I ordered this lamp on Tuesday, and it arrived at my residence in Canada on Friday. The packing job was excellent. There was no damage whatsoever, and I liked that the packing chips were plant-based, and not styrofoam, so that all packaging material was recyclable. Assembly and set-up was quick and easy, as instructions were well-written. The lamp looks beautiful on my antique table, and the light produced, though not recommended as illumination for reading a book, is warm and inviting. I'm well impressed by Modern Lantern in all respects!
