This is a great looking lamp because of its simple design and useful size. Its construction seems solid, the shelves are great for light books, knickknacks, or picture frames, and the chargers are a great benefit. The shade itself is very sturdy and the lamp is very easy to assemble. The plastic clips that help tuck the power cord away make for a neat looking product overall. While the product's price seems a bit inflated (you're paying more for the design, white color, and chargers), it is still a good value when considering it's being shipped to you in two days. It should also be noted that because of the thickness of the lamp shade (a good thing in general), you need to use a brighter/more powerful bulb if you intend on using it for reading, computing, etc. A 60W equivalent (13 or 14W) CFL is way too dim. Even a 100W equivalent (23W) seemed dim in this lamp. You must keep in mind that this lamp is intended for mood/atmospheric lighting and the shade will diffuse the light. Those that have mentioned using color changing LEDs have the right idea in mind. Those looking to use this for reading may need to use halogen bulbs or something very bright (within the wattage rating for the lamp).
