I purchased this lamp based on previous positive reviews and because I liked the look. Product was packaged well and delivered quickly. Comes unassembled so that you must screw two sections to the base. Although the lamp stands straight, these sections are not perfectly centered and the topmost section won't screw in tightly. The shade, FYI, is not round but oblong - I found that to be a huge disappointment and wish that had been in the description. The base for the shade wobbles terribly, I had to place some felt so that it would stand relatively even. Not a good value for the money, but since I like the look and don't want the hassle of repackaging and reshipping, I'll keep it.
This lamp is heavy. It will not get overturned. The color is neutral and the subtle variations In the color make the lamp interesting. The lamp shade is oval not a round drum as it looked in the pic. I was a little concerned about how it would look. No problem. Just a beautiful floor lamp!
I purchased this lamp and the oversized table lamp for my son's nursery. I am extremely happy with both lamps. The shades give off a burlap feel. The lamp bases are very well constructed. They are very easy to assemble. I was considering similar lamps at Restoration Hardware baby. But these lamps were so much more affordable and look just as good. The price for both of these lamps is less than the price of one base from Restoration Hardware baby. Everyone that sees the lamps love them (even my husband who doesn't have much to say about house decor).
I have been so happy with this lamp - very sturdy and heavy. It was easy to assemble, but I did replace the shade. It was an oval shade and actually seemed too small for the lamp. (The table model has a bigger shade, although it is a smaller lamp.) I would buy it again if I was looking for a floor lamp. I am so glad and decided to take a chance and purchase it.
The lamp does not screw together tightly, as if it came striped so the base and limb are always loose, the socket also is not a firm attachment and seems unsafe to change bulbs unless you hold it taught with your hands as you change bulbs.
I was needing a heavy lamp having three big dogs and also wanted something unique and beautiful and that is exactly what I got. The oblong shape of the shade works perfect for my space. The shade has a nice textured fabric and the white washed wood base is pleasing. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Love this lamp! It's a beautiful addition to my living room. My only reservation is that the shade is too small. My lamp arrived with a dented shade, but Overstock sent a new shade in about a week. Eventually I will purchase a larger shade. Overall the lamp seems to be of good quality and compared with other similar lamps, I think it's a great price.
This is just a beautiful lamp. The soft washed-out wood finish compliments my coastal/cottage living room perfectly. I was aware, thanks to the reviews, that the shade is oval, but I still wasn't prepared for how it would look. It reminds me of a lamp shade you'd see in a dentist's office that hasn't been redecorated since the 60's. You know the one - orange upholstered chairs and dark paneling everywhere. Also, the finial, though made of wood, looks like cheap plastic. The bottom was cut unevenly, so it sits crooked on the lamp. That being said, I'm still loving this lamp. Replacement shades and finials are cheap, so I still consider this a great purchase.
