24" Modern 4 Light Bathroom Fixture
I would not recommend this light to anyone. To begin with, it is too small to go over a bathroom mirror. The worst part is the way it's made. The globes are so small that a man's hand can't begin to reach inside to screw in the bulb or the ring that is required to hold globe in place. I am a very petite female & my hand would not fit. It was a nightmare trying to get the ring in. One of the globes was stripped & we actually had to glue it on. If we ever decide to change, we will have to break the globe. Worst product I have ever ordered from any company.

Aesthetically nice but consider....
The light can be installed with lights in the up or dwn position, however I wld sugg that u install the covers before mounting otherwise unless u hv small hands, it it difficult to install the nut that holds it in place. Also as a prev purchaser stated, my light covers also came damaged. Two of the 8 were shattered & the co is sending me replacemnts. That issue can easily be resolved if they wld add a floor of bubble wrap in the bottom of the box. I like the light but expect an extended completion date because they light covers will likey come shattered.

Beautiful Fixture and solid - Great Price!
Recently renovated my bathroom and purchased this fixture (chrome finish) installed pointing down. Looks wonderful in my "modern style" bathroom. I used 60 W compact flourescent bulbs and the lighting is more than sufficient . . .a huge improvement over the previous fixture I had in the bathroom. In fact, with 100W bulbs, the lighting would be too much. With the compact bulbs, you cannot see them protruding from the bottom of the shade . . . buy the CFL's and you'll be happy! I had read reviews of shades being damaged on shipment and how difficult it was to install the shades. Mine came with NO damage to the shades and before the fixture was installed, I installed the shades which made things much easier . . . and I do not have "small" hands. I did not install myself, but my general contractor did and he did not have any issues . . . it was installed in less than 10 minutes. The curved arm adds an unusual and beautiful look to the fixture. It's also is very solid and appears to be well made. I'm very happy with this fixture, and there was nothing in the home stores that could compare to this fixture at this price point and quality. Faucet Direct's prices and service are superb, and I received this fixture pretty quickly after my order. I highly recommend!

Great Bathroom Fixture
As some have said, the glass globe is not very tall. I mounted mine in the bulb up orientation. If by some chance your mounting height has you looking "down" on the fixture I would not recommend it. I used compact fluorescent bulbs in it, and 4 lamps for average bathroom is plenty fine! My wife did not want those tulip shaped globes that most other fixtures have. Nice modern look and the brushed stainless look is pretty cool.

It looks like a more expensive piece. Overall I'm happy with the Forte Lighting 5105-04, I receive many compliments. I just have a couple issues - the glass cover is too short and I had to purchase new shorter bulbs. I purchased the shortest ecofriendly bulbs in home depot and still shows above the glass. Shipping packaging is very poor, glass arrived shattered had to order new ones.

The Right Amount of Light
We just finished an almost complete remodel of our bathroom. We like to see things in person before purchasing them, but were just unable to find affordable lights in any of our local stores. As a result, we were hesitant about purchasing online, but are now so glad we did. We bought two of these lights, one over each sink, and the cast just the right amount of light.

We got these in chrome for our kids bathrooms. They are plenty bright. They actually can go up to (4) 100 W lights, but we just used 60W and that's plenty bright. We installed ours with the lights facing down and it looks great. It was an excellent value for the price. We have no complaints and we are happy we got them. (Note, we did not install these ourselves.)

Sleek clean looking fixture....Beautiful
I am very happy with the look and quality of this fixture. Fits perfectly in my bathroom space, and really adds a simple clean elegance while coordinating with the other fixtures including the faucet, cabinet handles, and towel bars. Excellent price, and just what I was looking for. Easily Installed and bulbs switch easy too! Highly recommend...love it!

We ordered this in the chrome finish. It is actually of finer quality than shows on this website. The metal arcs toward the wall (nice design). Four bulbs gives a good amount of light to a bath room. The light fixture arrived in perfect quality. They must have fixed the packaging problem I read about. Very high end looking.

Antique Bronze is REALLY "Flat Brown"
I purchased this fixture in the antique bronze finish. When I opened the box, I was suprised to find that the finish really has the appearance of flat dark brown. To me, there is a distinct difference between antique bronze and brown and the finish should be advertised as such.
