Rated 4 out of 5 by Exige28 Looks amazing, nightmare to fit
This lampshade looks spectacular when fitted. The design isn't over the top but has a unique style that works well in our classically decorated home. We've used a frosted LED down bulb that creates a soft light (we used an unfrosted full bulb in our other shade which allows the shade's holes to create a dotted pattern throughout the room when it's dark outside). We've used this lampshade in the lounge and it's sister "ball" shade in our dining room.
I would however have to say that it was an absolute nightmare to fit. No ceiling screw is provided, we had to purchase that separately (not a huge deal). The ceiling cup however has a very small screw with only a tiny area to thread into, our electrician threaded this on both the shades he fitted and had to wedge them up with some copper wire (he's an experienced and trusted electrician, these really were a pain to fit). The cup itself was a little bent out of shape as well which was a shame.
All in all though, after the pain of putting them up they do look great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Paulbmth Beautiful but flawed
It took three attempts to finally get one of these that was not damaged. We then discovered - as our electrician was about to fit it - that the light is not supplied with any fittings.
It's totally unacceptable that a light at this price does not come with everything needed to install it.

Shame at the price you have to buy your own hook. And I use my own choc block
Also it took three to get one that was not damaged
putting that aside it is a lovely lamp but they need to get the little things with it right for that cost

Rated 5 out of 5 by rickyowl unusual and beautiful
We bought three of these lights for our hall, stairs and landing. Because the stairwell is tall we had an electrician install them. The light they create is quite stunningly beautiful, scattering bits of light in all directions as well as a pool of light down from the bulb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephi22 Absolutely Stunning
We'd admired this light fitting after a couple of trips to the Trafford Centre. We were a little worried after reading other reviews about the fitting needing to be adjusted when hung. We went ahead and purchased the light and we weren't disappointed at all. It looks absolutely stunning in our dining room and when lit throws off gorgeous shadows on the ceiling and walls. We love it and we're so glad we made the investment!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anncey So disappointing
My first lampshade was badly dented but in true John Lewis style it was instantly refunded. The second was difficult to hang, is unlevel and within 10 months completely rusty. I read poor reviews of this attractive and unusual light but thought as it was John Lewis they must be exaggerated, but how wrong I was! Be prepared to be disappointed.

We bought this over a year ago it still looks beautiful and hangs very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dubs43 Beautiful ceiling light
The colour and style of this ceiling light enhances the room enormously while providing a soft central light. Need to get an appropriate bulb for the light to look its best.
