Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveChew Looks really good
These were great for the room they are in. Not over the top and nicely retro.
The first one was a pain to fit as I tried to piece it together in situ onto the light fitting. The second was a sinch -, just fit it together before fitting to the lamp holder. You'll have just enough space to squeeze your hands through the smaller opening and fit the lamp holders second sleeve. Done in a fraction of the time and no swearing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Roos Really usefdul product!
I bought several of these shades, in both white and mocha, for use in 4 rooms
of the house. They are very attractive, well finished and good value for money. The
important thing to remember is that they exhibit their best effect when used with halogen bulbs. I tried them with both LED and energy saving bulbs, but both of these bulbs were not bright enough to display the full 3-tier effect of the lamps.
I also found some of the other comments about the difficulty in installing them
quite amusing! The trick is to assemble them in the original carton itself and then
hang them up - it took me less than five minutes!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ClothesAddict Easy to assemble - nice shade
I read the other reviews so didn't even look at the instructions. Put the shade together very easily (the tool that came with the bits and pieces was useless). Shade was up in 10 mins. Looks great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ab90 Poor fit and instructions
I really liked the look of these lights until I tried to assemble them. The instructions tell you to assemble the light layer by layer on the ceiling light fitting. This proves impossible because you have to add 3 spacers to the screws for each layer of the light which just fall off whilst trying to balance on a ladder. Having read some reviews I realised the light could be assembled first and then put up. So I tried this quite successfully. However, once up the light hung at an awkward angle. The fitting was too big and it rocked. I spent all day trying to solve this with washers and reducers until I realised all this was in vain because the inside of the light had been welded unevenly so even with a perfect fit it will hang lopsided. I bought 4 of these in different colours for the lounge and hallway of my first new home. I am really disappointed in John Lewis because your products are advertised as good quality. I have recently spent thousands of pounds in John Lewis for my new home and feel very disappointed. I have wasted a day and still have no lights. This is not what I expect and I will be returning them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MaiaP Very fiddly to put up !
Although this is a very stylish retro lampshade & quite easy to assemble on the table and all the pieces were there when if came to hanging from electric fitting you needed very tiny fingers to get inside to attach and then the bulb wasn't easy to fit either for the same reason Have only just hung them, I have 2 but pleased with the overall look.

These look very stylish, although they are a bit expensive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by VJS61 Inadequate fixings
I bought three of these Harvey light fittings for my new kitchen and whilst they look delightful I realise I should have heeded the warnings from other reviewers. Unfortunately, none of the lights had screw fittings that worked properly to join each piece together and consequently were impossible to assemble. They were either too long or had no thread to screw into. I have returned all three and purchased alternatives. It seems somewhat disingenuous to list them under the 'easy-to-fit' category!
