I usually wait for reviews on a product before ordering, but I went ahead and ordered this lamp on a whim.
It's a pretty sharp looking lamp. Contemporary and sturdy looking chrome.
It's pretty easy to assemble, except for the screwing together of the rods. Somehow I had trouble getting the rods to screw properly and in a straight line. The shade is not white, as depicted. It is actually off-white, cream colored which I prefer anyway.
The issue I had with this lamp is the base not being heavy enough to support the lamp.
When adjusting the rods, I noticed the base shaking, as if the lamp was about to keel over. :-/
Hopefully this wont be an issue.

Yesterday i unpacked, assembled and positioned the lamp in the perfect spot in my living room. It looked great and I was satisfied. Today I went to turn on the lamp and it snapped in two; such a disappointment.

Poorly designed lamp. It was fine for a couple of months. However, the bottom part will not support the upper part for long. You will be readjusting every other week to the point to where you will find it on the floor snapped in two and completely irrepairable.
This lamp works well in our living room, but it is not a high quality lamp. It is not easy to adjust the angle and it doesn't go up as high as I'd like, but it is sturdy and does not tip over which is good.
This lamp is a wonderful, modern lamp. The shade is definitely ivory/off-white and not white. Especially when lit up, it is almost yellow. It still works and looks nice in our living room. It would only be better if it really was white.
I chose this lamp for a small office with no interior light early in the morning. I was a bit worried about whether it would be too big, but it fits perfectly. It is made with good quality materials; the diffuser makes it perfect for positioning just over where I sit and does not interfere with the computer screen. The only drawbacks are that the screwdriver doesn't fit the screws...thankfully I always have one with me so this was not too rough to overcome. The shanks on the wing nuts that secure the angles of the pole are too short and there is no forgiveness. Loosening them to adjust the angle inevitably ended up with the wing nut falling to the floor, leaving me stuck standing on an office chair, trying to keep the whole thing from crashing down. Being a small woman, I did need to call a litigator to help me put it together...not because he's a lawyer but because he's tall enough for leverage so the whole thing doesn't fall apart during assembly. Thankfully he was in his office and could hear me yelling for help. If the screws were longer, it would be easier to adjust without losing the darned wing nut on the floor. Also, the angles that are possible are limited because of the design of the pivots. I made it work, but barely. Having overcome the issues, with the lamp in place, it's just the right fit and just the right lamp for that space. Getting it there, however did require some swearing. Another reason a litigator is the right person to help put it together. They are brilliantly profane!
How far down will this lamp adjust?
I can see the staff from the base does not bend, but does the second staff adjust at the main stem as well as in the middle?oleanover on Jan 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question oleanover. Each stem (3) can bend to the lowest point, so that the bottom of the shade is 22 inches off the floor. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 15, 2014
Limited. Both joints are adjustable, but neither provides as much range as I would have preferred. It's a beautiful lamp, though!bissie86 on Jan 19, 2014
