I am 100% pleased with this floor lamp. It looks classy, expensive and lights up the room. I can’t believe what a bargain. It’s heavy enough that it wouldn’t topple over easily. A breeze unpacking and setting up. If I ever need another floor lamp I would buy the same again.
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!
I ordered 2 lamps and one has a noticeable bend at the point where the wood is screwed to the metal pole. It also came with a minor scratch. Because of this, I gave it 3 stars.
This lamp works perfectly to give a spot of light for reading or just a little background light while watching TV. It won’t light up the whole room , as a torchiere would.I like the black metal base and cloth shade, no cheap plastic parts.
