My husband and I recently purchased a new home that hadn't been updated since the 80's. The bathrooms, in particular, were in desperate need of a facelift so we bought a few of these fixtures for that purpose. They provide a modern yet elegant touch and we're very happy with them.

This is the second time I have bought a Safavieh area rug at Overstock. I am so very pleased as I waited for something special for a year! This area rug is a lovely sky blue with ivory interspersed and I have placed it a blue bedroom and it looks great. It has a nice feel underfoot and I think I will get a rug pad to give it even more "spring" and stability. It is 80%wool and 20% cotton as stated on the back of the rug. It is not a thick rug but it is not flimsy. I highly recommend it if you like quality and something different from the plethora of unattractive rugs in many places.

We had priced bamboo blinds (exactly same pattern as these, but different color) for our sliding glass doors and kitchen window from several sites and big box stores. Unfortunately, the "ready to hang" big box store blinds weren't long enough, and the custom blind option from brick and mortar stores and sites were outrageously priced. Luckily, we stumbled upon these blinds at Overstock and it saved us hundreds of dollars! Our only dilemma was that O.co had the right width, but what they had in stock was too long. Problem was solved when we learned that shortening the bamboo blinds is a pretty easy task, so we took the plunge and ordered 3 of these blinds and shortened them to the perfect length, hung them, and voila, custom blinds at a huge savings!!! They look fantastic! We struggled with the decision about what color to get since we have dark wood furniture in our living room and kitchen, and although the color of these blinds is light...closer to pine wood, they do have flecks of dark brown throughout, so they actually tie in well with dark brown wood furnishings, yet lighten the look of our home. The blinds look beautiful, let in the sunshine, and allow you to see outside, but they kill the glare. They give such a warm beautiful feel to our spaces. We love them. The only con, is that the large blinds, even after being shortened to 80" are quite heavy, making them a bit difficult to raise. Not a big deal, but we do wish the pulleys were a little smoother. If you have honey or light wood, they would match perfectly, and if you have darker woods like we do, they blend nicely too. Go for it, and save yourself a bundle!

Came back to write a glowing review of this fireplace and Overstock. Unfortunately, I get here to find that the fire place is being sold for about $80 cheaper now than it was when I bought it a month ago. Fireplace gets 5 stars...Overstock gets 3 stars. Very easy to assemble. If you've ever done a desk, dresser, etc...you should have no problem. The plastic pieces that are used to cover the cam locks are pretty well useless. Might consider getting a small can of ivory paint to blend them in to the fireplace a little bit. Definitely have your cordless drill charged up and a phillips screwdriver attachment. A couple of spots it was helpful to have a compact drill but not totally necessary. Without the aid of the drill, this assembly will take quite a bit longer and also give your wrist and forearms a good workout. Overall, very pleased with construction, quality, and look of this fireplace. Considering buying a second for another room in our house. Hopefully I can get it at its cheapest price next time.

It's always hard to know exactly what color such items really are because of color variations and settings on monitors. This carpet is a kind of subtle green-blue -- it's not a blue-gray (how it appears on my monitor) or a "true blue" color. The quality seems good (80% wool & 20% poly), the pile is fairly thick. The color is fine with our decor, so I did not return it.

We were not prepared to buy a new sofa but needed to make our old one a bit more presentable, so ordered this slipcover. The sofa has 3 fixed seat-back cushions and 3 removable seat cushions (2 of which are L-shaped) and is about 80" long. Overall, we like the fact that this slipcover set was relatively inexpensive, offers a separate cover for the seat, and we like the color (sage green) and washability of the fabric very much. From a distance the couch looks a lot better. But we wish there was more stretch to the material - a feature we might have gotten in a competitor's slipcover. There is a LOT of extra fabric that must be tucked in periodically. My only other complaint is that the skirt lifts up on the corners - which allows the old skirt to show - due to the elastic binding meant to hold the arm fabric in place. No amount of pulling or adjusting has been able to fix that. So - we didn't dislike it enough to return it and pay more for a cover that might address those 2 issues, but wanted to be sure to inform others of our experience so they can make a well-informed decision.

