This lamp is exquisite and the pattern is elegant. The lamp, when lit, radiates an amber hue which encompasses my entire bedroom and creates a calm ambiance. It accents and brings out the gold/burgundy red colors in my room. I highly recommend it. It is incredibly easy to assemble. If I can assemble it with my rheumatoid arthritic hands, anyone can.
If colors are important you may not be happy with this lamp. The image shows that the ribbon-like edging that runs along the top is a deep amber. This trim is entirely green on the lamp I received. The picture shows a teal green scallop; this is white on my lamp. The lamp does cast an amber glow so if the green doesn't conflict with your color scheme, this is a pretty lamp. However, it's not right that the manufacturer does not warn the customer that some of the colors may not be as shown; therefore I would not recommend it because they may or may not receive the lamp as pictured, or even the lamp colors I received.
I received the lamp and it doesn't have any colors like the picture. I understand there will be some differences but this one had green and blue in it also. Maybe they sent me the wrong one?? I actually took pictures of it to show them that it looks nothing like the picture. The quality is good and it seems very sturdy but just wasn't what I expected.
I purchased this lamp for my daughter's bedroom. When we received it, the lamp looked better in my family room, so that's where it stayed. The colors are beautiful and the glasswork is of good quality. The lamp is heavy and not easily tipped over. Lighting is good. The switch is a push-button attachment on the power cord. The cord length is adjustable as well. Overall, the lamp is beautiful.
The top of the lamp was smaller than I thought it would be and the colors were not as described. There are no red hues on my lamp and the jeweled piece is purple. I don't have anything purple in any of my rooms so it doesn't really fit with the furniture. Had the description said it had purple, I would not have purchased this. Although the base has some weight to it, the lamp top is small for the height of the lamp and it looks cheesey. Definitely not as pretty as the picture. Waste of money.
This lamp is beautiful and the workmanship is superior. I had read the reviews and felt confident that I would like the lamp, but I was thrilled when I saw just how beautiful it was. Setup was easy and fast, the value was outstanding and delivery was timely. I would recommend this lamp to everyone.
This lamp is pretter then the picture. I like the fact that it 's base is heavy and does not tip very easy. When it is lite it casts a soft amber color in my front room and the glass looks wounderful. I like it more every day. It arrived very fast and was very easy to put together. It only took a few minutes and it was ready to be turned on. I had done a lot of looking before I purschaed this lamp and it is right up there in quality. Everyone that has seen my new lamp think it's perfect and I agree. I would order another lamp in a heartbeat if I had a spot for it.
When I received the lamp, It was so well packaged and taped - I actually got a little annoyed. When the lamp was finally revealed, I was pleasantly surprised to see the colors of the glass as well as the weighted based. A perfect torchiere for that certain corner and certainly adds quite a bit of ambiance with the amber colors. It was well worth opening!!
First of all the workmanship of the shade is lovely. The colors were bright, yet warm. Unfortunately the red jewels are actually purple. It totally threw off my color scheme. So I was disappointed by that. Secondly, the threads in the socket didn't line up well. The connection was loose and didn't sit right causing the light bulb to fall off to one side. I had concerns about safety. I can see that there is quality workmanship, I think that the threading of the bolt was the problem. Most likely a fluke. Overstock is refunding my money and paying for return shipping. I will probably order another lamp of this type with a darker red to match my living room.
Don't listen to the picky few reviews below...this is an excellent floor lamp! Some tiffany style lamps only look good when lit, but this one looks great even when not lit...it's still beautiful, elegant and a classy addition to my living room. Great for providing ambient light on a large wall. Looks even better than the picture.
It is a beautiful lamp when lit. The colors come alive with vibrancy. Assembling it was easy, however I hesitate to award five stars because I was a bit disappointed with the material used to create the torchiere. It seemed like plexiglass or something similar which detracts from the quality of the item.
I just purchased this lamp and love it. It took about 15 minutes to pur it together. It does not put out a lot of light but if you are looking for something that gives out dimmer light, this lamp is wonderful. A wonderful value for the money.
The lamp arrived in a well-designed package in 5 days. Assembly was easy and done in less than ten minutes. Simply put, this lamp is beautiful. The warm colors must be seen to be believed. An outstanding addition to our living room at a very affordable price. It works very well with a compact fluorescent bulb, so you can save energy (money) as well. Highly recommended.
