Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki Whimsical and Wonderful
This lamp is quite beautiful and easily put together. I have included some pictures. It comes packaged very well protected and has very good directions. Don't worry about the parts it says to look for, they have already 'pre-assembled' most of the lamp for you! It takes a 3 way bulb.
The color is deep and rich and the gold and deep scarlet red shade with black base make it versatile for a number of rooms and a variety of background colors. The shade is nice and thick and sturdy with nice detail in the design and the base has some good weight to it. I think it is a very nice quality product that should last a long time!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYBob Beautiful and stylish, high capacity lamp (3 way 50-100-150 Watts)
This lamp is well made and very stylish with actual fabric cover. It was well-packaged and arrived in excellent condition through shipping. Assembly was simple and the unit has sufficient weight to be stable. The fixture is high capacity, labeled for 250 Watt maximum though the instructions are for a 50-100-150 Watt lamp. My wife prefers this light ("whimsical and romantic") compared to the desk light she had been using in her home office area so she took this lamp for her use. I will have to buy another one for the family room!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToddB Heavy, well built with quality materials and finish. Nice shade – NOT cheap.
This is a lot nicer than I expected. It’s made from solid (heavy) materials and even appears to have been hand painted (at least the gold accent). The paint has those faint burnished lines in it that, while subtle really add to the appearance. Because it’s heavy it sits firmly in place and doesn’t easily wobble.
It was well packaged and had no damage, at all. It took about two minutes to assemble. All you have to do is screw the body onto the base (the wire’s already threaded), squeeze the bulb tongs and insert them into the body and pop the shade on. It’s a 3-way switch, so you ideally want to use a 3-way bulb. I didn’t have one handy so I used an LED bulb. The shade is of a nice quality material that looks rich and is transparent to a degree.
As you can see from the photo it goes quite well with the primitive décor in our room and gives off a nice warm glow through the shade. If you’re looking for something other than the cheap, lightweight lights that are all too prevalent you will not be disappointed by this. I don’t have a single complaint about this light.
