This is a great little lamp, just perfect as an overhead lamp over a chair for reading or knitting in a tight space, which was the purpose for which I purchased this lamp. The color was exactly as shown, it was super easy to assemble and works great. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent was that I was hoping the light would be more diffuse, as it's a very concentrated light. However, it's a great value and I'm very happy with it.
It is a good reading light, I use it for my computer key board. It has a simple toggle swich and assembles easily.

My daughter liked this lamp when I bought it for her as a Christmas gift, so I bought one for myself too. It is solidly made of metal - not cheep, light plastic. I use it beside a chair as a spot reading light. It shines a directed, bright beam on my work surface. The beam of light is somewhat narrow, making this a very good reading or worklight. This is not a light I would use to illuminate a room. I wasn't sure if the bulb wattage would be enough, but I've found this light is plenty bright for me.
A great floor lamp that takes up very little space. Nice color (brownish gunmetal-like) that blends well with most any decor. Just keep in mind that the small light head will not cast a very wide coverage. For example, I placed it next to a small recliner and find that I have to position my body slightly toward it while reading.
We love this lamp! It sits betwixt my husband & myself & because of the gooseneck we can wangle it all around, so I can use it for very small spots of light for sewing & crochet & folding clothes, reading, etc. but when we need the entire room lit up but not from the dread 'overhead' lights, we can point it at the ceiling or wall & we have all the light we need for both of us to read but not glaring light! And the light doesn't ever get too hot to touch! It also is small so doesn't make the room too light when we watch TV....yes, we are old and we watch too much TV. And that's the way we like it!
