This lamp does save space and was easy to assemble. I love the flexibility of the gooseneck and also the three light settings. It could be brighter, however. I was hoping that it would be sufficient to light an entire upstairs bedroom by itself. It provides light enough to see but perhaps not enough to study by. That being said, I think this will be the perfect lamp for my son to take to college for his dorm room. Small, light, and trendy. Thanks to rank booster, I was able to purchase this item at a promotional price.
