Q & As

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hopeless product I was desperately disappointed with this product. I returned it and sent my comments to the manufacturer. It was a Christmas gift for a friend and a real downer on Christmas Day. The problem is that the fixture of the lamp to the shaft is formed by two plastic pads tightened by a screw with an instruction not to over-tighten the screw. The lamp thus slumps forward to rest on the shaft and it is impossible to fix it at the desired angle. This is a premium priced product and the design and manufacture are simply not adequate. JL should consider carefully whether you continue to offer it. 20 January 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Broken three times in a row Love the lamp – looks really pretty and casts a lovely warm glow. The problem with ordering online from John Lewis is that they'll keep sending you different but quite badly broken lamps – order in store or not at all based on my experiences, not once, not twice but three times! 16 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful classic lamp I already have versions of this lamp and shades all over my house and decided to treat myself to this one for my bedroom to match the same ceiling light. It's simple, elegant design is perfect. 31 March 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Loved it, but... This is a beautiful light. And I really enjoyed it. But, after just two years, the nylon bushes in the adjustable joint at the top and the plastic ring that holds the glass in place have become brittle and simply crumbled away. I just tried to replace the bulb and the whole thing fell apart. Admittedly the light has been on my desk and in constant use, but it's generally only had 25W bulbs in it and I wouldn't expect it to have failed so soon. 31 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mixed Design & Build Quality I recently purchased 2 of these lamps from the Edinburgh branch and generally pleased with the product however there are 2 issues that knock the rating by 1 star 1. Inconsistent build quality - one lamp base is not flat so needs to be positioned so it does not wobble on the bedside cabinet, and 2. The design of the lamp holder is poor i.e. the knurled clamp and plastic washer does not securely hold the lamp head to the post. If the above can be addressed, easily a 5 star product with the added bonus of being British made. 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous An impulse buy whilst walking through the lighting department. Both of us fell for the design and the quality. Beautiful looking lamp, lovely light that glows from the porcelain shade. Perfect for a bedside lamp. The flex is coordinated and thankfully not a standard black plastic cable which is often a distraction on many lights and lamps. Quality is excellent and it's made in England. Lovely thing 07 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great looking lamp Very impressed with product and delivery. We bought new bedside tables at the same time as the lamps. Very pleased. 08 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Delivered with base smashed Still within its bubble wrap, the light was delivered with the base smashed. If it rattles send it straight back. 02 January 2013
