Q & As


John Lewis Penelope Task Lamp 4.1 5 37 37
Love this lamp Have had this lamp for over a year and still love it. It's perfect and I'm thinking of ordering a second one. 19 June 2014
Stunning Lamp. Such a stylish lamp - we have one on each side of the bed and they look beautiful. So happy with them. 28 May 2014
Love the colour We purchased this in 'Quince' and I adore the colour. Looks great and does what it should! 08 May 2014
This lamp is a real retro style design icon! I absolutely love this lamp. It has completely transformed the look and feel of my living room. I purchased the Quince colour way which is a wonderful 1960s mustard yellow. It absolutely sings out against my duck egg blue accessories and attracts a lot of attention. I shall be buying other mustard yellow accessories to coordinate. Great value, great colour, very well made with a black and white cloth flex. 01 April 2014
Lovely retro style lamp I bought this after coveting it online for a while. Not very expensive as these things go, with some nice touches (like the lampshade being able to twist to it can be an up as well as down light). I also liked the old style of the plug cable. Others have mentioned the switch not being good. Mine seems okay, but not had this long and it is not used often so not fair to say one way or another on that point. All in all it is a very cute little table lamp. 01 April 2014
Dodgy switch? I bought one of these lamps last year and have used it a lot as a reading/task lamp. It looked good but the switch has just failed so the lamp was permanently on. I have replaced it with another desk lamp from John lewis but noticed in the store (Ipswich branch) that out of the 3 Penelope lamps on display one of those also had a dodgy switch. 31 December 2013
Faulty Lamp I bought this lamp to match one I had previously (bought several years ago and no problems with it). On getting the new lamp home I discovered that the base was loose and that the switch didn't work properly. I exchanged it for another which seemed fine for a while, but it now appears to destroy any bulb in it within a few hours (the bulb that is recommended for the lamp by John Lewis). I have tried 2 bulbs now so it looks like I will be making yet another trip to John Lewis to sort this out. Having seen some other comments, it would seem that there may be a problem with these lamps. A shame a they are really nice to look at! 21 November 2013
Avoid Lovely lamp but poor quality .bought two and both of them have faulty switches .Another review had the same problem .So not a one off problem . Will be returning for a full refund. 05 November 2013
