I needed two bedside lamps and was trolling through Overstock. These lamps stood out because of the unique shape, which is usually seen in lamps costing much more, and the color went with the color scheme in my beach house. The price was also a factor. They arrived well packed and in perfect condition. The color is exactly like the picture, kind of a muted teal, and because the lamp base is glass it has a richness to it. The shades are okay, neutral white color and no complaints at that price. Overall we are very happy with to purchase.
