2 Light Adjustable Wall Sconce from the Second Marriage Collection
First of all, 'restoration bronze' is a fancy and misleading name for 'black'. I don't mind the color but why not just call it what it is? Second, the cross bar was welded on to the back plate crookedly - so, while we mounted the plate exactly level, the cross bar with the two lights is slightly crooked (poort quality control). Finally, the two little lamps come covered with large stickers warning about the dangers of using bulbs with too high wattage. Yea, I get it - but it meant that I ended up having to buy a bottle of Goo Gone and spend 1/2 hour scrubbing the sticker residue off the lamps. Extremely annoying and unnecessary in my view. Wouldn't it be possible to put a hang tag on the lamps? Or some other solution that does not require covering the lamp with a large, gooey sticker?

Love this lamp!
Hubby didn't think we needed a reading lamp over the bed, but now he uses it more than I do. We love the unobtrusive, slim structure and the cord cover to keep things neat. The lights are controlled separately, dimmable and you can aim them whereever needed. Point them toward the wall & they are great for mood lighting too.

Attractive and functional
Just renovated the bedroom in our 1920s bungalow. Decor is an eclectic mix of contemporary and retro. New queen size bed left no room for bedside tables or lamps. This wall sconce was the perfect solution. Had no idea plug-in wall lighting could be so elegant! Our lighting is much improved - love the modest scale, cord cover, and dimmers.

Like the lamp. Excellent for reading and has dimmer, too.
Easy to adjust with gooseneck connection on both lamps. Not good at complex directions so I had to have someone put it up. Also, the bar across, holding both lamps is a bit off center.

Best purchase ever
After a very long search and a number of failures, this light met all our needs. It is elegant and functional with a directional beam that is easily adjusted with one finger. No more laying on one side only or crooking my neck to read at night. The light can go very bright or down to subdued mood lighting and is the best reading light we have. LightingDirect.com got the light to us quickly and had good follow up. I recommend this entire experience highly.

Item arrived in new condition. It was easy to install. We use it over a desk to provide down lighting for reading/writing/studying. Although the two bulbs provide very good light, they get hot. Nevertheless, the lights each have a sleek handle to grab when you need to manipulate the direction of the lighting. The dimmer switches are a nice feature. The bulbs can be somewhat tricky to replaced since they fit snuggly into the lamp. Overall, this is exactly what we needed, and if we needed more I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another.

Great Modern Fixture
Purchased this fixture for my newly remodeled home office. Looks great and easy to install. Very functional in that both lights are adjustable---mounted between 2 desk spaces. One bulb arrived broken and Lighting Direct is shipping a new one. As always, great customer service with LD!

We ordered these lights for our theater room in our basement and they are great. Exactly what we wanted. The individual dimmer switches are great. Would highly recommend them.

Great, but needs better instructions
Love this lamp! Very high quality. The only thing I wish was better was the instructions/manual. It doesn't really tell you how to replace the light bulbs. It comes with a suction cup that is meant to be used to help twist the bulbs on and off. Took me a while to figure this out. Once I did though, very easy!

Bought this for over my son's bed to make it easier to read bedtime stories. Has been great. Arms make the lights adjustable. Halogen bulbs are bright and white so that reading even dark print on dark pages is easy. Loved it so much that I am now ordering one for over my own bed.
