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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolinaBlue Great purchase!
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.

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.

I purchased two large camel lamps. Although beautiful, the color is more tan than camel, but neutral enough to work. They are more than impressive in person than online. One arrived with a damaged lamp shade which customer service promptly replaced. Overall, these are truly beautiful and look fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DesignDiva82 Stylish and high quality
I completely agree with the other reviewers in that the smokey gray has definite blue undertones and not brown or green, and I love it! The shade is of an expensive looking linen, and the lamp is heavy and sturdy. It's a great addition to more traditional furniture because it does give a modern, clean touch to balance it out. At first, I thought it was huge when I opened it up, but next to my couch it is perfect.

I really like the lamps. They are a great shape and finish. I wish the colors were a little deeper, though, as they appear in the photos. They gray looks browner and the gold looks golder than they actually are.

I bought this lamp for our beach house and the lamp fits in perfectly with all the colors in the house, which are mostly neutral, with the exception of the tile floors which are terra cotta. The size and quality is perfect and the color magnificent. The price - perfect!

Beautifully complement my home. I have the smaller one in my bedroom (cream) and the larger in my den in the sage gray color. However that color still has a blue undertone to it. I was hoping for more green undertones. Still looks great!

This is the cutest lamp. The shape is so appealing and it is just the right size for my room. And the price was so much more affordable than similar lamps from other places that were not as good-looking. I love it!

I purchased the Suzanne Kasler gourd lamp in the light blue color and it is the perfect soft french blue touch i needed between two gray velvet chairs in my living room. The shape is nice, it is a substantial piece and we are very pleased with it.

The lamp it was back ordered- but it was worth the wait. We had a minor issue with the lampshade being a bit crooked when we assembled it to the base. But it was easily fixed. We got the french blue color and it is a beautiful soft, calming color. It matches our family room decor. I would definitely recommend it.

I am very pleased with my purchase of the gourd lamps in french blue. the color is very true to the picture in the catalog. It looks beautiful in my bedroom with the cherry-wood furniture. The lamps were delivered before the expected due date . Looking forward to working with Ballard again. Thanks again.

I think the lamp can swing to the traditional or to the comtemporary. The large size is nice and big. I live in a loft with super high ceilings, and the lamp is a great size for the bedroom it is in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PrairieDweller4ever The perfect choice!
These lamps are perfect on our bedside tables.....lovely finish with a nice shade. We purchased the ivory, which I would call a light bone/very pale grey combination.....kind of unusual and pretty. The color goes with everything. We chose the pewter finials from among the offerings, and they too, are made well and look great. They go with the pewter knobs on our chest of drawers. Also, the height of the small size lamp is good for bedside, or any accent place in the home. I really like the shape......great lamps!

I love my new gourd lamp. The soft green color brings out the other greens in my room. The design is classic, yet fresh, and it adds that new little touch to my room that makes me enjoy all of it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SwimMomRuns Good value and stylish lamps
I purchased the small lamp in Cream and the large lamp in French Blue. Overall, very satisfied with the lamps. They were packed very well and the shades are in perfect condition. The French Blue lamp I received is more gray in color, with just a "hint" of light blue. I would have preferred it to be a tad more blue, but it still seems to work with my decor. Note: lamps come with an included 100 watt-equivalent CFL, but the light bulb specifically says not to use it with a 3-way lamp, and these lamps are 3-way.
