Floor Lamp Trouble

Published on December 30, 2018

My wife and I have had three floor lamps, all purchased at different times, fail in the same exact way (the third failed tonight). In each case, the crappy concrete base falls apart and the lamp separates from it. Here are some photos:

We will now institute a “no floor lamp” policy in our household, seeing as these things are so poorly manufactured. Has anyone else had this experience?
