Kartell FLY Ceiling Light
Good, not perfect
The main shade is impressively large. It does colour the room (orange for us) especially if you use the provided bulb (which is also quite inefficient and slow to warm up). Better with a downward pointing LED bulb. Quite fiddly to fit and the ceiling rose doesn't cap the wires very neatly. Lead far too long and then hard to re-strip the flex. Nice but I'd expect better design detail for the price.

Well made and well packaged with an extra bonus of the large bulb included aswell!

The plastic shade is like a magnet for dust, which looks ghastly when you switch the light on. It's pretty much impossible to clean satisfactorily, and scratches if you look at it. I'm so disappointed!

Gorgeous 60's light, love the colour
We bought this one in orange. Putting it up wasn't too difficult. The thing that annoyed me was that we have a dimmer on this light switch and after reading this on the included bulb box, it specifically said the bulb wasn't suitable for dimmers OR electronic switches (????). We bought another bulb from Amazon hoping this one won't blow up. Nevertheless, we love the light, it has a lovely ambiance feeling and it really suits the room. It's big and stylish. You do see the dust easily but you can't be too fussy! Overall really love the light.

A real statement piece!
We bought this in the zingy orange colour which gives a nice subdued atmosphere. This is a really stylish contemporary light and makes a big impact in a room. My husband fitted it himself without any problems at all. The oversized lightbulb is great. The light is a design classic and works really well in our Georgian home. We just love it.

Kartell Ceiling light
We bought this light fitting to go in our sitting room. We loved the fact it is modern and contemporary. As per previous reviews the actual hanging wire (lead) is very long and you will need to cut this short according to your ceiling height.
We love the effect the light has given to our new home.

Rated as 'easy" to put up by the person who fitted it.
everyone intrigued by the strange extra floating "lights"

We love the light but were dissappointed that the bulb was broken when we received it.
