I wanted a tall, modern-looking lamp for my bedroom, to go near a reading/work chair. I don't want my bedroom looking TOO girly, although I have flowers on the nightstand, and the table where the lamp is. This balances out things nicely. It's tall, elegant, and looks expensive which, for me, it was. Some people spend way more on a lamp and don't think twice. For me, more than a hundred bucks and I'd better LOVE it. I do love this lamp. Would recommend to anyone looking for something lovely, classy and unique. The top part of the 'stem', right underneath the shade, is only about ..maybe two inches... wide, and it's squared, so it looks slender, modern, and clean, but not too bulky. The base is ten inches across, and you can either put some knick knack on it, or plant, or leave it clean looking.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close. The metal on the lamp looks black in photo, but it's black-ish chrome. Reflective like a mirror, only dark. Beautiful.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality. Marble base is heavy, lamp is substantial.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very.
