I moved recently and discovered that my bedroom did not have sufficient lighting. Even with bedside tables, I could not see well enough to read in bed or to read/watch films on my tablet. I had floor lamps in my living room, but they cost each about $$$. I wanted something less expensive. I paid just a little over $$$ with tax for this lamp. (I purchased only one.) When I saw this floor lamp, I knew immediately that it would work. I love the finish (I decorate with nickel and silver, so the brushed steel works well), and I really appreciate that I can turn on one or both bulbs to read--just by pulling one or both chains. I use 75 watt bulbs in each side. The lamp arrived quickly, was easy to put together (although the main part into which I twisted parts together is slightly askew), and looks great. Delivery was fast and the item parts were well packaged. Directions were straightforward, but I did not need them. For those purchasing the lamp, you will have to remove the finial to position the shade appropriately on the lamp and then just screw it back on.
If you don't tighten enough then it could look a bit crooked. You've got to make sure they are fully tightened. Overall, it's a beautiful lamp. I got lots of compliments on it. It looks better in person and more expensive than what I payed for.
LOVE THIS FLOOR LAMP!!!!!!! Original purchase was as a gift to my mother. Little did I know, but my sister had already ordered, received, and wrapped for the same occasion, the exact same lamp. Mom received both lamps, and loved them so much, she kept BOTH of them! Why, you may ask? The craftsmanship is beautiful: good base weight without being too light as to feel it would tip over; 2 pull chains to provide choices on amount of light needed for one's task; pull chains are easily found, as they extend about 3 inches from the bottom of the shade, and a generally classic look to compliment most any decor. As a result of this purchase, my sister and I have ordered ones for our own use! Now, I am searching for the same style and make in table lamps. I plan to purchase 2 of them!
I was a little hesitant about the sturdiness and quality of the lamp before i purchased it; but Overstock reviewers were correct- this lamp is very sturdy and great quality. If i purchased this same lamp or similar in the store, it would have been a lot more $$. This lamp is Definitely is worth the Overstock price. I would defintely buy it again
We bought this lamp in September for our son's apartment in Cambridge. It was $95. The lamp looked very nice in his apartment when we visited in November, so we decided to buy him a second one to match. But the price went up to $118... we bought it anyway because it was a gift for our child, but I was a little upset that OS couldn't give us the old price!!! We're such loyal customers (we furnished son's entire apartment with OS purchases); and we've been furnishing our second home also with OS purchases), I thought at least OS would honor the old price. Oh well...
First of all, this lamp is shorter than I'd realized. I was looking for a pair of bright lamps for my living room when I found these, and was delighted that it took 2 100 watt bulbs. Plenty bright, right? However, Overstock only managed to send me one, and did not notify me that the other would not be shipped--why would I want only one of these, or maybe they could have given me the option to choose. Anyway, set the lamp and it is too short to spread much light in the room but also, sitting under the lamp it is much too bright to glance around the room comfortably--it's like looking at the sun when your eye wanders over to the lamp. This is being returned.
