The lamps were delivered in quick order..... The shades....whoever designed was a genius to get a flat shade to open to a square. Once I learned how to open the shades....perfect. Very pleased with the product. Nice weight, good quality shade, look far more expensive than asking price.

Nice lamps. Not exactly what I was hoping for from the photos. The faux marble ball towards the bottom doesn't look like faux marble at all, more like speckled paint or something. That is probably the only part of this lamp I'm not real happy with. The shades are better than I thought they would be after reading all the poor reviews on them. Wish you could get more from a lamp for the price (real metal, etc.), but when thoroughly searching for new lamps, have found that lamps are just plain expensive! To get what I really want would have cost me at least *** or more a piece and I am not about to pay that for a lamp. So when you think about your paying *** a piece for this set, that is a totally fair and decent price.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Close, but not totally.
- How is the quality of the product? Good.
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes.
I purchased a set of these lamps and was very pleased. The lampshade was a little hard to get stretched open to get the stays in place. I couldn't do it myself. The lamp itself is of very good quality and fits nicely on a nightstand. They were shipped out faster than I thought they would be also.
I received the 2 lamps today, and one of them was broken. Customer Service was very helpful and nice about replacing it. However these lamps cost *** a piece and are made of some cheap plastic material. I was hoping for something alot nicer for that price. You can tell that the lamp is just one solid piece and the sections are just painted differently to make it look like metal, stone ect. however it is just some sort of resin. The lamp shades are nice and dont know why anyone else had probs assembling it, it was very easy. So I would search more to find a better lamp for this price.
I received the lamps in about 5 days. They were easy to assemble. The lamp shades are easy if you follow the directions and look for the red arrows on the pull tabs when assembling. They look very nice with my new furniture. I would recommend them to anyone. I love how they look!!!
The lamps arrived promptly but one had several defects. After talking to customer service, a replacement was promptly sent. For the price I believe them to be of good quality. The shades were a little difficult for me to assemble due to arthritic hands. However once assembled I am pleased in how they look. One of the reasons I purchased the lamps was due to them being different than most I have seen in the stores. I really like the look of the lamps, especially the bronze tone of the base.
Getting these lamps was the hardest part, But Overstock certainly did deliver! First the bases are not silver as shown But more of a gold black tone not bright gold thou. I can't believe how beautiful these lamps are. They are a 3 way light takes a 100 watt bulb. For whatever you need these lamps will make a wonderful statement. Definetly worth waiting for!
I am thrilled. Lamps arrived so quickly and they're just beautiful. They look very rich and the shades are really nice and simple to put together (they just pop into place). Be careful not to accidentally throw away the pieces you need to fasten the shade to the lamp as I almost missed them. They're hidden inside the styrofoam with a piece of cardboard taped to the top. I think a lot of the people who posted that they were missing pieces probably threw them out without knowing.
Like others noted, my lamp also arrived with missing hardware. While Overstock was good about shipping these parts after I contacted them, it was still inconvenient to not have everything arrive as it should have. Since so many buyers have had this same problem with these lamps, Overstock needs to address that with the supplier. It would save them and the buyers time. That said, I like the lamps. Some people do not like the shades. I don't mind them. They would look nicer if they were not off-white and were beige instead. But they aren't ugly shades.
If I had known that even the parts of the lamp that look like metal are really made of resin, I would not have bought the lamps. They are attractive, but not what I expected. When I opened one of the lamps, the finial was already broken (it too is made of resin). I will say that customer service at Overstock was very helpful and fast about sending me a replacement finial.
