Great for the price
We bought 2 of these online and were not sure what to expect, but were just glad they were 1/2 the price of similar 'designer' style lamps at a home decor store.
I'll give the 'bad news' first - they aren't the highest quality - they are made of particle-board type wood, and if you look really closely, the bars don't all line up with the corners of the shelves. But let me say, this is a really minor thing, and unless you look close, you wouldn't think these are low-quality at all.
Now the good news - they are beautiful! They have a cool contemporary look, and add a lot to the room. With the shade, you get a soft glow, so they would make good 'mood lamps'. They are full-height floor lamps, and are much better than we expected for the price. If you can get over that they aren't high-end craftsmanship, you'll be very happy with these lamps.
We bought 2 and were impressed with how nice they were for the under-$80 price range, and we ended up buying a 3rd to use as a nightstand/lamp in a newly-decorated monochromatic bedroom.
I agree with the other reviewer that you have to make sure the shorter bars are at the top, this isn't obvious from the directions. It was easy to assemble, though!
Overall, I highly recommend these lamps, unless you have hundreds to spend and can get a similar one of higher quality from a boutique store.

Pull chain broke after 3 months/Has been fixed and is working perfect!
By Michael N. Weiss
My wife and and I love the look of this lamp, it looks beautiful, and the light is plenty bright for a small/medium size room. The only problem we had was the pull string broke after 3 months. If you check out Target's website, you'll see more reviews stating this. If you buy this, make sure you use a light switch or power strip to turn it on and off cause that pull chain is fragile. I have contacted the manufactuer twice about a replacement, but have been met with just a voice message box and no return calls so far. *9/16/09 update - I called again, got a lady named Anna just now, she said they would send a replacement top shelf with the socket and plug for free, I will change my review based on this experience, I will update again as soon as I have the part.
Part came in, works much better now, they've strengthened the pull chain and improved the design, I now love this lamp again. I had to hound the Adesso people to get my replacement part, but they did finally send it free of charge. I'm bumping it up 2 stars.

Modern lamp-thumbs up for the price
The price is right. It's a beautiful lamp. It reminded me of a Japanese lamp style because of the shape, rectangular box wood frame, and a contrasting white natural color shade. It provided soft, indirect light for the room. I have a small-medium sized living room and it just fitted in. It's easy to assemble. Im very pleased with the purchased.