My biggest concern with purchasing drapes online was how the color would compare in person and would they look right with my odd sized window. The color is pretty true to what is shown online. I chose the burgundy and it appears a bit more red in person than on my screen, which I'm very pleased about. There are 3 widths in this particular drape: regular = 52" w, wide = 80" w, and extra-wide = 100" w. I chose the wide width (middle size) because my window opening was 120" and I didn't want a lot of extra material covering the window opening when the drapes are open. They completely darken my living room and they already cut down on the road noise. I am very happy with my purchase and would get these again. I would have rated these 5 stars, but they have grommets, which I did not want.

Words can't explain the beauty of this crystal chandelier. Delivery was fast, got in 4 days and 3 out of 6 bulbs were missing but overstock people were awesome and credited me $$ for missing bulbs when they couldn't send some. It took me some time to figure out what to do so we can hang on crystals (80) and don't hit our head while installing in your ceiling. You get around 80 crystals packed in separate small box and they are real glass not plastic with fine rings like you get with key chains. To my experience you should 1st ring all the crystals and keep aside in a box and hang them later to the small metal threads hanging with a loop at the ends from the main metal base once it is fixed in the ceiling. Just thread in these rings attached to the crystal balls to the loop one by one and it will save your head banging with those glass crystals and won't be heavy to carry up high to your ceiling. Whenever my friends visit us they just don't forget to praise this beautiful chandelier. Extremely happy with my purchase.

I LOVE these curtains. I have 3 sets now, one in our bedroom, one in our daughter's bedroom, and a 3rd set is being used to cover a doorway. These curtains look great and make a room VERY dark.

I love these well-made, attractive curtains as well as the ones with grommets. I have the curtains in different colors throughout my home. The curtains have helped me save hugely on my heating & cooling bills. (One other trick that my husband & I started doing is, for the rooms that we rarely use, we've put styrofoan insulation pieces in the windows. You can get them from Home Depot & just cut them to size. It's easier if you use two or three of the approximately 3"X4' pieces.) Our older, not-energy-efficient home is over 2200 square feet, but our electric-NG bill now averages $80 per month.

Ok. Here are a few tips to help you get the best out of your drapes. Be prepared to use the services of a seamstress to make sure all of your panels work well together. That should not deter you from purchasing these beautiful panels. You will still save loads of money in the long run. We purchased four 4 - 50 inch wide panels for our living room and took them to our seamstress who subsequently sewed them together to create 2 - 100 inch wide panels. One of the panels was a few inches longer than the other 3 and she took care of that as well. All for approximately $80. So we still ended up with a set of panels for $500 (alterations included) that we could have easily paid $1200 for when we conducted comparison shopping. These panels are lined nicely with weights in the bottom. You will not be disappointed. Buy now before they sell out!

It is basically a mini arc lamp as it is only 70 inches and not 80 as per the description. Therefore, it would be good for smaller sized furniture and rooms. The quality of the product is good but there is no dimmer even though this was stated in the description. This is why I rated it only 3 stars.

I looked several places to find the perfect fixture to remodel our 80's style 1/2 bath. My sister-in-law, who is an amazing decorator and has a knack for beautifying anything, came across this light fixture on Overstock and recommended it. It only took 3 days from the time I ordered it to receive it in the mail. The fixture is absolutely gorgeous! It makes our 1/2 bathroom look spectacular. It was packaged extremely well, had easy instructions, and a cinch to install. I want to walk in that bathroom all the time just to look at the light fixture! I highly recommend this fixture, it will light up your world (well bathroom) and put a smile on your face! :)

