Fireside 3 Light Semi-Flush Ceiling Fixture
I purchased this light to replace an outdated kitchen light that just wasn't bright enough. I was looking for one that was not flat against the ceiling, but it couldn't hang down very far b/c my ceiling is not overly high. I wanted one with three (instead of only 2) bulbs that could be rather high wattage. This light's 3 bulbs can be up to 100 watts; I'm only using 75 watt bulbs and it's great!!! No more working in my own shadow at the sink and unlighted counter areas! It installed easily, but 2 people were helpful with one to hold the light while the wires were connected by the other. Price was competitive, and the light is not "cheap" in it's construction or appearance. It is simple but classy looking- and all my visitors like it as much as I do. ")

Just What I Needed
I chose the right ceiling light -- takes three 100 watt bulbs, able to change bulb wthout taking light apart and was able to install using installion pieces already in ceiling from previous light. Lighting Direct.com has a huge, varied selection with a wide price range which makes it easier than running all around, from store to store, to found exactly what you need.

Looks great. Only bad thing are the screws were too long to use the finished ball nuts. We had to use some nuts we already had, and will have to buy new screws that are the right length.

Looks great in entryway
This was a great experience in buying. The quality and price of the product is outstanding. I have the light installed in my entryway and am receiving complements on it.

Love the Look
This light fixture had exactly the look I was wanted. It had simple lines, was the right height, and I loved the color. An electrician installed the fixture. We put in 75 watt bulbs rather than 100 watt bulbs. That same day, the bulbs popped..the fixture shorted out. The electrician returned, did some rewiring in the fixture, and put 60 watt bulbs in fixture. The light is quite bright; have had no problems since.

shipped fast and in perfect condition. Glass is a little yellower than in the picture - but otherwise looks great.

needs quality control
While I like the fixtures quite well, the ones I received had clearly been opened and sent back by a previous customer. In one case the mounting plate was missing, but my electrician created a substitute. Another fixture was bent, but gently bending it back worked out. A couple others were not aligned well and took some work to make the mount look okay. The rest showed inconsequential twisting on the wires, just enough to show that someone else had rejected them. This sort of fixture does not look good unless the shade is level and the quality control on the metal component holding the shade was inadequate. I observed the same problem in different fixtures in our local upscale lighting store, but it is easier to inspect them on the spot
before leaving the store. These fixtures were what I wanted and were available for about the same price at the local less upscale lighting store, but needed to be ordered and would have come much more slowly than from LightingDirect.com.
Initially I ordered some other fixtures that turned out to be unavailable. I got a call from LightingDirect.com about it in a timely manner and resolved the problem smoothly, so I can say that LightingDirect.com has good customer service.

Nice clean lines. Wish the shade was a little less amber colored.
