Great for reading or knitting
I have tried several "true white" lamps or lightbulbs for reading and needlework/knitting and have always been disappointed until I purchased this lamp. The color of the light is pure, the flexible neck on the lamp allows precise placement of the light beam and the easy adjustment of light intensity makes it perfect for my tasks.
The lamp is tucked behind my favorite family room reading spot; the sleek design allows the lamp to practically disappear in my traditional home when not in use. I just purchased a second lamp for the reading chair in my home office!
Light me the way!
Replacement for an energy inefficient halogen floor lamp.
Very bright floor lamp!
Reading and crafting.
Works great so I ordered a second one
Great for knitting, crocheting or any hand sewing. Also works well next to sewing machine for concentrated light.
Best light ever
I bought this for my elderly mother whose eyesight is failing but who loves to read. She also has lots of mobility problems. I have bought 4 other reading lights for her, none of them satisfactory for her. The fact that you can focus the beam to be as wide or narrow as you want is an absolute godsend, since she also multitasks, watching TV at the same time. So the light can just go on her book. Also, it is so compact and the flexible neck means it doesnt get in her way -- she gets up and down all the time, and other lights had to be positioned so that she had to swing them away. I wish Id bought this wonderful light from the start!
Husband likes it a lot!
I bought this for myself but once my husband saw it I could tell he wanted one too! I like that it is discreet and very easy to assemble. Of course, the best part is the fact that you can zoom the focus in and out. I also like that the light that comes out reminds me of a cheery bright day!
We needed a bright, focused light for doing puzzles. This lamp is perfect with options to use as either a flood light or spot light. Its slim design did not require us to rearrange the furniture to set it up!
Terrific Focused Beam Floor lamp
Mostly use for reading. Makes it a lot easier on my older eyes. I like that the bulb is easier on energy. I can use my light in bed without it bothering my husband while hes lying in bed. I had one of the very expensive broad spectrum lamps with the much larger buld. I couldnt find the correct bulb and balast to replace the burned out one. What a waste!
Very nice -works well
works very good for reading light. It fits nicely behind couch with very little space.
Great Lamp, much more than what I expected. Sorry I hadnt purchased one sooner.
My best Christmas present this year!
This lamp is easy to use and best thing you need to own if you are reader. Easy to transport from sofa to a chir wherever you want to read. I am surprise how easy it is to see my books even in the dark room.
Perfect....as well as good looking
Reading or needlework it is excellent. I do love the adjustable beam. The on off switch is easy to operate as well as conveniently placed. The two tone finish is elegant in taste. I have no comments that arent great.
I love this lamp, and am ordering a second one.
Perfect Floor Lamp
I wanted a floor lamp that isnt an eye sore against my nice furnishings. This one is perfect, barely noticeable, heavy base, and it gives excellent bright light for reading, sewing, working on hobbies, etc. I give it the highest rating.
The lamp is great for reading and providing natural light in a dark apartment during winter.
I use this lamp every evening to read and play word games while my husband watches TV. The beam focuses only on what I am looking at and doesnt bother him. I plan to use it for knitting too. Wish we had bought this years ago!
Second time around.....
This was the most eagerly anticipated item on my Christmas gift list, and my sister ordered it for me. I could hardly wait to get it home (as I grow older, I find that a bright reading light is the thing to have).
When I returned home and opened up the box, I was dismayed to find that one of the four tubes that screw together to make up the stand, had been machined incorrectly and one threaded end was askew.
I called Sharper Image and after 35 minutes on hold, the rep told me that she would call the manufacturer to see if any problems with the product had been encountered previously. She came back on the line to tell me she would email me a return shipping label with instructions on how to return the item. She also advised that once the lamp had been received, they would ship me out a replacement. (I naively expected that they would send me a replacement immediately!)
Once I received the instructions, I was a little put off by the strict requirements imposed for return of an item. The lamp was all snugl
The best light for reading, doing paperwork....... weve ever bought. Using it disturbs no one else within vicinity, not to mention lessens eye strain one ends us with after using other lamps.
If you are thinking about it, do yourself a favor.
Bright Spot Light
This product fits the bill very nicely for providing bright light to a small area. It meets its advertised description and is reasonably priced. I use it to provide light to sheet music placed on a keyboard where the room light is dim. It would clearly also be usable for providing light to the pages of a book, as shown in the advertising photo.
Just what Ive been looking for...
My husband is a paraplegic and is in bed most of the time. We tried different lamps, etc. to give him enough lighting to read in bed. Because he is in a hospital bed, its hard to even clip a light somewhere on the frame. I saw this lamp and decided to give it a try as a Christmas gift -- he absolutely LOVES it! It is exactly what we were looking for and every time he reads, he comments how excellent the lighting is. I cant recommend this light enough -- thank you for carrying such an excellent product.
