This lamp is nice and very attractive. But it is not Chrome. The finish of the legs is sort of like a brushed nickel or brushed stainless steel. As the title states, I thought I was getting a lamp with a polished finish, which was what I was specifically looking for. So needless to say, I was very disappointed and this item is going back. The picture on display here on overstock.com appears to have the appearance of shiny chrome. I wish that over stock.com would change the description to be more accurate. I called and complained and said I was returning this item and strongly suggested that they changed the description of this lamp. I see that they have not done so, so hopefully people who read my review will know the specifics on this item in case it matters, like it in did with me..
Where do I start with this item? There is nothing to secure to top shape onto the unit. The legs are AWFUL. If I could return this item, I would. I can't believe I paid that amount of money for a floor lamp that sucks this bad. The legs (where they twist together) are coming apart and the lamp is falling after just 2 weeks of owning it. I've had to put plumbers tape on the threads before putting he legs apart just from keeping them from falling apart. Even with them together, the the legs at the joints are ALL crooked and look AWFUL. Do NOT purchase this lamp if you're looking for a good one. Def. not worth the money. I would never buy this lamp again.
This lamp is very nice. It is much sturdier than it looks online. 4 stars because it's listed as chrome but it is actually brushed nickel/steel. So, if shiny chrome is what you this is not the one. I kept it because it looks fab. in my living room anyway.
