I love this light! The glass block is beautiful. I display it on it's side so you can see the bulb design better.
Block lamp, made cheap
By: Eero K., Homeowner (Rye, New York)
Thanks for YLiving for a prompt delivery. Everything worked very well. However, as an enthusiast of Finnish design, I was surprised to see that also these lamps are now "made in China". They had cheap written all over them. The "jelly pads" had moved away from where they were supposed to be and the electrical work was flimsy. At least the glass blocks were OK.
