Four Light Down Lighting Island / Billiard Fixture from the Comet Collection
Looks gorgeous but very flimsy
I wasn't really happy with this fixture. Despite an easy installation, the fixture hung about 6" lower than what the ideal height would be over a billiard table. I couldn't buy an alternatively-sized rod, and ended up having to hire a machinist to shrink the rods down to my appropriate height (which he masterfully did, but admitted that it was difficult).
Even after the height issue was fixed, I wasn't super impressed with the design on the light housing. The glass shades are only loosely held in, and the clear glass diffractor over the bulbs are held in with an ultra-thin piece of wire held in a tension loop.
Don't get me wrong - the fixture looks gorgeous, but I'm paranoid that if I so much as sneeze at it, that the tension loop is going to spring out and glass is going to start falling.

Took a lot of looking to find a modern light fixture to hang on our slanted ceiling. Had to order & pay for adapters, but was worth it.
