I bought this lamp from Overstock approximately five years ago and kept it in my office at work. I love it today as much as I did five years ago, and promised myself that as soon as I bought a house (vs. my small apartment), I'd buy at least one for my house. Well, now that I'm a proud homeowner, I immediatley ordered one for my house and was sooo excited. Everyone comments on this lamp in my office. I was very disappointed as the first one I received years ago was red just like the one in the picture. This one I could tell as soon as I unwrapped it and before I lit it was not red. I waited to see what it looked like lit...light purplish color. VERY disappointing. I don't like the color at all (personal preference, I guess). The dark red vs. light purple makes all the difference in the world. I logged on today to see if anyone else complained of this issue and, lo and behold, someone else left the exact same review today. I am going to call Overstock and see if this was a "bad lot," and if there is anything they can do to remedy this. If you like purple, it's pretty. I don't, and I did not get the product that was on the website (which is clearly a deep red). This is why it gets two stars from me. If it were red like the pic, it would get 5+. Overstock, please bring back the red!! If you can't, please take a photo of the new lampshade and re-label it so it is not so misleading; it is a VERY different color than the one on the website (and the one I previously received).
I just received the lamp today. It does look a little more purple than I would like it to when the light is turned off, but it is definitely red when the light is turned on. The base is solid and arrived in good condition. It is a pretty nice lamp and the floor on and off switch is a nice feature.
The lamp arrived quickly and was packaged well. It was easy & quick to put together and it has good weight to it for balance.. It gives nice ambience to our den and blends very well with our western motif. We are very pleased with its look and the value is excellent also!
I have been looking for some time and this was just perfect. The colors a vribrant red and sage. Good workmanship. It fit in very well with my Tuscan decore. The size was good for the small-ish space I am using it. And the price was very good.
pretty shade, my boyfriend really liked it, but I thought it would be more red. Also the cord is very short, and the switch is a floor button so it's suspended in the air because of the inadequate cord length. The base seems sturdy- Doesn't give off a ton of light, definitely a pretty accent torchiere though
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No, pretty but definitely dark purplish, more red when lit
- How is the quality of the product? shade is nice, seems sturdey, cord is WAY TOO SHORT
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes, except for color
Have had this since Sept-2010, just writing a review now. This lamp is beautiful, with vibrant colors that come alive when the lamp is lit, but don't expect to get much light from it. If you're looking for an accent piece whose job is to look good, and make you smile when it's casting its warm glow, grab this. If you want to sit and read a book by the light of a lamp, or to illuminate a room, keep shopping. The colors when lit, by the way, are more pinkish/purple than the vibrant red it appears to be when turned off (or in the photo here).. ALSO, I just noticed that the glass in the braiding at the top of the shade is a solid, pale lime green on mine, not variegated as it is shown here. I'm fine with that, but if that's a deal-breaker for you, be forewarned, although it sounds from other reviews that the exact version shipped changes over time...
The first Tiffany lamp I received, my reaction was of disbelief at how much more beautiful the lamp is in person ......and this lamp is no different. Every one that sees the lamp asks where I got it and then are in awe of how little I paid for it. This torch lamp is visually stunning, easy to put together and adds that wow factor to any room ............and it's a fantastic buy!
I had been eyeing this lamp for a while, hesitating to buy. But finally I bit the bullet and purchased this and I am so happy with it! It is bigger than I anticipated and gives a really lovely light in my living room. Not a super bright lamp, but I like the subtle, calm kind of glow it gives the room. Mine was a deep red color; not purple at all and is, of course, brighter when lit and darker in color when the light is off. The foot switch on the floor is nice too. Highly recommended!
My particular torchiere shade is not nearly as complex and nuanced as the one depicted, but very lovely nonetheless. A muted plum color when unlit…comes alive and becomes a vibrant, fiery red when lit. My solution: a long-life bulb kept on continuously. Quite pleased with the attractive product and its irresistible price.
