I ordered this lamp thinking the base was stone. It is cheap laminated blond wood. My lamp came with nicks on both sides. I had planned to put this in my living room but it will go elsewhere in the house. From a distance of 40 feet, it looks acceptable. Cheap product, not worth the money.
I ordered 2 lamps. The shade on the one came in fine, the other had some damage on one side. The type of damage seemed more from manufacturing then shipping. Since it was on one side and was putting it against a wall in a bedroom I decided it was easier to keep then return. Overall I feel the look of the lamp is nicer online. From a distance the lamp looks nice, but if get close to the lamp you will notice the seam at the top of the base and that the finish is not the quality it should be. I was putting the lamps in a rarely used bedroom and at a distance they work in the room so I kept them. If I had bought the lamps for a living room or master bedroom, I would have returned.
