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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BDShopper Purchased another set for a different home - very nice.
Fit very nicely in our second bedroom. The features of both the base and the shade fit exceptionally well together without taking up a lot of space. And the colors go well with the wall and fabric colors in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kcvestate Beautiful lamp and shade
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

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JessR Adorable, but shades have visible dents
I bought two of these lamps for our family room end tables and love the quality and color of the base. Very classic and pretty - however both shades came with small dents (in the same spot). I have had to turn them so the dents face the wall, so now the seams are visible. Otherwise they are perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by patk4522 This lamp is great
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 5 out of 5 by tennis66 This lamp has a graceful shape
This lamp is a graceful addition to our guest bedroom. It is affordably priced. I would prefer a 3 way switch to increase the light output but it is satisfactory with a 100 watt bulb.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amy5555 This lamp has a great shape
This lamp has a great shape, but be aware that when lit, the shade is quite yellow. I was not expecting this and am not looking forward to the expense of purchasing a replacement shade in white, the color the shade actually appears online.

I love my small gourd lamp. It's the perfect size for a small table beside the sofa and the color was as described online. I would definitely recommend this item.

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 5 out of 5 by Valf57 Good looking, high quality
I purchased two of the cream small gourd lamps after purchasing two of the larger gourd lamps, also in cream. The bases are high quality, as are the shades. My only small peeve is that the lamp harp and interior shade trim is bright brass-colored, and would have been better with my decor if it had been chrome or nickel-colored. The cream is definitely not a white-white; in low light it looks almost light grey, but it's a very elegant look.

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.
