When I unpacked the lamp, I was quite disappointed, because the shade looked grey and dull. (The shade is made up of over 800 pieces of glass and the soldering is very prominent.) Assembly was very easy. Then I plugged it in and ---WOW --- the lamp looked beautiful.
I placed the lamp close to a window, this way the shade is not quite as dull looking, but when I have visitors the lights come on even during the day. I like the narrow and uneven shape of the shade, it really gives the appearance of a tree.
I looked at all the tiffany style lamps on this site before ordering this one for my desk. As described in other reviews, it has an irregular shaped shade. The design on this lamp, from the base to the top, is really unique - it truly looks like a tree. The shade drapes beautifully. My lamp is on a desk, beside a window. When the lamp is off, the shade is rather dull (even with sunlight pouring in); however, once you turn the light on, it's magnificent! The leading on the shade is thick but that is to be expected at this price - I can't afford a real Tiffany but love that I get the look at this price! As to assembly, all I had to do was put the shade on and screw it down - very easy. This lamp is extremely sturdy and very heavy, no wobbling on the base. Packaging was quite sufficient and we had no problems with breakage or defects. I would recommend this lamp. If you love the tiffany look and want something different, this is the lamp for you!
I love tiffany style lamps and this is no exception - the lamp is beautiful. The base however I found, for the price, really disappointing(maybe I expect too much?). The style is nice (it's why I chose this particular lamp) but the color is awful which I don't think is apparent on the picture. I expected something multi-shaded trying to emulate wood but this has been painted, possibly by a child in one flat color that I must say is remeniscent of "Mr Hanky" (a South Park reference-ask a friend)
I am keeping the lamp however as the packaging fell apart when I took it out of the box, I was unable to securely re-ship it. I am going to look at learning some paint techniques to give the base a better finish. But other reviews are correct - when you light the lamp it is so gorgeous it diverts the eye from any flaws.
My husband and I love the lamp. It is so beautiful and
goes well beyond our expectations. We liked it a lot
when we viewed it online, but, the pictures online does
not do it justice, by any means. Every person that has

This lamp was $109 cheaper than a local store where I live. The colors are very vibrant. I found that if you use the new florescent bulbs the colors really stand out. Great Value and as it was a gift, the recipient was really excited with the unique stand and shape of the shade.
The light is just lovely in our living room. The colors on the shade are true to how they look on the website - actually clearer and brighter even. The only reason I didn't say excellent is because I'm not 100% sure about loving the base - longer than I expected and does not seem as classy as the shade. Still - we really like it and have gotten 2! Good value for money.
Attention to detail and fine craftsmanship was evident, from the moment I opened the box. It's a very beautiful lamp and adds class to my living room. I recommend using low wattage light bulbs; 40 or under. I did an extensive search for price differences with eBay, Amazon and Overstock. Obviously Overstock had the best price. It only took 5 days to arrive at my home from the date of order. I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this lamp to my friends and family. Their posted picture is a real representation of what I received. You can't beat this advertised price...
Just received my 2 lamps for my bedroom; they are absolutely gorgeous and heavy too. Very substantial in weight and make quite the presence in my room.
I am totally happy with these lamps. The shades are so pretty with lavenders, tans, green, and turquoise among the colors.
I am going to buy LED bulbs to put in there as they don't get hot and will have more brightness to show off these beautiful shades.
The base, which looks like a tree trunk, is very appropriate since I have a lodge style home the ruggedness of the base just is perfect for me.
So very, very happy with these lamps and the price was good also.
This lamp looks exactly like the picture and what I wanted. It throws plenty of light, using one or two 60 watt bulbs. Separate pulls cords for each light. The only negative thing I have to say, it's made in China and it has a light smell from the treatment they use to prevent rust. A little oily too.
