I have always loved Kovacs for the clean modern lines. This table lamp fulfills that desire but also has great light output. I put in two 60W A lamps (regular 60W bulbs) and get a lot of light. It is dimmable which is really nice. The downside is that there aren't many dimmable fluorescent bulbs available and the ones that are are rather large. Another downside is that the metal frame for the shade is a polished chrome where the rest of the lamp is a satin nickel so it doesn't quite match. Overall, I really like this lamp and would order it again.
