Although the color of the lamp is a darker blue and yellow than the picuture, it's very pretty. The blue glass has a mottled texture, which gives it more depth. I did find that it had a film on the outside of the lamp, that I removed using alcohol & q-tips. This made the overall appearance of the lamp much more beautiful than when I first saw it. Time consuming, but worth it. It is darker of course, when the light is off, but it does provide a good amount of light when turned on; not enough for a reading light, but good for mood lighting. Also, I use a CF bulb with no problems.
I bought this floor lamp for extra light in my livingroom, soft light. It is beautiful, the blue looks a little lighter than cobalt blue when lit, the amber and the white stars really stand out. The light is even beautiful when not lit, everyone who has seen it is bowled over when I tell them how much it was as it looks so expensive.

This lamp is just beautiful! I purchased it for a little bit of light in a dark corner of my living room and it is exactly what I wanted. The workmanship is wonderful.....very heavy and sturdy. The colors are brilliant. Highly recommended!
This lamp is beautiful. And, contrary to some of the reviews I read, I found the glass to be quite authentic and not plastic-looking (it is indeed real glass, just covered in a protective coating). I've gotten TONS of compliments on it from guests. I like the red color this lamp can come in, too (we got that in the table lamp version), but in some ways I think this blue one is even nicer in that it remains about the same beautiful blue color whether the lamp is turned on or off (the glass looks a bit darker when off). The red one only looks red when it is turned on; when it's turned off, it's a pretty but very different purple-greenish iridescent-looking color. Actually the thing I liked least about this lamp was the base. It's not terrible-looking, but it doesn't look anything like authentic brass would, so it cheapens the look slightly. And LOVE the floor switch, though we have it situated in a great spot for that -- make sure you won't be placing the lamp in any hard to reach areas (like in a corner behind a couch or something).
beautiful- unique lamp- i may get another- the design makes the shade look like night lights to themselves- very pleased- the blue is also beautiful- gift for my son and he loves it , and he is hard to please.

I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago and loved it so much I bought another to match. The color is, for the most part, a beautiful cobalt blue. The accents are creamy-white flowers and amber "jewels". The lamp is tall enough to be a true floor lamp and not a reading lamp. I can't say enough good things, love the lamp...definitely buy it if you're looking for a cobalt blue accent in your room. Everybody who looks at it comments on how much they like it.
I was so pleased when I received this lamp. It's picture doesn't do it justice. Wonderful colors, easy to assemble. I especially like the foot switch so I can tuck it around my potted plants and don't have to fumble for the switch. Great buy, have had lots of comments.
Good construction, good height. Use a bright white colored bulb, not a yellow or warm bulb for this lamp to emit it's blues, and yellows best. Does not emit as much light as I wanted to, unfortunately. It does have a neat little push button on the cord that you can step on to lazily turn off the light, woohoo!
