New Product Review: Brightech’s SKY LED Torchiere Floor Lamp

I’ve been a night owl for as long as I can remember. But lately, I’m a night owl more out of necessity than preference. When you have two 2-year-olds running around the house all day, you have to stay up far past their bedtime in order to actually get things done!

Thankfully we have a room in our house that functions as a home office, so, no matter the time of night, I always have the perfect spot in which to get some work accomplished. But, when it’s 2 in the morning and I’m still up working…this may sound strange, but I was finding it a little too BRIGHT in my office.

New Product Review: Brightech's SKY LED Torchiere Floor Lamp! #productreview #brightech #lamp Click To Tweet

The main light in the room is attached to the overhead fan, so it’s pretty luminous. And somehow, in the dead of night, I don’t like that bright of a light on to work by. I had JUST told my hubby we needed a lamp for the office, when Becky from Brightech contacted me and asked if I wanted to check out one of their lamps! Perfect timing!

I hadn’t heard of Brightech before, but when I stopped by their website to pick out a lamp, I found it super easy to navigate. I also found a TON  of options for lamps of all colors, shapes and sizes! I knew I wanted something simple, not bulky, and black for our office. That was pretty much all I had to go on, but, since Brightech’s belief is that elevated design should be available to everyone, and not just the folks with big bank accounts and an interior designer on staff…I figured I’d be safe!

In the end, I chose SKY – An LED Torchiere Floor Lamp, in a lovely shade of black.

When the lamp arrived, it did need a bit of assembly, but it was super simple: I was done in about five minutes.

The Quest for Good Lighting

So I have ONE MORE THING to accomplish before I’m finally done with the redo of our Master Bedroom. And what might that one thing be? Lamps. I’m on the hunt for lamps.

As it happens, I also jumped into a living room redo (spurred on by my husband’s purchase of a new couch) and I’m on the lookout for lamps for THAT room, too! (I may or may not be a glutton for punishment…)

So I’ve been poking around a bit. As it happens, yellow is an accent color in both rooms…so I almost thought of getting the same lamps for both rooms…but then I decided I would get bored with that pretty quickly. SO, I thought maybe I would go with SUPER eclectic lighting to up the excitement factor.

Whatcha think?

Made-to-Order Lampshade

About two months ago, our cat was flying around the house being ridiculous, and knocked one of our matching lamps off the end-table in the living room. She broke the dang thing. Did I mention that they were matching?

Since I couldn’t find another lamp to match the non-broken one, I bought two new lamps, kept the lampshades (which were not damaged) and everything was fine. Except I still had one lamp with no shade left. And no place at home to put it.

But with a new office at the insurance agency where I work full time, I knew I could use it there. The problem was, I still had no lampshade.

So I spent several months looking for said lampshade, finally found the perfect one on Walmart’s website, and I ordered it (on clearance) for about $6. Wohoo, right?

Except when the box came, here’s what it looked like:

Yeah. So you can imagine what the shade itself looked like. Pitiful. Unfixable. Sold out. Returned.
