IKEA of Sweden

  • Light bulb sold separately. IKEA recommends LED bulb E26.

    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.

Was not what I thoughtCHRISTYThis lamp is the first thing I have bought from ikea I didn’t approve of. The base is very heavy and the light was displayed at ikea with a shade on it. I took it home and put it together with the bulb and shade. It broke the next day. I returned it and purchased something else I had been wanting.1
FantasticAnthonyI purchased this lamp for my mother. The base is nice and heavy and I like the different lamp shades you can put.on it. My mother loves her new lamp.5

Skaftet Lamp StandMunkh-OrgilI bought this recently and I love it. Goes really well with Nymo shade. The 17” is perfect fit for it. The other arching lamps can’t beat the price comparison.5
Skaftet lampShannon S.Great lamp base, perfect for what I needed it for.5
Not as picturedLili55555Bought this about a month ago. It’s functional and assembly was easy. However, the online photos are NOT accurate. It arcs way further out. The electrical cord is also threaded through the casing in such a way that you can’t remove a segment. If I’d known how large it actually was, I wouldn’t have bought it. However, everything else about it is fine.2
Had to return -- couldn't assemblestellabella16The holes of the arch pieces would not line up in order to screw them together. The base mounted fine but I couldn't finish assembly. I plan on exchanging for another one and I'm hoping this isn't a widespread defect. Otherwise appears very sturdy and as pictured.2


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.
