Nelson

Part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, George Nelson's sculptural bubble designs became instant icons of mid-century modernism when introduced in 1947. They are constructed of a steel wire frame and covered with translucent plastic to emit a soft, even light.

      Customer comments about Nelson Lotus 59h Floor Lamp:

      This iconic mid-century design is gorgeous! It is perfect in my reading corner next to the Delia chair. Others have commented on a chemical smell from the shade. I don't detect that unless my put my nose right up to the shade to smell it. I love the foot-pedal on/off switch. I would give this 5 stars if it had better light output. The bulb gives off a shrill fluorescent-like light, yet it's not very bright.

      Service and delivery comments:

      My delivery man Dan did a fantastic job! This was part of a 20-piece order. He and his partner arrived on time; unloaded, unpacked, and placed everything very quickly; and never made a mark on any wall. R&B delivery services are by far the best I've ever experienced.

            I purchased one of the large Nelson floor lamps for my living room and soon added another to my bedroom and a medium sized lamp for the dining room. Love all three.

                Customer comments about George Nelson Nelson Lotus 64h Floor Lamp:

                I agree with most of the comments already posted: easy assembly, great light diffusion, classic design, etc. I also agree that the initial smell may be off-putting, but it dissipates after a few days. I used an LED bulb instead of the compact fluorescent provided and the shade diffuses the light so evenly that you have no notion of a central bulb at all. I was so happy that I ordered two more of these, one for the dining room and one for the master bedroom.

                  Excellent, high quality lamp. When I saw that the shade was made of plastic-like material in the picture, I was a bit worried. In fact, it is extremely sturdy and high quality. Very easy to unpack and put together. Most importantly, it looks great.
