I installed this lamp in about 30 minutes, with the assistance of my wife (holding the lamp while I fastened everything to the ceiling). The metal plate at the very top is 5" in diameter, if you have a medallion or pendant on your ceiling. The cork gives the lamp a nice earthly glow to the sides, the uncovered top allows the bulbs to illuminate the room well, and the frosted glass bottom allows for pleasant, bright lighting underneath. In a 15x12 room, this ceiling lamp lights up the whole room pleasantly -- not too bright, not too dim. There are two seams along the side, but I barely notice them. Very pleased, especially for the low price.
This is awesome! We used the shortest of the four extender pieces and it is PERFECT in our dining room on 8' ceilings. Its great they included 2 different extender sizes (3 longs and a short). Anyone can create the perfect size. The awesome cork means it looks super modern but yet not too industrial. I do all my own electrical and this is one of the easiest fixtures I've ever installed! Very light weight, and easy to connect to the existing box (I removed an old brass fixture). The ceiling mount is wide enough to cover the former feature but not too big at all. Everything arrived safe and sound in the shipping box, I was a bit worried about ordering a light fixture online, but not a problem at all! Love the natural cork look, highly recommend this fixture!
This is not an incredibly expensive light, so it's a bit lightweight. It's not going to look like you paid a million dollars for it. However, I think it's beautiful. I put in 100w equivalent LED bulbs and it lights up the entire room thanks to the open top. The light that comes out the sides is warm and in a really cool pattern, so it's not bright in your eyes--exactly what you'd want. I didn't experience any trouble with the cork peeling off, as was described in earlier reviews. It arrived in perfect condition.
The cork shade adds a unique and earthy element to warm up a room (assuming the room needs warming). It lets off a lot of light with three bulbs and I use it as the only light source in a small kitchen that used to have fluorescent lighting. I was worried it wouldn't be enough, but it works just fine for me. I almost thought about putting in pot lights, but went with this fixture because it was less expensive and hoped for the best. It worked out really well. It probably wouldn't be enough for a larger kitchen as the only light source, but it's a cool statement piece.
We got this for our kitchen nook, and it's great. Everyone who sees it comments on how much they love it and ask how where we got it, and it puts out a good amount of light. The only thing I would say is that some of the cork peeled off in shipping, but it's hardly noticeable and I just put that side to the wall, so it doesn't bother me.
I've actually never written a product review before, however when Overstock suggested I do so. I thought since I'm extremely pleased with the light fixture sure why not. The quality exceeded my expectations. This is a well made fixture one would expect at a much higher price point. It completely updates my living room to a modern yet retro style I was looking for. The free shipping and speedy delivery were also great. I would highly recommend this light fixture. Thanks
I am super picky with decor. I LOVE the look of this light. It is used in a dining room that has been converted to an office. The ceiling is high so I used the extension. The look is amazing; so much nicer and more interesting than a generic, boring, old-fashioned light. It works well with contemporary decor. The light showing through the cork looks beautiful. Because I use it in an office, I wish I had bought Bright White CFC bulbs instead of Soft White, which provides slightly less light than I would like at night. My only complaint is the dimmer doesn't work as well as it should. I believe it's the lamp because I think I tried the dimmer on the old light and don't recall a problem. However I replaced that light when I moved in so I can't be positive. I rated quality as "good" because of the dimmer, though I concede it's possible that it's my switch's fault. When dimming the light, sometimes it will shut off before the dimmer goes down all the way. Not a huge issue but should work better all the way down the dimming range.
I adore this light. The cork shade is unique, yet matches anything, it puts out a great amount of light and at 22 inches, it fills the room much more fully than some smaller pendants. The diffuser glass on the bottom makes it look very polished. It wasn't too difficult to assemble and they included several chrome extenders for taller ceilings. The finished product looks amazing. It's only been up a few weeks but has gotten lots of compliments!
LOVE this fitting. Looks incredibly expensive. Very tasteful. Had electrician fit and he said it was an was install. Everybody compliments it. Highly recommend if wanting designer look at reasonable price. Delivery impeccable as always from OS.com
