i didn't know what to label this...the lamp is totally beautiful and the light it puts out is fantastic...the dimming feature is wonderful. so why am i giving this only 3 stars? because the top shade is way crooked and i can bend it to make it somewhat level, but then it just goes back to crookedeness(is that a word?) anyway, the lamp does look really awesome, so i'm going to return this and order another one. hopefully it's just an anomaly and the next 1 will be perfecto, in which case i will give it 5 stars lol.
