Purchased 10 of these in June.The overall quality is only average. The width of the back is barely wide enough to cover a standard US wall junction/mounting box...in fact it isn't wide enough ! The glass on each of the 10 I have received, which I think is a fair sample, differs in size, form and symmetry in each one. When you mount the glass into the bracket, it appears that the covering of the bracket is squeezed out and forms a rather unsightly shape, again this has happened on each lamp fitting. This was supposed to be from a designer...they do look stylish but I have had to carefully match each one in each area of the room to achieve a sort of balance in shape and style...despite them all being the same !!!
I thought this light fixture was pretty difficult to install because of the size of all the very small screws. I think the order of assembly in the directions would have made it even harder to install, as it says to assemble the entire fixture and then connect it to the electrical supply in the ceiling. Not really enough space to do that very easily. By connecting it and then adding the glass, it was very hard to get the arms in the exact right places to connect them to the glass with tiny screw on caps. Definitely requires two people, but even then, it's difficult to work with and heavy to hold in position while trying to complete installation. I will likely buy another because I like the look and want the two fixtures to match, but be aware of the installation process.
We've been searching for several months for the "perfect" mini chandelier for our masterbath area...found what appeared to be the perfect light for us on the internet...so we "took a chance"...keeping our fingers crossed that the product would look great (you can't always be certain from a photo posted on the net)...wondering if the transaction would be processed and the product delivered in a reasonable time and in one piece...(well, okay, I wasn't expecting the crystals to be in place, but you know what I mean)...So this is what went down: delivered on time, no problems with the transaction in regards to payment, wonderful packaging so the product was in one piece and the crystals protected from breakage, easy to hang ourselves (well, for my boyfriend, I'm a bit electrically "challenged") and it was beautiful! Loved the size, porportions and the finish...we want to order another for our kitchen! Cindy
If you order this fixture, be prepared to have at least three people on ladders to install it. I have installed many light fixtures during our home renovation, and this one has to be the most difficult ever. Assembly requires attaching several pieces with tiny little washers and tabs in places that are nearly inaccessible with fingers or tools. Then, try balancing the huge glass dish inside the metal ring while you attach more little tiny washers and tabs to connect the ring and glass dish to the arms of the piece affixed to the ceiling. To make things even more difficult, if not impossible, the glass did not seat properly in the ring and the first set of little screws work loose while you struggle with the glass dish...I boxed it up and had it sent back to Murray Feiss. A very nice look in the photo, but very poor design!
I bought 2 of these lights. The glass was badly flawed on both of them. Holes in the etching and lots of scratches. One replacement light was sent after I complained to customer service. The replacement was worse than the originals. There was a 5 inch long depression in the bowl of the glass. Very disappointing because it is a beautiful design but poorly executed. Don't buy it.
The Boulevard flush mount light adds simple geometric sight lines to room. A touch of Meiji dynasty feel to it. Easy to install if you've installed ceiling lights before. Instructions that shipped with light were written in stilted English, poor grammar. You get the feeling an ape with a crayon wrote the installation instructions.
I love this mirror. Unfortunately when I remodeled, my husband tightened the screws because the mirror appeared to be loose, and it cracked. Have to replace the glass now. The mirror is very classy in the oil bronze.
I purchased 2 of these mini chandeliers and they are stunning in my living room. They are the perfect size for 9 foot ceilings which are not suitable for larger chandeliers. I spent several weeks looking in my home town of Vancouver, Canada, but finally ended up ordering these on-line.
My home sits back on a 1.5 acre lot, these lights' details stand out from the street and are very bright at night. But, again, just like with the other model I bought... they're difficult to place the bulbs into. Instead of having a 'trap' glass on the back, you have to take out the whole (heavy) glass casing out in order to replace the bulbs. I cannot imagine what'd happen if I ever dropped the casing.
I loved the mirror. The shape, quality and style are perfect. Unfortunately, it came with two scratches through the silver backing and had to be exchanged. The people at Lighting Universe were very helpful in resolving the problem and I liked the mirror enough to reoder the same one.
