Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Loved this lamp but it broke after 8 months I bought this lamp in the yellow and really loved it. However, after about 8 months it kept blowing bulbs very frequently and then the fuse would blow. Having changed the fuse and bulb three times in one weekend I decided to take it back. JL were excellent and let me exchange it without the original receipt, which was fantastic. I now have the Elliott task lamp instead. 26 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks really stylish I love these 2 lamps and I'm going to buy another 2 as bedside lights. No more fumbling for a switch and they really do look great. My husband is concerned the thin strip sticking out the back of the shade will get broken off by someone who thinks you can adjust the angle with it, but I think that's unlikely. 18 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by STYLISH, SLEEK WITH DESIGNER LOOK Great stylish lamp with an expensive designer look about it. Looks great in our bedroom. 04 August 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Stylish but not ideal Lamp is stylish, but not good for reading by, as when the shade is projected up, the light glares in the faces of other people. Being metal, it doesn't throw up much light when it faces down so isn't ideal for the corner table I got it for. I love the shape and colour, but can't have the light facing into the room at all for the reasons stated. 21 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dimensions question Looks like a great lamp - can anyone tell me the dimensions of the base? Thanks. 19 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lamp review Love the colour - funky, quirky design - very happy with it. 19 June 2015
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
