Customer Reviews


Excellent Bed Reading Light

from Loomis, CA – Verified Buyer

LED snake arm is excellent reading lamp for bed, plenty of light for those concerned about "enough light". Decorative, and easy install. Quality is good but it does not come at a bargain price. I did not check on the LED replacement availability due to long life of LED's (maybe about 50,000 hours), but probably a good idea to verify if it is a standard LED replacement or a special replacement? I just tried to unscrew the end thinking that would provide access to the bulb so I could put that in this review but it would not spin...I better check how the LED bulb replacement is handled so I don't break something! I recommend this for a bed reading light and I will be buying 3 more, one each for the family.

Perfect for Bedsides

from Sturgeon County, AB – Verified Buyer

With the two light options, it can be used to light the room or the directional lamp can be used for reading while someone else sleeps...very practical and stylish

Looks exactly as pictured

from Elkford, BC – Verified Buyer

I have seen lights for double the price and more at lighting stores that aren't near as nice. I was hesitant to order a light with a shade but the packing was excellent and no damage.

Beautiful sleek bedside lamps

from Menomonee Falls, WI – Verified Buyer

Easy to install. The reading lamp is brighter than I expected, but perfect for when I want to read and my husband wants to sleep. I believe other reviewers have mentioned this, but the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that the swing arm doesn't always look level when extended. Otherwise, I'm very pleased with the quality and design.
