Anchored by a g...lossy chrome base and center pole with a brushed-nickel finish, the floor lamp features solid crystal globe accents, which rise in succession from large to small to cast jewel-like ambience throughout the home. Furthermore, matching chrome "spacers" rest between each globe to a towering effect, with a smoothly rounded finial topping everything off in perfect harmony. Gently diffused by a crisp, drum-style white linen shade, the unit glows with soft light from a 40-watt bulb (not included) that casts plenty of illumination for reading, studying, or conversing over drinks in the living room or dining room.
