I chose this lamp because I am over 60 and it provides good task lighting, with a maximum 100 watt bulb. And it also gives ambient light with a transparent shade; and both of these features are the best combo for work and reading. Now I have the lamp. It is not a cheap lamp, but and it is it worth the money because not only is it practical it is aesthetically pleasing.
