looks look, works very well. my only complaint is the base isn't level, somewhat bowed at the bottom ---so the result is the product is somewhat unstable. we have it on a hard wood floor, so the 'rocking effect' might be more pronounced on carpeting. overall, the bad for the price --- just don't except too much.

I'm sorry I had to return the lamp. The quality is very good, and I really liked the shape of the lamp. I think if the lamp was taller, maybe it would have worked for me. I wanted to use it for reading in bed. My bed sits high. Although my bedroom is rather small, the space where I wanted to place the lamp allowed very little room for the lamp shade. The lamp shade appears to be smaller in the picture than it really is. Nonetheless, the light was too much in my face while sitting up in bed, and there was no way to adjust it. Finally, the lamp is definitely made to be positioned for a side view as shown in the picture.
My only complaint with this lamp is that the description says it takes a 150 watt bulb, but when in fact it only takes 100 watts. Not a deal breaker, but that was a feature that made me choose this particular lamp over other floor lamps. I like the brightest light possible. Just wish those who write these descriptions would be accurate.
So, so happy with this purchase! This is such a beautiful floor lamp! It is chic and the simple lines of the design makes it so elegant to look at! In my opinion, the lamp looks even better in person. The height is about 56" and is perfect for our living room dimensions. The built is sturdy and the almost transparent plastic white wiring and floor switch make it look neat, especially from a distance. The shade is a light beige color and the texture of the material is elegant. Over all, this is well worth the price. Would definitely recommend. Arrived very well packed, in working condition and fast. Thanks O!!
The one star is not for the floor lamp itself. Had a bad experience with receiving a lamp that had obviously been returned by someone else (repackaged and sent back), and not reopened or checked by Overstock before sending it out to me. The person's return info was still in there. The packaging was a hot mess - Tiny broken pieces of styrofoam were all over the product (and now all over my living room just from opening the box). No assembly instructions which I wouldn't have even looked for if I had been able to attach the base to the rest of it. I could not - not sure if it's faulty or missing a part... Now I have to take the trouble to repackage this all over again and return it. Very disappointed. Never had this happen with Overatock before.
I have a small home and needed a reading light that I can easily move as I change the furniture layout with the seasons. This lamp has a unique, airy look that takes up little space while giving the strong light I need for reading in my favorite stuffed chair. It's exactly the right height for sending light over my shoulder onto the book. It came well packaged and was easy to put together. I had it up and working in about 15 minutes. CON: the floor switch. Fortunately the floor switch is actually on the wire between the plug and the base of the lamp. There was enough cord length so that I could put the switch in the small table next to the chair in a way that isn't obtrusive but lets me turn the light off and on without having to get up and search for the floor switch.
