The lamp is beautiful. Arrived perfect. However, the shade is not white, it is ivory and the seam on the shade is huge… probably not a problem if you are placing this lamp against a wall or in a corner; but mine stands between two chairs in the center of a great room… that seam is everywhere! I will replace the shade with a white one and be happy. I would purchase this lamp again, shade and all… it is a beautiful lamp.
It was a little difficult to put together since the instructions are not helpful. It's perfect behind the couch as a reading light. The switch to turn it off and on is easy to reach while I sitting on the couch.
This lamp was exactly what I was looking for to set on my Bombay chest in the living room. I live in a very small apartment and I enjoy typing on my computer in the evening. My computer station sits next to the Bombay chest and I discovered how pleasant it was to have a warm lit glow from my small 4 foot Christmas tree last month and wanted to recreate that same light for the remainder of the year. This lamp does the trick! I enjoy having a soft lamp to see the keyboard with and I can even balance my checkbook with the full 60 watt light bulb in there. I plan on using a 40 watt as I prefer to have an even softer glow for simple computer work. Looking forward to trying out colored bulbs for ambiance changes as well. This makes a great TV watching light too, as I enjoy candles and low light while watching movies. The shade PVC but it has a parchment look cloth covering that changes the unlit white look to an aged parchment yellow/ivory appearance when lit. I love it! Pay attention to the measurements, as I personally think it is a wonderful size for a small chest or tall cabinet pedestal type of furniture, but way too short (16") for a floor lamp.
