The lamp is a great addition to our living room. I makes our space look a little more sophisticated, ;) it has a sturdy base (pretty heavy piece of round marble) thus the lamp stays in place and doesn't get displaced from its spot by a pet or 3yr old. The arc and the lamp head is adjustable, so you can angle it to where you would like the light to focus/fall. It was pretty easy to assemble. I could be assembled single-handed but I needed my husband's help at certain points, like lifting the base. I took away one star because I have a random part that I don't know where it goes and the lamp didn't come with an instruction manual
For the price, you can't beat it. A lot of these lamps cost twice as much and aren't any better. I really like the pattern it makes on the ceiling, that was an unexpected bonus. What may not be obvious is the lamp ships in 3 separate boxes and you may not receive all 3 at once. The base is actually 200 lbs! So it's a 2 person job to assemble, and you better be strong with slender fingers because the base is super heavy and the hole to put in the backing nut for the screw to lock the metal arc bar in place is pretty small. Unless you can deadlift 400+ pounds, don't try to move the base by yourself unless you are into hernias. Once assembled, it's awesome. Only thing I don't care for personally is the footswitch for on/off as I'd rather not have exposed the cord. It doesn't come with a bulb, but I found a great LED globe style bulb that is super bright and only 11W. Now that all the work is finished, I'm very happy with it!
