I purchased this lamp for a bedside table, and it arrived timely and in good condition. It is pretty, and the color is as pictured. I paid heed to reviewers and had a 40 watt equivalent LED chandelier base bulb ready for installation (laughing when I saw the tiny nightlight bulb they packed with it!). The assembly is theoretically simple; you screw a plastic ring on the base, then thread the bulb through the shade opening so it secures the pieces. Unfortunately, even the larger LED bulb can in no way hold firm the ring of the shade onto the base, so that the shade is free to tip crazily whenever it is moved or jostled, leaving a possibility for breaking the bulb. The shade seats level, and the lamp can be used if you are careful not to budge it, but the unsecured shade makes me a bit nervous. It seems there should have been a second screwing ring to hold things in place. The lamp provides a decent amount of light when you replace the included nightlight bulb with the LED, perhaps enough to read by if you are very close. The shade Does Not yield the pretty cutout shadows onto the wall as shown in the picture, even when using the much stronger bulb. As a curious aside, a random item was included in the packaging with the lamp, which caused me to wonder about the quality control at the packaging plant. Upon opening the lamp box, a new, unused "cell phone ring" was also inside-a sticker-backed metal square with a hinged metal ring that you can apply to the back of your cell phone so that you can hold it more securely.
