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.
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.
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.
I purchased two lamps and was very happy with one. The other had a very noticeable flaw in the base and had to be returned. Hoping the replacement is free of flaws. The shade is made from a woven almost burlap type fabric but would have been so much prettier if it were a silk/polyester. I would then have given it a 5 star rating.
This is one heavy lamp. I have no worries about this slipping off the side table. The shade is very high quality. I gave 4 stars because there are a few tiny air bubbles towards the base of the lamp. You can't see from afar so it is very minor. I would buy this lamp again.
Ordered 2. They look fantastic in my bedroom. Take note... I recommend that you remove from packaging outside. The little balls stick to everything. The shades are not perfect but close enough for my purpose. If that will bother you, choose another lamp.
These were exceptionally well packaged and a cinch to set up. It's important to note that these are very heavy and tall lamps but they worked out beautifully with my tufted headboard as nightstand lights. The shades are great quality and the light comes through at just the right amount. I installed Philips HUE light bulbs so I could control the brightness and even at the brightest level (which is ridiculously bright) the shades provided complete coverage of the bulb so as to not expose it directly to anyone in the room. There were a couple minor imperfections I noticed in the crystal around the base and in the knobs at the top but for the price I'm beyond thrilled with them and highly recommend these lamps to anyone considering them versus higher priced options.
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.
