The product arrived in perfect condition in solid packaging. The lamp looks just like it is pictured though the shade was a little darker than I expected. It feels and looks solidly built. The shade can be tilted so that the light shines down on the floor or pointed up toward the wall or ceiling. It can also move from side to side somewhat as well. This is a great feature if you like the ability to move it around, but it can be a drawback to those that would like to get it into position once and not have to worry about it getting moved out of kilter. I really like this product and am very happy with it.
Color appears to be more brown than red when delivered. Also needed to place a second order as I missed that fact that the transformer is a separate item to purchase. Made it a bit more expensive than I planned.
I would suggest installing a dimmer switch with this track light. The five 50 watt halogens get a bit too bright and hot if the light is installed on a lower ceiling. Love the look and style of this fixture.
Don't think this is anything but a metal and plastic lamp made to look like something better.
The parts are made of stamped or formed steel, painted to (kind of) simulate a pottery look. Truly milk chocolate bar brown color, not "rust." The shade is a painted steel frame with 3 PLASTIC inserts to simulate the look of mica. Plastic is similar in type and weight to "clamshell" packaging. 3 wire struts are non-functional, attached by a single tiny screw at their base, making them easy to loosen and flop around 360•. They could easily be left off.
Has two 40 WATT lamps, not 60W as described. 6' cord.
Made/packed in China, distributed in US by drop shipment. Cal Lighting is "a division of Big Ocean Corp."
It took me 15 minutes to unpack and assemble one. It's a look-alike, worth well under $100. Although decent construction for an all-steel lamp. It will do.
But be aware this item is NOT returnable. The potentially brittle, scorchable, bendable shades are EXCLUDED from warranty.
This lamp is extremely attractive and an excellent value. Very easy assembly. Each section screws together and won't fall apart when you move the lamp. Heavy and sturdy, but best used on non-carpeted floors around small children. If it were to tip over, the glass shade would definitely shatter. Gives off nice diffused light. Definitely worth the price. Shipping was fast, and I was kept well informed about when it would arrive. Would definitely buy from this company again!
This lamp looks great, near perfect. Only wish that the amber colored shade would have come to a close at the top of the lamp as well. When you place a light bulb in it, and turn it on, you get a really nice amber glow around the lamp but white light shoots out of the top. Had they made the amber shade continue on the top then you would have a nicer amber glow in the room. Kind of annoying, but the lamp still looks amazing. Absolutely worth buying.
I have searched all over for lamps like these and was very pleased to find them. They look great in my house and I love the quality of the product. I was also very pleased with the promptness of the delivery and the quality of your service.
Although I love the way they look in the room, these lights were a royal pain to install. Some of them came with complete installation kits, while others came with only some of the required screws. Two of my nine had no decorative screw caps enclosed, so I had to improvise their installation.
Each light arrives in the box with a cord installed - but since I was hard-wiring, I had to detach the cord for each unit. Also, be warned, the wiring is really cheap and flimsy (we are not talking copper wire here) and thus will get all tangled up if you screw and unscrew the wire cap more than once.
All in all a decent lamp. Very beautiful deep amber light from the shade that seems a bit on the frail side. Shade material is aluminum frame and plastic film with mica flakes laminated to it. Assembles very easily.
Shopping on line can be a good or bad experience.Fortunately this was a good one. This is a great lamp,very attractive. Bought for my husband to read his sheet music to play his guitar.Would not hesitate to buy from them again.
I received this product only a few days after ordering and it is everything I expected it to be. The lamp casts an amber glow and seems to have a rather masculine character, for a lamp. It would look good in a den or library or maybe on a bedroom nightstand.
We had an idea of what we wanted in an adjustable height floor lamp. After checking local stores and not finding what we wanted we went on line. Not only did we find the lamp style we wanted, the quality is excellent and the lamp priced reasonably.
Nice LED light. The lamp was a little too blue for me (though not an icky blue like some LEDs) so I replaced it with a Phillips GU10 LED warm white, and it is beautiful now. Would be nice if the manufacturer shipped it with a choice of warm white or 'crisp white' as many manufacturers call the bluish one.
These were a perfect match for our kitchen island. When lit, it is exactly what the picture depicts but beware that it is brown when not lit. This is fine for us because our island cabinetry is dark brown. The swirl compliments the swirls on our granite countertop.
I like the lamp itself but was disappointed in the color of it paint job primarily on the base of the lamp which looks stripped. I also could not tell from the detail on the internet that the lamp shade was pretty much just cardboard. The light itself I like. This particular lamp shipped quickly which I liked. The setup was easy
This is a very nice lamp - rustic without the mooses and bears. Nice heavy base, very easy to assemble (no need for instructions really...it's pretty obvious.) It was VERY well wrapped and packed which was nice given the delicate nature of the cones and branches. It looks great in my CO living room. My boyfriend commented that it looked nicer in person than in the photo.
I love the lamp now as much as I did when I bought it. It fits very well into my decor and its sturdy solid base makes it less likely to tip over if bumped as some floor lamps are apt to do. The only thing I would suggest would be a selection of of a lighter shade color if possible. The shade is a bit darker than expected and not as easy to use as a reading lamp as it was intended. It's fine for watching television or just general lighting, but not for doing any close work.
I have been search for months for just the right lamp for my dresser. I just love my new lamps, they arrived in 3 days and were in prefect condition. I wasn't sure the shade would work, but it matches nicely with the golds in my other fabrics. Thank you Lighting Universe!
The bronze finish and base look cheap and was disappointed in the lamp's appearance. the finish is a poor imitation and the base looks WalMart in style. assembly and packaging receive high marks. instructions and components also were fine. good quality light but not great qualty rating on the finish.
