The color of the lamp shade was what caught my eye but the diameter was MUCH larger than I was expecting based on the picture. I immediately returned it once I realized it was much too large for my room. Since I didn't assemble it I can't say if the shade is disproportionately large, but this product requires much more space than the typical floor lamp.
This is a great lamp. We have a modern home filled with art and just any old lamp won't do! We bought two of these and they are just wonderful. While turned off, the lampshade is a caramel/tan/burnt orange color -- don't worry when the light is turned on it is the wonderful red. The beads add a funky design to the whole thing and it makes for a very colorful, whimsical lamp. Now, the truth is the beads are added by simple thin wire loops. This could be improved greatly and would add value to this lamp. However, we are very happy with this lamp/price/look, etc. and would highly recommend this purchase.
The lamp is beautiful and the crystals add that touch of glamour! The directions were a bit limited....I had to look at the photo on line to figure out how to attached the crystals, but once done: Beautiful! The lamp has a HEAVY base, (which shows quality!) and the drum covers the light bulbs beautifully. The quality is fantastic! The drum is a bit bigger than I expected from the photo, but it is a show stopper in the room!
the lamp is simply beautiful, wish it was just a little taller. It was a little difficult placing all the crystals on it and initially I had an issue figuring out what 60 watt incandescent lights fit, But once I got it all together I was definitely satisfied, I'm sure it will be the topic of many discussions once my family and friends see it.
I was skeptical about an online purchase especially without having an opportunity to see it touch it in person. The reviews helped me feel confident that the purchase was a good one. The chandelier type crystals are beautiful and add the needed touch of elegance. It was simple to put together and I was quite pleased with the brightness it offered. There are 5 bulbs that allow for as much brightness as one desires. Great purchase. You'll love it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good color representation. No surprises.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very pleased with the quality if the product. It actually looks fancier and more expensive than it is.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
We really like how these lamps work in our media room. Elegant and fairly soft yet bright light. Just be aware-no bulbs come with it. I'm sure it says that somewhere in the description but I missed it! No big deal. Just takes regular candelabra type bulbs I bought at grocery store.
I am in love with this lamp, but the relationship had to end. The lamp arrived with a bent shade. I requested a replacement shade. Overstock sent a second lamp instead. Quite generous. The second lamp arrived with a bent shade. It is a striking lamp, but the flaws in the shade were noticeable and unacceptable. The manufacturer should package the item better. Overstock took care of my returns quickly and generously. Thank you.
It's very beautiful and elegent with classic though modern look... My living room has a modern/contemporary furniture and bringing this lamp to the picture noticeably changed the whole room. It gives elegence though still young look. Redshade bring a lot of peace and it's very relaxining..
This is a lovely piece we purchased for our home office. Although made in China, the quality is nice, but the crystal details do take a little bit of time to assemble. The color is a true red, as pictured. We ordered a smaller table lamp, which also is listed as red, but is a true burgundy. Wish is was more consistent with the site to what they colors are. The shade is heavy, well made and very unique and overall quite pleased.
This lamp has a very heavy base; which adds to the sturdiness and quality. Once you put the bulbs in and turn it on, you just can't stop looking at it; it is THAT gorgeous! The directions on how to connect the crystals are quite lacking; but I decided I loved the lamp without the crystals, so I didn't even use them. I don't normally write reviews, but was so impressed with this lamp and it's price that I had to share.
