Looks great, but I can't get it to stand straight. I've tried propping it up, placing it on different surfaces...neither worked. Only other thing I can think of is tying it to the wall, but before I try that, I think I'll just take it to the garage or throw it away.
This was a bit challenging to assemble, although it doesn't seem like it should be. Having more than one person would probably have taken care of that. It looks great in my living room and works well. The marble base came intact although there are a few scratches along the metal pole, not enough that I wanted to bother sending it back for a replacement though.
Great lamp and high quality. The lamp is large and works perfect in my room with 18ft ceiling. If you purchase, dimmer bulbs are needed. The shade can be tilted and there is a small handle on the base of the bulb so you don't have to touch the shade,. The marble base was chipped and OS is sending me a new base. The marble base can tuck under a sofa or chair. And the on/off switch is lighted so no searching in the dark. Great product at a decent price.
