This is a great lamp allowing you to use either one or two bulbs. With two 100 watt equivalent bulbs, the light is great for reading or doing just about anything. If you want just a little light while watching TV, one bulb is fine. It really provides a nice amount of light in the room. This is being used in our great room and is perfect for us.
We just moved to a new home and bought a new metal bed for our guest room (also purchased from Overstock). This lamp matches the bed perfectly. So in that regard, I am very pleased with it. It's not an OMG lamp but a good, basic lamp. The pull chains are a plus for us.
Lamps look great but the best part is you can use (2) 100 watt bulbs which is great for my aging eyes. The other thing I absolutely love is the pull chain. Never had that and always hated reaching up blindly into a lamp. Wish there was a floor lamp of the same style. You won't regret your purchase and the price was what attracted me.
First this is NOT BRONZE it's BROWN! Every thing went fine until I tried to screw the Finial on above the lampshade. It was drilled off center AND the screw isn't straight but drilled at an angle so the Finial is crooked. No matter how much I fiddled with it it goes on crooked and since it has a flat top design it looks off. Don't know at this point if I want to fuss with a return.
We purchased this lamp to replace an old 3-way bulb lamp. The switch kept burning out which is why I picked out the pull chain lamp. It looks beautiful; give off great light.

I have been looking for lamps with pull chains and they are not all that easy to find! I came across these and thought I had hit the pot of gold. They aren't as nice as I would have liked but I kept them anyway. The rubbed oil bronze finish just looks dark brown instead of bronzed. On one lamp, the top was slightly askew which bothers me a bit, but it seemed like too much trouble to box it back up and send it back. The shades are cheap, but I can always look for replacements if I want. The framework on the shades is bright yellow gold - I had assumed it would be the same color as the base. These were not real high priced, so I would say I got what I paid for.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was a little darker in reality than what it looked on the website.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The lamps look pretty good for the price. The shades are not very nice and the base on one of the lamps looks a little out of alignment. I was a little dissappointed with the quality, but not enough to return them.

This is a nice lamp - it's sturdy and the shade is not one of those collapsible ones. I wanted a better reading lamp and this lamp is very good for that.

Bought these to put in our newly decorated bedroom. Measure carefully if using in a bedroom - these are full-sized lamps. The metal is not flimsy - very substantial and well made. They arrived in perfect condition in very well packed boxes , and were easy to assemble. The lamps are darker than how my computer showed the picture, but I always keep that possibility in mind when I order anything online. My only comment would be to expand on the color description - it's listed as antique bronze, but the 'antique' part of it is more of a distressed effect that doesn't show in the picture. It's hard to see when the lamps are off, but when on is noticeable. It's not awful and I still would have bought and kept the lamps, but this was the one surprise when I saw them. Love the shades, the finial and the style. Most of all though, we love the pull chain on/off! Hadn't seen that since my childhood and they're awesome as bedside lamps. However, the cat loves those too - still trying to teach him to stop batting them around.
