Not as expected
Just received this lamp. I'm wishing they just sent a picture of it, like the one online. First the brightly colored tower of the lamp is dark gold, just like the base, there is NO difference in color. Next, it came with a 5 foot cord. How is my client supposed to plug this lamp into the wall outlet & still place it on the table....electrician will have to rewire it. Well, I guess that is probably not a bad idea since the "cord" is dark brown....a nice clear gold cord would have been nice and 9 or 10 feet of it. The cord they sent was all twisted & stiff. The base of the lamp, which is all metal with VERY sharp edges, has no felt under the lamp. I'll make a trip to Michaels tomorrow & buy a piece of felt for the bottom & finish it for UTTERMOST. I don't want this shiny new lamp to scratch the new $3,500 table. And last is the lamp shade. It is not the color shown online, it is a light yellowish tan, it was supposed to be linen. It sure looked good online, looks nothing like the online picture. I should return it. THIS IS THE LAST UTTERMOST LAMP I WILL BUY. YES, THEY HAVE STYLE, BUT NO QUALITY. I was going to send a picture but the upload took too long. Maybe if I put a large spotlight on it, it will look like the picture.
