Rated 5 out of 5Â by golfhack70 Very Nice Lamp
I purchased 2 of these lamps...both arrived promptly in good condition and were easy to assemble. The frosted glass shades are really pretty and coordinate well with the brushed nickel finish. The base is heavy/solid enough that the lamp stands up straight, even on carpet. The larger top light will accept a 3-way bulb, but I have not tried that yet...I am using 2 100-watt bulbs in each lamp. The on/off switches can be a bit tricky to turn. I have only had the lamps for about a month, so quality/durability levels remain to be seen, but for the price, I would highly recommend this one if you need a stylish, functional floor lamp.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by EastNashMan Hampton Bay has outdone themselves!
Lighting is probably the thing I'm most picky about in my house, so I didn't purchase this lamp until after doing a bunch of research. This must be a new lamp offered by Home Depot, and Hampton Bay must have discovered a new technology for making inexpensive lamps, cuz this lamp is a steal!! This is by far the best value of any lamp I have ever purchased. Period. I have bought tons of lamps and light fixtures at Home Depot, and this one tops the list! All other lamps I have seen in this price range, including ones at all the other "discount stores" (Walmart, Target, Big Lots), are of much lower quality than this. I paid $30 for this, and similar floor lamps are generally $40-$70.
The things I'm most surprised about and impressed with this lamp (compared to others around the same price)...
-nice alabaster glass shades - not plastic!
-adjustable reading light - it swivels several directions
-shiny steel finish - it's both classy and modern (in my opinion)
-sturdy - doesn't feel cheap or flimsy
My only minor complaint is that the top section (including both the reading light and 3-way light) is all one piece - and mine is a little bit crooked. It's not extremely noticeable, and is really only noticeable from certain angles. But none-the-less it is an issue to note - and there's no way to fix the crookedness because it's all one piece and made of very tough steel. I don't know whether or not this is a common problem for this product.
I honestly don't think you can do better for the price. If you find something better than this for $30, I'd be VERY surprised!
P.S. for BULBS... in the pic I'm using a 9-watt CFL (40-watt equiv.) for the reading lamp and a 13-watt CFL (60-watt equiv.) for the 3-way. I realize this makes no sense!! Most people buy these lamps for the 3-way feature, but I like them better with just one wattage option. I've found I don't need more than a 13/60w & 9/40w from this lamp cuz I have a 23/100w lamp and a 180w ceiling fan in the same room. But of course a 50-100-150w is the recommended bulb for the 3-way.

Arrived in a timely manner and had to be put together which was very easy. The lamp is a major find for the price and quality.Room and reading light combine to make it perfect and eliminates the need for a lamp. Would definitely recommend this product.

Picked up the lamp from local store and put together in no time. I purchased this for my office. Have received lots of compliments. I am thinking of buying one for my home.
This lamp is well worth the purchase price.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by greenbean Good lamps, but the on/off switches are hard to turn and are too small for arthritic hands.
I had to glue a larger knob onto the on/off switches as the ones on the lamps are too hard to turn.
