These lamps look great and are easy to assemble. It would be nice if the pole was a single piece, but I understand what that would do to the shipping costs. The packing materials can be a little messy so I recomend opening this in a garage or on a porch if you don't want styrofoam everywhere.
looks great and its an amazing deal - can't get a price like this anywhere else. I had it together and softly glowing in our living room in about 15 minutes. Super easy to assemble. It makes great ambiant light and the colors are lovely - pretty true what you see shown in the picture.
I was very pleased with the colors of the lamp and it is bigger then other torchiere lamps I have ordered. I would recommend this lamp it goes very nice in my husbands study and he likes it too. I shop on Overstock often and have been happy with most things I have ordered.
The lamps do look pretty good from a distance - I bought two for either side of my fireplace. However, when you get closer to the shades you find many of the pieces of "leading" separating from the glass..making the shade's stability questionable. As others have said, this a good price for a tiffany torchier lamp, but I would not want to recommend them to my friends because I'm not sure how long they are going to last with cleaning, etc.
I just got this product tonight. It was very easy to assemble. It only took me about 10 minutes and most of that was getting it out of the packaging. The quality wasn't quite what I expected. It says it is glass, but it seems like plastic to me. The colors were fairly close to the picture, but not exact. Not a bad buy for the price, but no way it's worth the full value listed!
I got what I paid for. The glass is made in china and is such poor quality it looks and feels like plastic. The leading of the glass is quite sloppy. The three pieces of the pole screw together, and the female piece is held in place by compression; I had to glue my pieces into the pole to assemble the lamp. I have a flourescent bulb that sits higher than an incandescent and the collors show better. This is an attractive lamp, but not a quality item.
I read the other reviews with much interest, and was fascinated with the differences of opinion. My lamp came well packaged and undamaged. There were no instructions, but the ease of assembly was such that you didn't need any. The styrofoam did crumble and could make a mess, but if you unpack it outside, it's really not a problem. It's stands as straight as an arrow, and, with its soft, diffused lighting, creates a romantic atmosphere. I'm not too crazy about the design of the on-off floor switch, but,all in all, that is really a small matter.
I really liked this lamp. Purchased two lamps. One of them seem to have loose pieces within the first year, even though it was just sitting in the corner. Unfortunately I don't know if this damage existed when I received it and just didn't notice it in time to report it.
