Boulevard 2 Light Wrought Iron Semi-Flush Ceiling Fixture
Don't buy it!
This light is ridiculously designed. The screws are too short to get a tight grip on the arms of the light, your fingers must be very small to fit in between the arms and the bowl and then you have to get the nut on the screw in a 1/2 inch space. Where the arms attach to the mounting plate, the screws are too short there also and they never stay tight. When you finally get the light installed the arms are wobbly because the screws come loose. There are lots of other pretty fixtures that are so much easier to install - try one of those. For the price of this one, it just isn't worth it. Our kitchen fixtures is similiar, and at half the price, much easier to install, and to clean the bowl and change bulbs.

Impossible to clean--terrible design
I bought 4 of them as well as 2 of the pendants to put in my kitchen and entry way. They looked great until I wanted to clean them--IMPOSSIBLE. You have to take them down-uninstall them to wash the glass. I tried to dust them and scraped the white "paint" off the glass. I took them down and got rid of them as I could not return them! Worst lighting purchase of my 33 years of home ownership.

I very much like the look of the light. It's been up for a few days and seems to give off enough light for the space. My husband installed it and did have to make a couple of trips to the hardware store and customize the mounting hardware. Because of weird sizing of the decorative nuts that hold everything together he couldn't just replace the bolts.

Lovely & subtle
Our kitchen ceiling is not very high, and my husband is over six feet, but I wanted something a little more elegant and substantial than a flushmount fixture. This has a nice, shallow profile but still looks great. We do not have this over a table - it might be a bit too high over a table? Depends on your taste. It's perfect for the center of our appliance area with nothing under it, because even the tallest people can walk under it. Love it!

This fixture is beautiful and just want I was looking for. It has clean lines and has a "classic" look for our colonial home's entry way. I had someone else install it but it didn't look too difficult to do.

Exactly as expected. However, did not come with screws to install the mounting bracket, be sure to have some handy.

Not the best
It is just eh looking. A pain to install based on a weird design. Not worth it in my opinion.

Love the look
The light has been installed but I've not yet been able to turn it on and see how it lights up the area...waiting for the electrician to install the switch. However, the light itself is beautiful and looks fantastic in my eating nook in the kitchen.

very nice product
This light is in a room created by enlarging a dormer. It fits into the space well, looks great with exposed rafters and collar ties and raw plaster. I expect it to hold up well.

Exactly as pictured
I put two of these in my long hallway and am very pleased.
