Petite Tapered Drum Linen Chandelier Shade is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shape, size and color! I ordered these shades to control the light from the chandelier in my dining room. These definitely were the right choice, and the color selection is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Petite Tapered Drum Linen Chandelier Shade complemented my dining room chandelier perfectly. I knew that Ballard Designs would provide excellent value, but I still had to comparison shop to be sure. The big box stores and the home boutiques simply did not offer the variety of shades and choice of colors that Ballard Designs offers. The closest lamp specialty shop is across town, so I saved gas money by having Ballard Designs send the shades to me. The shades in cream gave my chandelier the completed look I wanted...no bare bulbs, and they did not compete with other lamp shades in the room. I am so pleased with my Ballard Designs purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality. True to color online. These Petite chandelier shades are well made and fit the décor as we hoped. The colors on the website are true so deciding on a color is easy. My wife loves them. Good price and well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Dress-up for Light The petite shades for my chandelier are so classy and hide the discolored tips of the bulbs. The quality, color (taupe), and appearance are perfect for my small dining area. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT PETITE SHADE I have a c 1925 light fixture that is not consistent in any way with the 5 branches for lights. The MINUTE THESE SHADES ARRIVED I called Ballard to brag on how perfect they were and I am sure the phone person thought I was nuts. He did NOT understand how difficult it is to find the right diameter in every dimension shade for this fixture and I know I am not the only person with this dilemma that BD resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I bought these to update the small chandelier lamps on the sconces that hang over my fireplace. My house was built in 1918, and the sconces are not much newer, but these chandelier shades really cleaned up the sconces without losing the period detail and looking too modern. Well made, great material. Would highly recommend them. I also bought Ballard's drum shades for a chandelier in an adjacent room, and these two tie together really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Color as pictured- Love the amount of light they allow. Wish I had bought this sooner to upgrade our bargain chandelier!
Date published: 2013-11-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with this product I was in need of a smaller than usual chandelier shade. This fit the bill perfectly. I purchased 12 in taupe and when I received them, I was pleased to find that both the quality and construction were very good.
Date published: 2013-03-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost great Love the color and the shape. However, you see the seam when the light is on and the ring at the top of the harp needs to be larger to accommodate the new LED bulbs because the shade does not cover the bottom of the bulb.
Date published: 2018-02-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Question before I order... I’d like to order these in off-white. I recently purchased something similar at a lighting store in off-white but the seam is so prominent when lit and it really bothers me. Do these shades show an obvious seam when lit?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shades These shades are good quality and well made. They were a little smaller than expected but look nice.
Date published: 2016-01-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used to be prettier These are very nice shades, well made, but check the sizes on the internet as they are not necessarily the same as what is printed in the catalog. The catalog lists the same size for all Ballard chandelier shades when in fact some are a little smaller, some a tad bigger, I love the size of these as they are smaller. But the material used to be nicer, not as nubby. If you want a more rustic or casual look these are great, but they do not work as well with formal chandeliers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from serve the purpose I recently purchased 5 small linen lampshades because the chandelier in my new home had bright light bulbs. Though a bit small, the shades serve their purpose and give out a nice light.
Date published: 2014-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean design I really liked the look of these shades; however, they were too small on my chandelier and will be exchanging them for a larger shade. I never thought of the measurement before ordering. Thought the size of these types of shares would be similar. None the less, they truly modernize the look of the chandelier and room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gray Linen shade I love the color and the fabric!! I think they are a bit smaller than I thought they would be!
Date published: 2013-08-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but colors totally off Initially I ordered "pear" but beware it looks nothing like on the computer or the catalog which is bright. I thought they had shipped the wrong color but it said "pear" on it. It looked like sage or a dried out grey green. Now I've ordered the "cream" which I'm keeping because I need something but again, it looks nothing like the catalog. The "cream" is actually very gray and sort of in the taupe family. So I would be cautious about ordering anything again as their colors are not remotely accurate.
Date published: 2016-07-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shade color different when the lights are on. Love these shades, they look just like the catalogue photo when my chandelier is off, but when the lights are on, especially at night, the shades have a purple tint. The color does not work with my color scheme, but I've decided to keep them as I got used to the color and didn't feel like returning them. If I had the chance again knowing this color change, I would not have bought them.
Date published: 2012-12-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from We ended up sending them back but the overall construction of them was good. While the size of the shades didnt suit our chandelier, the overall construction was good.
Date published: 2012-11-12
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheaply Made! Cream color is off. These little shades are very cheaply made. Arrived with little hot glue beads and strings all over. Edge of fabric is not turned back on itself so fabric will fray with time. Price is outlandish for quality. Cream color is more of a natural. Does not look anything like the picture online. Returning!
Date published: 2017-01-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from not attractive when the lights are on. The shades are lovely until the lights are turned on...then you see the actual fabric texture, which over a light looks like burlap.
