        This lamp is just so nice. The style and quality are great. The walnut ball on the pull is a nice accent. Everything is well-constructed. Easy assembly as well. This lamp is on my Eames low storage unit in my office and it is just the right size and the right style.

        My order shipped out on Monday and arrived on Wednesday. Great!

          One of the Room and Board design consultants suggested the George Nelson cigar table lamp and we liked it so much, we ordered the pear table lamp as well - they are on matching tables at the ends of a R&B contemporary sofa and look wonderful, especially because they are similar in style, yet different shapes. We are now considering a George Nelson mobile for the entry hall.

            We have been searching for the right lamp to fit our mid century decor. We tried others that just weren't right but this lamp is perfect. I was hesistant to spend the money as it was pricey in comparison to others but it is worth it.

              We bought these lamps to sit on a long hairpin-legged bookshelf that I built in an area that transitions between the living room and dining room. The lamps are classic and go with everything; they are also surprisingly substantial feeling. Modernica does a great job with packaging the lamps to ensure that they arrive intact.

                  We placed the Nelson lamps on the bedside tables in the guest bedroom. They fit the space perfectly and accentuate the look we wanted. In fact, we may purchase another set for our master bedroom.

                  We've admired these lamps for quite some time. We found R&B offered it at a great price. Thanks.

                    I already had the George Nelson Bubble Pear lamp on one side of my bed. I needed another one on the other side, but I didn't want an exact match (I'm a bit eclectic like that). So, I went with this lamp. Couldn't be happier.
