The lamp is very stylish. It is also very good quality and substantial in height. I was looking for a 3-way lamp and found it all in this Cornelia. The lamp sits on a table in front of a large window and because of the open metal weave of the base, I like that it doesn't block the view - a plus. The light it projects is perfect from low, medium to high. The shade provides a warm glow as shown in the online photo. I would definitely recommend this lamp.
