John Lewis Allegro Twin Pack, Antique Brass
When I opened the packaging I found that the lamps had scratch marks - some quite deep - all over the brass finish. I have now returned the item and got a refund.

I bought this pair of lamps for my daughter for Christmas, within three days of normal use the glass on the front of the floor lamp exploded. As she was sitting close to the lamp at the time, and there was glass right across the room she was lucky not to be injured.
Lamps were returned for a refund.

A good purchase
We are delighted with these. They give a flexible light, just where you want it and the base and shade take up very little space. They were also very straightforward to assemble. A nice touch was that a spanner was included so that you have everything you need to put it together. They were also very good value for the money.

Very nice lights - until they fail.
We've had 2 sets of these lights and so far three lamps have failed in the same way - the glass covering the bulb has shattered spreading pieces of glass over a wide area.
The failures have all been when the lights have been about 3 years old and when the lamp was warming up or cooling down. The glass does not seem to be fit for purpose for being so close to a hot bulb.

Sturdy & effective
Floor lamp easy to assemble. Both lamps feel sturdy yet they look quite elegant & unobtrusive in my lounge. Pleased that the floor lamp has a decent length cable. Both give a good light for reading.

Received these lamps yesterday and lost no time in assembling the floor lamp - as I am 80 years old l was a little apprehensive but it all went together very well and I am really pleased with the end result. Shine on, John Lewis!!!!!

Shine a light
These floor lamps are really good. We now have three in our sitting room. I'm a touch concerned about changing the bulbs (at hopefully some distant point in the future) as my experience with other similar lamps from other suppliers hasn't been too good, but fingers crossed all will be well. We're also a bit overwhelmed with table lamps but they're very portable and will no doubt be moved from place to place.
Thanks John Lewis - stylish, easy to assemble, good quality and a great price. Result.

The bulbs are fiddly to change and the screw thread on the large lamp doesn't grip properly so that the whole thing wobbles. I wish I'd taken it back but I desperately needed the extra light for a gloomy room and I decided to keep it. Poor decision. This is the second John Lewis light that hasn't come up the the standard we expect, which is very disappointing. Are they sourcing their lighting from low-quality suppliers? If only I could find the guarantee....
