Attractive and functional lamp
Danielle 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
April L 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.

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.
George 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.
Great design and function!
Judith 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!
Son loves this lamp
Diane M 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.
Rosaria from Southampton, NY – Verified Buyer
Beautiful lamp. Perfectly true to pictures. Easy, though a bit tedious to assemble. I would recommend it.
Frederick from California, MD – Verified Buyer
Great lamp and not to hard to put together. The only problem was the shade was cracked.
Joseph from Little River, SC – Verified Buyer
Solid, well constructed. Really like the dimmable halogen reading lamp.
Maria Smith from Boise, ID
Very nice. The photograph gives a true picture of the lamp. I use it nearly all the time and find it just right for my needs.
