John Lewis Leonis Pendant
Beautiful product but very heavy. Not suitable for plasterboard ceiling
This is a lovely ceiling lamp which diffuses light really nicely. We bought it for our hall but when we opened it, the instructions recommend it to be hung from ceiling joists to support the weight. We couldn't do this as we have a plasterboard ceiling. Watch out for this. It's a really heavy light. The last thing you want is this falling down from the ceiling and pulling the plaster down or worse still landing on someone! Ours was also badly finished: mishapen and the holes were badly drilled, which I'm sure was a one off. As always got great service from JL when we took it back.

Beautiful and worth every penny
We purchased three of these for our lounge after looking at many others. Was a little apprehensive as we really were looking for light fittings rather than just a shade. How could I have been more wrong! They are easy to fit and absolutely stunning when lit especially in the evenings. Very pretty reflections around the room. We have had so many comments on them. One was initially broken as I imagine quite difficult to transport as they are plaster but John Lewis very quickly replaced it. I ordered the two table lamps from the range too which now sit nicely on the fireplace.

Expensive but stunning effect, especially with a 6000k LED bulb, the only criticism is that the globe is cast in two halves and joined together - you can see the join when lit because the perforations are non-uniform on the join, otherwise I would have given 5*

Leonis pendant light
Fitted this in son's bedroom. Aesthetically very good. The look is crisp and light and the light looks great when on, with the light reflecting through all the holes. However, the only consideration is the brightness of it. It's NOT bright when the recommended bulb is put in. I'd recommend this for rooms where strong light is not a requirement as it creates more of a softer glow.

We bought this to hang in our conservatory. We looked at more than 30 different lights and had at least 8 delivered to the house. We are so glad we chose this one. It's simple and understated during the day but when it's switched on at night, it looks amazing. Really easy to hang, with plenty of cable which can be cut with ease. Couldnt recommend this highly enough!

Bought 2 of these lamps to sit over a new kitchen island. One of the products was damaged but replaced within 2 days by John Lewis so great service. They look fabulous and as the description says, at night, they make a lovely pattern on the ceiling and walls. Very pleased and am sure that they will attract positive remarks.

Bought this light for our dark downstairs bathroom, and it is simply stunning.. When it's switched on, it looks like lots of blingy diamonds & has been admired by all our friends and family, more than any of the other 6 lights fitted at same time! East to fit, plenty cable to hang and the cable straightened out after a few days. Am tempted to buy more of the range..well done John Lewis!
