Unboxing this lamp was so fun because the rattan shade is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen and the base is a gorgeous heavy duty vintage brass. Even prettier than I imagined! Setup was pretty minimal, just had to connect the three small tripod legs to the base and connect the shade. Unfortunately one of the legs had a stripped connection and it’s barely hanging on and very wobbly. Additionally, the rattan shade doesn’t screw on anywhere. It has a hole to slide it onto the lamp, but it doesn’t match the size of the lamp (even remotely) and there is no screw reinforcement to hold it in place. Again, it’s kind of just hanging there wobbly (the lightbulb seems to keep it in place slightly, but still wobbly) and seems like the shade and base were made by different manufacturers. I can’t tell you how much of a statement peice this is in my room (it’s so beautiful!) and since the other legs are strong and the rattan shade is so unique (and it’s just sitting on my nightstand- rather than a floor lamp that *needs* to be a bit sturdier), I’ve decided to keep it, but I’m definitely disappointed considering the money spent (more than I've ever spent on a lamp). I would probably buy again despite these issues because I love it, but please be advised if you need something sturdy/well made.
