Please do not buy these. They are brushed chrome which looks more like they're scratched. The shades are horrible as well, and you can barely get your hand under the shade to turn them on. SAVE YOUR MONEY!

instruction do not tell you everything. What you have is for hard wiring into the wall. So if you are buying it just as plug in you will have loads for extra parts. It took about 3 hrs to figure this out after calling manufacture twice which was not a help. In order to make wall canopy stable with screws you will have to hold nut in place with pliers and tighten with screw driver and/or hands.(no mention of nut in instructions although they are in the box) Then you can screw on threaded knob which is the decorative part of front plate. I agree with other reviewers lamp shades are bit too little. Difficult to get hand up there to turn off. would have been better with a pull chain. But considering price this is a well made product. I would encourage anyone to by if you don't mind a little problem solving with your purchase.
I really like the light but it's suppose to be a plug in and the plug has to actually be put onto the cord. I'm not an electrician and wanted a plug-in model for the simple reason that I didn't want to have to deal with the electrical stuff. As a result the lamps are still sitting in the boxes they came in. Disappointed in my purchase.
Disappointed in the quality. The lamp shade fabric is 'twisted' and uneven. The body of the lamp is not as strong as I was expecting. And my lamps were in two separate shipments even though the tracking number showed only one shipment. The 1st lamp arrived two days earlier than was scheduled. This was my first experience with overstock.com and I'm not sure I will buy from them again. I'm not sending the lamps back because I like the style, however I will have to recover the shades before I use them.
Not pleased with the quality at all. Returning lamp.

I agree with other reviewers that your hand is a tight fit to operate this lamp, but it is not impossible and I plan on purchasing larger shades to compensate. Installation for two took my husband I only 45 minutes and as others also commented, we had extra parts we did not use. All in all, the lamps look elegant and stylish and give my bedroom the look of a high end hotel. At a fraction of the cost of other wall lamps, these do not disappoint and were worth the cost.

Besides being very difficult to set up, it is extremely hard to turn on and off....there is not enough room between the switch and the shade. It is much smaller than I had thought, but that would have been OK since it is being used in a bedroom. This will be replaced as soon as I find one I like, and it won't be on line!

I bought two of these but will be returning one, one is enough for our small room. This product requires assembly and some tools, don't buy if you're expecting an easy out-of-the-box product. I took the diamond shaped metal piece off, this scratched the round base underneath a little, but it just looks better without the diamond plate, which is thinly flat and sharp-cornered. I agree with other reviews saying that it's a little tight to get your hand inside to turn it on/off, but after all is said & done, this is a nice lamp, and can't beat the price.

Got these as reading lights in the master bedroom. Easy to assemble and install. They are perfect with 15 W lightbulbs in them. Things to note - 1) the cord instructions were backwards with mine, i.e. you had to hold the plug in the opposite direction than what is shown in the figure and then remember to flip the cord to the opposite direction too. Easy to figure out though. 2) The lamp shades are diamond shape, not square as they appear in the image. At first I thought that they would bend into the square shape, but they don't. The inside diagonal braces are such that is longer than the other, so it has to be a rhombus. This wasn't a problem for me, but it wasn't expected.
I bought these lamps for either side of the bed. They look fabulous and the best part is that they keep the clutter off of the bedside table. I am so glad I went with this lamp. One downside is that they are fairly low profile and it's a little tricky to get your hand inside them while lying in the bed. Not impossible, but a little trickier than you are ready for if you fell asleep reading. Not a deal-breaker though - I would by these again in a heartbeat.
I purchased 2 of these lamps for the bedroom. The diamond backplate of the lamps is a great design. However, the shade is very narrow inside and hard to get one's hand in to turn the light on/off. I replaced the shades on both lamps and am pleased with the new look.
I intended to use it on both sides of my headboard but found these were much too small and would have looked funny next to a big headboard. The other reviews mentioned this but if you want to plug these in you will have to wire the plug on yourself. FYI, the shades are diamond shape.
States PLUG-IN right on the box, BUT the plug is not attached to the cord. It comes with multiple parts and instructions. The box arrived TAPED and SMASHED. Looks like it was smashed first and then taped before it was sent. The shade is all bent up. Running on a deadline here, or would have sent it back. Will make do, but will think twice before ordering from Overstock again.
I bought two of these to go next to twin beds in my tiny guest room. They look like little jewels on the wall, and the light they give off illuminates the area beautifully. They are small lamps -- elegant and tidy. When I ordered them I thought shades were square, but they are diamond shaped to match the wall plate. The diamond shape accomplishes two things: 1.) the shade doesn't stick out as far into the room (which is great) 2.) It makes them look much cooler than a boxy, square. Bottom line: these little wall sconces (which come with matching metal tubes to hide the cords) are pretty, well-made, and I would buy them again. Please note that you have to attach the plug to the wire after you've run the cord through the metal tubes. This threw me at first, but it was a piece of cake.
