I was disappointed in the purchase. When the lamps are turned on, as pictured online, they are beautiful. However, when the lamps are turned off (i.e., daytime), they look gaudy. The designs on the lamp shade are in gold color. The base of the lamp is made of some brown plastic material. I didn't return the lamps because of the cost of shipping them back. I am looking for replacement lamps. This time, I definitely want to see the lamps in person before purchasing.
