Rook Table Lamp
by Blu Dot

Rook Table Lamp At A Glance:
You don't need to be skinny to be beautiful. This little light is, unapologetically, a bit chunky and we think it's pretty hot. And Gary Kasparov wouldn't understand why this sweet little lamp is called the Rook Lamp, but that's OK. Solid walnut with a linen shade and gray cord, the lamp's base has a balance that enables it to be balanced on any of its three legs if you need directional light - or just because you enjoy oddity.

What's To Like:
Here's a lamp for all you who love tipping things over. Oh, and did we mention solid walnut? There's a reason everyone loves walnut: it looks really good. And, just like everything Blu Dot makes, the Rook Table Lamp has an element of crazy to it. We dig.

What's Not to Like:
Maybe it's got a larger base than you want. That's legit. If you don't like the Rook Lamp's base, check out the Flask Table Lamp. It's got a more svelte base.

The Bottom Line:
Blu Dot's Rook Table Lamp feeds our ever-growing appetite for new-modern Walnut furniture by saying all the right things. "I'm linear, I'm solid wood, I'm unique, I've got a cloth-covered cord." And you know what that means: it's the perfect table lamp for any setting, whether modern or just plain funky.

Comments about Blu Dot Rook Table Lamp:

I love blu dot designs however it seems like their products have either been photographed or photoshopped in such a way it isn't a true representation of the product as the proportions seem a little off.

In this case, the center 'spine' of the lamp seems much smaller in comparison (see my photos vs product images).

Also, although the lamp does stand on one leg, it is so unstable that it would not take much to knock it over. However, I'm not really sure just how useful having the lamp in this position really is.

We also recently ordered the white stilt lamp to find the proportions askew and even some design flaws that we were told are simply inherent in the design of the lamp (even though said flaws aren't shown in their own photos).

When all is said and done we still love this rook lamp enough to keep it (but the stilt lamp was returned). Thankfully smart furniture has excellent customer service so if you're feeling uncertain about ordering the product, I'd say do it!
