Great arc lamp for the price - looks as good in our space as more expensive versions I have seen in stores. To address some of the other reviews here: 1)The instructions (only a simple diagram) are printed on the end flaps of the inner shipping carton; 2) The length of the arc is adjustable and you need two people to adjust from low to high - one to pull in the slack of the cord from below and one to push the top portion of the arc back from the top, and 3) The shade comes in two pieces so that no matter how high or low the lamp is hanging, you can adjust the shade to be parallel to the floor. Practically every single piece of the lamp is adjustable. We were hesitant about this lamp based on the low price and the reviews, but it looks great, was pretty easy to put together, and puts out a lot of light. LOVE IT!
I am extremely pleased with this lamp (although the first one came in with a broken marble base, the replacement lamp came in very fast). It looks exactly like the other more expensive arc floor lamps. It is definitely worth a 5-star rating and It is easy to assemble too. My living room looks so much more stylish with it and I totally love it! A special thanks to Overstock for the outstanding customer service support all the time!

I bought this lamp a few months ago, and finally got around to putting it together, as it was tough to get the bottom pole screwed into the base easily. But I finally decided to take the plunge, and got it together. It was a piece of cake.
Everyone seems to LOVE this lamp. It IS cool, and the arc is adjustable, and can be very wide. I am surprised no one has commented on how you MUST put this together where it is going to be...I did it downstairs, and plan on using it UP stairs, which will be at least a 2-person job, given the arc and the weight of the base. I actually might have to disasemble it... :-(
The 2-part shade is fine, although if you are using it over a reading spot, etc., the bulb will be exposed, and shining down on you, with no filter. It could be harsh over a dining room table, no matter what bulb you use.
It also has a foot on/off switch on the cord, which makes sense, given the height of the shade, but that to me, is an awkward element, depending on where you put the base. It is plastic, and not heavy, so it might flip over, so you might have to add one more step in turning it on or off.
It's funky, and fun. But unless you REALLY want this kind of lamp, despite its great price, you might want to think about something more traditional. That's just my thinkin'.

I have been very happy with these lamps. Purchased one back in March 2011, upon recept, I decided I needed a second one since I loved it so much. I've been happy with them up until about a month ago, I decicded to reposition one of them and the arm broke at the base of the marble/screw in stand. Not sure how I can fix, and I'm sure its too late for any replacement/or new lamp. However, I love them so much I might be willing to spend the money having it fixed at a lighting store. All in all, a great purchase!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Pretty Good.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
the quality is not good, the way the lamp hangs puts a lot of weight on the base, over time the metal rod has bent and the metal weakened so that it will not stand straight. I have had this lamp for a year now, the has bent twice and I was able to fix it however the third time it bent it didn't have enough tensile strength left to stay upright anymore.
It really is a beautiful lamp and I love it I just wish it was of better quality.
I would recommend the style of lamp but try a different company.

I've had this lamp for over a year and I'm still impressed by it. This is a knock off of a designer lamp that costs thousands of dollars. Other outlets sell this lamp but this is definitely the cheapest price I've seen it advertised for. The lamp shade is made of a filmsy plastic material that is coated white on the inside (presumably to protect it from the heat of the lightbulb) and resembles stainless steel on the outside. The lamp is easy to assemble, although the marble base is very, very heavy.
HI rrboyceiii, unfortunately we do not have an inventory to check the height differential but we were able to confirm through reviews the height is adjustable. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 28, 2014
