I like this lamp, the look of it is perfect for my living room. I put together a lot of things and found this slightly irritating as the directions were pictures and several of the parts look similar, but I managed it in about 30 minutes. Its a good value for the price.
Assembling required. Once u got the bottom shelf assembled it's smooth sailing. It took me 10 min. They send the exact amount of screws though. I wished they had sent at least 1 extra screw. And the glass shelves are not the same size. But I can live with it.
