My review seems conflicted - but here's why. I purchased 2 of these lamps.....but had to send them back. They are absolutely gorgeous & very high quality. Looked at specialty light stores and these lamps were 2x as well made as others costing several hundred $ more. The problem was the glass cylinder was not centered on the chrome base - very obviously off center. Altho I returned those lamps, I placed an order for another with a phone rep - told her the problems w the base and the warehouse will double check that the fixture is centered; couldn't pass up the quality for the price. Will give up if this 3rd item also has a manufacturer's defect.
The glass color looks a different color depending on which way you turn the lamp. It is a aqua turquoise in one section, a lime green in another and clear. I do love the clear glass base. Although a little off centered, not really noticeable. Well made lamp shade. Look lovely on my night stands in my Master Bedroom.
Received the lamp, and like others, it is on the large side. When I put it on my buffet, the sun shining in the window exposed a lot of lint and smudge marks on the inside. I am going to attempt to remove the bottom and clean it out. Looks nice when the sun doesn't shine. The shade could be a tad bit smaller, but overall, it give me the look I was going for.
I read the reviews but took a chance. The situation with the offset base is EASILY correctable by loosening the stem with a quarter turn, straightening the base and then tightening back up. The lamps look great and add just the right amount of color to the room. I'm very happy with my decision to skip the comments and go for it.
The lamp arrived very well packed. It is indeed a large lamp and statement piece. I have it in a large, high ceiling living room beside the couch. It fills the space well. I have not noticed the off center issue that everyone has complained of, but perhaps I'm not as observant.
Purchased this to sit next to a chair in a reading nook in our Master suite. It is absolutely lovely. Big in size and heavy glass. I think the off center base was on purpose but you can center it if you want. Another great purchase from Overstock!
I have had my eye on this lamp for months now! I finally bought and love the lamp it self. The quality is good. I only have one issue and that is that it seems dusty inside so as others have mentioned on here I will have to take it apart and try to clean out the inside and hopefully that will work. It is a beauty!
The lamp is tall and beautiful! The glass gives the entire lamp a nice weight and feel. Once unboxed, you realize that the lamp is substantial in presence and feel. That said, the lamp is not centered on the base. Other than that, it's a nice lamp that provides beautiful light.
Purchased 2 of these lamps. They are beautiful. Both were shipped with the bases off center which seems to be a common compliant in the reviews. One lamp has brown spots in the glass that can not be removed so it is being returned for a replacement. The base can be centered by loosing the screw at the bottom of the lamp.
