Love the look of these table lamps! There is a little assembly required but nothing more than expected. I did have issues with a decorative piece on the hardware that secures the lampshade to the post. The decorative clear "ball" that sits on top fell off each lamp. The lamp was still able to be assembled correctly, but I ended up having to superglue the clear ball to ensure a finished look. It took all of a few seconds and looks great. I didn't bother reaching out to the company for a refund or replacement because it was such an easy fix. Other than that, the lamps look and work great! They are sturdy and were just what I was looking for!