I searched all OVER the place for just the right type of slipcover to get for the ugliest couch on the planet (purchased at an estate sale for $20). The couch was super comfy but really ugly and kinda scratchy. I was a little concerned in getting the green that it'd be too light of a color to completely cover the dark colors of the couch (early 80s collage w/brown and orange). It covered it perfectly and feels so soft - our couch is not like a sleeping pill - you can't help but fall asleep on the thing. Only semi-bummer of it is that the cushions of the couch are very thin and so there's a lot of extra fabric where you'd normally be able to tuck it somewhere. So yeah, it looks like a couch cover, but a very clean one that stays in place really well, even with my 3 year old and 10 month old climbing and jumping all over it. The two-piece was the right choice too, with kids, because if someone spills or anything we can just take off one part of it to wash instead of pulling out the couch and doing the whole thing. Great solution and we couldn't be happier...not to get the burgundy one-piece for the loveseat (can't get a two-piecer for that one cuz of how it's constructed). We'll have a green couch and burgundy loveseat which will tie our decor together really well! And overstock was great on the pricing and shipping cost! This was my first order with them and I now check their site first if I'm looking for something.

I wanted the grommet style to hang in my kitchen - one window and also a sliding door. Used 3 for the 80" sliding door and one for the 40" window above the sink. They look great. I used 2 more in the larger dining room window. I don't have other coverings on the windows and door, as they face our open backyard. I ordered these based on other reviews which stated they were a heavy, sturdy material and I am completely happy with these. They look great. I ordered the pearl white. I would not have been happy with these if they were see-through/flimsy.

This is my third Varaluz purchase and I am a new fan of the brand. I put this in our dining room and it has a modern, elegant, clean presence. The glass fixtures look pretty both on and off. It is a smaller piece, but our room is smaller as well and it fills the space. Easy assembly and fast installation. It takes 3 100W bulbs, so it gives off a tremendous amount of light. I have been replacing the 80's brass light fixtures in our house and it is such a relief to have this light in place -- the dark chrome and mercury glass are an instant update and really make the room feel comfortable and modern. Great brand if you like something a little different than the rest!

Received the rug 3 days after ordering. It weighed a ton (about 80 lbs). It is very soft and plush. My husband was skeptical about ordering a rug online but he raved about it once we got it in the living room. It does shed quite a bit, although I have read that wool rugs shed for the first month or two. It's beautiful, adds some pattern and texture. Great price on Overstock for an 8 x 10 rug of this quality. Love it!!

I give 3 stars because the rug doesn't look the same as on the site. The design is not what you see on the picture. When we opened the package, we thought we got a wrong rug, but then with close examination we realized that it's similar but still not the same. Also there are no gold and sage mentioned in the color description, but instead- greyish blue and dark green. The burgundy is very dark with chocolate undertone. On the rugs tag it's said 80% wool and 20% cotton. This wasn't mentioned in the item description either. All that said, the quality of the rug is very good. It's thick and plush, doesn't shed at all and doesn't have any unpleasant smell. It became perfectly flat the same day we put it. In spite of the wrong colors, it went well with our dining room decor, so we kept it. Bottom line- its very nice and beautiful rag, but be aware that it' s not necessary what you see on the picture.

The curtain is high quality even though it is not lined but the tailor work makes it look like lined. It does block out more sun than the other curtains I bought from local department store (with lined). The reason I return it because 1) the color is kind of darker than I expected. I expect a more neutral color tone that will be easy to match with our furniture and 2) it only has 3 inches back tab. I'm only interested with curtains that can be hung with hooks. If you are looking for something that does black out this one can only be considered 80% of the effect. I also order the ***** stripes series and that definitely blocks out 100%.

I knew from reading the reviews of others that these curtains would be thin and they were. I was glad I had ordered 8 panels (4 pairs) for an 80" window. I actually like the fabric. It hangs well and the color (taupe) was perfect. My problem is the rod pocket size. Our rod is 3/4" and the panels barely slide on. You are unable to move the curtains open and closed without much effort. Clearly these are not the 3" rod pocket as claimed in the description. Because of our concern that the thin fabric may rip with repeated opening and closing, I am going to move the seam to make a bigger rod pocket. We like the fabric and the color so we are keeping them but would not recommend to others.

Love it!!! Was worried about the frosted and not enough light. I had to use 45w it is so bright. What a great update for the 80s brass builder grade fixtures!
