The stem's sleek black finish creates a glossy contrast to the textured fabric shade. A neutral linen hue that turns beige/burlap once illumined, the shade gives off a relaxing warm glow. The Ava has the profile of an expensive designer lamp, yet costs substantially less. And it's very simple and easy to use. You just tap on the built-in foot switch in the cord, and Voila! To adjust the head, just loosen the knob at the top of the stem to raise the arm higher or lower, then tighten the knob to anchor the shade back in place. The Ava Floor Lamp includes Brightech's energy-saving, cool-to-the-touch LightPro LED bulb that will fit into the standard E26 medium base socket. Drawing a mere 9.5 watts, the long-lasting LED has every advantage over short-lived incandescent bulbs. LED won't fizzle and burnout, and it never makes a room uncomfortably warm. Best of all, LED doesn't guzzle power; using LED reduces your electricity bill over time. LightPro has 800 Lumens, a color temperature of 3,000 Kelvin, and 45,000 hours of soft, calming light.Easy to assemble within ten minutes, the Ava stands at about 4 feet and can be raised to 5 feet tall. The drum shade measures 9.5 inches tall by 18 inches wide. The heavily weighted base makes tipping over unlikely. Plug into 110-120V outlets only.
