Q & As

John Lewis Limbo Touch Lamp 3.7 5 36 36
Lovely Small Table Lamp This is a good value small table lamp. Very modern looking and gives off a good light for reading. Very pleased with this purchase. 20 May 2014
Excellent table lamp! I purchased this table lamp over 18 months ago and have had no problems with it. However, a few months ago I accidentally broke the glass shade! I contacted JL, told them what happened and they gave me the details of their supplier. A replacement shade was delivered within 5 days! Extremely prompt and efficient service from JL and the supplier! 13 February 2014
Limbo touch lamp I really liked this but it got knocked over and the shade broke. I only then found out that this could not be replaced so, disappointingly, had to throw it away. 31 January 2014
Mind of its own. Purchased two off these, one is fine but the other has a mind of its own, it will flicker on and off between its three settings, but more disconcerting is that it will on occasions turn it self on during the night!! and as we bought these in 2010 they are out of gaurantee. 23 October 2013
Poor for the price & JL Bought two as bedside lamps one only worked to be lit once so was faulty & cable in side of base instead of rear so could not be used for intended purpose. Generally poor quality and glass edges rough. Returned for refund. 08 September 2013
Poor quality control Bought two of these this morning. Assembled the first one (assembly was very fiddly), and the shade was off-centre. Thought this might be ok. Then unpacked the second. Only one screw (not two) was included; the screw hole was too big, so the screw repeatedly fell out, meaning the shade could not be fixed to the base. I did try to check reviews while I was in the store, but there was no wifi or 3G. If I had checked, I would have realised the problems others have had. Now returning both lamps for a refund. 20 August 2013
Top heavy, easily broken. Not fit for purpose! These lamps look great but be warned! If using as a bedside lamp, be careful when you reach out in the night to 'touch turn' it on - you have to be very carefully as they are top heavy and can topple over easily resulting in a broken shade! Also, it's very fiddly to attach the shade to the base, you will need nimble fingers to align the two little plastic washers each side of the little screw. I would not recommend these as a bedside light and I would highly recommend you have some 'hands on' with these in store before ordering online. 09 July 2013
Poor Quality We bought two of these on line to save going to the Edinburgh store. We liked the style. We found that one of the lamps had an uneven base as a result of poor manufacture, it also had a chip on the shade. We returned this to the store to get replacement. We checked the replacement in store and found it was worse, this time the column was loose. The next one was OK. four lamps checked two faulty. To add insult to injury it cost us £4.95 for the parking for 20 minutes in the John Lewis part of the NCP. Judging from the other reviews and our own experiences, the quality of this product is very variable. 03 April 2013
