John Lewis Zella Floor Lamp, Antique Brass
Had one for several years. It's quite a good light though the structure is a bit wobbly. The dimmer is however noisy. At most settings, other than dimmest and brightest, there is a high pitched whine that makes it impossible to use when doing something quiet like watching television.

Brightens up a dark corner and the whole living room. Smaller reading light is very useful. Would have given 5stars but it was fiddly to put together and had trouble getting the lower struts parallel.

Good looking light
Bought this product in the stainless steel effect. Sturdy lamp and good quality. The glass bowl on the bottom of the top lamp is difficult to clean inside when flies get in it, not such a good look from underneath when the light is on with flies in. It needs 2 people to assemble. Good that it has a dimmer on the main light.. Pleased with purchase.

Zella Stainless Steel Floorlamp
First unit produced loud buzzing noise when dimmer switch function in use, buzzing no longer audible if dimmer switch off or to full 'bright' capacity.
However, just received replacement and although faint buzzing noise when dimmer in use, it is nowhere near as loud as on previous unit.
JL have assured me that the reports of buzzing noise not indicative of all reports received about this product.
Therefore, I am keeping this floor lamp as it looks nice and seems sturdy.
Just hoping customer reviews regarding blowing bulbs are isolated incidents too.
I am pleased with the look of this floor lamp,
and now no irritating buzzing can enjoy the ambient affect of dimmer feature too.
Certainly do not wish to replace again as unpacking and assembly a little fiddly, best with two able bodies, we did in circa. 25 minutes though!

Looks good; works well.
Carried this home from the store in town on the bus. It was not the simplest package to carry but manageable. Putting it together is not difficult. Just follow the instructions. I did manage to twist the two long uprights when I tightened the final bolts underneath the base but this was easily corrected when I had the stand upright. The top light gives a good spread of light in the room and the built in dimmer switch is a useful addition. The lower reading light is very bright and makes reading much easier for me. The angle can be moved easily. All in all a very nice lamp to have in the room.

Instruction a bit ropey, however, it was easy to assemble. All done and dusted within 20 minutes

Simple, Elegant, bright
Delightful to have this Floor lamp, prompt delivery, unpacked and was ready to use. I really like the extra lamp that can be focused to read.

Good looking floor lamp
Contrary to many previous reviews (and to my surprise) I had no problems assembling this lamp. An attractive modern lamp, also very practical with a flexible reading lamp.
However uplighter (linear halogen) bulb blew after a few uses and this seems to be a regular occurrence judging from previous reviews. Replacement bulbs not expensive but clearly a problem with these bulbs.
Nonetheless pleased with my purchase and will remain so as long as bulbs don't keep blowing.
