When this lamp first arrived, I was so excited. It was perfect for my room. However, within months, the woods beams began splitting in half. The cracks are slowing growing longer and longer. I won't be surprised if it slips completely in half and crumbles on my floor. Pretty disappointing.
After reading several negative reviews, I hesitated to purchase this lamp. I really loved its appearance though, so I took a chance. I did not find it difficult to assemble; in fact I thought it was fun. It looks great, works fine and ended up in my bedroom. The only negative comment I have is that the wood is a lot darker on mine than in the photos, but it's understandable there would be variation in a handmade product. Overall, I am greatly pleased!
this lamp is simple and very unique in design. i love the look and plan on buying more. it is like something in a swanky sushi bar. it arrived clean and with one small stain on the fabric, but all in all presentable. the price is a lil high for the materials used, but the statement the lamp has makes up for it. the are making a fortune from this!!!
As soon as I can get the dumb thing back in it's package, I'll be returning it! As others have said, the whole product is dirty and while the shades were easy to wash they quickly became dirty again when I re-installed them. When I finally did get the lamp put together, it didn't work. A lamp should not be this difficult!
All in all this is a good lamp. I was lucky to find a lamp that fit what I was looking for, what luck and timing. It was pretty easy to assemble. The fabric appearers creamy in the picture but it is WHITE!. I was able to work with it. It is not cheap but you won't find this lamp anywhere else.
The lamp looks greats, goes with the darker hardwood floors in the apartment - people notice it immediately and say it looks really nice. The instructions leave a little to be desired, but it can figured out if you know what it is supposed to look like. Feels cheap, but seems ok for the moment. Changing the bulbs requires some contortion and dexterity - i recommend fluorescent bulbs because of the long life - and the environment, of course.
When I first seen this lamp I knew it was for me! My home has a very urban decor, with lots of African/Spanish/Moroccan kinda feel to it (tastfully done). I love to collect items from these different cultures especially when they are handmade just like this lamp. I LOVE THIS LAMP!! It has added a beautiful touch to my home and I will probably get another one to match. It arrived in the mail quickly and was so easy to put together. I did it myself and had no problems. BUY IT!
This is a very unique lamp. It is shorter than I expected and took two to put together. Other than that ,it was a good purchase. At first one of the lights did not function but my husband was able to fix it by adjusting a screw. We use it in our game room and it gives a very casual modern feel.
