Rated 4 out of 5 by sparky12 Great reading lamp/no shade
This is an attractive and functional piece because of the 3-way bulb. It does NOT come with a shade as stated above.
It is tall and slender, and easily tipped over because the base is not weighted, so if you have pets or young children I would not recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ceisue Exactly what I needed
I had been looking for quite a while for a floor lamp for my living room for my Florida home - wasn't sure exactly what I wanted; just knew I would know it when I saw it. This lamp fit the bill perfectly! I love it. Not too beachy - fits in perfectly. I love the shade. I would highly recommend this lamp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by insp678 Very good-looking lamp
I love this lamp! The detail is very pretty and the quality is good enough. My one complaint is that the bottom of the one I got isn't quite flat, so it just slightly tips to one side, but with an (unnoticeably thin) felt pad under one side, it's fine, so I'm keeping it.

The lamp arrived quickly and was packaged well. It was very easy to assemble and looks just stunning in my den. I am so glad I found it.

This lamp is attractive and easy to put together. I would have given it more stars, but a small chunk of wood was missing from the base, and the light bulb did not work. I do wish it would take a 150 watt bulb. If you opt for the sea grass or dark shade, you will not have enough light to read. Overall, I am pleased with this lamp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janski27 I love this floor lamp!
I ordered this lamp for my bedroom and it's perfect. The white-washed look is well-done and the wood lamp base is high quality. I thought about this for a long time and now that I have it, I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1PatientCustomer It was worth waiting 4 months for the delivery!
Ordered in January with a May shipment date at a reduced price. Received an email stating that shipment was delayed another two weeks which at that point, was fine.
Easy to assemble and it came with light bulbs!
Very pleased with my Ballard purchase, as usual!

The lamp was exactly as I had hoped it would be. The height was perfect, the shade provided an interesting texture to the room, and the color although black, was somewhat brown which I liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeoC great-looking floor lamp
Nicest floor lamp I could find! (I got the off-white one.) Came well-packaged and looks just like the pictures. Adds great texture to my room. Only thing is...I think the shade that comes with it is a bit too small. The larger shade Ballard sells would have looked better with it. I kept the one it came with because the space where I have the lamp in my bedroom is tight and this one fits better. Still this floor lamp looks great. Very happy with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happy2buy Love this lamp !
I am using this lamp on an enclosed patio and it is just perfect for the look I wanted.
The shade gives just the right touch of unexpected texture and the wooden base is elegant, yet a bit rustic. Just the look I was hoping to achieve ! The three way bulb provided gives plenty of light and looks lovely filtered through the shade.
The lamp was extremely well packed, but I was able to unpack and assemble it by myself with no trouble at all.
The shade is quite unique and very nicely lined. I ordered the black base and it is an "antiqued' black, as pictured, and very attractive.
This is a great lamp for a very reasonable price. I am very satisfied with both the lamp and Ballard's excellent service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lyndell Loved the finish on wood & the texture of lamp
Is shorter than it looks in picture...didnt realize it was next to such a short piece of furniture. Had a small section of lamp damaged in shipping, but not worth returning Love the overall look of lamp and would recommend to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by glad2shop Great lamp
I was a little hesitant about ordering this lamp after reading some of the reviews, but am so glad I did. It's just what we were looking for in our enclosed patio. The lamp is beautiful and very well made. The lampshade is uninique and gives off a lovely light. The 3 way bulb is certainly bright enough for any use. We have no problem at all with the quality of the shade or the lining.
The lamp was very well packaged in two boxes. I am a 5' tall grandmother and had no trouble removing and assembing this lamp completely on my own. It is sturdy and well made, casual, yet elegant.
All in all we are very pleased with this stunning lamp itself and Ballard's excellent service.

The lamp looks lovely, however, the condition of the seagrass shade leaves room for improvement. I was expecting more quality for the price I paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kerrymax I really like the look of the lamp.
I think the lamp looks very nice in the space.....
The only negative was the inside lining of the shade was torn in one place....
too much hassal to send it back for that.
I'd say the stiching was done a little too loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TrishH Even better in person.
As with other Ballard Design purchases, I find the item to be better in person than in the catalog. This is a very solid lamp that was easy to assembe and looks fantastic in our family room.

Although the lamp I purchased was supposed to be in
a "whitewash," it looks more "green" than white.
Additionally, the floor lamp base is very flimsy, not

Rated 4 out of 5 by Francais Adds nice texture
While not as heavy/substantial as I expected, this lamp adds nice texture with the pretty curves of the base along with the seagrass shade. The lining of the shade is a bit skimpy, but if it was thicker, you would lose the nice glow that shows through the shade when the lamp is lit. The seams could be smoother to make it appear more polished and complete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyMommy Pretty, but you should know...
I like the look of this floor lamp base very much, but if you are purchasing it in the rubbed black, you should know that in person, it does not represent as black in my opinion. I have had distressed black pieces in the past that looked black, but this looks more cognac or espresso. We had initially tried it with the sea grass shades, but we did not care for those in person. They looked cheap, and they allowed no light through. Ballard was great about taking them back. We replaced the shades with shades from elsewhere, and now my issue is I find it hard to get any shade to sit exactly straight on one of the two lamp bases I bought. But those issues aside, the bases are very pretty, and I felt the price was good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mmac "rubbed black" was more like "espresso brown"
Good quality and price. The rubbed black is not a true black. It is much more of a dark espresso brown. We got it for a room with rubbed black furniture and it doesn't match. We'll find another place for it, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luv2sail Very nice lamp base; needs larger size shade
Ordered this product in the natural finish. Its casual elegance goes very well with beige/brown/spa color scheme in living room. I did feel, however, that the seagrass shade that comes with it is too small for the lamp base and not much light shines through it. I kept the shade for use elsewhere and will have to order a larger fabric shade for the floor lamp. Also ordered the matching table lamp with the same size shade that came with the larger floor lamp and it fits the smaller table base perfectly. Very nice pair of lamps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gagne001 nice floor lamp
I bought this floor lamp because I was looking for something with a wicker type shade. I waited a long time and finally purchased it when it was sale. I like it very much. It is cozy and very sturdy. It doesn't wobble like some floor lamps and is made from real wood, not resin. It came with a three way compact fluorescent bulb which was a bonus since those are quite expensive. The only trouble I had is that the lining of the shade which is a nice earthy pumpkin color, was coming apart at the edge. I didn't want to send it back and go through all the hassle, so I just smoothed it down and taped it back in place. It seems like it happened while being packed. It doesn't show unless you look under the shade. So it's fine. I would recommend this lamp for all sorts of settings. It's casual, yet classy because of the good craftsmanship. I have not been able to find anything comparable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewLook The perfect accessory for my home.
It was so hard to find a nice looking floor lamp that didn't look like it came from "my grandmother's house". The lamp actually looks better then it did in the catalog and on-line. I am thrilled with the modern yet classic French look. I have topped it with the Document/Drum shade for an extra special touch. I was also very pleased with the price, I got great value for my money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by constantshopper Looks great, poor quality.
The lamp looks fabulous, and I get compliments on it, but the finial isn't attached to the screw, so it falls off every time I move the lamp and the bottom of the finial isn't flush with the top of the lamp structure, so the shade wobbles. I will redo it but but it is very shoddy workmanship.
