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.

    An enduring classic that never disappoints

        Customer comments about George Nelson Nelson Lotus Large 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.

                  Don't let the simplicity of its design understate its beauty and presence in a room. I put the lamp together with ease, I placed and LED light and I am certain it will t offer a gentle bright glow for years to come. The material — translucent plastic covering will emit a whiff for a few weeks until completely cured.

                    I have both this and the Nelson Lotus table lamp. These are fun lamps; I have this lamp in my dining room along with a George Nelson clock. The lamp is tall, easy to turn on and off with the floor switch (which is a bit tacky...), sturdy. I bought the large version and it's a nice shape and has a good glow without being harsh.

                    Compared to many other lamps, these are a good value. The shades definitely have some obnoxious fumes that come off of them for a few days, but then they are fine. The shades are a strange plastic material, but it doesn't look like cheap plastic.

                        This floor lamp is so beautiful-- it's functional (plenty of light) but also beautiful like a piece of art. It is gorgeous when seen lit through our large bay windows from the street but also so pretty with the furniture we bought from Room and Board (Holden sofa with chaise and callan chairs). We liked it so much that we bough a different shaped table lamp from this same collection.

                            Amazing clean lines. I put a new bulb in and fired it up. It puts out a pale natural light. The lamp shade is built with a blown rubber coating and results in a uniform glow.

                            Best part was that it was a floor sample sale that I couldn't pass up.

                            Bottom Line: its best lamp I've brought. My wife loves it so much we're going to get a pendant for the entry way.
