Destined for darkness
I rarely order online but was pressed for time and hadn't found a good selection of floor lamps in stores. I was really wanting a lamp for the corner of my family room that seemed too dark, especially for reading. I liked the look of this lamp. However, this purchase proved to be quite the disappointment. When I opened the box, the only directions I found was a single picture with numbered steps, nothing in actual writing of how to assemble or operate the lamp. A few Allen wrenches and tiny screws were included. When I opened the section with the base, I noticed a loose small round piece; as I continued assembly, I realized that piece was not supposed to be loose but was supposed to be attached. Although the exterior of the piece was metal, the interior of the piece that had broken appeared to be blue plastic. I believe this small knob was supposed to be the on/off switch; it is the piece the thin stick alongside the main part of the lamp is supposed to sit into. Again, instructions were poor, so I am not absolutely sure of the function of this piece, only that it was broken and that I could not finish assembling the lamp. Due to the poor instructions and questionable sturdiness of this piece, I decided I no longer wanted this lamp and did not replace it. It's a shame because the lamp overall was an attractive piece. I am still without a lamp in my dark corner.
Saw this at a local store, so I knew what it looked like before buying. Bought it at Overstock for $*** less. Very nice shape to this lamp. The on/off knob is not readily apparent, but is convenient when sitting in a chair. Looks great when dimmed and gives plenty of light for reading when on full strength.
clean lines, great color and shades, and easily adjustible arm for this light. The built-in dimmer switch stopped working after I already owned the lamp for a year...so now I use a tabletop dimmer instead.
As another reviewer complains, the assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired, but it's not that difficult to figure it out. The assembled lamp is elegant and gives both pleasant ambient and good task light, depending on how you angle the adjustable top section. We replaced an existing floor lamp with one of these, and found that the base is heavy enough to keep the lamp steady without making the whole thing so heavy that moving it around is a pain. Really, the only negative is the switch: it's sheathed in metal, but the heart of the mechanism is a piece of pretty delicate-seeming plastic, and I'm afraid that a few months of twiddling the clever vertical rod that controls the switch--turns it on and off, and dims it--will wear the plastic down so that the rod no longer grips, or break the plastic altogether. Time will tell, I guess. If it's going to go, here's hoping it has the decency to go while the lamp is still under warranty!
Overall I am happy with my purchase...
Overall, I am pleased with my purchase - but it's not perfect. As others noted - the directions are needlessly confusing. Just know - before you slide any pieces together, you first have to loosen the teeny-tiny hex bolts and tighten them afterwords. And they neglect to mention in the directions that the on/off switch is the extra vertical pole (you have to twist it)... My other complaint is that the lamp leans a bit because the large vertical piece doesn't sit sturdy in the base. Even so, at the end of the day the lamp looks great and works well. I needed a light so I could sit on my couch and read, but had a limited amount of space to work with (complicated by the fact that needed a lamp that wouldn't be too much of a temptation for my cat to jump on, since it sits next to a cat condo) - and this fit the bill perfectly.
Great reading lamp
It was a little difficult to put together since the instructions are not helpful. It's perfect behind the couch as a reading light. The switch to turn it off and on is easy to reach while I sitting on the couch.
Nice lamp, poor instructions.
The lamp works great behind our sectional as a reading lamp. The instructions were non existent and some screws did not fit.
Works well at corner of sectional couch.
