I just had 3 of these installed over our kitchen island. They look very nice. When turned on, they cast a very warm "honey" color throughout the room. They do provide functional lighting directly beneath them. I think they will be fine and the price was great. Our contractor said they were very easy to install. He indicated that the more expensive the pendant, the more difficult to install. I do wish they did not have the black cord but it is not that bad.
This is a replacement for an identical one that we damaged. It is exactly the same and works well. We do like them but replacing the socket (which I damaged) was as expensive as replacing the whole thing. Shipment was excellent.
We are very pleased with our Milano mini pendant lights. They give off a golden glow when lit, which is just the effect we were looking for over our earth-tone granite counter. They were easy to order, arrived in an adequate time frame, were easy to install, and overall were a great value. We would recommend this company and these lights to anyone.
We ordered three of these lights to be placed above our kitchen counter. What we like about them, is that each light is slightly different, with variations in the pattern. The quality of light they give off is very warm and when using incandescent bulbs, the range extends from very low to bright.
What we didn't know when we ordered them, is that they are made in China. I was under the impression that they might have been made in Italy, given the price, but they are China-made all the way.
Where this product lacks, is in the non-glass elements. The mounting hardware is lightweight and feels like you could break it when installing. It's a good thing you don't need to touch it after installation. Just be careful.
What was quite disappointing, was the quality and appearance of the cords. They are black plastic and look like common wire that you might find on a roll at Lowes. Because the wire is packed into a small box, after installation, there are a lot of kinks and bends, which makes the lights look cheep. Over time, this will likely reduce, but at first, it's hard to believe that they cost as much as they do. Other cheeper light come with straight mounting wires and some even with brushed steel. These lights could do with a hardware upgrade.
That being said, we are happy with the look and overall appearance. The wires have straightened out and don't look too bad. If you're OK with the lower quality hardware, you will probably love these lights.

A little bit darker in color than I expected when the lights are off (it's dark brown). Wish I could have seen that prior to ordering. Picture is exact when lights are on, beautiful color. Picture should show both, with light on & off. Not crazy about the black cord, wish it was satin nickel, now I have to go find two. Other than that great value & happy w/product.
Pendants have a beauftiful amber glow when used with a dimmer adding a unique ambiant lighting in lower settings. Lights were EZ to install and hang. Made of sturdy glass and well-packaged.
We placed 2 over a granite work counter in the kitchen, with a matching pendant over the sink, all on dimmers. Electrician could not believe ease of install and the value of the light for the price. Everyone who has seen them thinks they are beautiful and very unique.
We could no be more pleased with the lights, nor the service! Web site was loaded with options, and ability to see ZOOM views was a real plus!
