We needed taller lamps for our nightstands so that the height would match our Farmhouse Canopy bed from Pottery Barn. These lamps turned out to be perfect. Since our bed sits higher, it is not hard to reach up to turn off the light, as some others have complained about. These lamps add a nice design touch to our bedroom to go with the angular contemporary theme. For the price, it was a good deal, and gives plenty of light for reading. Our nightstands are on the taller side as well, so any lamp that was shorter would have looked a little out of place. The lamp shades did come with minor creases in the cloth and these are still visible, but becoming slightly less noticeable with time. Packaging was good.
The lamp itself is very attractive, but the shade that came with the lamp is nothing special. I swapped out the shade for one I already had and now the lamp looks great. I would have rated this lamp as excellent if the shade was nicer.
Needed a couple lamps for nightstands in our guestroom, and I didn't want anything to crazy huge, because it's a small space... these turned out to be perfect! They are very sturdy and solid, with a nice bronzey finish that has sorta coppery accents along the edges. The glass shades are a beautufully warm gold color which makes the room very cozy and inviting. I have them on a dimmer, and usually keep them quite dim, but on a desk they would throw quite a nice bit of light I would think, however, the light would have a tendancy to be focused mostly downward. Price seemed a little bit much for the smallish size of these lamps, but in the end, I believe they are worth the purchase price, so I am happy. Many guest have commented on how cool they are, and even my partner, who, when he saw a picture of them, said he wasn't crazy about them, now says he really like them. So I guess that means we are all happy! LOL
While assembling the lamp we discovered that one shaft member had two female ends whereas a male and female was required. We solved our problem by making the shortest lamp a little shorter by not using the erroneous part. Believe it or not, we really like the end result because it makes the stair step to the top more dramatic.
Would definitely recommend.
