I read all the reviews very carefully before purchasing and of course had to check out the other store's light that is identical before buying. I can tell you - YES it looks exactly the same for half the price. I bought 2 of these to go over my new kitchen island and they really make a statement but in a very cool casual way. One of them has a rod that appears to bend ever so slightly so it is slightly crooked in the glass hurricane but you really don't notice it at all unless you're really staring at it. I am thrilled with these lights. They are super pretty & bright (takes 3 clear candelabra base bulbs).

Just buy these! I scoured the internet for great looking/great feeling blackout curtains for a re-done home theater/family room. I didn't want them to look cheap and I needed a white backing so they looked good from the street. I ordered Absolute Zero ones from W_Mart (same $) and Solid Thermal Insulated Blackout Curtains from AMZN (less $). These were the most luxurious looking and feeling of the 3 by far, so much so that I didn't even wait for my wife to get home to pack the other ones up and hang them all. You'll definitely want to put them individually in a dryer with a wet washcloth on low heat for about 20 minutes to get the wrinkles out, but they truly look amazing. I also tried to save $ by only ordering a single panel for relatively smaller width windows (32") and ended up ordering a second panel for each of them...it just looks more luxurious with 2 panels AND it makes a difference for both sound absorption (needed in this media room) and thermal protection. If you are like me and wander the internet trying to find just the right thing - and then doing it some more - trust me and just order these. You won't be disappointed that you did. PS - if color is an issue with this brand (I needed Navy to match), the Absolute Zero ones are almost as nice, just not as luxurious feeling, but I would still recommend those as well (they also have a white backing).

I was very pleased to find these crisp white curtains. Key highlights: 1. Curtains crisp, true white. Not ivory, cream or eggshell. 2. Lined. As is the nature with white, they will not black out the sun light, but the lining gives a good sunlight buffer. 3. Not sheer, not heavy - just a nice in between curtain. 4. The twist tie directions are fine. They give u a general idea how to create the desired look, but if even if you don't have a "decorators touch" you will create or modify into a pretty curtain. 5. They have a bit of a sheen but it isn't cheesy b/c these curtains are so simple the sheen compliments the twist tab decoration - without the slight shimmer the curtains would lose their elegant edge. I purchased many pairs of curtains and found these to be just right. 2 thumbs up!

We're just finishing up a remodel of our first floor and replacing the old plantation shutters was overdue. We ended up installing mini-blinds, and thus needed curtains for the great groom (3 tall windows and a sliding glass door for the kitchen-dining room-living room). The wall color we chose was a medium, warm shade, and as the front porch doesn't allow a lot of light, we wanted white or light colored curtain panels with a subtle pattern. These were perfect for the job. They are unlined and have the feel of linen (but thankfully, don't wrinkle like linen). They're not weighty and allow a significant amount of light to filter through, but still allow privacy screening. Since we close our blinds in the evening, we don't have to worry about "see-through" when the lights are on at night. Shipment took about a week (coming out of California to the East Coast); also, it was the holiday season, so I wasn't surprised they didn't come earlier. Packaging was fine. Of course, they had to be ironed before hanging; they ironed out beautifully and we're very pleased with results. I only wish they came in hanging tab, but the back tabs work fine. Choose hardware thick enough if you're using the back tabs - otherwise they have a tendency to droop at top, showing the pole in places. We ended up getting different hardware so they would hang better. These are not panels to block out light, nor to insulate against drafts or cold. They do, however, give a nice, airy feel to the room. Would definitely recommend.

First, the good news. The color was accurate based on the picture, and the texture was soft to the touch while letting a fair amount of light to enter the room. Now, the bad news. The panels were supposed to be 84 inches in length, however, they measured 82 3/4 right out of the package. DO NOT hang these curtains before washing them unless you have already allowed for shrinkage, because they shrank over an inch in a cool wash and low heat dry cycle. I had read previous comments on the shrinking issue, and chose to wash them before installing new rods or else they would have been woefully too short. Had the length been accurate with minimal or no shrinking, I would have given them an excellent rating.

I hung these panels in my son's living room with some chocolate sheers. They hang very well, but are definitely a casual look. They look best with dark brown sheer panels in between. The quality is good, and he is happy with them. The weight of the microfiber keeps them well draped.

