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.

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.
They look good online, but better when you see them. They look very rich and are well made. Before I ordered them, I read the reviews and all agreed with me, with the exception of receiving dented shades. Although apprehensive to order because of that, I ordered them anyway. Much to my surprise, they arrived in perfect condition. No dents. Thank you Overstock for revising your shipping method on these. To anyone interested, you will be more than satisfied.
These lamps are beautiful online and in person. The reason I'm giving them only 4 stars is because one of the lamp shades was bent upon delivery. I noticed that was the biggest complaint while reading the reviews. Obviously it didn't stop me from buying them and I'm glad I did. I was able to push the small dent out and it was on the back side. However if you plan to purchase these be aware there is a chance your lamp shade(s) could arrive bent. Other than that they are exactly what I wanted.
These are prettier in person than they are in the picture! Beautiful and vibrant color of red. The only bad thing is the shade rests on the bulb and if you accidentally hit the shade they spin around and can get knocked off- and if you are OCD like me- it is hard to get both shades level and straight. But that is all small stuff- very happy with them.
The Casa Cortes Red Lumina lamp set is different in style and does look like the picture. The style is noticeable in a room. These lights are not designed to use as room lights, they are a dim accent light, limited to a 60 watt bulb. I ended up placing the shades on my original table lamps that take a 3way bulb because I needed room lights. I took the shades from my original table lamps and put them on the new lamps and used them as accent lamps on my book shelves. This solution worked for me otherwise I would have sent them back. One lamp and one shade was damaged slightly from shipping, but also can place those areas against the wall so you can't see it. Would I buy these again, no. The quality of the lamps are not worth the price paid.
I love my new lamps and I receive compliments from anyone that sees them. The style is spot on. This product was briefly out of stock and I thought I was going to have to settle for on lamps that werent exactly what I was looking for. I was relieved when these became available again. I was surprised to find the shade balances on the light bulb rather that attaching to a harp. This is not my preferred method but does not diminish the quality of the lamps.
If you like things that are different these are the lamps for you. They have a classy look yet have a very hip look. When I purchased them I was thinking that the red lamp shades might be to dark (for a bordelo look lol) but they are not as they are lined with white on the inside. They go great with the guatemelan quilt that O also sells and a rich shag carpet.
