I ordered 2 of these for my family room. I was shocked at how light the boxes were when they were delivered! the weight of these lamps made it so that when I pulled the chain to turn it on, the lamp toppled a bit. also, the chain on one of the lamps broke right away. They LOOKED so good I almost kept them...but they are very poorly made. I was surprised because I don't think they were that inexpensive. I have another lamp like these in my upstairs living room, and the retail price on that was 100.00, and it is built like a rock. i thought for sure when i saw the retail price on these that they would be close to the same, but i was wrong.
These lamps are made of plastic. I saw no "metal" base or "glass" on the shade. The lower half of each light bulb is lower than the bottom of the shade, so you can clearly see both light bulbs! I'm returning mine.
At first glance this lamp looked o.k. Then we put in a bulb and pulled the chain. AGGH!
The shade IS made with small post-it size sheets of GENUINE Mica.They are applied on a
flimsy plastic feel shade. The small squares shine through like pieces of scotch tape all over the surface of the lampshade. We own a more expensive genuine mica lamp and this is NOT the way a Mica shade should look. I would like to say that I am a HUGE fan of Overstock. Most of their products are well priced of superior quality and ship for free if you are in Club O AND look as beautiful in your home as any you could buy anywhere. I hope Overstock will stop carrying this item because it is not up to the standard of quality I have come to expect from their site.
I kept the lamps, because the size and color was right for what I needed in a second home. But it wasn't at all the quality I expected for the price. Another disappointing light purchase from the "o". If I didn't hate sending things back so much, this would definitely have gone back.
I had some reservations because of some other reviews so I got pretty much what I expected. The lamp overall has a nice effect, but it wasn't as tall as stated so I couldn't use it in the area for which it was intended. The shade does have a "post-it effect" in the pattern and it does not cover the bulbs sufficiently at the eye level. I had to use washers to tighten it down at the lowest level, which doesn't quite cover the bulbs. The price overall was fair and if it weren't for these complaints I would have rated it 1-2 stars higher and recommended it.
Was looking for a lamp to match one on my bedside table, thought this would be the one; and overall it is. Product description above says 40watt bulbs but the fixture itself says 60watt - that's fine. The bar that the shade fits onto, with the finial on top, is a bit too tall however. The bulbs are partially exposed underneath. I was able to lower the shade just a bit, so it's OKAY but not quite what I expected. Overall however the lamp looks SO close to the other one that I'm satisfied.
After I ordered this lamp I looked at the reviews and immediately had buyer's remorse. However, when the lamp arrived, I was pleasantly pleased. This is not a heavy lamp, but I didn't have problems with it falling over when pulling the on/off chain as described in some of the past reviews. Folks who claimed the lamp fell over when the chain was pulled must have been yanking on it sideways. Seriously, if you pull the chain straight down (the way you're SUPPOSED to pull it), it works perfectly fine. Just common sense. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and have no intention of returning it unless it suddenly stops working. It looks beautiful.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Comparable.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. A good deal. I wasn't expecting the quality of a $500.00 lamp, but for $76 I thnk it was well worth the price.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It looks like the picture and the size is what I was expecting.
I saw this identical lamp at an interior decorating store in town and it was priced $250. I paid much less than this on Overstock for the exact same lamp. The quality is fine. I'm using it in the Study where it won't get much traffic and is not at risk of being tipped over. I'm not sure I would use this lamp in a bedroom. The light bulbs are really bright under the shade and this would be annoying in bed. But for a study it works perfect.
I really like my new lamp. It fills a void behind my sectional and adds beautiful warmth to the room. The base is really light, so I am afraid of someone knocking it over when they stretch their arms. All in all though, for the price, it is a nice additional to my living room.
I was a little sceptical about this lamp after reading some of the reviews, now that I have the lamp, I have no idea what people were talking about who were unsatisfied with this lamp. The lamp is great! Gives off a warm glow of light, the bass does NOT wobble as suggested by some reviewers, and I have no idea what type of light bulbs some people were using where they ran into problems, but my standard size bulbs werent even close to being visable from underneath the shade. Of course this is not a 300 dollar real Mica lamp, but if you're looking for something charming and for a great price, this is a wonderful lamp.