This is a great rug, especially given the size and cost. I put it in our living room directly over hardwood floors (tired of teenagers spilling on my wool rug) and it looks great. The pattern is great-- interesting, but subdued. It is tightly woven and could pass for a natural fiber-- I don't think anyone would guess it was an indoor/outdoor rug unless I said something. I love it because I can sweep it, and spills and spots easily wipe up-- and of course I can vacuum it. I do have smaller versions of this same rug that I hosed off last summer in the back yard with great success, so am assuming I can do the same with this one. As with any new, rolled rug, it arrived with a "factory" smell and ridges from the rolling. The smell dissipated within 24 hours, and the ridges are gradually relaxing. I expect the ridges to fully relax within a week or two, as was my experience with the 3 other rugs I purchased in this pattern.

I was hesitant about purchasing an indoor/outdoor rug for my living space. I didn't want the rug to be too casual. As it turns out, the rug is just right. I have a 3-yr old at home, and while the appearance of the rug is upscale, it can take spills and rough play without any trouble. I expect this product to last for a long time. Another thing worth mentioning is the fact that the rug was delivered very quickly and when we first put it down it was a bit... wavy. Now that it's been down for a few weeks, it's flattened out beautifully, and it really does look nice.

Love these rugs, bought 2 of the smaller ones for in front of entryway doors, bought the largest one they have for the living room, and a smaller one for the dining room. The colors pictured are pretty much spot on. Very casual and contemporary looking. Heavy. No weird 'processed wool' odor from them. Have them on reddish maple wood floors and they look great. Only thing keeping me from giving a 5 star rating is these rugs shed.....a lot......when you vacuum (all of them, not just the small ones). Currently online to see if they have a runner style in this rug for my front hallway.

I am so very happy with this purchase. For the price you can't go wrong and since I was leaning towards something in black or bronze I feel like I am on the cutting edge of fashion with this one. It really brightened up my casual dining area. I have had so many compliments on it. Highly recommended.

2 out of the 3 slip covers I got seems to be spliting up near the stiches. I now have to take those two the seamster and get it fixed which will cost a bit more than I planned.

I previously purchased 3 pair of these curtain panels for my sliding glass doors and french doors and liked them so much I purchased another pair for my kitchen bow window. They are great at insulating against cold in the winter and heat in the summer. They also block out the light very well. The fabric has a satin sheen and can be used with either a casual or formal decor.

This light is beautiful yet casual enough to be in a bedroom.. or even a romantic bathroom. It is what I would describe as french country style or even cottage style. The compliments never stop coming when someone see's it for the first time.

Arrived in 3 days and was packed well. This rug far exceeded my expectations! I purchased it for under my kitchen table but it arrived true to size (if not over), and was too large for that space. Placed it under my dining room table instead. Looks gorgeous! Is casual yet elegant and feels soft underfoot. The colors are as they appeared on my monitor - Natural with terra cotta details - Very soft colors. I highly recommend this product!

I love these valances even though I had to order 3 of them and sew them together to get the full look I wanted. The size of the grommet looks great with my 1 inch diameter rods. I also love the Java color which looks great with the Madison Park Melanie Comforter Set I also ordered from Overstock. The colors of brown match EXACTLY and I couldn't be happier. Overstock.com is a great company to work with. I'd order from them again anytime!

i've been going back and forth as to whether or not i wanted to spend the $ on this light for a while. i put it in my kitchen above the table and it looks great. attaching the crystals wasn't a big deal and i like the size-- we have high ceilings and i was worried because others commented that it was a bit small, works for me. looks a bit fancy when lit up because of the crystals and the pattern it makes on the ceiling so i wouldn't put it in an overly casual room...

These are very shear, which I wanted. They look better in subdued indoor lighting than bright lighting. They give a good feel to the room, let in lots of light. I can't think of a better curtain for where I put them - 2 six ft wide windows along the same wall, one of them being a sliding glass door.

I bought a pair of these elegant panels in Taupe for one window in my new home and they looked so spectacular that I ordered pairs for 3 other windows! (Note: They are sold individually.) The only problem I was figuring out how to tie the tabs. The instructions weren't detailed enough and my sister and I watched the video over and over and we still weren't sure what to do. I finally came up with my own system of tying them and adjusting them. I had 40 tabs to tie (5 per panel), but the effort was worth it.

This is exactly what we wanted - casual lighting for our breakfast table. Easy to install and instructions were simple.
Canvas bags have always been a popular choice for beach gear, baby supplies and casual purses, as they are well-liked for their durability. The recent upswing in environmental awareness has also made canvas totes a must-have replacement for traditional paper and plastic shopping bags. Canvas is strong and easily washed, and it is a natural, breathable fabric that lasts a long time. Commercial canvas bags are available in many styles, but you can sew your own canvas bags at home using a sewing machine and a few affordable supplies, saving money and having fun getting creative at the same time!
