Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Having a dull north facing living room this lamp has totally solved my problem with reading in poor light - a really high quality, stylish lamp with excellent directional light that now makes it a joy to read, with total ease.. Could not be simpler to use, with one switch which also controls the dimmer. The compact base is heavy and so is sturdy, therefore, highly unlikely to topple over, if knocked, and the lamp's design discretely fits in, next to the settee. Pleased as punch with it and would highly recommend this lamp, particularly to serious readers! - and to those with hobbies that require an excellent light source. 04 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it says on the label! This is as described, illumination for serious readers who need strong and clear illumination. We can now do the crossword on dull, cloudy mornings without squinting at the clues. 11 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW ! This has made a real difference, I can now read newspapers etc with no problems at all. Worth every penny 27 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex LED floor lamp Been looking for a good floor lamp for a while and this fits the bill for me. Controllable (intensity) directional crisp light. Stable in a stylish form. My one concern is how long the flexible adjustment will last before going loose? I suspect that having positioned and adjusted the light I will not need to change it often giving it good longevity. My one suggested improvement would be to have have the lamp retain its intensity setting when switched off from the mains. It is retained in standby mode but not when switched off at the wall socket. I will be purchasing a second one of these. 20 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well received present. I bought this for my husband. He is delighted ! The floor lamp is sturdy and stylish. It is easily adjustable with handy switch. Most importantly it gives a fantastic reading light without getting hot. Highly recommended. 03 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best Light on the Planet! I bought my lamp a few weeks ago, and after having it only a short period of time, it has made such a difference! I can now see better when playing my oboe, and can just move the light head easily to read works from my favourite author, Ian Fleming. 19 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the box The design of the light is superb. It’s very easy to use and manoeuvre and the light head is cold to the touch. It’s very pleasant and great for reading my Jane Austen novels and a brilliant help to my sight as I have RP. 26 October 2012
