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.
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.
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.
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.
Let me start out by saying that the shade is beautiful, nicer than I expected, and all individual components are very nice. The problems arise in assembly, when the pole and base engineering fails to match the standards present in the shade and overall design. The lamp leans noticeably,for one of two reasons, either its that the pole parts aren't matched with threading (not a big deal), or because the base doesn't sit flat and will require something to balance it. Barring these flaws, which prevent me giving it as a gift, I'd give it higher marks.
Love it! Arrived quickly. Easy to assemble. Beautiful accent piece and really add a nice element to the room. Very dark lamp until illuminated and then the colors become very vibrant! Also a very unique piece.
The glass is beautiful and the different colored beads adds a nice contrast with an over all effect of a warm glow in the room which is perfect for my decor.
The problem I find with this lamp is at the top of the lamp where the glass globe sits on the pedestal .. there is nothing what so ever to fasten it in to the top of the lamp stem or protect it from falling off. The only thing holding it up there is the glass light bulb you screw into the fixture. That whole big globe simply balances itself at the top... Apparently the designer for this lamp either believes in magic or homes without children or pets.
Yes I found the single piece of paper directions with a diagram that also shows nothing to fasten the globe to the top of the pedestal. I also went through every part of the box to make sure I didn't miss something.
Not sending it back as the price to return is not free. I'll keep the lamp but I wouldn't buy this style again and I would not recommend this product.
I put it in the corner behind a table and hopefully nothing will bump it.

Now, in the reviews the person says it takes a 3 WAY bulb. In Overstocks description it says 100 watt bulb. I want one with a 3 WAY bulb. If the customer said it, does it really take a 3 WAY bulb??

This 'DOES' have a regular higher switch and also a floor switch if you want to use it? It will be behind a couch, so I cannot get a lamp that only has a floor switch. Thank you for your help!nancylynnedenver22 on Apr 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
