This is an interesting looking lamp, and makes a visual impact. I bought two in white and hung them on either side of a queen-sized bed in a white room with white linens, and they still make a visual statement. The look of the lamp is its best feature. It is not very functional. The shallow shade reveals the bulb, which distracts from the look, so I placed my shades upside down to hide the bulb. Looks fine, but not practical for use as a reading lamp. The rigid bar has no articulation at it's "elbows", so the lamp sticks out very far from the wall with no ability to adjust it. It does swing from the wall plate, and the shade can be spun upside down. Overall, I suspect I will replace these with a lamp that can be moved around into more convenient positions for reading in bed.
Honestly this was pretty, but I ended up giving it away! I couldn't figure out how to hang it! Seriously my bad it would have looked great I'm sure. It's really large
