John Lewis Zandra Floor Lamp
Do not buy
We have experienced the same problems with this light as Shawy64. Whenever we used the top light there was a slight buzzing noise. More annoying is the fact that the light snapped in the centre rendering it useless. Would not recommend!

didnt last long
I bought this lamp because it offered the best of both worlds, an ambience light and a reading light. it was tricky to put together but didn't take too long. when using the dimmer switch there was a slight humming electrical sound which was a bit annoying.
However the most frustrating thing was when the light just snapped at the centre join! I have had the lamp a couple of years and its been well looked after. I expect a lamp of this quality and price to last much longer so feel very disappointed

Easy to put together - my husband did it by himself in about half an hour.
Like the look of it and the dimmer switches on each light.
Havn't noticed any leaning although it is slightly wobbly could be a little unstable.
Great delivery service - we ordered on Sat and it arrived on Mon.

Zandra Floor Lamp
We bought this floor lamp in store and brought the box home. Putting it together was EXTREMELY difficult. My husband and I are good and experienced at constructing household things from instructions,etc. It was impossible to do it without 2 people, and it was really tricky and very timeconsuming.
Once installed it works well, but the bulb went (of main lamp) within 3 days meaning a special trip back to JL for another one.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS. JL you need to construct this yourselves in order to sell it.

Ordered one day, delivered the next. Looks great and no problem with the length of the supports so no leaning at all. Like the dimming switches on both parts of the light

Good during it's short life.
Bought this floor lamp over two years ago. The first time the up-lighter stopped working we assumed the bulb needed replacing. However it still failed to work, and a change of fuse failed to solve the problem either. The assistant from the John Lewis store where we had purchased the lamp said that there was no repair service available. Finally a local electrician deemed it not worth the cost of repair as the switch needed replacing. In all it had a short life span.

Do not order any of these Zandra lamps
As per the positive review above, in theory these look good. But if only had read the part about the lean on the product and pole that is 4mm too long. I ordered the chrome version and have the same problem . I do not have a hacksaw at home and this extra lenght now makes the product dangerously unstable and unusable. So not happy at all.

Nice for the price
Typical of JLP, the service was fantastic - ordered online Boxing day and delivered by 10am the next day.
I had to take 4mm off one support strut as they were machined different lengths so it leaned. Once done it is fine but some may be less handy with or less willing to use a hacksaw on a new product than me. Would buy it again looks great, sturdy and £130 less than the next best thing.
