This Montclair 59-inch floor lamp comes in four sections that simply screw together. It has two longer dark-brown resin sections that looked like wood at first. And three circular marble pieces are at the base, middle, and top. The smaller photo shows a close-up of one of the marble sections, but mine is a lighter brown color than the photo. I placed the lamp in my living room and it brightly illuminates a diagonal half of the room really well, perfect for reading or working at a desk or computer. I use it for both: as my reading lamp and for working with my wireless keyboard when I am using my TV as my monitor. The floor lamp isn't like a ceiling light that spreads evenly throughout the room, so I have a small desk lamp sitting on my desk in the other diagonal half of the living room. However, it is not a typical Wal-Mart floor lamp since it is much more study and stylish. I especially like the little marble sections (they match the top of my desk that sort of looks like marble as well). It takes one 3-way light bulb. This means that the floor lamp allows three levels of brightness. You use the main switch at the top of the lamp to switch between the three levels. I found cheap and compatible light bulbs at a local Ace Hardware store. You can use a 50/100/150 watt incandescent bulb. This wattage bulb allows 615/1540/2155 lumens depending on the level of brightness you choose (by turning parts of the light bulb on or off). You can also use a 16/25/32 watt CFL bulb. The package indicates that the bulb is a replacement for the 50/100/150 bulb. This wattage bulb has 600/1600/2150 lumens. I chose the CFL light, but I might get an incandescent bulb to compare and see whether I can get the lamp to put out a bit more light on the highest setting. The light looks like a piece of furniture itself and has a thick base. I can only put my hand around a few grooved spots. It was easy and quick to put together for the most part. Some of the sections were awkward to screw together, but once together, it looks very sturdy and has a classical-looking design. Highly recommended!

the lamp is simply beautiful, wish it was just a little taller. It was a little difficult placing all the crystals on it and initially I had an issue figuring out what 60 watt incandescent lights fit, But once I got it all together I was definitely satisfied, I'm sure it will be the topic of many discussions once my family and friends see it.

We bought two of these floor lamps as side lamps to our stainless steel bed headboard. They are a perfect compliment. The lamps were easy to assemble. The lamps have two bulbs independently switched, we are using a combination of 13-watt and 18-watt CFL bulbs (60-watt and 100-watt incandescent equivalents), this makes perfect "3-way lighting", 60-100-160 watt equivalent. We purchased other floor lamps that were also "good", but no where near to the quality of these lamps. The shades are also "double silk" quality, and the power cord is clear with silver metal wires to match the stainless steel appearance. The bases are heavy and the lamps are very stable.

I purchased both the Ramone floor and table lamps - they look great on the site with the detail in the post and shade top but you can't see the detail in the shade - it's really beautiful. The gold stitching on the red silk is beautiful. There is also a lovely gold accenting on the lamp post.The lamps also have three level lighting(which can't be accessed with fluorescent bulbs but if you have any contraband incandescent - it's worth the rule breaking to use them on these lamps! You can't go wrong with the Ramone lamp - seriously, buy it. You will love it!

On the site, the shade looks beige. But, in person it is silver. No matter, it works together beautifully. I find it to be a very stunning lamp. As another person wrote, it looks like a work of art. The top is a bit shaky, but it is not a problem. It says that it has a Floor On/Off push button, It does not. Site says to use a 40-watt incandescent bulb. It actually uses a 3 way 30-70-100 bulb. I am very happy with this purchase. I always look for the unusual, no matter what it is. I don't want to walk into someone else's home and find my decor.

The style was exactly what I wanted. I was really happy to find a lamp that had pull chains as arthritis in my hands makes using twist-type switches very difficult. And it uses two 100 bulbs! I prefer the incandescent bulbs and like lots of reading light. Whee--this one has it!!! I was also very pleased to find the color of both shade and lamp to be as described in the ad. The only negative aspects of my Davies Floor Lamp were (1) the fact that it tilted just a bit. I had to readjust it by standing on the base and pushing the pole ever so gently until it was upright. I measured this by aligning it with a window frame. (2) The decorative top screw which holds the shade in place causes the shade to become lopsided of screwed down securely. But if not, the shade tends to wobble a bit when bumped. Still, I'm very happy with the lamp and would recommend it to anyone else.

This lamp is a stylish, three-way piece which requires no tools and only a few minutes to assemble. It does not come with the incandescent 100 watt 3-way bulb or the reading light bulb. I am pleased with my purchase.

Lamp was heavy, easy to setup but important information was not in the description. There are no knobs on the lamp whatsoever and both lights are controlled by one foot pedal. On the pedal is a push button for the halogen lamp (on/off only) and there is a slide on the pedal which acts as a dimming switch for the top lamp which only accepts incandescent bulbs, not the CFLs. Overall a very attractive lamp that was easy to setup. Sturdy base and dimming option is a huge bonus.

i think it is a quality product if a daylight spectrum is really what you want. maybe i should have known this but "day light" is really not always what works. at night i find the lamp too subtle and with a very small scope so it is of very limited use. i have used it as light while working on my watercolor paintings and it was not any better than my 100 watt incandescent light. i love the 27 watt usage, that is a plus but its illumination does not substitute for the high wattage bulb.

I am really happy with the lamp however I did not know it needs to be screwed into the wall which my landlord is not going to like. The base is marble and VERY heavy. It took me longer to put this lamp together than it did a bed frame. The directions were terrible. It takes small round bulbs which I doubt are those energy saving ones but they do supply you w/ the 4 you need. Also does not say that you can sort of postiion and manueuiver the arches. Again, I am very happy with it but wish I knew 2 people are needed to put it together and that it needs to be anchored into a wall. I have it lodged under the couch so it should not fall over as I can not put an anchor in my wall. I love that it has a dimmer control. Well worth the price. Also it is very tall so not good for low ceilings.

This lamp features a 3-way switch for use with a 3-way bulb. It comes with a 3-way CFL bulb, but I used a 3-way LED bulb instead. Problem is, in either case, you can see the top of the bulb (0.5" - 1") peeking over the rim of the glass bowl when you are standing up. (I am 5' 10" - maybe this is not a problem if you're shorter; you can't see it when you're sitting down). The CFL bulb supplied is actually taller than the LED bulb. I haven't measured a 3-way incandescent bulb, but they look to be about the same height as the CFL Bulb. So, if this is a problem for you, look for a torchiere having a bowl deep enough to hide the bulb that you intend to use. If this is not a problem for you, then this is a good lamp for the $. Assembly of the lamp takes about 5 min. and is effortless. The packaging uses the type of Styrofoam pellets that are only loosely bonded together, so recommend you unpack it outdoors if no wind, or in the garage.The base is very heavy, as it should be, the parts fit together well, and the finish of the SS material is attractive. Except for its height, the bowl is a desirably heavy, internally frosted glass and produces an attractive uniform side and downward light.
Lighting provides illumination for tasks and creates a range of moods, from cheerful to romantic. The three basic types of lighting include task, accent and general. The most common bulb types used in home lighting fixtures include compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), fluorescent, halogen, incandescent and light-emitting diode (LED).
Light fixtures are not the only concern when it comes to lighting design. It's also important to consider which types of light bulbs to use in the different fixtures throughout your home. The look and feel of your home can be drastically improved with the right light bulbs. From incandescent to fluorescent, get the facts about light bulb types so you can light your home the way you want.
Every task needs the right lighting. Whether you are finishing a needlepoint project or the latest bestseller, a craft lamp or book light can help you see what you are doing. If you are shopping for task lighting, think about how you plan to use it, and remember that some types of lights can do double duty.
