Swing Arm Wall Sconce From the Simplicity Collection
It falls short of perfection.
I choose this lamp because it was designed for a three way bulb. I bought two of them for my den/home office. Problem is the 3-way bulbs don't fit inside the harp. Had to return the fluorescent bulbs and buy two incandescent ones. Even then it was touch and go squeezing the bulbs into place. One lamp came without a lamp shade. Customer service was very nice. A shade was sent and it arrived damaged. Called again and a second shade was sent. This one's a keeper. All and all, I like them, but would not buy them originally if I knew the issues.

I purchased two of these and am pleased. The only problem is that the cord cover that came with the lamp is extremely short (2 feet). I put these lamps next to a framed picture above my couch. I don't know too many people who would mount these lamps 24 inches off of the ground. SInce I have two lamps, I used both cord covers to cover one lamp's cord. If you need to cover the cord, you will need to buy additional cord covers at a hardware store. The lamps themselves work well and look nice, but I was disappointed with the cover.

Nice Clean Lines and Look
I purchased two to hang above end tables on each side of bed in my lodge-look guest room. Nice to leave end tables available for other stuff! They look great, very nice with either lodge or mission/craftsman furniture, and instructions were easy to follow for installation. Cord covers are a great finishing touch. Downside was that I had to wait 6 months for delivery!! Price was very fair. One harp was damaged when I received it, and your company replaced it within 5 days, so that aspect of service was excellent.

Needed a fixture that would be available for a sofa and an adjacent chair, so this is a great choice. The fixture arrived on time, very well packed, and in perfect condition. It is even nicer than I expected. The fixture can accommodate up to a 150 watt incandescent bulb. I installed a 23-watt CFL bulb - 2700 Kelvin - (warm color) equivalent to a 100 watt incandescent bulb, and it's beautiful! Couldn't be happier with my choice."

excellent lighting choice
We are extremely pleased with this light - it was exactly what we needed in our space. It provides the right lighting while using no space. Installation could not have been easier. The lamp shade is lovely - actually I didn't expect the shade to be as nice as it is - pleasant surprise.
Thank you for timely delivery and a wonderful product

Perfect reading lamp
The 150 watt capability, good reach of the arm, and simple design makes this an ideal reading lamp for the bedroom.
However - be prepared to substitute you own molly bolts for the supplied hardware if mounting in sheet rock.

great lamp for the price
Swing arms are so expensive. Found this one to put between 2 chairs in sitting area of my bedroom and bought another one for my RV that lacked good reading light. That it has a 3-way bulb is a plus. Only down side is that the shade is paper and very cheap looking. Could not find a replacement in the unique size the shade is. Otherwise I would have given this swing arm lamp 5 stars

Ordered 2 swing arm lamps. Product was back ordered so it took a while. When I finally received them one had several defects. LightingDirect was very good in getting me a replacement sent out in no time. Great people to deal with.Great communications between us. Thanks for the service.

4 for looks, 3 for quality
Just gone done installing these lights. They look pretty, but the quality of the materials is not so good.
The shade is paper, mine came damaged but because I took so long to open the box, I can't return them. I got the tan shade. When the light is on the color of the shade has a reddish/brown color.
The mounting brackets for both the lamp and the cord cover aren't square meaning you have to eyeball the level. I've got more holes behind the fixture than I care to admit. Suffice it to say I need to paint.

good product and it's exactly as advertised. the shade base is a little tricky and will be difficult to replace when it's needed.
other than that, the elderly friend for whom i purchased the lamp is very pleased.
