Beautiful lamp with some assembly and quality issues
Rino from Fort Washington, PA – Verified Buyer
The lamp didn't come with instructions but it looked simple enough to put it together. However, It took a lot longer than expected. The key is to put together the poles first then attach them to the base. Assembling it piece by piece will result in the poles not being angled in correctly. In fact, I couldn't put in the top half of the pole at all until I took it all apart again and assembled the poles first. There were some quality issues. The base had multiple shallow dents. It's not too noticeable unless one takes a closer look. Also, a couple of the pole pieces had dents on the edges which I thought may cause problems with assembly but didn't. I simply turned the pole so that the dents on the pole didn't show. In all and all, the lamp is unique and looks wonderful (from not too close a distance). My rating is actual 3 1/2 stars but since the rating system doesn't allow for half a star, I rounded up to four. It is a beautiful lamp after all.
Easier than i thoughht

Think i lucked out with the assembly because i noticed 2 things that made it a piece of cake. First of all when you lay out the base i noticed the 3 black cords are all different length. So i put the end pieces in according to that, i.e longest end piece with the longest black cord. That way the configurationangle of the three works out just as pictured. Next when trying to push the wire through the poles, i was having a bit of trouble with my big fingers until i noticed the metal threadconnectors at the end of each pole come out. So i took each one out as i was threading through the wire and then put it back after each piece. It was so so easy after that. All pieces arrived safely and looks just like picture. Worst part of whole experience was sweeping up the pesky pellets from the packing polystyrene :)
Its really cool
Ed from Brooklyn, NY
I really liked the concept of this lamp. I takes good planning to place this lamp in a place that will highlight its design and illumination. The lamp lights up my living room very well. Fantastic "candle" design. Despite the well packaging,the lamp glass covers (icicles) are very delicate, be careful handling them. You get an extra lamp, and icicle. It is not mentioned in the description, but the lamp has a small floor sliding switch that lets you dim the 3 halogen lamps from maximum power to darkness. Dimming is expected for halogen lamps. Its very cool when creating a laid-back atmosphere. The switch has an orange LED to make it easier to find it the dark. Though, it takes some time getting used to the floor switch. The assembly wasn't as easy as i would have hoped, but its worth the wait (Hence 4 stars). Just have patience. The hardest part is to get the electrical cables inside the tubes (which run the entire height of each tube). Do not assemble (screw in) the tubes together before you insert the cables and plug to the lamp sockets. Its easier this way. Assembly make take some ingenuity (Like using a hook+rope to insert the electrical cables in the tubes...your welcome). The construction is solid and of good quality. I think is very worth the price and the style this lamp adds to my living room. I consider it as art and not just as a lamp. I would definitely recommend it, but not too much as I wouldn't want everyone to have the same lamp as me. ;-)

This light is so beautiful. Very elegant looking and the dimmer just makes it all worth buying it! The description does not mention a dimmer, but it's there. It comes with 4 bulbs and 4 globes. We turned the globes around so it is all frosted, (as another reveiwer suggested) and like that look much better. We also bought the table lamp version of this light (after seeing this one) to go on the other side of the room for accent. So sleek and modern in our "basically" traditional room. I love the mix of both. My husband put it together with pretty much no problems ( until I walked in and wanted the angles different), but they do move around, so just delicately play around and I'm sure you'll get it the way you want. The way you can either light up the room, or just dim it to look like candle light is the most greatest opion. Buy it!!!

I bought 2 of these floor lamps to place on each side of my media console and to provide some much needed light in the living room! Assembly hint - i didn't read the directions before assembling, be sure to pay attention to the length of each electrical connection - that's your indicator for which final light fi×ture goes where! Assembling the 2nd light was a charm because I realized my boo boo! These are e×cptional, surpassed my e×pectations in every way - style, sturdy construction, very sophisticated styling and the lights dim - a surprise because i didn't realize that the lights dimmed when i made the purchase!
Nice, but a few quality issues
Erin from New York, NY – Verified Buyer
For the money, the lamp looks good from a distance and provides great ambient lighting with the dimmer. There are few issues with the quality, however.... 1) one of the frosted bulb covers doesn't quite fit into it's metal piece, leaving it sticking out more than the other two frosted covers. The part left sticking out is not frosted, so you can see the difference from the other two. 2) Of the two bulb covers that do fit, they are not very secure (as noted by other reviewers) and can easily be knocked out. 3) The actual bulb connection is very sensitive. Slight movements can cause individual bulbs to turn off. All in all, I'm pretty happy with it, but wish it didn't come with the flaws.
Terry from Wauwatosa, WI – Verified Buyer
We really love our new icicle lamp! We also have the table top lamp- and they both look awesome in our newly remodeled living room! The lamp came well packaged with diagram instructions which were pretty easy to follow- although having read previous reviews before purchasing, I pulled up the reviews and read tips from past reviews (which were even more helpful!) The only reason I don't rate this a 5 -- is because the location of the "on/off-dimmer switch" is at the bottom base of the lamp which for us is difficult to get to in the location that we need to set the lamp. Although----Overall -- love it! Very classy and modern!
Icicle Floor Lamp Review
mark from broadview heights, OH – Verified Buyer
This is just sooo cool! Turn down the dimmer, and the affect is really nice! Really accents the room nicely. The only issues are that 1) the Halogen lamps aren't bright enough to read by, 2) would be nice if the ON/OFF/dimmer switch was up on the icicle somewhere unobtrusive. To adjust the brightness, you have to adjust at the box on the cord. This is accent lighting only.
Annette from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer
I really like this lamp! It is my second one...first broke after having it for almost 10 years. Love the sleek, minimalist lines and it provides plenty of light for my loft space. I would definitely recommend! The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is that it was a bit difficult to assemble (I'm not very handy though).
Junk and poor customer service
Orchid Slayer from FL – Verified Buyer
Well, we'll see if this review gets posted as I wrote one for this a while ago that didn't. The item didn't go together well and doesn't look straight. Two of the three bulbs didn't work (you could see broken filaments). I wrote to Wayfair and they sent replacements. However, the old bulb gave a bright white light. These were a yellowish color and didn't fit very well at all into the fixture. Oh, and one of the two bulbs also had a broken filament. I wrote to Wayfair again and they said the bulbs were added as a courtesy and they wouldn't replace them. Unfortunately I threw away the box when I was told I would be getting replacement bulbs or I would have returned the whole thing. I got some bulbs at Amazon that matched and fit into the fixture. I am not happy with the crooked lamp and would never buy it again, but at least now it works. I am a new Wayfair customer but have spent about $2000 over the past couple of months. This will be my last purchase. Cons: poorly made
