I like this little lamp quite a bit. It throws a decent amount of light with a 40 watt bulb, enough to light up a small dark space, though not enough to really do any reading by. It's almost entirely metal, and has a nice weight. I just got this a couple days ago, so no comment on the durability of the finish, though it's quite even and free of blemishes.
A couple caveats and small gripes. The inline switch is about 18" down the cord from the lamp itself, which I feel is a little too far. The body of the lamp gets quite warm. Not quite too hot to handle, but close. I wouldn't use it on any surface that has a heat sensitive finish. I imagine using a G9 LED bulb would remedy this. A dimmer switch would have been appreciated, especially at this price. That's not to say you won't get your money's worth. The construction feels like it will last a long, long time.

Nice, robust little lamp. Doesn't throw a ton of light but makes a great accent. It does get quite warm, and at the price a dimmer would have been a nice touch. My only real complaint is that the switch is about 18" down the cord from the lamp. A little far, but manageable.
