These lamps are stunning. They were very easy to put together and look like very expensive heirloom lamps at a fraction of the price. The twin pair of floor lamps look beautiful flanking by king size bed. I love the contrast in color of the metals, including the bronze, brushed nickle, and marble ring at the top. The lamps are heavy and sturdy. I am very pleased with how the light radiates through the shade, and the shade takes on a metallic sheen when lit.
