`”°º Ikea Arstid Table Lampº°”˜

Article no: 002.806.37

`”°º Introduction º°”˜

A few days ago, I posted a review for the Ikea Hemnes bedside table; in the review, I promised a plethora of reviews due to the fact that my son and his girlfriend have moved into Jack’s bedroom after problems with their student flat in town.

After a trip to the large Ikea at Warrington, many pieces of furniture and accessories were purchased and have since transformed his X-box/football/darts/guitar/ dirty socks themed room into an attractive and smart white and grey room.

So, I put in proposals for about 6 items but all were turned down – however the table lights they chose are already on here; hence todays review for the Ikea Arstid table light.

`”°º Appearance º°”˜

The lamps that Jack and Emily chose are nickel plated and white, although they are also available in brass and white.
The base of the lamp is very solid and sturdy; it’s shiny nickel plated and is resistant to scratches and marks. The base is 6” in diameter and so is very sturdy and not easily knocked over. The simple straight stand is made in the same metal and the light bulb fits into a thick cylindrical holder of the same metal that is 2 ½ “long and 1 ½” in diameter; the switch is a 5” long ball chain pull that comes from this holder and is finished off with a larger silver ball.
The tapered textile shade is 8” long and 5” in diameter at the top and 9“at the bottom; it has a pleated design to provide a diffused and decorative light.
The cord and plug are both in white, and at 2m long the cord is just about the right length.
Overall the lamp looks like a good quality, well-made item.
The Arstid light also comes as a wall light and a standard light in both the brass and the nickel finish.

`”°º Quality º°”˜

The look and feel of these table lights is very good. They look attractive and solid, and very classy standing on the white bedside table.
The table lamb is compatible to bulbs with an A++ to D energy rating;
Ikea recommend the LED bulb E27 400 lumen globe opal white. This LED light bulb has an A+ energy rating and consumes up to 85% less energy and lasts 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

`”°º Assembly º°”˜

With Jack and Emily’s dad working on a large 8 drawer chest of drawers in the bedroom, Emily and my husband assembled the bench shoe rack, two table lamps and two bedside tables in the front room.
The shade and lamp components each came in an 9 ½” square cardboard box, and felt quite light at around 3 lbs each.
Emily was in charge of assembling the lamps, and she did struggle a little screwing the stand in; she asked me to say that the assembly was a little tricky and added “must have been designed by a Swede!!”
There is an easy to follow instruction sheet in the box with the lamp, all you need to do is to screw on a frame around the end of the bulb holder ( the bit that Emily) struggled with - there seemed limited finger space, pop the shade on top then screw that in place. It’s fairly simple with no extra tools to use, although as I said earlier, Emily did struggle a little screwing it together. However, it took her less than 15” minutes to assemble the first lamp and 10 minutes to assemble the second light.
`”°º Our Opinion º°”˜

We are all pleased with the appearance of these lights and also the efficiency of the light they give with the energy efficient bulbs.
They feel very sturdy and are in my opinion, very good value for the price.
They are a classic design that would go with most decors,
`”°º Price and Availability º°”˜

As of 9/1/16 these lamps are currently available from Ikea for £16, and I have to say that for the quality of them, this is a very good price. They are available on Amazon for £23.00.
The recommended energy efficient lamp bulbs - LED bulb E27 400 lumen, RYET (Article no: 903.057.42) are available for £2.50 for a pack of 2 from Ikea.

Go to to find where your nearest Ikea is and you can also have home delivery arranged through the store; all details are on the website.

`”°º In Conclusion º°”˜

These lamps are really good value and look like a quality item, they are perfect for any room in the house and would be excellent on a desk.
They are perfect for young people starting off in their first flat – or mum and dad’s spare bedroom in our case!!
I can really recommend the whole shopping and buying experience with Ikea as well as this lovely Ikea Arstid Table Lamp.
