  • These are definitely small enough to do that
  • This lamp can only take a 40 watt bulb, which I think makes it not so great for reading
  • It’s very unusual looking which I like, but does not have the kind of functionality that I associate with table lamps
  • I love hanging lamps that are lightweight, but I think I always prefer a table lamp with a nice heavy base
  • In my opinion, these little lamps are worth considering for anyone who is looking to stretch their decorating budget

      This is probably the simplest take on a table lamp I have ever seen. At under 5 dollars, it just seemed too good to pass up. It comes in red, white or black. I got the red, because I seem to be a sucker for anything red and plastic. To me there’s something sort of retro seventies about these lamps. but I actually think they’re cuter, probably the small size is what grabs me about them. They’re just cute as a button and they look like

      you could use them anywhere. One of my favorite things to do when decorating is nestle a lamp or two on the shelves of a bookcase. These are definitely small enough to do that.

      This lamp can only take a 40 watt bulb, which I think makes it not so great for reading. I think I read somewhere you need at least 60 watts for that. Also, the color choices are not real practical, aside from the white. I wish now, that I had gotten the white. The red is actually kind of scary looking when lit and it doesn’t help me to see anything. I actually had to stop using it because the red light it gave off was distorting the colors of everything in my bedroom. I have also seen the black lit up. It is actually sort of a dark grey when lit up. It’s very unusual looking which I like, but does not have the kind of functionality that I associate with table lamps. It’s more mood lighting than ...

      reading lighting. It has sort of a cool smoky masculine vibe about it, though. It would look great in a teenage boys room, I think.

      I think it might be better if these lamps weren’t so light weight. It can easily be knocked off tables if someone is careless when they walk by. I love hanging lamps that are lightweight, but I think I always prefer a table lamp with a nice heavy base. One detail that I really like is that there is a little notch

      in the base for the cord to go through. That helps keep it a bit more stable than it would otherwise be. And, overall I have to admire it for its clever design.

      I actually recommend these as ambient lighting and perhaps bedside lamps, especially the white. Unbelievable price and a very cute design. In my opinion, these little lamps are worth considering for anyone who is looking to stretch their decorating budget.
