I bought this lamp because I liked the polished look of it, but was very disappointed with the poor quality of the product and the cheap look of it. The main problem was the crystal that dangled from the lamp shade. First of all, it wasn't real crystal, but just cut plastic connected with cheap metal rings. Some of the smaller strands of 'crystals' just looked like cheap beads. The assembly of these beads was confusing and just had a tacky look. The metal material that comprised the base was very cheap looking as well . It seemed as though it was made of a copper like material (thin and easily dented) that was brushed with a silver coating instead of a real heavy duty polished material that was well polished. Also the lamp shade is more translucent in real life than it appears in the picture. When the bulbs are lit up, you can see them through the shade pretty well. (Which may be a positive or negative aspect depending on what you are looking for) Overall, I think that most consumers would be disappointed with the quality of product they receive for the amount they pay for the lamp. I think the reason most people would buy a product like this is because they want something that looks polished and elegant. What you actually end up with, however, is something that looks cheap and tacky.
