John Lewis Ion LED Uplighter Table Light in Chrome: Review

John Lewis Ion Led Uplighter Table Light, ChromeIn 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?

      It’s awful isn’t it – so glad it’s not just me that does it though :D. I hope you manage to find one :) x

      It’s so cute in size I was expecting it to be quite big and a bit of a statement light but I like it so much more like this! x

      The light would be great for that – I was saying it would be great to use in dark cupboards just because it is that sort of light and it fits in your hand! x

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      It’s awful turning the main light on when you have been asleep isn’t it :( and you just see it infront of your eyes for ages after x

    But a little expensive

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      I guess it depends on what your budget is and what you want to do with a room – if you want to make a feature of something it could well be the perfect light :) x

    I personally like it with a very sleek design and I’m sure my husband would, too. Only problem is….the kids! I imagine they would try to use it as a flashlight! HA HA.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      Haha it would make an amazing flash light I have to say the beam is so bright :) x

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      It’s amazing for lighting up even the darkest area :) I hope you find something like it :) x

    Love it Love it!
    What a great idea to have!
    Love that it’s mobile and you can use it in many rooms in your home. I will definitely use it in my sons room. He leaves a light on all night long so this would save me the worries about him at night. Thanks for sharing your great review!

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      Aw your welcome it’s amazing honestly I would never have thought it would have been quite as brilliant as it is. x

  6. TJ Sims   •  

    I love the design of this light! It would look great in any of our rooms here! My husband thinks I’m crazy because I love lights on in the house…all the time. Haha. This would go great with my light obsession. :)

  7. Pam   •  

    I like the sleek design but would have to hate to buy a new lamp when the light bulb went out.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      That’s the one side that worries me I’m hoping it will last for a long time :) x

  8. Akhil   •  

    This is something different actually…I’ve never seen such kinds of LED’s so cute. No one can reject this product. Thank you for sharing this :)

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      It’s a shame isn’t it perhaps they will look to change that in the future :) x

  9. Samantha   •  

    Love the design on this..My kids would use it for a flash light. we have Funky lights that take forever to light up a room and this would come in handy for the bathrooms especially in the middle of the night

      It’s really lovely and I couldn’t believe how much light it does let off :) x

  10. Corinne   •  

    I love that it is so small so you can use it in so many different places. Will definitely have to look into getting one or two of these for the winter when we have such short days and long nights. I miss the sunlight in the winter!

      It’s a really great design, it’s the only downside isn’t it :( hopefully they might rethink it for the future :) x

  11. Mitch   •  

    I would love to have that for the next blackout!

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey   •     Author

      I’m hoping they might change that in future models perhaps :) that would make it perfect :) x

  12. Pam   •  

    I would love this lamp for my bedroom. Small so it doesn’t take up much space but still packs a punch….or light!

    Not sure this is for smokers, when it’s switched off it looks a bit like an ashtray.

  14. Michelle H   •  

    That seems like a lot of money for something that can’t be replaced when it quits working, but you are right about LED’s lasting forever, so maybe it would be all right.

  15. Healy Harpster   •  

    I’m glad it is available online. I need one of this for my girl’s bedroom.
