Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ribbon of light It looks as beautiful as I had envisioned, lighting up a dark corner. Light sculpture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option for ambiance and reading. We are using this lamp in our office. It's perfect with the built-in dimmer for soft lighting and reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Simplicity 72" lamp fits neatly in alcove, corner or niche. Dimmer provides much desired flexibility re: illumination. If floor isn't level and carpeted this may not be the lamp for you. Height decreases stability. Otherwise quality material and design is exceptional for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't Disappoint--Elegant Excellent value for an elegant, minimalist floor lamp. The 72" is not for high traffic areas, especially if floor is not level and/or if there are children or pets about. Best resting on hard surface. The 72" is less stable than 48" Cortina. However it emits more light. Also softly illuminates ceiling. The dimmer makes this lamp versatile: augment overall lighting or provide soft glow for a more intimate effect or when only a little light needed at dusk. When unlit or turned on, Cortina is like sculpture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love the the simple lines and dimmer controlled light We needed a tall, simple table top lamp for a narrow cabinet in our stairwell. The lamp fits the space perfectly and lights up the wall with a pleasing delicate pattern. It works well against our pale taupe wall and adjoining framed pictures. I appreciate the fact that the shade is not heavy glass but acrylic. It is very modern and very elegant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful addition to our home We bought both the 48 in. and 60 in. lamps and can't be more pleased with the aesthetics. They add a beautiful, modern look and a lot of light to our living room. Exactly what we were looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Accent Lighting We had previously purchased the 60 inch Cortina. During the recent lighting sale we finished off the corner by adding both the 48 inch and 72 inch Cortinas. The corner is beautiful and accents the photo wall as additional pieces of art. Love them. (As an interesting testimony, we had them lit up while handing out candy for Halloween. It was amazing how many kids commented..."cool house"!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Purchased two 72 inch Cortina lights. They are stunning. There are no defects/imperfections in the plexiglass or material (which really surprised me). They are much sturdier than I expected. It is formed plexiglass on top of a metal bottom. The light diffuses nicely and makes a great pattern on the ceiling. The material is on three sides (opposite sides - front and back, and on the top.) The side view is clear. A possible negative is that I am not sure how easily dust and pollen will come off of it. Everything gets covered in yellow with pollen in the Spring where I live.... This is an awesome light!

What color is the metal base? Is it silver, like aluminum?

Asked by: Debor
This fixture features a cast iron base, which is a darker silver color, but it is not bright shiny silver like a chrome finish would be. Visit the "specifications" tab on this product page and download the PDF manufacturer spec sheet by clicking on the provided link. This will pull up some additional information like dimensions and wattage that may be helpful as well. Thanks for reaching out to us! Parin YLighting Customer Service

Has Pablo Designs found a suitable LED substitute for the PAR 16 halogen bulbs?

Asked by: Manuel
Thanks for your interest in this design. Currently this fixture is not made to be compatible with an LED module or bulb. The electrical components are meant to only support incandescent wattage at this time. Feel free to give us a call at 866.842.6209 if you want to explore some alternatives that do support an LED option. Thanks for reaching out to us! Parin YLighting Customer Service

Does this lamp have a cord to plug into an outlet? Pablo cortina lamp 24 in. Can it be used on the floor for an up light to light a dark corner?

Asked by: markgab
Certainly! This does plug into an outlet and is meant for use a table or floor lamp. As long as there is not anything covering the top or hovering just above the fixture such as curtains, then this should light your corner with perfect style! Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service

How can I get the wrinkles out of the fabric?

Asked by: Desamaya
Hi there! The wrinkles should relax with time. If you are finding that they don't relax over time you can gently steam them out, but be advised that heavy or over steaming may damage the acrylic behind the fabric. Feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 to discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else. Thanks for reaching out! Stephanie, YLighting Team

Will the 24" be a good reading light on a bedside table? Does the light diffuse from the side also? In other words, since it's not directional will the Cortina give off enough light for reading in bed a couple of feet away? Thanks!
