I’ve been looking for a reading lamp to use with my Kindle/recliner combination. The Kindle’s (or any other) e-ink screen needs fairly good illumination. Well, I went to Ikea the other day and this thing jumped out at me.
It’s called the NOT and is an floor uplight/reading lamp. The top bowl projects light upwards and the reading lamp is on a gooseneck that can be moved around. The lights are on separate switches. The base is weighted metal, the tube metal and the two shades are plastic. The combination makes for the best reading lamp I’ve seen in a long time.
And what’s even better – it costs a whopping $9.99! You can find it here. (PS: the reading portion uses a bulb with a smaller than usual base. Best if you buy it with the lamp. The top portion uses a normal bulb.)
