The lamp was very easy to assemble (took me about 8 minutes without even looking for instructions) and the metal parts are solidly constructed. The stand feels very solid, and the base is weighted appropriately. The plastic parts around the assembly that hold the bulb feels cheaper, and part of it was chipped in shipping. It wasn't anything major, and is never seen because the shade covers it up anyway. But, I can see where that area of the lamp could be easily damaged in a way that would make it unusable. I would recommend this lamp for accent/supplementary lighting purposes.

The shade is plastic with metal grommets that secure the wood in place. the light bulb heats up the metal holder, melts the plastic and the wood falls. I like the look but will have a friend rebuild them to secure the wood so it will not fall. So Sad. Too much money to spend to have to reconstruct it.

I was disappointed that this takes a 40 watt bulb max. The shade is a bit cheap looking and the quality of the item is not what I expected. You won't be reading by this lamp and there is nothing about this lamp to make you think it is hand made. I do like the metal band at the top of the lamp, however. It is over priced.

Expected a matte finish dull coated rustic lamp; instead discovered it was a very thin metal with a very shiny paint making it look somewhat rustic in color but not in appearance. Photo differs greatly from product. Returned the lamp.

First of all, the lamps are gorgeous. The shade totally makes the lamp because of it's triangular shape. This is not a reading lamp, more of a mood setting lamp. Comes with a bulb. My main complaint is the switch placement. Your hands get scratched from the metal trimming when trying to turn on and off. I just unplug it from the wall. Trimmed in metal that looks like wrought iron, with the same trim on all sides. Even though they are advertised as floor lamps , they are quite short. I placed one on a side table and the other on my dresser. All in all I'm happy I bought them. Very different and original.

I am deeply ambivalent about this purchase - I love what this should have been - a funky Morroccan light with old-world handmade style. In spite of the sweet story about its maker, it seems factory made with VERY thin metal that has been glued over the cheap glass in decorative places (instead of the metal being what holds the glass in place). I have a number of inexpensive morroccan lamps hanging on my porch - all are a a fair bit smaller than this and made much better but I didn't pay nearly as much for them as I did this. I bought two - one arrived without a scratch and the other the top was all dented in. The box was fine - it is the packing that was the problem -glass was protected but metal was not - needed some cardboard or stiff material around top and bottom before shipping. It is now out of stock so I can't exchange it. Because the metal is so soft and pliable I can probably bend it back into shape & hang it high enough so it does not show, but Overstock has done better. (I'd keep checking for stock - it has been out of stock before and then they get just a couple more and are gone in a flash.)

Lamp is cheaply made. Arrived with missing paint on the black portion ,dings and paint drips.Orange portion doesn't look like leather at all but rather a piece of poorly hand painted metal. The bulb is exposed ,as is the entire back of the lamp. and the lamp is loose and wobbly in it's base. I returned it !!..Very disappointed...Very poorly finished product. Save your money!!!

First, no where in the description does it say the frame of the lamp is made out of bamboo. My husband and I thought it was metal, with wood product as its fabric source.Second, the frame was cracked when we opened the box; not a great testament to the durability of the lamp.Third, the bamboo on the frame was not finely sanded down, giving a rather "hairy" appearance.Would NOT recommend this to anyone.

I ordered this lamp after reading the many positive reviews. I received the lamp quickly, just in a few days, but when I opened the box I was overcome with the smell of varnish. Although the description says the lamp is made from leather and metal, the entire lamp seemed to be constructed of metal, even the shade. It is painted black and the orange color is as it appears in the photo, but the smell of paint/varnish was very strong. It also does not come with a full shade, meaning the back is not enclosed with the shade. The bare bulb and fixture are visible, so it would be best to place the lamp where the back is to a wall or something blocking it. It is also king of tall. I thought it would be a bit smaller, but it works where I placed it on top of an etagere. Makes a nice accent piece.

Lantern arrived banging around loose in a cardboard box. No packing. Top was broken off, and the lantern smelled of the gloss brown enamel paint it was sprayed with. Metal work is passable, nothing fancy. Overall, I do not feel that the lantern is worth the money. Perhaps with a matt finish and a bit more detail it would be a good piece. The shape is classic. I was disapointed in the quality.

First off, it looks great. The first problem was the bulb fixture had come undone-easy to fix with a pair of pliers. The main problem is that the bulb was touching the leather-definite fire potential. That can be fixed by bending the metal bar that supports the bulb. I would suggest putting in a fluorescent bulb.

The azure bowl on this lamp is beautiful, however there was a loose part on it when it arrived. The metal part that holds the light bulb had come loose and try as I might, I could not reseat it . Even though it was well packed I believe it may have happened somewhere in transit either to the seller or to me. I was very disappointed. The lamp was exactly what I was looking for, but when I tried to have another sent, it was out of stock. I returned it and Overstock made the return process extremely easy. Thank you Overstock.

This lamp adds a needed touch of warmth to my front room. It also a unique piece. Once out of the box it seemed to have perhaps bent slightly in shipping. All iit needed was a small amount of readjusting/bending of the metal stand. I did this with my hands and it seems fine. I don't think it will present future problems. I waited a long time to push the button on this one, but I'm really glad I did!

The description states that the lamp has a solid wood base and it doesn't. The base is a metal base with what appears to be a formica looking sticker wrapped around the bottom. I ordered this because I felt a real wood base along with the tabacco shade would give me the natural look that I was seeking. Also, it has a very contemporary look and feel to it which wouldn't be an issue for me if it had the real wood base to even out the look. Very disappointed in Overstock AGAIN.

