A good question from CB: I have been obsessed with the arco lamp by Achille Castiglioni for quite awhile. Unfortunately it is too tall to even fit in my apartment and way out of my price range. Instead of buying an outright knockoff I would rather buy a lamp that is simply inspired by the original. Which leads me to my question. Does anyone have any experience with the chrome arc floor lamp from Chiasso? Is it a good quality lamp? Is it worth the money? Does the top part swivel? My Christmas bonus is burning a hole in my pocket and I really want this lamp. But I don't live in Chicago so I can't go inspect it myself. Help me out AT'ers.
