John Lewis Plymouth Touch Task Lamp
I really liked the look of this lamp. Bought two for bedside, along with matching ceiling light.
Bedside lights did not come with any instructions and it has become a night time ritual as to how many times we have to 'hit' the lamp before it will turn off!
Would rather have bought one with a switch if I knew it was going to be this sensitive :-(

This is a truly beautiful lamp & the touch activation is brilliant so you don't have to search around for the switch! Gives a lovely glow on all dimmer settings and is a good size

Great bedside lamp
I bought this lamp in taupe for my guest bedroom, paired with the Plymouth ceiling light Pendant (also in Taupe). I especially like the touch functionality for a guest room - great for guests not to have to search for a switch in the dark! Lamp looks great and is of good quality. My guests have all commented on how much they like the lamp, especially its 'old-fashioned' cable.

Great lamp! Easy to use and gives off good light - good to have a choice of light settings

A lovely touch-activated lamp
I bought this lamp for my office, and I am very happy with the way it looks and works. It is not quite as advertised, but I am still very happy about it.
Be warned, for instance, that the stem looks less brassy than on the picture. In fact, it's a different stem altogether, with a hinge next to the shade rather than at the bottom. The hinge on top allows you to move the shade in a way that probably wouldn't be possible with the version pictured on the website.
It also turns out that the lamp is touch activated, which confused me a little as it was not indicated on the website, and I started by looking for a switch and thought that a piece of plastic was a dimmer. Once I realised my mistake, I was able to enjoy this very nice lamp, which has 3 different levels of lighting (tap once on the base to go up, a fourth tap turns the lamp off). The fact that it is touch sensitive makes it easier to use, as you don't need to look for the switch.
