Loved the color and style
Sharen M on Feb 21, 2018
I chose, what appear to be, solid-quality, brass, extendable wall fixtures for each side of the bed, to avoid having two floor lamps with large bases that take up valuable space between the bed and night tables. Another feature that works for me with this pair of fixtures - regarding ambient (mood) lighting for the bed area and wall when not using the lamps as reading lights - are the dimmer switches; the dimmer option is the component that sealed the deal - Julia

I've been looking for wall mounted plug in lamps in a brass finish, but all the options I've seen were too expensive for my budget. These looked great, and at an affordable price. I'm really excited to get them!

My son is finishing a small study room for my two teenage grandsons and I suggested plug in wall lamps instead of desk lamps, as they take up space on a small counter/desk. This is my gift to the new study.

A shopper on Feb 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These are designed to be plugged in.
I love the looks but am concerned with the quality and longevity. Can any owner comment on how they are holding up? By reading the reviews it seems like the flickering issue is due to user error. Thank you!

A shopper on Jan 24, 2018

jacq b on Jan 11, 2018

can you use incandescent light bulbs and if so, what is maximum wattage?

I ordered the lights and then ordered the cord covers later...they do not match the lamps are alot deeper antique brass and the covers are light brass? Is this the way it is or did I get a bad lot?
suzanne m on Dec 7, 2017

terrell d on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi - approximately 8-inches give or take, depending on the placement of the two arms.
In order to swing the light horizontally (left/right), do you have to loosen/tighten the screw on the plate every time?
Melisa C on Nov 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi - yes, you do need to adjust the screws by hand when re-positioning the light.
how close to the side of the bed do you hang these and how far above mattress?
suzanne m on Nov 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi - this is a hard question to answer. It all depends on the shape of your bed-headboard and how you sit-lie in bed. In general, however, we'd say that you want to install these slightly above eye level and to the outer edge of the bed. This will allow you to aim the light at reading material in such a way to prevent shadows falling across the pages. You'll have to experiment to find the best spot for you.
can these be hardwired?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi - these are plug-in designs, but you could have them hardwired to work with a wall switch. If you wish to do so, we recommend using a licensed electrician to do the work for you. Please note that altering the design means that these would no longer be covered by our warranty policy.
Hi there! The description of this lamp – which states that the lamp allows for "vertical up-down adjustment only"
and "does not swing left and right" – seems to contradict both the photos of the item and one of the answers already provided here. Can you please confirm that the lamp is able to swing left to right from the pivot point on the wall plate? Thanks!
Usra L on Oct 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My apologies for the misinformation. The lights are able to swing left to right at the pivot point attached to the canopy.
Can I use an LED bulb in this fixture?
Rohini K on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have included dimmable LED bulbs.

can the swing arm be removed?
nichole s on Sep 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, the swing arm cannot be removed.
Do they come with a brass 'plug' to plug the on off switch if they are hardwired and that switch is not needed?
kerri M on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The on/off switch is the little dial closest to the bottom, with the little grooves in it. It turns on/off and dims as well!
I live on the coast, where everything seems to corrode quickly. Of your two finishes,, which would be the most resistant to corrosion?
B L on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These lights are rated for indoor use only. Out of the two, the Antique finish will hold up better.
Hi in the photo of the plate it looks like the arm can turn at the connection side to side, out of the way from the dimmer switch. Could the lamp then possibly pull straight out from there if you turn at that connection?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The arm is adjustable 180 degrees left to right and is adjustable up/down from any of the angles.
Can these be hard wired?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello - These lamps can be hardwired, but we offer no kit to do so and must be done at your own discretion. Also, once modifications have been made, any warranty no longer applies.

Lots of WOW for $99 bucks!
Love my new lights!! The cords are long, plenty to hang on the wall, and then plug in. Plus they are clear, so they practically disappear on my white walls. Loved that I could install these all on my own, without an electrician (or my husband). The price is so much less than oodles of other lights that look pretty darn identical. I found many for $350+ for just one light. So happy to have stumbled across these.

Not the best quality
They are poor quality and one flickers and flashes off repeatedly. The adjustment dials are unstable.

Exactly what I had been seraching for!
Absolutely love these new lights. Instead of mounting them on the wall - my plan was to mount them on top of my bookcases - and they worked perfectly! I simply secured the mounting plates into the top of the bookcases (instead of the wall) and then adjusted the 3 segmented arms in the opposite direction. The long cords assured that I was able to hide the connection and the dimmability (is that a word?) was perfect since I only wanted a swash of light down across the shelves. Currently I am using LED bulbs (as that is all I had on hand), but I may switch them out for traditional incandescent bulbs so that the light will be a bit warmer. But I absolutely LOVE them - and for the price, THEY ARE PERFECT!!!
