The lamp is very heavy and the neutral square shade is big, dramatic and impressive. You do have to put it together, but not difficult. It's clean and modern looking which is what I needed. Can't beat this lamp for around 100 bucks. In fact, I'm thinking about ordering another one for the other end of the couch.

Hard to assemble but I did it without help. The instructions aren't great, e.g., no mention of the locking washers. The shade is very large and blocks quite a lot of light, so I used a higher wattage bulb than I would have liked. It looks good, feels solid and stands straight.
The reason that I rated this so low is entirely because assembly can be so difficult. Don't buy it unless you have two people to put it together and one of those somewhat handy. My husband and I spent 30 frustrating minutes and gave up. But our soninlaw and 12-year-old grandson did it in 10 minutes! The lamp does have a great presence though, and I like it very much. Looks very expensive and can't believe the price is so low!
This "simple 10 min"assembly took 4 people over an hour and yet it still wouldn't assemble.It was scratched on parts made what appears to be at assembly.Could have been wonderful if the straight piece was one piece not 2.Have to return this defective lamp asap.
Much larger shade than I anticipated.....it is difficult for one person to assemble, as the instructions are a bit vague!......and it is necessary to adjust them.....but.....it sits over the couch, provides an abundant amount of light for reading and computer work...... Dark linen shade....dies not quite match the other ones in the room, but is a good addition.
Really nice style and color. We bought two and they would have been great, but ultimately just not good enough quality. The main problem is that the long part of the stand comes in two pieces (typical for tall floor lamps) but the two pieces do not join well so it make the whole lamp look cheap! If I had paid $* or less these would be great, but for > $* a piece they are going back.
