I absolutely love this light!! I ordered this for my cosmetic studio and it looks wonderful. It looks elegant but has a touch of contempory. I can't even begin to tell you how many people have commented about how beautiful it is. The shipment was quick and in perfect condition.
I really appreciate the nice simple grid design of this light which makes it suitable for almost any house style. The light is made of cast aluminum and is sturdy enough to last for many years. It is the perfect size for installing on each side of my double garage door. I would have given it 5 stars if the mounting base was better aligned vertically with the light. The slight 1 or 2 degree misalignment is only noticeable if installed on vertical siding and then only by a super critical eye. If you need a larger light that closely matches the Maxim 1051, check out the Minka Lavery 8718.
The light does look good. The only problem with it is that it only uses one bulb. The center rod and one socket make it so half the light is black and dark and the other half is lite up. Next time I would get one with 2 bulbs.
These are the only lights I've seen that aren't "typical" Craftsman, i.e. imitation, but have a unique style to them. They are just what we were looking for to fit with our Rocky Mountain Lodge (in the San Fernando Valley) house.
Provide a great light however a bit pure white to blueish. I would have preferred a soft white. Over all they are a great product and I would buy them again. Very easy to set up, I am a novice and I had ZERO issues. The best part of these lights is the additional parts are very inexpensive. I made it hard on myself, by hard-wiring over the microwave, sink and over the sink, as well as in the corner. The great thing was that the transformers were so cheap that I did this entire project for cheaper than the only the light fixtures of other LED systems.
When I first received this chandelier I was shocked... it was so beautiful, I didn't expect it to be so lovely. It came already set up and wrapped so well. The crystals are lovely and their cut is unique and different. The only thing that I wasn't so happy about was the fact that the crystals had a layer of something that would not allow them to shine as brightly, but after passing a little bit of alcohol to them they shined beautifully. I would definitely recommend this chandelier to anyone who is looking for a homey feel and a unique piece. Since we put this chandelier up... our dining room just draws my kids to sit down and chat,everyone who visits loves it, it is definitely an eye catching piece, it gives the home such a calming and friendly aura.
I love the size and style of this product, but TAKE NOTICE. The glass is colored a caramel color and diminishes the amount of light given off. This is not noticeable in the photo. An alabaster glass would make it perfect, but there is no such glass available for this product.
This double pendant light fixture is a beautiful addition to the kitchen in our new home. It appears to be extremely well made according to the person who installed it and a great value. I would rate everything about the process as exceptional, including ordering, order updates, packaging, on-time delivery, and follow-up.
I purchased this light fixture in January 2007 and had it installed in my guest bath. The fixture was installed as pictured. I used 60W bulbs instead of 100W. About three weeks later I noticed the paint (or finish) on the glass had created brown spots on the bottom of the globe where it had run down, like it was about to drip off. This fixture was installed in new construction, as specified. The few guests I have had in the month it has been installed have used the vent fan in the bathroom. There is really no excuse for this faulty finish on the glass.
The globes are being replaced at no cost, however, I wonder whether the replacements will be any better.
I love the modern yet traditional look of this chandelier. However, the picture makes the nickel looked really shiny but it's actually like brushed nickel. The height is also taller. While the actual chandelier measurement is correct, the actual height from ceiling is 26.5 inches. This is the height with NO chain extension. It was a little taller than we expected but I kept it anyway.
Chandelier is simply elegant. It adds the wow factor to the room. The color, intricate design and rich look make this ideal for my kitchen nook. Great fit for the room, not too large, not too small. The chandelier is more beautiful in person than the picture.
Loved this fixture. Bought 3 in the oil-rubbed bronze finish and installed them on a dimmer switch over a heavy cocoa nut shell-looking framed mirror in a British Colonial inspried bathroom. These were something different and my client was very happy. Decorator bulbs are a must, as the bulbs are very exposed.
I first bought them for the front of my house (5 in total). I like them so much I bought 6 more for the back, and will be getting a few more for some light posts in our yard. In addition, Lighting Universe is easy to work with, quick to ship, priced well, and has great customer service.
It has timeless elegance. Beautiful. Won't look dated. Takes energy saving bulbs, but the chandelier's sockets are odd. They do not take regular bulbs. And the bulbs that come with it do not have regular ends on them - they do not fit into a standard socket.
Most light fixtures seem ridiculously overpriced, especially when they're so cheaply made. This one is stylish and doesn't look cheap. In the world of overpriced light fixtures, this one is reasonable.
This is a good looking lamp that gives a lot of light. After six month the lamp is still looking good - will have to wait and see if we get corrosion as we live just at the Pacific. We were actually so happy with our first lamp that we went back and got a second for our deck.
