I chose this lamp for its clean modern design and its ability to produce a lot of light by accepting up to a 150W bulb. While it delivers on both these fronts, the quality is not what I would expect.
The base is essentially an unfinished weight disc (dumbbell plate) with a cover on top that doesn't entirely reach the floor leaving part of the disc exposed. The shade has a large visible seam and sits slightly canted as opposed to level with the floor. The switch is plastic and wiggles within its housing.
