I moved recently and discovered that my bedroom did not have sufficient lighting. Even with bedside tables, I could not see well enough to read in bed or to read/watch films on my tablet. I had floor lamps in my living room, but they cost each about $$$. I wanted something less expensive. I paid just a little over $$$ with tax for this lamp. (I purchased only one.) When I saw this floor lamp, I knew immediately that it would work. I love the finish (I decorate with nickel and silver, so the brushed steel works well), and I really appreciate that I can turn on one or both bulbs to read--just by pulling one or both chains. I use 75 watt bulbs in each side. The lamp arrived quickly, was easy to put together (although the main part into which I twisted parts together is slightly askew), and looks great. Delivery was fast and the item parts were well packaged. Directions were straightforward, but I did not need them. For those purchasing the lamp, you will have to remove the finial to position the shade appropriately on the lamp and then just screw it back on.
My husband is all about a lot of light- I am at an age where the less light the better :) We just re did our home office and I wanted some kind of bright light in there for him to read without being too bright. This is a perfect fit. The price is right. I assembled this myself ( I am so proud :) ) Its perfect. I mean if you want to spend like $500.00 for some trendy stainless steel floor lamp. But we really do like it!
We bought two of these floor lamps as side lamps to our stainless steel bed headboard. They are a perfect compliment. The lamps were easy to assemble. The lamps have two bulbs independently switched, we are using a combination of 13-watt and 18-watt CFL bulbs (60-watt and 100-watt incandescent equivalents), this makes perfect "3-way lighting", 60-100-160 watt equivalent. We purchased other floor lamps that were also "good", but no where near to the quality of these lamps. The shades are also "double silk" quality, and the power cord is clear with silver metal wires to match the stainless steel appearance. The bases are heavy and the lamps are very stable.
It took us 3 returns to finally get an undamaged lamp. The packaging is awful. This is a heavy lamp that crushes a piece of plastic that holds the lightbulb. That piece can't be easily replaced without replacing the entire base of the lamp. In the end, we settled for one that leaned a bit, but that was easy enough to correct with some foam to balance it. The lamp itself is high quality, priced wonderfully, and Overstocks's customer service was great. We got the matching table lamp which was in perfect condition. I would love to order another one of these floor lamps, but can't deal with all the returns should it be damaged. The lamp itself is five stars.
