Rated 5 out of 5 by Martin Bone Excellent quality
This is a good looking contemporary light fitting. The chrome and glass mix well. I would not rely on this to be your only light source. The total is only 100W and we have 2 of them which do not fully light our small lounge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JM, Glasgow Attractive but poorly designed
The base on this lamp holds the low-voltage transformer but the housing is not deep enough to also hold the connector block for the incoming mains supply so if you have a flat ceiling with a small hole where the wire comes through you will have to cut a hole in your ceiling to create room for the connector block unless you carefully cut the connector block into separate parts for each of the Live, neutral, earth and loop-in connections and squeeze them all into the housing. Modern houses have foil-backed plasterboard as a vapour barrier between the warm room and cold loft so you will be breaching the vapour barrier if you cut a hole. Also, the bayonet-style attachment to the ceiling bracket is so tight that the wires exiting the transformer are crushed when the bracket is fitted. Mine as received already showed a cut in the insulation of these wires by the bracket. The bracket itself is not the full diameter of the base housing so tightening the screws will distort the base - I fitted 2 small tubular spacers to mine (cut from a frame fixer) to allow better tightening of the scews. For the sake of a slightly deeper base and proper size of bracket, the quality of this product has been compromised and installation made more difficult. Very poor design. It may be CE marked but I wonder whether anyone looks at these products technically to see whether they are fit for purpose. Other lamps in Homebase appear to have a similar base.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Westleton Looks nice
Bought this chrome fitting to replace a gold fitting light, looks a little small now its in place. Bought a dimmer switch to go with it not realising the light will not take a dimmer my fault didn't check the instructions! Does not throw out a lot of light have to have lamps about, will change it over when I fine a more suitable one but looks fine for now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gazza Good value...BUT
Great looking product, easy to fix and overall good value.
The only thing thats disappointing is that just 4 weeks after installing two of these lights in my lounge, both have bulbs blown already and I rarely use them as I tend to use side lamps.
Not sure if it's the qulity of the bulbs supplied or ......???

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruno Good looking light ftting
Was pleased with this fitting all round really. Looks geat in my lounge. I was a bit unsure weather of not it would give out enough light in my room as it was hard to tell by looking at the display in store but it gives plenty of even light throughout the room and looks great. It is also easy to install allthough the glass shades are perhaps a little fiddly to put on but not too bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freda Lousy beautiful pair
I bought 2 of these ceiling lights, 1 for my lounge and 1 for my dining room. I am delighted with them. Just 1 disappointment , matching wall lights are not made. Only standard lamps and table lamps. So I had to shop around for "near enough" But at the end of the day , I love them.
