Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer A good buy
The lamp itself is nothing great to look at and in terms of quality it is okay, but serves its purpose and I am very pleased with that. I too do not like reading with the glare of the overhead light on my porch, so when I read the review that mentioned this I thought it was a great idea to have a lamp. My lamp shade is clearly army green, not bluish green or other variations, and works fine with my other colors. Apparently the picture used is the one that is on the box. The cord is quite long and a safety cord. In terms of how it looks to me, I am happy that I did not pay full-price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ncford Great price and function
I bought this lamp so that I could read on my patio in the evening without the harsh overhead light. It is heavy duty so I don't have to worry about the wind blowing it over. I will say that the packaging is really good, in fact it took some effort to get it all out of the box. They include the bulb and a special protective cover which was a nice touch and the cord is really long. The only suggestion I would make is that it would have been perfect if it was a 3 way lamp. Other than that I love it and the price was 1/3 of what I've seen elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OutdoorLivingRoom Very nice looking lamp. I was impressed by its design.
Lamp came in a box. Very easy assembly directions. Looks almost too nice to be outside, but we use our deck as an outdoor living room so the lamp is really an excellent accent. Light at night is directed down, so it's easy to read and talk by, plus the shade is beautiful. Photo on website does not do it justice...much more beautiful than can be seen on the site. Very pleased with this lamp. Everything geared to outdoor weather - exterior electric cord, weight, even the switch to turn lamp on and off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy really heavy, making it great outdoors, attractive
bought this lamp for our covered deck and it is much nicer looking than the picture. The shade is heavy, but allows plenty of light to shine through. The light bulb is covered by a heavy glass globe and the switch is protected also. This lamp exceeded my expectations both in appearance and function. A high wind came through and blew over patio chairs, but the lamp did not blow over. Pretty enough for home or deck

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Diana I am sad
I think this lamp will do ok outside, but when I saw the shade my heart was broken. I thought it was going to be what is in the picture, and I have looked to see if there is another color shade in the description, but I could not find one.
I ordered 2 of these lamps, but the shades are a dark blue - greenish color, not what you see. :(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retro Excellent Item
We were looking for outdoor lamps for our screened-in porch. We were delighted to find this one because others we'd looked at were out of our price range.
This item is beautiful and sturdy. It far exceeded our expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alex1 I love this lamp
it is great for out doors and if you have any animals (that knock things over ) this product is great. It is reinforced EVERYWHERE.
I'm actually thinking of getting another on for inside use

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dee14 Better than expected!
This lamp is such a find. Very heavy so it withstands the wind. Shade is made of durable fabric, much nicer than in the picture. Very well made and perfect for an outdoor patio, where I have mine. This compares to any outdoor lamp priced much high. Highly recommend. You won't be sorry.
