Beautiful Aesthetically and a Breeze to Assemble!
I love this lamp! In addition to its aesthetics physically and in terms of the light it emanates, I love the fact that I was able to assemble the lamp myself. I was quite worried about that, but the instructions and packaging made it a breeze. The lamp is even more lovely in person. I had not seen it anywhere before spotting it on ylighting's website. Thanks for a wonderful addition to our home!
