This is a very nice, "modern" design which also works well with eclectic furnishings. There is one problem though - the shallowness of the shade's width, which works well with the over all design, can make the bulbs be seen by people sitting down and by standing shorter adults. To avoid this, simply place the finial and lampshade differently from what the instructions say. Instead of screwing in the thicker portion of the finial to the base and then placing the lamp shade on and then screwing in the thinner piece, change the order: put the lampshade on first, then screw in the thinner piece and then the thicker one into that Doing this drops the shade down past the point where the bulbs might shine in people's eyes. This does change the look of the over all design, and especially above the lamp shade, but the total look is still very modern and clean. So, if you are considering buying this lamp, try to imagine it with the change I recommend. I suppose I should give only “goods” for this product rather than “excellents” because it is flawed if you follow the directions exactly since who wants glaring lights in one’s eyes? The solution is easy enough, though I admit it took me a while to discover it and I was even considering buying all sorts of smaller bulbs etc. before the light bulb in my head turned on!

I fell in love with this light when I saw it on your site. I like the mission style and the cut glass. This is cut glass, but you do need to be very careful with the lamp. I wouldn't have little kids or klutzy adults around it I really wish the finial would tighten more, Perhaps I can find a good finial that will compliment the lamp.

Had two tall white lamps I got years ago with S & H Green stamps...remember the days? After a few accidental tosses and misses of footballs and basketballs they bit the dust. Had a "squatty based" white lamp and these two matched perfectly, only taller of course, and also purchased the floor lamp that matches. The lamps are exactly as described and provide great light without being the focal point. Good purchase. All the children and grandchildren are now adults - no more ball games in the house - and the lamps should last the rest of my lifetime.

I'm returning the lamps because they are not as shown. The measurement listed on one side of the description is 19". On the other side it says 17 - 20". The lamp is 17" tall including the finial. The lamp shade comes down to the top of the porcelain. It looks out way out of proportion. The bottom is 6 ⅝". The shade is 7 ½". If they were to stand alone, I would rate the quality of the base and shade as excellent. The style would be excellent. They get a poor rating because of the proportion / design flaw. Best description - a five year old wearing an adult size hat.

Between an electrical contractor and myself (an engineer) it took almost three hours to assemble this chandelier. It arrived in over a hundred pieces. The instructions are minimal and the diagrams only vaguely resemble the components in the box. There is no photo to reference, so we were very lucky i had saved the photo from this site to my phone. When finished, the chandelier is pretty, but it cost an unanticipated *** to have the main components assembled and wired by a professional. As a side note, it is much more suitable for a nursery or teen/young lady's room than for an adult's. It has a great look, but the quality just isn't there.

I read many reviews that were posted about this item. They are mostly true- the shade is darker when it isn't lit (common sense?), the baubles that hang from the shade are plastic, the base is of so-so quality. What concerns me about the base is that is seems to be too light. I believe this lamp is slightly top heavy and I'm concerned it will topple over. I happen to have it in my bedroom and adults will be the only people that turn this lamp on and off. Not such a big problem. What people have neglected to mention is the beautiful glow this lamp emits. As I said previously it is in my bedroom. I bought 2 and they are on either side of my bed. These lamps have 2 bulbs in each to fully illuminate the gorgeous shade with a soft, sexy light if light can be described as sexy. The base and the baubles definitely take a back seat to the amazing multi-colored pieces of stained glass and cabochons that dazzle the eye when lit. I looked all over the internet for a lamp that was reasonably priced, interesting and different to look at, and had a personality so to speak. I'm happy with my purchase.

i recommend these lamps in any color. the blue adds a more young adult attitude and the green one is more for a younger look. can't go wrong goes well with my yellow room

This is a really great looking modern chandelier at an excellent price. We are using it in a walk in closet and it provides more than ample light. A few words of caution: each crystal has to be put on by hand which is a bit time consuming as the crystals are on "o" rings not hooks. It took two adults working together about 45 minutes. Also -- 15 or so crystals arrived broken as the packaging for them was inadequate. Overstock was prompt and courteous about sending replacements which arrived intact. Bottom line - the chandelier requires a bit of work but in our opinion was well worth the effort.

