I was actually looking for a different lamp when I happened upon this one at a local Walmart. I have mission style furniture and had looked on-line for a floor lamp with the mica shade but they were really expensive and had just decided to get a different kind. Luckily none of the Walmarts I went to had the one I was looking for in stock. When I saw this one I knew it would look great with my furniture and they only had one in the store, so I decided to try it knowing I could take it back if I didn't like it after I got it home. The lamp gives off a real soothing amber glow and the faux mica shade is beautiful with the light shining through. It uses a 3-way bulb which is great so you can adjust the brightness you want. I would recommend this lamp especially for the price and it was super simple to put together and took about 5 minutes.
