This floor lamp by itself, is rather plain. However, if you're creative with your decor, as far as what you decide to place on the shelves, then this makes for a very nice decorative lamp. Honestly speaking, it would serve you better if the items you place on the shelves are "attention getters" (i.e. pictures in exotic frames or bold colored accessories) the floor lamp seems to become an insignificant piece, which for some of you...may defeat the purpose of the purchase. I purchased this lamp in grey (which is a very light grey), and placed beautiful 4x6 framed pictures of my children, and I'll admit those photos coupled with the teal cream and dark grey decor of my living room , absolutely causes this lamp to all but disappear. In fact, in a few months, I'll probably replace it with something more suited for the "competition in my living room". This floor lamp could easily go into any bedroom in the house. But for the awesome price....I SAY BUY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!
I wanted a traditional floor lamp for my daughter's room, and was very pleased with this purchase. It emits a nice amount of light, is not too large so it doesn't overwhelm the space, and has a very solid feel to it. There was one glitch with my order, which was that the lamp shade had some discolorations on it that I was afraid to try to clean, but Overstock had a replacement shade shipped out immediately, so I barely had time to feel bad about it!
