I ordered 2 of these wall lamps. When they arrived one was scratched (on bronze square piece) and they other had some marks on it. The vendor agreed to send 2 more. I had pretty much the same situation with the second 2 and ended up keeping the best one from each set. Once it was hung I realized the finish was hidden by the shade and I probably didn't need to be so fussy. However another glitch, between the 4 lamps there were only 2 on/off switches. So, I love the lamps, they work well, but be prepared to do some exchanges to get a good one. The vendor was very pleasant and prompt handling the exchange.
Recommended - with limitations It can only take a fairly low wattage bulb, enough to read by, but is not very bright for illuminating a space Also, as another viewer mentioned, it only adjusts up and down, to you can't twist it to the side On the plus side, it mounts easily, has an attractive dark brown finish, and turns on easily with a simple twist of a well-size knob It' s sturdy and fills a need for us
Finally found someone able to help me install. As others have reported here, the metal was scratched, and, yes the HUGE lampshade helps block that view, but, in my case, the lampshade is seriously dented, which makes it less than attractive. Installation was an ordeal. It was kind of assumed you've already got a kind of mounting hardware in place and/or you are dealing with sheet rock or plasterboard, so we had to improvise. There are now so many holes in my wall hidden by the plate I guess I will have to live with it and try to find some kind of replacement shade.
They're out of these lamps now, but if they had more, I'd buy loads more for a small hotel. This is a good looking, classic lamp for a room without enough room to have large night stands with lamps on them. They look and feel high-end, and overall, I'm really pleased.
I'm normally pretty good at assembling stuff, but this had incomplete directions and some of the screws were not the right size, so it took longer than is should have. Also- the photo/ title leads you to believe that these lamps swivel from side to side, but they only swivel up and down, which means we had to put them directly over our bed, rather than to the side as we had planned.
Looking for a small but effective wall lamp to hang next to a chair. It could not have a swing arm. This little lamp has a short arm for forward adjustment so that's fine. Simple style. The shade is just functional and goes well with the lamp. I added a few embellishments to the shade to give it more character.
The only reason why I wouldn't be so quick to recommend this item is that the information on this item is misleading. i thought the arm also swings right and left which is why i purchased this lamp. Well it doesn't, the only thing that swings if you dont tight the screw very tight is the actual lamp arm. Well either the lamp points to you or you can have it point to the wall. I purchased two of these so I did use one, but I think will resell the second one on ebay. Do note thought that the lamp works great for what it offers. I recommend changing the shade since the bottom wrap of the fabric on this lamp is not clued in a straight line.
Received item it good condition . Was going to have a friend hang the light. When unpackaged light and was addressing where the light would fit best it was detected that the plug is not attached to the cord. Was going to return but a friend will try and "figure out " assembly. Will post again when determine how easy/difficult assembly and installation ended up to be on this product/
