My mother needed a light for the middle of her living room and didn't want to worry about tripping over a cord. This lamp works great for that purpose. The battery last long enough to not be a hassle and the light is bright enough for her needs. The lamp itself is well build and looks great!
Modern Lantern has definitely filled a need in the interior design world. Having this option of not relying on an outlet for decorative lamps is fantastic. Love their styles and they are adding new ones regularly!
