House by John Lewis Easy-to-fit Harvey Shade
I couldn't agree that this is as described "Easy to Fit". As has been said by other reviewers, when it came to fitting the light, we found that the fittings to keep the different parts of shade apart were not in the box. It was annoying to find that we weren't the only ones. If we needed to buy these separately then we should have been advised of this.

Lovely shades, but beware!
I saw these shades hanging in a line in store and decided to buy one of each colour to hang above my dining table. Yes, they are fiddly to put up but look lovely except...that the white and teal shades are white on the underside, but the mocha shade is not.
It is almost the same colour on top and underneath and this really alters the colour of the light. I now have two shades with a white light and one with a yellow light - not very attractive! Sadly I think the only solution is to return the mocha shade and replace it with another teal or white.

Very disappointed by the fittings and packaging
I bought this shade from John Lewis recently. When I started installing the shade, I found that a reducer ring will be required to fit this shade. This is a small plastic ring which I think John Lewis should have supplied along with the pendant light. After buying the reducer ring, I found that 2 of the fittings were missing too. I had to go to John Lewis store to get the missing parts. At last when I had all the fittings, I found that assembling the shade was also very tricky. Finally I was able to fix the shade somehow, but I wasn't satisfied at all by the packaging and quality of fittings. It does look lovely above my dining table now and hence I'm keeping it. Not at all satisfied with John Lewis - who are known to have very high quality and standards.

Lovely stylish lampshade
Ordered this for our hallway in Mocha. A lot of lamps were too fancy but this one looks stylish and spreads the light well, perfect! Considering changing upstairs landing to these as well

Nice light - but for the wonky fittings
This is a self-assembly light and you have to fit six spacers between the three tiers. The job itself would have been relatively easy, but for the fact that, of the six spacers sent, four were short and two were long. Am not sure whether they should all have been short or long, or three of each size - but either way I now have a wonky light and am awaiting a call back from customer services to sort it out. Not best pleased.

Stylish shade at a bargain price
This shade is so lovely I ordered an extra one as soon as it arrived! We don't like OTT shades, and this manages to be discreet and stylish at the same time. We now have 3 in our living/ dining area, and have had several admiring comments.

Really pleased with the fitting. In my opinion the type of bulb to use does need careful consideration.

I purchased 3 of these shades for my new kitchen, they are well made, easy to fit and are just the look we want, very impressed and will certainly shop at John Lewis again
