I ordered this lamp because it matched the globes on my ceiling fan in our keeping room and it arrived within a week. It was well packaged and easy to put together without any tools. I ordered it to sit next to the sofa as a reading lamp for my husband, so I was a bit disappointed at the height of the lamp and the location of the switch. Although the lamp's dimensions were stated in the ad, I don't remember seeing that the on/off switch was located on the power cord and sits on the floor. This makes it a little inconvenient as a reading lamp since you have to get up to turn it on and off. The lighting is substantial and I do like that the globe's angle is adjustable. Since it matched my ceiling fan perfectly, I decided to keep the lamp. I love ordering from Overstock. I find the items I have ordered are all great values and you can't beat the shipping costs---provided you don't have to do a return.
--This was part of my first-time ever purchase: I bought 2 tiffany-style lamps on Overstock. --I own about a half-dozen Tiffany-style lamps -- not the pricey antiques you can get in NYC from a dealer ("the real deal") -- but nice ones that look antique but aren't -- these are only lamps I have in my condo. --About this particular lamp...The shade per se is not bad, but it's not great, either. Not a deal braker. --The problem is the screws and the holes, and this is a big problem! Three screws are needed to affix the shade to the lamp. Mine came with two -- I was perfectly willing to go to the hardware store and improvise since, let's face it, we're all here for bargains, right? -- but two of the three holes were slightly too large for these screws (you could call them "stripped" away, but it's the holes, not the screws, that are the problem), and I'm afraid no screws can really work. --I do NOT recommend this product and am requesting my money back. Buyer Beware.
This is a great lamp for the value. The shade is not glass but a very sturdy plastic type material and looks fine. The base is very sturdy metal base with a great finish. I looked for some time for a nice looking floor lamp that was a good value and this is it.
As was the case with many of the other reviewers, the switch has fallen off a couple of times. Worst of all is the fact that the shade has fallen off and broken not once, but twice. This was not due to the instability of the screws, but rather due to the shade simply falling apart at the seams. I would not recommend this product as the workmanship leaves a lot to be desired. What a piece of junk!
I thought the light would be taller. It states that it is 60 " high but the main pole is not 60 " its about 4' tall. It is a pretty lamp. The screws to hold on the lampshade are strip and therfore the lamp shade is loose. The switch to turn the light on and off is very flimsy and keeps falling off.
I'm sorry to read of the negative experiences of some reviewers with this lamp. My experience is far different -- the lamp is sturdy, heavily weighted, and it went together with no problems -- thankfully! I was looking for an attractive lamp that would go in a young man's room -- one that is durable and not too expensive. This product fits the bill and it has had no problems (eg. switch or shade falling off) over the course of a number of months. On the basis of my own experiences, I would recommend this product.

This lamp is beautiful with our mission furniture. The shade does have a little yellow in it but it's very rich looking. The lamp we received had some damage on the shade with the metal decal loose, but overstock sent us a new one very quickly. We like that the light is soft and we can direct it where we need it. I do like the floor switch - just think it would be better if the switch were closer to the base of the lamp, since it has to be turned on before you sit down. Not a problem, though- would buy it again.
Easily put together - provides good reading and ambient light with a 60 watt fan bulb. Standard bulb is really too big. Floor switch was an unexpected plus. Bronze base is heavy and stable, blends in unobtrusively with the rest of the furniture.
Nice looking lamp for the price. SHOULD HAVE WAITED TO SEE WHAT WE WANTED IN PERSON..... As far as quality go¿s, metal welds on base up-rights are very delicate and the Solder is painted that holds glass in place on shade, had to send back the first lamp due to poor workmanship of stand. although we must give Overstock.com an A+ on customer service we had a call tag that day and our new lamp within the week. At no extra cost to us.
I was sceptical about this lamp since some of the reviews indicated problems. However, it was the look I wanted, the price was great, and I figured I could make it work.. After receiving, I was initially impressed with how solidly it was built. The metal's patina was perfect for the antique look of the lamp. The shade was well built , using good materials. If anything, the shade could have been a bit larger, making it more proportional to the solid quality of the stand. The only negative was the turning on/off switch, located on the pipe. It was too short, requiring you to get your hand at the proper position, so you would have the leverage to turn off. However, it did work fine and I probably could easily find a replacement. A lotta lamp!!! Assembly was no problem. In fact, my wife easily assembled it before I could get to it.
The lamp looks great. It is a little bit time consuming to put together. I also have some trouble with the shade not wanting to stay put. It tries to droop down sometimes even after ensuring that the adjustable screw is tightened. Overall it is a nice lamp.
