Before buying this, it's important for you to know that the power cord trails out of the adjustable tube, not out of the base. That gives the lamp a whole different look. If you're not putting this behind a chair, that loose power cord is just plain ugly. IKEA does that with their lamps -- exposed power cords -- and it looks cheap.
Second, even when you have this lamp adjusted to the lowest setting, when you pull the power cord using the knob, the entire lamp pulls over. Very poor engineering. It needs a much heavier base, or a better design.
Yeah, so as far as floor lamps go it was one of the cheaper ones, but for the price paid, I'd expect a little more.
