Malaga 2-Bulb Flush Mount Indoor Ceiling Fixture - Glass Shade Included
great flush mount lights
We redecorated our 2 story entry hall in a Mediterrean style and needed flush mount lights for the upper landing ceiling. These are very close to the ceiling - which I needed for some cabinet doors nearby that have to open under one of the lights (I only had about a 5 inch clearance). These work perfectly in that regard and they also match the decor of wrought iron stairs and plastered walls very well. Only complaint - the pretty glass shades are a little too translucent and I can see the light bulbs inside. Otherwise, they are perfect - very classy and nice. I can see these lights fitting into a modern decor just as easily as they are a little art deco looking.

Excellent vendor and product...
Chose the Maxim MX2680 with the Polished Brass / Marble Glass out of a large available selection that was on sale. No regrets. Got a good value, and a good product, very quickly. If you need a flush mount with a low profile modern look, consider these. Holding two 60 watt bulbs each, having a fixture at each end of the hallway provides plenty of light.

Looks good, great value
This fixture is excellent when installed. The base is white plastic, which surprised me, and before installation looks a bit cheesy. However, it is not noticeable when installed as the fixture is flush mount, and it has held up well. What is noticeable is the attractive glass shade. The shade is easy to get on and off to clean and change bulbs as two of the fasteners are fixed, and one fastener pulls sideways while remaining fastened to the base. The glass shade is finished with a textured appearance. I bought several in both the 2 light and 3 light sizes in the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish and Wilshire shade. (I also bought a 3 light fixture with a marble glass shade.) I used florescent bulbs in all fixtures and with the Wilshire shade, the fixture still has a nice warm glow. The lighter, marble glass shade is brighter, which is perfect for our use in an office. One glass shade had a slight flaw in the finish, but was quickly replaced with merely an e-mail. Overall this is a great fixture at a great price. Service also was excellent.

LOVE THIS FIXTURE
We were building a home & needed ceiling lights through the house, bedrooms, hallways, playroom, etc. We ordered both this size & the 3 light fixture for various rooms. They were just installed & look fantastic. Simple but not boring & blend in nicely with any decor.
If your room is on the larger size than I would go with the larger size.
I can't comment on the installation as our electrician put all of them up.

Beware of inaccurate product photos.
The illustration of glass for Malibu 2- and 3-light fixture (2680MRWT and 2681MRWT) is is not accurate. What you see is not what you get. The glass described as marble appears — even in close-up— to be be simply clear frosted glass. It is in fact grained to look like marble. I returned the fixtures for this reason and had to pay return postage even though I said this does not seem fair.

Great for the money
I mounted the 2 light version in a small (10 X 10)bedroom and the 3 light one in a somewhat larger (12 X 14) bedroom. It is a an unobtrusive (blends well with ceiling) very flush fixture and the right amount of light for the space. Glass cover is good looking when light is off and on. They were easy to install. I wanted an inexpensive, flush, unobtrusive fixture and this is perfect.

I was very happy with the quality of my lights. I put 2 of the Wilshire (colored glass) ones in a hallway and they look very nice. The price was very reasonable. There was a small defect in one of the glass globes, but customer service was excellent, and it was very quickly replaced. I would not hesitate to purchase another lighting product from this website.

They are perfect for smaller areas
We bought 4 of this light for our hallways and the stair case. We picked the white/marble glass finish. They blend in well with our ceiling which is in Sherwin Williams dover white. This product is simple, elegant and inexpensive. We got a lot of compliments from our guests and friends.

Nice bathroom light
This fixture works well in our new guest bathroom. It's flat enough to look fine on the slightly angled ceiling. The only caveat I'd offer is that it has a distinct swirly design in the glass that's not obvious in the catalog. At first I didn't like it but have decided it's okay.

Clean, simple style
Inexpensive, yet attractive. Needed to replace all the builder's grade ceiling fixtures in hallways throughout the house. Style blends easily with both upstairs and downstairs decor. Husband installed them - no extra trips to the hardware store and minimal grumbling.
