These lamps are well made and heavy but the overall look is more casual than the picture suggests. I did not need a bright light so the darker shade was OK, but the amber colored glass makes the lamp look more casual than I expected. They look nice in my family room and go well with my decor, so overall I am happy with my purchase. One irritation was that the shade did not want to hang straight. You have to adjust the piece that holds the finial to get the shade to hang properly. Sturdy pliars did the trick.
It is a little less amber in color than what shows online which is great very neutral and would go with any decor or room. I liked it so much I bought another for another bedroom to use as a night table lamp. Very nice shade and finial, the details truly make the lamp! Anyone would like the look.
