Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful This is a gorgeous lamp shade, I love the striations in the material (due to the fact that it's silk) that you see when the light is on. I feel like maybe I should move it out of my master bedroom so I can show it off more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lamp Shades I received two silk lamp shades from Ballard. Although I haven't used them yet, the shades seem to be of very good quality. I should mention that this is what I expected from the shades given Ballard's excellent reputation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's A LIGHTER SHADE The shade is well made and fits well. I am disappointed that the color of the shade is lighter than the photo on the website. Another color option isn't available. The delivery was timely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice shade I bought this lampshade to replace the original on a favorite floor lamp. It is well made. However, I realized that it is a bit smaller than the original. Would have rated it excellent if it was larger.
Date published: 2014-05-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product; addtional info needed. While shade has same bottom dimension as the shade I was replacing, it was 2 inches shorter, necessitating replacement of harp. It would be helpful if info had included height, so customer could make a more informed choice. Lovely fabric, nice design. With a new harp my lamp looks lovely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value. Attractive shades. Shades are great. My only issue is, for me at least, the ivory is more white than ivory.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First time shopper First time shopper at Ballard Met with designer and selected appropriate shades but was not told of shipping charges seriously disappointed with their limited stock had to order 3 lamp shades to determine what I needed and paid excessive shipping a $60 lamp shade which was already overpriced woyh no lining no special treatment plus $30 in shipping A simple lamp shade cost me almost a $100 it will be a long time before I shop ballard again

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly squat… The lampshade is fine but the proportions feel a little short and stout.
Date published: 2022-11-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful shade- color mislabeled. I ordered 2 Ivory silk shades in Ivory. When they arrived, they were dead white. I reordered them, telling customer service that they must have just made an order mistake. They quickly resent 2 new ones in Ivory and when they came, they were exactlythe same. So if you need ivory- do not order this particular shade.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Right size and color, fabric flaws show when light on I'be been looking for a long time for a lampshade this size and shape. I purchased the bell shaped shade in a gold linen. I like the way it looks on the lamp, but when the light is on, the fabric flaws are revealed. On most of the panes (fabric between facets of the shade) the fabric grain is straight up and down. But on a few of the panes the fabric runs diagonally. And two panes come togehter where the fabric runs diagonally in oposite directions creating an odd V shape. Makes the shade look cheap. I probably could have returned it, but I'm really tired of shopping for shades, and if I turn the flawed panes to the wall, hopefully no one will notice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor range of colors This silk shade used to come in a range of colors, and now, the limited, boring, color-range leaves something to be desired. I purchased the 'Ivory' silk shade. It is not ivory but just plain, old, boring white. I shall not buy Ballard lamp shades again. However, these shades are beautiful, nicely made, and so far the quality seems fine. The silk is very nice. I am in the process of redoing my living room in French/French Country, and the silk shades add an elegant French touch! Earlier this year (2011), I purchased two of these shades in an aqua color - they are beautiful! Also, at that time, BD had more colors from which to choose. The selection now is just boring neutrals (and one, homely, rust color). Where is pink; orchid; periwinkle; aqua; blue; a soft, muted, fern green, etc.? For those colors, I shall shop elsewhere other than Ballard.
