A team of renowned designers, including George Kovacs himself, Karim Rashid, Alecia Wesner and Rachel Simon, have designed a wide selection of wall sconces, pendants, ceiling lights, bath lighting and table and floor lamps, sure to fit in to any modern decor.
I was disappointed as the lamp was not what I had ordered and the shade was damaged.
The George Kovacs swing-arm lamp replaced a similar model. I particularly wanted a 3-way switch and that was the reason I ordered from YlLighting since your online description specified a 3-way bulb. When the lamp arrived, I hired an electrician to install it -- one day before a major holiday party at my home. Needless to say, I was terribly disappointed in its not having a 3-way switch but the lamp was installed and it was too late to change it. IN ADDITION, the chade has a small bubble in the plastic lining near the top, which shows up as a spot on the shade. While I love the lamp design -- that's why I chose this model -- I was extremely dissatisfied with the product you sent. And I would have returned it, had the timing been better.

Nice--but shade is not attached to fixture
Shade just sits on fixture--afraid that it would soon be damaged

Nice, but larger than expected
Wanted a wall-mounted bedside lamp, but found that this was too large. Worried that it that it would be hit and damaged while making the bed.

Looks nice--didn't like shade attachment
This lamp was larger than expected and the shade was not attached firmly to the lamp--returned because I was fearful of the damaging the shade and/or lamp.

Nice clean look, solid fixture.
A great feature that does not show in the image of this light is the inner frosted glass shade. This eliminates risk of glare, and is very attractive.

Classic Kovacs Reading Lamp
I was looking for a classic modern sconce, on an arm mount, with it's own switch to replace some bad sconces in the den in my new house. This fixture does the job. Well made, attractive, easy to adjust and a solid attachment to the wall. My only issue is the fabric shades were a little dented and crimped when they arrived, but overall they are very nice fixtures.

A VERY CLEAN FIXTURE, NICE FINISH, GREAT PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!
EASY TO ORDER, EASY TO INSTALL,BEST SWING ARM LIGHT FOR THE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Solid well built product. Relatively easy to install. The screws and the plastic anchors seem a little too flimsy to handle the weight and moment force of the lamp, particularly when the arm is fully extended. I substituted molly screws for a better grip on the wall (sheet rock).

Great look; Poor Quality
Beware of poor quality. I purchased 4 of these lamps 2 years ago and 2 of the sockets have failed. The manufacturer does not sell replacement sockets and refuses any adjustment citing their 1 year warranty.

We are very pleased with our Swing-Arm Wall Lamps and the lighting ambiance they supply for our master bedroom.
Lamps were easy to install and their appearance is polished and fits our eclectic decorating style. The cord covers look great and we are very pleased with the entire look the lamps provide.

Very handsome light
I have 2 above my bed. Great looking and beautiful soft light. Perfect for a bedroom. Easy to install. The picture on the site looks like the shade is white, however it is a linen color

Good Quality, Mid- priced light
We needed reading lights next to the bed and found these. Relatively easy to install and with the possiblility taking a 3 way bulb, can be used for multiple purposes. The cord cover is not too long ~18" and should you want to change the shade at some point down the road, it has a non-standard clip system. We are very happy with the lights

great timeless simple style for a reasonable price
This lamp is going into our newly remodeled bedroom, with a polished nickel bed. I think the brushed nickel adds a nice combination without going overboard with shiny metal. The thing I really like best about this lamp is its versatility. It fits into all sorts of decor, making it one of those pieces you can use to switch up the look between bedrooms if you get tired of seeing the same thing in a room.

We love our George Kovacs lamps !
How wonderful it is to be able to come into a room with the lighting we love! Even more wonderful was to be able to get these Kovacs lamps at a price we could afford. And, we were equally pleased that when they arrived, they were just what we anticipated; we were not disappointed with the quality (which is often the case when ordering a product online). The shades and the fixtures are exactly as they are pictured! And the installation was fairly easy. A great buy.
