Rated 2 out of 5 by MissP82 If you want to shorten its height - very hard to fit
I will start by saying this light looks absolutely gorgeous, its a lovely colour, size and goes beautifully in my bedroom and I love it... However it took 4 hours to fit!!
I've got quite low ceilings in my house so the wires needed to be shortened and it was a task and a half and took my Dad who is very DIY savvy and great with electrics 4 hours to fit. The issue being that none of the cables were colour coded for earth etc, they were just all white making it completely impossible to work out which wire went where. There were tiny flicks at the end of the wires of colour but once cut to make shorter obviously completely impossible to work out. It took several attempts to get the wire combinations correct and then once cut shorter was awful to try and tighten up the rose on the ceiling. My Dad's arms were aching beyond belief by the time he had finished.
Great light, but maybe think twice if you want to shorten the cables, or pay for an electrician!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shafm Great value
Looked at lots of light but this seemed - and was - great value. If you have one make sure your ceiling rose is as large or larger though as may look too big otherwise.

We wanted a really pared back, elegant scheme and this huge light with diffuser works perfectly: we have a matching pair in the bedroom and on the main landing and they've attracted lots of compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Riversidered1986 Looks great - beware the cable
Fitted the first of two Samantha fittings, great design should be simple to fit, however we are having one shade low and one close to the ceiling. Decided to fit the one close to the ceiling and shorten the cable, what a task....the cable clamp was very difficult to reinstall (impossible without breaking the internals) and the cable cores aren't coloured however there is a tiny coloured thread that I eventually found to enable me to reconnect the correct terminals. Once the cable was shortened the job was easy and the shade looks great. Minus one star for the difficulty in shortening the cable.

We bought two of these as we have a large open plan appartment and they are gorgeous. They really look the part, very trendy, very now and fab quality. Great service from JL, great packaging and arrived quickly.

This shade looks fantastic up. It can be hung at the height of your choice and makes a statement in the room without being over powering. We have a lounge/diner so have it hung high in the lounge and lower over the dining room table. Can't say enough good things about this light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ry92 really nice ceiling light
Neutral ceiling light that would work well with many different colour schemes. I'd suggest it's perfect if you are looking for a feature light as it's pretty large and would work well in a large room / room with a high ceiling. I returned the light in the end as I opted for a more traditional chandelier but it was very nice.

This is the second Samantha Ceiling Light that I have bought - absolutely nothing I can fault about it. JL delivery amazing - ordered lunch time, delivered the morning after. As usual with JL, an excellent product and excellent service.
