You can't go wrong with an Uttermost lamp! Packed so well it was almost difficult getting it out of the box. Super easy to assemble. I love the detail that hides the fact that it has a two part stem. Excellent weight, so no worry that it will easily be knocked over. One drawback, it's a bit tall. I purchased the table lamp as well, and the combined height of the side table (typical at 24") and the table lamp is a good 6" shorter than this floor lamp. It's nearly impossible to reach the switch control from a seated position in the chair it stands next to...being 6" shorter would have helped...not to mention, the bulb is visible from the seated position...again, being shorter would have helped here as well. I fixed this offense by placing the lamp at the back of the chair. Also, I wish they would have taken greater care to get the weave of the lamp shade straight in all segments. I'm a bit OCD, I doubt that most would even notice this faux-paw. In any event, I have turned the shade so the the worst of the segments are in the back. These two issues aside, I truly love the lamp...a great statement piece!
