Customer comments about Mega Tolomeo Floor Lamp:

I loved this Mega Floor Lamp and bought it in 2009 before Seattle had a local store. It never stood straight and customer service didn't have any useful ideas. I attempted to tighten the base and it just didn't work. I didn't ship it back to the MidWest, just too much of a hassle once the delivery guys were gone and the very large box was too. Within 18 months the lamp shade started to break at the solder points and one by one they all popped. It is a beautiful design but given my experience with its poor quality, I'd not buy this again.

    Customer comments about Mega Tolomeo Floor Lamp:

    We loved this lamp for 5 years and then it just died. No flicker, no surge...just died. I appreciate that it's been 5 years but for this price I would expect a lamp to last longer than that. Customer service was not able to provide any sort of assistance.

      When you turn the light on, it is dim at first... The light gets brighter as you use it.... Wasn't expecting that... Once the light is on for a minute or two, it comes to full brightness.

      Customer comments about Mega Tolomeo Floor Lamp:

      I looked all over for the right height and suspension. This worked perfectly, and it does it with style. I used a LED bulb (dimmable) -- no issues. When I come home at night, I always admire it. Friends told me to stop talking about it so much...it was getting awkward . No matter, it is a great lamp.

      Customer comments about Tolomeo Reading Floor Lamp:

      We needed additional lighting in our living room. I placed it next to a recliner that I bought from Room and Board. One is able to move the light up, down, sideways, and the head of the light swivels. The light is moderate in brightness but is adequate for my needs . Very cool design. Small footprint.

      Customer comments about Mega Tolomeo Floor Lamp:

      It's a beautiful lamp with a cheap dimmer.

      On my third lamp. I will give up if this one fails. First lamp, the switch on the dimmer snapped off. Second lamp, the fuse blew on the dimmer.

      I would only buy this lamp if you lived near a store and could easily exchange your lamp if it breaks.

          We bought 3 lamps from other companies before getting this lamp. The first one could not be assembled because the parts did not fit properly. The second did not work after assembling and was repaired by the store. The lamp stopped working after about a month because the dimmer switch was for an incandesent lamp and the lamp was halogen. Both were made in China. This lamp is made in ITALY and was perfect!

            Customer comments about Mega Tolomeo Floor Lamp:

            A wonderful lamp, but the light bulb that ships with the product could really have been of higher quality. There is a loud buzzing that occurs whenever the dimmer is engaged, and we have discovered that different light bulbs have different volumes of buzzing. We are still on the search for a light bulb that will give a pleasant auditory as well as visual experience, and woud have been much more satisfied had it just worked well straight out of the box without so many trips to the hardware store.

              Q:

              Hi - what is the material of the white lamp shade? I am trying to determine if the light only shines through top and bottom opening or if it also emanates through the shade. Thanks

                The Mega Tolomeo Floor Lamp is only available in the Black, Silver, and Parchment colors at Room and Board. The Parchment shade is the only one that is somewhat transparent.
