If you like how this looks just go ahead and order it. It is gorgeous, looks and feels like a high-end piece, etc. The only potential issue, at some point, could be the socket - that is the cheap "Made In China" aspect. But any lamp store can replace that for a couple of bucks. Also, the shade is a blue-gray so depending on the other colors in the room the shade will look either blueish-gray or grayish-blue. Doesn't bother me. But looks blue in my bedroom.
Beautiful lamps that looked just like the picture. Heavy as lead and thankful for free shipping. Shippping was faster than a speeding bullet, was very impressed by that feature. Willl continue to shop Overstock.com as this was my first purchase and it was a very, very pleasant experience.
First off I give this 5 stars because of the Quality to Price ratio. Or Value. And a disclaimer... I'm an Interior Designer so was not expecting much. It is for an inconspicuous spot so didn't want to buy another $1200 Crystal Lamp like I have throughout the apartment. This piece looks fantastic. Perfect actually for what it's being used for and since it's not placed right next to the much more expensive lamps so creates a uniform look throughout the apartment. You'd have to look close to see differences. Shade is a bit odd in it's construction but OK for most purposes. Will change it out but no need to rush. Overall a great piece. Excellent Value.
First! Mad props to Overstock for such a quick 3-day delivery! Thank you. However, I'm sad to say, this is my lowest review I've ever written, and for very good reason. From afar these lamps look good, close up they do not. There were many air bubbles in the glass where the pieces were glued together. The bar that extends out of one lamp was so crooked that no one would want it, not even for free. Also, one lamp shade had blood stains (yes, I'm not joking), and the construction of the shade cheapens the look. Had I seen these in a store, I wouldn't have taken either one of them, even if they were free. On a good note, these lamps are incredibly heavy, a quite possibly high-end lamp that would have cost 100's if it passed quality control. I'll do my best to make them work, considering it'd be far too expensive to ship them back... and have to admit, for $*** each, I wasn't expecting perfection but wow, these are really bad. Lesson learned.
The lamp is beautiful and looks great in my home. The crystal body is very heavy and the shade is a nice compliment to the lamp. My only problem was the packaging. The lamp is surrounded by styrafoam which broke during shipment. The receptacle for the bulb was bent and needed to be straightened out. The shade was also slightly damaged, but was saved. When taking the lamp out of the box, the styrafoam beads come off and scatter everywhere. It's a pain to clean up after unpacking. The lamp is really nice, but there has to be a better way to pack it.
This lamp is simply beautiful ~ Lamps like this sell for hundreds of dollars in high end stores. After buying one, I quickly purchased another to place on bedroom nightstands as a set. My bedroom now looks like an exquisite retreat in a 5 star getaway! The textured shade is unique & interesting, the fabric resembles mesh or a 'burlap' weave and the crystal base is solid, sturdy and HEAVY! Great, because hopefully now my hungry kitty won't knock over the lamp while I am sleeping! The socket is less than perfect but with a little finagling, it seems to be okay for now. Do like the 3 way feature. The packaging is Styrofoam which arrived broken up due to what must have been a bumpy trip so be sure to know this when opening the packaging. However, in the long run, it protected the lamp from what could have been major damage. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase and I highly recommend this product if you are looking to add luxury to any room. And, I cannot say enough good things about Overstock's customer service department. Top notch service and awesome products & savings!
I use it as an accent lamp in the lounge room. It doesn't really give off a lot of light but it is good to highlight a part of the room. Its design is elegant and classy. The crystal part is also very heavy, which is what I was looking for. Overall, very happy with it.
After I read the reviews, I ordered two lamps. Loved them so much that I ordered two more. So now I have two in my bedroom and two in my living room. I really can't find anything that I don't love about them. They are very heavy so my cats haven't knocked them over and with the pale greyish-silver shades, they give off a good light. I had to buy the knob for one lamp and fix the knob in another lamp but that didn't cost much.
