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.
This lamp is very beutifull. Get many compliments. The red is very vibrant I do use a one hundred watt bulb. Started with a lower which I always use , but I like the way it looks in the window with the higher watts. The different colors dots are also lovely. Not tacky

I love this lamp. For the price, this Tiffany-style lamp is well worth it. I was worried it might be flimsy or bad material but the stem is very sturdy, heavy metal. The stem does come in several parts that have to be screwed into each other but that didn't bother me. It really is a beautiful lamp and accents the room perfectly. Already gotten many complements on it!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the color was slightly more orange than red in real life, but still lovely
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I was impressed with the quality, the stem of the lamp is sturdy metal and the glass is very pretty
How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate
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
