Shade not replaceable
I bought the lamp as thought it looked good and that the different light levels would be useful as wanted it for a bedside lamp. The differing light levels weren't as useful as I'd expected, but I was happy enough with it until I broke the shade and am not able to replace it!
The lamp still working fine but as John Lewis don't stock the shade separately and as it's sold as a John Lewis product, have no idea where else to get a replacement shade. So wouldn't recommend it or any other John Lewis labelled products with easily breakable parts!

Stylish and functional
So pleased we spotted this light. We bought a pair and they are perfect even though they weren't what we thought we were looking for. They have clean lines and the variable brightness is very useful with the lowest setting being perfect for ambient lighting and the brightest being spot on for reading! Really pleased with this purchase.

Nice touch lamp
Looks smart and does the job well. It's a bit smaller than anticipated and the shade quite small but I wanted a touch lamp and it's only to be used in the spare bedroom so it's fine.

Stylish, but not an ideal bedside lamp
I bought this for my mother who wanted a bedside lamp. I thought that a touch on and off lamp would be ideal so that she wasn't fiddling for the switch in the dark. On reflection, the fact that it goes up through each of the brightness settings before you can turn it off again means it is not ideal for that purpose. However, I think for a living room it would be a good option - stylish and functional.

Great lamp but check shade before purchase
I have just bought my 3rd Helium lamp after breaking the shade on one of mine. The lamp is great and stylish looking and I have had no problems with it in over 5 years. However, when I bought a replacement (roughly same price as replacing the broken glass shade sadly) the shade quality was dreadful. I returned it to the store and after opening 8 more, finally found an acceptable shade. Most of them had jagged rims or flaws in the opaque. Even the new one has a small flaw. Considering the price has gone up by £10 in the last 5 years, it's not exactly the quality I have come to expect from John Lewis. I still love the lamp though, just check the shade before purchase.

A beautiful lamp but poor quality
This is a pretty lamp but has broken completely just after 1 year 3 months' use. Unfortunately it is out of the one year guarantee .
I think it is very pricey for a such a short life lamp.
