West Elm Floor Lamp Recall Issued Due to Risk of Injury, Shocks
Hundreds of floor lamps sold at West Elm stores nationwide have been recalled from the market after at least 24 reports of the lamps failing, including three reports of the cords sparking.
A West Elm Overarching floor lamp recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on April 23, due to problems with the lamp’s joint locking mechanism, which may fail and allow the lamp to collapse. This may create sparks from the cord and pose a potential risk of shocks or other injury for consumers.
To date, 24 incident reports have been received by the manufacturer, including at least ten incidents where the West Elm floor lamp lamp fell and three incidents where the cords sparked. No injuries have been reported.

The recall affects Industrial Overarching floor lamps with a swiveling triple-jointed adjusting arm with model numbers 192799, 192856,465906, or 465922, which were manufactured between August 2012 and February 2013. The date of manufacture is located on a sticker under the base and in MM/YYYY format.
The floor lamps measure 78 inches tall with a 12.5 inch high lamp shade and are 21 inches in diameter at the base with a antique bronze finish. The title “Industrial Overarching Floor Lamp” is displayed on the products packaging.
The recalled overarching lamps were manufactured in China by Modern Home, of Guangdong, China and imported by West Elm, a branch of Williams-Sonoma Inc., of San Francisco. The lamps were sold exclusively in West Elm stores, catalogs, and online from December 2012 through February 2013 for about $380 with the lamp shade and $300 without the lamp shade.
