I was really disappointed when I received this lamp because the leading lines are grey instead of black. Makes the shade look very washed out when the light is turned off. I want a lamp that is just as pretty when it's off so I painstakingly traced all the leading lines with a black felt pen. It looks MUCH better now, but it was a tedious process. I wish I could upload a before/after photo but I don't see how to do that.
This lamp is just as represented although the yellows in the photo appear to be more vivid; mine is softer, more of a butter color (which I like better). All the colors are nice shades and appear more than the photo depicts (when I look at the photo I see primarily yellows & golds). It hung easily with an included, round, ornate mounting bracket and 3 feet of wire and chain. This fixture comes wired to be attached to an electrical box; there is no 2-prong plug at the end. If you plan to plug it into a receptical you will need to buy wire and splice it. I used an extension cord, cutting off the receptical end and taping it. Maybe not to code, but it's safe The cord was then draped to the ceiling corner where a bronze plant hook was used to run the cord down the corner of the wall. The chain that is included is approx. 3 feet long; if you want chain all the way to the floor you can buy that length, remove the existing short chain that comes with a handy removable link and add your new long chain. I just left the short chain on as a tall piece of furniture obscures most of the wire running down the wall. I like this lamp even with it's hard-wired set-up I had to re-work. It is the right size and colors for my room.
This product was packed safely as to not have any breakage. And its truly beautiful. I would definitely tell family and friends about it The customer service is excellent as well, almost positive, happy and helpful. I will surely be ordering for Overstock again.
I'm changing my kitchen color and was looking for a lamp to match. I came across this lamp on-line and compared it with my paint chip. Yes, I took a chance that it would indeed match. When I received it I set it on the kitchen table for a couple of days, had it installed with an led, and was pleasantly surprised when it was illuminated! Colors become much more vivid!
I love the golden glow that this light produces. It is so beautiful with the light switched on and I'm looking for more of this but it seems to be sold out everywhere else! Grab it if you see it. Great value for the money. With the lights off, the black lines are not too neat but doesn't bother the eyes too much either.
