Color:Natural Wood Praised for its ‘retro design at a budget price,’ Brightech’s Bijou Tripod Floor Lamp brings maximum style to contemporary living rooms at a fraction of what designer lamps usually cost. Our lamp combines a neutral base of birch-toned authentic wood (legs feel smooth to the touch) with a sculpted white shade fashioned from 75 interlocking loops. With its sense of warmth and sheen of cool, the conversation-starting Bijou Tripod quickly becomes the focal point of a room; it complements a wide range of decor choices, including mid-century modern, Art Deco, industrial, and fits nicely among antiques. The floor lamp’s natural hues pair well against accent walls, in rooms painted with bold colors, and lend a contemplative, decorative embellishment to views of the sea. The legs of the base may be situated as narrowly as 20 inches apart or as widely as 29. The textured, dimensional shade was specifically made for this fixture and should not be switched with a store-bought substitute. We recommend long-lasting, low-wattage LED bulbs, although an incandescent (60 watts maximum) may be used. With its soft ambient glow, the Tripod Bijou lends a soothing look to children’s rooms; the lighting is just right for reading stories before bedtime. (Kids love the foot pedal power button!) In living rooms, the Bijou delicately enhances table lamps. Together, the tripod base and shade take approximately an hour to assemble. The process, while it may be time-consuming, isnt difficult. The individual ribbons of the shade easily lock together by hand. Customers say its good to do while listening to music or chatting with someone whose company you enjoy. After assembly, the wood legs of the base do not fold up. Your new lamp situates well on tiles, hardwood flooring, or area rugs. Sit back, admire, and savor all the compliments youll receive.
