by CoffeeDiva62 Expensive looking Lamp
I have coveted this lamp for a few years now as my sister has the same one on her foyer desk. I describe it as "Old Fashion Contemporary". Matches my Fall color scheme I have in my living room perfectly. The domed lamp shade is slightly cream colored and has 2 sockets for bulbs with 2 key chain pulls to adjust amount of lighting you want. Easy to put together and sturdy. I buy most of my lamps from JCPenneys and expect this lamp will last forever.

greart price on lamps that fit into my decor and even have shades that match my ceiling fan - i love the simple lines and although the metal color was a little dark to me at the beginning, i find that they fit just fine!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JCPshopper4456 Lamp shade is different color than the picture shows.....
The picture shows an ivory/cream solid colored lamp shade. I purchased two to place in my bedroom thinking they would match my brown and cream colored decor. The shade is actually a yellow/beige color with ivory/cream swirls. Well, the lighting is really bright! Even with a soft bulb. The lamps are tall so when you are in bed you can see the bulbs which are very bright in your face. Not good if you are looking for soft lighting in the bedroom. I have a four month old that still sleeps with me and the rim around the lamp shade rattles loudly everytime I turn on the lamp. The pulls that hang down swing and cling loudly against the metal base. The pulls to turn the lamp on and off work smoothly. When I received the lamp one of the bases were crooked and the other lamp had lots of scratches. I would never pay full price for the lamp but I did receive half off. I will be returning these lamps. Probably better for an office or living room. Oh, and if you purchase these lamps prepare for a mess as the little white foam pieces from the packaging get EVERYWHERE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChiTownGal This lamp is the "light of my life."
The lamp's classic design is contemporary in its simplicity yet reminiscent of a more romantic, bygone era. As a desk lamp in my home office, it is stunning against the deep cherry finish of the built-in mahogany desk, while its height and the versatility afforded by the two independent bulbs make it ideal for illuminating the work area of whatever task is at hand.
Also deserving of mention is the frosted, swirled glass shade, which provides the perfect finishing touch to this timeless beauty. And because of its heavy steel base, the lamp is sturdier than most of similar price available today, commonly having resin bases. Compared to others I've seen in the same price range, this lamp is deceptively inexpensive, a superb value. All in all, I could not be more satisfied with my purchase!
Suggestion: Some reviewers have complained that the shade is too shallow, causing the bulbs to be visible below it. A simple solution is to use two clear ceiling-fan bulbs (A15), which are smaller than conventional incandescent bulbs and better-suited, in my opinion, to decorative and/or antique-look lighting situations (sorry, I conserve energy wherever I possibly can but really dislike the harshness of CFL and LED lighting in a "vintage" lamp so allow myself a rare exception in this case). The ceiling-fan bulbs give softer light and are available in both 60w and 40w; I find the latter -- used singly or together, depending on the task -- quite adequate for my home office needs.

This lamp is nice and tall. It illuminates my entire desk. The metal rim on the glass shade is easily removable if you prefer it without. I can see they put it there to protect the glass edges. When I sit at the desk I do see the light bulbs which might bother some people. I like it because it is high enough that it towers over my large computer screen. I also happy that is able to accommodate traditional bulbs instead of required cfls. I'm buying another lamp now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by plant5 I wanted to like it
This lamp looked as beautiful on my table as it did in the picture. Heavy, sturdy base, well packaged, shipped well.
Only problem is the glass shade is too shallow to cover the bulbs.
It is fine if you are standing above the lamp, but in my case, it sits on a table between two chairs. When I look in the direction of the lamp, I'm blinded by the light, and ugly sockets. I really wanted to keep it, so I tried 40 watt bulbs, but unfortunately, it has to go back.

We are very happy with this purchase, this is the second lamp of the same lamp that we have purchased from JCPenny and we were very pleased with the first one..The first lamp got pushed over and the glass broke is it possible to buy the replacement glass only?

Originally purchased one for my living room, but decided it looked better in the bedroom on the nightstand. I debated if I should get another one, but after it came and I saw how beautiful and stylish it looked, the warm glow and very reasonable price I couldn't resist. My husband loved it, it wasn't too feminine giving the okay for a matching pair. The price helped too.
However, it's not solid heavy contruction as with some lamps, but made from steel with a nice bronze finish. It was a little taller than I expected, so being placed in the right location will make a difference. Love the pull chains so you can decide on one or two lights for brightness or glow.
