This hand-crafted item and many others come from a third-generation family-run factory in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering, and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

the wood was not of good quality. Could not use it in my breakfast area.Read More
all plastic, hangs off wire only, no chain to take weight, not much weight, but national electric code requires hanger for all fixtures or electrical products , not just wire. about a $** productRead More

I ordered two. These lamps look amazing hanging in my living room. the cords are long enough to be out of the way and they came with all of the hardware required to hang them. Simple to put together too.Read More
Its a great looking lamp. Only catch is I thought it was a chandelier type and it wasn't. We had to re wire to make it a chandelier and for it to be turned on by the light switch. Its meant to mount up but hang and be plugged in at the same time. The end product is what I wanted, I just had to adjust a bit.Read More
This lamp is really pretty and goes well with a Mission style home. The paper has flecks which look nice when the light is lit up. I don't understand how this light is a hanging lamp, however, since is just has a regular cord with no hardware to hang it and the cord is way too short to hang the lamp anyway. Also, the toggle is too close to the lamp so you wouldn't be able to reach it if it was hung. I think this lamp is actually a table lamp, since it has felt pads at the top and a place to put the cord through the side. The lamp should actually be flipped upside down and put on a table. I still plan to use it as a hanging lamp, I just have to switch out the cord.Read More
I was initially pretty impressed by the Akida. In college days, I became pretty familiar with the flimsy "so called" asian room dividers. I was worried this would turn out to be a repeat of those: very cheaply made. However, I have to say though light, the wooden frame is sturdy, the rosewood color was lovely, the shape was small but nice lines and the rice paper is of very good, natural quality (it's a nice off-white in color with some natural variations in texture). The one thing I did not like was the setup. I knew the cord would stick out against the wall (it's stark white, the walls are deep red), so I was prepared. But working with the two included plastic hooks (there were no hooks provided to put it in the ceiling) was difficult at best - the hooks really should be plastic rings instead. I would highly recommend you change these out. The hooks just made placement and hanging more difficult than it should be. Really, it should have been a "plug and play" thing. Oh, and make sure you have a light bulb. We were using it for an ambient light, so we got a 25 watt bulb, which is perfect. When hanging, and with the cord placed right, it looks lovely, like something in a japanese woodblock. I have thought of painting the cord to match the wall, but that's really not a good option. BTW, it's in the same room as the "Milton" bed from Overstock - and it matches the bed color and style perfectly! I've got a seriously zen bedroom now, all thanks to Overstock...so I do recommend this light, it is good quality, but make sure you have 2 ceiling hooks, a light bulb, and possibly some modified plastic rings on hand when you put it up.Read More
