Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JSFNYC Best value in tasteful swing arm lamps!
I was looking to replace a classic 25-year old polished brass swing arm lamp by my bed with two brushed steel lamps as I rid my NYC apartment of old-fashioned brass. I looked in stores and online and could not find a simply designed lamp, and did not want to spend $400-$500 each for Hinson or similar high-end lamps. I was initially put off by the busy shade with brown squiggles on this lamp, but when they arrived I found them to be just white with white squiggles. They're paper, but decent, and remain white when lit, rather than turning cream. They're 7" top, 13" bottom and 8" slant height. I may decide to replace the shades with custom linen from Fenchel Shades with less slant. The brushed steel is beautifully done. The arms are a little looser than I'd prefer but work fine. The backplates are considerably larger than the high-end lamps, but not offensive. I used the 6 screws and anchors each that were supplied and used a carbide drill into plaster/masonry without any problems. The "cups" around the lamp socket were slightly crooked, but I was able to bend them straight. I didn't bother using the cord covers - the silver cord is fine. Then I plugged them into one Lutron credenza dimmer made for LED bulbs. I could not be happier, and I'm quite a discerning shopper! Highly recommended - best value for money anywhere.

The lights are very nice looking but some of the trim fasteners were stripped and had to be forced to stay in place (one still isn't) so we will be trying to get a replacements. Otherwise the base is not connected firmly to the wall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cthelight Nice looking, good for reading
I bought this to use over the bed as a reading lamp. It is one of only two lamps this style I could find that takes a 3 way bulb up to 150 watts. I am pleased with the style and with the light it provides. My installer thought the provided installation hardware wasn't the best, so he used some other hardware he had. I didn't need the cord cover since the cord is mostly hidden by the headboard. I didn't think the cord cover looked particularly nice anyway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by capi Very nice design, color and function.
My wife and I like the wall mounting and swing arm, this declutters the nightstands and helps light any night reading. The design is great, the quality and color were very good.
I personally installed them in less than an hour.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleased55 Nice looking wall lamp
We ordered this wall lamp for our Master Bedroom since we don't have a ceiling light. It's a nice looking lamp, rather costly for its simplicity. When we received it, the lamp shade was cracked and damaged in several locations. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a replacement free of charge.