Use lamp for reading. The best reading light I have ever seen!!
First I bought one, then two more
I need bright light for any close work or reading. This has been just what I was looking for. After seeing mine, a friend who is an artist ordered one for himself.
Just the right size
Convenient height for reading. Easily fits in a tight place. Switch is at a convenient height. The light beam can easily be changed from partial flood to small precise light which is nice for close-up work. The adjustable swivel neck is a nice feature. Very attractive, sturdy light.
I am always involved in close work that requires illunination..this FOCUSED LIGHT provides that bright, natural light without annoying and possibly dangerous HEAT...while I am always aware RE: the cautions listed when using this lamp,I find the degree of illumination and the length of time I am able to use the lamp just awesome for the cost...also extremely easy to put togather!!! Thank you, Lynn
beautiful lamp, excellent performance
This beautiful reading lamp lets me keep the overhead lighting low, the fireplace on, while reading on a winters evening. The simple on/off switch, zoom focus for the cool LED lighting, and ample flexible arm offer complete functionality. A great addition to our reading/fireplace room!
My wife loves it!
My wife is a great knitter and she says the focused, non harsh light this gives off is perfect for her close work.
This light is a jewel!
I use this lamp to do handwork and reading in the great room. It provides light that is easy on my eyes without disturbing others. Whether it is sewing, drawing, reading or crafts, the natural Iight can be finely focused, and makes my hobbies all the more enjoyable.
The design of the lamp is beautiful and takes up very little space in the room.
Great addition to your reading chair.
Easy to assemble and very sleek design. Wont be obtrusive in the room. Focused light makes for easy reading and doesnt bother others in the room. Nickel finish should fit with any décor.
a very well thought out lamp. easy swit
The focus light is GREAT!
The light has provided a compact floor light to be used for reading. It does not distract from the decor and it can be adjusted for user.
The price was very resonable
excellent product at a good price
over shoulder reading and focused light for detiled work. Small form factor with esdy adjustments. 50 % less than anything near compatible at lighting stores. May look to modern for some or those that dont like tje daylight white light effect versus yellow incsndescent. Especially good for aging eyes.
excellent mobile lamp
Focused Beam Natural Light Floor Lamp
Need extra lighting for my knitting and needlework….especially at night. This was the answer. gave me the extra focused light beam that I was looking for.
Its a great lamp
The lamp makes design on our wall that accents our wall art. Its gives out impressive light.
First one broke during assembly. Second one works OK, but the light is hot and uncomfortable.
Great specific purpose light
This light is just as described. A useful focused beam light that is great for reading or detailed hobby work. I bought this for my wife for her needle point. Yes it is very bright white, which takes a bit of getting use too. For those who write that they are disappointed in the light output for "room lighting"....read the description. Thats not what its for. Even when you spred the light circle to its 36-inch max, it will still only light within that circle, which is actually quite impressive. Because of this, it doesntd isturb other people.
excellent in both look-lighting and conv
see example listed above
perfect bedside light for reading!!!
We use the lamp for reading in bed. The focus is such that it doesnt bother your spouse if he/she wishes to sleep. Good light and perfect fit between our bedside tables and the bed. Not very conspicuous. We also have decorative lamps on the bedside tables, but they were not bright enough. This filled the bill without detracting from the decorative lamps.
Performs exactly as described
This is a great reading light. The compact size does not interfere with room décor. I like how you can change from a narrow to wide beam of light.
I was surprised that you could not replace the light, but according to the life of the bulb, it will probably out-live me.
Best gift ever!
After 49 years of giving gifts to my husband, I finally got something that he actually uses and loves! Its perfect for the tv room, right next to his recliner where he can see to operate the small remotes or increase the spotlight to eat by. Im thinking of buying one for next to the bed (for me)!
Unobstructive lighting, takes small amount of space with excellent lighting. Easy on the eyes, not bothersome to others.
works great for reading or working with small items
Sleek and bright
My wife and I each have one. The assemble of the light is easy. The light spot to flood variance is excellent. The gooseneck adjustment means no glare for other person sitting next to you. We use dimmers a lot and wish this one had one. We find them much better than traditional reading floor lamps.
Best Lamp for Knitting and Needlework
This is a great lamp for fine detail work such as needlework or knitting. It is a compact, functional style that works fine with my living room decor. Ive been searching for just the right task lamp for a long while; Im so glad I found this one from Sharper Image!
Love the focusing!
I wanted a floor lamp that would not give off so much light that I couldnt read in my bedroom reading chair at night while my wife is trying to sleep. This lamp is exactly what I needed. It is very focused so that I dont have to light up the entire room, and it gives me the option to widen the focus if I need it. Perfect!
Just the right amount of light
I use it to read or work on laptop while my wife is watching TV. Light source does not interfere with brightness of TV viewing.
