The Story Behind the Product
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 text above says "Add a touch of China to your home decor with this Nara lamp ". To my eyes the style is Japanese rather than Chinese; just because it was made in China does not make it Chinese.
The lamp gives off a very pleasant, diffuse light. With a 40 watt bulb it will light the living room without being distracting, eg whilst watching TV. The woodwork is not of a high order, but the imperfections are invisible at a distance of 1 foot or more ("walnut" finish). Excellent value, I would say. I would buy another if I had somewhere to put it!
These lamps on small tables by each side of the bed invite the weary traveler to come down to a timeless place off the busy freeway of life. Their subdued glow actually lights up a surprisingly large area, while allowing someone to read enough to know what tomorrow brings. I haven't had anyone to stay who reads more than a few things on a tablet in bed, so can't vouch for the book-a-night type. The shape is classic and complements my rather simple guest bedroom which has shoji screen doors to the closet and a minimum of superfluous decoration. They're well-crafted and put together - there are no bits that suggest the lamps were assembled under duress. The wiring looks good and solid. In the past I've had lamps (not from Overstock) that weren't made in the US that clearly weren't UL listed and had to be re-wired, but these are fine. As far as cleaning goes, it's early days, but I imagine a fine paintbrush every so often should get any dust or lint out from the bamboo. Anything else will just add charm and patina over time. What persuaded me to get these rather than other "oriental" lamps on the market was the handle on the top (for looks) and the height of the shade, which allows for a different light-disperion pattern than shorter lamps.
Unusual, am sure will find a number of uses. Like the idea of diffuse light on Feb 26, 2015

Hello demrock666, we appreciate your inquiry. The walnut color refers to the frame. Unfortunately, a picture of the natural color option is not available at this time, however, it is in stock. We hope you have found this information helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have great day!
