Great devices and reliable quality
Beautiful design and quality. Nice bright white light - really helps. I'm a little surprised at the limited area of illumination but when I use it for reading it is perfect. Other lamps help with lighting up the room.
Bought two of these and one immediately became stripped at the assembly junction on the upright pole. I wrapped it with plumbing tape and got a few more years of use before it tilted precariously and finally failed at this joint. The other lamped did not strip at that joint but it tilts there. No amount of finessing can keep this pole looking straight and vertical. When we went to move someone tried to remove the bulb by unscrewing it, which is not how they work, and the base snapped off in the socket. That was $30 for a new Ott lamp. The light is exceptional for sewing and needlework and I use it nightly but the tilting is ridiculous.
I purchased this item primarily as a reading lamp, and the light the Ott bulb provides is excellent for that purpose. I also like that the shade can be flipped nearly 180 degrees to shine toward the ceiling, providing indirect room lighting. It's like two lamps in one.
This lamp is not manufactured correctly. The parts do not screw together properly, no matter what you do. Save your money!
I am quite impressed with this lamp
I bought this lamp as a reading light for a dimly lit family room. It truly did the job, although the light was so bright and cool, it was like having a shop light! Unfortunately I wasted my money on the lamp. The pole is in two pieces, with not enough thread to hold the two pieces together. Also, the pole did not stay screwed into the base and we had to keep gluing it to keep it from wobbling. Finally, the two pieces of the pole broke in two and the whole lamp crashed to the floor. The globe is way too heavy for the pole and base.
Love this light! We use it in our office and it works very well to illuminate the entire desk area. And it looks beautiful!
This lamp looks nice, but it was difficult to put together. Like many floor lamps, the pole was divided into three parts which screwed together. The screw area was not manufactured properly. The rings were not deep enough or aligned properly. It literally took one hour of trying over and over again to get the three pieces screwed together so that they were straight. But, they were not strong. The center area bends if the lamp is moved. I do not want to try to package this up again and return it, so I am living with this, but beware.
Good reading lamp with a strong architectural look.
I never realized how desperately I needed this light until it was in my house! It has added more than just 'light', it has added joy to my life as I am able to enjoy reading, writing and painting again due to it's brilliance!
I purchased the lamp at the outlet. I liked the style. However, it didn't have a bulb and they didn't have any where I purchased it. The salesperson said the bulbs were easy to find and probably cheaper somewhere else. I tried regular 4-pin compact flourescent bulbs (cheaper but still expensive for a light bulb!) but they don't work. I didn't realize how EXPENSIVE and SPECIALIZED the bulbs are. [...] I checked the OTT-Light website and I'm not even sure they make the 25watt replacement bulbs any more! I'm disappointed and felt like the salesperson should have known better.
This lamp puts out great light for reading plus it looks good. I was surprised by how "white" the light is but am used to it now. I am really happy with this lamp.
I was looking for a floor lamp that was functional yet stylish and well-made. I had to spend more than I had planned but got the lamp that satisfied those requirements.
The globe is too heavy for the stand, so the lamp will not stand up straight, and it only comes in white.
