i read for a living and the tab lamp gives me all the glow i need. i ust hope my kittens don't knock it over as they have the previous two.

I was concerned I may not like it, as I had gone to several showrooms before purchasing online and had not found what I wanted. However, I couldn't have been more pleased... The Tab Floor Lamp has a modern style, perfect for where I wanted it to go. It's functional and beautifully designed, provides light to read very nicely.
Plus, it was on clearance, great price!

This little lamp (its shorter than I imagined) is very versatile. I have one at a beach house where it provides a modern accent in a belgian-esque house, and one paired with an e15 sofa in the city. Well proportioned, seems timeless and of-the-moment both. Very happy.

This is a really nicely designed lamp. It looks great but from a practical perspective, I wish it were a bit brighter.
I purchased the floor lamp and the smaller table lamp. Both are beautiful and functional. The light is bright enough for reading as the focus is narrow. It does not extend like most "pharmacy" floor lamps but the fixed height is just right next to a reading chair of a couch as it feels very slender and unobtrusive. The finish is not a high gloss but it is definitely not mat; higher sheen than satin. Ours is next to the classic Eames chair and the lines of the lamp compliment beautifully the lines of the chair.

the tab is awesome. stylish and sturdy. i got my first one because my kittens kept knocking over my kovaks lamp and breaking it, i got my second becuase i loved the first so much.

I needed a modern reading lamp to sit alongside my lounge chair, and the Tab Floor Lamp definitely fit the bill. Overall, it's a great reading lamp with a pleasant warm lamp, and was a great deal from YLighting on sale.
The two things that stop it from getting 5 stars are:
1.) I wish it had a brighter maximum light, and a dimmer switch to control how much light I can see.
2.) Light switch should be integrated into the lamp, and not on a floor switch.

a very clean/minimalist design without being unapproachable - 'pop' modern. limited use as a bedside/reading light.

I wasn't sure how the Tab Floor Lamp would look, or whether it would cast enough light when we picked it out. It completely surpassed my expectations. It is very simple and elegant, while still being designed enough to hold its own in our very contemporary house. It sheds a ton of light, and only take up a little bit of room. Its perfect as a bed side reading lamp, but when the shade is still tilted up, throws light across my son's entire room. One thing to watch: its the perfect height for our son's bed, which is a little lower than average. If he had a taller bed, it might not be quite tall enough.

The design and use are simple, the light is very bright,Â surprisingly,Â and the appearance are clean on and off. Due to its relatively low height, it is probably best as a reading light for a lounge chair. We're adding an inline dimmer to take advantage of its potential as an ambient light.

I love my Tab Floor Lamp and I get a ton of compliments on it but I highly recommend that you look at the specifications of it to make sure it's exactly what you want. I didn't check before ordering it and it's a bit shorter than I expected it would be. Nonetheless, it's completely gorgeous and I think the height is perfect for my apartment.

Great height for a reading lamp.
High quality design & construction.
Would be better if it had an on/off switch at the head rather than cord.

In addition to the above comments, we think the base could be weighted slightly more than it is to avoid feeling as if it may tip over, and simply to feel slightly more substantial. Otherwise - perfect.

Nice and clean design with a good impact in our office. The problem is that it's too short.
Purchased two Flos tab floor lamps for my second home - very happily followed with the purchase of a third for my primary residence. Well priced for quality / style factors relative to comparable manufacturers. Only complaint - long delivery time.

The halogen light creates a very warm directed light that is good for reading chairside. Does not take up too much floor or visual space. A dimmer would be a nice feature.
