IKEA Vrijdag: Orgel Vreten Staand Lamp/Floor Lamp

Today, we shed a little light on the Orgel Vreten staand lamp/floor lamp. Sorry for the bad pun, but as the first lamp review, I couldn't resist.

Anywho....

The Orgel Vreten staand lamp/floor lamp is a nice addition to our living room. We don't have any installed lighting on the ceiling of the living room, and we found that the light from the kitchen wasn't enough to make it over to the living room. So on the second big trip to IKEA, we took care of the lighting situation. We found the Orgel Vreten for the more central location in the room.

The lamp is just shy of 5 feet tall, with a chrome base, 3 light sockets, and a handmade paper shade with crinkly paper lantern look. The shade gives a "glowing" quality to the light but also gives plenty of light to take care of the whole room. Putting it together was easy enough. The base screws into the stand and the shade unfolds to be hooked at the top. The lamp was ready to go within 10 minutes. We've been happy with the lamp and how it went together, but if you have small children or cats with front cars, you may want to consider putting it in a corner that is not easily accessed because the paper shade seems like it may be ripped easy by a curious toddler or angry cat.

We rate the Orgel Vreten Staand Lamp/floor Lamp 4.5 Swedish meatballs on our 5 meatball scale. Half a meatball is deducted for the likely easy destruction at the hands/paws of a child/cat.
