Bought this lamp as a gift. Unique design, set nice tone in the room.
My friends really loved this statement piece! It definitely belongs in an area where people can see it when they visit so they can comment on how the magnetic switch works. Will buy one for myself for my home office. The light also isn't very harsh, so easy to leave on in an area where it isn't distracting.
This lamp is amazing! It's so beautiful, and quite a conversation piece. The wood is smooth and feels well made. The activating switch below is magnetized to the base until you need it, then with a gentle lift it is attracted to the ball above and click, the light comes on. The switch is activated by tension on the lower string. I played with it for quite a while when it came. It is quite bright, and would be great on a desk or side table. Might be a bit too bright for a bedside lamp, depending on your preference. The cord ends in a USB instead of a regular plug, but I think everyone has a spare adapter lying around. Honestly, for such an interesting lamp I think it was a great value, and look forward to many years of lighted enjoyment.