It is not flimsy but by no means is it solid either. If someone as small as a 5 yr old were to fall back on it then it would warp or bend. Great color, bogger than I thought but worked out to be a great peice alon g a wall. It gives of a really cool vibe when candles are in it. Wish the metal would have been a little thicker and the door actually had a true locking hasp on it but I have kids... either way it is a great buy and a great decor item for any house.

This lantern is very nice but the description is wrong about it. There is no emerald glass, in fact there is no glass at all! When I was ordering it I was confused about the emerald glass because in the picture it does not look like green light coming through. I ordered it anyway because the green glass was not issue either way it would work for me but if you are ordering it because it has emerald colored glass, don't do it! It looks just like the picture. It is a light bulb shining through a bronze metal type cylinder with cut out designs so the light shines through. I like it! but just know there is NO emerald glass and no glass at all! :)

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.

Stunning to look at, but very time consuming to assemble and not very study. Each "tentacle" had to be individually screwed into a cross bar inside the shade. Some of the tiny screws and nuts and rusty to that it requires soap, or some non-staining lubricant to unscrew the end of the tentacle, in order to rescrew is back into the cross bar. The idea is simple, but the execution took hours and was painstaking, and fortunately my hands are relatively small. I don't know how a man or woman with large hands would be able to fit their hand inside the shade and do some of the maneuvers required to screw certain tentacles in. Also, the lamp stand itself is hollow and very light. the top or the stand fits midway into the shaft and the bottom. It does not screw in, but merely fits in. This makes it unsteady and the top will come off immediately if it is not picked up low enough down, or with two hands. If the two parts were screwed together, it would make it much more stable. Since, the metal is hollow it is therefore very light weight which adds to the instability. When assembled, however, it looks gorgeous and I have received many compliments.

Let me count the ways I'm not in love with this lamp. The only accurate thing about the listing is the color. First, this lamp is shabbily made. It's not square, not straight, not plumb, not true. The so-called leather (I doubt it's leather; the shade material is paper-thin, stretched tight as a drum over the frame) is colored with a very fragile layer of the reddish henna dye (if that's what it is at all). Mine was nicked in two place before I got it out of the wrapping. The base of the lamp, which is not shown int he photo at all, is a 12" square, about 2" high, made of some kind of metal. It's not smooth. It's dark brown. It's ugly. But you have to have it, because that's where the socket is for your bulb. As on many lamps, the switch is on the base of the socket. So you place the shade portion atop the base. Then, of course, you have to turn it on. To do this, you have to reach down through the top opening of the lamp--past the bulb--which is kind of awkward. I'm using a CFL bulb, but with a regular bulb, even the low wattage recommended for this lamp, to turn the lamp off, you would have to slide your hand carefully between the shade and the bulb to avoid burning yourself. The design is different from what is pictured. Instead of three small designs, there's one large sort of flower shape with some leaves, swirls and dots and dots in a kind of cute pattern--done, from all I can tell, in dimensional paint. All in all, this is a cheap piece of poorly made junk not worth a third of what I paid for it.
Overhead lighting may fill the room with light, but it's the low table lamps that offer the most flattering lighting. The style of lamps you choose will also change the feel of the whole room. If you're redecorating, be sure to consider what different lamps can do for the mood.
Choosing the correct lighting for a room is a vital factor in designing your home decor. Numerous elements make up a room's lighting design. The types of light fixtures and whether you use soft white or bright fluorescent bulbs influence the ambiance of the room. If you incorporate lamps into your room's lighting design, it is important to select the proper lamp shade as well.
Hosting a successful party requires the right balance of ambiance and entertainment. After you've finalized the menu and stocked up on decorations, focus on the lighting effect you want for your soiree. There are several options when it comes to special lighting. Portable lamps can be moved around for parties, and more permanent lighting options are always ready for impromptu gatherings. From moody lanterns to bright sconces, light fixtures complete the party atmosphere and make big get-togethers more intimate.
Adding a recessed light above the shower provides welcome illumination while showering. Recessed bathroom lighting is perfect for the ceiling above the shower because it does not take up any space over head. A special moisture-resistant bathroom light fixture is required in the shower because the area is subject to so much moisture and humidity. You may replace an existing light fixture or install a new fixture after an electrician runs the necessary wiring. Choose a simple recessed light or select a light-and-heat-lamp combination or a light-and-fan combination.
Even the most confident of decorators can feel stumped when it comes to a lighting design for the home. After all, major decisions concerning lighting can have a dramatic effect on how your interior spaces look and feel. The diversity of styles, fixtures, sizes, finishes, and even bulbs can intimidate rather than inspire a decorator. Begin the process by looking at the rooms of friends and family that you admire and check out the lighting they use.

Refreshing the paint, switching out textiles or using different furniture hardware can quickly transform a plain bedroom into a room that reflects your unique style.

To create a balanced atmosphere in your bedroom, finding the right nightstand is essential. A nightstand is an end table for the bedroom. In almost every case, it stands beside your bed as a useful space for storing and displaying the things any good end table might: a table lamp, an alarm clock, a book or magazine, a pair of glasses, a small plant, a drinking glass, a framed picture. All night stands are built with your basic bedside requirements in mind, but there are important distinctions in nightstand utility and style. Luckily, this nightstand buying guide gives you all the information you need to determine how to buy a nightstand that brings you closer to the bedroom of your dreams.
