Ikea 001.908.30 Alang Floor Lamp, Nickel Plated Gray – Love the lamp, but OMG, the price is more than 2x that of !

It was totally my fault for not checking, but the vendor i bought this lamp from billed much a lot more than my nearby ikea keep, and i did not comprehend it until eventually following i purchased. Far more than 2 times their price. Soon after the two lamps i’d requested arrived, (and after i learned how way a lot extra i paid than i must have) i arranged to send out a person back again, at my cost, however. I will say that the seller was very swift to respond to my ask for to return 1 of them, and answered my thoughts really swiftly, so they get kudos for that. But how they can cost extra than 2 times the rate ikea does is further than me. It cost me around $twenty five to send the second lamp back so my web credit rating following returning the lamp was about fifty% of what i compensated. I definitely like the lamp a great deal – really thoroughly clean traces, pretty woven gray shade that lets the gentle to peek through the weave, and pleasant brushed nickel base and pole. I bought the corresponding wall lamp (with a white shade) straight at ikea and they seem excellent alongside one another. Even with the enormous price tag increase, if you will not have an ikea store around you, it is continue to a good wanting lamp at fewer than equivalent kinds. But just know ikea charges half again as considerably.

Basic and easy, appreciate the lamp shade, enjoy the light-weight impact via the holes in the shade.

Seems excellent would not acquire up way too considerably home and is not too tall.

  • Great lamp for the price
  • The lamp is a little expensive but I’m so glad I got it
  • Very nice lamp. Wish it was a little taller

If you want to conserve revenue you can buy it in ikea for $thirty. It is not the very best high quality but fot this price it is okay.

Appears a large amount less expensive and lesser in fact.

I have experienced numerous people remark on them. I would highly advise them.

For the value, i are unable to beat it.

It is substantially less costly if you can go to ikea. Also, this is not the colour of the lamp i just been given. The lamp i received has extra of an off white lamp shade fairly than the gray which is disappointing.

I would give it 5 stars if it weren’t for the trouble of the way it desires to unscrew by itself due to the fact by the time you get the many items in the stand screwed with each other, the twine that operates within is extremely twisted. A nudge will sometimes begin the major part with the shade spinning as it releases pressure. I have many lamps that went with each other this way, and i have no plan how to solution that trouble. Normally, i really like this lamp, it really is strong for the cost, great significant base, and mine arrived in excellent condition, shipped from an impartial vendor. I was not able to get to my neighborhood ikea, and frankly to preserve the gas and headache, having to pay about $20+ much more was in the long run well worth it. I have had the desk model of this lamp for a selection of yrs with the ivory shade and adore that a person, as well, still operates good. I bought the gray for following to the mattress, because it truly is a tight room, i did not want to sacrifice any sq. inches on my little nightstand, and the shade can be reduced plenty of that when i am sitting in mattress reading through, i am not seeing a bare bulb from beneath the shade.

This is a attractive floor lamp, my daughter liked it for her living place.

I get a lot of compliments on this lamp, i love it.

It does not appear as it appears in the picture. I felt it is small shorter than i anticipated.

Lamp appears particularly as illustrated. Nevertheless, while foundation is hefty & strong, the stem is extremely wobbly and ‘chintzy’ looking. I would give it two stars but, in perspective of the selling price, i felt at least three stars would be extra good. Usage is greatest suited to an location exactly where it doesn’t get any additional dealing with or relocating other than the off-on- change. The ‘weave style’ of the shade as it filters the light-weight from bulb is incredibly attractive.

Gorgeous lamp for y visitor area, will purchase another one quickly.

Sweet but hardly puts out any light because of to the shade getting dark and thick.

The lamp is a tiny costly but i am so glad i received it. I like the weave sample due to the fact it allows gentle out by way of the shade as very well as the top and base. I love that it is not much too significant as i have a fairly small home with awful lights. The base isn’t really the sturdiest in the environment, but it really won’t make a big difference. This lamp was specifically what i wanted.

I can’t think what an incredible offer this lamp is. A portion of the price of other retail outlets, and it looks so classy. I get so lots of compliments on it.

The gentle shines via the lampshade like no other i’ve at any time found. I have received compliments together with a mate wanting to know exactly where she could get a single. When seeking at floor lamps, i did recognize that the bar has appreciably reduced pertaining to structure and quality. This lamp is both of those distinctive and of superior high quality. Other floor lamps cost a similar price tag for something built of aluminum and plastic that will undoubtedly not be really worth it for just one cause or one more.

