Attractive and functional lamp

from Bellevue, WA – Verified Buyer

I have been very happy with this lamp, I use it next to my bed for reading and working on my laptop. I am not a bright light person, so this fits my needs perfectly. The small halogen (I think it is halogen) lamp gives ample light for reading and has two intensities. The top light adds additional (incandescent) lighting, but it's not a lamp that will brightly light up a whole room if that's what you're looking for. The base is sturdy and I've never had a problem with with it tipping. It's also a very attractive lamp.

Good and Bad

from United States – Verified Buyer

The lamp is attractive and stylish. Works as promised. And overall a good value for the price. But my one complaint would be that the packaging is horrible. I had styrofoam pellets everywhere and I was covered in them, just from pulling the packaging out of the box. Secondly, while it is easy to put together, that is fortunate, because the instructions are fairly useless. I'm glad I bought it, but was cursing it while putting it together.

Great design and function!

from Saint Helena, CA – Verified Buyer

all details are carefully designed... need your full attention to assembly... nice touch the silver color electric cord, all over I'm delighted to have it in my center of my living room. It is functional for both ways!

Good lamp.

from CA – Verified Buyer

The lamp has been good, but the only downfall with this lamp (all torchiere lamps I've noticed) it's very hard to put the light bulbs in. The recepticles are not good quality, but the rest of the lamp is.

Nice torchiere

from Garland, TX – Verified Buyer

We put 2 60W LED bulbs in this and it gives ample light for a medium sized living room. The finish and appearance are very good and I would have given 5 stars except the light is a little rickety. We have it in a corner where it won't get bumped. The reading light is useless to us.

Beautiful torchiere

from Southampton, NY – Verified Buyer

Beautiful lamp. Perfectly true to pictures. Easy, though a bit tedious to assemble. I would recommend it.

Son loves this lamp

from Geneseo, IL – Verified Buyer

Just purchased this and had it shipped to our son. He loves it -- says the finish is wonderfully done -- no flaws that he could find, and he is as picky as his mother lol. I liked the reading light aspect -- two lamps in one yet not huge so works well in big city studio apartment. The contemporary style is very attractive as well.
