House by John Lewis Easy-to-fit Harvey Shade
I appreciate that this is a very attractive light but the object is to illuminate the room, and this does not. We have the correct bulb inserted but this is just not enough. We have this in our bedroom to complement the colour scheme but will have to change it. We use lamps on our side tables, but for those occasions when you want good light (for example looking in the wardrobe) it is necessary to have a bright ceiling light. I'm afraid this one will be moved to a spare bedroom. Sadly we had it boxed up while our bedroom was being decorated (we've recently moved house) and only installed it past the refund date.

We ordered 4 of these shades. They look good but are tricky to assemble being made up of separate shades held apart on a long screw by spacers. The spacers are hopeless. Three of the four shades have problems - on one the screw pin was bent preventing threading; on another the spacer was poorly cut and required trimming on a third one shade tier was biffed making attachment impossible. Not what I would expect from something bearing the John Lewis name - usually a sign of quality. A good design but very poor manufacturing quality. Disappointed.

Good second time round
The second of these I received was just right. The first one wasn't made very well, where the two inner parts attach to the main shade the wasn't concentric to the bulb so the two inner parts were very wonky. Usual excellent service from John Lewis and it was changed within a day.

Stylish and Elegant
Very pleased with this product. I read the reviews before purchase and contrary to what is suggested by some it is not possible to assemble before hanging unless you have very small hands. Putting them up is definitely a two person task but the outcome is well worth the effort. I purchased two for my new kitchen and they look stunning. Only slight negative is that I wish they gave a slightly larger field of light - very subjective tho and does not merit losing a star.

Good quality, easy to fit and fantastic styling without a high price tag.

Retro style chic
I spotted this shade on display and loved its unusual design. As I was looking for something to inject a bit of colour above neutral walls on a staircase, I chose it in teal, and it looks stunning. I would agree with other reviewers that it is rather fiddly to assemble, but the end result is worth it. Lots of compliments from family and friends so I am delighted.

I bought this for the hall and landing and it really looks good - not too obvious but still pretty. I would advise putting the parts together before trying to hang it, as has been suggested by another purchaser, then it is not nearly so difficult. It is worth the money. Mine will have an LED bulb in it, providing plenty of light.

We tried to purchase this item twice. The first attempt had fittings missing but JL as always had excellent customer service who ordered a replacement. Sadly when we assembled the replacement the tiers did not fit evenly so we had to return it. Disappointed.
