The lamp arrived the other evening and the box looked smaller than I imagined the product. Once I pulled it out of the box I was instantly impressed. The lamp is very uniquely crafted and easy to assemble. I assembled it myself in less than 15 minutes. The product did not come with bulbs, I'm currently using energy saver bulbs and they're working perfectly. I thought the lamp may have various settings, but there is only one. Very bright-maybe it's just my bulbs? Overall-I absolutely LOVE THE LAMP! It looks stunning in my living room. The fabric did have a few black smudges on them, but nothing that couldn't be cleaned off-they're hardly noticeable. I highly recommend this lamp!!
