Received the lamps yesterday. Very well packaged. Easy to put together. Using for bedroom end tables. They are heavy which I love. The color on mine are more brown with gray through out. Being they are natural stone understandable that the color varies. Shades complement very well. Excellent product for the price.
I got two of these for a beach rental house. They are very good looking. I love the real slate and the rectangular shade. I have them on a console table behind a leather sectional. The only problem was when I turned them on the shades no longer matched. One was distinctly darker than the other even though they looked the same when the lights were off. Also the slate on one had flaked off more than I liked but I was going to overlook that. I called O and asked for another shade to be sent. There was a lot of confusion and multiple phone calls to explain to them that I could not return my shade until I received the replacement because I needed to see which of my shades it matched. Finally they sent me two new lamps. And guess what. We now had three different shade colors when lit. But two did match and I swapped out the one lamp base for a better one so it all ended well after all.
My living room is in a nautical/contemporary motif. And was in a much needed pick me up. Replacing my tired old brass lamps with these contemporary slate lamps not only brightens the room but, adds a modern twist. I love the earthiness of the slate. Absolutely beautiful!
Bought a pair of these lamps for the credenza in my husband's office. The look heavy and masculine but still have a relatively small footprint. They look as pictured - the colors are just as seen online. The shade is nicely textured, but would prefer there be no sheen. Overall, though, great lamps for a good price.
Gorgeous lamps.....heavy, substantial, solid. They look very expensive, and I have them in a room with expensive art and finishes. They fit in perfectly. The color of the slate is even prettier than the photo. The shade is beautiful, too. Can't believe the price for how nice they actually are!
This lamp is made of natural slate, which has a grey-green color with rust-colored veining. It's very attractive. Since it is a natural stone, there is variation and unevenness. The mounting on the base is not perfectly symmetrical- it's a little crooked owing to the cut of the stone. I ordered two, and one of them was noticeably uneven where it was attached to the base, so I returned it for another. The return and replacement process worked the best of any company I've used. Overstock's customer support rep and process were great. The lamps look very nice. They are quite heavy, making them very stable. The shade is nicely made and looks attractive. It takes a three-way bulb; we are using 3-say CFL's in ours. I like the look of the rectangular shade, but, unlike a round one, they can be knocked off-kilter by bumping them. I'm very happy with the purchase.
I searched a lot of sites before finding this lamp. Its a little bigger than I had anticipated, but sets my living room space! The colors in the stone will compliment just about any color fabric or pillow. I now wish I would have bought 2. I love, love, my new lamp!
