Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cmontesi Pretty good! Easy to install and looks great!
This product delivers in a huge way. If you need a decent floor lamp but also shelves for stuff you have laying around, then this is what you need.
It took me literally 10 minutes to assemble. Here is a tip for you so you won't make the same mistake as I.
Each shelf will have a white sticker on one face. Make sure that face where the sticker is placed is facing DOWN. Because for the love of god, that sticker leaves marks and is a pain to get rid of.
I paired this floor lamp with a Cree 6w 4flow A19 bulb(the new ones)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Firewall Easy to assemble. Looks good, and is functional.
This unique lamp is easy to assemble. I think I understand how others failed at putting this together. You do NOT want to tighten down each screw like it's a spark plug in your car! Just screw in the 'beams' until they are barely tight, then turn 1/4 more and you're done!
I think what most people who have complained here did, was keep tightening the 'beams' or legs until they broke or cracked. Think about it; it's plastic and wood - not metal! You can't just keep tightening the beams until they don't spin anymore because you WILL damage them.
The bad reviews about 'cracked wood' and things during assembly must be user error.
It looks good, and it is a convenient lamp with shelves to place little things on.
I think it would be an excellent value at $40 - but at $60 it's average. Would I buy it again at $60? Yes!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Way2Poppy Not worth the cost
This is a neat looking lamp, and with the shelving is great for a corner or even as a night stand in a guest bedroom. But the quality is definitely not worth $60. The wooden pieces are light and cheap. Installation is a breeze with everything screwing together nicely. But the boards creak as you tighten them, and one even broke with very little pressure while screwing in. Once together it looks nice, but is not very stable. You wouldn't want to put any collectibles or anything fragile as just turning on the lamp will cause it to wobble significantly. For $30 it would be fine, but not for $60.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kudzu terrible odor
This lamp seemed like a perfect bedside table solution, and it probably would have been if I could stand to sleep near it.
I tend to be sensitive to things like fresh paint fumes slightly longer than others are, but I've never had a piece of manufactured furniture stay so terrible for so long. I left the pieces fully outside for a day because I couldn't stand to have them in the house, then stacked the disassembled pieces near an open window for another week before deciding to put it together.
I joke that it smells like it's made of carcinogens, but several weeks later it remains seriously unpleasant to be near in an enclosed space for any length of time. I may still end up putting it in the garage for the winter.
Which is a shame, because it really is a charming design, and was simple to assemble.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OBXr Broke while assembling
Bought this over the "Mainstays" brand at WalMart because it seemed to be of higher quality... it really isn't. It's very flimsy and the wood split when installing because it is very brittle. Good luck putting it together without overtightening and splitting something. Also, don't freak out if you can't find the wingnut listed, it's on the cord already. Would recommend if it was a $39 lamp, not worth what I paid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by medkid excellent product
each segment of lamp structure fits easily together with minimal difficulty. some adjustment was needed to fit shade fabric into space for it at top of unit. tight fit. workings are of fine purpose and quality for cost of unit...would recommend this unit in family room or bedroom setting where not subjected to repeated movements or bumping into other furniture due to plastic construction.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NANJP Nice looking lamp, wish it worked
We were excited to find a lamp that doubled as a storage unit. It was very easy to put together. There are stickers on the wood shelves that were tough to remove (I didn't want to see them even if we installed the shelves facing down). Tip: use Goo-Gone. The vertical poles were not very high quality. We had one snap when screwing it together. It looks like other people had this issue so I don't think it was user-error. We got the whole thing assembled and found that the lighting fixutre didn't work. We tried a different light bulb but still nothing. Back to the store it goes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John Very nice lamp; has it been improved??
Not sure what the fuss is about the "quality." I watched these on other sites go for as high as $99! The one I got was sturdy (although the tower shouldn't have heavy objects only on top shelf), easy to assemble, and had no cracks, drips, or other flaws. Perhaps some were over tightening the spacing rods? Just tighten them a bit after they touch the shelf and you'll be fine. If you have thick carpet, it may be easy to knock over until it settles into pile or just put something heavy on bottom shelf.
The only thing I don't like is it wasn't bright enough for our application. I got an "Y" adapter at HD ($2.50) and have two 23w curly fry bulbs. I think it's a good value.
