Customer reviewsGood quality lovely finish--BUT post seems thicker than in images chunkier than expected .
I was reluctant to order a lamp at this price sight-unseen, but I'm happy to report the quality is very good. It is sturdy base is heavy , the lines are true, the oil-rubbed bronze finish is lovely doesn't have the 'brassy' edges you sometimes see in such a finish it's a lovely warm smoky black-brown-grey , and the shade is a tasteful natural linen. Packaging was flawless--nothing could have budged or become damaged barring abusive handling. Note: shade ships separately. Assembly was simple, though the shade took some noodling hint: unscrew the plastic ring around the bulb-socket that will then screw in again on top of the shade-ring and on top of the diffuser, holding them snug to the socket. The bulb will screw in over that . My only disappointment was that somehow the post seemed a little more slender in the photos there's a gawky transition from the thick tubing of the post to the much finer tubing of the fold-out pieces--to my eye, the proportions are awkward. I chose this lamp for its small scale, low height, and swing-out arm. In all those respects, it is right on. Just that way the proportions bother my eye are a disappointment--had I seen it in the store, I would have made a note of it as a 'contender', and likely kept looking to assess other options. I don't regret the purchase, though it's a nice lamp.
