If you live in a suburban apartment, I believe it is mandatory that you have one of these lamps.


#3

What’s a Flooer Lamp? Sounds Scandinavian.

looks like a good choice for recreating a warm ambiance. the tinted shade should cast a “warm white” glow regardless of light bulb used.

too bad i strictly prefer “cool white” shades that can project colors in the 5000-6100k spectrum.


#5

So is this lamp intended more to provide additional lighting for an alcove/dark area of a room than as the primary light for a room?


#6

with 150 watt max capacity i’m sure if you’re running 2 75w CFLs you can light a small-medium sized room pretty well. i’ve seen less wattage-capable floor standers like these light up rooms.

now if you’re doing hardcore textbook cramming or assembling a 3000-piece puzzle, i’m not sure a single one of these is your cup of tea. perhaps more tea for your optometrist?


#7

I believe it will only hold one light bulb.


#8

oops, there went my reading comprehension.

yeah, a 150 watt bulb should be bright enough i’d think. though if you went CFL that route, it’ll get expensive and at that price point i’d consider much more permanent/energy efficient means by LED.


#9

Is the stem of the lamp black?


#10

I am no lamp expert, but 59.99 seems expensive for a lamp on Woot


#11

Traditionally, these lamps were designed with Halogen bulbs. So that you could also cook hot dogs on them.


#12

We bought that exact same “custom” lamp last year at Costco. Big fans here, I’m in for another to match. We use an LED bulb in it but ours is a 3-way bulb type lamp so you have to click twice before the bulb works.


#13

Is the base round with a square underneath, or is that just the display? It’s hard to tell if that’s part of the lamp.

@ the writer this week:

I am smiling with complete and utter glee.

… that is all.

… The exact pixelness between the “light on” and “light off” pics lend themselves to a .gif

It says it is bronze


#16

I’ll admit.

I partially made this just to see if I could.
