Great Bedside Light!

from Medina, WA – Verified Buyer

I bought 2 for the bedside and having a lower platform bed, and I was worried I'd have to look up into an ugly light bulb from bed. I was happy to see that these lamps come with a glass 'diffuser' that hides the light bulb and casts a nice soft light. The shade is supposed to clamp to this diffuser, but it more or less balances on it so it can get crooked if bumped. And in the specs it says light bulb not included, but it came with a bulb. Nice quality - I'd purchase again!

Swingin' Lamp

from Las Vegas, NV – Verified Buyer

Bought two of these for each side of the bed. Brown chrome beautiful, quality great, ease of installation excellent. Only reason not giving it five stars was difficulty with shade attachment. Not clear as to how that works. . Would still not hesitate to recommend this product. Truly well made and beautiful.

All that was expected and then some

from Asheville. NC

I purchased two lamps to use on both sides of a bed in our guest room. The lamps are high quality and great looking. Outboard mounting installation would have been extremely easy. however, we chose to install them so that the wires were inside the wall and wouldn't show. This proved more problematic than planned due to the overall weight of the lamp. The large and quite heavy glass diffuser that surrounds the bulb and supports the shade adds considerable weight and necessitated extra bracing. Otherwise, no problem. My only other negative is that the shade support is a bit touchy and the shade often needs adjustment. Otherwise an exccellent, good looking product.

We must like it - it's our 2nd!

from boston, ma – Verified Buyer

since it has the exact same id# we assumed it'd be exactly like the one we ordered a few years back. but it's not, so it's lucky we're not using it in the same room.

Love this product!

from Shrewsbury, MA – Verified Buyer

We installed two - one on either side of our bookcase headboard over the bed. They are beautiful - you get what you pay for - sometimes you just have to spend a little more for a quality look.
