The reviews of the floor lamp are very unkind, in particular to the quality of its material and difficult assembly due to a poorly made design. With an original price of $137, I find it unacceptable to have such problems. I'd really like to purchase this given better assurance of what I'll be getting for my money, so I'd like to know what response do you have to the negative reviews? Thank you.
We've had this desk/lamp combo for a couple years now and it's really held up well. My husband uses it as his reading lamp in the corner of our bedroom. The rack has proven to be very convenient for placing his reading material so that it's readily available. We put in a three way bulb so that he has options in brightness. It was relatively easy to put together, but I'm pretty handy at that stuff. I would suggest having two people to put it together due to the angles in the leg placement....

Not disappointed. Happy with the purchaseRead More
The on/off switch broke first time we turned it on, one of the slates cracked during assembly and I suggest no one buy this unit.Read More
the assembly was a horrible experience. The "rod" dividers did NOT align to the pre-drilled holes. The holes where uneven in depth. The biggest problem was the bolts holding the legs together. They de-threaded very easily, the provided Allen wrench was useless. I had to buy another one at XXX but that didn't work well either as the bolts did not thread easily into the provided holes and became stripped. It took me FOREVER to get those suckers aligned properly and then the bolts didn't work. You also need to keep the rods into the ill-fitting holes. I worked on this for 2 hours and set it aside. I came back the next day and it still didn't work. One bolt de-threaded, a screw did the same and I just put it BACK in the box and sent it back. The ONLY plus were the well labeled parts and instructions. The quality and assembly fell flat on it's face!Read More
Unpacked the table and found the top was cracked on the corner it looks like someone attempted a repair on it. Ordered replacement top easily through online customer service. Decided to put it together and just replace the top when it arrived. Found a 2nd piece missing a welded tab, found a table leg with a mis-drilled hole. There was also 1 washer missing - decided it wasn't worth it and returned the whole thing. Not a good quality table at least not the one I got shipped.Read More
This piece is very poorly made. The metal welds do not hold together even during assembly and pre-drilled holes do not align. I will have to re-drill the holes to make this piece work at all. One weld has already broken without much force. After many days of trying to get the holes to align by adjusting the other bolts, I've given up. The shade is a really bad configuration. They've made it flat by using bars to extend it once assembled. The fabric is really poor quality, reminiscent of old underwear . Will not send this back since "O" will most likely charge a restocking fee despite the defective product as well as return shipping. Don't purchase this unless it drops below $$% - it's not worth it even for the MDF & lamp kit.Read More
Assembly was time intensive and difficult. My husband was exhausted after finally getting it put together. One of the parts was damaged. Why does this keep happening especially on products from China???!!! Despite this, the piece looks nice and is functional.Read More
The magazine rack floor lamp is a perfect fit beside my husband's recliner. I didn't have room for a floor lamp and a side table, so it was perfect!Read More
It's a nice lamp, can read at it and also serves as end table.Read More
The product was difficult to assemble and one part was broken. Thought of sending it back many times while trying to assemble it. It took two people to assemble a simple table lamp.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello kevooo10, we have sold several hundred of these lamps and have a very low percentage of returns. Of those we have sold, we only have 14 reviews. Over half of the reviews give it a 4 star and above rating. Also consider that everyone does not have the same mechanical ability, and it is not going to be the same quality as an expensive lamp. We hope this helps and thank you for shopping with us.
How many inches from the floor is the table? Thank you.
Hello thanks for the great question! From the table top to the floor that would be 20".
