I wouldn't use them if they were the only light source but effective as ambient lighting. Could tuck it behind a chair in a corner for example.
These lights are quite lovely! They add a nice ambiance to any room, It would be great if they were controlled via remote and/or if they could be somehow linked to each other. Otherwise, the construction and the light produced is wonderful.
I absolutely LOVE these lamps. We have a very large family room and the lamps we had didnt reach the whole room and the light didny seem natural. These lamps give off such a warm glow that filters through the whole room.
These lamps are exquisite! The lamps reflect a soft ambient light when aimed at the wall. The lights are dim-able and easy to adjust with the floor button. I am an artist and I ordered these to get the right kind of light without glare or making overhead shadows. These function like flattering photo studio fill lighting. They look terrific, very elegant and minimal. I am going to be ordering more now for home as well as working studio. I want another pair to put on the shelf that begins my library of books.
