Works well outside.
This was a gift and I have to say it is the perfect accent for any patio or outdoor area. It has some weight to it so it will not blow over in the wind. I think it would also look good indoors on a fireplace mantle or bookcase. I highly recommend this lamp.
I had purchased something similar from another company which the product was quite more expensive. Considering the lamp will be outside, the quality/price is great.
