Wow! These lamps are sturdy! I wasn't expecting them to be solid wood, but they are heavy and solid wood. The color is a little darker than I expected, but still gorgeous and fits in well with our decor. They are a lot bigger than I was expecting as well. These lamps are going to last forever! They are so big and sturdy. They look really high end, like a Restoration Hardware or West End type of solid wood lamp, but much more affordable.
The lamps themselves exceeded my expectations. They are actually relatively 'heavy' which is a nice thing to have for desk lamps. The quality of workmanship (I know it's made in China) is very darn good. I especially like the base and the lamp shade. The positioning of the 'lamp' in relation to the shade + height is perfect. The shipping, as always with Overstock, was superb! Overall great buy!
This lamp looks great in the photo. However, it is not a fair representation of the product. The wood is darker; the larger, rounder "teadrop" part of the lamp has very obvious, "glued- in" circular sections to create the "teardrop" look; the "distressed" marks on the wood look more like just a poor selection of wood. The white paint around the base of the lamp was painted and then wiped very sloppily and unevenly, to create a stained look. Overall, poor quality for the asking price. I purchased two lamps on sale, but they are not worth the price. Overstock staff were great, accepting the lamps back and arranging the returns. I will certainly shop at Overstock again!
