John Lewis Callisto Semi-flush Ceiling Light
The light fitting was more expensive than usually pay, and it took a few visits to the Tamworth store to decide, but it was well worth the extra money. We bought it for the lounge and having looked at many other light fittings I can safely say that no other light came near it. We bought this in February 2014 so it has now been up for5 months. Wonderful light - not dim and miserable as so many are today. We picked it up from the Touchwood store at Solihull as Tamworth did not have any in stock - a regular problem here I'm afraid, it was the same with the TV but the staff are so helpful.It took a while to put together, but the instructions were very clear. Would definitley recommend.

Does Not Work For Long
I purchased this item 18 months ago and the transformer inside has failed and I am left with a light that is now ready to put in the bin. I purchased two of these lights now with the fear that the other one will go too so a possible waste of so much money. Do not but this light as you could be spending a lot of money for less than two years worth of use.

Fiddly but worth the effort.!
Have just finished putting up two of these lights and they look really superb. Around 100 pieces each to fit... but very easy as long as you read the instructions first!

Wonderful Lighting for Low Ceiling
I brought two of these lights for a very large lounge. It was difficult to find what I was after because of having such a low ceiling. These are perfect and are much admired by ourselves and all who see them. They were easy to install and are absolutely perfect.

We bought two of these lights for our lounge and are so pleased with it, it looks even better when it's up at home than it does in the store or online.
Many chandeliers have a low drop - which makes them impractical for an average height room as anyone 5ft10in or taller will bang their heads on it! This one is perfect for rooms that want some sparkle but can't take a more traditional style chandelier.

On-line purchase - delivery fast and accurate. We bought two chandeliers and they look stunning. Took a while to unwrap and sort out all the hanging pieces, but the electrician was very helpful, and agreed they looked beautiful when finished. We are thrilled with our beautiful new lights, switched on, or off!

We love this light!
Walking through the lighting department this was the light that both my wife and I thought would be perfect for our living room. It cost rather more than we had planned to pay, but next to all the other lghts in their display it was clearly the nicest. We were warned by the assistant at the time that it would take about 4 hours to fit as all the crystals had to unpacked and hung one at a time, but once we had the fitting securely attached to our ceiling (slightly disintergrating victorian ceilings!) it only took an hour or so to attach all the crystals.
Now in postion in our house, we think it looks even nicer than in the store, and has had many admiring looks from friends.

Not my cup of tea!
I was expecting something pretty special from the reviews but in my opinion, this light fitting looks really cheap when up. The silver collar is really shiny and the glass beads are held together with really cheap 'tin'. It would be better for a super modern house but I really think it is trying to be something that it's not. Great for low ceilings however but that's pretty much it! NB: alike another light fitting we'd just ordered, this had also been opened and was clearly a return from another customer. Check all you parts are there.
