Received the lamps about 2 weeks after ordering. Both arrived in excellent condition, well packaged. They are beautiful, exactly as pictured and perfect for my family room. I needed taller lamps for the end tables to improve on the lighting for reading and these serve that purpose well. I had been to multiple stores and online sites and couldn't find anything I liked. They also accomodate 3-way bulbs, which is nice. I had read on a review before ordering that the shades have a gold sheen to them, which is true. However, I think it adds to the overall look and am very pleased all around. Thanks Overstock!
