I make frequent purchases from Overstock.com and have yet to be disappointed. I do read the reviews carefully when available, omitting those that score the product based on their own personal taste or a poor fit for the space intended and other such comments having little or nothing to do with the item's actual quality and/or function. Green is the primary color, as the photo depicts - and the picture is right on when it comes to the tone of green. It's just beautiful - not too bright or garish and with complementary colors throughout With all my past orders,I was still surprised at just how gorgeous this lamp is. It's exactly the size stated and is constructed of quality materials and ridiculously simple to assemble.The rod and base are finished well also and truly appear as brass. It was packed extremely carefully and as usual, delivered quickly (and for FREE!!!). For now it sits in our entryway next to an antique table - because of it's location I've heard nothing but complements on it from everyone entering our home. And, of course, all want to know where I found it, with the exception of close friends - they ALL know it's from Overstock.com since I purchase so many household items here - lamps, bedding,rugs,other decor, kitchen appliances and settings, etc. I remodeled our bath last year ordering almost every single item in the room including the sink, mirrors and fixtures- from Overstock.com. Only the granite countertops and flooring were purchased locally. And I was not disappointed with their lighting, mirrors,fixtures, etc. either! And when purchasing a large area rug sight unseen, you need some confidence in your vendor - their customer service is every bit as outstanding as the pricing. Do yourself a favor and don't hesitate - for the price, this lamp is a no brainer - you won't be disappointed, especially with their free shipping, Once again, thank you Overstock.com!

the lamp has a nice antique brass finish as advertised. The only drawback - with advertising & picture - is that it didn't show where the on/off switch is located, & whether it is a switch or pull cord. I ordered it, hoping for a pull cord ...... but it has a switch that is really too high to reach from a sitting position. It does give good light - with a 50/100/150 watt bulb - (also not mentioned in the advertisement). I found by eventually finding it on the base of the light screw-in area

Love the light and it adds charm to the house. However, the metal finish is dark bronze not antique brass as pictured. This is a problem, but like the lamp enough to doctor it with antique brass paint. Just be aware.

I am only the second review on this site. Just have to say you get what you pay for, and there are similar items out there that might be better-made for the price. Buy that one instead. You'll be glad you spent a little more. (1) You really should put the glass in before you hang it. There are metal tabs that need bent around the panes of glass, and they are not all welded on quite right. We sort of shimmed the panes with felt tabs to help hold them in place. I can't imagine how hard it was to add them after the fixture was hung! (2) It WILL take 2 people to hang it, and one should be good at electrical. We propped it on the top of a ladder which allowed us to attach the wiring without having to support the weight of the fixture ourselves. Then one of the bulb fixtures had no juice and the electrical guy was able to figure out how to poke at things and fix it. (3) You'd think 4 edison bulbs were bright, but it's a remarkably low-wattage fixture. Expect to need other lighting in the room. (4) Ours did not hang level and required a gerry-rigged ring to hitch up one side and test with a level. (5) One of the 4 bulb holders was a bit bent out of the box and eventually chipped. Black electrical tape was an adequate fix. Why are these parts always plastic? (6) We chose the darker finish which was quite ugly in person. Remember in the 70's when brass things were streaked with black to make them look "antique?" OK-- a can of good spray paint in any finish you like (before you add the glass!) is also a good fix. We went with a hammered taupy metal and let some of the under color show. Now that it's up, it's not going anywhere! But I'm not going to buy mechanical things from Overstock; I'm 2 for 2 on things not quite working right. I will say that Overstock is good to work with if you change your mind or something comes in damaged. So if you get this thing and you just don't like it, they'll show you some love.

Bought this as a shower gift. The couple had only ceiling lights, this was the 1st thing they unboxed and set up. They totally love them. The style will fit most decor and can be used in several different rooms

I was hesitant to purchase this lamp initially as I had concerns that the faux coral would look too brassy so I allowed myself a few weeks with the lamps in my living space before making a final decision. While the color of the coral is not as muted in tone as the antiqued brushed brass based, it is subtle enough to have a classic look. I may consider hand brushing a deeper burnished gold paint on some sections to deepen tone, but overall I am very pleased with the lamp. I purchased two and feel they are worth the price point. The shade is gorgeous and lined with a beautiful gold fabric. With a 100 watt bulb it offers great illumination which was another concern I had given the black shade. The stacked antique brass and crystal base is very glamourous and the crystal will have a nice reflective quality when the lamp is placed atop a medium console chest in front of a mirror. The same look will be replicated on the opposite side of the couch to give balance to the room. I did change out the coral finial for a simple finial cap in brushed brass as I felt the coral was too overwhelming for the lamp and detracted from the elegance of it. Not too heavy but definitely substanial and a larger-sized lamp. Only gave 4 stars due to the fact that the bases on both lamps I orderd had MINOR dents but nothing that anyone but the homeowner would likely notice. Packaging was very good.

