We are thrilled with the look of the new pendant light fixture. It was well fabricated,easy to install,provides excellent light ( especially with the dimmer switch) and is the perfect enhansment for the space.
These wall sconces went on sides of rustic metal mirrors over cherry vanity with white marble top. Full bathroom remodel very "earthy spa" feeling to our new room. These lights are a great value and are very well made. After checking for more details on Hubbardton Forge website I knew the no-return policy here would not be an issue. Called another dealer that had these lights and they also had no-return AND were selling them for much more. I have not seen anything like these in my shopping travels for fixtures. They are BEAUTIFUL, UNUSUAL and CLASSY looking. Thank you.
Having spent a premium to acquire two US made light fixtures imagine my chagrin when I unpacked the boxes to be greeted by an interior box boldly stamped MADE IN CHINA. This box contained the opal glass globe. To my eye the low quality glass markedly cheapens the look of an otherwise high quality fixture. I know that there is a disclaimer in the fine print somewhere that some minor potion of the components may not be US made but I did not imagine the imported portion would comprise the majority of the superficial appearance. It's a shame that Hubbardton Forge chose to finish their lovely work with low quality glass thereby casting their creation in a cheap light.
Order fulfillment was very fast. The Kakomi semi-flush mount light has an excellent balance and good sight lines to it. My only problem was that the protective shield over the halogen bulb did not fit well. It popped out the first time and needed 3 attempts to screw in correctly. Instructions were well written and clear.

The square glass diffuser and suspension is very unique--just what I was looking for. It makes a subtle, classy statement in the room. Stone glass gives a warm glow to the bright light. We are pleased with the quality workmanship of the fixture and complete installation guide.

This has turned out to be the perfect light for our small-ish kitchen. We weren't sure if it would be bright enough with only three little bulbs, but we even have it on a dimmer and rarely have it turned up all the way. We have the larger 9-light version in the dining room. We have an old house, with a shaker/farmhouse inspired style, and it's a good combination of rustic/handmade and simple, clean lines.
The description is not explicit of the item. The shade are flimsy and color is not accurate as shown on internet. Brown shade is greyish brown-very light NOT the brown in the picture. Lamp took a long time to get shipped.
This chandelier is just beautiful. Perfect in size for our dining room. Another plus is that it was Made in America at a very good price which is important to me. It looks elegant and doesn't overpower the room. Just casts a warm glow throughout the room. I couldn't believe how quickly it arrived and will certainly purchase from Hubbardton Forge and Lighting Universe again. Thank you!!!!

Beautifully made; quality all the way. simple lines, ultra classsy. It should be for what it costs, but I am very happy with it. Note: it is quite big/tall, so note the height of your ceilings and the space it will occupy.
Hubbardton has nailed down modernism-retro in a simple, high quality product. The quality of the lamp is exceptional. The design works with almost any interior scheme. Even the lighting is great, giving an even coverage throughout a medium sized room. I have the old style, with (4) 40 watt candlabra bulbs. This style is an improvement of a lamp that I would never have guessed could be improved.
Not quite, but I love it that much. I loved it in the picture but once I opened the box I was even happier. The quality is exceptional. The glass globes are so beautiful especially when they are lit, lots of little detail in the glass.
I was nervous about color as website really does not show color well, but felt safe to order a bronze chandelier with the stone glass and it is perfect! We have a dimmer and I would reccommend a dimmer to enjoy the softness as well as the bright lighting! The workmanship is great and the electrician who assisted in the installation was impressed! Overall, great and happy to see craftsmanship from USA!!
The sconces are outstanding. The stone glass I chose is beautiful but the colors are different for the two pieces. In the configuration I had them installed, it is quite noticeable. One of the globes is rather tan, the other rather white. They are installed on both sides of one door. Either one alone is fine, but I wish they had been chosen to be shown together. That is my only disappointment.
Great light but over priced. Assembly instructions are difficult to follow. Also there should be a better picture of the mounting plate on the website. You are supposed to mount to some type of structure and not use the electrical box. I thought, because of the weight, the mounting plate would be at least 16" wide to grab a roof truss. This light could be very hard to mount, but with a little better info on the website it would have made it much easier to preplan for the installation.
The back surface of the light is constructed from thin copper sheet. The edges are folded back and the corners are seamed in order to suggest visual thickness, but the corner seams are clearly visible and the outcome is sloppy. While the example picture shows what appears to be a highly textured surface on a thick copper sheet, the lights we received contained mostly areas of plain, un-etched copper surface and the copper had the wavy appearance of a cheap thin sheet construction. The advertised picture is not representative; the actual lights were not nearly as visually interesting as the picture shown.
It is exactly as shown. Yet appears smaller than I expected. It reminds of an old light fixture with a shade over it. Buy the bigger, two shad model or get the darker color shade. Hubbardton Forge is a fantastic manufacturer, but I feel they went mediocre with this model. Lightinguniverse is a great, easy-to-use website. The prices were cheaper than anywhere else and the fixture arrived quickly.
This was a brand new product, and none of the local vendors had a sample of either the fixture or the amber swirl glass. I bought it sight-unseen based on a picture in the catalog. The amber swirl glass is absolutely gorgeous and I could not be happier with the fixture. It gets rave reviews from everyone who sees it. I have other Hubbardton Forge products and knew that the quality of the workmanship would be very high.
We ordered the wall sconce listed after extensive online research of different companies, styles, construction and prices. We can't believe we waited so long before choosing this lamp. It is an attractive lamp with excellent construction and versatility. We use the dimming feature frequently. Perfectly suits our needs!
