Rated 4 out of 5 by Funboxster Very stylish light
We bought this light for our dining room and it looks great. Some reviewers have complained about getting the tension right, but it's very easy. Slightly fiddly to install cables, but as an old electrician, i fitted it without problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susie118 Poor instructions but look good
Look really good but the instructions were poor. We worked out how to put them together by studying enlarged pictures of them on the website!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mcgarvellous Rise and fall
Was slightly concerned over previous reviews regarding the rise and fall but I have been quietly impressed. Have had the light for over and year and we are all very pleased with it. The base plate secures the rise and fall, if you are having difficulty returning the light to a higher position just turn the base plate to give a firmer hold to the wire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by whtara I like this shade...
This shade exceeded expectations on all counts. I have it installed, as a retro 1970s yet currently modern, even modernistic cameo, in a mid Victorian era dining room and it has attracted enormous comment. It also casts rather interesting light patterns on the ceiling above.
It is functional. Totally. To be fully accurate the "rise" part of the mechanism does not respond to being shoved back up quickly. But the whole mechanism is stable - and the set up balancing procedure is an absolute doddle.
Bulb choice is vital. The recommended (byJL) 70w bulb is probably a better bet than the 60w device recommendation - with excess heat not being an issue even after weeks of usage. The manner in which the light is layered through the three "leaves" is pretty good! (Curious to see that the JL thought police felt that it was wrong to say "pretty d**m good"!!! Yet this shade is!
Would I recommend this item to friends...well, actually I don't know because several of them simply went out and bought one for themselves. Perhaps I should ask JL for commission!!!
This is a good lamp fitting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Townhouse23 Lovely but flawed design
The design is lovely, it suits the dining room beautifully, but the flex is far too long.
Even when fully retracted it hangs only a couple of feet off the table. I cant see why anyone would need it to hang any lower
An experienced tinkerer could shorten the cable, but you need to dismantle the entire mechanism and some parts of it are just not up to be dismantled. Sadly I broke the spring and now the light fitting is in the bin.

Really lovely light - had it a while just got round to putting it up. Looks stunning in our kitchen/dining room. No problems in assembling it.
