21" Modern 3 Light Bath Fixture from the Taylor Collection
Great light fixture
When I purchased this for my guest bathroom, I was looking for a 3-light fixture, down lighting, glass shades on the smaller size, cylinder shape shades, and a satin nickel finish. First, the antique nickel finish matches my satin nickel finishes just fine. That said, this passed all requirements except it says it isn't down lighting. Well, I am an engineer so I said I will come up with a solution no matter what the issue might be. After putting the shades on and inspecting it, I could see no reason why it couldn't be mounted with the shades down. I suspect the manufacturer states that because it is the style they were going for. In fact, from a structural standpoint, it is better suited to be mounted down with the load below the mounting point. From an electrical standpoint there is no difference. From a typical user standpoint, with it mounted down it won't collect dust, there will be more light directed where you want it, and you will have more options in terms of space (since the shades can hang over the mirror below if you like). Therefore, ignore what it says about how to mount it and enjoy!

Love these fixtures
We were doing a bathroom remodel and needed good lighting to go over our 36" mirrors. I wanted something in polished chrome and with down lighting. Our bathroom is about a 12X5' bathroom and we chose not to purchase lighting in the shower, so we knew it needed to be bright. We purchase 2 of these fixtures and I could not be happier. I specifically wanted a opal glass shade, not the frosted glass (there's a difference). With the frosted glass, you could still see the outline of the light bulb through it, and that's not what I wanted. These opal lamp shades are perfect! The product didn't specify if it could be mounted in the down position, but after calling the manufacturer and confirming that we could mount it down, we decided to go forward with this. We had no issues installing. The product states that it could take up to 100 watt bulbs, but we purchased 75 watt one's and they are plenty of light. We do also have these lights on a dimmer. These are so modern yet elegant looking for the bathroom. Our contractor complimented on how nice they look too. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone.

Modern and Tasteful
These fixtures are well made, classic design. The globes are a bit tricky to install, so allow plenty time to master the technique.
