This pendant does not look exactly like the picture, to me. I expected the fixture to be a bit more rustic and less 'perfect'. With that said, I think it looks interesting in the laundry room and the green color with brown accents goes well with my colors.

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.

We love our pendants - the only thing we didn't realize is that there is only a "cord" hanging down, not a pole, so the cord doesn't hang as straight as a pole. But, gravity does work and it is getting straighter each day.

This lamp is very unique and I have received many compliments on it. It has a lovely romantic warm glow; but please don't expect it to truly light a room. Also - I had assumed I could just use a regular 70 watt light bulb and that is not the case at all! I had to go out and purchase a small 60 watt chandelier light bulb. There is no mention of this anywhere on Overstock or in the packaging and I think people should know. I was frustrated that I received the product and surprise! the light bulb thing was tiny and I had to figure out what I was supposed to use to make it work. Despite my annoyance over the light bulb situation, the lamp is truly very pretty and I do love it.

We had been looking for just the right lighting for our cedar four season room and with two little ones, floor lamps weren't going to work. For simplicity's sake we started to look for swag lamps - and boy, there were a LOT of options...that would NOT fit into our rustic space. It almost seems like these were made specifically for this room. The dark bamboo color and simple style are perfect.

I love the look of this chandelier! I ordered my Chandelier so I could use it outdoors. I have a bright light inside it so the shapes appear on the wall. We made a custom cover for the top so the rain doesn't pour through the light fixture.The down side to this chandelier is the light bulb fixture on the inside.This Chandelier is a "shell" of the picture you see and is metal with colored plastic beads inserted in the design. It comes with a chain and hook to hang it up, BUT, the light bulb fixture on the inside is just a light bulb extension cord that comes in a separate bag. This makes it weird for the assembly.You have to configure it yourself.I thought this light would come ready to hang.I love different and unique things so it suits me well and my husband is very creative and handy and made it work.

I bought this item to use on the patio and it works very well as the sides are solid glass the wind is not a factor. It stays lit , dose not blow out.

Product was as described. Basic lantern, simple, but stylish. I was looking for a hanging lamp for a small room and this was perfect.

I originally bought this product just to have added light over a small desk in my bedroom. However, I never expected what a beautiful accent piece it would make. The overall light from this gorgeous lamp covers the entire room in a soft glow. It could make any room in a house or apartment look rich and inviting. This is definitely a thumbs-up product.

This is such an inexpensive way to brighten up one's home with light fixtures that look attractive and unusual. I had just a bit of problem figuring out the poor instructions; but, it was really easy enough. ha! Wish they had more variety of colors in stock. You can dress it up with red ribbon (good fortune) or inexpensive eastern trinkets. It gives off a nice warm glow of light, takes a 25 watt bulb. I have really enjoyed it, and plan on purchasing more for a even better far east effect!

Love it! It fits the look I wanted to create - adding new to the old, but good bones.

These are beautiful, but HUGE (2 feet across). Light is very good from them. If you have a small house, rethink buying these!

I plan events for a living and buy when I see excellent products that are discounted. These are beautiful and perfect for wedding lighting.

I was looking for a paper lamp that would hang from my ceiling without requiring an electrical hookup from the ceiling. I had planned to purchase a paper lantern similar to the one picture here and the light bulb hanging lantern kit separately. Further investigation revealed I would be spending more for shipping on these relatively inexpensive products than the items themselves. Enter Overstock: they carried this product at a decent price with a very easy to use, functional kit. I had it up and shining in no time flat.

Aside from one of the horizontal pieces being bent, it's a nice lamp for a VERY casual setting. I would not say it's very durable as it is made by hand from rice paper and bamboo, but it works well for my use and adds a bit of an artsy touch. I purchased it for my screened porch and it is perfect out there with my rattan and wicker furnishings. Very south Pacific!

You need to purchase everything to wire it and then hang it from a previously existing ceiling figure. That got expensive! Now that it is up, I like it very much. It is in my entry way near the front door.

I used a 19" for my dining room and a 24" for my hallway instead of using traditional lighting. What a difference! I had my dad "retro-fit" them so they can be turned on by a wall switch. That was pleasantly easy to do. One of them had a hole the size of a quarter in it, but not that noticable once it was up (hence 2 stars on workmanship). Just make sure you order the next size down as these things are H-U-G-E once you put them up!

I liked having a choice in the size. It looks great and is easy to hang because it is very lightweight. I can use it over my dining table or transfer it to my screened porch in the summer.

I get tons of compliments on this light. I also have 2 in turquoise, which have a lovely gradient of color
