Had an older beige one that still works fine but wanted another color for living room. Great to use for reading-adjustable position for light. Got two-one for me and one for husband. Style is functional with the dark color helping them blend in.
There are two connections with threaded screws and the holes do not match up. A metal screw would help, but what would help the most is to have the holes matched. This was a hassle for me and finally I had to have help from another person. Between us, we never were able to force the holes to match up. We had to force the screw at an angle, with much difficulty. I have had one of these lamps for many years and I love them. The ballast died and I had to have a replacement. If I had know the hassle, I would have thought twice about this purchase. ***
A great floor lamp that gives great, clear light. And the style is one that easily integrates in to the contemporary style of my home. I purchased in the Graphite color, The grey/black color blends well with the silver grate over the light. This is my third Verilux lamp and each has been a great addition to my home and support for eye health.
Love the lamp, Had one of another brand similar to this but it only lasted about a year. Hope this one fares better. Will update review if it does not! I like the fact that there are two intensities and that it is a natural light. I also like being able to adjust the lamp head to focus in different directions.
I love the Verilux floor lamp--ours broke after 10 years so I ordered a replacement one from Overstock.com and was putting it together Monday nite into the wee hours of Tues morning. The screws couldn't be found for a long time (there are only 2) so I took them out of my broken Verilux floor lamp. One screw fit, but the bottom one didn't fit at all--it didn't align with the bottom of the lamp. VERY FRUSTRATING, trying to do things that my husband would normally do but he cut his had last Wed. and he is unable to use left hand much. It's a good thing it wasn't him putting together--his patience has a low threshold for stuff like this. ANYWAY I was chatting w/Mercedes W and Stacey and they both disconnected my chat. PLEASE SEND TWO (2) 1/2" FLATEND SCREWS W/PHILLIPS SCREWHEAD ASAP!!!
I read in bed a lot, and I wanted a light that would ake it easier. It is very good for reading or any close work where direct light is an asset.
