This is a great lamp. I have two of them for bedside lamps. My family has them, as well. Others in my office have them. So, we ordered the micro version for our office desk lamps. They are today's classic. Everyone loves them.

I like the looks of the lamp and size. The light source moves easily and then stays where it is moved. For my desk it is the perfect light source. It has clean lines and is not obtrusive.

I bought two of these for bedside tables-- great directional lighting and classic modern design. Not cheap but you buy them for a lifetime. Highly recommend.

It's the perfect size for our George Nelson Swag desk. Minimal in design but emits great light! Plus, it looks fantastic and you just can't find a better price than on YLighting!

I got this lamp for my business but after unpacking and setting up this beautiful lamp it ended up on my night stand. Now I need to get another one and am imagining them in many more rooms. A nice surprise about the design is the small hole on top of the lamp shade. This shines just a little light on the ceiling in addition to beam of light below. I took a star away because you can't get a high efficiency bulb higher than a 40w equivalent for the micro model. I believe the next size allows for one.

lightweight, clean design, and generally just aesthetically pleasing. The lamp has perfect function for what I need. Well done and thanks!

easy to assemble upon arrival and a lovely table lamp

This is a smart looking and compact lamp that looks super on my desk next to my big computer monitor -- from a style standpoint, both complement each other in terms of the color. Just the right amount of light for the task at hand. Would recommend for office desks as well.

the micro is actually larger than the name suggests and works great by my bed. the lamp is of course a modern classic and looks and performs well. i gave it 4 stars because the feature that allows the lamp to swivel left and right from the base makes the lamp a bit wobbly. not a deal-breaker, but not the quality or design you'd expect for 3 benjamins.

I've wanted a Tolomeo for years due to its functionality: the ability to easily adjust the location of the lamp head with one hand, it's stability, and overall quality.
The lamp succeeds in all fronts. However, there is one thing I believe they should have changed with the Tolomeo Micro. This small lamp is likely used for focused lighting on a desk, but the Tolomeo design has a hole in the top of the lamp shade, through which fairly bright light escapes and glares out at you while sitting at a desk.
I just taped a quarter over the hole.

This is a great lamp, and I love the polished aluminum finish. The only thing I'm not 100% in love with is the bulb it takes (60W max candelabra base incandescent bulb ). I guess I've grown accustomed to the halogen light thrown off by other lamps and find myself preferring it. Nevertheless, it is a highly functional and very pretty lamp, and honestly we will probably be purchasing a second one for the other bedside table.

this is a great product.
Only thing I don't like about is the on/off switch.
Compare to its sleek design, swith itself is clunky.
By:Diane L. , Architect (boston, ma)
This lamp is timeless, and so classy. I absolutely recommend this lamp-It will add instant style to your home.

I have used the Tolomeo lamp as a desk lamp for years. Since I like the design, I chose the Tolomeo micro lamp as my night stand lamp. It is perfect. Looks great, works great, and I could not be happier. Unfortunately it arrived with a scuffed shade, but Ylighting sent me a replacement shade without any delay. I might try it with a wall mount.

Ylighting made the purchase very easy for us.

These Tolomeo lamps are a beautiful matte aluminum finish, but unfortunately the 7 inch base is shiny polished aluminum. It seems inconsistent and brings down the overall look.
By:Pennyroyal , Designer (Los Angeles, CA)
We have been looking for night table lights for some time. In fact, we had gone through two previous lights for this purpose and were not happy with them. The Tolomeo's size is perfect for side table or desk use. As an architect, I am very impressed with the design, both technologically and aesthetically. Also, YLighting was prompt and helpful.

The lamp isn't the best looking bedside tablelamp ever. Almost looks more like a desk lamp. However, it makes up for it's looks in reading light. I love it, my husband likes it alright.
By:Kelle C. , Homeowner (Park city, ut)
It was easy to assemble, and joints and knobs move smoothly/gracefully. It is beautiful. It looks a little bit small against my large desk and long wall of books, though? (And it was expensive!)

Tolomeo Micro Table Lamp is just what I expected: good looking and functional.

This is my second Tolomeo Micro Table Lamp. Very cool design. Perfect size for bedside table lamp.
By:Bugar Z. , Renter (New York)
A beautifully designed product that functions as well as it looks.
By:Susan G. , Homeowner (Chicago, Illinois)
Sleek, modern, and cool, the Tolomeo Micro Table Lamp is perfect for your work or home office. It looks great with our eames desk and gives excellent light. I highly suggest it if you need something clean and modern that won't take up too much deskspace.

The Tolemeo Micro Table Lamp provides perfect light for side table needs. Elegant, functional and unobtrusive this lamp is a handsome addition to any setting.

This is a great lamp! I bought it as a bed. Love it! It is beautifully designed, easy to maneuver, and timelessly fashionable!

I've bought a Micro and a Mini, and both are great. The good design fits well in either contemporary (gift to another house) or more traditional rooms.

This is a VERY small version of the Tolomeo. Like everything else in the Tolomeo line, it is beautifully made, strong, handsome, and super easy to assemble. This works great right next to my computer as a task lamp, but I will order the Mini as a bedside lamp in order to get more reach from bedside table to book.
By:Frances R. , Homeowner (New York, NY)
too small and wanted to make an exchange for next size up, but could not do that. had to return first ones and am still waiting for the RA.
By:Ann P. (new york)
What is wonderful about this lamp is that it's size doesn't command my bedside table. It has a perfect amount of light for reading and it adjusts to your position with it's flexibility. I would recommend this lamp to anyone. It is stylish and functionally outstanding.

Solid construction, good task lamp.

Beautiful and got in my house really fast !
By:Renata D. , Homeowner (tampa, fl , usa)
We have a small office which is bright and modern with a European flair. These lamps go perfectly with the look we want to convey. We've bought them in the past and the bulbs last forever. Especially when it starts getting dark early these add light and warmth to the office. Very easy to setup, store, and start using.

Great light - simple design, classic look, and overall a good price compared to "high end" options. The standard color goes with anything. Looks great on any desk etc.

Purchased as gift for my daughter. She loves it. Easy to attach base, great flexibility

The micro table lamp has been a perfect fix for an area in my kitchen where there was insufficient lighting from my ceiling lights. It is bright and takes up little space, creating a nice circle of light on my counter where I like to prepare food. Excellent form and function.
By:Lena L. , Homeowner (Cardiff by the Sea, Calif. USA)
If you need a lamp of this type and size, it's terrific. Very very well made, and beautiful.
What more can you ask? Shipped in a very sturdy 'box within a box,' with no hint of damage or mishandling.
Great little lamp for on a table or desk. Go for it!
By:Robert , Homeowner (Los Angeles)
This is the perfect reading/task lamp. I am very happy with it.

We love this lamp for our bedside reading--it flexes every direction and provides warm, focused lighting for close tasks and reading.

I have purchased this lamp over and over again for my home, offices, clients, etc...and not only is it a timeless design but most functional, fitting many locations, requirements, and decor.
