Will it give enough light to read by?
It's short, sturdy, and I have a 13W CFL in there which kicks out a good amount of gentle light. I use this as a "night lamp" while my son is small, in the living room, and it's great for getting ready for bedtime and for being able to see enough without it being super bright. With a dimmer bulb, it would be, well, less bright. The bulb sits pretty much right in the middle, so the shade provides good light control. The "bamboo" cover is glued to a plastic cylinder, so it's more durable than the picture appears....

Perfect size, but horrible quality. Cheapens the zen atmosphere I was trying to bring to my at-home meditation space. Definitely NOT worth the money I paid. First Overstock purchase I regret.Read More

really pretty, well made. uses a smaller diameter bulb, so i haven't used it much yetRead More
I bought 2 of these for bedside tables. They take a low wattage bulb and I worried they would not give enough light to read by. I can read by them but the light is so soft I get sleepy quickly...which is kind of why I read at bedtime anyway, so...win/win! These lamps are great-looking in my bedroom and would also look great in a foyer, on a mantelpiece, or anywhere you would like a low light accent.Read More
