Rated 2 out of 5 by rodeo Has potential
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
