John Lewis Amy Ceiling Light, 5 Arm
Excellant bedroom light
Just fitted two of these. Went up very easily. Look great though very bright! A few tips - dispense with the spacers provided as they are not needed, fit the bulbs before you fit the globes, don't touch bulbs with fingers use packaging provided and consider fitting 18W G9s later.

Looks nice but.......
Have had this light a few months. It was not the quality we expect from John Lewis but once it was up it was okay and looks nice. However, now we are coming to replace blown bulbs and we are finding it very difficult - they are so tight in the fittings the only way to get them out is to unscrew the shades from inside with pliers - a very delicate operation which has now resulted in one shade cracking.
It gets it's 'one star' for looks but I would never recommend it to anyone.

Another John Lewis Light Fitting
We adore John Lewis, but for years have struggled with their light fittings, they are not cheap, made somewhere obscure and one always wonders if The Buyer has actually tried to put up the bracket, stuff all the wires in and then tried to put the screws in .
We were reminded of this yesterday when there was an almighty bang from our bedroom, light fitting, professionally installed. There was a BBQ going on inside.
Anyway, top tip, do not screw the bracket up too tight to the ceiling, I am told, else you have no chance of finding the screw holes.
Over the last few months we have again spent thousands with The Partnership and had stupendous service, but the light fittings, our electrician is now on helium.

quite tricky to fit
Like may others before me I also found the fitting difficult to mount to the bracket. Light is very nice but the position of the connecting block and the position and size of the fixing bracket holes made this a bit of a pig to fit. considering the price tag I think the fixings could be a lot better for the money.

Bought two !!
I was so happy with this light in my bedroom that I purchased another for my guest bedroom . The cream colour is perfect for my decor and the leaf detail unusual . Well done john Lewis ! Prompt delivery , as always .

We are really pleased with this ceiling light. It looks lovely in our conservatory. Bit tricky to assemble but worth the effort! Would recommend it

Beautiful, but very difficult to fit.
This fitting looks lovely and gives great illumination, although possibly a bit too bright for most. In our bedroom we will definitely need to fit a dimmer in order to be able to actually look at the light fitting and appreciate it without getting white spots on our retinas. Only real problem with it was the fitting. We cannot get it flush to the ceiling (see a previous review) and it is very fiddly to get it wired. One of our bulbs also blew as soon as it was turned on (echoing another reviewer), so possibly not quite the quality of product you would normally expect from John Lewis.
