This product received mixed reviews but I thought I'd give it a shot because the price was sooo fair...I have three over my kitchen island and they look amazing...Not cheap like others stated! I have an upscale kitchen with granite countertops, stainless appliances, tile floor - etc... and these are totally worthy of the atmosphere....Price was not an issue for me when looking for fixtures - I was searching for a deep rich red/burgandy color and these are perfect...When they are off they look more cranberry and dark, but when they are on they have a punch/red glow that really makes a statement. These are hot!
These lamps are little and cute. They give off a really red to rosy-pink glow when illuminated. The one thing I didn't realize was that the pendant cord was just a round wire, therefore it is pliable. It was packaged wrapped in a circlular fashion, so when we hung it, it was slightly wavy for a few days. After about a week, the weight of the lamp straightened it out so that it hung more neatly. They don't give off a tremendous amount of light, so if you're looking for something soft, this is the light for you. I used one in my entrance foyer and one in my kitchen as a pendant light over an island. Would be better grouped in two or three if you need a fair amount of light.

These lights are gorgeous on the webpage and even more so installed. The color was VERY close to the picture and the accent nickel was great. I had them installed by an electrician, so I can't speak to installation, although for me, it was easy! :-) I would definitely recommend these lights. I've had lots of compliments and even a girlfriend who is purchasing them also.

Bought three of these to hang over my kitchen sink. Although they are not installed yet, I can tell that they will be exactly what I wanted. The red color is deep and very pretty. The size of the glass with holder is 8" and the cord length is adjustable.

This is the first time I ever ordered from overstock .com. I was very pleased and I would definitely recommend this fine product. We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen and i can't wait to put these lights over my bar. I can't stop looking at thse beautiful lights. i will try posting pictures once remodeling is complete.

Nice pendant. The outer red is so dark that light is barely able to escape so when it's on, it casts a pink/red hue. Might be cool in a frat house, but in my kitchen it looks a bit out of place. I do appreciate the bit of color it adds when the light is off though.

They work well for the application and I was able to add drop rods to the fixture with a little drilling of the canopy, and the fixture has a threaded female end all ready. So whether you want the drop cord or rod this fixture works. Customer service was great also, had a damaged and defective globe and they sent new ones right away. excellent buy for the price.
Ordered 4 for my future bar and one was a bit darker than the others. I am an electrician with 25+ years in the trades from residential to industrial work so I can give you a professional opinion. If you want quality you have to pay for it and these are not the best by far. Light fixtures have sky rocketed in price over the last decade and these are a great bang for the buck. I just installed a $35,000 dollar lighting system in a 1500 square foot office space and I have to say the lights were still not that great but you can turn them on and off or dim them with a smart phone. Also the were all LED so they will pay for themselves in a hundrend years with energy savings. Joke. As for these fixtures they are glass not plastic like I was expecting from reviews I read on here so in my opinion you can't beat the price. Buy one or two extras to mix and match colors and you will be set. Most pendants are about $100 a piece these days so at this price your getting 3 or 4 for the price of one. Another reason I bought them is they take old school incandescent bulbs which are very easily converted to LED.
Well you certainly get what you pay for...this was cheap and the product looked just that CHEAP! I ordered 3 of these to go over my new kitchen counter island. I thought red would be a cool pop of color along with my dark wood cabinets, predominantly creamy colored granite with dark flecks counter top and brushed nickel appliances but my oh my... this was not the pop I was looking for. Funny thing none of the three pendants I received matched each other in color...one was more merlot, another more cranberry and the other a deep burgundy. These are NOT glass more like a hard plastic. 2 of the 3 pendants seemed to be covered in some sought of gummy film that caused it to look quite dull. I tried to wipe them with a damp cloth but this didn't help. I must say that the shape of the pendant is cute but the quality of the "glass" and the plastic wire used - CHEAP. The seam in the "glass" and the mismatched paint really bothered me. These are definitely on their way back. One star overall for cute design and small size.
