Minka Lavery 1494 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Light NOT SILVER Purchased this light based on color and style. Upon opening the packaging, I experienced mixed reactions. The overall quality of the light is striking and stylish. However the color is a definite goldish tone. I believe a better description of the color would be to call it simply "champagne" rather than "champagne silver". I kept the lamp and am happy with my purchase, but have plans to sponge all the metal with silver paint in order to match the brushed silver hardware in my home. I hope this helps other shoppers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and Modern! I searched for weeks for the perfect pendant to go with my new upholstered dining room walls. When I saw the Minka Lavery 1494 I knew that I had finally found what I was looking for. It is fabulous! I had the electrician install it for me and I must say that it was a little challenging for him since the installation instructions do not specify that the glass pieces are slightly larger at the top than the bottom as well as curved. All the pieces must be installed with the wider portion at the top of the fixture otherwise they will not fit in the metal frame. I have received numerous compliments on this beautiful fixture!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but color is less silver than beige Purchased the Champagne Silver version to hang over our dining table. Overall the light is beautiful and has a wow factor to it! However, there are a few things to be aware of: 1. The color may not be as you expect. Based on the pictures and the description, I was expecting more of a brushed silver type finish with a champagne tint. In reality, the color is a beige, with a burnished finish. Pretty, just not what I had in expected. We made it work. When the light is on I love it since it darkens the metalwork. If I could redo, I would have just gotten the darker version. 2. Installing the glass can be really confusing. The answer is so simple we had a "duh" moment :). We kept trying to put the glass pieces in from the inside, pushing them to the outer rim. If you do that they don't fit because the they hit the bars. What you are SUPPOSED to do is just slide them in from the top. I've read other reviews where people returned them because the glass didn't fit. It does, you just have to do it right. 3. The three 100w bulbs make this light nice and bright even though it is shaded on the sides and bottom. We tried it with 60w bulbs and it was too dim. So we use the 100w and put the light on a dimmer. It is beautiful when on and dimmed. 4. This light is 20" diameter. We were replacing a multi tier chandelier that was also 20". This seems bigger when in place because it is one solid piece, so we could have gone down a bit in diameter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied The lights were beautiful & just as pictured. Placed one over the kitchen table & it provided the perfect amount of light without being harsh. Had a problem with 1 light & Lighting Direct's customer service was very friendly, efficient & issued a replacement order right away. I would not hesitate to purchase from Lighting Direct again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition Bought this light fixture for a guest bedroom. The fixture is awesome and the perfect size. Nice to have an option on extensions. My buying experience was great, very smooth from searching to receiving no problems

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light choice! "I researched a lot of lights for my dining area and kept coming back to the Minka Lavery 1494. Boy, am I glad I did! I ordered it in the lighter 'champagne' version and it is elegant and retro at the same time. The color is more of the gold tone, but very sheer and subtle. Also, like the fact it came with glass sides and botton panel vs. plastic. One of the side panels arrived broken, but Katie at customer service was excellent at getting 2 new ones sent out free of charge immediately. I was still able to hang it with the broken one placed in the light with minimal notice of where it was broken. The option of having different extension lengths to hang was a plus. This light will work in a larger room with higher ceilings as it does in mine which is a smaller dining area over a round table. I have mine set to a dimmer and it is absolutely stunning - you won't be disappointed! Lighting Showplace is great to work with and I will be returning for other products."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful This piece was such a great addition to my bedroom. It added that touch of elegance I was looking for. I had my electrician install it with a dimmer which really makes it perfect.
