Purchased two sets for a total of 8 lamps because we are old! The older we get, the darker it seems in our home. I received these lamps in record time, and put them together with no trouble, I have issues with my hands and it was a breeze. I scattered these lamps all over my home and it made a huge difference in the way we see things, literally, now w need to paint!! HA! But, the lamps are nice, the shades are a little flimsy, but we can buy new shades as they wear out, the lamps are in great sturdy condition and easy to use and we love them.
