I just received these lamps and I am very pleased. They were extremely easy to assemble and I think the value and quality are excellent. However, I was a bit surprised by the way the looked in person compared to the image online. I even checked the website when I opened the box because I thought I was sent the wrong lamps. From the image online, the metal work appears to look like a woven globe when in fact, it's just a metal spiral and the woven look is an illusion. Nonetheless, I'm still happy with them and they're very versatile - they make a nice addition to almost any room. I highly recommend them!
