Argos Colour Match Floor Lamp
Advantages: Modern, great price, look nice
Disadvantages: Doesn't look expenive
For Christmas all I was really concerned about was getting some nice bits and pieces for my flat really a gifts. Having moved to a much larger place on my own opposed to in a flat share I really did need alot of things, and me well I needed nothing for myself lol.
Me and my mate decided to have our Christmas after Christmas as we both went to our parents over the Christmas period. I had bought all my friends presents and wrapped them up before Christmas, trying to be organised. My mate however left my gift buying till after Christmas which meant she hit the sales and I got spoilt rotton!
One of things I mentioned to her that I did want was this Colour Match Floor Lamp from Argos with the 'Purple Fizz' Shade for my large hallway. However she got this one but the one I actually wanted was cheaper than this one (at full price and not in the sales!) and was a paper one so when I initially opened this up I was a bit gutted to be totally honest with you. However when I got it put up I realised that this was a great lamp because I have the option of buying different coloured shades for it in the future should I decide upon a change of colourscheme!
This came not made up (in bits) in a white box where we are told what it is and who it is by etc and within the box there is a small and basic instruction leaflet explaining very well indeed how to erect it and contact details for Argos are given.
The Lamp itself:
First off this comes in a silver finish and with the lampshade colour of your choice and those colours are cream, black, chocolate, red and my colour choice, the purple.
To put this together is simple enough and not all that time consuming either. You simply get three long cylinder and thin tubes that you attatch to the round silver polished small base, you thread the black power lead through it leaving you with a large black platic switch to the bottom of it and twist the lampshade on and thats it basically and it measures when made up: Height 159cm: Diameter of base 25cm.
The lampshade (no matter the colour you opt for) is a soft material howoever I have the purple fizz colour and it doesn't give all that much light through it purely becaue the purple shade is so dark (so if you want more light of course choose a lighter shade!).
However my mate paid about £13.00 for this (in the sale) and usually (now) it costs £19.99. It does look a bit flimsy but it isn't and it is sleek and stylish and not too big at all. Its a nice height, eay to use the on/off switch and all in all I really like ecnomical looking lamp and am rather pleased with it all in all!
Only available from Argos and Argos.com
Summary: A nice buy!
