The beautiful glow these lamps emit soothe a room instantly as well as remove the static fizz I often experience after too long in a room with computers. I've bought 3, one for myself, my daughter's room and my son at Uni and they were great value for money and do the job brilliantly. Their cost and different size/weights make them ideal presents too and I'm hoping to buy several for Xmas presents. The bulbs come boxed and hidden inside the lamps and are easy to miss at a glance. The only word of caution is to NOT LICK them to check if they are salt, as one of my son's uni friends did. They are definitely salt and will taste awful, as he found out!! Just wish I'd been there to see it for myself! Enjoy your lamps, they are gorgeous.
