I decided I needed to have a sputnik style floor lamp and set about searching. I liked this one the best. The bronze color is perfect for the rustic/industrial theme I have going on in my pool room. The 12 arms of unequal length also gives the lamp a much cooler look imho. Lamps with equal length arms and fewer bulbs lose something. The light bulbs themselves are also pretty neat although I think I will try edison style leds next round. The incandescents look great but put off some heat. The base has a weight in it to keep the lamp firmly planted. Overall, the construction is what I would expect these days with one critical exception. The tiny screws that hold the arms in place are subpar and strip very easily. I usually take other people's warnings about such things with a grain of salt as I am pretty handy. I was prepared to patient with the tiny screws based on what others had said and experienced some success until my last arm where I stripped two of them. I think there may have been a metal spur inside the hole but I'm not sure. I had to JB Weld the last arm in to place. If not for that, I would rate the lamp a 4+. I am still happy with the purchase. It looks great!
This is the best lamp for anyone that sees or does needle work or anything that calls for natural sunlight, it is a wonderful lamp my not look so pretty but sure does the job. I would. But it again!
I couldn't be happier with the elegant look of this lamp. I searched two years for the perfect lamp. Perfect size for tight corner. Looks much more expensive than it is. This is one of the best online purchases I have ever made!
