Customer comments about Cortina 72h Floor Lamp:

Another R&B problem order. It just keeps getting worse. They 'forgot' to charge me for the lamp. They noticed one month after I picked up this special order lamp from the store. After repeated e-mails and phone calls I finally got a person who could ring up the sale. All they needed was a confirm. Why did they need a confirm to ring up a sale I had picked up one month ago? I'll NEVER place any special orders from R&B again. The entire process was a lesson in what not to do in retail sales.

Nice but more expensive than it's worth.

from Chicago, IL

Pros

  • Adequate light output
  • Attactive
  • Easy assembly

Cons

  • Cheaply Made
  • Difficult to clean
  • Poor quality

Best Uses

  • Accent lighting
  • Decoration
  • Looks Nice

Customer comments about Cortina 60h Floor Lamp:

The lamps are not frosted glass. They are plastic with removable plastic wrap on them to make them appear to be frosted. Doubt they are cleanable! Very low quality at a fairly high quality price.

Service and delivery comments:

This lamp can not be sent via UPS. So you can either pay to have it freight shipped OR pick it up at a store. The nice young cashier who rang it up told us we had to pick it up at a store about 45 minutes away. We asked, "can't we just pick it up here?" And yes, we were able to pick it up where we were buying it?

The staff when we came to pick it up was great; took just a few minutes in downtown Chicago and they loaded it in our SUV!

Great for living room mood lighting

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Accent lighting

    Customer comments about Cortina 72h Floor Lamp:

    The previous reviews on this product cover all the bases. It's a striking lamp, with highly adjustable light output: from discreet which is great for during a movie, to enough light to read by. I can understand one of the other customer's concerns about the polyethylene material that is wrapped around the shade. It would make the light shade more difficult to 'dust', but it seems durable enough to me to withstand some light vacuuming or brushing off. Because the main part of the shade is made of plexi, it's pretty light and would have to be cleaned with a soft cotton cloth, not paper towels or anything that would scratch it. I have the lamp set up on a hard tile floor, but any hard surface would be fine. The lamp is very stable, but because the design is tall and narrow-- and carpet padding gives when folks are tromping around on it-- setting it up on a rug or carpet is asking for trouble. The base is small but quite heavy, which is why there's no chance it would tip over unless the it's pushed or the floor under it is unlevel.

      I was looking for something that was aesthetically pleasing that lit up my living room and this lamp did exactly that. No one else has anything like it. I also love that it has a dimmer so I can adjust the lighting to mood

        This lamp adds mood to the room and creates beautiful reflections on both the wall and ceiling. It's one of my favorite accents. The only thing that would make it better is if it had a flat base extending out a bit so it wouldn't tip as easily.

        Lights are striking looking but unstable design. After 2 months in a protected corner, 72" lamp fell over without provocation knocked over and shattered 72' and 60" lights. Directions do not specify to place on hard floor, not carpet.
        I am disappointed manufacturer didn't take any responsibility e.g. by providing any discount on the replacement shades.
        Recommend placing on a hard floor

          This lamp is used as an accent lamp in our condo/loft. It has an adequate amount of illumination, and allows for "mood lighting" when wanted, due to dimmer. I love the simplistic design. The only drawback, is cleaning. The main plastic unit is covered in a sheer material that is hard to dust. It also allows for dust to get into the lamp...it's challenging to clean the inside to say the least.

              The slightly opaque part of the shade is silk. You can vaguely see the light source, when the light is on, through the shade.
