Looks pretty decent, but poor build quality I bought this lamp specifically to put a fairly large CFL bulb in; for that, it works quite well. This looks like the type of lamp that you might find at a certain Scandinavian chain, but it’s more expensive and of poorer quality. It’s quite flimsy; several of the wooden pieces are a bit warped, and it’s not all that stable. (I was expecting it to have more heft and stability, since it was listed as 20lbs when I purchased it. The shipping weight is now listed as 9.1lbs at least… Actual weight is about 5lbs after assembly.)Assembly is fairly straightforward. However, the little plastic ring that holds the shade down arrived broken; the lamp worked, but the shade looked all crumpled. The manufacturer didn’t reply to my email, so I ended up having to have the entire thing replaced by Amazon. (I was hoping the manufacturer would just send me that tiny part and save everyone time, money, and fuel.) The build quality is fairly poor in general. A few of the vertical wooden rods are very slightly warped, but it assembled fine, and overall the thing looks pretty decent unless you inspect it up close. Their method of getting the cord to the side of the lamp and to the ground is to give you three zip-ties to hold it in place…I opted for a replacement primarily because I’d been having trouble finding a floor lamp to fit my , which is 10.5″ long. (Do note that the description on this lamp says “150 watts max” but the instructions state a 40-something watt maximum CFL. However, I suspect they do this for lighting equivalency; there’s no safety issue electrically, and neither the socket nor the base of the bulb gets more than somewhat warm. The only hot areas are just to the sides of the bulb, and above the open top of the lamp, where they should be! The shade barely gets warm. A 150 watt incandescent bulb would generate much more heat anyways!)So between the well-sized shade and the open top to ventilate heat from my massive bulb, and looking decent even if somewhat flimsy, I’m reasonably satisfied with this lamp. If I was just putting a more standard lower-wattage bulb in it, though, the first one probably would’ve just gone back after arriving broken.
Flimsy This looks nice from a distance, BUT small shelves aren’t supported well. The whole thing sways easily and would fall over if barely bumped. Very disappointed.
Pretty lamp Gives a good white light as it doesn’t block light too much. Useful as it has other racks to put things. Product was as described. Installation was clear and easy
