I bought this torchiere from a lighting store for our home office several years ago. When I needed a second one for a different application, the lighting store gave me the info to find this halogen lamp on the web since they no longer carry them due to some restrictive laws concerning halogen bulbs. I'm so happy to have found this lamp again since it is perfect for our needs. It is very attractive and multi-purpose with its double lights. It is also dimmable which adds to its appeal.
My challenge was to find a modern, good looking, slender, must-be-matte-black, floor lamp to light up a dark, dismal den/home office. This Torchiere from Light Source does the job. It looks great. It's sturdy (even when rammed by racing cats). It's a good value, high-end quality and provides both room and task lighting. A bright solution for a dark space.
Lamp is very sturdy and ideal for our home office. Be careful, though, when assembling. My husband wore gloves when he installed the halogen light bulb but didn't when he attached the protective shield. As a result, the shield shattered, throwing glass around the office after the light was on for 15-20 minutes. Assembly instructions need to call attention to little but important tasks such as that one.
Needed to replace a favorite floor lamp. We found one we now like even better. Provides excellent reading light, adjustable torch light, takes up minimal floor space, and is very attractive. We did need two of us to hold the pieces to get the lamp assembled.
How would you rank the quality of Instructions and ease of installation/set-up?
Although the instructions were a little weak, assembly, albeit somewhat fussy, was not as bad as some reviewers make it out to be. Lamp is attractive and seems well made. It has already proven to be an excellent replacememt/upgrade for the lamp adjacent to my wife's grand piano. Directional and area lighting both very effective.
I highly recommend this lamp. Actually, I had one before for many years and something happened to it so I was very happy to found another one like it. It's really a great lamp! Five stars from me *****
