very beautiful lamp and just the right height - obviously it is not authentic stained "glass" for this price but you would not know it by looking at it - very easy to assemble - need to use small bulbs as others have mentioned so they do not show from the bottom but with 2 different bulb sockets you have choices for brightness - have your vacuum ready when you open the box as there is a lot of styrofoam balls going everywhere!!! perhaps they could consider more environmentally friendly packaging?
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? good
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
Very pleased with this lamp! I have a mission style recliner and arm chair and this lamp complements both of them beautifully. It also looks good with another mission style torchiere lamp I bought at a local Target store years ago. I like the lower height of this floor lamp - it is perfect for reading. My only complaint is that the bulbs show through a bit depending on where you are sitting. I plan to replace the bright day light white cfl bulbs I have with those that cast a softer light. Overstock came through with flying colors-ordered the lamp on Thursday, & received it the following Tuesday. Item was well packed and assembly was easy.

I ordered a pair of these lamps to provide accent lighting along one wall of a large living room, and am quite happy with the purchase. The colors are rich and intense, and when the light is on they create a warm glow. The lamp takes two bulbs which you can control individually, so if you want less light you have that option. The material is not glass, some kind of man-made product, but I can't afford the price of a hand crafted glass lamp, and unless you're actually holding the shade, it looks expensive. Everyone comments on how sharp they look and I'll definitely be inclined to order again in the future.
Other reviews prepared me for the product. Plastic, not glass for the shade (despite what overstock claims). A little shorter than you may think. Make sure you open package in the garage and have a vacuum cleaner ready for the styrafoam debris (as cautioned by a previous reviewer). This mets our need. Wasn't disappointed nor pleasantly surprised. Basically OK. Many thanks for the previous reviews.
This is a very attractive floor lamp at a fantastic price. Well made and very easy to assemble. Main complaint (as with other commenters) is that when seated one looks up into the bulbs. This may be common to ALL floor lamps but it would be nice if there were a baffle of some kind to hide the bulbs. As others have suggested, unpack this in your garage or outside - it's securely shipped but the solid Styrofoam packaging breaks apart as you unpack, scattering little pieces everywhere. I wish everyone would stop using Styrofoam altogether anyway as it takes >500 years to break down!
I would have given this four stars if it wasn't for the fact that the first lamp arrived broken and was a table lamp. I don't know who did the packing but the lampshade was placed in a garbage bag and not wrapped in anything protective so it just kinda bounced around in the box. Needless to say, it was a wreck when I received it. Customer service was very nice and had another sent out right away . Not as good quality as some other Tiffany lamps I have but it's OK for what I paid.
I bought this lamp for about 1/3 the price at my local lighting lighting gallery where I had already bought a similar table lamp. I went with the darker shade because my big screen TV shows glare from any lighting that reflects against the screen and it is distracting. The packaging was very good. The base is heavy making the lamp very stable. The post are made up of heavy steel tubes that screw together, I added Locktite to the threads and it is rock-solid. This is an elegant and attractive lamp that will look good in your home. I ordered soft pink 60w bulbs on line for a soft and warm glow. It was very easy to assemble.
