Since it's hard to tell by the picture, I should mention that the bamboo is a dark brown color and the switch to turn in on and off is on the cord. It takes 2 regular bulbs; type A, 40 watt. The paper shade material is strong and would probably be difficult to rip/damage. The shade is fairly thick so the lamp won't give you a really brightly lit room. I bought it for use as a reading light so I wouldn't have to get out of bed to turn off the lights, and works perfectly for that. Not too bright, not too dim. One downside is that the base of the lamp is a light weight wood which makes it top heavy and if you've got kids or pets, it could easily be knocked over. I personally have mine against a wall and between my bed and nightstand so it's not an issue. Aesthetically, it's very stylish, elegant and well made. It's perfect if you're going for the Asian look. The picture on the website doesn't do it justice; it's very nice looking!
This is a great lamp. It shipped in excellent condition and in a timely manner. No assembly required. The light is kind of dim but works for the area I have it in. I wouldn't recommend it as a primary source of light or for a large room unless in the evening while reading or something like that.
