materials and construction are high quality. the desk lamp was so heavy, i could barely get it out of the box, which to me was a good sign. most products now a days, are flimsy and poorly constructed. its refreshing to find a company who not only represents the finest in high design product, but pays mind to detail and craftsmanship.
Downside? Leadtime. But ultimately, worth waiting for.

Our Spanish architect friend loved it; And hinted that he would like
one for his birthday, too.
We love the patina, and the weight.
It is a great gift for any gentlemans' desk.

...and, from the solidity, and simplicity of the manufacture, I feel sure it'll last forever. I'm a professional writer, I live and work at my desk, and over the past twenty five or so years I've gone through many supposedly well-made table lamps. Not only is the Dave Table Lamp a lovely object in and of itself, but it has a heft to that makes you sure it's the kind of furniture that will outlast its owner.

Since I have clients around it all the time I removed the cord, covered the portion between the top of the lamp housing and the arm in a woven charcoal fabric sleeve and then rethreaded the cord.
Otherwise a great lamp. The inner reflective shield throws a good soft light on low, but when turned up enough good even field to review plans, draw, or read under for hours.
I have one on my plan table in my studio. It's the light I leave on at night when I leave the room. A testament to the soft directed light it throws, that when I'm not there it's what I want people passing to see lighting my studio.

This is very unique and high quality lamp that makes a simplistic statment. I use it on the bedside and it's flexibility and two light levels is perfect. I think the base probably weighs 10 lb...it's not going anywhere. It did take a few weeks to arrive, but it looks like they're made to order. I have the polished nickel one and I like the mfg instructions to clean with a dry cloth only with no chemicals. I think this lamp will last longer than I will.
