Ok, so I saw this lamp on here at the beginning of February & feel in love with it because it went perfect with my living room dťcor and I wanted two of them to go on the sides of my sofa. I ordered them even after reading some of the reviews that have been posted and Iím glad I did. Now what I will say is YES, it will need to be wiped down. It really is hand made in a village (lol). I purchased 2 of them & they were both a little dirty but nothing real serious (a little dirt & some finger prints). The lamps shades will need to be cleaned but itís a simple fix (hand wash them). The directions are junk. But since I ordered 2, I figured out an easy way to stretch the shade after struggling with the first one. First put the stakes in the holes then stretch the fabric over the stakes one by one. Believe me itís sooooo much easier that way. Also be careful because the red dot ink does run a little. Now donít let that discourage because once you have it set up & you turn it on at night it will be worth it, believe me. Itís not rocket science & for the price you wonít beat it especially if youíre looking for that special piece to finish your room. Everyone comments on my lamps. I didnít have any problems with the bulbs. I already had 60 watt Phillips at home & they worked perfectly (I wish I could post a picture). Enjoy, Enjoy Enjoy!
