Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect fit and look for a lamp I love! I have searched stores in my area for the right size drum shade to replace an ugly and oversized one that has been on the lamp too long but to no avail. When I looked through my latest Ballard Designs catalog I found an 18" drum shade that I hoped would work and it does just that. The packaging got it to me safe and sound and when I placed it on the lamp I finally achieved the look I wanted. Thank you Ballard Designs for having exactly what the right thing to get a certain look. I will be back to try some other ideas that I have seen in my favorite catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great texture and nicely made. This lampshade is exactly what I was expecting. I am happy with everything I have bought from Ballard's. The linen sheer tie top drapery panels are just the right touch in my bedroom and the Bradley floor lamps are the perfect choice for my living room. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like the original I bought this lamp shade as a replacement for a lamp that my parents bought in the 1950s. This shade makes my memories of our family room come to life again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect update for an old lamp I have a favorite wooden carved Ballard lamp I purchased 15 years ago. The shade on it was fine but dated, and this shade completely changes the look of the lamp. Now it makes a much bigger statement in the room AND modernized the lamp making it seem like I just bought it. The quality of the seagrass shade is excellent and because I underestimated the size I would need, I had to return the first two, and Ballard was wonderful about the returns--so easy! Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, at a decent price. The fabric was more gray than aqua but that worked okay for my decor. It is well constructed and I felt the price was fair compared to others I've seen of similar size and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheetah Drum Shades - ordered 2 - a bit crumpled when they arrived but popped back into place with no problem. I ordered the largest size and was afraid they'd be too large but they are perfect. WOW is all I can say. I love they way they look and now I feel like my great room makes a very classy / edgy/ modern statement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Box arrived on time, the lampshade was well packed and arrived with no damage. This lampshade is exactly the right color, shape and size I needed. The quality is good for the price. I also ordered fabric by the yard to recover some existing pieces of furniture and the lampshade looks great with the newly re-upholstered furniture. (BTW: the fabric exceeded my expectations-LOVE LOVE LOVE it!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a new look to an old room! I hesitantly bought the drum lampshade (natural burlap), because I had tried probably 7 or 8 and taken them all back. This one actually looks great against my drapery, window, etc. I had a horrible time trying to get a shade big enough, but this one is the large size, and it sits beautifully on my floor lamp. Needed something not really sleek or dressy--this is very warm and homey looking, at the same time very stylish. The finial I got was the shield, and it was just like the cherry on a great chocolate sundae!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shade I ordered the Document pattern and absolutely love the look. Very different from other shades and it gives my wall lamp a totally different look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lampshade is perfect. Love the script pattern. I ordered the script pattern. It really compliments the pewter lamp it "adorns" and the brown leather chair it sits next to. The only issue I had was with the packing. The shade had several "dents" in it when it arrived. They did pop right out. There was not alot of protective packing around the lampshade when it was shipped.
