When I ordered them they looked cheap and I had planned on changing out the lamp shades but after I put them up they look fantastic and add so much light and openness to a small bedroom. The shade has a lot of texture to it which looks expensive and distributes the light up and down to fill up the room. I understand where other people are coming from in how the sconces tip a little, but if you screw everything in well and bend the brackets of the shade a little you can't tell. They were not easy to put together but were manageable. It probably took me two + hours in total. Some tips: THE CORD! Was so hard to figure out. What you need to do is lay the end of the cord on top of the two pincers wide side down. So the lines of the cord should be parallel to the top and bottom of the plug. Then push down on the cord so the pincers dig into it (I used some pliers for this). Then slide the guard over it all to lock it in. You can try just sliding the guard but it might bend a pincer thing. When putting on the tubing on the cord make sure to take the little nob off the bottom of the sconce base or it won't screw in all the way. And put the threads on separately to make it easy slide the cord in. All the tubing has little plastic pieces on it that you should take off. The thread glue and the screws to hold the cord down are unecessary. I wouldn't and didn't bother. Maneuver the sconce to the position you want it in before you put it on. It doesn't bend well.
This is a great deal for this design! But you will get the quality you paid for......ours wasn't really level.....my husband thought he'll go nuts over it, since he was working with is laser level and what not! Eventually he fixed it and now it's fine. Also the bulb threads are an ivory color....everything around it is chrome.....this is the only thing that bothers me. it just doesn't look perfect! but that's a minor.....and I guess only I see it! Other than that.......it's a great lamp and looks so expensive! We got several compliments already....... It's our only light source in this room and it's definitely enough! Happy customer.....good buy! I would recommend!
I've had 3 of these fixtures for several months now. They are very large and modern. I have recently noticed that one of my fixtures has globes that are slightly off-white, while the other fixtures have crisp, white globes. It took me months to notice the variation, so I don't think it will be noticeable to anyone else. I hung these myself. No issues, other than some of the screw-on parts needed some patience (and a drop of liquid soap on the threading helps, too). I wish I could post a photo because they look really good, imo. I am happy with this purchase (and the price).
