This was purchased as a reading lamp for my elderly mother in law. The counter balance allows the lamp to move up and down with little effort. Her only complaint was that it was difficult to turn on and off.

I ordered two of these as reading lamps on either side of a couch. I didn't raise and lower them more than a few times a week and they both broke within 2-3 months. By that time, I had obviously thrown away the boxes so I didn't bother trying to send them back, but if you're thinking of buying this lamp, don't.
I am a Pottery Barn gal all the way but this lamp was within my price budget while there's were not. :(. I am so glad I bought it! It looks wonderful and very stylish. The lampshade is slightly rustic looking with a grainy, muslin finish that is hard to see in the photo. It adds just the right touch. All I. All, a very quality piece for a very reasonable price :)
The lamp is attractive, but the lampshade is very cheap and thin. I used the handle to lower the lamp a total of maybe 20 times during the time I owned it, and it broke this week. The top half of the unit screws into the lower half and apparently the metal grooves which line up to screw them together broke irreparably. It's going in the trash.
Needed a simple adjustable floor light for a guest room. The description was accurate and quality was what I had expected. The floor base has considerable amount of weight to it which holds the lamp in place as you adjust arm. The connecting screw joint of the arm stays tight once you've adjusted. Very satisfied with the purchase.
We bought two of these lamps for our daughter's family room. They are crisp and clean in design and offer flexibility with the adjustable feature and good bright light. They are heavy and sturdy enough for a room that gets a lot of use.
I purchased two of these lamps to go on the sides of a couch. I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I opened the boxes. The shades were carefully packaged and had no damage. The lamps were easy to assemble and are very sturdy. They are more substantial than I was expecting and they make a great impact in the room. The color of the shades really warm up the room when the lamps are on. Perfect!!!

I'm very happy with the lamp except it is hard to get it to stay in the position you want. It wants to tilt down some so the shade doesn't stay level.

This is a nice looking modern lamp but is very cheaply made. The components are fair to borderline poor quality. We actually purchased two of these lamps and the adjustable mechanism on one of the lamps broke immediately when we attempted to adjust the lamp's position. We still use the lamp - we just don't adjust it and keep it upright. Again is a nice looking lamp but in comparing quality to price, this lamp did not seem like a fantastic deal.

This lamp looks great. I use it in a straight, standing-up position. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the spot that it bends from is plastic. Difficult to get those 2 parts together and then when you want to bend it to read, sometimes it cannot hold the position. So - if you're going to use it to read, I'd go for a different lamp. However, if you just want a great looking floor lamp, this is a great buy. Looks much more expensive than it is.
Horrible wast. Arrived with flimsy shade dented in a couple spots. Easy to put together but large plastic screw popped off on first tighten. I should have sent it back but too much trouble. It is now not adjustable and I'll find another shade eventually.
Scratches were found on the base upon arrival. Bottom of base looked used with dust and dirt all over it. The stand also had some cosmetic flaws. Fortunately, Overstock has amazing customer service and I was taken care of in a very courteous and professional manner. Just experiencing their customer service and getting familiar with how the company views their buyers was pretty much worth the trouble of buying this terrible lamp.
