These lamps are wonderful and perfect for my Napoleonic draped bedroom! However, beware-the description says you can use a 60 watt up to a 100 watt light bulbs, but the lamps themselves say not to use any size over 40 watt. I'm a bit disappointed because I bought lamps for my bedside tables, and I like to read in bed. The required max 40 watt bulbs do not give out enough light for that. I would not consider returning them because they have exactly the look I was wanting. I LOVE Overstock, and I have never been let down by the many things I have ordered.
