I've been waiting for several days for a response to the problem with the lampshade, however I have received three separate emails from different customer service reps apologizing for the problem and informing me that someone would be in touch with me very soon to see about a replacement. I would give this 5 stars were it not for the shade quality.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The base is beautiful-very heavy and solid. The shade is another story. It's thin and of cheap materials and arrived dented in 3 places.

The light looks good from a distance. Quality of workmanship is not as good as the photo on the website suggested. One of the sections simply can't be put together as it is in the original package due to the screw head being too short to connect to the other end. I actually have to un-screw the head out a bit to make them connect (a bit try and error ... almost at a point to return the item). The socket for the light bulb is really low quality and move around a bit no matter how you put in the light bulb.
I will rate it B for quality, A for appearance from a bit distance. It does the job for me, but I was hoping for a higher quality piece ... maybe my expectation was too high for the price?
The package is well done, but again not excellent ... meaning it is well protected but does not give you a feeling of high quality.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Different ... the actual product color does not have much of reflection & complexity as the web photo shown
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Average ... less elegant as the web photo shown

This Montclair 59-inch floor lamp comes in four sections that simply screw together. It has two longer dark-brown resin sections that looked like wood at first. And three circular marble pieces are at the base, middle, and top. The smaller photo shows a close-up of one of the marble sections, but mine is a lighter brown color than the photo.
I placed the lamp in my living room and it brightly illuminates a diagonal half of the room really well, perfect for reading or working at a desk or computer. I use it for both: as my reading lamp and for working with my wireless keyboard when I am using my TV as my monitor. The floor lamp isn't like a ceiling light that spreads evenly throughout the room, so I have a small desk lamp sitting on my desk in the other diagonal half of the living room. However, it is not a typical Wal-Mart floor lamp since it is much more study and stylish. I especially like the little marble sections (they match the top of my desk that sort of looks like marble as well).
It takes one 3-way light bulb. This means that the floor lamp allows three levels of brightness. You use the main switch at the top of the lamp to switch between the three levels. I found cheap and compatible light bulbs at a local Ace Hardware store.
You can use a 50/100/150 watt incandescent bulb. This wattage bulb allows 615/1540/2155 lumens depending on the level of brightness you choose (by turning parts of the light bulb on or off).
You can also use a 16/25/32 watt CFL bulb. The package indicates that the bulb is a replacement for the 50/100/150 bulb. This wattage bulb has 600/1600/2150 lumens.
I chose the CFL light, but I might get an incandescent bulb to compare and see whether I can get the lamp to put out a bit more light on the highest setting.
The light looks like a piece of furniture itself and has a thick base. I can only put my hand around a few grooved spots. It was easy and quick to put together for the most part. Some of the sections were awkward to screw together, but once together, it looks very sturdy and has a classical-looking design. Highly recommended!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The small photo is too dark. My lamp has three lighter brown marble sections in-between the longer and darker-brown resin sections. The large vertical photo lacks detail and quality, but accurately captures the darkness and sturdiness of most of the floor lamp. I mostly thought the lamp was worth checking out in person and taking a chance!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent materials for the most part: I like the combination of the longer dark-brown resin sections, and the three little marble sections. The top part around the light bulb and the shade are a bit basic. For example, the material around the light bulb is a bit flimsy and requires care, and the connective screwing parts were a bit awkward and took some time to figure out whether they were going together correctly. Once together, it is study and classic looking floor lamp.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate. However, no professional wiring needed at all. It comes with a simple cord like any other lamp I could get at a Wal-Mart.
My husband and I ordered one of these lamps for our living room and after seeing how beautiful it was, we ordered another one. These lamps are very heavy(30LBs), and look much more expensive than they are. I highly recommend them!

Took very little effort to assemble this floor lamp. It is heavy and well made, looks great in my living room. I saw one that almost looks the same in a furniture store for ***.**. Does not take up a lot of space. Great price for beautiful home accessory.
I'm quite pleased with the lamp. The item arrived quickly and was true to the description. The lamp quality seems excellent and I would even consider acquiring another. The shade did arrived damaged, which might have posed a problem; however, I was exceptionally fortunate in that I spotted a shade at a local discount store that I thought might fit, and it did. It looks even better than the original shade, which would have been fine, had it not been dented during shipping. Bottom line: I love the new lamp!

This is a great lamp. Very beautiful in person and well made. It is actually very heavy and looks very expensive. I do have to say the lamp shade arrived damaged through the shipping process, but overstock has great customer service and they were able to ship a replacement shade out the next day. I love this lamp, and would recommend to all my friends. They are always asking where I got it, and what is the cost. They don't believe it when I tell them how much I actually made for this lamp. As I said great lamp, very beautiful and elegant.

This lamp is absolutely beautiful !! even prettier than I expected. Extremely well made and easy to assemble.
Not a light weight lamp that will easily fall over & good for reading by my chair. The wood is very dark and the marble is beige & tan, very nice contrast.
We are very happy with this choice & highly recommend to others!!!
