Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Don't use LED's and check the condition before you buy The quality control on these is not great I fear. Having bought one recently I was put out that there were two tiny chips inside the shade, (made worse when the light was on) along with one on the outside and having to return it. Having returned this I checked another in store which had more (different type) marks on the inner shade. I found one that was okay, only find on opening at home found a mark on the base! its liveable and I may or may not return it yet I'm not sure Also don't use led's as the size of these bulbs mean they project beyond the shade, just use a golfball type. 12 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and functional! I love this lamp. It is very very stylish with the mid-century vibe that I love, but it is also very functional, providing plenty of light. The chartreuse looks great on my bedside table. 03 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bought two, both dented and marked We bought two lamps for the bedroom and unfortunately we had to take them both back as they both had dented bases and paint imperfections. I would have bought some replacements, but I noticed the display versions were also dented! Very disappointing from John Lewis. 08 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Light bulb was blown out within an hour and switch is already loose. The switch on the display lamp in store was broken so suppose it's only a matter of time before it breaks completely. I will be return this lamp as soon as I can. 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great desk light Great little task light perfect for our home office. We found a 30w bulb was more than enough light for this 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Beuaitful, functional design I bought two of these lamps for bedside reading purely for their gorgeous design and colour options - I have two of the yellow ones. They are perfect! The the only thing I would critic is the on/off switch - this can be quite hard at times to know which way to turn it and being too heavy handed might break the switch. But this is certainly something I will learn to live with. I love the cloth-covered cord as well - a really nice detail to a beautiful product. 09 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful and Powerful Very nice task lamp, lovely colour and evenly spreads out the light for bedtime reading. It's a nice design and doesn't take up too much space on the nightstand. 18 November 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beautiful but didn't last long! I agree it's a piece of beautiful design but I can't switch it on again after just over two years of moderate use. Changing light bulbs and fuses hasn't helped and the two year guarantee has just run out. I'm very disappointed. :( 25 September 2014
