We've hung this so it's protected from the elements. It's a bit pricey, but sturdy enough for my purpose, and it's whimsical & colorful.

I love it! It is the perfect wall art for my living room at a very reasonable price!

Love these! I had a hard time finding them in the right color, and Overstock had them. When my daughter arrived home, they were the first thing she noticed. The red matches other decorative elements in my living room, and these pillows make the room pop!

It is so terribly made, it doesn't even try to be nice. Let's start with the best part, first. The firebox. Visually it makes an attractive approximation of a fire. It never looks real, but doesn't look cheesy. The compliments end there. The worst part is the wood mantle. It's so bad, I'll cover it at the end. That is, if you're still reading by then . . . Firebox: The fan/blower in the firebox sounds as though it is suspended on raw metal, as in no bearings. It makes disconcerting rattling and brushing noises. These noises don't resemble soothing in any way shape or form. They sound like the blower is about to fall out. You should hear nothing but the whooshing sound of air. The rattling is so loud, it actually drowns out any sound of moving air. Nowhere in the instructions or on the realflame.com website is there a rating for heat output or power consumption. I can tell you why. Had they supplied a rating, you wouldn't have bought it. It's that poor. Think of it this way: It runs on a standard 120V / 15A outlet. Using standard electrical resistance type elements, it will put out no more heat than a hair dryer, as a hair dryer maxes out the outlet. Just imagine heating a room with a hair dryer. Had they used something like ceramic heating elements or another technology, it might have been a reasonable amount of heat. Even compared to a hair dryer, this realflame heater can't keep up. Plan on standing right next to it, else you'll never know it's on. It's funny, too, because there are caution stickers all over it, warning of the heat. Really? If it ever got hot, the stickers would burn right on the metal casing. They don't. Nothing ever gets even hot enough to be uncomfortable to the touch. Sure, if you restricted the airflow it would be dangerous, but in normal use it's never more than warm. Wood mantel: The best thing I can say is about the color, and it's not good. It's far darker in person than in the picture. Know this up front. Pecan? Looks nothing like pecan. Their pecan finish is the color of dark mahogany. Therefore, I can't even imagine just how dark their dark mahogany is. The two corner vertical pieces of the mantel that look like nice heavy pieces of wood? They're an illusion. Rather than being the wood posts they try to visually evoke, each one only has two sides, and each side made of thin partial board bolted together at the front corner. Like an L-shape. The side pieces are so badly warped, that even using the supplied bolts and brackets, you can't get them to straighten out and line up with the front pieces. Therefore the corner has a gap where the two pieces meet, from top to bottom. Not attractive. Cabinet makers use cabinet-grade MDF (medium density fiberboard) on select panels because hardwood will bow, twist, warp, and expand/contract unevenly. So, certain pieces should be MDF with a veneer because MDF is prized for it's stability of shape. In a mantel, it should be all hard wood. This is not. This is 100% MDF with a veneer. The MDF used is such low grade, it twists, bows, and warps. That's right, the material known for it's flatness and stability has warped and twisted. And, far worse than any piece of hard wood would have. The fasteners (bolts and brackets) used to assemble the 11 pieces that make up the mantel are good. Yet, you can't screw bolts into MDF, they would instantly strip out. So, threaded metal inserts are pressed into the MDF for the bolts to screw into. The threaded inserts are so cheap, when you attempt to tighten the bolts, the threaded inserts just pull out of the MDF. All of the cosmetic pieces are bolted to each other, even if they're merely cosmetic. The only structural pieces in the entire mantel are the two vertical strips that the firebox bolts to. However, rather than bolt those two structural pieces to the rest of the MDF, they're nailed with the smallest brad nails I have ever seen. They must be about 24 gage, they only protrude about 1/4" into the next piece of wood, and there are hardly any of them used. It's a joke. The cosmetic pieces are bolted together while the structural pieces are poorly tacked in place. The top horizontal part of the mantel has trim all around it, secured with the same tiny brad nails. When I attempted to bolt the top onto the rest of the mantel, rather than close the gap between the two pieces, the brad nails gave way and the trim pieces fell off, leaving the top piece just sitting there with nothing to secure it. All of the through-bolts in the mantel, save two, go through 2 pieces of wood. Those other two go through 3 pieces of wood. Wouldn't you think they would provide two bolts longer than the rest? They didn't. No surprise, those last two bolts are too short. They can't even reach through far enough to get threaded into the threaded insert. Again, these two secure the top of the mantel. So, of the four bolts securing the top of the mantel, two are too short, and the other two screw into tacked on trim pieces that have broken free. Packaging and defects: At the factory one of the front pieces was damaged. It had to be at the factory because it was all sealed in thin foam wrapping paper that was undamaged. Yet, it passed inspection and was put into the package. Another piece was damaged during shipment, and NOT by the shipper. It was damaged because it was improperly packed. See, all the pieces are flat. They are laid in the box and separated by thin foam wrapping. They're all different lengths, as well. Yet, there are no foam inserts to accommodate the different lengths of the pieces. So, once packaged up and sent on it's way, the short pieces inside the box are free to slide around and smash into other pieces while in transit. I just can't comprehend how anything costing nearly $500 could be so poorly packaged. Even the cardboard was thin single layer. The firebox? It's package was double corrugated cardboard with thick foam supports. The firebox is metal. You would think realflame would have protected the delicate fragile wood as well or better, not less. If you want one of these, don't plan on using it as a heater. Just turn on the fake flame and appreciate the faux fire image. If you're going to do that, you can easily get a screen saver for your computer that does the same thing for a fraction of the cost.

