Rated 3 out of 5 by SoozieMc Disappointing
I really wanted to like this shade but it's having to go back. The main problem was that the product description shows as a 'Duplex ring and spider' fitting, but no sign of the spider in the box and its not a standard fitting that I can pick up in local DIY shop. So, couldn't fit it to check and see what it looked like properly. John Lewis do sell the 'spider' part but the description doesn't show that you need to buy this separately and I'm not paying for extra shipping! For this price I'd expect to be able to take it out of the box and hang it, not have to buy an additional fitting.
As noted by a previous reviewer, the join on the side seam is very prominent and spoils the sleek lines of the shade. If you can fit it in a corner to hide the seam then it's a very classy item but not for the middle of a room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by megansue Nice design and lovely soft light
Great design and gives a lovely soft light, so overall we are pleased with this shade.
The colour is a bit more khaki green than lime or the lovely yellow in the photo, so a bit disappointed in that, but it just about fits in with the décor in the room.
There is a one inch strip on the side of the shade where the material overlaps, which is also slightly uneven. This is unsightly when the light is on, so we have turned the seam to face a corner where no-one will notice! The seam around the bottom rim is a neat half inch and I would have expected any visible side seam to be the same or narrower and this does slightly let it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wallixia Really very nice
It arrived. I was daunted by size, and (initially) how to fit the diffuser. Hung it up, and voila - room transformed! Great texture, colour, and finish + lovely soft light = relaxing and smart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dopeytart Impressive shade
Ordered 2 of these in different colours to see which best matched décor. Whilst this colour went back the quality of the shade really is very good - as you would expect from the price! Kept anther colour but would recommend this shade if you want some scale and a lovely diffuser so no looking up at an ugly bulb

Rated 5 out of 5 by kiva Precisely what my wife wanted
We have recently refurbished our bedroom - with a bed and all accessories bought at J. Lewis and are very pleased with it all. The only difficulty was in finding a suitable lampshade. After many searches we settled on the Cardinal Harlequin and it has proved to be perfect and excellent value.
