This lamp was very easy to put together. The stop-gap on the wire underneath the base is difficult to move along the wire, and (for me) results in a coil of wire being visual outside the base. It would be great to have some retainers under the base on which to coil the wire. Additionally, while the colors are vibrant, the lens will not seat evenly in its socket. From any, angle, the lens appears off-kilter indicating poor workmanship.
