I absolutely love the style of this lamp. I keep it on my desk at work and everyone always compliments it and for some reason has an urge to actually touch the lightbulb. Luckily for them it stays very cool to the touch LOL! The only issue I have with this lamp is that it is battery operated. The batteries will last about 2 weeks, with it being on for 8hrs per day, then they have to be replaced. Would be great if this could be plugged in!
