New floor lamp (take my word for it) next to bed and comfy chair in bedroom with nice bright bulb to assist (my apparently aging eyes in) reading. Been looking, didn’t see anything I liked at Target or Ikea. Today, found myself at Pottery Barn (yay Wm Sonoma Co!). Found and bought lamp in mere minutes. Yes, I will remove the plastic on the shade. Very excited to read in comfy chair or bed courtesy of good lighting source!
