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.
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.
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.
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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurately described
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!

Hello eseit, thank you for your question. The lamp has an on/off switch. We hope this information is helpful to you. Thank you for shopping with us! Vicki H.overstockcustomercare2 on Dec 2, 2013
Do these sconces come as a plug in or do you have to change it to a plug in? I read a review that says they come as hard wired fixtures. I only want a plug in as they will be for a rented apartment. Thanksleslie1992 on Jul 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
