Customer comments about Tri-plex Floor Lamp:

Out of all the lamps we searched, we chose this one for its height. At around 6' tall, it's a great height for our 20' ceilings. It doesn't feel too short and it isn't too tall that it's hard to clean. The metal rods feel substantial and of quality, which would be the hope given the price. When lit, the white lamp shade retains its whiteness, emitting a white-colored glow, not like the usual white lamp shades that emit a yellow color when turned on.

We looked at other places for "affordable" and aesthetically pleasing lamps, but the quality always fell short or the design was just a bit off, whether the lamp didn't stand straight or the material felt cheap. While pricey, at least it meets expectations, but because it's made in China, I'd expect it to be cheaper in price.

I live in a: Apartment/condo

bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
