The lamp was a complete disappointment. The image depicts a beautiful, vibrant, and elegant glass shade. Upon opening my package, I discovered a bland and monotonous color scheme that did not do justice to the picture online. The fractions of glass seemed to be clumsily fashioned together and their shades failed to transitions smoothly. The base and pole is heavy, sturdy, and quality, but the base and pole did not attract me to this purchase. I lost $10.00 shipping the package back to Overstock.com.
When I opened the box I was puzzled. I thought that somehow I had been sent the wrong lamp. Then I realized that it was just completely different colors than imaged on the website.What had attracted me to purchase this was all the warm orange tones in the image. But everything that looks orange and warm on the picture turned out yellow on the actual lamp on the top and on the feathers. Also, the bottom trim which is yellow on the bottom rim is actually light blue on this lamp. The result is a very different lamp than what I wanted and I am returning it.
I was looking for a lamp to place behind a chair for reading. This lamps works well for what I purchased it for. It was easy to assembly and looks beautiful in my living room. Downfall.... it is rather short, which I knew it might be when I purchased based on other reviews. But, I put it on something to give it more height and it works great, fortunately for me, no one can see the stand I created for it (it's hidden behind a chair in a corner. As for value, the price is right in line for the other lamps I looked at online as well in stores. But... since it is shorter, I feel it could have been cheaper, considering this. Overall, not a bad buy and it does what I need it to do. I liked the colors and the look when I purchased to go with my house colors and decoration. It does that perfectly.
I was pleasantly surprised with the beauty of this lamp, and what a nice accent it made in my living room. That touch of red and bit of orange is a feng shui secret - put a bit of red in every room to help make a color impact that feels good! This is not a super-tall lamp so be sure to pay attention to its measurements. It's definately tall enough to put by an easy chair to read by. Also, there is no covering over the 2 bulbs located under the shade - they are just your regular screw-in light bulbs (of course the shade covers the bulbs, but if you're seated below the shade, you can look up and you'll see the bare bulbs). They take 60 watt bulbs - which means the light can be bright since the bulbs are uncovered. Try 40 watts, or just turn one of the 60 watts on instead of both, to be easier on the eyes if you're sensitive to light. Really a very pretty piece, that I put together in about 8 minutes (which includes unpacking it) and hey - for the beauty you get, you can't beat the price.
This is the first purchase I and my wife have made from overstock.com and we have not been let down by this purchase. Greatly the opposite! The lamp was shipped in a cardboard box and it was fully enclosed in Styrofoam and it was very easy to assemble. Even without reading the instructions. Within five minutes I had it put together and was pleasantly startled by the brilliance and beauty of the colors! The shaft and base are very well made and the base is heavy enough not to worry about it easily tipping over. Though the colors do vary from the picture on line a bit it is even more beautiful and we are very happy with it! The only problem we have with this lamp is that it makes our other lamps in the house look cheap and ugly! The lamp shade IS made of stained glass. Stained glass has a deferent feel than ordinary glass so don't be surprised if it feels like it's made of some form of plastic because it's not! We'll be back for more lamps in the future, and God knows what else! Thanks overstock.com!
This lamp is just what I wanted! Colorful, a little bit funky, and it's heavy enough so that it doesn't wobble like my last bedside lamp (it drove me *crazy*). The only complaint I have is very minor: the stained glass has some small discoloration near the top of the shade in the yellow-y green portion that makes the glass look brown and muddy. I don't love that. But for the price, it's really awesome quality! I'm happy.
Well packaged and quickly delivered. And can't argue with the price. These lamps are pieces of art. Wish the shade had a more translucent purple glass around the lower edge, but if you have ever seen the backside of a peacock, it works. Did you know they can fly? Back to the lamp...was easy to assemble, and just be sure to get the smallest and most efficient 60 watt light bulbs because size and heat output count. Yes, I would buy this again.
Lamp came on time and in good condition. Is a solid nice lamp...but not what I ordered. Colors are not at all what is on the website. THERE IS NO RED ON THIS LAMP....with the exception of little single red marbles embedded in the glass: the panes are NOT RED. The orange up top is whitish and extremely light in color...not a "warm" tone at all. This lamp is very light in color; looks more like a ladies Sunhat than a peacock. Over stock should really change the pics online if they want to keep selling this lamp.
