We needed a big, tall lamp for a location in our newly remodeled downstairs. This is perfect for the spot. Not only is the lamp perfect but I was so happy with Overstock's customer service. The first lamp I got was not the one I ordered. The packing slip said it was but Overstock had sent the wrong one. I contacted them immediately and they got the correct one in the mail to me before I even returned the incorrect lamp. I sent the wrong lamp back and the transaction was handled perfectly. Thanks Overstocks for providing me with just exactly the product I needed at a good price
This lamp is quite nice and it is very talltaller than expected, but I did not pay attention to the measurements given on the website. It was too large for the space I had planned (again, my fault) but it actually looks great in a spot which made me move around the lamps in my living room. All-in-all, it is a pretty lamp. The shade is a darn tan/light brown and really pretty when lit. Also, I paid half the Overstock price, so it is a real bargain.
This is a very substantial lamp. It needs a big table to sit on and ample "space" around it. Taller than most table lamps. The shade is beautiful, but is darker than I thought it would be. As such, the light is more muted than I would have preferred, but it is so pretty where it is, than it's a trade-off I can live with. And, of course, the shade can always be changed to a lighter color in the future! Great addition to our family room.