Excellent choice to add more light in my living room. I now have 2 torchiere, plus a butterfly, and two other small accent lights. I use lamps for mood lighting more than anything else. Easy to assemble but makes a mess with all the styrofoam packing.
I live in a rural location and I was very pleased to find this lamp on Overstock as it was the coloring that I was looking for to decorate my home. I compared other places such as Home Depot and Lowe's and found this lamp to be affordable for the quality.

I bought one of these lamps year ago and have been very happy with it. I purchased this new one hoping to have a matched pair. The new one has glass that is much lighter and streaky than the first. Also the braiding on top is much larger. They are not a matched set by any stretch. They need to update the picture as I can see people being misled by it. I would hope they would go back to the original as it is far better looking than the current one. My husband liked the new one so I didn't send it back. So glad I bought the original years ago so I at least have one I like.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the one pictured is like one I bought years ago, the current offering is lighter in color and not as nicely contructed
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? this is my second purchase of this lamp. the quality has taken a hit.
As usual, my order was delivered faster than expected (on a Saturday, even). The lamp was easy to put together, too. The only problem is that the colors don't look anything like in the picture. The part that looks like a chain around the top is a solid, bright mossy green; it has none of the variations of blues and yellows in the picture. When lit, the main color of the glass around the stars is light purple, nowhere near the red shown online. I will keep the lamp because it is pretty and well made, but I may not be able to use in the room I bought it for because the colors are so different from what I expected..
I have now bought 5 Tiffany Style Lamps from Overstock and am completely satisfied with everything about them. I love the appearance, quality and style. I always get compliments on all of the lamps. I highly recommend any of the Tiffany style lamps, some might not appear exactly in color shades as on website but they are always sooo pretty and go great in my house. I hope this helps anyone who is deciding on purchasing any of the tiffany lamps.
After reading other reviews of this lamp, I thought it would emit more light, but it is more decorative than anything else. It really just lights the area very close to it. As decorative lighting goes, though, it looks very nice. Up close, you can tell that it's cheaply made because the glass looks like it came out of a kid's stained glass kit. But from across the room, it's quite pretty. For someone who wants a light that looks good, this does the job. I, for one, prefer a mix of functionality and beauty - which for the price is probably hard to find. Also, I saw a few others received greasy products, and ordered anyway, hoping to be an exception. Unfortunately, my lamp, too, was covered in grease. A yucky mess. I know, it looks like I hate this lamp. Despite my complaints, I still like it. I'm just not in love.
I can't even express how much I love this lamp...it is so beautiful! I was fascinated by it the minute that I saw it on Overstock, & once it arrived...I had to order a second one! I now have both lamps in my living room, & I adore them. They are simply gorgeous and unique...especially for the price! As others may have mentioned, the shades are made from cut/colored plastic...not glass. But it's hardly noticeable, and most people would never realize that they aren't genuine. They are very heavy, and very well made, with rich & beautiful colors. I loved these lamps so much that I bought another pair in blue, for a second room. Those lamps were very slightly irregular...as one of them was a little shorter than the other...but I don't think many people would notice, & I didn't have a problem like that with these lamps. Another thing that I love is the fact that the switch is at the bottom...it's a little button attached to the cord, and you can simply tap it on or off with your foot, when entering or exiting the room! Great feature! Assembly was easy, as most floor lamps are easy to assemble. These are very heavy though! The only other thing that I feel is important to know is that: These are really more of accent lights, than primary lights... I wouldn't recommend these lamps as a primary source of light for any room, unless you want a very dim den-like room...and even then, they are very muted. The color shines through beautifully...but they don't project the light throughout the room...they simply light up the small area that they are in...like a corner. And I have tried them with all different variations of light bulbs. I have the 2 red ones in my living room, and they're nice to have when watching TV...but for anything else, I need a lot more light! Still, I would purchase these lamps over and over and over again, because they are just so gorgeous and unique, and affordable!
