I purchased the large version for the hall. Putting it together wasn't too bad but the chrome fittings which hold on the bottom glass dome were awkward to fit.
The biggest problem was fitting the unit to the ceiling. The unit arrived with three chrome spacers already attached to it. After installing it there was a large gap between the fitting and ceiling which showed the cables etc.
I took down the fitting, removed the chrome spacers and refitted it pushing the connector block into the ceiling. It was the only way to get it looking ok. Nowhere in the instructions could I see these spacers.
After all that the look ok, but wouldn't buy one again.

Purchased a matching pair to suit long room. Extremely satisfied with the effect. Easy installation from a well packaged product, and easy to follow assembly instructions. Recommend.

We purchased a pair of Newport large flush lights for the lounge of our new penthouse apartment. We needed flush fitments as there was restricted height in our lounge. Our decor is essentially period but chandelier type flush fittings are not available so we chose the Newport as it had frosted glass and a circular mirror surround. The Newports are superb and blend in beautifully with our decor. The Newports use economy type bulbs that were also available in Homebase's own brand and It helped that there was 15% off of everything at Homebase that weekend. We will be returning to Homebase to purchase a pair of the matching smaller Newports for the hall and landing. Great purchase

Rated 1 out of 5 by 0116wise Terrible Product
I am very practical but I found this to be the most difficult light unit ever to fit. Other reviews giving 5 stars and saying "easy to fit" must be related to a different product. The central domed glass was too big and had to be modified - good luck with that. You need to offer up two pieces of glass at the same time whilst you attach the retaining nuts so it is best with two people. I am not looking forward to dismantling it for cleaning. A terrible product that I wish I had not bought. You have been warned!
