Pros: The linen shade and the chunky walnut base channel a mid-century vibe while bringing it up to date. You can also tilt the base to balance on one leg. Two lamps in one!
The cord reaches a length of 80 inches—handy if your outlets are few or far between.
Cons: When poised on a single leg, the Rook is a bit unstable.
Rook takes up a lot of space, both in height and width, and would domineer small bedside tables or desks. Reserve for roomier perches.