My husband has talked fondly of the Tiffany dragonfly lampshade (the real thing) than he saw at an aunt's house as a boy. He made a beeline toward it whenever they visited, and it would be turned on for him to finger the dragonfly pattern. I was amazed when he fell in love with this lamp right away, and he comments on it often. Usually the things we get as adults don't match the memories of childhood, but this one did!

Purchased two of these lamps for my adult daughter for Christmas. She hasn't opened them yet (two more days), but I opened them when they arrived to make sure they weren't damaged in any way. They are absolutely beautiful! She is going to love them.

Love this floor lamp. It's very simple but elegant. The adjustable arm give our family flexible height for kids and adults.

I look at these and they make me smile! Two at this price, after much looking around, is a steal! My adult daughter loves turtles AND her room has green accents so these look amazing. They really glow the best on our clear glass end table and desk. Highly recommend these! Thanks O!

I bought this as a gift for a 5 year old boy who likes a night light. He loves it, has named it Henry and feels like his friend Henry looks after him at night. Since I bought the pair, I kept one for myself. I like mine too. It is a pretty glow and looks nice for an adult too. I like a little whimsy in my life & Mr Turtle is the right amount for me. yes the top does not snap on, however both of us see no reason to carry them around. A good value.

Purchased this lamp for my adult daughter's bedroom because she was looking for something blingy and romantic. This fit the bill. It is a lovely lamp but was somewhat difficult to assemble because the crystals were loose in the box from transit, and it was quite a "puzzle" to hook them back together and figure out where they hung on the lamp. All and all she was pleased with the results.

I wasn't that thrilled with the chandelier when I first took it out of the box. It seemed cheap looking. It did take three adults two hours to assemble and hang the light. It was difficult to figure out where all the crystals went. I wasn't able to enlarge the photo so we try to work off the directions, which are a little confusing. Once it is up, It looks absolutely stunning in our bedroom. We put a medallion on the ceiling and the chandelier looks very impressive and expensive. It is a touch of elegance with being overboard. I love it!

I love these lamps and have purchased different styles for my adult kids. The main problem is the fact that toddlers easily pull them over. The shades didn't break but the pole came loose from the base and totally messed up the wiring. If you have a protected area to place a torchiere they are beautiful. The lighting is subtle yet the colors are intense.

We ordered this for my daughter's bedroom (which is a renovated attic) and it is fabulous. It's hip, elegant and the light that reflects off the chrystals gives the room a cool feeling. It took my husband 20 minutes to install the base and then my 10 year old daughter and her girlfriend added the chrystals without any help from an adult. Once again, Overstock met our high expectations!

Colors are rich and vivid even when not lit. Description doesn't mention the lovely lavender color! It looks like real glass and the weight of the metal makes you believe it is. Lamp is actually 2 sided as shown so when looking from top or bottom it is triangular so it is super easy to hang. I thought it was square and meant for a corner placement but is actually more versatile and interesting the way it is. Made for mood or ambient lighting, not as a primary source of light for a room or area. Would make a wonderful child's room light but would be equally at home in an adult's room. I am getting one for my entry hall so I have one angel watching over me as I leave leave and the other to welcome me upon my return. I gave this as a gift and it was very much appreciated and loved by the recipient. I am back to order one for my home as well. It is way too nice to go without one (or more) especially at O's pricing.

The light looks great and met my expectations but it does seem to be more appropriate for a young girl's bedroom rather than an adult woman's. If I had it to do over again, I'd pick a light without the glass ornaments.

I purchased this item as a gift for a young adult. She liked the lamp and loved the quality. We returned it because it did not match her decor. Hopefully soon and with her input we will order another Tiffany lamp.

Bought this for my adult daughters bedroom. She loves it! We put it together ourselves in about 1 1/2 hours and wired it and installed. I have done stuff like this before so no problems. There was one crystal missing. But I didn't call to have it sent. I just used one of the extra jump rings to replace that area and put that one towards the back where no one will notice it. This is sturdy and has an adjustable length. We put it quite short as her ceiling isn't very high. Would look nice a little longer too.
