Couture Empire Lamp Shade is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! The two shades are perfect for our existing bases, even better than the originals. The quality is excellent and the price is very good for such lovely shades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seagrass lampshades The seagrass texture does not allow for much light to show through. But I do love the aesthetics of them.
Date published: 2019-08-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and Style! I purchased these in the Seagrass. They are the perfect accessory for my coastal-casual look. In fact, I liked the empire style pair I have in my bedroom so much, I purchased a rectangular one for a living room lamp as well. Great quality and style!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Lamp Shade This lamp shade brought new life to a lamp that I've had for several years! The lamp is shaped like a big seashell. It's mauve-colored and has white speckling on part of it. The new shade is a white-on-white cross-hatch design and looks really good on my lamp. It added a simple elegance! Happy with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful lampshade! This beautiful shade enhanced my lamp far more than the original shade. Allows more light in the room and adds needed texture! Fast shipping! Very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful seagrass---authentic I am so very happy with my purchase of 2 seagrass lampshades. I have a seagrass chair & a floor lamp with seagrass shade. It all blends together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dramatic Pop of Color! I purchased two of these shades in the "spice" color a month ago and the look is warm and stunning! I had been searching for shades in this color for the last 2-3 years so what a find. On another positive note these shades were placed on two Chapelle Urn lamps from Ballard. The whole effect is just what I was aiming for and the compliments keep coming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely made lampshade I needed a lampshade to update a large cylinder shaped lamp for my kitchen. I have been pleased in the past with the quality of Ballard’s lampshades so I selected an Empire shade in burlap. I read Ballard’s section on selecting a lampshade to determine the shape and size of the lampshade. I am so pleased with the burlap lampshade - it is beautifully made and fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous - makes the room Purchased this shade after looking for just the right shade for many months. So excited to find this one at Ballard because it is so well made and beautifully designed.
Date published: 2019-03-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made, perfect color After agonizing way too long over whether or not I was getting right size and color, I was very happy with perfect fit. The fabric was very nice and the fern green was just what I wanted. I will probably order another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this woven lamp shade. This shade refreshed an older lamp that I owned and gave the room a coastal vibe. Love Ballard products. They are well made and always fashion forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Shape Compliments Many Lamps This flared lamp shade balances out many different lamps. Fit well with both an Eiffel Tower shaped lamp and a large "blown" glass lamp. The natural ivory linen material is a great color and good quality fabric. I am quite pleased with these lamp shades and will be ordering more.
Date published: 2016-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lamp shade Good quality & appearance. Ordered the cork shade & it's perfect for our light blue glass lamp for our beachy themed house. Cane on time & well packaged, in perfect condition.
Date published: 2016-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look great in my beachy-nautical room. I purchased the empire shades in cork finish to compliment my handmade pottery lamps. They look like they were made for each other. Great quality, I know they will last for years. They also look great with the same shade in burlap that is on my floor lamp from Ballard's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I purchased the Empire Shade in Natural Linen for a set of lamps which had plain white parchment shades that had seen better days. My lamps were instantly transformed & I am no longer tempted to replace them. These shades are as nice or nicer than what is available at lamp stores & very well priced.
Date published: 2014-08-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shade is of great quality The shade looks great on my lamp and hides the bulb and arm. My last shade you could see thru the shade. It is of very good quality and looks more expensive than it was.
Date published: 2014-08-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed We needed to replace 20+ year old "coolie" style shades on two hand blown art/craft glass cylinder lamps. We were unable to find the original (short wide "coolie") profile and choose the empire as a substitute. The grey color and linen fabric are great with the colors in the glass and if anything the empire profile may be an improvement. It lets more light go up - which is an important factor in our setting.
Date published: 2014-05-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased, have purchased several the past few years. I first purchased the seagrass lamp shades for our condo in Florida. I didn't use them on the lamps I had intended because they looked so much better than white shades I had purchased for another set of lamps. Turns out the harps on the original lamps were too tall anyway. Several years later, after finally getting the right size harps for the original lamps, I purchased the cream empire shades and they look great. I also replaced a lampshade at home with an ivory shade and it looks great too. The seagrass shades are still in excellent condition after several years of humid coastal weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the color Not that lampshades are exciting but it sure does make a difference on the lamp. Goes perfectly with my gray background. Beautiful linen styling, looks very high end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Shade I searched for just the right shade for my antique spool lamp and this grass shade was the perfect size and shape.
Date published: 2013-10-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase I had searched many sources to find the lamp shades that would work for me. When I found these in the catalog, I was not sure that they would work, but when they arrived they were the perfect size and more importantly, the perfect color. The order was handled promptly and correctly.
Date published: 2013-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order burlap shades - came in great time and look great. I ordered 3 burlap shades and they all came in timely, in great shape and high quality. I'm very satisfied and will order again.
Date published: 2013-05-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to add interest to a simple base I used these shades on two lamps from another store, which are a gun metal gray, simple candlestick style. The shades that came with the lamps were quite plain, and these with the subtle writing pattern really amp up the style. My husband and an interior designer friend both agreed that it was a good change.
Date published: 2013-05-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as pictured online. Delighted with the two lampshades that I purchased in document brown. Just what I was looking for. These add the perfect finishing touch to my hallway.
Date published: 2013-04-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have the seagrass style I have 2 of these in a beach house - they don't let a lot of light through, but enough and look pretty at night.
