          Customer comments about Nelson Lotus Cigar Table Lamp:

          I looked,for a long time for the perfect lamp that would be bolth beautiful and functional. I have it on a bar cabinet which sits between the kitchen and dining area of my kitchen//dining/living room in my loft. The problem is, high ceilings and a dark wooden ceiling absorb all the light and doesn't provide enough for food prep.
          I would have liked a lamp with a dimmer or 3-way bulb, but the fact that this will take up to 150 watts, provides me with more light than I had (I put a 100 LED in it) but at the same time did not look harsh. I looked at every lamp of similar size and modern design at R&B and found this to be closest to my needs, but did't know until I got it home how perfect it would be.

          Stylish light for bedroom

            Customer comments about Nelson Lotus Cigar Table Lamp:

            I put this lamp on the headboard of our King-size bed. It provides great ambient light because it rises up above enough to cast light over the bed, yet it doesn't take up a lot of space. It casts enough light so I can fold laundry on our bed at night.
            I didn't use the fluorescent bulb that came w/ the lamp but replaced it w/ an LED bulb. The fact that the shade is wide enough to accommodate an LED bulb is a huge plus as the days grow shorter and I anticipate having this lamp on more.
            I love the clean design and it goes well with the Japanese prints we have on the wall. I like the pull switch, don't have to fumble w/ a switch on the lamp in the middle of the night and I like the stylish wooden knob. I will be replacing the floor lamp I have w/ the floor lamp version of the lamp so that they match. I wish the floor lamp didn't have a foot switch and had the pull switch like the table lamp.
            The lamp arrived well-packaged and it was very easy to assemble. I am pleased that the materials in this lamp are of high quality and anticipate many years of use.

            Customer comments about Nelson Lotus Cigar Table Lamp:

            I bought two of these lamps to use on each of my two nightstands. They're a little larger than I'd envisioned, but are great for bedside due to the nice pull-chain on/off mechanism -- no hunting around for a switch attached to a power cord.

                  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.

                    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.
