About 5,750 overarching floor lamps have been recalled by West Elm, a division of Williams-Sonoma Inc., of San Francisco. A short circuit can occur in the lamp’s wiring, posing a shock hazard to consumers. The firm says it’s aware of at least 39 reports of short circuits in the lamp, including three reports of shock, one report of a minor burn to a consumer’s finger and two reports of minor property damage.
The Overarching Floor Lamp is 77 inches tall with a 19-inch diameter base and a curving arm that extends the lamp about five feet from the base. The arm and base are made of polished nickel. It was sold with a linen shade in the colors natural, white or charcoal. The lamp has a three-way on/off switch. They were sold by West Elm retail stores nationwide, West Elm catalogs and westelm.com from March 2011 through November 2011 for about $250. Consumers should immediately stop using the lamp and return it to West Elm for a full store credit.
