I was impressed with the glass of the lamp. It is packed in styrofoam though that breaks apart into seemingly hundreds of tiny pieces that take FOREVER to clean up. I have tried over and over and I can not get the top to be level on the base. I think the bolt that it sits on on the rod is crooked. Irritated.
Beautiful. I bought two (one for each side of a long reclining sofa. The shade curls down so it's not blinding and because each lamp has a spot for two bulbs it's good for reading. Each bulb has it's own dangle pull switch....great for the owner, but my cat loves them....so cat owners....wrap those things up when not in use, or this could give a whole new meaning to the word "floor lamp".
First of all, the globe is absolutely beautiful! But two issues keep this from being 5 stars for me..I had hoped after reading other reviews, that I would be lucky, and mine would be straight, it isn't...It is pretty crooked. I solved it by changing the placement so the lean isn't noticeable looking at it from the front. Secondly, as other reviews have noted, it is shorter than I would like, but I knew that going in. I wish the bulbs were higher, but for the price, I can live with it. It really is beautiful colors, and that is what is the most important thing to me. Keep a vac. handy for all the styrofoam!
Because of the shape of the globe I thought the problem with the blinding light bulb in your eyes sitting close to it wouldn't be a issue but it's still an issue. I positioned the lamp behind me which helped but that means you can never turn to look at it without the blinding effect so why buy a beautiful glass art globe if you can never look at it unless you are not close to it. That's annoying. I have 2 Tiffany style table lamps that don't give me this problem at all. The other issue with this lamp is that the stem definitely leans. If you face it towards where you sit it doesn't matter but from a side view of the lean you can certainly recognize that the lamp is leaning. I've read other reviews that said the same so they are putting out products without quality control. On the positive side the glass is really pretty. The the little red glass beads are brighter and prettier in person than the picture on the website. The colors and style of the lamp has a timeless sophistication. The little dangling on/off chains gives it a classy look. I don't know how they can fix the design problem with the light bulbs but I just put that lamp in a different room that I don't use as often. That way I can turn it on and see it from a distance without being blinded sitting beside it.
Beautiful lamp. It replaces an antique lamp shade that was broken. The colors are vibrant and bright. The shape is This lamp shade replaces an antique shade that was broken. I put it on the antique floor lamp base . The colors are rich and vibrant. It looks great with my other antique lamps. The quality is very good. I also have the base to put another shade on. I would recommend this lamp if you are looking for this type lamp.
I have the matching table lamp that I got from a local furniture store a few years ago (Overstock.com sells it too), so I was so excited when I saw this floor lamp. It gives the room a nice soft warm light, and the duel light bulbs allow you to adjust the brightness level. Each bulb creates a different mood when lit on its own. Truly gorgeous.
This lamp has only one drawback. The switches do not work right. But it is so beautiful and so elegant that I got an electrician and he fixed for me. I have seen this lamp at ****** for much more money. They were nice enough to give a little discount for the inconvenience. I will always buy for overstock because they back up their merchandise.
I knew the minute the box was delivered faded and busted that this was someone's return. I opened the box that had been taped all over and saw a child's drawing on the inside of the flap. The shade was broken and not even in the plastic bag that was inside. There was no return slip inside or anything on the outside. (a clear slip that was empty) The pole looked dark and cheap and the finial was missing. The shade also looked cheaply made. It looked like plastic. The warehouse sent a damaged,returned item without even looking at the product before sending it. Quality has gone way down. I had bought many things in the past and there has always been a slight defect or they sent me the wrong item, but I kept the items anyway. Not this time! I believe their merchandise are seconds. I thought that I would give then another try. I'm sorry that I did. Off to the post office without a return slip. Waste of time and money!
This floor lamp is gorgeous in appearance, both the large glass Tiffany lamp shade and base unit. It is my belief that to purchase this same product in a retail store, it would cost $$$$. Overstock.com has some great buyers who seek only top-notch items and pass along the savings to its customers. I absolutely love the purchaser reviews...it is an important vehicle in which I make final decisions and is much appreciated.
