This light is great for the entryway light to our front door hallway. We had to return the first one we got because it mounted a little crooked. Both lamps that we got have marks on the bottom of the lamp shade that you can't really see unless you are looking carefully but a brand new product should not come with scuff marks on it, especially when it is wrapped in cellophane for "protection." If you get this lamp, make sure to peel off the plastic wrap on the diffuser plate AND the brown paper stuck on the other side. And like others have said, keep an eye out for where the seam of the lampshade is, and put it the direction where it's least visible. We are happy with the lampshade--it's helped update our entryway and made it feel very cozy.
I can see using this lovely light in so many locations: hallway, informal dining, guest room, office. We placed in our foyer to transition from a similar outdoor entry light visible to the foyer. This fixture blends well with the lighting scheme we are trying to maintain in our home. It is not an expensive fixture, but still we are quite satisfied with the quality and style. The parts are not glass, so we didn't have to worry with breaking glass during installation. This was a simple installation by one person. When installing, pay particular attention to the direction you want the seam of the sheer drum to face. When the light is on, you will observe a soft golden glow due to the pale ivory fabric of the interior (non-sheer) drum. The diffuser is plastic. The top of the fixture is open and projects light upon the ceiling. It uses three bulbs and generates adequate light for the foyer. I think it is quite pretty and am totally satisfied with the fixture. Thanks, Overstock, for the 12% coupon savings!
I used this in a small 10x12 office room and it is perfect! I think in any larger of a room the fixture would have been too small. The office is going to mainly be my husbands so I was trying to find a fixture that I thought was masculine enough for him to live with it (i.e. no crystals). Its' also nice that it has three bulbs in it so it's nice a bright in the room and provides really good light. There is definitely a seam in the shade that creates a dark shadow so when you're installing it or having an electrician install it for you, make sure that the seam is placed so that it is in a place where it won't be seen very often. As the title of my review states - the fixture arrived broken with a huge bend in the shade that I couldn't repair myself, but overstock sent a new replacement really quickly. I'm very happy with this item.
Subtle, elegant, modern. PERFECT. I am trying to replace all the - stock - light fixtures throughout my new home. This light is wonderful. In reading some of the reviews before I purchased - one talked about a - blueish - glow. I didn't find this, thankfully.
This is a nice looking light. It looks white when its off in daylight but the cover looks sort of beige - NOT WHITE - at night when the light is on which I'm not crazy about. Also, be warned, you can't use a dimmer with this light. For some reason it doesn't work with a dimmer. It's a classy looking light though for a hallway or perhaps a semi-formal dining room. For the price I would recommend it.
This light looks nice from the profile but underneath it looks cheap due to it having a plastic diffuser. The diffuser I received was irregularly cut and will not fit properly into the light. The lighting it gives off has a rather washed out effect. It is bright enough but the shades just don't add to the light quality but rather detract from it. Give this one a miss.
I really like this light, very elegant and the off-white fabric has just a hint of shimmer. There is a noticeable seam in the shade to consider. When I took the fixture out of the box, the stem with the 3 light bulb housing pieces was not perpendicular to the base that sits at the ceiling. I had to take it apart and reassemble it to get it to sit straight. It is not a heavy light, while it's pretty, the materials and construction quality is just so-so. I got it on sale though, so for the price I am pretty happy.
This overhead lamp is better than it appears in the photo. The quality and craftsmanship make the lamp seem a lot more expensive than it is. I ordered two of these and replaced awful overhead lighting in my new home. These shades still offer plenty of light, but they add a wonderful ambiance to the rooms.
