I LOVE this lamp. I had more than a little concern that it would be too garish, but if you are looking for something that makes a statement without being too kitschy this could fill the bill. The shade is a gorgeous black, but when the light is on it glows a lovely goldish/bronze due to the lining. Only concern is that my lamp also had a minor dent in it (as did those of another reviewer). Luckily I can get over it. Packaging was excellent so I don't think it occurred in transit. Also, delivery was super fast--within 2 days of ordering.

I was hesitant to purchase this lamp initially as I had concerns that the faux coral would look too brassy so I allowed myself a few weeks with the lamps in my living space before making a final decision. While the color of the coral is not as muted in tone as the antiqued brushed brass based, it is subtle enough to have a classic look. I may consider hand brushing a deeper burnished gold paint on some sections to deepen tone, but overall I am very pleased with the lamp. I purchased two and feel they are worth the price point. The shade is gorgeous and lined with a beautiful gold fabric. With a 100 watt bulb it offers great illumination which was another concern I had given the black shade. The stacked antique brass and crystal base is very glamourous and the crystal will have a nice reflective quality when the lamp is placed atop a medium console chest in front of a mirror. The same look will be replicated on the opposite side of the couch to give balance to the room. I did change out the coral finial for a simple finial cap in brushed brass as I felt the coral was too overwhelming for the lamp and detracted from the elegance of it. Not too heavy but definitely substanial and a larger-sized lamp. Only gave 4 stars due to the fact that the bases on both lamps I orderd had MINOR dents but nothing that anyone but the homeowner would likely notice. Packaging was very good.
I love this lamp! It looks very nice and complements my room. If you're looking for a fun, but sophicated lamp this is it!

I love this lamp.. not too large, not too small. It is fragile, the lamp itself arrived in perfect condition, but the finial was broken. I called customer service and it was replaced very quickly. The black shade diffuses the light beautifully. It is exactly how it is described. BEAUTIFUL.
"I love this lamp. It is elegant in a beachy kind of way.

I bought this lamp to match another I had bought at a high end store about a year ago. This one was about 25% less than that one which was on sale at the time. Price aside, these are fabulous looking lamps. Right on trend with the reds, golds, blacks and neutral colorways so popular right now. Plus, since the shade are rectangular, even though the lamps have a big presence, they take up less room on the credenza because they can be situated more closely to the wall than a lamp with a round shade. The black silk shade is lined with a gold fabric so that when lit, the bulbs glow gently through the shade and cast light up above the shade and down onto the coral and crystal base. If you are planning to get these for reading lamps. they probably would not be best because much of the light from the bulbs is hidden by the black shade. But for ambiance in a living room or bedroom, they can't be beat. Well done, Overstock!

If a lamp can be sexy, then this is it! After completing remodeling our beach condo, we were needing to replace all our lamps (not an easy undertaking!). When I saw this lamp, I just fell in love with it and told my husband, "I'm buying this lamp even if you don't like it." Even though he saw it online, he literally gasped when we pulled it from the box. We placed it on our bedroom dresser which has a "Tommy Bahama" type design and it just sets tone for the master bedroom. Please notice the two-level base and then you have that gorgeous golden coral with black shade topped with a small golden coral finial. Stunning!! The gold coral is not cheap looking - just lovely. I highly recommend this lamp and have to say that Overstock.com has a wonderful selection.

I'm still loving this lamp purchased four years ago. I first spotted it on a designer showcase website listed at a much higher price point, so I was thrilled when I found it on overstock - totally worth the price and looks great on teh corner of my desk
In the photos it looks like the real deal but once I received it and set it next to my original lamp the differences were obvious. Different lampshade let light filter through. Lampshade not gold on inside. Different base and the resin coral was not the same quality as original. I guess I got what I paid for but buyer beware.
Wasn't sure about this lamp -- today, even the most 'glamorous' lamps are poorly made. This model is well crafted in a way that lends value to the moderate price point, and looks great. The texture of the faux coral is quite 'lifelike,' and can be quite sharp in places to the touch. In short, it's exactly as it appears in the listing photos.
These look great. They look like coral painted gold. Shades are expensive looking. Base solid. they look like the picture. So if you don't like something different - you would not want to get these. But if you are looking for something different - these fit the bill.
It's a WOW. Thank You, Overstock, for offering it at an excellent price. The over-the-top gold coral is a perfect foil for tthe sedate black shade - - which of course, is lined in gold. Lamps are jewelry for the home andt this delivers.
