Initially, I chose this lampshade for it's simple design and oriental feel. Had I known it was so precarious, I may have chosen differently...
Included with the flat-packed lampshade is metal frame and a single page of indecipherable instructions. After working out that the frame is pushed through the middle of the lampshade so it retains it's spherical shape, I took extra special care not to completely destroy the lampshade just by putting it together.
Finally, after turning the paper cut out into an actual lampshade, I lowered the bulb through it and attempted to attach the metal frame to the wire of the bulb. That was when I realised that the frame is so badly designed that the end result of putting up your lampshade will be lopsided at best.
This joke of a product is really only saved by its lovely design and cheap price. It doesn't really deserve four stars, but I do actually like it, since it's currently situated above my head and not causing any trouble.

Additionally, although a couple of other reviewers stated receiving three in a pack, I only received one. However, the product description never implied that I would be sent more than one, so I don't consider this a drawback.

+ Delicate and simple design
+ Cheap
- Poor instructions
- Badly designed frame creates asymmetrical balance
- Liable to rip at any moment

4/5 for design
2/5 otherwise

Easy to set up and attach, once fitted it stays there. It doesn't look any different to the ones which cost twice as much, and, well, it's a lightshade - what else can I say?!

The internal wire frame seemed too long for the globe and would only fit by bending it a lot. My guess is that it was made for the 14 inch globe. I know these frames should be a little bent to keep the globe properly stretched - but this was too much. The "C" shaped catch for the cable snapped off and had to use a thin cable tie to keep it on. To be fair the cable was a bit thick and stiff for a light fitting and a thin cable may not have given a problem - but from memory it broke off awfully easily.

This may be OK for a light with a thin, flexible cable - but I was generally unimpressed. I have put up a few of this kind of lampshade and this wasn't a good quality one.

An excellent ceiling shade it fits perfectly in my single room. Easy to construct although a drawing instruction might be useful for those less practically inclined.

Good price, easy to fit onto the light cable to centre the light bulb in the lampshade! A 60 watt old money light bulb gives a good bright light.After a couple of years when threy've got a bit grubby grubby a new can be installed in 2 minutes.Will buy these again with the usual great Amazon service we enjoy.

I love this lampshade as it gives my room an airy and spacious feel. The problem with this though is that because it's so light, if you have a large window like me that you like to have open, it will go out of place and even fall down when the wind picks up. I used to have a larger version of this at 50cm (bought a smaller version because the lampshade was just too big) but it didn't go out of place so I'd recommend getting a slightly larger version of this if you get annoyed at constantly correcting it like me.

Other reviews of this product have both described it as easy and difficult to assemble. In a way, I think they're both right, as I found the instructions not that useful, but having already got one lampshade of this type, I was able to use it as a guide - and doing that, it was pretty easy to put in place.

As others have said, it's a lot cheaper than many alternatives, but it doesn't look cheap when in place. It's a bargain.

Granted these are flimsy, easily ripped cheap lampshades but they are also tremendous value for money and if you are careful they last for a ridiculously long time. I use the brush attachment on my Dyson to clean them but eventually they will yellow with age.

Really easy to fit, hassle free and with a simple elegance of their own. I get well over five years out of these and that is definitely value for money.
