I am beyond thrilled with these lamps. They are stunning! The shade is very nice, slightly metallic finish, reflects light nicely. The metal finish is polished and more platinum than silver in finish, which is a nice darker tone. The mosaic glass is beautiful and reflects light very well. I never want to turn these off because they are so much more beautiful when turned on. Packaged well for shipping. Arrived quickly.
When I first took the lamps out of the box, I was a little disappointed in the quality of the mosaic. There was more white space between the glass than I expected and I wasn't sure I liked it. Once I set them up, however, I didn't even notice. I purchased them to complete our master bedroom and they look amazing. I was really looking for something elegant and classy to finish the look of our room after we purchased a new bedroom set and these were the perfect finishing touch. We turn them both on every night as soon as we enter the room because they have a beautiful glow - perfect relaxing bedroom lighting.
These lamps are gorgeous and the shades are beautiful. They are above my expectations and more beautiful than the pictures. I have seen similar lamps for $250 each. The shades are a nice taupe silk...very rich looking and the metal is a dark silvery bronze. The body is mosaic glass in cream and coppery shades. You won't be disappointed!
I ordered these lamps for our bedroom and received them within 6 days. They were packaged very well, and arrived without any damage to the shades or base. The lamps are beautiful! From the picture I expected a slightly more pinkish shade, but it's not as noticeable in 'person'. It's more like a champagne color, which is gorgeous. The shades do not let any light through, so all light comes from top and bottom. The 'mosaic' globes reflect the surrounding colors and light from above, making them blend with any interior. The base of the lamp is heavy and the whole lamp feels substantial in weight. The quality is much better than I would have expected for the price (and free shipping too!). A slight minus point is that the shades are hard to level on the lamp base. The metal spindles that connect the shade to the base are a little flimsy, and I had a hard time leveling one of the shades on the base, because the ring is slightly tilted. But since the spindles are quite thin, they are bendable, too. So with some careful adjusting I was able to level the shade. One other thing I don't like about these (and about 80% of all other lamps in the US) is the on/off switch which is in such an awkward place: directly beneath the light bulb. I would love to see a switch that's more accessible. On the electrical cord for instance, or even better: on the lamp base itself, which is the way many other countries do it. But the lamps are a great buy. I certainly recommend.
These lamps are the perfect color (champagne) and style for our bedroom. They sparkle when the sun hits the glass and look great day and night. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is due to the lack of light you actually get while on. We will live with them as is because the shades are too pretty to change out.
