Honestly, the materials, including the glass shade are better than most of these style lamps have available at any regular store, although mine had an internal fastener arrive broken, so I won't be keeping this lamp ;-(
This really is a great looking lamp. Others have stated the legs were black, I agree they are quite dark but you can see the rubbed bronze tone in really bright light. The cord is run internally through one of the legs (a relief!) and it's super easy to put together. My only criticism is I wish it had a higher wattage capacity. The lamp only handles 150 watts total (25 if you're using CFLs) just barely meeting my needs. That said, I still love it and would highly recommend.
We order these two for night stands next to a very high platform bed. They are tall and work perfectly. While I liked the fact that they are internally lighted, I doubt that we will ever turn them on.
