After reading other reviews, I decided to order two of these as bedside table lamps for my daughter's bedroom. They came quickly, but when I pulled them out of the boxes, I noticed the poor quality of the "chrome" bases -- some kind of cheap material that is attached with glue to real base, causing it to wave around the edge and look plastic-y. Not sure how exactly to describe this effect, but certainly not the look I was trying to achieve. Also, bottom of lamp is poorly finished with some flimsy rubber film that was already detaching from aforementioned wavy "chrome" around exterior. These are poor replicas of the versions at ******* Returning them is easy, thanks to Overstock's policy.