I bought the Maison de Ville Duomont F1880/3BRB chandelier for my bedroom. At first, I thought the chandelier would be too small but once the crystal adornments were added, it turned out to be the perfect size. I used Reveal bulbs for the chandelier and I get great lighting - also use a dimmer switch. I am very pleased ! TTC
Received these pretty outdoor (garage) lamps and the matching patio ceiling light very quickly. Pleased with the style, beauty and quality. Remind me of tiny pagodas - clean lines with stacked roofs. Glad to be able to simply reach inside from below in order to change a bulb,(unlike the fixtures I was replacing). Some assembly needed, but easy and kinda fun. Note: these fixtures lie completely flat against the wall, so I had to avoid placing them where there was an architectural ridge on the garage wall. Well satisfied with the product and the look achieved.
Very pleased with this. Shipping was FAST. The lamp is high quality, sturdy construction. It throws off such a nice amount of light. I hung it in a narrow entryway, and it really dressed up the hallway. I am so pleased with this. The antique bronze finish gave this chandelier a more modern, less stuffy look, which matches my decor perfectly!
Yes, excellent product and hi quality. Not something one can buy and Lowes or Home Depot. I wanted a different look for the front of my home and I got it. It is not just this product, there are so many to choose from. Variety is great and no complaints. I will buy again and again. Just a little too much money for it, however, well worth it in the end. In my opinion, paying more than $200.00 for a outside light fixture is too much. It better be worth it!
We looked at this same fixture in a local store. I remembered seeing it online, so I checked there. The online price was $46 cheaper, plus no tax or shipping. It arrived very quickly and in excellent condition. We are waiting for other bathroom fixtures to arrive before we install the light, but I'm sure it will look great in our 150 year-old Cape Cod-style house. Too many bathroom lights look Victorian these days, so we were happy to find one that is more Colonial/rustic in style yet provides good light. I will return to Lighting Universe again (and first) when I next need another lighting fixture.
The sconces were more beautiful than I expected. Easy to install and put together. Excellent quality. And amazingly fast delivery. If I had room for more I'd buy them. I would definetly recomment the product!!!!!
I waited to send my review until the sconces went throught one winter in the Northeast. I purchased four lights. After only one winter the finish is peeling off two of them. Have already sent them out for repair. For what I paid, I'm disappointed they didn't hold up to the weather.
The light shade had a defect in it. I called the company and they said they would send out another shade. We'll see... I didn't care for the wiring set up and the extension. A little harder to work with than the other light we purchased. My wife likes the look of it especially when we get the new shade.
Item looked as pitured- very pretty and works really well in the space. I was a little overwhelmed when I realized how many crystals I had to install myself but once they were sorted it was no big deal.
I've never purchased wall sconces before. My thought was to either have them used with regular white bulbs or perhaps yellow bulbs so that they could look more like flames coming out. I called customer service hoping they would be open top for easy access to changing bulbs, they didn't know, they called the manufacturer, and they said they were closed. I ordered them anyway. When I received them they were open top which I was happy about. They've been professionally mounted on either side of a 63" flat screen TV and look wonderful, like an upscale movie theatre. I have a dimmer on the switch and they go from barely lit to bright. I haven't tried the yellow bulbs yet but I'm sure they'll look great also. Another thought, the metal feels like really good quality and I'm pleased.
The Sonoma Valley collection is fabulous - totally matches my country look - also purchased the drop ceiling light for my entry way that matches cnandelier. Packaging was great - the leaves are quite delicate and bend easily so you have to be careful and not over-do adjusting them. Also installed a new outside light in my entrance from the Murray Feiss collection. Very pleased with all items
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my wall sconces! They arrived quickly in perfect condition and the prisms are beautiful! Could not be happier with my purchase...will buy from you again! Thanks so much...great finishing touch for my country french master bath!
My only complaint is you need to have a square, not round junction box for this light (the kind that would go under a light switch). This information should be posted with the specs, as we may not have ordered it as we needed to patch out drywall for the installations. Other than that, I love it!
The engineers got it wrong on this fixture. It was difficult to mount, even with two people.
The support arms are to be attached to the mounting base before attaching to the ceiling, which is ok until you have to mount the globe and ring.
You can attach two arms to the ring with the tiny nuts and washers easily if your hands are small as a toddler. Once you have the two arms attached, you can slide the globe into the ring and then attach the other arms, but remember, you now have to hold the globe in the air while you do it.
Frustrating assemly, but I have to admit it looks good when complete. Great light output.
Definitely a 6-beer job.
