I was a bit dubious after purchasing this, by initial plan was to buy a floor lamp to light up the corner of my room, being a single chap living alone I couldn't find anything that fitted the bill. My initial impressions upon receiving were that it was a little smaller than I expected, plywood and generally of disappointment, I decided to leave it lying on the floor, the patterns that it casts on the walls and generally the atmosphere that it gives the room have been a talking point for everybody that has visited my house since I've had it, I've never known [...] to generate so much interest !!!
One piece of advice, don't use energy saver light bulbs as the length stops shadows being cast, using low output halogen bulbs increases the shadows and the experiance
