John Lewis Jardin Semi-flush Light
Good value for money but tricky to install.
The light itself is really nice, it gives of a lovely bright but not harsh light and spreads it around the ceiling in a nice way. We have two installed in our hallway and they fill the space with a good deal of light.
Only negatives so far are that the installation is tricky, fortunately we have someone who is competent with electrics on hand to help and that a couple of the bulbs have already blown - within a couple of hours of being on. The bulbs are readily available online and inexpensive to replace so therefore not a huge problem.

Potential Faulty Product?
Ordered 2 flush ceiling lights and the matching standard lamp, The flush fitting light when fitted had multiple bulbs which would not function. We changed the light bulbs multiple times. But it was then found to be caused by the fitting in which the bulbs are fitted. It would appear there was a faulty connection.
Very, very disappointed with the quality of this item.
I would agree with the previous reviewer regarding the glass shades as the standard lamp arrived with broken glass shades and it took several returns/deliveries to resolve this.

Lovely modern light
Have just bought two of these light fittings. Very fresh, light and modern. One shade was broken on arrival, but Tunbridge Wells JL were brilliant at contacting the supplier for a replacement, which arrived in a couple of days. Very pleased all round.

Pretty light but fitting difficult
There is a warning in the fitting instructions that the glass flowers which fit around each light are very fragile, this is definitely the case - one broke when I connected it to the sprung metal collar. Extreme care is needed, I don't recommend holding the 'petals' but the stem when introducing to collar. I also had to compress the sprung metal fitting with some pliers first. Not easy.

Lovely light, would have been. Ice to be able to dim it, but otherwise great.

I did need to change this set as the first one had a dodgy arm. However this process was made so easy by the John Lewis team and I'm delighted with my pretty lights.

I bought this for my hallway after searching for the perfect light. I measured the height of my ceiling and knew it would fit with a 35cm drop. It does look beautiful up but unfortunately it hangs down too low as the fixture body is much bigger than the picture on the website. As I like the light I don't want to take it back but it will need to go to another room.
