Made with sturdy yet lightweight materials, the Birdie Reading Floor Lamp is dynamic in the infinite positioning possibilities depending on the color. This floor-standing lamp has a different personality: in white, can be discreet and almost invisible, but in red, orange or grey it becomes more of a prima donna capable of playing the starring role of a room.

Roberto Palomba, along with Ludovica Plaomba, created Palomba Serafini Associati in 1994.

This unique and personal approach makes them particularly sensitive to issues of function and the need to create long-lasting products, removed from the uniformity of momentary trends.

Perfect twist on a classic shape!
 

The Birdie has been a great choice for ambient as well as task lighting in my living room, with quite bright light at the highest setting and the ability to dim by tapping the end of the "perch" portion of the lamp, which is kind of fun. While the polycarbonate shade and white-lacquered metal stem make it very modern, the shape is actually quite classic, making it a great choice for many types of decor.

The lamp is also quite sturdy, with a heavy metal base that attaches with screws. The shade has a shiny glass-like finish and looks very high-quality. When the light is on it has a pleasant warmth and looks more off-white, although the lamp is a bright white when off.

Note that 1) because the stem of the lamp is one complete piece, it comes in a HUGE box; 2) the light bulb is not included and is a bit hard to find.

A lovely floor lamp
 

As mentioned in other reviews, the Birdie lamp shade is fashioned out a polycarbonate resin. As such, the "plastic" look to shade may strike some as strange. In reality it is quite sensual. It also speaks to Foscarini's expertise with alternative materials (see, for example, the Twiggy lamp).

When combined with the thin, reed-like, metallic stem, the lamp is elegant and voluptuous. The dimmer on the branched portion of the stem is easy to use and looks to be high quality. And in the world of designer lamps, frankly the price isn't outrageous.

The only downside (and the reason for the absent star) was the 13 week wait to receive the lamp.
