I feel in love with this lamp the moment I saw it online, but I was overly impressed when I received it...I thought it was a wooden base, but I was pleasantly surprised when I realized it was a oiled brushed bronze metal material and it literally put together in 5-10 minutes with no tools needed...I was beyond impressed with the shipping too...it took 3 days from the day I ordered it and it was sitting in my house! I will definitely order 1 or 2 more in the very near future.
I had bought this lamp to go with a lamp shade that I had already purchased from Pottery Barn. I was originally looking for a wood lamp base, but liked this one when I saw it. It looks sort of like wood but it's metal, making it pretty durable. It was easy to assemble, but I was a little disappointed about how short it is. I'm sure it's a normal height for floor lamps, but we have tall ceilings, and over sized wing backed reading chairs so it seems to get lost in the room a little. It comes with a lamp shade that is off white-and brown, it looks ok, but it's kind of plain.
