I desperately wanted this lamp for my home so I was delighted when I received it as a gift for Mother's Day. The lamp was everything I expected in style and looks and I love it... BUT there does seem to be a problem with the base of the lamp. The pieces where the pole and the base screw in together feels very flimsy and wabbles a great deal if you slightly touch it. It does not appear that there is anything broken or wrong with the lamp. The pieces screw together tightly and fit correctly and when you lift up the pole, it does not separate from the base. It almost as if there is an issue with the way the lamp was made that causes it to do this but I am not sure. My plan is to take it back to the store and pick up another one but I do have a strange feeling that the same thing will happen. At almost [$] for a lamp I expect more quality from a product, even and especially if it is made by Threshold which is Target's furniture line. If not for this problem,then the only complaint I would have about this lamp would be the cost which is why I had not bought it for myself because I was waiting for it to go on sale. It is a little pricy and honestly, I'm not sure if it's really worth the full price they are asking. But since it was a present, the only legitimate complaint I can give the lamp is it seems to be unstable as if it will topple over. I'm slightly disappointed but hopeful that it's just a defected piece. I will be back with a follow up when I do my exchange.
I had looked online at several other lighting websites and even
visited a store or two, and the Target brand light fixture was
well designed, reasonably heavy materials (so the light won't
tip over easily by pets), and a fraction of the cost of higher
status lighting stores.
An amazing value for the quality. Bought one for my daughter and not only did she love it but now my son wants one! I love all the different options for light brightness and how you can swivel all of the heads to highlight say a picture on the wall or reading in bed. I HIGHLY recommend this product!!!
Just bought my 2nd lamp. Perfect for my 94 year old mom so she can read on the couch and light the room. I need to know where I can get a new switch. After several years of day in and day out use I would like to replace the switch. Thanks in advance. John
I bought this lamp at a target store. I couldn't be happier. It's sturdy and nicer than a lot of the lamps target sells at the same price. Plus, the shades are big enough to hide the ugly cfc light bulbs.
