I returned mine because there was a hole ripped in the paper when it arrived. Amazon paid for the shipping back and gave me a credit without a problem.
I purchased another Ikea lamp from Amazon at the same time:
That lamp is a completely different color and weight of paper! As an aside, that floor lamp is really attractive and does NOT look cheap like this one. Everyone loves it! I went to Ikea to buy 6 more for my whole house because they go with everything and they are so inexpensive. On Amazon, it's $34.98 + Prime shipping, but at Ikea they are only $19.99, HOWEVER this lamp is now discontinued. My local Ikea has 121 in stock, and then they are replacing it with an ugly lamp that costs $29.99 sheesh! So if you want the floor lamp for 20 bucks, you've gotta hurry before I buy them all. :)
Here's the point of my tangent: This lamp wasn't just a different color/made of different paper than the other Ikea lamp I bought, I found out that it also seems to be a different color/paper than the same lamp that's actually IN the Ikea. When I was there buying the floor lamps, low and behold, there was this little table lamp. See how it looks off-white in the picture? That's how it looks in the store, but what was shipped to me was a super-cheap-looking-stark-white, like the color of printer paper. And by the way, the Ikea carries a square desk/table lamp for $9.99 that matches the floor lamp in the above link.
I suggest either another lamp entirely, or the Orgel table lamp at your local Ikea which looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Ikea-10122-Orgel-Table-Lamp/dp/B001PJXFWK but costs 1/4 the price locally (9.99 + tax), or buy this lamp if you love it, but find another seller. I'm not sure you're getting an authentic Ikea lamp here. Maybe yes, maybe no???
