I am using this as a reading in the corner of my bedroom. It is much taller then I expected and a bit of a pain to put together ..but certainly not to bad. I did however expect a little bit more from the Ethan Home Collection...Lamp was made in China and arrived looking like it.....The shipping and packaging was more along the lines of something I would expect to see when ordering dorm furniture for my son. With that said the lamp must be 1) Braced in a corner behind a chair 2) Base firmly placed beneath a couch, bed or piece of furniture that will help keep in upright 3) or braced to a wall. ( The directions said there was a "brace" in the box but there was not) . ..This is not a piece you want in a high traffic area with kids around. This lamp WILL tip over if not properly secured. It will stand alone but I would never trust it to stay that way for long without support of some sort. Surprisingly I did really like the look of it after it was all set up although the"chrome" is so shiny it almost appears to be black. For the money I would recommend the piece providing you can meet the criteria for securing it. Definitely different and does provide a lot of much needed light for my reading chair and corner.
