I ordered 2 lamps, and although the one we assembled is fine, it just does not fit well decor-wise in the room we wanted them in. It is large, but not high enough to be useful as a bedside lamp for me (my fault for not measuring correctly before ordering). I will keep one (to give away), and send the other one back. However, it is a good, reasonably priced lamp for the right type of space and I would recommend it.

I wanted to love this lamp, but it's pretty awful. The base pictured (small, thick) is NOT what is sent (a large, thin/flat plate). The two pieces that form the arm DO NOT SCREW completely together. As another review noted, the pieces just do not fit-- with pliers we could get it the two pieces to within about 1/3" apart, leaving the bright silver threading showing. The shade material and texture are also different than what was pictured-- still nice enough, but not what was shown. Very disappointing, and will have to return. What a pain, and still no lamp for where we needed it.
This was the perfect table lamp I was searching for to sit on a small end table beside my recliner/loveseat in the sunroom. The arm can swing over the loveseat for reading or swing back in place on the table. I have lots of drapes in the sunroom that I open and close daily. The lamp had to be able to swing out of the way to get to the drape (small space was needed for this.) It looks much better than a floor lamp which was too cumbersome to reach my drape. The shade is a very nice tan/khaki color that matches another rattan lamp I have in the same room. Shade is also high quality compared to some. It's great that you can use a high powered bulb for reading in this lamp. So many lamps only take weak bulbs which make it difficult to see to read. I happen to have several metal sculptures of sun and moon in this room, and the oil rubbed bronze finish matches perfectly. The base actually sits flat on the table and is rather thin but strong. I have a nice glass candle vase that I place right on top of the base of the lamp. It's perfect to add color. I am extremely pleased with this lamp. You cannot beat Overstock.com for shipping (free this time) and service. Lamp was well packaged; I put it together in about 60 seconds.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was exactly as shown only prettier. Oil rubbed bronze is very nice quality.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appears to be a high quality lamp with a well weighted bottom for security.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate description.
Nice lamp. Fairly easy to put together, and it's a nice lamp for read. The only minus I can think of is that the base is quite large (bigger than it appears in the picture) so it takes up a lot of space where I might normally have pictures or other items. I bout the lamp along with a wonderful rug from Overstock. Added some new throw pillows and a few other items and it changed the entire vibe of the room.
