Ikea have some great budget lighting options don't they?! This funky bedside or table lamp is only 3.59 pounds - bargain!
I use my Grono lamp next to my bed. It is approximately 20cm high and 10cm wide. It takes candle (chandelier) screw-in light bulbs with a maximum wattage of 40W. Bulbs are obviously sold separately from the unit itself.
The light unit is made from quit thick, sturdy frosted white glass with a matt finish. It is very simple but sleek in design and definitely does not look cheap, as the price might suggest! It is operated by a simple on/off switch on a white cord. The cord is 2m long - more than enough length I find. There is a small indentation on one side of the base where the cord fits in so that this doesn't make the light unstable.
With the maximum wattage of 40W this isn't going to shed masses of light throughout the whole room, but it is perfect as a bedside lamp I find. It's more than enough light for me to read comfortably by in the evenings in bed, although I probably wouldn't use it alone as a desk lamp for long hours of working. It might be ok if you were just using it for some extra light along with an overhead light though.
Being quite a soft light, and also further mellowed out by the frosted glass, it does make for nice low, mood lighting if you were watching a DVD in the room or something like that.
All in all the light does it's job very well, looks nice and unobtrusive (even if not exactly exciting or stunning to look at), and it all comes at a very reasonable price. You can't go wrong!
Summary: Highly recommended.
