I'm the artsy type and don't like boring furnishings or fashions. These over the top lamps are just wonderful for people like me! I love color and unique things. These lamps do not disappoint but are definitely not for the faint of heart. If you like beige, cream and earthtone boring decor, these lamps are SO not for you! These go great with my eclectic taste! My husband isn't too thrilled with them but he's used to my wild taste and will just have to get over it! LOVE THEM!!!!!! I got both colors!!!!!!