Solid flexible lamp
It seems like a lot of money up front, but its so flexible, it can replace several other lamps. Its solid, so stays in place, but very easy to move. Great light quality.
takes up so little room
Let There Be Light
This floor lamp is just the ticket for dark areas and areas that need bright light. It requires assembly, but the assembly is quick and easy. I got one to put next to a piano bench, where there is no place to put a piano light or a wall light. Liked it so much that I ordered two more, to set up next to a chair in the living area and next to my home office desk. It provides intense light. However, even at its widest setting, it projects light to only a small area. Still, whether it is reading a book, working on a craft project, etc., the area is more than adequate and the light is brilliant, bright and intense.
Cool Floor Lamp
Easy to put together. Very attractive and compact for living room use. Wonderful color light, easy to read with, and versatile. Only minor complaint we have is the gold color ring. We would have preferred it to be stainless like the rest of the lamp. We think it detracts from the elegance of the lamp.
Big light in a small package
I use the light to knit in front of the tv. The focused beam doesnt disturb my husbands tv viewing or leave a glare on the tv screen. It is really easy to maneuver the pin point of light where you want it and the on/off switch is nicely located and easy to use. The light doesnt heat or burn my hands or the surrounding area like other task lights.
The only things from me giving this 5 stars is that the plastic weighted base under the housing is uneven so the lamp doesnt sit flat on the floor. And, after a few minutes of use the focusing head heats up so that changing the focus needs an oven mitt.
This is a great floor - reading lamp. Bright light that can be adjusted from wide to pinpoint. My concern is about the bulb not being able to be replaced. The specs. read that it will last up to 50,000 hours, so the lamp will probably be out of date before the bulb goes bad
" A book readers delight"
Makes a great gift . Easy to assemble. Can move easy to different rooms when needed. " A book readers delight" .
Very Impressed with this Beautiful Lamp!
I use this lamp to illuminate the music when I am playing the piano. The room did not have adequate lighting, and this lamp completely solves the problem by focusing the light right where it is needed. It is easy to use, easy to move, and doesnt take a lot of room. It is also very attractive!
Focused Beam Natural Light Floor Lamp
Finally found a simple, attractive floor lamp for reading at an affordable price.
Not well constructed
I bought one for a friend and he seems to like it. I bought for myself and the switch broke after three days. It is still usable but very disappointed in the craftsmanship.
Happy with purchase
I ordered 2 lamps right away, thinking that I would like the product. And I am glad I did! elegant design, excellent focus and control, easy to put together. The only drawback was discovering that its impossible to replace the bulb! so hopefully it will last for years. In spite of that, I am still thinking about ordering another one as I am finding other places in the house where I could use this kind of light.
Well Designed Light
I thought about buying this light for awhile. Finally I decided to buy it for my husband as a Christmas gift. He was having trouble reading with our regular lamps. This light, with its easy adjustments has worked wonders for him. He can now read without having to hold the paper closer to the lamp. We are both very happy with it and are thinking about buying another for my parents.
Just what I was looking for
I was looking for just this kind of light for reading - this provides great reading light without having to deal with big overhead room lighting.
Stylish yet Functional
There is nothing better to use than this light for for reading. Lessens the strain on the eyes and directs the light just on on page. Love that the beam is adjustable. I can see where this light would be great for artists as well, since this is the type of light that shows true colors.
We use this light for reading in bed
So Good I had to get another
This is the second Focused Beam lamp I have purchased. The first was for my mother to have beside her chair. It makes reading and doing handwork so much easier having the proper light. I purchased one for beside my chair because I found that having directed light was less invasive to others in the room; especially those watching TV.
Focused beam works great
Use at night to read.kind of pricey but made very well,
worth trying again
Unfortunately, the lamp that we initially received was defective. The first piece of the stem had a flaw in the threading so that it could not thread into the next piece of the stem. We easily sent it back to Sharper Image. We did take a good look at what the lamp before we boxed it back up to return it and really liked what we saw. It had a very heavy base so that its not going to tip over. Easy and convenient on/off switch. And the light gave pinpoint to large illumination as promised. So we are ordering another with the realization that sometimes defects just happen. We think well be pleased next time.
Just perfect, sleek and sophisticated
This looks perfect next to my recliner in my condo. It is sleek and handsome and does not take away from some beautiful oil paintings, it is unobtrusive and gives such a great light. I use it for a reading light and love the fact I can taylor the focus. Superb!
Terrific lamp. Great size and intensity
my husband is thrilled with the amount of light generated by this attractive and very compact floor lamp.
I love this lamp!
This is the perfect lamp to place beside a chair or couch. The ability to adjust the width of the (projected light) beam is a great feature. I especially like the flip (on-off) switch. The switch designs makes the lamp a perfect item for those who are unable to turn a traditional knob!
