The swing arm lamps I recently purchased are absolutely perfect for my bedroom. I have a gorgeous four poster king bed and large dark oak furniture that looks antique and the lamps fit above the bed like they are custom made for the room. The antique bronze finish also matches my dressing area which adjoins the bedroom and has all dark bronze accessories. All in all, the lamps just added the perfect touch to a beautiful room. Thanks for a great product!!

this is crap
It is so cheaply made, it doesn't even look like brass. I think its sprat painted plastic. The arm closest to the wall doesn't move. I was told to play with it. I knew that as soon as I did it would break and i wouldn't be able to return it.
This product is inexpensive and it shows. The swivel attachment to the backplate on one of my two lamps is out of square with the backplate, and the mounting plate is too flimsy to assure a close fit between the backplate and the wall. The brass plating is spotty on the arms and the wall anchors supplied with the lamp are useless...will not work in drywall. Given the low cost, these defects aren't surprising...but if you're going for elegant, spend some more money and get a better quality lamp
I'm very happy with these lamps. The gold finish is quite fragile and they were easily scratched during installation. The shades are great and very cleverly designed for shipment. Overall I'm very pleased. Installation was easy and they are very sturdy once installed as directed. I'd certainly recommend them for the price and would purchase them again when needed!
Love the wall sconce lamps! I left on a short trip and when I returned my husband had installed them. They really look great in our bedroom! Lampshades come folded in half and that scared me a little but they looked fine when unfolded. Would definitely recommend them! Shopped everywhere and this was the best value by far!!!
We followed the advice of other reviewers and used heavier plugs and screws to mount the lamps. The shades arrived in great shape and there was only one small scratch on one of the arms. We were able to mount it so that it did not show. They look great and the light they give is perfect for reading in bed--the real reason I wanted them. I would recommend them to anyone--a great value for the price.
I bought two of these a year ago and love their look. Was happy to see they were still available. Love the three-way bulb option, which is hard to find. Installation was easy enough; would be great if somehow they could include a cord cover, but those are easy to purchase at the big box stores.
The lamps were as I expected and except for the cord covers which were not included with either everything was complete, easy to assemble and install. Relative to the price, the quality was entirely acceptable.
Lovely, Stylish and practical. The Bronze color lamp is identical to the wood of our new cherry/leather bedroom suit. I did worry that the low cost lamp would look cheap next to the furniture, but it looks as if it were made for it. The 3 way light is perfect for late night reading while my husband sleeps!
This lamp is great! The only thing that should be changed is: MAKE THE HARP ATTACHMENT BASE A BIT WIDER SO IT CAN HOLD A 3-WAY COMPACT FLORESCENT LIGHT INSTEAD OF AN ENERGY WASTING 3-WAY INCANDESCENT LIGHT.
Light was easy to install. Shade design is brilliant!
