I ordered a pair of these lamps for each side of the master bed. They look beautiful in our rustic home and bring a modern sophistication with them. The lighting is calming, which works well at the bedside, though I wouldn't use it to illuminate a large area, or an area where bright light is desired. I am a perfectionist so I was a little disappointed that there is a visible plastic piece (about 1/4") in the back/upper base where the electric cord connects between the wall attachment and the bulb, but it did take me a few weeks before I even noticed this, and it faces the wall so it's not obvious unless you are looking for it. I wasn't clear whether the base was metal or wood (it's described as walnut), but I was pleased to find out that it is in fact metal. Lastly, one of the 2 lamps had a slight deformity in the shade (flattened a bit on one side), but this is also not noticeable unless you get behind the lamp and look for it. I think with some creativity it could be properly reformed.
