The size is just right for a small area, the base is sturdy enough to keep it from tipping The style is classic yet contemporary. Unfortunately as soon as I assembled and plugged it in it shorted out. Now it works sometimes and many times does not. Also, the touch feature to turn the light on and off is nice but not practicle as it's placed at the top of the lamp canister making it not possible to adjust the brightness while seated. It's being returned.
