I thought this lamp was going to work out really well for my home, but there were a few things with it that just didn't work out. One, the shade. It's made of paper and feels rather thin. The color it illuminates with wasn't all that warm either. Second, the pull cord. It's a rather ingenious idea (pulling the power cord to turn on/off) but at least on mine it didn't work half the time. You'd pull, then pull again, and sometimes even more times, and then it would 'click' on. It's clever, but the execution of it felt flimsy. Considering the retail price I was expecting much better quality construction, but that simply wasn't the case.
