I ordered two of these lamps, and glad I did! They are heavy - thus no risk of needless toppling over when a dog or kid bumps into them - and easy to operate with the cool pull chains. No more little knobs that you have to twist that don't work after a while! I would definitely recommend this floorlamp.

I was looking for a lamp that gives a lot of light. Even with only one of the two 100 watt bulbs on, it is very bright. It is very sturdy and stable, unlike many floor lamps. I have no fear of it being easily knocked over. It is very attractive. I bought two and am glad I did. I noted a few scratches on base when I put it together, but not enough to notice from any distance. Lamp was easy to put together.

Overalll, the lamp is of very nice quality. However, the picture shown is deceptive. The shade is not a bright white, the one I received is more of a light, woven khaki. Despite having two 100 watt bulbs, it gives off a very soft light - certainly does not give off enough light to read by, for example. If this had a white shade that was of plain material, it would give off a lot more light. I am satisfied with it for now, but will definitely change out the shade in the future.
Floor lamp came on delivery date. Shade was broken but the lamp was in perfect shape. Overstock sent a replacement shade in 3 days. Color was as described. Very nice double pull chain feature allows one bulb to light or both. Lamp itself could have been a little taller. Overall this was a positive experience first time order for me.
This floor lamp does the job!. It is well made, easy to put together, sturdy, and attractive. It is not flimsy, which I was wanting to avoid at all costs, as I have an active family with children and pets, and I don't need it to fall over if bumped. My favorite feature is the on off pull chain for turning on the lamp. ( no need to fiddle under the shade for the switch) I would have loved to have the option of another neutral color lamp shade. That's the reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
The style was exactly what I wanted. I was really happy to find a lamp that had pull chains as arthritis in my hands makes using twist-type switches very difficult. And it uses two 100 bulbs! I prefer the incandescent bulbs and like lots of reading light. Whee--this one has it!!! I was also very pleased to find the color of both shade and lamp to be as described in the ad. The only negative aspects of my Davies Floor Lamp were (1) the fact that it tilted just a bit. I had to readjust it by standing on the base and pushing the pole ever so gently until it was upright. I measured this by aligning it with a window frame. (2) The decorative top screw which holds the shade in place causes the shade to become lopsided of screwed down securely. But if not, the shade tends to wobble a bit when bumped. Still, I'm very happy with the lamp and would recommend it to anyone else.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was described very well, just what I expected.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The only disappointment I had was that I needed to work on the base a little bit as it tended to lean a bit. Since the lamp was standing alongside a large window frame, it was easy to see the tilt.

My husband is "elderly", should I say clumsy (?) and needs extra light. This lamp is quite sturdy and he can't seem to knock it over. There are two bulbs so he has plenty of light. He is happy with this lamp and you can be sure that I am happy because he is happy! The price was good too.
This is an excellent lamp. I bought three! It's simple stylish, fits in an older style setting or newer setting. The 2 independently switched sockets with the nice shade was key for me. I have a 25W soft white incandescent in one socket and a red fluorescent in the other. So I can select either or both as I desire for late evening lighting. (LED and LCD computer lighting is terrible for the body at night. Google more on that...) This light gives me what I wanted to get healthier lighting in the late evening.)
The general appearance and sturdiness of the lamp is good and what I expected. My complaint has to do with the finish, if you zoom in on the picture, the lamp is clearly a metal finish, the description states it is a bronze lamp when in reality it is painted with a brown finish. Very misleading and certainly takes away from the quality of the lamp. Disappointing
