This is the original, timeless, classic design. Some may not like it because it's in every TV show, every design magazine out there. For some it will be too big, because it is truly gigantonormous. For some, it will be too pricey. Some can't stand the white marble.

Two tips - don't try to make it up on your own and make sure you find a source of the light bulbs. Other that, looks great, works well, and well made.
Great Lamp - had to modify it.
David from Boston, Ma
The lamp is great and is exactly what I expected. Be advised though, that the height of it is about 82. I had to modify it to cut it down to make it fit my apartment, which was a huge pain in the butt.
