Modern and Chic!
By: Taylor, Homeowner (California, USA)
I purchased the Lotus Floor Lamp in the large size a couple weeks ago. I love it! It has brightened up my office and added a chic and modern feel to my room. I received such great customer service working with YLiving. The lamp came in a week, it was in two boxes, the shade and the stand and aslo came with a lightbulb. It was so easy to assemble. It was exactly what I was looking for to add a little design and light to my space. Thank you YLiving can't wait to find my next purchase on your site.

A classic that stays modern!

This lamp is gorgeous! It gives a soft glow to any room. I placed mine in a dark corner of my living room. It lights up the room while not taking away from my other designer pieces. Highly recommend!
A beautiful mid-century designed lamp

We bought the medium size because it looks the most proportionate to us, and doesn't overshadow other pieces in our bedroom. The light cast from the lamp is very evenly distributed.

This was a beautiful, simple lamp that we are actually using the in living room. We have replaced the bulbs with incandescent bulbs for a warm light. It would have been perfect if it had come with a dimmer, but otherwise very satisfied.

Simply Gorgeous, what can I say? Yliving is very easy to deal with.
By: Pablo, Homeowner (Denver)
Love the Lotus Floor Lamp. Mine is the small version, and it fits well proportionally in the small room where I put it. It puts out a nice light, the rubbery lampshade is very cool, and the lamp looks great overall. I wish it had a dimmer, but that's the only downside.
Sturdy, extremely well made, stylish piece.
By: Steve, Renter (Orange County, CA)
This is a very stylish piece that commends total attention in a room. Very sturdy and well constructed. Yliving is a breeze to deal with. I love the fact that there is no delivery charge and tax on my order!
The lamp makes my room have a warm glow.

The lamp has a small footprint but makes a large impression on a room.
Designer: George Nelson
When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps" — moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of."
Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as antihuman." Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.
Nelson did so as few are able, and, with the help of well-timed zaps, he helped define modern, humane design.View other products by George Nelson
