Glass Pendants Series 12" Single-Light Stem-Hung Pendant with an Etched Glass Cone Supporting a Curved Clear Glass Shade
A neat fixture but...
...the glass shade does read more "green" than clear. I don't know what the properties of glass cause that effect but it happens with my glass shelves and tabletops even though looking through them there is no color. My problem is my white, black, and beige bathroom. In it, the fixture looks "green". I've hung it anyway and if I can't get past the "color" in time, I may paint it black or frost the shade similar to the globe. FYI - I've also attached a picture of the toggle that allows the fixture to be attached to a vaulted ceiling.

Even more beautiful in person!
This light is gorgeous! I have it over a small dining room table and I keep waiting for it to get dark every evening so I can turn it on! We have it on a dimmer switch, which I recommend. At first I put in a 100W bulb, but it was too bright--so I switched to a 60 and it is very bright. I had read a review about how the glass got dusty but I haven't really found that to be a problem. I can't recommend this light highly enough!! It took a very average looking space and turned it into something wonderful! The frosted glass gives it a beautiful glow, especially when it is dimmed down. I would buy this again if I moved!!! Can't believe how reasonable the price was, either. It looks so much more expensive than it is!

This light spoke to my whimsical side when I saw it and I said "Why not?" It reminds me of a spaceship and is just "different" enough to be fun. It's the light source for our entry area -- you walk directly into a great room with a cathedral ceiling. The area was sorely in need of a focused, bright light source that also needs to provide light for the adjacent coat closet. We're "refreshing" our home and this says to visitors -- "Welcome to our "new" home," which is emerging from a 30-year year old crowded, rather stodgy great room and becoming a bright environment with "only necessary" clean-line furniture and lots of open space - kind of like the place we bought in 1977!

I chose these lights because they matched another light fixture I had in my kitchen. They work perfectly over the counter, and cast brighter-than-expected light on my workspace. I had them mounted on a track, and my electrician said they were easy to install. They're a snap to clean, and changing the bulb (I haven't had to do that yet) is so much easier than most of the enclosed pendant fixtures. I found something similar at one of the big box stores, but the quality of the materials was visibly lacking. I'm glad I paid a little more and purchased a far superior product.

New Kitchen lighting
My wife kept bugging me about changing out the kitchen lighting. She selected two of these and then wanted a third to go over the dining table. The install was about 15-20 min per fixture. The different lengths of nickle brushed metal tubing allowed me to stagger the lights. I might would have wanted the option for a shorter length tubing so I could adjust the length even more. On one of the lights, I had left the joint between the glass and the stem loose and I had a hard time screwing the lightbulb in very well. I made sure I tightened the next lamps at all of the joints and that seemed to prevent that problem. All and all this was a pretty easy project. I think the pendant lights look great in our kitchen. It gives our kitchen a more modern look.

The perfect compliment to my kitchen remodel
I spent about a year searching for good looking, affordable, lighting for my kitchen island. I wanted contemporary task lighting that also threw some light onto the walls as my kitchen only had canned lighting. Most of the comtemporary fixtures I liked are really expensive. My biggest obstacle was that we have low ceilings so I wanted lighting that wouldn't obstruct your vision too much and was had the option to compensate for the height issue. I chose two of these pendants because the were an overall height of I think 18 inches at the shortest adjustment. With 100 watt bulbs and a dimmer they can be quite bright or soft and romantic. They are perfect and worth the time and effort I put into their selection. Shipping was fast and they arrived in perfect condition.

Love these pendant lights!
I was a little apprehensive ordering these pendants on-line but I am so pleased with how it all turned out. They look incredible! It was the perfect touch for my kitchen remodel.

Good Show !!!
Light was exactly what we ordered. We just renovated our kitchen and it looks great over the sink. I would certainly check with Direct Lighting before making my next purchase.

Better Than The On-line Photo!
These pendant lights caught my eye while I was shopping on-line. We lost our home in a wide spread fire last year and are rebuilding. Since we are doing everything with an ultra modern approach, I was looking for simple, clean lines and function. When they arrived I was extremely pleased! They will hang over the kitchen island and provide stylin' and much needed light. Most importantly, I think they have a fresh "new" look to them and will be relatively easy to keep clean. I'm very happy with my purchase and the pricing was a factor for me, too.

Love this pendant!
This pendant looks a lot better then on the picture and fits the style of our dinette. The light is very bright, so we didn't even noticed replacing 3 60W lamps with one 100W. It's very stylish and modern looking and installation was very easy. Would recommend it to everyone who likes sleek modern design.
