“I've been looking for a simple, inexpensive floor lamp /w table like this for a long time to go between a recliner and a wall. You can't beat this price and it is just the right size. Lamp requires complete assembly but it was easy (no tools required) and took all of 5 minutes. Lamp is sturdy with 3-way bulb capability. Table is approx. 13" diameter w/slight ridge to keep drinks safe.” – Mom’s Opinion
“We are very very pleased with this floor lamp. It is very attractive, well made and sturdy. I was able to put it together in just a few minutes. We needed a reading lamp for a wicker settee in the bedroom plus a place to sit reading glasses, TV remote, book, etc. This floor lamp with table fits the bill perfectly and stylishly.” – C. Bridges
“I had never ordered a light over the Internet before and this came in such a small box I was worried something was missing. But everything was there and everything went together great! The lampshade has wire inserts that make it like a regular lampshade. The table is a perfect height and it fits in a small corner perfectly --very pleased with my purchase!” – Pattimae
What a simple design that is both elegant and vintage. The antique bronze makes this floor lamp stand out exquisitely. Speaking of the lighting technology, the company says, “Ott-Lite's 508 technology is the precise balance of brightness and contrast. This low-heat, eco-friendly, and energy-efficient light is the most ideal lighting you can own.” And speaking of the vintage floor lamp itself, the company writes, “Rendered in steel and finished in antiqued bronze, the Marietta Floor Lamp with its lovely vintage design complements any decor. Features elegant off-white fabric shade and graceful curved arm that extends over reading materials delivering low heat, low glare natural illumination.”
But the real test of a great product is what the customers say about it after they’ve purchased and tested it out. If you’d like to read some customer reviews, then continue reading. This may help in your decision-making process.
“I have been struggling to see the difference in colors on my cross-stitch - there are 6 gradients of green and the lighting available to me has not been good enough. I've worked with several clip-on lights and was frustrated that they would flicker as I moved my hoop. Now, I have a bright, steady light that doesn't move and doesn't flicker and provides excellent illumination. This lamp is also pretty and I'm happy to have it in a public area of my house.
This was definitely worth the money and I'm thrilled with it.
I will mention that mine leans a little to the front, but that may be our floor or construction - either way, it really doesn't affect the light. “ – Stella
“This is a very user specific light. It's not a room lighting light. So I gave it 5 stars because I understood why I bought it. If you’re buying it for seeing hobbies, sewing, reading, etc. it is perfect for that. The light isn’t a pretty light but it brings out the colors and detail an allows for easier reading etc. and is much easier on your eyes.” – JT
“The Marietta floor lamp is stylish and complementary to the decor. The light is bright and not glaring. It also distinguishes the colors on the needlepoint canvas very well. I am very pleased.” – Jungle23Kid
Although this lamp may not be for everybody, I can’t seem to find anybody who hasn’t loved this lamp from the moment they turned it on. And the best part is that you can make it look and feel much more vintage by simply changing the color of the shade to a tan or designed leaf pattern. What a great gift for somebody (maybe even you!).
So if you’re in the market for something that is both a solid floor lamp with a vintage design, then both of these would be a great fit for you. But it’s up to you to decide which one. If neither, then you may want to look at a few other floor lamps. There’s a great review on retro floor lamps or pole lamps that you might be interested in checking out. The best of luck to you in your search for the perfect floor lamp!
