We bought this lamp and it works great, exactly what we wanted, it looks good to, it is sturdy and well made.
Why then 3 stars?
Functionality, you have to turn the lamp upside down, open the door to unplug the battery and remove the battery. Take the battery where you can connect it to the charger and the lamp is out of service. Fine if that is the way you choose to do it then you should INCLUDE a second battery and not force your customers to pay $79.00 for that second battery.
Quality Control, the lamp shade connection, that point at which the lamp shades top piece comes in contact with the lamp arm and the lamp shade is held in place by a large nut. I had to put a couple of toothpicks pieces on one side before tightening up the nut so the lamp shade was perpendicular. Without this the bottom of the lamp shade hit the vertical arm. Why not bend something......it too well made 👍.
Are these issues enough to return the lamp, absolutely note.
Would I buy another lamp, yes
Am I annoyed that a company can build such a great product and miss so completely on a functionality and quality control issse? DEFINATELY
We are looking to order this lamp now - we already ordered the Capri lamp for my Mom. She absolutely loves the lamp and the quality is unbelievable. She had a new condo and needed a lamp in the middle of the room. It looks great and she uses it as a reading lamp every night. We had a small issue after a number of months with the charging of the lamp (battery was not keeping its charge long enough) and this company immediately mailed her a new one at no cost. I have referred numerous friends and family to this web-site and will continue to do so in the future. High quality lamps and great customer service!!
This lamp works perfectly with my new furniture, the style is lovely and the amount of light is perfect. We use it every night so I do have to recharge the batter about every 4 days. So I will definitely purchase a back up battery. I had an issue with a dent in the lampshade and Stephen Fitzwater provided EXCELLENT customer service with replacing the lampshade. And he was very patient with all my emails! Highly recommend this company and their products.
I love My 1950's California Ranch with it open floor plan. Downside, everything is in the middle of the room, and my husband(the tech geek) will agree that I have this thing with cords all over the place, so I've gone without lamps. Great over head lighting but lacking in ambiance. Enter the cordless lamp! I'm so happy to have found these and will definitely be buying a twin for the other end of my sofa table. Friends are so intrigued, quite the conversation starter. Well packaged and no problems out of the box.
As another reviewer mentioned, we too built a home without enough in-floor outlets. This little lamp does just what I hoped and lights up the side of the room that would otherwise be too dark. We have tested the battery life, and it does indeed exceed twenty hours. It's perfect! Currently thinking we will purchase a second larger lamp from Modern Lantern in the future.
