Love it as an accent reading lamp. Very happy with this purchase. Great service & delivery

While the product is excellent in quality and functionality, the electric cord needs to be longer and/or there needs to be clear instructions as to how to disassemble the existing cord and replace it with a longer one.

The Brazo floor lamp is minimal enough that I'd seen it in a store before and not considered it for the lamp to go next to my Womb chair. Finally, one time a light bulb clicked in my head and I thought the thin, geometric design of the Brazo might be a nice contrast to the round fullness of the Womb, or any other large chair. I knew the quality of the Brazo was wonderful. A heavy base, adjustable height, even directional light. But, I was thrilled when I moved the lamp from its spot in the store and put it next to the Womb chair. It looked incredibly cool. Just like an odd couple that fits together perfectly! I love it! Thanks, Pablo.

cool style and excellent illumination

this was the perfect solution to lighting our spcial art & artifacts wall in lvngrm. It's quite large and filled w/all sizes of object d' artes. The brazo floor lamp does a spectacular job of lighting floor to ceiling and wall to wall with it's own range-of-coverage dial. AND it's on a dimmer switch! Beautiful design,balance and machining/must feel to appreciate.

I wish I had returned this, but it was so large that I just didn't. This reading lamp buzzes. It's not very loud, but if you're sensitive to sound, you'll hear it. I really think lighting should be silent. Also, the light quality is very white/blue, which I find uninviting. However, it stays cool and it's beautiful, so all is not lost.

A rich bronze finish, a green led, multiple adjustments, eye candy design,this is the total package.

Truly a work of art as well as a highly functional light fixture. I bought the black and it looks great adjacent to my Eames lounge chair: the black is an exact match to that used on the Eames pedestal base. This fixture has both the look and feel of precision equipment. Adjustments are smooth and stay solidly in the desired position. A close inspection reveals tiny grooves machined into the surfaces of the base, stem and arm. A wonderfully functional touch, as this eliminates fingerprints on the metal.
As to the quality of light. It has a cool fluorescent feel which may take some getting used to in a domestic setting. I adapted quickly, as it is less harsh than the halogen lamp I had been using. The control of the light is very precise as to placement and intensity: I usually have it dimmed well below maximum. Rock solid light, with no flicker at any light level.
Another review mentioned a buzzing noise. Perhaps he had a defective unit, as I have not noted noise at any setting.
All in all, I am very pleased and feel it is worth it's high price.

Well made, easy to assemble, great style and lighting, especially with dimmer and rotating shade.

This floor lamp is a beautiful design and functions beautifully. While it doesn't look like it should cost as much as it does it is the understated design which makes it unique. The fact that it doesn't monopolize the room is what I like the most.

After researching many reading lamps, this one has met all expectations. Aesthetically appealing and a perfect reading light. In addition, dealing with ylighting has once again proven it is an outstanding company. The service from beginning to end has been exceptional. (The designer was a huge help with the assembly and it was a pleasure to talk with him.)

LED lighting although expensive is, in my opinion the lighting of the future. It is cool to the touch and will outlast all conventional lighting. The floor lamp Brazo was delivered on time and was an easy setup. I am completely satisfied with Ylighting and my new Brazo floor lamp.

A very well designed product.

The first lamp I received had a damaged dimmer knob, so I needed to call in to get a replacement and ship back the damaged one. The replacement process went pretty smoothtly.
When I got the working replacement part everything worked as it should, and provided an elegant touch to my home decor.

Even more beautiful than in the pictures, and gives excellent light. Linking together two parts of pole was somewhat fussier than expected, but once they clicked into place, it was perfect.

This is the third Pablo lamp I've acquired; second of the Brazo series. Their build quality is first-rate. Pablo composes every aspect from the machined aluminum components to the transparent power cable. The LED lights' placement & diffraction lens creates a cool glow that works really well in a bedroom.

For the past few years I've looked for a reading light for the living room that is subtle and elegant, while at the same time provides good color light just where I want it - this is it. I purchased it in bronze and, even though a very modern design, it works well with Mission style furnishings.
By:Lucy C. , Homeowner (Buffalo, NY)
I was worried there would not be enough light for reading but there is plenty. The Dimmer and Shading functions are excellent. The Quality of the materials are great. All in all , wonderful design and funtionality. Which I could afford another one.

Great design and Function. The dimmer and adjustable shade are perfect.
By:John B. , Homeowner (Ann Arbor MI USA)
Beautifully machined and very functional, Brazo is an excellent reading light. It also looks quite elegant in a vertical position for mood lighting.

we have 5 pablo pardo lamps in our home. 2 brazo floor lamps, 2 brazo desk lamps and 1 link desk lamp. pablo's design is simply amazing and i can how he won an award for the brazo lamp series. i particularly like the bronze finish for our bedroom. the color work very well with a walnut floor color. many guests comment on how the simplicity of the lamp makes the room. yes, they are costly and never go on sale, however they are designed to work for 10,000 hours....which is a long, long time. i strongly recommend this lamp for anyone who appreciates the best in quality and design for their home.

