Very cool lamp.

A little mod, but not over the top. Fits nicely with my minimalist modern decor. Very wide shade (close to two feet). Casts a very cool orange glow. I'm using two 25W lightbulbs instead of the recommended four, and it's plenty. Very satisfied with the lamp and the price.

A classic! You won't be disappointed.

I have always wanted this lamp since I studied design in college. I bought the orange version and placed (4) 25w equivalent LED bulbs, equalling 100w (actually 18w) of light. The upper part of my room has a beautiful orange glow, while the lower part is well illuminated. The Nesso lamp is BIG, but that's part of the charm.

Great lamp and fast shipping

The shipping from ylighting was very quick (3-4 days). The lamp is very well made and, equipped with four 25-watt bulbs, produces plenty of illumination. The shade is larger than one might imagine, so make sure you have room for it. The style of the lamp is versatile enough to go well in a living room, bedroom, or office. I had to bend some of the electrical wires connecting the bulb sockets in order to clear the threads that enable the shade to screw onto the base. That process is fraught with nerves, since I would hate to break the lamp before getting to try it out. Everything worked out fine though. I'm very happy with the purchase.
