This is a great wall lamp! I bought 2 for our bedroom and really love them. I am an advocate of wall lamps rather than lamps sitting on the bedside table. These are sturdy, they hang straight when completely extended, and the cord cover is attractive too. Beautiful, beautiful lamps. Very good value for the money. I would buy these again without hesitation.
We needed a small wall light and this was the style that we were looking for.. The price was good and the lamp arrived in a timely fashion. It looks nice on the wall. But, the wiring was a bit cheap and the light did not work when my husband mounted it. We had to buy a new plug and after my husband rewired it--the light worked.
These lamps work well and, over all, look decent in my bedroom. As other reviewers have noted, the "bronze" finish is more like a grayish enamel on the swing arm and the cord cover. The wall plate and the base of the lamp are done in a better finish. It's a bit annoying if you're looking closely and the lamp is turned off. Otherwise it's probably not noticeable to a casual observer. For the price, I am satisfied.
