I got this as task lighting. But I was in doubt since most LED lighting looks bright but does not have enough wattages. But as soon as I opened the box, all might doubts disappeared. The design itself is amazing. It is pretty bright and diffuser reduces hard spots. The only disappointing part was the base that had a lot of scratch marks which seemed to have occurred due to plastic air bags during shipping. However, ylighting took great care of it and the replacement part is on its way. I love my kelvin lamp.

The Kelvin Table Lamp is everything it promises and more-great design and functionality...swipe the top of the lamp-it turns it on (to low or high). Swipe it again and it turns it off...sort of the "Apple" of the lighting world! It compliments my modern interior...a pleasure to look at.

Is a beautifull table lamp, good manufacture, and modern.
this is an awesome light. i love how it is turned on, dimmed, and then off by gently stroking the light head with one's finger. the LED light is not at all cold. and the adjustability is excellent. we are contemplating getting another one.

I have been looking for handsome bedside lamps that give good light (that's the hard part!) since we moved into our new home last year. Some look good but give lousy light, most are light, junky, poorly made. The weight of the bases, the quality of the finish, the fluid mechanism, the extremely cool switch (you just wave your hand over it), and most important, the fabulous illumination; totally worth it.

I saw this lamp and hesitated buying it because of the price. When I finally pulled the trigger, I was thrilled. (And probably ruined for Ikea lighting forever . . . ) This is the most beautifully built, awesomely engineered, incredibly functional lamp we have ever had. We are using them bedside. The ultra-heavy base means they don't wiggle around or fall over. Even the fact that the LED doesn't throw off heat is wonderful. But the best thing is the cool switch that you just wave your finger over.

great light -- stylish and gives terrific focused light

The light that this LED desk lamp gives off is nothing like the harsh white that you've probably seen before - it is warm and must cover more spectrum. The lamp itself is a clean, purposeful design and is an instant classic. It moves and adjusts smoothly and has every indication that it will last a long time. Highly recommended.

This lamp has a very high quality, warm color. I'm impressed with the lacquered finish which looks great in real life. I bought white but I'm sure the black is nice as well. The only downside is that you have to touch the switch 3 times to turn it off - it doubles as a dimmer. Otherwise a great lamp and a quality product.

The product is great. It's a good quality build. It looks light and minimalist, but it's surprisingly sturdy. You can tell that an effort was made to ensure quality; even the packaging is nicely done! The only thing I might have done differently was choose the cool lighting. The warm lighting too far off white.

Very nice design, but the light produced by this light had a slightly odd yellow tinge to it. It was esp. noticeable compared to the tungsten light in my old desk lamp.

clean and simple. perfect in my bedroom

Looks great but electrical connection is very fragile. Once broken, there is no repair part and the company will not fix it. You just threw away money. Very bad service.
