Forte Lighting 2179-01 Reviews

Fits the need wellThis fixture has a nice look and fits well in our newly remodeled kitchen, in the breakfast area. I ordered three of them. It is attractively priced, although build quality is only average. In particular, I had some difficulty making the two conical parts (metal and glass) come together on the same axis, as they naturally wanted to stay at a somewhat crooked angle. After that was resolved, with some tries and patience, the general appearance of the 3 lights is quite pleasant. I installed LED bulbs (9w each, equivalent to 40W incandescent) and had to install a dimmer, as the lights (spaced at 24") were quite bright over the table.

Versatile, excellent value.These contemporary pendants met my needs for over-the-counter lighting. I hung three of these over a ten-foot run of countertop which serves as an eating bar. The 18" rod provided the perfect mounting height over the counter (from an 8' ceiling). Bar stool seating at counter height works nicely without the pendants getting in the way of headroom.
In spite of the published specs stating the bulb size is A15, I am using 9w LEDs sized E26/A19 (standard) with no problem. They provide a 60w equivalent, and are dim-able.
Easy installation as well. The only drawback might be availability. But if you can find these, they are a very good bargain.
