We are using our lights in a newly built screen porch over a daybed. They are PERFECT. We can hook them from the rod along the screen tops or hang them lower beside the bed or allow them to frame the screen door OR set them on the end tables. Just right all around!

It's my second may day lamp and I find it great for the outside. I don,t have light on my patio so it's the perfect lamp to bring in and out and hang it from the umbrella.

these are great versatile lamps - they are mobile and functional like a shop light - but cool and modern. super light, hence easy to hook and hang on anything.

The perfect light for the male (and it probably is male) person in need of an intelligently designed, versatile, masculine lamp.
Almost tool-like in its approach, it would be great in a large loft space, or perhaps for working on your classic BMW 2002 without getting eye strain.

The lamp is wonderful...
- manageable (cable)
- cool (resembles like construction area safe lights)
- bright (with a a 60W compact fluorescent, you'll say it's too bright!)

The light is one of the more affordable amongst Flos lights.
It means most bang for buck!
You can use this on the floor, on the table, hang it from the ceiling, etc...
I would just get one to keep as a safety light at home!

Bought a couple of these for the house and have been quite happy. We've used them as table lamp, pendent lights, and right now one is hanging upside down from its shade, making it a wall sconce. I see two more in our future.

Friends are always commenting on how much they dig this lamp. Currently using it over the kitchen counter. And Ylighting was great. Thanks for the free shipping!

As an interior designer exposed to new and trendy objects , materials, designs and light fixtures everyday. The always admire the totalitarian aspect and design intelligently fused together in the Mayday lamp. Extremely flexible, from table lamp to suspension lamp or wall sconce. The workmanship is better than others costing hundreds of dollars. I plan to get a second Mayday lamp.

A very handy fixture, the cord and plug let you move it at will and hang it as you like. I have purchased two and plan on getting one more.

I bought a couple of these to use as side table lamps in my living room and they're just about perfect. They throw a lot of light through the shade, so they work well just sitting on a surface. The hook is a really nice touch, and I'm planning on making hangers for them so they sit more like conventional table lamps.
The construction is light weight but very sturdy. Even the insides of the sockets are well finished. The button is covered by a rubber dome and is delightfully tactile. I could see these taking many years of abuse. Plenty of cord to play with, so you could easily make these into floor lamps or hang them from the ceiling.

We use the May Day Table Lamp as a task light over our stainless steel kitchen island. It has an industrial, make-shift look that's perfect for our 40's era Cape Cod. This is actually our second May Day. The shade on the first one became brittle over time and fractured into small pieces one day. We like the design enough to put up with the hassle of replacing the lamp every 5 years.
