This lamp comes completely assembled, is of high quality, sturdy, and looks fabulous on my desk! It has a built-in LED touch-sensitive light with dimming capabilities. I love how it is adjustable and how the brass finish gives it a nice shade of gold! My only complaint was when turned off the power button emits a bright blue light. However, upon recently reading the description of this lamp, it seems the manufacturer has changed the bright blue light to one of a soft yellow. I like the idea of the power button being lit up when off, so you don’t have to search in the dark but since this lamp is my bedroom the light was distracting at night.
