This lamp is a wonderful light source and the style is beautiful. The lamp is heavy and sits securely on the floor. It looks way more expensive than it is. I liked my first one enough to buy another. The pair does a great job in a room that does not get much natural light.
Very very well made and heavy. Will not tip, provides great light. It is about 3" shorter than I would have liked and the instructions don't discuss how to pull the cord through when you screw the sections together. I bought 4. Very happy. Compared to crappy Lowes and HD floor lamps, this is a complete winner.
My husband and I set this up quite easily for next to the living room very large sofa that was just delivered. One thing about it: it's not as large as I had hoped. However, the quality is superior. I don't get what others said about the base of it. It is heavy but not too heavy. It has to hold the weight of what is above it, so it is not unusual at all to have a heavier base. I picked it up and moved it across the room and I had no problem at all. Don't think that this base is going to overwhelm anything or anyone! I almost didn't purchase it because of some of the slightly negative reviews. The separators between the glass balls are silver, so if you are going for gold, don't buy this. I think it's a beautiful lamp. The shade is not so great, so if you have to replace it, it's still a heck of a lot cheaper to do that than to buy a lamp of this quality elsewhere.
