This lamp is exactly as described. It’s a very good quality metal and the hinged neck holds up very well. The colors are very pretty and some have a rainbowish type of effect which has a base color and a ring of a different color along the edges. Close up it is very colorful and farther away it covers a large area. The remote is a great feature added on and has a couple buttons to adjust the brightness along with color changes and lighting modes. For picture and selfie takers, you can really create a lot of different effects with the lamp.
