This is a wonderful torchiere lamp that throws off beautiful ambient off-white lighting. The baswe adn poles are metal and the shades are glass. The base is heavy adn the whole lamp looks very expensive/classy. It takes three bulbs- I recommend 60 watt incandescent- the newer corkscrew lightbulbs stick up above the glass shades and do not look good. The only downside is that mine came in packaging that looked like it had been through a shredder and no instructions. Luckily it was not terribly difficult to figure out how to put it together. Well worth the money despite the lack of product information and the poor packaging.

This floor lamp is an excellent value! I've seen lamps like this for $250 at several places. The quality and finish are very nice. The one I received is bronze, not stainless. I kept it because I can use bronze in the space, but it was a surprise. I'm not sure if I had a choice or a mistake was made. I gave it 4 stars because of the color confusion, otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars.

Lamp looks exactly the same as pictured. The ribbed glass shades have little specks in them, making the lamp look more distinctive. The 1 small issue I have is the 3 rods are not perfectly parallel to each other, which makes sense since they are taller rods and there's nothing at the middle or top to keep them from leaning over a little. It's just not something you think about when looking at making a purchase. I've since seen other similar lamps with an added spacer in the middle, but those cost an arm and a leg and truely don't look like they're worth the extra cost. The foot switch is off of a extension cord (it's clear in color, so not that noticeable) about a foot in length. I don't think that was made clear in the description of the lamp. Caught me by surprise since I just assumed the switch is on the base plate. Overall, we are pleased with our purchase. The lamp is quietly elegant without being pretentious. Thanks Overstock.
The order arrived quickly and was packaged very well. There was a minor issue with connecting one of the sections of one of the stands. One would not screw in all the way into the adjacent section, which left a small segment of the silver-colored inner threads visible. The threads appear rather fragile so I was concerned that I would over-tighten and strip them. Ultimately, I was able to reduce the exposed thread segment with further tightening, although not completely. The remaining 1/16-inch will never be noticed. I really like the lamps. They look good and provide the right amount of background light in an otherwise dark area in the living room..
I was a bit disappointed. The style and look of the torchiere is great but the sturdiness is average to poor. The instructions say it takes 20 minutes to assemble and that couldn't possibly be true. It took me 90 minutes. The poles are not as sturdy as they should be. The wires for each lamp are too long and not flexible enough to hide in the poles easily. Over all it's a quality control issue because I bought 2 in the oil rubbed color and the same one in the silver color and they all had the same problem. And try to be careful unpacking because it's so over packed that you practically have to destroy the box and pacing material to get it out. If you want to return it you are out of luck.
My sister helped me put it together and she likes it so much she's going to order one for herself. It's a very nice looking lamp that takes three 100 watt bulbs so really lights up my living room that has no overhead lighting. It's got style without that style being too overwhelming. You do get what you pay for, though, so that one rod, after assembly, tilts a little. If you're at all OCD or particular, that will really bother you. But, lamps like this usually cost a hundred dollars more on other sites. It's really hard to get out of the packaging and be prepared to get foam crumble everywhere. Figuring out how to get the excess cord to fit into the rods is a bit of a challenge.
Excellent lamp. While assembling the lamp we discovered that one shaft member had two female ends whereas a male and female was required. We solved our problem by making the shortest lamp a little shorter by not using the erroneous part. Believe it or not, we really like the end result because it makes the stair step to the top more dramatic. Would definitely recommend. KKV
My new torchiere is simple but elegant.I'm very pleased that I can use up to 3 (100 watt) bulbs,since I had a difficult time finding such a high wattage torchier.The master bedroom that I put it in is large and needed the extra wattage. The lamp is heavy metal and definitely does not look cheap. Great value for the price. The customer service was easy and prompt.
