First off, regardless of your monitor settings, just like other reviewers have said, the lampshades are not the color depicted in the picture. Those are different lampshades altogether - it's possible the lamp came in a variety of lampshade colors. It's not the peachy, coppery color shown. And it's not gold either! What I received can be described at best as khaki. Whether the lamp is on or not. Now you have khaki green or khaki brown. I've thought hard about this! I would say it is a pale khaki green or a pale sage. No correlation whatsoever to the color shown! As for those who say the color is gold, there must be another color floating around out there. The fabric is a taffeta-like fabric that has a slight shine and texture to it. Based on the reviews, I knew I wouldn't get the color shown in the picture so was expecting and could make do with the gold. I didn't get anything that resembled gold! As to the quality, it's not the best, especially the area where the bulb goes. A bit wobbly. I didn't feel quite safe plugging in the first one I assembled and turning it on. Anyway, so far the house has not burned down. They were very easy to put together - was able to do both under 15 minutes without looking at the instructions. I have them in my bedroom on each side of my bed. The lampshades are bigger than I expected - take note of the measurements because I didn't! I would say the bottom of the shade measures about 8 or 9 inches wide, and they're square. So they're sizable lamps. After the shock of not receiving the gold like I thought I would, I quite like them. I put 60 watt bulbs in them so that I can see. They do come with those energy saving bulbs, but the wattage is so low I couldn't read with them. All in all, for what I paid for the lamps, and having come to terms with the color of the shades, I would recommend them with the understanding that you forget about the color shown in the picture.
I have to say, this is my 2nd pair of these lamps. They are timeless in style. The shades are beautiful, it remarkably is bendable with upscale furnishings or with toned down. Excellent for entry tables, dressers or small night stands.
The set of Coolidge Buffet Lamps was exactly what I had been looking for, and I did search for quite a while on different sites, but this lamp set really stood out to me. It is everything I wanted and expected. It was very easy to assemble and it brings out the beauty of the room I have it in. They are tall and slender and the workmanship is outstanding. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Read the reviews, ordered the lamps and was disappointed to find the pipe of the lamps were not the same when I placed them side by side. The decorative part on the pipe was 3" inches high on one and 5" on the other. Notified Overstock.com and they sent me replacement lamps. First one out of the replacement box matched the 5" and I was delighted. Lamps look great on my buffet and are well worth the price. Could not find anything comparable when shopping at stores. Feel very comfortable ordering from Overstock .com that if my order is not satisfactory, they will ensure customer satisfaction.
I am very pleased with my buffet lamps (set of 2). They arrived fast and without damage. They were very easy to put together, too. The shades are a very light neutral shade of green which works perfectly with my dining room colors. I will always check Overstock.com first when I am in need of something.
It's a cute pair of lamps for the ***. The finials/harps were missing on my first order, but Overstock took care of that immediately by sending another pair. Now I just need to return the lamps not needed which I have a free label for :)
