The styrofoam did keep the lamp safe in transport, but it sure is a huge mess! I had to bother a neighbor to help me get the crystals onto the lamp, as it does seem to take four hands. My neighbor gave an unsolicited "thumbs up" for how pretty the lamp is, as she was helping me put it together. The lamp looks lovely in my purple accented master bedroom. My lamp came with one string of crystals not attached like the others were. I am wondering if this was a defect or the point to which you add the first low dangle crystal. I didn't read the directions so I am not sure. I just hooked the two pieces together with a low dangle crystal.
The lamp looks nice and seems well made. The lamp has substantial weight which makes it stable. Very pleased with the lamp and consider it a good quality lamp at a fair value.
Thank goodness Overstock stands behind the products they sell. I ordered 2 of these lamps at the same time. One lamp is bright, shiny silver, which is the look I want for my family room. The other lamp, which was packaged slightly different, was dull and appeared more gold tinged. Two more orders of the same lamp (one arrived damaged) I finally have a closer match to the shiny silver lamp. Customer service is outstanding.
