This lamp is just beautiful! SO much nicer than the photo leads you to believe. It's bigger than I expected too. The amber shade casts a beautiful warm light. One tiny warning: the packaging is very messy (styrofoam pills all over the place). Also be careful when you unpack -- they send you the tiny light for inside the bowl (looks so pretty when lit!) but it would be easy to get lost in the packing debris, so watch for it. This lamp takes 2 40-watt bulbs. Thanks Overstock! I'm getting another one!
Dragonflies seem to be The Theme of many lovely items this year. This beautiful lamp is a great example. The colors are warm, the materials top quality and the artistry of the design (it IS Home Art) is amazing. It impresses each time we see it. The base and each of the two upper lights can be selected independently or in whatever grouping you wish, to produce a customized lighting level. The product was promptly shipped and well protected. Highly Recomend !

This is a nice lamp. The lighted base gives off a pretty glow. Be aware of the bulbs you use in this lamp tend to be seen from beneath the shade . I have put smaller size bulbs in mine so they don't hang out from below. Also, the top piece that holds the shade on didn't quite screw down ontop of the shade to hold it in place.. overall.. nice lamp looks expensive and unique.
These lamps are absolutely beautiful. I bought two, and they make my living room a very nice place to be. Such a warm, soft light...a mood enhancing glow. I have a dragonfly motif (a subtle one) throughout my home, and these are absolute perfection. I happened upon these by chance, but they finish my home very nicely and make it a very welcoming place. I'm a very happy camper!
I just purchased my first of these lamps, last week; and I've assembled it and lighted it - it is completely charming! I respect admire, and honor true Craftman style art and domestic items - but the "real deal" Craftman items are out of my budget! This charming lamp delivers on real Craftsman style and decor, very nicely, on my "beer budget" - and now I will have a matched pair, as soon as my second one arrives!
The dragonfly lamp is truly lovely and exactly as pictured. As usual, the product came quickly after I placed my order, unfortunately, the shade was damaged. A few conversations with a service rep, and a new shade was delivered within a few days - awesome! The return of damaged shade was very easy as FedEx person had a preprinted return label...efficient! Back to the lamp, it casts a soft glow and adds great ambience. A previous review stated you couldn't use it as a reading lamp, and that is true it is not bright enough (uses 2- 40 watt bulbs). If you have a chance and it fits your budget, buy this lamp.
This lamp is a nice lamp for the money. It is unusual looking and fits together nicely. The shade is decent and the base is nice as a night light. This is a low light lamp however, so don't use as the only source of light . It makes a nice ambience lamp. I bought 2 for my den and they give a nice soft light for watching TV or listening to music, but when I want to see something I need to turn on the overhead lights.
I already owned one of these lamps and decided a pair would be nice. Upon receipt I noted that the shade had very obvious ripples in it, the body, where the dragonflies are embossed, had holes in the material used to form them and the entire lamp had been shrunk. The body is about 20-30 percent smaller than the original though nothing in the description would indicate that. I assume this is a profit margin issue for the manufacturer. Unfortunately this decrease in size made it impossible for me to use the same size colored bulb inside which I had in the original. That forced me to order bulbs. Obviously I kept it. I decided that the trouble to return it was not worth my time. It works OK and as long as no one looks closely at it the won't notice the defects. However I would never purchase another nor would I recommend doing so to a first time buyer due to the obvious decline in quality.
I was looking for a lamp without a busy pattern for a console table that would not clash with the two matching patterned lamps I have in my family room. I also wanted something that was low that would not obstruct the large framed artwork hanging just above the console table. This lamp fit the bill. It provides ambiance lighting and looks blends very well with the decor . It was hard finding a lamp the right size. This lamp is short and wide so be sure to check out the measurement before ordering.
this is a beautiful lamp and with 2 bulbs offers good lighting. I wonder about the light in the base and what will happen when that burns out as it does not appear to be accessible.

Both lamps arrived with damaged/faulty bulb sockets and pull switches. There was no apparent damage to the shipping container or packaging. I can only guess that the parts were defective prior to shipping. I choose to repair them rather than return. I won't buy this type of item here again. Items did arrive in timely fashion.

My only complaint is that the lamp turned out to be much larger than I thought it would be, and that's my fault for not reading the description more carefully. While I thought it would be more petite it is quite large and a bit oversized for the old oak dresser it's placed on. It is just as pictured.

I wanted an attractive lamp for my large kitchen to use at night. This lamp is unusual and interesting and the fact that you can adjust the amount of light is a plus. I use it as a night light and it's very attractive. The shade was wider than I expected but it goes well with the lamp. Overall I am pleased with this purchase.

This lamp looks great and is a nice size. The base is a substantial weight, the light it casts is perfect for accent/supplemental lighting. However. The shade material feels likes plastic and the poor fit of the finial results in a very loose, tippy shade.. It works for me because I use it in a corner on a low bookcase for accent light, but probably would be annoying if used as a sofa lamp. On balance, I like this, but would not purchase again.