I bought these so my husband could have some fun decorating the christmas tree with ornaments featuring his favorite team. I was pleasantly surprised at how attractive, cheery, and actually pretty they were, even for someone who is not particular about the sports or team element. They are clearly well-made. The colors are vivid, the ornaments are shiny and eye-catching without looking like cheap baubles. They are a nice change from your run-of-the-mill usual christmas ornaments. We will definitely save them for future christmas tree decorating because they look like they are made to last. They are a nice little christmas extra for a sports fan in the house to contribute something to the christmas tree decoration and have fun doing it.

I've had this fireplace for almost 2 years now and it still looks as beautiful as it did the first day I took it out of the box. It is a very classy conversation piece that not only is aesthetically pleasing but also provides a graceful ambience with candles or gel fuel. I personally prefer the candles over the gel fuel because of the characteristics the candles take on while burning and while dormant. It's more unpredictable, and to me, that's more appealing. I had it in NYC indoors for over a year and it's currently in FL on the balcony and has done exceptionally well with the elements. I spend about 2 minutes a week touching up the glass and the chrome to keep it looking flawless. You will not regret this purchase.

OK, first off let me say that this rug retails for almost 50% more than it's priced on overstock. which is still a bit to shell out for a 3x6 wooden mat. It is just gorgeous. I was concerned about the color, it is not overly dark (not wenge-finish dark) but it doesn't match my warmer toned walnut & teak finishes in the bathroom; no matter, it's neutral enough and too cool to return - definitely a conversation-starting design. There is also a nice range among the wooden disks of lights and darks. It fits under my door (score!) and it truly no higher than the .25-.33". As it's indoor-outdoor safe, I have it in my bathroom - but it is, being wood, obviously not soft underfoot, and being sort of an open weave will take a little getting used to (I just put it down and find myself wanting slippers when I stand on it). The label notes that left to the elements it will weather to a silvery gray - fyi. I love it so much I'm trying to hunt down the matching bath mat.

I must say that I fell in love with this the moment I turned it on. It took my husband a couple hours to set up, but when all was said and done, gorgeous. My mother-in-law came over and just LOVED it. So, guess what? We bought her the same one for Christmas. The heating element works great and I really love the cozy feeling.

