Very nice lamp. Polished silver finish. The shade is a bright white silk-like fabric but it looks beige when the light is on (with incandescent bulbs). I wish the floor lamp had a pull chain like the matching table lamp does.
I don't like the harsh light from the 3-way and couldn't find an incandescent that still wasn't too bright for the room (even with my 10 ft. ceiling), but used a 60w yellow "bug light" and it is the PERFECT ambient light for a room where you want light, but not blinding light. It was very easy to assemble, arrived in great shape with no damage, and is not obtrusive but totally functional. I would buy this again or recommend it to anyone.
Lamp looks nice and works great. Really brightens up a dark room! Easy to put together. The two sockets allow for versatility in lighting; I am currently using one incandescent and one compact fluorescent. The big shade spread the light evenly with no hot spots. Liked it so much we now have two for two different rooms.
Great floor lamp for kids room of family room. One of the main reasons we got this lamp was that my daughter wanted more light in her room. This floor lamp has six (6) candelabra sockets rated by Overstock at 30 Watts each. However, please note that the fixture has a sticker on the socket that clearly states "25 Watts Maximum". No matter - I substituted six Feit E12 base LED bulbs, at 7 Watts each (60 Watt equivalent). Very nice look! Same light (500 Lumens each, 3000K color temperature which is between warm and bright white) as 60 Watt incandescent bulbs, but very energy efficient and do not overheat. Got them for $*** each on internet. The end result is that we have the equivalent of what would be a total of 360 Watts of incandescent lamps (6 x 500 = 3000 Lumens) with only 42 Watts of total electrical load. The bulbs are warm to the touch, but not hot enough to burn (around 150 degrees F temperature) - still plenty cool for the socket and wiring, which are rated for the much higher 25 Watt incandescent lamp current and temperature, so a safe installation overall and the room is EXTREMELY well lit. The lamp is brushed nickel. High quality construction and goes together very easily. Half-hour overall time to assemble. Switch has nice solid feel - not at all cheesy. The shades are colored glass - not the plastic of the cheaper brand sold in the many do-it-yourself warehouse stores and discount department store chains. One suggestion - it would be nice if they offered this fixture in all white shades for more modern appearance in other living spaces (some folks may not want so much color) and even better if the shades were available individually for folks who want to change or customize the color scheme. As one reviewed also noted - packaging was messy and rather flimsy - watch which side you open first - one side is the base and the other side is the lamp and glass shades. The base, being heavy can fall out and break or hurt you, if you are not careful, and on the flip side or the box the glass shades can fall out and break. Suggest you work on a soft carpet to unpack. Overall - very satisfied and highly recommended.
