We had two of these lamps shipped. The first one arrived with the wiring within the chrome tubing completely severed due to poor packaging and a rough transit via UPS. The base is extremely heavy compared to the rest of the unit and that excess weight on one end pulled the chrome tubing over the wiring in a way that hacked through the wiring rendering it useless. No problem, we thought, we will just get another one. Just received the replacement, opened it and immediately saw the same damage in the same place. The wiring is completely severed. And the way it is packaged...I am surprised it even showed up in good of condition as it was....there needs to be more stability within the box or more cushioning. This would have been a nice lamp if it weren't for the shipping & packing damage.

When I bought this lamp, there was only 1 review available and it was rather negative. I decided to take my chances, and Im so glad I did! Its a great, fun piece for my wine-themed room. Definitely stick to the recommended 40-watt light bulbs. Beyond that, the lamps get too hot. I love the floor on / off switch. Im very happy with this purchase.
