I love the way this light fixture looks hanging over my sink. I was tired of the single lonely pendant that had been there since we had built our house. I wanted something different and was thinking of just a flush mount light...until, I saw this!!! It really gives my kitchen an updated look!!! You will love it! Only thing... when we took it out of the box...we questioned the quality . Only because the black wire that hangs down looks very industrial...kinda like an extension cord. There is also a lot of it!!! You will need to trim off quite a bit !!! We have 10 foot ceilings and the lights would have hit the floor with the amount of cord that it comes with. However, it is very easy to do . You will just need to make sure the lights are staggered right to make it hang pretty!. Although, we originally thought the cord looked cheap ...once it was installed it looked great! I would have liked the price to be a little lower. But overall I am extremely happy with this light fixture.
Absolutely amazing! *** This light looks so unbelievably beautiful now that I have it up in my dining room. It took me a while to get started on hanging this fixture, but once I got it up, I am utterly speechless at how beautiful it is. Yes, it can be a little more challenging than expected. Especially with getting the wire lengths just right. But once I figured out the grove of things, it went quickly. Here are a few hints that might help you through the task of instillation. Hint 1 – There are tiny little tightening slots on the side of the knobs where the wire enters the plate housing. Use a small slotted screw driver to loosen these holders to make moving the wires in and out of the fixture easier. Hint 2 – go ahead and disassemble the entire fixture. Take the wires completely off of the housing plate and do a dry run mounting of the ceiling plate to the nipple coming out of the ceiling. This will ensure you have enough of the nipple hanging down to screw on the finial. Hint 3 – Lay the fixture on the ground to make the wire length adjustments. Then do a dry run by holding the fixture up on the ceiling prior to making any excess wire cuts. This will ensure the fixture hangs the way you want it in your space. Final hint – This is a 2 man job. You will need someone to hold the fixture while you connect all of the power wires; and trust me, there are a lot of them. – But all in all, it is WELL, WELL, WELL, worth it. I find myself walking into the room just to stare at the light. It’s that beautiful.
We bought this for our foyer. It is one of the few we could find that hangs down low enough for our vaulted ceiling. It is so beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice! It is so unique, and the bulbs give off a beautiful warm light. It looks like we spent a fortune on it! We couldn't be happier!
You have full control of how long you want each bowl to hang, which was one of our concerns. Some of the bowls edges are cut crooked but I think it adds to the character... the rustic charm if you will. Make sure you have dark furniture or SOMETHING black in your house otherwise the black will stick out like a sore thumb on your ceiling
extra long cord gives lots of options for hanging length, seeded glass is very pretty, easy to install, using this in kitchen so regular bulbs work better than the Edison bulbs that came with, could easily be used in foyer, or small dining room. Great look for the price
This light is perfect above our dining room table. We have a vaulted ceiling and had no problems installing it. One thing that isn't evident from the pictures is that the glass has little bubbles all over in it. I ended up liking that, but I didn't expect it.
The lamp is very cool and interesting with it's Edison bulbs (which did come with it), Be aware that unless you have a cathedral ceiling, you will have to shorten the hanging cords. But there is room in the canopy to coil them, so no cutting is required. Installation went fine, the only thing is that the sockets for the bulbs don't hang exactly perpendicular to the fixtures, so the bulbs end up looking slightly askew, We noticed this a lot when we were installing it, but now, in daily use, it doesn't stand out. Have received compliments on it from our guests. They like the retro look and warm light of the bulbs, the the glass shades look hand-blown with lots of little bubbles in the glass. We are enjoying our new fixture.
This light looks great in my dining room and adds a slight mid century, modern touch. The lengths of each stand are very long so you will need to cut them to the size you want them to be and measure them on the floor first. That is the only tricky part of the install, as is fit the light box perfectly where I had a small chandelier before. Please be careful in installing though as the glass globes are very fragile and one broke during install. Overstock was nice enough to replace for me, but please beware this can happen. The Edison bulbs look great in the fixture also!
I love this light. It is very stylish, but I did have to make one adjustment: as cool looking as the vintage bulbs may be, they hurt our eyes when we looked directly at them. I switched the bulbs out with Satco S3862 120-Volt 60-Watt G25 Medium Base Light Bulb, Silver Crown and the problem was solved. This bulb reflects light back up to the ceiling, and the silver paint covers up the filament from your eyes.
