Heal's customer Design classic, so glad went for the larger one 19-Feb-2021
Heal's customer An excellent product albeit expensive. A muddled approach to approximate delivery dates and a lack of attention to detail in appreciating how the customer could unpack it took away some of the shine from its safe receipt. 08-Feb-2016

Heal's customer Beautiful product
Easy to assemble
Heal's customer I like my lamp but it has a slight problem in that it does not always hold the position I put it in. Some joints or springs are not quite tight enough. Some adjustment is possible but sadly not where I need it. But it is a classic design and looks super so I am glad to have it. 28-Feb-2015
Heal's customer The lamp is great: looks good and does its job (I use it as a bedside reading light). It took me ages to find the assembly instructions - they were buried deep within the sturdy packaging. Maybe they could be taped nearer the lid?
