The quality of this lamp is very good. It's very colorful when the light is on. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because of the foot switch on the cord. You have to have the cord sticking out in order to be able to turn it on and off, and this might not be so great with little kids or pets. I prefer the switch up high on the lamp. But it is beautiful, and I would like to get another one for the other side of the room!
