John Lewis Skyla Wall Light
Nice little light
Fitted these in the bedroom either side of the bed. The mounting holes don't line up with screw holes on a standard round conduit box if the cable entry to the box is vertical or horizontal which means the cord doesn't hang directly down. Bit odd I thought. I removed the switch and fitted a standard switch plate in the centre of the wall above the headboard.
I'm a qualified electrician so fitting wasn't a problem for me at all and I don't think anyone with a little knowledge would have any problems fitting them. If in doubt get a professional to fit them!

Very classy item.
I have just redecorated my kitchen/dining room in brilliant white paint, this wall light now compliments the overall effect.

Not very well made.....
Really rather poor quality, but I suppose it IS cheap. Brushed metal finish very scratched and some spots of rust. Worst thing was the brackets which were very crude and did not secure the light at all - it didn't fit against the wall square and wobbled all over the place. Luckily I am reasonably handy and was able to make a much better pair of brackets, otherwise I would have been sending them back. I wouldn't be surprised to find that people drill holes through the front to fix them to the wall.
I have had such a hard time finding a suitable light that I am sticking with these but they really aren't good enough quality. In a shop rather than on-line I might have been able to sort out a couple of acceptable ones.

Elegant well made product
Bought 2 of these as bedside lights. They are beautiful, well made, and look much more expensive than they were. We're delighted! One shade arrived broken, but it was swiftly collected and replaced with minimal hassle. Great product, great service!

Kind and pretty lighting
My recently purchased skyla wall lights are perfect. I have three of them which work beautifully with the Oaska up and down ceiling light in both design and type of glow. They have made a very plain room come to life and throw a very flattering type of light that is bright but doesn't show up everyone's wrinkles!

Good, but beware pull cord...
Bought two of these as bedside reading lights and they are attractive, with a good light for reading. Slightly disappointed when the pull cord of one of them detached after just a few uses. However, the light was promptly replaced by JL. No problems with either light since, but we are avoiding using the pull cords, and usually switch the lights on/off by the bedside switches.
