I had bought the red ones like these a while ago, & I was so pleased with them that I jumped at the chance to buy 2 of these lamps in blue, when they became available! I bought them for my second bedroom, which we use as a study...& they are very beautiful. As others may have mentioned, the shade is made of cut/colored plastic, not glass...however, you can hardly tell, & they don't look cheap at all. Chances are, most people would never even notice that detail...they look beautiful, and they are heavy & gorgeous. Assembly was a breeze, as usual...typical for most floor lamps, I would say. They're pretty heavy though! I love the fact that they turn on via a button at the bottom, attached to the cord! It's so easy to just tap it on or off with your foot, when entering or exiting the room. :) I would highly recommend these lamps to anyone, because they are just so beautiful and unique.... However, I do have a few words of caution. The two lamps that I ordered are not the same size...one is visibly shorter than the other, although not by much. It wouldn't have been a big deal, if I'd ordered them for different rooms...but because I have both of them in the same room, it's noticeable. I tried to space them far enough apart where it won't be too obvious, and no one seems to have noticed...but it kind of bugs me. ;) Also, I wouldn't use these lamps as a primary source of light for any room. They are more like accent lighting. I have tried all different kinds of intensity of light bulbs with them, and they are always either way too dim, or way too bright. I think it's due to the color of the shade, and the fact that the light is meant to shine through... It wasn't as bad with the red ones that I bought, which I use as the primary source of light in my living room. But with these, for some reason, the light is different...& I would really only use them as accent lighting. Still a gorgeous lamp, & for the price, I would buy them again and again and again! No regrets here! :)
This lamp makes me feel good and smile every time I pass it. Golden sun-colored jewels shining in sparkling royal blue. It gives off plenty of light. Prior to purchase it looked as if the fixture might self-contain the light, but this is not the case. Style-wise my husband thought the pole could be thinner, but I like it just the way it is, so . . . a matter of taste. There is a foot pedal for on/off. Friends at my house have said the same--that this lamp is truly beautiful.
The torchiere lamp looks really pretty when lighted. It also brightens the room it is in. I like the foot switch as well. I don't like that the shade part is made of plastics. I did think it was made of glass when I bought it. The plastic cheapens the lamp.
THIS LAMP IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. THE QUALITY IN BEYOND ANYTHING THAT I IMAGINED FOR THE PRICE. IT IS EXTREMELY WELL MADE, AND WHEN TURNED ON, THE GLOW OF THE LAMP IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR THIS TYPE OF FLOOR LAMP. EXCEPTIONAL VALUE BY FAR!
I am happy I bought this lamp. It is everything I thought it would be. I love these blue/purple colors in my bedroom! I bought it more for a night lite. It has a foot switch and no pull chain or switch by the shade which makes it a bit awkward to use. I would change this if I could. But its too pretty to send back so we use the foot switch. The shade is beautiful and feels like plastic instead of glass, like most of the tiffany lamps I have bought from Overstock. (I don't know the reason why). It was shipped very nicely, unbelieveably safely packed and received in a timely manner. Again, beautiful colors on the shade. Thank you.
Arrived quickly looking just as depicted online. Beautiful craftmanship of blues, tawny, amber , with white stars. Perfect for a bedroom. Pole is thick and scrolled, not thin, cheap metal. Only thing is that it is not as tall as my other torchiere lamps, that though, was my oversite. A very pretty lamp.
I am very disappointed. It is supposed to be cut glass but it feels and sounds very much like plastic. It was easy to assemble which is good because there were no instructions with it. There is a piece of "solder" missing. There was no mention of a foot switch. I have the lamps behind a couch so that is not fun turning them on and off. One of then stis crooked because the base is crooked. It's a shame because I was planning to purchase more!
The lamp arrived quickly with no damage. It took 5 minutes to assemble and is beautiful when lit. I don't usually like floor lamps that must be assembled because they can look cheap, but this one looks great and feels sturdy. My neighbor has already ordered one after seeing mine.
