This is a very nice light. However, there is a big gap between the glass and the flush mount which allows bugs to get inside the glass very easily. I only had it up for one day and there were many little flies sitting inside which is quite noticeable when looking up at the light.

This light looks great up. It is different than most others out there. It really dressed up the entry of my house. The only thing that I am not looking forward to is changing the light bulb. I will be putting flourescent bulbs in next time so they last a long time. You have to take the entire cage and glass off to get to the bulbs.
Our house has a Prairie/Craftsman style and these lights fit in perfectly! We installed them ourselves. I would say they are easy to install IF you've installed lights before...the directions were not very helpful. They provide a lot of light but aren't blinding because of the frosted glass. We love them.
It's not difficult to install the light, but after it is installed, placing the glass over the fixture and using the three screws to assemble the last part was difficult due to the spring loading of the glass cover. It makes it hard to align the screws with the holes. I dread having to change a bulb, and would recommend the newer energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs that last 7 years, so as to minimize the headache.
I was very pleased with the look of the light. We are building a new home and they haven't been installed yet, but I'm sure I will be happy with them. They were bought to match the cabinet knobs that I ordered from Knobs and Hardware, one of your divisions.
It took me forever to find the exact lighting for our newly redone bathroom. I did find a nice pair of lights and ordered them from another company for triple the cost. They debited my credit card immediately then told me they were on back order and instead of being sent the 19th of July, they would be sent the 23rd of Aug. I cancelled their order and found yours which I like better and were more than half the cost with no delivery charges. It took me almost three weeks to get my credit from the other company. I'm so glad I found you and your products.
Lights were installed today and they are absolutely beautiful! The alabaster glass is heavy, high quality and provides great "movement" to the light. The narrow profile makes these lights exceptionally useful in narrow spaces flanking a mirror. Lights can be mounted so shades are upright or pendant, providing two looks. The service at Lighting Universe was terrific - prompt delivery and excellent follow up.
After searching high and low for months for the perfect light to replace the old dusty, sticky ceiling fan in our kitchen, I finally found it-almost. The size is right, it doesn't hang too low and the look is exactly what I was going for in an older but updated home. And unlike other similar lights that have flourecent bulbs, you can use lower wattage bulbs in this light if you want to, which I recommend. I used 3 52 watt bulbs and it will nearly blind you, but I like a bright kitchen. The only thing I would change is the opaqueness of the shade. When the light is on you can see the outline of each bulb instead of one sweeping glow. But only if you look directly at the light itself while it's on, which most people are never going to do. Besides that, the light is perfect!
I canceled an order for this bathroom light fixture at my local lighting store because I would have had to wait 5-6 weeks on the light fixture. I ordered the fixture from Lighting Universe on a Friday, and I had the light by the following Thursday. It also was 10% cheaper, and free shipping was provided. An excellent value.
The only thing I found unacceptable was with the manufacturer. The assembly instructions included were not for the model fixture that I purchased. Holes had to be drilled into the back plate in order to mount it on the wall. This was a do-it-yourself project.
Wanted swag lamp for entry.. this one had chain3 ft maybe and the rest was wire ridiculious. i would not order another of these my husband is an electricion and so rigged it up to the ceiling and had to put another on off switch in due to the way it looked so tacky just hanging there. was not what i expected i will shop myself next time.. sorry but i would not recommend this to be titled swag entry it is not....sherry woodside
This spot light has some adjustability, the cone of the light can be aimed from the base and allows for good coverage. This medium size light is a good size not so "industrial" in appearance. The finish is a bronze/brown color that works well with earth tones and blends in for a less conspicuous appearance, while still providing the light needed.
Two sconces were purchased for our law office. They provided an update to our building and we are quite pleased with their appearance. These items were on backorder for quite some time. The company was very diligent to provide emails for status updates. When the product arrived, one of the glass panes was broken. We received a replacement pane in less than one week. Great customer service!

I really just wanted an outside light that I didn't have dead bugs getting trapped inside. With the opening at the bottom, this light is perfect for that and it looks good too. I am pleased with them (I bought two).
I love the polished chrome 5 light fixture. It fits perfectly above our double sink vanity. The lighting is great without being too bright. It arrived in great condition. I would definitely order again from this company. I am pleased with the price too as other fixtures were more expensive in the local stores in my area.
The fixture is great. I especially like the alabaster shades. I had bought beautiful gold bath fixtures and was horrified to find that the light fixture producers don't seem to talk to the bathroom fixture people and I could not find any gold fixtures locally. I was truly delighted to open your website and find this fixture.
The bathroom vanity light was exactly like the web site picture. It was simple to order. It was shipped in a timely manner. The packing was good, no damage to the product. The instructions were simple and clear. The light looks great in my updated bathroom.
The fixture came promptly as promised. The fixture is very good looking and sturdy. Had friends over for the 4th of July and got rave reviews. I use daylight fluorescent bulbs and the kitchen is very bright.

This light looks really nice on our new front porch. The craftsman style goes nicely with our windows and craftman stlye home. It gives off a lot of light and matches nicely with the hanging light over the door. I would recommend this light to anyone who loves the look of the craftsman style.
These lights were exactly what I wanted and look great on my newly painted house. The medium size, the soft off-white color of the glass with the black body and the square style were all perfect; they have added an up-dated and classical look that blends beautifully with the style of the house. They were installed easily and cast a strong light downwards. Couldn't be happier.
