Rated 5 out of 5Â by anthropologieprof Forest creature on my desk
This base is adorable in its quirkiness, earthiness and tasteful simplicity of forms. I love trees and forest creatures, and this lamp base brings the spirit of the forest to my home. It doesnâ€™t take much space on my desk (compared to a more bulky base I have been using), which unexpectedly gave more breathing room to my working space. The design is beautiful and the quality is excellent. The only possible con is that there is no protective layer at the bottom of the legs. This is not an issue for me, but if you want to use this base on a delicate surface you may want to attach felt pads (should be an easy fix) to avoid scratches on your desk. I use this base with a 17" diameter, 11" high shade (from Pottery Barn), which is larger than the one recommended in the description, but it fits perfectly. This creature almost makes me want to talk to it and feed it!

Trees are supposed to be thicker at the base, but this tree lamp is basically shaped like a baseball bat. The skinny lower trunk vs. the thick upper trunk at the top just seemed off-putting to me in person. It looked awkward on my side table.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Lanimaia Love the style, but hate the quality
I love the thought of a cute tree branch lamp, but for the lamp base alone, I expected a better quality. As soon as I got it, I paid the 5 dollar shipping to send it back. Huge disappointment.
