First, this has absolutely no red in it as the name states. It is a predominate darker orange when lit which adds a wonderful warm glow to the room. The beading colors are sky blue, amber, purple and green. When unlit is similar to subdued carnival glass. This torchiere would fit into many decor styles especially art deco and "old world". My husband was joking he would get a flickering light bulb for it so it would look like it belongs in a medieval castle! It also resembles tiffany lamp shades my husbands g'ma had from the 1800's. We specifically look for unusual lamps and this one fits the bill perfectly. The only negative is that the top part of the metal pole is slightly bent. After debating, we decided to not go through the effort of sending it back and re-ordering, since it is only slightly bent. We have purchased multiple tiffany torchiere lamps from Overstock before w/no problem, and considered this a fluke. We have also seen this same torchiere online at another lamp/lighting store for $300 plus enormous shipping costs. One caution: it calls for a 3-way bulb. We have no doubt that the light bulb socket itself can handle up to 150 watts but know for certainty the leaded glass shade absolutely will not. No leaded glass shade would take that kind of heat without being an extreme fire hazard. You can use a 3-way bulb on the first two lower settings, or just a single wattage bulb. If you are searching for the unusual, this one is for you! You will not be disappointed!
We got this lamp to accompany its matching table lamp. I am still in love with it 3 months later. The colors are beautiful, and change depending on whether it is on or off. I like the option of the foot switch or the traditional switch up top. Every part of this lamp is high quality, and will add a touch of warmth and uniqueness to your decor. Putting it together was easy. The styrafoam packaging is very messy, so plan appropriately when opening.
I have bought many things from Overstock.com with absolutely fantastic and satisfied results.....this lamp was not one of them. It's just not that pretty. The glass part is strangely irradescent yet cheaply made with plastic black balls attatched to it. The picture makes it look much nicer than it is. I was very dissapointed since I have boughten 5 tiffany-style lamps from here and have always been thrilled when I got them. I have never returned any of the products I've bought except this one. Actually it was sent by mistake. I had purchased a different lamp but was sent this one. If it would have been as nice as the others I would have kept it.
This lamp is absolutely beautiful. I recently redecorated my living room and this lamp added just the touch I was looking for. The lamp gives plenty of light, but is muted and not hard on the eyes. I received several compliments on this lamp over the Christmas holiday. Anyone that purchases this lamp will be very pleased.
This set is like art glass. Heavy, beautiful and lovely to look at. Previous people have said the glass balances on the pole. Not true. Screwed in the top pole is a ring that you simply screw off, place glass shade and screw back on the ring. Maybe some people don't know about the ring for torchieres but that's how the glass gets secured
Overall I am pleased. I read the other reviews going into the purchase so I kind of knew what to expect. It provides beautiful light and with the bowl facing up, it reflects nicely off the white ceiling. Assembly was very easy and I like the 3-way light bulb feature. The beaded part at the top is a little delicate (in some places the beads actual move a little - so don't play with them). Very sturdy and beautiful.
I purchased this torchiere lamp a year ago. It's really striking when turned on....however, the switch on the one i purchase started to malfunction and the warranty had run out and I did not purchase an extended warranty. Thinking I was out of luck I spoke to a very helpful customer service rep who at first told me it has been close to a year since you purchased the item and told me if I had the warranty insurance it would be covered, but I told her its a beautiful lamp and I looked forward to seeing it lite every night and since the switch stopped working it didn't light it anymore. She sensed how upset I was and wanted to make things right. To my surprise she sent me a whole new lamp and told me to swap out the malfunctioning part (which was the entire pole/base) and to send back what I didn't need at no charge. They really came through and stepped up to the plate to make their customers happy! Good customer service goes a long way and now I can once again enjoy the beauty of this lamp when lite.
This is a beautiful looking lamp that puts off a soft light. This would not be a lamp to use when doing paperwork. We like to turn it on in the evening when we do not need a bright light in the living room. It gives off a subtle glow. I have received many complements on this lamp.
Beautiful, charming. I put this lamp in this dark little corner of my living room. When turned on, this lamp bathes that corner, and the love seat in front of it, with perfect lighting. The shadow it casts above is a beautiful scalloped, beaded edge shape. Love the colors and unusual shape!.
I have been collecting tiffany style lighting for many years and some of my best lamps have come from Overstock.com. This lamp is exceptional. It is very well made, beautiful warm colors . Heavy ornate base. The lamp shade is larger than I expected. I am a happy customer!!! How can you beat the price and free shipping. Thanks again Overstock !
