A very ugly lampshade,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adesso Symphony Floor Lamp, Satin Steel (Tools & Home Improvement)The picture on amazon.com made the lamp look impressive, and the good number of 5-star reviews made me order the product right away. I was royally disappointed when I received it. The floor stand was sturdy enough, and while the lampshade looked somewhat flimsy, I assembled the whole thing pretty quickly. There were two main problems:
1) The lampshade is elliptical, so unless you are looking at it straight on (as in the picture on amazon.com), the lack of symmetry really stands out and makes the lampshade look ugly.
2) The inside is white and the outside is a very dark black. Once the light is turned on, very little light passes through the shade, so the contrast of the inside to outside is really high and this makes the lamp look very cheap (and uglier still).
I promptly disassembled it and returned the lamp back. I'm heading to a local store to actually look at one before buying.
