I used these lamps in a master bedroom I was decorating in a Hollywood Regency style. I placed one on each end table, the mercury glass has a very elegant look to it. I would like to point out that the lamp shades are a natural linen color, more of a sand color than Ivory - definitely not white. It worked in the space I was using them in but might not be right for everyone.

After all most four years of trying to put together what I like to call my "sitting room", (it's a southern thing) I went on Overstock.com after a friend recommended it and said that "I guarantee you will find what you are looking for." He was right. I put "table lamps" into the search bar, and off I went. It didn't take long to come across exactly what I wanted! With a three way switch, these lamps easily set the mood of any room. Soft light for easy conversation, a bit brighter if it's just not that kind of and evening, and bold lighting for reading. With scalloped edging all around, these lamps have a wonderful appeal to the eye. Once they've invited you in for a closer look you see that they reflect not on they hue of the wood, (mine sit on cherry stained tables) but illuminate with a soft glow of silver, sort of like moon light on a cloud covered, full moon night. Their neutral color shades, which trend to all most a creme color, go with any decor. They brighten up the room, and invite your family and guests to come in and relax. If I had it to do all over again, I'd order the exact same lamps, no question about it.

Very satisfied with the product - looks a lot fancier than they cost. One complaint I had is that one of the shades came w/a spot on it - will plan to call Overstock to see if we can get it resolved. Otherwise, they are very durable - one fell from my dining room table and did not crack, so,that's a plus - esp. as these are being used on our nightstands and the dogs we share our bed with tend to roughhouse in the bed many times hitting the furniture!
I love these lamps, but they came with the finish bubbled up and one was shiny and the other mat. There was a lot of bubbles that could be push flat, but it still left a ring where the bubble had been. I cannot understand why anyone would pack these lamps in the first place considering their condition! Apparently, this was just a bad shipment, but I'll order something else instead. I have ordered many things from O and this is the first bad shipment I've had.
My wife and I are enjoying decorating our living room and these lamps are just the icing on the cake, if you get what I mean. We are prepared to receive many compliments on these lamps, we are sure. The items were as described on the website. The size is perfect for out living room tables and decor. I would highly recommend this seller to other customers.

I bought these lamps for our master bedroom and they make a beautiful statement. They are made of what I would consider to be a more durable resin (as opposed to glass or ceramic) but you would not know that by looking at them. Often, a resin product will show defects in the finish, but these are beautifully mirrored with no imperfections. (Just to clarify . . . one reviewer used the term "mercury glass" to describe them, but they are actually a very solid, mirrored finish.) The linen drum shades are the perfect complement to the style. Would definitely recommend.