I like these lamps and the lamp shade.

I obtained this lamp for my residing home. The shaft is slender but however a good buy.

I enjoy the way the mild emanates from this lamp – it’s extremely modern and perfect for the living place.

Terrific on the lookout lamp – i have received various compliments on it. Shade is scaled-down than i pictured, and it failed to arrive with the piece that screws on following you place the shade on, so the shade is wobbly. Only factors i didn’t give it 5 stars. Quite adorable even though for the selling price.

Lamp shade looked pretty economical. Not the quality i was looking for.

    Looks nice, but it is very flimsy, especially at full height. The base is nice, the lamp shade is nice, everything else is very cheaply built. Lamp shade was smaller than i thought. I wouldn’t recommend, especially at the price point, there is better out there.

    After under 6 months the light no longer works. I have changed the bulbs that were purchases with the lamp and still nothing. It appears i am past the 30 day return policy so i guess i am just out of luck and a lamp.

    The lamp is a little expensive but i’m so glad i got it. I like the weave pattern because it lets light out through the shade as well as the top and bottom. I love that it is not too big as i have a rather small room with terrible lighting. The base isn’t the sturdiest in the world, but it really doesn’t make a difference. This lamp was exactly what i needed.

    Lamp appears exactly as illustrated. However, while base is heavy & sturdy, the stem is very wobbly and ‘chintzy’ looking. I would give it two stars but, in view of the price, i felt at least three stars would be more fair. Usage is best suited to an area where it doesn’t get any more handling or moving other than the off-on- switch. The ‘weave style’ of the shade as it filters the light from bulb is very attractive.

      Everyone in my family is tall, granted, but this lamp looks ridiculous. We are keeping it and putting it in my toddler’s room, because it’s more expensive than is worth it to ship it back. Unless you’re looking for a weird, tiny lamp, don’t do it.

      I would give it 5 stars if it weren’t for the problem of the way it wants to unscrew itself because by the time you get the various pieces in the stand screwed together, the cord that runs inside is very twisted. A nudge will sometimes start the top portion with the shade spinning as it releases tension. I have several lamps that went together this way, and i have no idea how to remedy that problem. Otherwise, i really like this lamp, it’s sturdy for the price, good heavy base, and mine arrived in perfect condition, shipped from an independent seller. I was unable to get to my local ikea, and frankly to save the gas and hassle, paying about $20+ more was ultimately worth it. I have had the table version of this lamp for a number of years with the ivory shade and love that one, too, still works great. I got the gray for next to the bed, since it’s a tight space, i didn’t want to sacrifice any square inches on my tiny nightstand, and the shade can be lowered enough that when i’m sitting in bed reading, i’m not seeing a bare bulb from underneath the shade.

    • Have the desk lamps in office, they look like 5x the price. And for those complaining about cost, the lamp is $29. You have to drive, deal with shipping at ikea… if they shipped it but they don’t… so getting it for this price and having it arrive in 2 days it excellent.

    Very strange situation because the lamp pole shows a bump, it was hit by something and the shade broken, but the case was intact. It seems that it was packed with the damage. In the email i will send the photos for your review. I would kindly ask that you send a new shade.

        It is much cheaper if you can go to ikea. Also, this is not the color of the lamp i just received. The lamp i received has more of an off white lamp shade rather than the gray which is disappointing.

    • It was totally my fault for not checking, but the vendor i bought this lamp from charged much more than my local ikea store, and i didn’t realize it until after i ordered. More than twice their price. After the two lamps i’d ordered arrived, (and after i learned how way much more i paid than i should have) i arranged to send one back, at my expense, unfortunately. I will say that the vendor was very quick to respond to my request to return one of them, and answered my questions very quickly, so they get kudos for that. But how they can charge more than twice the price ikea does is beyond me. It cost me over $25 to send the second lamp back so my net credit after returning the lamp was about 50% of what i paid. I really like the lamp a lot – very clean lines, lovely woven grey shade that allows the light to peek through the weave, and nice brushed nickel base and pole. I bought the corresponding wall lamp (with a white shade) directly at ikea and they look great together. Even with the huge price increase, if you don’t have an ikea store near you, it is still a great looking lamp at less than comparable ones. But just know ikea charges half again as much.
