I ordered two lamps for reading lamps to go on our nightstands. They look great in the room and give perfect light for reading at night. I was a little surprised by how lightweight they are, but not too alarmed. I suppose I should have expected that from a lantern style lamp. Just a little too easily knocked around on the table, however they are super easy to assemble. I did it in about 10minutes while watching Law and Order! Overall, a great choice for our first little apartment.
