The color is true yellow. If you look at pictures of other Safavieh lamps that come in the same color as this pair, those picture give a more accurate idea of the color. I love how tall these lamps are. It's hard to find tall, inexpensive lamps. Also, I didn't realize from the picture, but the bases and finials are gold. That's fine with me, but just thought I'd mention it for anyone else who doesn't notice.
I love these lamps, brighten up my family room with a pop of color and match my leather ottoman perfectly. I loved the way it reminds me of old school furniture from the 70's but still has a modern twist. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, because one of the shade had a couple of line through it that's visible with the light on, but to solve that I turned the shade around towards the wall, where it can't be seen. The yellow is not as bright as a lemon, but closer to the yellow of a banana, is the best way I could describe.
I looked for a long time for lamps for our brand new home. These are great sized lamps for a living room which is where I put them. I do think the color is a little off. A little too yellow instead of the green I was hoping for. The shades aren't great quality so I'm looking for new ones.
Beautiful lamp set, good price, well packed and received in perfect condition, yet the color is not what is shown on the website. It's a very bright yellow. Cute for a girl's bedroom or somewhere you need a true pop of color. I needed it to be more mellow and softer, like the picture. Sorry, but I have to send back.
One of mine arrived with a chip and crack in it, but I trust that Overstock will get me a new one. I absolutely love the style, the size of these, the color. I wanted a bright yellow like in the Jonathan Adler Happy Chic pics, and that's just what I got. I'm glad the other reviews let me know that it would be a bright yellow. :)
These are nice lamps for the price. The yellow is a bit muted and cool and pretty much matches the picture. They were well packed, so there were no dents or problems with the lamp shades. The felt on the bottom of one lamp was peeling off, but this did not effect the functionality of the lamp. Otherwise we are pleased. They fit in perfectly with our mid-century modern style furniture. I was very pleased with the super fast shipping. Ordered Saturday and arrived Tuesday evening.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was a good match. The lamp is a cool yellow.
