Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary2315 Pretty lamp but read reviews on bulb size
This is a very pretty lamp with an antique feel that will go with a lot of different decors. I have it sitting as an accent on a slate sofa table and it works very nicely. Note that the jadestone gives a different hue than glass does. It has a soft, muted effect and makes a warm glow in the corner of the room. I agree with other reviewers, this lamp is too small and too dim to read by but it's a very effective accent piece. The distance between the screw fixture for the bulb and the top of the harp under the shade is very short and so a candelabra style bulb just won't fit. I found a 2 inch diameter globe bulb with a candelabra screw fitting that fits nicely but you have to remove the lampshade to put it in. If you are willing to put up with removing the shade when the bulb needs changing I think you will be pleased with the soft light effect of this unique lamp. Also, I used a 60 w bulb (as stated on the bulb fixture) but its probably better off with a 40 w, since the top of the lamp gets extremely hot. If you have children that might not be good.

I agree with the previous reviewer- this lamp is understated and simply and tastefully beautiful. It is not a reading lamp and I was not looking for one. It is an accent lamp where you need some light in a special corner on an occassional table or chest or sofa table.
It is made of real jadestone, so the "panes" are mablized and lend a very organic but sophisticated feel to the room.
I have had mine for at least 3 years, maybe more and receive compliments whenever guests come to visit.

I bought this lamp for my home office, as sort of a night light. It's a smaller size and perfect for a little table or a dim corner. (this is definitely not a reading lamp.) The picture does not do this lamp justice. The ivory colored panels that are depicted in the photo are actually alternating panes of different jadestone patterns. They really resemble stone or marble rather than a plain pane of glass. If you are a nature lover, you will appreciate this. I was pleasently surprised when I opened the box and saw how pretty and unique this lamp really is. The quality and detail are excellent, this lamp is well made and quite heavy.
The only issue that I had was with the size of bulb to use. The package said to use a "B" size Candelabra bulb, but it was too tall to fit under the shade. The size of bulb that fits this lamp is actually a "G" size (16.5), the decorative round globe kind. I had to even muscle that bulb in, it barely fits. That's why I gave this lamp 4 stars instead of 5. But just buy the "G" size bulbs, you will love this lamp!
