Rated 4 out of 5 by Lady Sparkie Steam Punk Style wall light
I bought this for a customer with glaucoma, who had not been able to read in bed due to her poor eyesight. We needed to be able to focus a light over her shoulder and onto the page, so the position on the wall was vital. I was really disappointed to find that, as with many wall lights, the designer had not incorporated a 'knock out' in the base. Designers seem to think that all wall lights will be installed where there is a mains cable exiting the wall, which can be terminated into the light fitting wholly within an enclosure. I ended up having to dig a notch out of the wall so that the supply cable could sit in the plaster layer of the wall, without being crushed by the rim of the fixing rose. If the customer ever wants to move her light, she will now have to have a decorator in. That said, it is a lovely looking light. Very much on trend and reasonably priced.
