I am using this for a desk lamp. I have had it 2 years, heavy use, and i have yet to change bulbs. It is stylish, sturdy and the light is soft but still bright enough to work by. It is a little taller than standard desk lamps and I like that because the desk feel more spacious. I honestly can't think of anything that would be a con for this lamp other than that the design hides nothing so you'll want to stay on top of dusting!
I purchased this for my son's apartment and had been unsure when I unboxed it. It seemed 'big'. However, as soon as I placed them on each side of his queen size bed, it all fell into place. It's a great look against his reclaimed wood night table and bed. Came packaged really well too!
I bought this lamp for my son's room and love it. We just bought him furniture that has a rustic industrial look, and this lamp looks great to finish the look with the rest of his decor. It does produce enough light for a bedside but does not offer an abundance of light, but love the look and quality for the price I paid.
I saw reviews about the quality of these lamps but went ahead with the purchase anyway because I LOVE the style. I can't really complain TOO much about the sturdiness, but I absolutely understand why other reviews did... I just tightened everything as much as I could and they seem to be fine. The lamp shades craftsmanship is a bit lacking in the sense that the pieces of metal strips are crooked in some spots and not completely symmetrical. I LOVE the lightbulbs that come with it. I saw a review that they didn't last long before burning out and one that said they arrived broken. Mine are still burning just fine and all arrived in one piece. I have a very tall headboard and am using one of these lamps on each nightstand and I couldn't be happier with the look these give my bedroom. If you are looking for a different kind of look for lamps, these are what you need. Everyone who comes to my place comments on how much they love them. They were worth the compliments alone :p
These lamps are so awesome and the look is so industrial. I love to mix industrial with modern and classic lines so these went great in the bedroom. They are large and come w the bulbs which is a huge plus. I gave it good quality because one of the shades doesn't tighten all the way but it still looks awesome
LOVE this lamp. I bought 2 for my living room and NO ONE who sees them doesn't remark how cool they are. If you like your lamps to basically reproduce the sun in your room, this isn't the lamp for you. The bulbs are somewhat dim since they're a reproduction of the old style bulbs. But I personally hate too bright a room anyway. These lamps are awesome.
I was pretty excited about the aesthetic that this lamp was going to add to my family room, and I have to say that it really has done the job. I do have to mention, however, that the quality is not the greatest. The materials are sturdy, but the construction was lacking. The threads that hold the lamp together were all pretty much stripped, so it wobbled like crazy. We ended up getting some epoxy (a common theme to some things I've purchased on here) and let it cure. That fixed the issue. I was going to give this lamp 3 stars, but it looks so darn cool. When I turn this lamp on, people always remark at how cool it looks. The Edison style light bulbs really complete the look.
