Beautiful lamp,heavy..transitional style. Kind of mad that the focal point shade hangs crooked no matter what I do. Assembly is very tricky. Mine only came with one of the 3 required screws and when I tried to tighten it,it fell into the base and would not shake out. Contacted the company for more screws and they mailed them in a regular envelope which came to me ripped and can u guess? Without any screws in it! No hardware store has these screws,you must go to fastenal hardware to get them. With the crooked hang to the shade,given the high price for this item,I could not recommend this to anyone.

This lamp is very nice, but the box it came it was two boxes taped together, and was very difficult to unpack. The foam packing inside exploded into millions of tiny foam balls that attached to everything via static. They were stuck in the springs of the lamp and hard to clean out. Our lamp shade was broken at one weld, but my husband was able to repair without returning. We have really struggled with getting the lamp shade to balance and hang straight. Overall, I will keep, but I was not as happy as I expected to be with the lamp.
I plugged a smart bulb in there, and now get all the colors of the rainbow via a controller app on my phone. My only feature wish for this item would be to have it swivel at the base. Have hardwood floors, so I ended up cutting out some cardboard to allow me to twist it in the direction I want. Should also make the base cover of a harder material. I dropped a small piece of metal on it (forgot - keys, nail clippers?), now there's a ding.
The problem I had with this light was that there was too much play in the base. The setscrews captured the support pole but were designed to allow the lamp to swivel. However the tolerance was too large so it also allowed the lamp to tilt to the right. This could not be corrected by further tightening so I returned the lamp. Kudos to Overstock, they refunded my money promptly.
