Foscarini Gregg Table Lamp
Clunky black cord!
LoveModern from Wakefield, RI– Verified Buyer
This light was purchased for ambient light on a very narrow glass table. Looked great in the photos. When it arrived, we were dismayed to see that the white globe comes with a thick black cord, not visible in any of the photos of the fixture. It looked terrible. Fortunately, my husband was able to DIY a new clear cord which looks far better. It would have been nice to know up front, especially at this price point.
Ugly black wire and plug not in photos!
Disappointed from Rhode Island
Purchased this as an ambient light source for a narrow console. Looked great in photos. When light arrived was shocked to see the sweet little white globe is attached to a very thick black electric cord??!! Why not use white to coordinate with the fixture, or, even better, transparent wire? This is Foscarini, which is why one pays [$] for a tiny little light globe. Expected better from them. Note, the big black wire does not appear in any of the photos of this fixture. Oops, surprise!!
The Foscarini keynote is research, into forms and materials, as well as ideas. Established in 1981 in Venice, Foscarini started out by exploring the opportunities offered by Murano glass. The management assures brand identity and coherence by careful conservation of its Murano heritage, whilst being ever ready to consider new objectives and to exercise its rare capacity for talent scouting.
The company works with both established designers who've created new trends and with younger, emerging exponents of alternative styles and approaches. This makes for a highly original catalogue and one of the most varied in the sector. Over the years, the range of materials used has expanded to include satin-finished glass, polyethylene, wood and aluminium, as well as patented materials such as an exclusive textured glass-tissue and carbone fibre composite or Kevlar R.
