Got this lamp for over our dining table. It was easy (for our electrician) to install. The pulley action is smooth and quiet -- just a tiny bit of a squeak sometimes. We got the longer 12 foot cord and the counterweight balance still works fine. With a dimmer switch it's great for the dining table, which we use as a work area as well. The only complaint is that the cloth covering on the cord inevitably gets twisted, so you see a bit of that in the silhouette -- I mean, it's not a perfectly smooth cord texture. But that's a minor point and perhaps adds to the charm of it being sort of an old-fashioned and industrial light.

I love the light. It fits in perfectly in my home and visitors always comment on the fixture.

Bought 3, 2 for the office, one for my home. They are perfect! Not too obtrusive, modern yet classic at the same time.

I replaced a light in my elderly mothers kitchen with this one so she could easily change the bulb. It looks great and has worked great. However after 5 years of being near the beach the pulleys are starting to stick.

I love this light and the easy pulley system.
It has clean lines without looking cumbersome, like other pulley fixtures.
We use it above our kitchen table and it works great!