The Brazo Floor Lamp is a very well designed (think Apple) LED floor lamp, somewhat expensive, but because it lacks realistic competition. Very glad I purchased it after saving money for it.
By:John J. , Designer (Los Gatos, California)
I looked for quite some time for the prefect light to locate next to my sofa. This lamp answered all of my requirements. Not only it is handsome extremely well made , the light is excellent and the design is in keeping with my modern minimal decor. The purchase on line was smooth as was the shipping. It arrived in just a few days in perfect condition. I could not have asked for more.
By:M.F. , Homeowner (New York, New York)
The lighting is a little cold, but it's LED of course. It's very adjustable in multiple ways, and has a low profile.
By:J.H. , Homeowner (New York, NY, USA)
I wanted a a lamp that was primarily for reading and the Brazo Lamp is perfect. I also wanted LED lighting because it is energy efficient and long lasting. The Brazo Lamp gives me that. It is very well made, easy to assemble and both elegant and unobtrusive which is important in a small apartment. And it has a heavy base which imparts great stability. I love it.

I bought this lamp and thought the design was quite beautiful which it is but I am throughly disappointed by this expensive lamps quality. From the day I got it the product never worked correctly the light works only intermittenly and when I complained the company gave me lots of advice on how to fix it but the fixes never worked and they refused to even have me send it back to them to see what the problem might be. Obviously they had heard of this issue with the LED connection before. It's now 2 years and the lamp still is nothing but frustrating I am ready to throw away a expensive lamp as I see no reason to continue being angry at what I now feel is very bad decsion on my part buying this lamp from a company who doesn't stand behind their product. If you purchase this beautiful lamp I hope you have better luck than I've had.

The Brazo lamp is not only exquisitely made, the light it produces is pure and white, renders colors beautifully and is cool to be under. The lamp has a virtually infinite degree of dimming. The simple shapes of the aluminum make it effortless to clean. Overall I'm extremely happy I bought it, and the price was just right,
By:Iceherinit , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
This lamp is exactly what I was looking for: pure glossy white all over, clean lines, minimalistic, and a cool LED glow. An unexpected but pleasant surprise was that the electrical cord and plug are a very neutral and subtle light gray color, which blends into the surroundings rather than detracting from the lamp.
By:Jenna , Homeowner (Arlington, VA)
Luv it! So beautiful! Will get a second one for the bedroom for sure!
By:C.J. , Homeowner (Miami)
Bought this fixture in the bronze finish. It is very well made (solid) and the bronze finish is an excellent choice for most decors. The dimmer is right next to the light source so it is easy to reach. The LED bulbs have sufficient brightness for most reading situations and the ability to swivel and direct the light bulbs allows you to direct the light source. An excellent choice where looks and practicality are important.

Purchased this for my home office; instead of the energy burning overhead lights I can now use this to illuminate my work area while still maintaining a very attractive appearance.
By:James D. , Designer (san francisco)
Purchased for my office. It is now placed next to my desk and gives off plenty of light, as well as being adjustable and directional. Well designed, stylish and very functional.

Brazi is ingenious. We have an Arts and Crafts house (1917) with mostly period appropriate furnishings, and not a lot of money. We broke the glass dome shade on a floor lamp we really liked. We looked for a few years for a replacement shade that would fit. Meanwhile, the company that sold our lamp and parts went out of business, as far as we could determine. No luck trying to find a replacement shade. And we did not want an incandescent bulb. So I decided to get a new lamp. After shopping around quite a bit, we decided that Brazo would fit, be stable enough not to get knocked over, and give proper light for reading. It is also an LED light and has all kinds of adjustments; adjustable height, adjustable focus, and a dimmer as well. It looks great (in the bronze finish) and works beautifully. Thanks to YLighting, we also got a good price and prompt shipping.

High-quality, beautiful lamp. Has dimmer switch and 360 degree rotating light piece (can direct the light in any direction). Surprisingly bright at full power. Would definitely buy this product again.
By:Bri D. , Homeowner (New York, NY, USA)
I am really satisfied with this purchase. The light looks perfect with my new remodeled home.

We have two of these and use them for years. Good products.
By:J , Homeowner (Boston, MA)
I wanted a floor lamp that would not call attention to itself. This is a very good looking lamp that would fit with a variety of styles. Assembly was very easy. Although I'm not a huge fan of the "newer" types of light bulbs, this one is fine. It helps with the need for more light with aging eyes.

It's a lovely sculpture in the living room, but it's very hard to adjust in such a was as to cover a reading area. If I move left or right, or up and down a few feet, my book is no longer lighted. I've used Koncept lights, and they seem to fill a larger area. There may be a downside to this wider spread, I don't know, but I find the Koncept easier to read byÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â¦though not beautiful like the Brazo. And of course all LED lights create glare if they point at all your way. But I truly love the light output for such little energy use.
