Works great! The tall lamp stays on for office lighting. The side, desk lamp is perfect when I need a little extra, direct lighting. It was missing the fastener that secures the floor lamp bowl, but with the light bulb in place, it's not going anywhere. Called to try and get it shipped but never got a reply. So far, no problem.
The light from this lamp is great. However, the pole (which is two separate pieces) does not line up well, so the lamp has a less than vertical (and very annoying) lean to it. Because the lean is so obvious, I wasn't able to use it in the living room as planned. It was too much trouble to send back so I'm using it in a guest room instead.
Great lamp . Has very heavy base. Appears just as picture. Outstanding price and assembly was very easy. I didn't give lamp five stars because you can't have both reading light and main one on at same time. I love the style and don't regret the purchase.
I use this lamp daily for knitting and reading and the like. The little side lamp really helps me see what I am doing, keeping mistakes at a minimum. I removed one star because they are lightweight enough to be a little tippy on our thick rug. The contemporary look and brushed nickel finish goes well with our other light fixtures. All in all, a good deal and money well spent.