Overall I love this fixture! We were missing one part, the first loop that would have connected the light to the chain. I made my husband convert one of the chain links to be used as this part, not a huge deal but he was annoyed. I didn't want to send it back for a new one because I was so excited to get it installed. The only surprise in coloring are the metal components look like an antique brass finish as opposed to a bronze. Bronze should be more brown than yellow, unlike brass finishes. Even so, it works okay with my oil rubbed bronze sconces in the same room. I highly recommend this light, great value for the price!

I mounted these on a standard 8 foot ceiling and was immediately disappointed. The heat is too noticeable when directly underneath the fixture and when far it looks like 6 small suns are hovering above my kitchen island.

the lamp is too lightweight. if you use a heavy LED it will tip over.

I bought three of them for my bar. I like them because my bar top is a little behind of the light box. This pendant can adjust the head, make the light shooting on my bar top, exactly what I am looking for. The price is the bargain. The pendant is smaller than I expected, that is why it was called "Mini". But the light is enough, the bulb is too light, I have to install a dimmer. The only thing I will complain is there was a plastic label on the pendant head, when I removed it, it made the antique brass a little green. Of course, it was not a big deal, because it was behind the light, you won't notice it after installing it. Overall, it is good, but not excellent.

We have large (12x22) kitchen with 10 foot ceilings. This ceiling fixture hits the mark for overall illumination. You can direct the 6 lites in any direction you want. And it is just a little bit different in design so it doesn't look like every other track lite fixture.

This globe is stunning. It's a very warm color. I hung it over a smallish kitchen island. My kitchen has grey bottom cabinets, white uppers, white/grey carrara marble counters subway tile backsplash. I have stainless steel appliances and stainless hardware, a polished chrome faucet. It's a clean, elegant kitchen and this antique brass color and style fits perfectly and the color adds some warmth to an otherwise "cool" kitchen. The globe part is acrylic. It comes dirty and scratches easily. Devote at least 30 minutes to cleaning it, (before hanging) and clean it thusly: plain water on a new, clean, plain washcloth like you use in the bathroom. Dry it with a new washcloth. Windex, paper towels, microfiber all left streak marks. The two halves of acrylic do not meet in the middle, there is about an inch of "bare" space between the 2 halves once it is hanging, but this is not noticeable even when you are right up beside it. For the price, I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

This is a beautiful lamp. Good quality and assembly was easy. Exactly what I was hoping for

The order came quickly and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this lamp. The lamp shade colors are orangy and off white with some brown. When turned on by a "step on" floor switch the orangy colors look red. The base and pole are antique brass finish and quiet heavy. Very happy with my purchase.

The lamps are decent quality. Connections Berwyn parts could be a little more sturdy but overall they are good. Shades are great quality! Incredible price. Package was pretty banged upon arrival but nothing was broken.

You need to be handy to put this one together. I actually would recommend a two person job. I had to run to the hardware store to get some additional small brass nut fittings and locktite because the small threads on the wires are not consistant and felt a bit loose. This small amount of hardware trick worked. You aslo need a third hand to keep it from tipping while putting on the crystals unless you have something to dangle it from, the crystals will crack if the lamp tips weight on them while you are putting it together. A few of the crystals were damaged on arrival but one call to the manufacturer and I had a huge bag of replacement crystals to finish assembly and in case something happens to one of them in the future (free). I am very happy with how it looks assembled and truly recommend this modern wire style for someone with ecclectic-artsy tastes like mine.

This lamp goes perfect in my bedroom where I was looking for something that would match the quilt I just bought and has a country look to it. I love the night light feature on the bottom of the lamp.

These lamps are beautiful. Perfect size and the colors are gorgeous! I would highly recommend these to any one wanting hurricane lamps.

This light was exactly what I wanted. The hardware in my bedroom is antique brass, so I needed a light that would go with that. This is not a bright yellow brassy color. It's a muted brass, and it fits well with the antique brass hardware, although it is much lighter than my antique brass hardware. The shade has a bit of a pearly sheen to it. The only issue is that the mount is not very sturdy. As a result, the base moves when you move the arm of the lamps. For the price, I am willing to overlook it.

Excellent deal! Lamps arrived well packaged. The shades do have a protective oil coat that easily removes with glass cleaner. Please note that the colors were not as described; instead of cobalt blue, my two lamps were green with red swirls. That's a better match for my decor. My bases were also a different color than the description. Mine are an antiqued brass--blackened brass--very subdued. The bases are heavy and just lovely. Regular light bulbs will not fit. Get "flame" bulbs.
