Packing was loose with parts difficult to locate so be very careful when opening the shipping package. The assembly instructions are primitive and one must create their own from the picture of the lamp. Horizontal reach of the lamp arm is achieved only by varying the arc of the arm with the counterbalance extending back more as more horizontal reach is achieved. Thus the lamp is positioned in an arc with light clost to the lamp coming from a very high position, as there is no independent vertical adjustment. Thus, room must be made for the counter balance arm for long reaches. A room corner for this works well. Once assembled and positioned the lamp is quite functional, gives good reading light and presents an acceptable, but a bit ungainly, appearance. For the price it is a keeeper.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Construction of balance arm not as pictured but probably a better design.
Glad I went for this lamp have always loved this style of lighting it is well made and has a strong heavy base to keep it grounded. Love that it has a step off and on switch. Nice shade, arm adjusts easily, and can be made any length for whatever your needs are. Like how the shade area adjusts for whatever length the arm is.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same as on line
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Base very heavy and sturdy, good quality shade, lighting end of lamp is on a hinge so it can be adjusted depending on how long you set the arc out
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate feel like I got what I expected
