I was looking for a secondary light for my living room to avoid the constant use of my bright, 4 light ceiling fan. I choose this lamp, over others, for reasons including that it looked beautiful and fit my style, that it was shorter than many others (i don't have high ceilings), and because of the 3-way. The lamp turned out perfect. Not only is it beautiful against my dark stained wood, the 3-way function is just what I needed. The lamp is powerful and can light up my whole living room or shed a gentle glow thru the pretty tan lamp shade. The lamp post/base closely resembles a flat black from a typical persons perspective, although it does have coppery highlights throughout. Seems study and well made, and stands straight. Well packaged and very simple assembly. I would recommend.
I was looking for riparian, botanical themed lamps. I purchased this floor lamp also with the table lamps. Took a gamble as there were no reviews. Couldn't go wrong. Love them! Nicely made, fits my theme. Couldn't be happier with the price. This floor lamp is a little shorter than most floor lamps, so you may want to measure. Works ideal for me though.
My purchase of this floor lamp started off with Overstock.com having it delivered to my house within 48 hours of ordering it, and that's with just the normal, free shipping. The lamp was well packaged, enough so that there was no damage to any of the components, including the shade. I did read the instructions prior to assembling the lamp. They were easy to understand, and putting the lamp together was a piece of cake. This seems like a good quality lamp. It is very heavy, and the parts, such as the pole, fit together snug and secure. The body of the lamp is black in color, with a slightly distressed look that bring out highlights of a copper colored finish. The color of the shade is a mixture of browns, and there is an underlying "twinkle" of copper colored sparkles in the shade. These sparkles are not visible when the lamp is on. All-in-all, I am very satisfied with this floor lamp...
Why I gave this three stars. I love the lamp, BUT the switch to turn the lamp on is bent and there was a cut in the lamp shade. If it were not for that I would give it all five stars. Fortunately I had an extra lamp shade that looks good on the lamp. I needed it this week and didn't return, but I really should. Kind of a pain. So, not sure if it was in the shipping or packaging, but there was damage. The base is heavy, and everything else I love. The style is nice and matches my decor. It is a three way light.
