IKEA of Sweden

  • Light bulb sold separately. IKEA recommends LED bulb E27.

    Lampshade is sold separately.

    Use an opal light bulb if you have an ordinary lamp shade or lamp and want an even, diffused distribution of light.

    Use a clear light bulb if you have a lamp shade or lamp with a perforated or cut-out pattern or other airy, open design and want the pattern to cast effects on the wall and ceiling.

    The lamp base should not be used with a glass lampshade since it is too heavy and can cause the lamp base to tip.

    Special waste handling may be required. Please contact your local authorities for more information.

It's huge!Verified ReviewerI measured the width before but not the hight. I also saw it in the shop but was still surprised how big it was when I got home. I was worried about the assembly after reading some reviews but it's really simple to put together although the screws are tiny. It looks well made too. 5
Shade I bought has different size fitting Verified ReviewerI bought this lamp stand which I love , got a lampshade out of next but it doesn’t fit onto the stand it’s too small , basically ikea light fitting large and the shade fitting us small what can I do 3
Lovely lamp, but not worth the time assembling itVerified ReviewerThis is a lovely design lamp, however it is a two person job to assemble it. You require a lot of patience to assemble it and the screws to hold it up could do with some significant improvements because they make the lamp not the safest to be around children or pets, as it’s extremely wobbly as you cannot tighten the screws properly holding the main lamp up itself.2
Heavy itemVerified ReviewerExtremely heave base, ensures you lamp isn't going to go anywhere. However I underestimated how large the range of the lamp was, and it cannot go in the place I was intending it to go as the arched piece is too wide for that area. It would have been handy to take out a piece to make it smaller but unfortunately you are unable to do that with this product. It is a lovely statement piece once you have attached the lampshade of your choice. It does not come with a shade, but you could order a large paper shade for just £2.4
cannot recommendVerified ReviewerVery fiddly to put together. Once up, the base wasn't heavy enough to support the lampshade (Mojna, as featured in one of the photos). In attempting to catch the lamp as it fell over and rotate it relative to the base, the lower screw hole was stretched and the screw fell out. I will have to resort to gaffer tape. I cannot recommend this lamp - the base is not heavy enough for the lampshades and the construction did not survive my attempts to put it together.1
lovely lamp, pain to assembleVerified Reviewerthe lamp is great and looks brilliant in the room. only problem is assembling it is a struggle unless you are 7 feet tall !4
Good value and stylishVerified ReviewerThis lamp was easy to assemble and looks great. Bear in mind that the heavier the lamp shade the lower the lamp will settle.5
Lovely lampVerified ReviewerExcellent value for money. Pair it with an enormous shade and it becomes a real statement piece.5


What is steel?

Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
