John Lewis Rollo Wall Light
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

Easy to fit, bright light
Having got fed up with the dismal light given out by some of today's bulbs, we tried this light for the bedroom. We have been delighted with it. In fact we bought two and they light up our fairly large room admirably. They are stylish, give out a good field of light, are robust and easy to fit for the average handyman/woman. Highly recommended.

Lovely looking but design is flawed.....
I bought two of these wall lights in the early autumn and had them fitted in October when the large living room in which they were to be fitted was decorated. While they look modern and sleek and provide excellent white light, the newly painted wall above them is already becoming discoloured despite only occasional use.

Stunning wall lights!!
We purchased two of these wall lights after weeks of searching for the perfect ones to go in to our newly decorated living room. They look very stylish and give good light - just what we were looking for. They were also very easy to put up. Overall we would recommend these lights as we are very happy with the overall result!
