Yes it is somewhat darker than you might expect from the picture Yes the instructions that came with it were for a different lamp Yes it is quite lovely, was not hard to mount, and gives a soft glow in the space where we mounted it I am happy w my purchase
I highly recommend this fixture! I purchased this for my office that is painted red and it looks awesome. This is so worth the price and is very unique. Easy to assemble. I have purchased many times from Overstock and will continue to do so.
I love this light fixture. I did have a professional install it, so I can't really tell you much about the installation personally, although he did not seem to have any difficulty. It is a gorgeous fixture and when lit looks wonderful. I highly recommend this fixture as I do the majority of purchases I make from Overstock.com.
This was the perfect finishing touch to a bedroom redecoration project. The light fixture definitely ads so much ambiance to the room. It needs a higher wattage bulb than I put in (2 x 55 watts) in order to project much light, but I don't mind the low light feature in this room. It is well made and arrived well packaged, so breakage during shipping was not a problem.
The lamp looks beautiful in my front hallway. We were able to use parts of the fixture it replaced so installation was fairly easy. Some screws were too short but a trip to the hardware store remedied that. The colors are more green than blue but that worked well with my color scheme. Dragonflies are red and when lit, are vibrant. A great accent piece - hanging from the ceiling securely, it doesn't matter that the shade is not tightly fixed into position because no one will disturb it. once it's in place.
I bought this light about 5 years ago and we still love it. I thought I'd chime in (finally) because of its size/lighting. I originally bought it for a bedroom but it did not give off enough light so we put it in the small hallway to the garage door and it works perfect. This wasnt a problem for us as we were building a house and had an alternative place to put it.
I love the look of this light fixture, but we have been struggling to install it for over a week. None of the hardware that comes with it seems to work. It comes with two sets of screws: one is too short, the other too long. The bracket included doesn't seem to fit the light fixture. We've brought it into our local big box hardware store and they recommended a different bracket, but that doesn't seem to fit into our wire box in our ceiling. They also didn't carry screws in the same diameter that's needed for th fixture. It's infuriating because I really want it to work.
This is a nice looking lamp that is better for rewiring to use on a table than something that should hang from the ceiling. When I tried to hang it on the ceiling I had a lot of issues with the screws that were provided not being long enough.
Definitely not a boring light fixture. My husband and I put this dragonfly light in a grandchild's bedroom so that he'd have something more interesting to look at when he's in bed gazing up at the ceiling. It looks just like the picture and is nice and solid. But it did not come with any instructions at all, so it was a good thing that we had experience from installing light fixtures in the past. It gives very subdued light, so if you want to read, you'll need another lamp.
This fixture was much more than the picture on line. I have recommended this site to all my friends. Product was better than I had anticipated and the price was excellent. Delivery was fast and the fixture was not something I had found in a store. Very Unique and beautiful for my foyer.
This lamp is beautiful, however, it was originally wired as a table lamp and it need to be rewired to become a ceiling lamp. Also, it is extreemly heavy- too heavy for the base that comes with it. It will not support its own weight- we needed to buy an additional brace from a hardware store to support its weight while hanging from our ceiling joists. Also, it is NOT a square lamp as the picture shows- however the demensions listed are accurate. It is a long skinny rectangle. After we re-wired it and installed the brace, it really is beautiful- I would say worth the excellent price if you are handy.
