  • Great inexpensive lighting with style

    This Maru ball light is perfect for the Japanese-style decor in my son's room. Adds a good amount of light where no ceiling light exists. While it's made of paper, it's fairly sturdy and puts off a good amount of light. Everything works fine, the switch is well-placed (well down on the cord) keeping in mind that the ball is intended to be hung at ceiling height. Very good design, style and value for the money!

  • Chinese "Latern" Light...

    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!

  • Mixed feelings, but good overall.

    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!

  • Accent lantern

    My lantern arrived in great condition. Just wanted to let everyone know it arrived with no torn paper, which I was relieved to see, because I had read very nice sounding reviews, yet lanterns had torn paper.

  • I like it

    I adore it. I'm thinking of ways to adorn it to manipulate the colors and shadows. I wish I put a 60 watt instead of 75 cause it's a bit bright but it fits perfectly in my room!

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No it actually ivory/white thin paper but different lighting or lights can change the hue
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good although delicate. There were a few tears but nothing discouraging.
    • How accurate was the sizing? I think it much larger in person but the perfect size still

  • attractive lantern

    I found the lantern to be very attractive, easy to set-up and exactly matches its description. It's made of paper, so you have to be gentle with it. However, it took a bare bulb and made and attractive light fixture! It's also very bright which is nice.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
    • How accurate was the sizing? accurate

  • Decent value; easy kit

    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.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes

    • Did the product fit true to size? N/A

  • Nice Lamp

    I got the big one and it's really big, but it looks great above the reading nook in my daughter's room. Did have a few tears in the rice paper, but not really noticeable once it's hung. Fairly easy to hang once I figured how far down the light needed to be in the lamp. Overall I'm very happy with the lamp.

What's the color - the Overstock photo makes it look pink but the specs say white. One reviewer said it casts a warm glow. Monique on Feb 18, 2015

Hello Monique, this appears to be more of a beige color in my opinion. We try to represent the colors of our products accurately. Unfortunately, due to the difference in monitor colors we cannot guarantee that the color will match exactly what you see on your screen.
