I thought these floor lamps looked modern and interesting in the picture but they are not what I expected. They have fabric that covers the lamp, not some sort of plastic laminate or glass which is what I thought. They look sort of like space ships- I'm not going to return but I wish I had gotten something more traditional.
With its organic elements and air of modern sophistication, this lamp creates striking ambiance with its soft light and tall stature. It was a bit difficult to assemble, as you must stretch the bamboo pole open to insert the crossbars and pin the fabric underneath, which requires strength and dexterity - and sadly if you are not swift and careful there will be varnish transfer on the bright white fabric --- but the fabric is very easily detachable and MACHINE WASHABLE. This is a gorgeous lamp with sinuous lines that lend well to traditional, transitional, and modern decor. Whether your style is Pan-Asian, Native American/ Southwestern, Modern Contemporary or Minimalist Chic- This towering element is sculptural and adds warmth and interest to a dark corner and commands attention with its soft, seductive glow. The enclosed paperwork states is accommodates any wattage of bulb, but it works best with two 40 watt bulbs - as a brighter light will cause the bulb to be visible through the fabric lining and spoil the effect of the diffused radiance. Of all my many Overstock purchases - this is by far the best.
As long as you read the reviews, you will know exactly what to expect. Yes, it arrived a little dirty, the cloth is stark white, and if you are not mechanically inclined, get someone to help you assemble it. This lamp was exactly what I expected and I am very pleased with it. I put it together myself in about 20 minutes and it adds that special touch to our living room as only a handmade item can. If you like the unordinary, this light is for you!
When this lamp first arrived, I was so excited. It was perfect for my room. However, within months, the woods beams began splitting in half. The cracks are slowing growing longer and longer. I won't be surprised if it slips completely in half and crumbles on my floor. Pretty disappointing.
After reading several negative reviews, I hesitated to purchase this lamp. I really loved its appearance though, so I took a chance. I did not find it difficult to assemble; in fact I thought it was fun. It looks great, works fine and ended up in my bedroom. The only negative comment I have is that the wood is a lot darker on mine than in the photos, but it's understandable there would be variation in a handmade product. Overall, I am greatly pleased!
this lamp is simple and very unique in design. i love the look and plan on buying more. it is like something in a swanky sushi bar. it arrived clean and with one small stain on the fabric, but all in all presentable. the price is a lil high for the materials used, but the statement the lamp has makes up for it. the are making a fortune from this!!!
As soon as I can get the dumb thing back in it's package, I'll be returning it! As others have said, the whole product is dirty and while the shades were easy to wash they quickly became dirty again when I re-installed them. When I finally did get the lamp put together, it didn't work. A lamp should not be this difficult!
