Stunning to look at, but very time consuming to assemble and not very study. Each "tentacle" had to be individually screwed into a cross bar inside the shade. Some of the tiny screws and nuts and rusty to that it requires soap, or some non-staining lubricant to unscrew the end of the tentacle, in order to rescrew is back into the cross bar. The idea is simple, but the execution took hours and was painstaking, and fortunately my hands are relatively small. I don't know how a man or woman with large hands would be able to fit their hand inside the shade and do some of the maneuvers required to screw certain tentacles in. Also, the lamp stand itself is hollow and very light. the top or the stand fits midway into the shaft and the bottom. It does not screw in, but merely fits in. This makes it unsteady and the top will come off immediately if it is not picked up low enough down, or with two hands. If the two parts were screwed together, it would make it much more stable. Since, the metal is hollow it is therefore very light weight which adds to the instability. When assembled, however, it looks gorgeous and I have received many compliments.

First of all, the lamps are gorgeous. The shade totally makes the lamp because of it's triangular shape. This is not a reading lamp, more of a mood setting lamp. Comes with a bulb. My main complaint is the switch placement. Your hands get scratched from the metal trimming when trying to turn on and off. I just unplug it from the wall. Trimmed in metal that looks like wrought iron, with the same trim on all sides. Even though they are advertised as floor lamps , they are quite short. I placed one on a side table and the other on my dresser. All in all I'm happy I bought them. Very different and original.

First off, it looks great. The first problem was the bulb fixture had come undone-easy to fix with a pair of pliers. The main problem is that the bulb was touching the leather-definite fire potential. That can be fixed by bending the metal bar that supports the bulb. I would suggest putting in a fluorescent bulb.

The lamp was very easy to assemble (took me about 8 minutes without even looking for instructions) and the metal parts are solidly constructed. The stand feels very solid, and the base is weighted appropriately. The plastic parts around the assembly that hold the bulb feels cheaper, and part of it was chipped in shipping. It wasn't anything major, and is never seen because the shade covers it up anyway. But, I can see where that area of the lamp could be easily damaged in a way that would make it unusable. I would recommend this lamp for accent/supplementary lighting purposes.
While deciding to redecorate a room, the idea may start small -- a fresh coat of paint, an accent chair to warm up a bare corner or new pictures to hang on the wall. Somewhere along the line, you notice that you need new lamp shades. Or maybe you find the perfect table lamps but aren't too crazy about the shades. It is quite easy to just change out lamp shades. Before running off on a quest to find the perfect new shades for your table lamps and floor lamps, ensure that they will fit by measuring your current lamp shades.
