Illuminate Your Life at Destination Lighting {Nils Adjustable Floor Lamp Review & Giveaway}

Destination Lighting logo
When my husband and I first came to look at our house, we knew what we were looking for and what we wanted... and were sure that we found it the first time we walked through.

In fact, as we were pulling up at the curb, I turned to my husband and said, This is going to be the one. I can feel it. And, when we were back in the car afterward, he turned to me and asked, Well, was that it? and I nodded. The rest is house-buying history.

Even after visiting again, bringing family, having an inspection, etc, what seemed to go unnoticed were a few of the small details. The important aspects were fine — solid roof, no leaks in the basement, the whole thing hasn't crumbled down, stuff like that — but after we began to really live here for a while, the little things became more apparent.

Some were easy to change, such as covering the green and tan sponge painting in the hallway, swapping out the annoying hollow doors on all of the rooms, and replacing the cheap faucet in one of the bathrooms that was so short that you always banged your hands on the back of the sink when you washed them.

Something that has been more difficult? The lack of overhead lighting. How did we not notice that the dining room, second living room (what is now our play room), and multiple bedrooms didn't have ceiling lights? Short of calling in an electrician and shelling out a small fortune to have fixtures installed all over the house, the next option has been to bring in high quality, attractive, functional, versatile lamps and lights such as those from Destination Lighting.

Destination Lighting

Offering more than 42,000 products including both indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures as well as furniture, hardware and home decor, DestinationLighting.com has been perfecting their commitment to excellence for nearly a century.

Whether you need table lamps, desk lamps, chandeliers, pendants, floor lamps, bathroom lights, sconces or much, much more, their outstanding products and superior service are available to make customers' lives easier all across the United States.

As our home has a modern, simplistic design, I was immediately drawn to the large variety of drum pendants that Destination Lighting has to offer. The clean lines and contemporary feel of drum shades are just the sort of thing that I look for in decor — and I'm clearly not the only one, as this style of shade is quickly becoming very popular with lighting and interior designers as the new "chandelier."

After browsing the table lamps with drum shades and the floor lamps with drum shades, I couldn't wait to see the Nils Adjustable Floor Lamp with White Drum Shade in person.

Nils Adjustable Floor Lamp

Created by Design Classics (who are known for high quality and unbeatable prices — and are exclusively sold by Destination Lighting), the Nils Adjustable Floor Lamp arrived and was only a collection of pieces for a few minutes.

floor lamp construction

With clear instructions and a very intuitive design, it only took around 10 minutes before I had this floor lamp constructed and two 100-watt medium base bulbs (not included) screwed into place.

As I placed this in the room, I was happy to see that adjusting the height of the lamp couldn't be much easier. Simply loosen and tighten the hand-level knob on the base...

lamp height adjustable

...and the entire lamp can be placed anywhere between 55" and 71" tall. Talk about versatile!

adjustable height floor lamp

After adjusting this lamp to just the right height, I appreciate that the white linen drum shade measures 16" across by 4" high and includes an acrylic diffuser on the bottom so that I don't have to worry about any harsh glare coming directly from the lightbulbs.

drum shade

I love how easy it is to access the bulbs when they need to be changed (simply lower the height of the base and reach right in the top!) and the on/off floor switch means that there is never any bending or reaching to try to find a knob or pull chain.

floor lamp

I couldn't ask for much more in a high quality lamp! The Nils Adjustable Floor Lamp has added a great deal of much-needed light to our room, while the combination of the satin nickel finish and white drum easily blends with the decor. While we have this currently on carpet, I wouldn't have any problem moving it to one of our rooms with hardwood, as the bottom of the base is fully lined to prevent any slipping or scratches.

With a retail price of $179.95, this high quality lamp can make a wonderful addition to nearly any household — who doesn't need more light?

No matter if your home could use a boost of light indoors or out, in an pendant, floor lamp, chandelier, table lamp or much more, Destination Lighting has the selection, design and customer service that you're looking for. Free shipping is available on many orders and your satisfaction is guaranteed, you simply have to make a decision between their huge variety of styles to narrow them down to your favorite!

Thanks to the generosity of Destination Lighting, one person will soon be able to flood their home with the warm glow of Design Classics as well, because...

One lucky person will win a Design Classics Nils Adjustable Floor Lamp with White Drum Shade from Destination Lighting!
