I love these lamps. They look great in my living room. They have an odor of oil when you first open the box from the finish, but after removing them from the box and airing them out, they no longer have that smell. When they arrived, one of the feet at the base was broken. I called Overstock and it was quickly replaced (Thanks Overstock). I wish they made a matching floor lamp. As one other reviewer mentions, the shades are oval. I would recommend.
I expected the lamps to be somewhat cheap looking based on the price, but they are quite nice. They are heavier than I expected for the price as well. My one quibble would be that the color is not a metallic bronze as I expected - up close it almost looks like a wood grain - but they work just fine in my office. Overall, I am extremely pleased.
I just received this set of Caten lamps, & very please with them too. Nice & modern,and easy to assemble ,which stands out & looks very nice on my glass end tables too. A very nice weight to them,and a nice sturdy lamp for the price too. Plus the shades are nicer than the picture too,and more of an oval in width type of oatmeal color shade too. The only negative issue I have with them,that I had to add a thin metal ring to the top of the lamp,to prevent the shade from wobbling,& actually fixed the issue I had with the lamps. It did come with a little plastic ring,but needed an additional one to secure & balance out each shade. Overall...it's a great buy!
