I bought two of these to use as bedside lamps. Unfortunately, they are identical, meaning that the nightlight on the on one on the right side of the bed faces the bed, but the one on the left faces the wall. We ended up just flipping it around, so now the cord sticks out the front and looks silly. The black cord nearly blends in with the very dark brown, so it really isn't that noticeable, and at least now the nightlight part is useful. Also, unless your hands are the size of a very small child's, reaching up under the shade to turn off the light is nearly impossible. We got some Lutron dimmers, which make it much easier to use. Overall, we're very pleased with these lamps and they fit in great with our decor.
This lamp is pictured as brown wood but actually looks more black than brown in reality. The wood is very thin and is made cheaply for what the price is advertised. I will keep the lamp but wouldn't recommend anyone else to purchase it.
I received this joke of a lamp (if it was smaller it would be a toy lamp) on 2/27/2015. From the advertised pics it appears much bigger than the miniature look up close, and it lacks class and sophistication. Up close and personal, I barely felt comfortable putting this TOY in my bedroom. DEFINETELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!
