As everyone else has noted, the shade received is a darker, golden tan (rather than the light ivory shown) but is beautiful, regardless. Assembly was 1-2-3, and it looks great on a small table tucked into an otherwise dim corner of our living room. We have a 3-way bulb in the lamp, but it only works on one setting, so if you're looking for a guaranteed 3-way light, this may not be it (it works for someone else though, so who knows what you'll get)... The shade does sort of rotate when you turn it on, but that's a minor and easily-fixed inconvenience. Overall, and especially for the price, VERY happy w/this light.
I wanted to love this lamp, but it's pretty awful. The base pictured (small, thick) is NOT what is sent (a large, thin/flat plate). The two pieces that form the arm DO NOT SCREW completely together. As another review noted, the pieces just do not fit-- with pliers we could get it the two pieces to within about 1/3" apart, leaving the bright silver threading showing. The shade material and texture are also different than what was pictured-- still nice enough, but not what was shown. Very disappointing, and will have to return. What a pain, and still no lamp for where we needed it.
I bought two for our master bedroom end tables. We have fairly large table tops so they can handle these large lamps. They are really beautiful and such a fantastic price. I've searched all the discount places and could not find anything this nice for such a great price. They were packed incredibly well and arrived in perfect condition.
If you are using them on bedroom end tables, just be sure you have space enough for the base of the lamp (about 8 inches) and anything else you might want to put on the table (clock, etc.)
