I was a little disappointed that the color was not quite as pictured. The lamp is more predominately blue than anticipated. I was also disappointed that the lights are not on a 3-way switch so you can control the brightness of the light, it only has an on/off switch. Overall though, it seems to go well in the room it was intended for, which is our living room that has a large blue and burgandy colored area rug from Turkey. The lamp has a good solid base and the lamp shade does not wobble. I wish the colors were a little more muted, but my husband likes it!
