This lamp was the perfect fit for our living room. We put it behind our sectional in the corner, off to the side. I looked at quite a few arc lamps and this was closest to the look I wanted with the perfect price. The one drawback is that it does not seem all that stable. The lamp pole is held to the base by one very small screw. It tilts forward slightly, but we placed it flush against the back of the couch so it would stand up straighter. Overall, we love the lamp.

I had to return this item. I loved the look of the light, but i struggled endlessly to assemble it. It was an awkward size and the base was heavy to attatch. The bolt's threads were striped, and i just gave up and sent it back.

Unfortunately I had to send the lamp back because it did not hang quite straight. I thought this might be due to the design -- the base was very heavy but the screw holding the arm in seemed short and thus the arm seemed to sag a bit. I absolutely loved the look and was hoping to get a new one sent in case the one I received was defective, but it appears as though the lamp is no longer available.

First off, I would not call the finish on this lamp bronze. It is basically black with a reddish paint hue around the base. and as mentioned in other reviews, the base is needlessly heavy and the single screw in the bottom does not adequately hold the lamp upright. I had to use a washer (not included) to give it more stability. And the worst part of it all, it intermittently works. Set it up yesterday. It did not turn on but then all of sudden did. Used it this morning, but now not working again. Have to return. What a hassle. Do not buy this item.
I purchased this lamp for my living room to put behind our sectional and it works great for our needs. The lamp looks exactly as pictured with the exception of the base. The base is flat, about a centimeter thick and easily fits under our sectional. The on and off switch is not located on the base of the lamp as the description leads you to believe. It is in fact about 8 inches below the actual arch. The shade is darker than I expected but adds to the perfect yellow glow the light gives off. It is perfect for reading or for mood lighting. The quality is great and the lamp looks more expensive than it was. I assembled it alone and it took less than 30 minutes but keeping the cord/wire inside stem was a challenge. I would definitely recommend this lamp.
We liked the lamp, but unfortunately had to return it. The threading on two of the arm parts simply would not screw in together. Either the threading on the inside was incorrect, or the fitting piece was incorrectly cut. After about an hr. of trying to get 2 of the 4 parts together, we gave up and returned the item. Unfortunately, it was then out of stock, so will wait for it to be re-stocked and try one more time. I see that another buyer had the same problem. So, we are not alone in having this issue. Overstock, as usual, was very helpful in arranging the return. Wish we did not have to do this.
This lamp works very well as a side lamp for a chair in our living room used for relaxing and reading. The rustic shade goes well with our decor. Although the lamp isn't taller (it did come as the measurements indicated), it is still a perfect height next to our chair. I wouldn't recommend this lamp for lighting an entire room (shade too dark for that). The construction is average and was very easy to put together. It is also easy to move around as the base isn't so heavy that you need a strong man or a cart to move it. Overall, this lamp looks chic and expensive without the price tag!

There appears to be a knob just below the arc of the lamp in the picture, does this not turn the lamp on and off? The plan is to put this lamp behind a sectional couch which is placed against a wall and switch at the foot of the lamp would definitely not be of any use to me.constance28 on Aug 30, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Hello, angelamydixon. To install this shade, you must place it over the socket and secure it with the included socket ring. Thank you for shopping with us, and have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 21, 2014
What is the measurement of the arc? It looks like the dimensions you list for width/depth are the dimensions of just the shade only, not how far out the shade sticks out from the vertical pole. on Aug 18, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
