These lamps are beautiful but I am only giving 3 stars because the manufacturer needs to package the lamps better so the shades do not arrive dented. Both shades have dents in them that will not come out. Fortunately I am able to put the dented sides against the wall. Overstock's packaging was fine. The manufacturer packages them in a box too small with the product literally crammed into it. The lamps themselves are strikingly beautiful.
I ordered these two red lamps and set them up in our living room this past weekend. They add just the right touch of color and flare to our living room. I was afraid that they may look cheesy, but they really look very impressive. I love the shape of the shade the way it directs light up in a unique manner. The red bases add just a little sparkle, without being overpowering. They arrived on time and in great shape, just like everything I purchase from Overstock.

Although these are perfect for my bedroom decor, I find the illumination somewhat low for reading. The wattage is 20 higher than my previous bedside lamps but, because of the dark interior lining of the lovely red silk shades, I actually have less light than before
