Two lamps are the perfect addition to Asian dark hardwood king platform bed set with two smallish, 18' x 18", night / bed stands. The 'metal' stand is dark brown that passes as black. The lamps have thick anti-scratch felting under metal base. The shades are the same light beige color as most other 'off-white' lamp shades, and also match both a light beige duvet and the light beige matting for two large shadow box framed Kimonos. In other words it is a standard lamp shade color and same as standard color for most things "lite beige". Only con, as mentioned by most every review, is the slight difficulty reaching the switch. Now, am using 60 watt equivalent compact fluorescents, until I find an LED 3-way bulb...if said bulb is even available yet. Also bought the taller model, that sets on matching chest of drawers. The three lamps add to the overall ambiance of my large 'Asian minimalist bedroom'. The lamps soften the room, on or off.
I really like this lamp! It goes beautifully with my living room furniture and coordinates well with an antique table lamp. I would have given it 5 stars, but the lamp harp/finial assembly was missing. Fortunately, I was able to salvage a harp and finial from s lamp that I was discarding.