Just what I was looking for
Provides great lighting for reading late at night
Exactly what I wanted.
Reason , jigsaw puzzles, needlework
This is the ideal gift for someone who
Ideal for someone who reads a lot in bed
A Lamp to Read By
Is excellent for reading, task lighting and conserves energy. Unobtrusive design makes it blend well with most home and office environments.
I love this lamp.
I love this lamp. The light is very bright but can be focused so it doesnt shine all over the room. Great for doing crafts.
I needed a good light to knit by. This light is wonderful! I couldnt ask for anything more. I L O V E that I can decide where and how much light to focus.
I would recommend your product to anyone who is looking for a good task light.
Nice lamp, the light could be brighter and expand wider.
Love this lamp.
I love this lamp. It is very bright and I like that you can adjust it. I just bought 2 more.
Loved it so much I bought a second one
My wife needed a light for her cross stitch work, weve tried all kinds and none were satisfying until I tried the Focus Beam Natural Light. We were so impressed I bought a second one.
I bought this powerful lamp for reading. The small light is perfect for reading or other activities. I like the minimum adjustments required to position the lamps light in the area of focus. Im so happy I bought it!
Wonderful Reading Light
Recently had eye surgery and this was just the type of light I was looking for since Im an avid reader. Love the focus feature for when Im working on my needle crafts or snipping the pets nails.
Love this lamp
I use this lamp all the time. It is beside my chair and I like the way the light beam can be adjusted. Great for reading or doing crafts.
Very bright floor lamp
Easy to move around.
Good light, good night
Used for reading, writing and arithmetic
Focused Beam Natural Light Floor Lamp
Ive been looking for quite a while for a lamp to work my jigsaw puzzles. I finally came across this lamp, and I love it! You can work the whole puzzle at once, or narrow the beam and work on a smaller section at a time.
Best reading lamp I have ever purchased!
Perfect for my night time reading!
I would buy this product again.
Its a gift for an artist. Its easy to use and move about the room. It can stand next to her easel or desk. The adjustment beam is so easy to use and spot light what it is you are working on.
I would like to see the price a little lower, but I would still purchase this item without it being lower.
Great Overhead Lighting
My husband doesnt like the lamp light that reflects in the T.V. at night. I do a lot of paperwork while watching T.V. and when I saw this lamp I thought this would solve our problem. He was very please as was I. It provides bright, direct light, without a glare on the television.
Efficient, Stylish & Quite Functional
This very remarkable item is convenient, efficient and quite helpful whether your eyes are perfect or 60 years old. I have had torn and detached retinas in both eyes and this item is truly a technology gift from God. The color of the light is delightful on the eyes and more conducive to allow one to more easily read newspapers, books, magazines, prescription bottles, user manuals, do tedious work or even see crumbs on the carpet or the computer keyboard. I used to need a magnifying glass for reading fine print. Now I just flip the switch on this great investment and adjust the beam to how intense the brightness is that I need.
The gooseneck allows for easy adjustment of the angle and height. It is virtually effortless to adjust the light for either room illumination, reading or other close up work. And the natural light, which reminds me of the white light of headlights in newer cars, illuminates our large living room quite well. The unit does not get hot, but do not take my word for it until y
Perfect for personal reading
Love it. Perfect at my loveseat.
Wonderful reading lamp!
I use this lamp for reading throughout the day while I work. I love its light weight, flexibility and natural light.
Great reading light
My wife uses this reading lamp at night so not to disturb me. So far, this is a super product.
I need a focused light source because the lamp lit room is not enough to read. This lamp serves this purpose. Also easy to move from room to room and does not require much space.
Wonderful reading light for the bed
I found that my bedside lamp did not throw light exactly where I needed it, so use this floor lamp behind the headboard. I can focus the light right on my night time reading, and the switch is near the top (not on the floor like some models) so I can turn it off without getting up. I tried a clip on model once, but it was messing up the wood of the bed. Very happy with this lamp. However, I think it is very strange that the bulb cannot be replaced in a lamp of this price. I am against this kind of "disposable culture," but bought the lamp anyway. I hope in future models this can be remedied.
Unobtrusive lighting, easy on the eyes, no glare. Compact design allows for ease of use without being in the way.
Works well on items such as books and newspapers easy to focus light directly to the reading material
This is great for knitting or weaving. The light is adjustable in area so one can focus on small area or large. It will be used for knitting while watching TV without disturbing my partner! I can focus on a small area for good light on any weaving project. It is just what I wanted!
Ive looked for a lamp for years to work on my jigsaw puzzles. Nothing was quite satisfactory until I got one of these lamps! I can light up the whole puzzle Im working on, or narrow the beam to do closeup work. I LOVE IT!!!!!
