As of right now, while trying to put this lamp together, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I'm having difficulty attaching the base to the lamp...the first step in putting this lamp together...I'm guessing so since there are no instructions included. The base is extremely heavy and trying to balance the lamp post with that to attach....using one person...is not an easy task. I'm about to throw this thing out the window. Might be a different story once it's together, but right now, I'm not liking this!!!
