I like the profile,color, price I was disappointed that there is a pull chain from the center which is unnecessary and detracts from the sleekness. This was not indicated in the picture or description. I am considering shortening the chain so that the knob looks like it is used to secure the cover instead of forturning on and off the light
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Love the look and color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not standard American installation but easily installed;
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Did not indicate that indicate that in addition to turning on and off at light switch, fixture also has a pull chain (a turn off for looks)
We are remodeling our home, an old Victorian mansion. We picked these because the look seemed to fit the room style. Overall we are still happy with the look but we were very surprised about 2 things. One: these lights are designed for ceiling fans. And Two: the lights require an Intermediate light bulb base (not standard or candelabra). Neither of these issues were mentioned on the descriptions or reviews. We decided to keep the lights because of the look but because they'll be tied to a switch, we'll be cutting off the pull chains once we know they are in the "on" position. Plus we've had to buy adapters for the bulb sockets and to get creative on mounting them to the ceiling boxes. Luckily my husband's an electrical engineer who loves a challenge. That said this would have been good information to have going into the purchase.
Nowhere in the online description is it mentioned this light MUST be installed onto a ceiling fan. That small detail WAS explicit on the included documentation. The light DOES appear identical to your online pic. Unfortunately this was not only a huge disappointment because I'd finally found exactly the light fixtures for my hallway, but also an unnecessary waste of my time.
I expected the glass to be "aged cream" as described. The picture shows a beautiful creamy off-white with a light tan/pink patina. When it came in, the glass was a very dark brownish yellow that didn't even go well with the silver base (I would expect it to be paired with Oil Rubbed Bronze). Currently searching for replacement glass as I still love the base.
