.
I had to waste some of my time trying to find a harp that would work since the original is very bent. Ballard sent an additional harp with the order but it was not usable, too short. When I put the shade on, it covered a good part of the lamp base making it unattractive and off-balance visually. I bought another harp which didn't work either. Then I jimmy rigged the original by adding pieces of cardboard underneath 'til it looked straight. I shouldn't have had to spend my money time to correct it.
The lamp shade is off-white as pictured but turns light beige when the light is on. That's okay with me since it's off most of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smoke Nicely designed basic lamp.
The lamp arrived well packed and in perfect condition. It is nicely finished and has 3-way bulb capability. I was disappointed that it only measured 27 inches high as it was advertised at 29 inches high. Overall a great lamp.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DesignLover1 The "cream" lamp is white! Disappointed!!!
I ordered the cream color of this lamp for my daughter's room after searching extensively online for "just the right lamp" for the space. I deliberated extensively and considered lamps which were much pricier than this one. Ultimately, I thought the shape of this lamp was classic and simple and the lines clean; the cream color would be neutral so that if she changed other colors in her room in the future, it would still work.
I'm very disappointed that the "cream" color of the lamp base is not cream at all - it's white, with slight undertones of gray. The shade is cream and, I have to say, the two don't go together.
I would say the overall quality of the lamp is fair - you get what you pay for.
Very disappointed with the color and am considering returning the piece (despite the cost of the postage) just to prove the point.
What a shame.

The lamp base is very nice with a classic shape & good colors. However, the lamp shade is poor quality & has flaws...some bumps, snags, lines...instead of looking smooth & seamless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kathys4design Beautiful lamp with gorgeous surface
I purchased 2 of the ivory lamps. The base is beautiful with a flawless surface. Very nice weight and shape. The finials are a non-event, so I replaced them with something with more personality, but that is just my decorating choice. I like the neutral color since I change my decor in the room seasonally and don't want to have to worry about a certain color working in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by riedesign Lovely, perfect size, great color.
I just received my Suzanne Kasler Large Gourd Lamps in French Blue. The base is a beautiful ceramic and the color is quite nice since it has grey in it. Another reviewer said they were too large. I disagree, they are sophisticated and seem like they would cost much more then I paid for them. I couldn't be happier. I hope she enlarges her line at Ballard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by taraplum These lamps are beautiful and look perfect in our transitional style family room.
We spent a long time looking for lamps for our family room. Our style is pretty transitional and the colors of the room are neutral, with some accent colors of red and blue-green. We wanted the lamps to also serve as accents against our espresso colored side tables and the large gourd lamps in the green color were perfect. The ivory shades are gorgeous and overall, they completely tie everything in the room together. My only complaint was that one of the shades arrived with a smudge of dirt on it, likely from someone handling it during packing. I used some stain remover and it came off, but I was a bit nervous when I pulled it out of the box!

This lamp is beautiful, I got the green/gray color and it goes perfectly with the cushions I have.
It is the perfect combination of traditional and modern.
I love it and have gotten many compliments already.

I looked all over for some off white (creamy-colored) gourd lamps and these were by far the most stylish ones I found. They were perfect to tie in my cream colored mirror that is on the wall between. Nice clean lines.

Rated 3 out of 5 by decoratetoday Lamp base is beautiful, lamp shade is not.
The size and shape of this lamp is very pretty. I bought a pair of the cream colored lamps for the table behind the couch. The lamp shade has a large seam that runs down the shade and is very dark and pronounced. I will be looking for new shades, which is disappointing.

I am quite pleased with this lamp. The soft, expressive shape is lovely and it fits in our bedroom perfectly! The color is soft and the lamp shade works perfectly with the shape. How often have you tried a million shades to go with a lamp? Great value too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Enjoyourhome Just what I wanted!
I have a set of these lamps in the French Blue. They are a beautiful color and style. They serve as bedside table lamps in our master bedroom. It was necessary that they be 3 way switches and they work well. I, also, purchased the oatmeal linen shades. They are the perfect compliment. They have a nice presence in the room.
