In the day I like the sunlight to be let in so I can soak it in and get those all-important goodies it gives off for us while at night I like more of a subtle glow that allows you not to fall over everything (yes I am one of those people who although I see everything all day long if I can’t see it I don’t remember where things are) but isn’t too harsh on the eyes. To help achieve that I use more lamps than the overhead lighting so when I was offered a John Lewis Ion LED Uplighter Table Light in Chrome to review I jumped at the chance.
The John Lewis Ion LED Uplighter Table Light in Chrome is so cute – from the pictures on the website I assumed it would be a much larger lamp (no I didn’t read the description) but it comes in at a sweet little 16.5cm x 3.5cm but boy it has a kick offering up a large 100 lumens.
The size of the lamp means it is just perfect to tuck into even the smallest of spots and with a switch on the cord you don’t have to struggle to the switch each time you want to turn it on and off. Designed to help set the mood the lamp looks wonderful pointed upwards placing a bright white spotlight on the celling while lets off a waterfall of light around it which in our lounge lights it all up with a beautiful glow. I can only imagine it would look beautiful in a fireplace, or being used as a spot light to light up a feature within your room – it will definitely be getting a lot of use in my home.
The only thing about the lamp that I could see as being a downside is the bulb is sadly irreplaceable so once it’s gone you have to buy a whole new lamp – that being said it is a LED bulb which of course do last a lot longer than the old light bulbs did so it probably isn’t too much of a problem (how many of us will probably change décor before the blub dies?).
Overall I am totally taken with this light it offers a design that will easily fit into most rooms and gives off a lovely mood setting glow – it really is something I would buy myself.
The John Lewis Ion LED Uplighter Table Light, Chrome comes in at £40 and can be brought both online and in store.
What do you think of the lamp, would you like it in your home?
