            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.

              Customer comments about George Nelson Nelson Lotus Large Floor Lamp:

              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.

                  Customer comments about Nelson Lotus Medium Floor Lamp:

                  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.

                        A great piece to a mid century home. It looks great and puts out a nice glow of light. It even looks good when it is off. My parents had one when they were my age and now I get the chance to enjoy one.
