I loved the clean lines of this lamp when I first spotted it and felt it was very versatile in terms of where it could be used as well as easily blend with virtually any type of decor. I wanted to buy two, but started with one, just to be sure it looked as good in reality as it did in the phtograph. And sure enough, it did! For the money (**something dollars), this lamp looks like a MUCH better lamp. In fact, I saw an identical-looking one on **** site for more than FOUR TIMES the amount this one cost on Overstock. ($395!) It was at that moment that I immediately ordered the second one. I like the design in that it has two pull chains, since sometimes you don't want that much light. Also, the marble has beautiful veining and is solid as a rock. This lamp is not going to tip over. The shade is also a lovely silk that gives off a nice glow. (I used 30watt amber antique bulbs in the lamps that have quite a warm effect.) I placed one in the living room and one in the guest bedroom on the night table. The latter replaced a relatively cheap tensor lamp and in so doing gave the whole room an entirely different feel -- a much more "polished" look. Everyone LOVES them. One of the best items I've bought on Overstock. Absolutely pleased with them. If I had a house more rooms, I'd buy the other shapes and colors as well!
