Maybe I just didn't read closely enough, but this light fixture was not what I expected. It looks like it belongs in a nightclub. The inside of the "shades" is actually a shiny paper/fabric. Very disappointing.

We bought these about 10 months ago for our master bathroom in our new construction home. We didn't install them so can't really comment on that but our builders never mentioned any difficulties. Looks wonderful in our modern bathroom and we have had endless compliments. So many people that come to our house say that the lighting is their favorite part- and almost all the light fixtures were ordered from Overstock! Very beautiful and a great price for what you get.

This is a beautiful fixture. When you first walk into the bathroom and turn on the light, it just grabs your attention. It's elegant and fun at the same time. Am thinking of getting another one for a different bathroom. I had it installed with the shades down and absolutely LOVE it. As usual, overstock.com provided exactly what I was looking for.

We purchased this sconce for a small bathroom. We liked it so much, that we bought a second one for another power room. The second light has a poor contact on the third light. For the first few days, it just flickered, then it went out and has not worked since. We will return the fixture. The first one we purchased has been perfect. We get a lot of compliments on it's style. It looks GREAT on a dimmer switch, you will get a lot of the shimmering from the shade material.
We haven't installed it yet, but I do like the look of this light. It's larger than I expected. I took the instructions to the local hardware store to buy bulbs and 2 different people (plus me) were perplexed by which bulb would fit. The directions said it needed a certain kind of bulb that was not obviously available in all that *** had to offer. I was told these bulbs "should" work, but I'm waiting to see what happens when it's installed. I assumed it would take regular size bulbs, but it uses candelabra bulbs. I'm a little worried about the brightness based on the bulbs, but can't say it's a problem since we don't have it installed. There are sparkles on the covers, but I like it. I would say it's not a manly looking fixture, but I'm hoping it will bring some light and sparkle to a small bathroom. There was a small scratch on the base of the fixture, which is disappointing. However, it's nothing that would make me want to go through the steps to return it. It's much less expensive than other lights I've seen, so that is a plus.
This fixture is much prettier in person AND when the lights are on. The mesh sort of sparkles with the light. It definitely looks upscale. The image shows the light facing up, which is how I installed it, but I believe it would also look good facing downward. I shopped around quite a bit for fixtures. I did not see this one in the stores, as a lot of the other ones are. Take notice that you might need additional/different parts for installation depending upon what type of bracket you have in your wall. The supplied hardware did not fit our existing bracket.
Love the look, absolutely beautiful, but given how fast the bulbs burn out with it installed pointing down, it probably should be installed only pointing up. Unfortunately, that would not be enough light for my needs. I'm trying a different type of bulb now to see if it will last longer--if no improvement, will probably have to replace it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good, but the type of bulb used does affect the appearance when the light is on.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. When installed pointing down, the bulbs burn out very quickly. Husband said not thrilled with construction when he installed it.

the height measurement read 9". How does it measure? i want to know what is the measurement of the shade, It may seem too big if it is 9" just the shade. Thankssilk618 on May 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The measurement from the bottom of the light bar to the top of the globe/shade is 9" - this does not include the wall mount portion which is about another 2" on the bottom side. Hope this helps! We love this fixture! Read my review.kgmlucas on May 3, 2013
