Horrible to installbjhurdyLooks nice but is horrid to install. Doesn't fit a UK ceiling rose or their fixings. You'll need to buy a cup hook to fix to the ceiling and when you do it doesn't fit tight to the ceiling or flush. The extra long cord is it's only positive.2
Lamp cordGogie 49Cord does exactly as it should But for me thd rather brassy gold looks cheap. It would be better in a bronze colour. I will change it when I find something that looks a bit better.3
Great ceiling cordHej69This great ceiling cord set comes with ‘everything’ you need, good length of cable and easy connection block. The normal socket for thread bulbs, takes both normal bulbs and LED versions. Well done IKEA5
Terrible light fittingLacyBellAs this is held up by a hook rather than a screw plate it dangles away from the ceiling looking awful. We have taken it down and replaced with a different fitting.1
Cheap and relatively easy to fit, flawed designLeopold005Looking at these on the website and hanging up in store, these looked like the perfect accompaniment to the Nymo lamp shades, so I bagged a couple seeing as they were so cheap. Unfortunately, on trying to install them, I discovered why. 1. The amount of cord supplied is insane. Three metres is way more than the average home would ever need. If I'd hung this at the maximum length, my cat would've been banging her head on it! And to hide it all away in the top is nigh on impossible, so I ended up chopping off around two metres of the cable and refitting it. 2. Using a hook to support the cable seems like a good idea in theory, but I found that mounting one of them was made very tricky by the absence of a suitable beam where the previous light had been installed, meaning I've now got a sizeable hole where that used to be which isn't covered by this new fitting. 3. Try as I might, I cannot get the cover to fit flush to the ceiling no matter what I do. Even if I get it close, the first knock it gets sees it drop down. I'd hate to resort to using sealant to fit this, but it looks like there's no other option. I don't know how this was ever going to work, using a small plastic threaded grommet to support the whole thing on the wire with a very feeble grip. It's cheap and relatively easy to install, plus I like the look of it when I can get it to be more or less flush, but the inherent design issues spoil what should look fantastic. I'm now looking at options to sort this out properly.1
Don’t waste your money.AmyLou86Flawed design. Firstly no ceiling hook supplied. Then once you’ve been and got one there is no way to secure it properly without it hanging down. I’m surprised, with all the reviews saying the same thing, that Ikea are still selling these.1
Light unitDisco81Went to fit the light unit and found that no matter how much I tried the plastic cup would not stay flush to the ceiling making it look terrible so did not use1
Looks goodMnc 2The light cord looks fantastic, the only downside is the amount of cord that is enclosed in the casing after adjusting the length makes it very hard to get the casing to sit tight against the sealing, I am on my fourth try so far.3
Daft designergkegbvThe cord set has a design in which it is extremely difficult to tighten the cup up to the ceiling. It shows a hook is required but one is not included (how many people already have a hook hanging from their ceiling beside the light cable?). Even then results aren't great.1
