I replaced a torchere with this lamp, so now I find it annoying to be able to look up while seated on the sofa underneath and feel like I'm in the police station interrogation room under a bare lightbulb. I was also used to a 300 watt bulb and I need more light to read. So now it stands in the corner in the off position. There's no way a regular human would ever be able to or have the time to repack this thing to ship it back. Even if it was really defective or damaged In fact, putting it together with only 2 hands was a bit tricky I also own the original design in table lamp form and because they're in a different room, this lamp looks pretty good since it can't be compared side by side. If you're not picky it's fine.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. If you have OCD and will fixate on the fact that this lamp will likely never be exactly verticle, keep searching. If you need bright ambient light, rather than medium and glaring down on you when you're seated, make another choice. Ithe good news is the cost is relatively low so it his stuff may not bug you.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty good. Mine came in 3 pieces, not 2. The packaging was clever and extensive.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
