The description of these lamps said acrylic base, however, when they arrived, they were ceramic. I was VERY pleased as I was hesitant to purchase because didn't want acrylic. My only complaint is the shade. The material is a a thick woven material in an off white material that in my opinion does not match at all. I ended up purchasing shades from a large retail store that matched much better.
I first bought this lamp in 2015. Looked good, worked well, and didn't take any attention from anything else in the room - it blended with the decor. Recently turned the room into an office and needed more lighting. I bought another one Sept 2017. Assembled it in another room - Out of the box, noticed the plate is slightly different and the shade looked more white - brighter. The 2015 version is an off white. Since the lamps would be on opposite sides of the room figured changes wouldn't be noticeable. Moved lamp into the office and plugged it in. Ugh. This new version of the lamp's shade is super white when turned on and gives off a horrible bright uncomfortable light. Additionally now that I have a new lamp, it is apparent that the 2015 acrylic is yellowing. This happens to a lot of acrylic decor so not a surprise but lesson is to buy a pair of lamps at the same time so they age the same. The 2015 lamp base looks dirty in comparison to the new lamp. (The room doesn't get much direct light.). Keeping the new lamp - had tossed the packing material before turning it on. I plan to look for a new shade to see if that helps the situation with the brightness.
