John Lewis Plymouth Touch Task Lamp
Good looking bedroom lamp
I really like the look of this taupe coloured lamp and it fits nicely in my bedroom. The only downside to this lamp is that you cannot use a LED lightbulb if you want to use the 3 stage dimmer.

Stylish, practical and good value
The touch adjustability of this lamp means it's really un-fiddly. The fabric-covered flex is very 'now' and it's also good that the metal is brass which can be tricky to find on contemporary retro lamps. We're very pleased.

I purchased this in grey for our bedroom.
Very modern with a twist of something old.
3 different light settings and no need to hunt for the switch in the middle of the night.
Very pleased with it.

Ordered two of these in taupe as bedside lamps. One was faulty but not an issue as JL immediately sent a replacement which was fine. I do feel the quality is not that great for the price but they look good and the old-fashioned flex is a nice feature. I agree with other reviewers that the touch control is hyper sensitive which can sometimes be a nuisance, but for use as bedside lamps we quite like the fact that they only need the gentlest of touches rather than having to hit them hard like some lamps.

I ordered a pair of the John Lewis Plymouth Touch Task Lamps in taupe as they looked good in the pictures and had good reviews. They arrived within 2 days which was very good. But when I opened box the shade had to be fitted onto the stem. The chrome ring on the shade was not a good fit over the chrome part of the bulb fitting. Not a good quality product for its price! Also no bulbs included which I would have expected for the price. Returned the lamps via collect plus and had no problems with them at all. Very good service. I would NOT recommend these lamps to anyone.

I bought two of these lamps. I was thrilled with the colour and quality when I opened the package, and my teenagers thought the touch sensitive controls a real novelty. However, they have been on my teenage children's desks for about a month now, and they have begged me to remove them. These lamps are far too sensitive. If anybody leans hard on the desk or walks over the floor the lamps flicker and go on and off. They are driving my children to distraction and disrupting their revision. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone until they change the control mechanism to an on off switch.

This lamp is excellent quality, the touch facility works really well. It has a retro feel and is solid and stylish. Delighted

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 :-(