Wanted to get 2 medium-sized "greens" for large pots that frame our oversized front door, but not too tall to interfere with the sidelites. Because of the covered entryway, water from rain and inclement weather is not a concern for us, though it would need to be a consideration for an exterior area that is open to the elements (would NOT recommend for other than interior use in most applications.) These bamboo knock-offs are perfect for our need. A quick spritz with silk plant cleaner now and then and they look great without the need to constantly check the soil for 'watering'. Previous Summers have meant too many hours trying to keep ferns or pots of assorted flowers cared for, and an issue when we would go away for vacation. This year, problem solved!!

This sign looks exactly as pictured and I couldn't be happier! It look great hanging next to our front door. I can't comment on how it will respond to the outside elements, but I couldn't be any more pleased with my purchase. As always, quick delivery from Overstock! I'll be shopping again.

This was the perfect piece for my living room! I had a small space between the couch and fireplace that looked a little empty, but wasn't big enough for a piece of furniture. This tall, narrow floor vase is a nice accent that doesn't overwhelm the space. Provides color without being too bright or busy.

This would have been a great fireplace if it didn't arrived chipped in 3 places (one about the size of a nickle and on top), and almost falling out of the box on one end, due to bottom of box heavily damaged/ripped. It was left in front of garage door exposed to the elements on the day of a snowstorm. I thought about sending it back, but the package was so huge, and I may have to repackage due to box damaged, so not worth the hassle. It's just for the family room anyway, so it wasn't that bad. But definitely not worth the money I paid for it. Plus, all the hardware were mixed together in one bag. Shelves didn't have any "letter" labels, considering the instructions just had pictures and letters. It almost made me cry, because I thought I wouldn't be able to put it together. It took me and my husband an hour to figure out where things went. Never again would I order "assemby needed" furnitures from Overstock. Very disappointed!!!!

Mirror came and was broken because it was made of plastic. I planned on putting in my powder room but now it's in my master closet, didn't want to bother to send it back...too much of a hassle. It was okay for the price.

The wreath arrived quickly and in excellent condition. It is really pretty -the colors and foliage are realistic. The wreath is 20 inches and full enough. Some wreaths that I have ordered do not look full enough when hung on a door. This wreath looks really good on my front door. My door is on a covered porch so it is protected from the elements. I would recommend this wreath to a friend.

I purchased two of these to use on either side of my fireplace. After some initial fluffing and arranging they look good and have withstood animals and people bumping around them. They worked for me to add a little greenery to a big open space and have "weathered" well against the human and animal elements of my home.

After seeing this in my neighbor's house, I decided to buy one for a friend as a 5th anniversary gift since the element that represents a 5th wedding anniversary is wood. She loved it and said it was the prettiest anniversary gift she received.

The wall sconce arrived in excellent condition..no broken or missing pieces. The sconce is really lovely and I like how the metal holders fold up when there are no candles in it. The gold color is not bright or shiny..more of an antique gold mat understated. I think it is an excellent quality item for the price.

Was looking for a bronze piece to give to my husband for our 8th anniversary as we buy traditional gifts...this was not only bronze but also had the "8" element as well, albeit sideways...It is a nice size and is a sweet piece. I really like it and so did he!

We wanted a tree that didn't have a large base to fit a smaller space and one with a rustic feel; nothing typical. I wanted a tree that had flocking and I love the pinecones. I didn't give it the highest rating because it is not very full throughout and needs a fair amount of ornaments to make it fuller and not wimpy. I put burlap ribbon around the tree and a burlap bow on top to enhance the rustic appeal.

I have a multi-colored sofa that has the same colors as these pillows. They are the perfect accent! The colors pick up elements of the sofa while the leaves give the pillows some tactile whimsy. Great purchase.

I have told friends about this fireplace. Do not hesitate -- it is very impressive and I absolutely love it. I did find that you don't have to light all three lighting elements -- wall gets hot. I find that even lighting one element is very dramatic. It crackles like a fireplace and throws off some heat. You will not regret ordering this fireplace.

The ratings are composed of two parts: age-appropriateness and content descriptors. This article answers some of the most frequently asked questions about video game ratings.
