John Lewis Rollo Wall Light
this is a nice wall light but spoilt by the 120w halogen bulb which is way too bright (and a bit of a energy monster) for most internal situations. This type of bulb is typically used in flood light applications! The lack of low energy alternative bulbs restricts its usefulness. I stripped out the halogen bulb holder and fitted a screw bulb holder using a suitable bracket. This is how the light should have been configured in the first place.

Simple, understated and very effective
Took a long time looking for something that would provide the necessary light and was unobtrusive. This light fitting did exactly that. Excellent product.

Bought four of these to use in a large new lounge - on dimmer switch.
Look lovely in place and allows us to have bright light when required or reduced to softer 'mood' lighting on the dimmer.
Very understated style, blending in to the wall, just as we imagined.
Would buy again!

How may watts!!!
Not a review really - Fell in love with this design in store a while ago. Was going to buy when we decorate in a few weeks, but at a rating of 120 watts we certainly won't be buying!

Sleek, Stylish, Contemporary Lights
Purchased 6 of these for my bedroom and living room. I love their understated design - they provide the minimalist look I was after and emit lots of light thanks to the frosted glass panel. (I have dimmer switches for when I want softer lighting.) The only downside is the high energy consumption of the bulbs, which are 120w each and give off a lot of heat. I've since replaced them with 118mm 5w R7S dimmable LEDs - much better! John Lewis should really look into supplying LED bulbs with their lights.

Rollo wall light
We bought two of these lights for our conservatory, I liked the simplicity of them. However they are very bright and worst of all the flies get trapped behind the glass which protects the bulb. We could not work out at first what the horrible smell was, I traced it back to the incineration of fly bodies, every time we turn the lights on, even though I check and remove any dead bodies, it happens again, flies are attracted to the bright light. I don't know the answer to this, it is a design fault, the space between the glass protector and the wall is not big enough to let the dead flies drop down, they accumulate behind the glass.
When we have the doors and windows of the conservatory open in the day, we do get flies in.
I would be grateful for any sensible suggestions.

Purchased 4 of these wall lights for our master bedroom and absolutely love them. They are very stylish with a modern look. They are bright but as the room also has bedside lamps so we do not use them all the time, also the instructions say you can fit a dimmer switch or obviously fit a lower wattage bulb. Got them delivered to my local waitrose store within a day of ordering excellent service as usual!

High energy consumption
I bought three of these and have since been trying to make more energy efficient. Sadly you can't get any low energy bulbs to fit these no matter how much you are willing to spend.
Each bulb is 120w.
Provided not trying to become more green, then these are good. Easy to install, access to bulb not difficult. Instructions and cabling very easy. Quality consistent.
Had mine for circa six months and very happy
