Beautiful with minor flaws.
on December 27, 2010
I just finished putting together 2 of these lamps for my living room. The setup couldn't be easier- just screw the lamp socket and the three lamp pole pieces together to the base. Then slide the lampshade on and secure it with the large washer that screws on to the socket. The lamp shade is silver fabric with ornate circles and half circles surrounding the shade. There is an opaque backing behind the ornate circles that diffuses the light. This lamp calls for a 3 way maximum 150 watt light bulb and the light switch is located on the light socket.
The only issue I had was that the outside of one of the light shades had a few dirt spots and scratches -despite being wrapped in plastic. A wet washcloth took care of most of the dirt spots and luckily for me, the scratches on the shade are not terribly visible.
Oh and the only graphite accent I can see is the small cube at the base of the lamp.
The lamps are beautiful and understated- perfect for a more contemporary living space.
