I bought two of these lamps in August to go with a new bedroom set. I unwrapped them and they appeared to be in good condition, however the bases looked as if they were crushed inwards. It was in the same spot so I figured they were fine. I just got my new bedroom set and finally took the lamps out of boxes which were stored in my closet in order to not cause harm. One does not even turn on and the other smells as if something is burning. I loved the design but I would never recommend these to anyone.
