John Lewis Pearl Table Lamp
Look great & right balance of brightness
These lamps look very pretty in our lounge and have just the right level of brightness. Having the fully on gives enough light to read and the option of the base only gives a lovely ambient light. We haven't found an issue with the heat of the base. I am thinking of buying the square based ones for another room. I would highly recommend these.

Makes me smile every time
Though we've had this pair now in our bedroom for a few months, it still never fail to make me smile when I switch this on. As with the other reviewers, this lamp is exquisite. Just to echo the comment below on the base getting hot, we've followed the bulb instruction for the main lampshade and it is really bright ( I use this for reading). As for the base, we've opted for a very low wattage and energy saving bulb ( well within the limits stated) as we tend to leave this on for hours in the night so that we don't trip over our doggies in the middle of the night! And it is always cool to the touch. One of my best buys ever.

I love the fact that the lamp base can be independently lit from the whole lamp. Gives a nice subtle glow. The base is a natural shell so you have to expect the odd imperfection. In my opinion it matters not!
Beautiful lamps - worth every penny
ps the base gets warm (not hot) - make sure you use the recommended bulbs

This is an attractive lamp and I was initially pleased with the purchase. However I think it should state on the product information that the lamp base gets very hot and therefore only suitable for some surfaces. I have had to take out the bulb because I thought it would fade my Georgian table which it was bought for,so overall I am a little disappointed.

Saw this in my local John Lewis didn't buy and instantly regretted it when I returned home. Ordered online and collected from the local Waitrose. It is so unique and being able to light just the base makes for a subtle lighting effect.

This lamp is really quite beautiful when lit - the base and shade have separate bulbs and the base casts a really lovely warm soft light - we've only had it a few weeks and it's already attracted many compliments...

Favourite feature in our bedroom
This is a stunning lamp. We only light the bases in the evening and it gives our bedroom a lovely ambience. Would definitely recommend.

I have purchased two of these lamps, and I haven't been disappointed. The base lights independently to the top, and the pearl effect is beautiful. 10/10 - highly recommended. Ordered online as no JL on the island. Great delivery service too!
