Can you tell me where this lamp is made? I don't mean assembled, I mean manufactured...thank you. I'm looking for AMERICAN manufactured floor lamps. Please reply ASAP.

Unfortunately, Lite Source products are mostly manufactured and assembled overseas in China. We apologize for the inconvenience.

POOR INSTRUCTIONS; VERY DIFFICULT TO ASSEMBLE; NOT VERICAL
The shipment came directly from Lite Source in California (who gets it from China), and we assume that Arcadian was nothing more than an order taker. They were useless when it came to assembly issues and we contacted Lite Source directly.
Note the following:
The instructions for this lamp were badly written, incomplete and generic rather than specific to the product.
Packaging was tight but nothing was broken. It took almost 15 minutes just to carefully remove everything from the styrofoam mold and line it up for assembly without damaging any of the parts. All tools were included.
This lamp has four tiny, tiny allen wrench screws that hold the top part to the poles. Two were already in place and, we ultimately discovered, had to be removed and reinserted to get the top to fit. The screws actually have to be carefully placed onto the allen wrench and then fitted into the threads. Don't drop them onto a dark carpet! The instructions said nothing about these screws.
The final assembly steps require:
-removing double sided tape that holds the metal cover onto the lamp base (however the tape comes completely off when the warning lables that cover it are removed)
-fitting the cover onto the base (one try because of the double sided tape)
-turning the lamp upside down (without damaging the top part and bulbs) to fit the poles into the base
-adjusting the length of the poles by unscrewing the threaded part (Lite Source supplied this information by telephone - the instructions said nothing about this adjustment)
-using a wrench to tighten the bolts while balancing the upside down lamp.
Once assembled, the lamp seems to perform as advertised but the upright poles easily twist out of line, and the the top lamp is designed to tilt toward one side instead of being straight up.
Given the high risk of assembly damage and the rather strange appearance, we give this 2 stars.
