This lamp, along with a taller one, are a perfect fit for the room where they were placed. The shape of the shades, and the color of the base are just right. This lamp leave plenty of space on the table for books, etc. The style was the primary attraction, and the price was just right.
Definitely one of my better Overstock purchases. It's on the smallish side and it's narrow profile is perfect for providing light but not having a big footprint. The simplicity of the design works with most decors. Quality of the lamp itself and the shade are both good.
From past purchases I know that getting an item of furniture or bedding is never disappointing. I chose this lamp for personal reasons. The profile is very beautiful, but my reason was to take up less space on the end tables than the ones I'd had for thirty years. They came very well packed and were simple to assemble. I have mine attached to a sliding tabletop dimmer, with a 50/100/150 bulb. This allows maximum or minimum lighting. I very seldom need to use the 150 illumination, rather preferring the soft warm glow from the cream linen shade. The base is heavy with felt pads underneath to protect furniture. I am very happy with my decision to buy them.
Surprised that this item was of such good quality. It is packaged to withstand a fall from a high rise. The material on the shade is thick and very good quality, and gives an amber glow ambiance. It is contemporary looking and goes with my brown black furniture and does not overwhelm the room. The base is metal not wood, and it is not huge.
The lamps are beautiful and well packed. It looks like an expensive lamp, but the electrical components were not on a par with the lamps. They work, but it appeared to have inexpensive components. The knob that turns on the light is a cheap rubbery knob. One lamp came without it! Despite these shortcomings, I would still recommend because from the outside, as a decorative lamp, they are beautiful. Overstock - it would be great if you sent me 2 knobs that turn on the light that aren't soft, pliable rubber!! Hard plastic, as a minimum, please?!
We love the look of this lamp so much that we have kept it despite its size -- it's BIG. We ordered fit for a relatively small side table in our living room but could not keep it there, as the base and shade are very wide and it seemed to overwhelm the seating area. So we moved it to our bedside table, which is kind of in the corner of the room, and it works and adds a lot of style to the room! But my husband will tell you that he can't leave the stuff from his pockets on the bedside table anymore ... I would highly recommend it for quality and looks, but it needs the right spot.
These lamps are great - I was a bit hesitant to order them after reading a couple of the other reviews, but I'm glad I ignored them & trusted my own judgement. They are such a unique shape & design, definitely not something you'd find in a lot of stores. The quality is great & the color is true to the description. The lampshade is beautiful - the shape & color makes the lamp! I have had many compliments on them & I am using them on the nightstands in my bedroom. They finish the room with a touch of class. I don't know what the people with the negative reviews expected, but I couldn't be more pleased with them & would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a quality & interesting lamp..
Beautiful little table lamp that I purchased as a set for our bedroom. Shipped in under a week and arrived in perfect condition. 4 stars instead of 5 because I would have preferred a silk or fine white shade, this is a dark cream and more canvas feel. I can of course update this myself, but it would have been nice to have to option to change the shade at time of purchase. I may just grow to love it though, who knows? Looks very nice in the room and creates the relaxing Asian feel I wanted.
I purchased these lamps purely on their design, for my Asian style living room. The finish on the paintwork is not good on either this lamp or the taller one. I had considered buying the matching floor lamp, but think I can do without it. There are areas on this lamp where there are 'lumpy' areas of paint, and some areas where the green undercoat is showing through. Fortunately both defects are on the back side of the lamp. I love the style of the shades, but wish they were a bit lighter - it really cuts down on the amount of light. On the smaller lamp the finial was defective - it just kept turning - not tightening, so the shade was just sitting there. I called Overstock and the customer service was great - they sent a replacement harp & finial out right away, so no complaints there at all. Design wise, I absolutely am in love with them.
