if you are buying this lamp because you like the colors in the picture on the website, DO NOT BOTHER!! I like my lamp and I'm happy to have it but it does not look anything like this picture. the colors are very dark and mostly green. There is no purple or ivory in it anywhere. It was very easy to assemble and I love the step on/off switch on the floor. The worksmanship on the shade is only ok - its rough and chunky, looks a bit sloppily put together. All in all I think it is pretty to look at and a good deal as long as your expectations aren't too high
Great product, looks pretty. I have seen several review of these "tiffany style" products sold by Overstock where someone complains that the 300 some odd pieces of glass feel like plastic. So what? If this was actually tiffany glass, or someone actually handmade these lamps, or panels or what have you, they'd be a helluva lot more expensive. For the money, this looks great. I don't anticipate that I will have any guests who go into my bedroom and start feeling and inspecting my lamp and call me out on my fake tiffany. If they do, they're weird and I wouldn't want them as friends anyway. The colors are very pretty, it was easy to put together, and shipped very quickly and it was packed well. The one thing I will mention is that there is no dimmer and the on/off switch is on the cord to the wall, a "foot pedal". That's no problem, but I used the customer service chat window on Overstock to ask about those things since they aren't in the description and the customer service person told me that there was a dimmer and that the switch was at the top of the lamp. So don't aways trust the information the CSR gives you.
This item was extremely easy to put together; very sturdy and well made. The only issue we have with it is the lack of lavenders and purples [as pictured] to enhance the brilliant blues - of which there are not enough. Much of the shade has creams and pale yellow pieces of glass. It is lovely placed in a window with sunshine during the day and is a beautiful statement when glowing after dark.
The Tiffany-style Peacock Torchiere appears more purple or lilac in the on-line ad and less so in person. As a matter of fact there is hardly any purple color in it, rather mossy green tones and ambers. Still very beautiful but if buying as a purple or lilac accent, think again. This is shared in another review. Assembly was easy, same as the Tiffany-style Dragonfly Torchiere lamp I purchased a month before. Both lamps are sturdy but have slight (AND ONLY SLIGHT) flaws, not enough to return or feel I was taken by this product. Best to use a fluorescent bulb in the lamp, which raises the light "higher" in the lamp and illuminates the glass shade better. Conventional bulbs sit lower in the lamp and do not illuminate high enough to bring out the beauty of the lamp shade.
Really happy with this one, Overstock! Heavy base and very sturdy. Gorgeous blue colors in the tiffany lamp itself especially with the light on. I've been looking around town for about a year and the average price was $125-150 range. So, saving at least $45 and having it at my door in about 3 days was the cherry on top! Thanks, Overstock -- you came through again!!
I bought one of these some time back, and have ust ordered two more. They are very attractive and of good quality. The lead between the pieces of glass is well finished on the outside; less so on the reverse inside the shade. The stand is nicely done in a sort of "aged bronze". It is in three pieces and the joins are even, although obvious. Altogether a fine buy, and great value at this low price.
The Bad: No way to adjust brightness other than to change the bulb. It comes with a warning sticker that says use 60 watt bulb or lower to reduce fire danger. However a 60 watt bulb in this lamp does not put out a lot of light. The brightness in these kind of lamps also affects the specific colors in the stained glass. I would describe mine as mostly green, yellow and blue. The Good: I am more than happy with the colors that mine are. The glass is beautiful and extremely well made. The lamp looks like it's worth a lot more than what I paid for it on Overstock. I think every visitor to my home since I got them has complimented me on them. Also they are extremely sturdy, they weigh nearly 20 lbs apiece and the base is very solid. The lamps are also easily assembled with only a small phillips screwdriver needed and no small bolts or screws. Shipped from LA to NC, I received mine in 7 business days.
This lamp is absolutely gorgeous! Now, if you're looking for an actual Tiffany lamp this is definitely not for you! The shade is not made of glass and the lamp post is a plastic type material. But it looks like the real thing and when lit up it is stunning! Works perfectly in my living room and I would definitely buy another one.
I really want to love this lamp. I read other reviews that said the colors were too dark and didn't match the picture but mine was right on. The quality of the base is heavy and well made. When put together it looks very good. Some people said the glass is plastic but I can't tell.. If it is its still a nice quality and doesn't bother me. If it was cheap looking or low quality materiel that would really bother me, but it's nice. The issue is when you put it together it stands totally crooked. Not just a little, but drive you crazy crooked! I took it apart a few times trying to fix it. I put sticky pads under the base but it was still way off. I was going to send it back but honestly I'm too impatient to wait for another and I was worried the replacement lamp shade would not be the right colors like this one. So I put a sticky pad ( like you put on the bottom of chairs to protect floors) on one side of where the base screws into the rod and cut it to fit with a razor. That fixed it for me but its still annoying to pay anything for a product that has a defect. It looks very pretty at night with the light on. If it wasn't for the defect my review would be 5 stars.
Beautiful lamp - very easy to assemble. Very happy with this purchase. Requires bulbs under 100w. I would recommend higher end as the lamp isn't extremely bright and a low end bulb will make it look dim. Overall very nice lamp well worth the money!
I bought this for my daughter along with the peacockTiffany table lamp. We placed brighter bulbs in them and they are just lovely. This lamp has an extensive and warm cast of light. It really adds class to a room.

I had bought a similar lamp, same style, different color, previously. Having read the reviews, with people complaining about the colors not being vibrant enough I was a little concerned--but knew I could use it someplace. Soft colors, nice finish, and I like the foot switch.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very well. I assume the light was on when the picture was taken--the lamp is beautiful
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice and heavy--often floor lamps (that are not very expensive) are too light.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very nice
