very nice light

Simple and elegant
By:Yakuh A. , Architect (San Francisco)
I installed a pair of these over a kitchen island, and am very pleased with the results. Simple, elegant, yet interesting design. Used half-chromed bulbs so that the light didn't get in a person's eyes. Given the transparency of the fixture, selecting the correct bulb is key. I've purchased other light fixtures from the Danish firm -- everything they do is fresh, modern, sophisticated but understated at the same time.

This is a great contemporary pendant light. It's completely clear, small in scale - just scaled up from a lightbulb - and unobtrusive, yet totally cool in it's see thru aspect. Looks fantastic over our kitchen counter.

I cannot speak highly enough of YLighting and their products. We received this along with a large order of various items in a timely and informed manner. Their customer service was purely a pleasure to deal with. This pendant light is lovely and came packaged to protect the fragile glass. It was exactly as I expected. We have not installed it yet, but I have seen the same model at a local restaurant, Proof, and it looks gorgeous with the bulb hanging slightly below the lower rim of the pendant.

I just bought my first home. It is a slightly contemporary structure, but I moved by comfort and skew towards transitional furnishings for that reason.
So, with that said, I was down to two varied fixtures to be placed above my new dining table. It was between this pendant and the drum type which is more traditional.
I chose this fixture for its simplicity. I like it because it celebrate lighting with its shape and does not call much attention to itself.
My only disappointment is that the cord has yet to flatten out. Since it is a little twisted, it picks up light at certain places along the cord and not others and therefore looks, well, twisted and unclean.

Very stylish. Easy to install. Works perfectly over an island or a bar. Note that the base mount will be slightly smaller than the traditional 4" box that your electrician will install for a pendant light. As such, be prepared to caulk, patch and paint around the mount. It's a little extra work, but not may pieces are this stylish for the price.

warm light in a contemporary design

I used this pendant at a modern kitchen island and it truly complimented the clean lines of the cou ter and the island exhaust hood.
By:Kevin L. , Architect (St. Louis, Mo, USA)
Well made. Glass is thick and beautifully made.
By:Rehab , Homeowner (St Louis, Missouri)
I really loved the retro feel of this fixture. I just wished I had measured better in advance. Otherwise it is lovely.

There seems to be so few line voltage pendants on the market that are well-designed, small in size and have adequate light output. We adapted this fixture to fit onto a line voltaqge track system and are quite pleased with the results (so pleased that we installed a total of 6 in a recent home remodel).
By:Mchael M. , Architect (Seattle,Washington, USA)
The pendant arrived on time, customer service was very helpful on the phone, easy to shop website and good information on the products(pictures of the hardware would be helpful).
I wish the pendant glass had a few options for colors as well the junkbox cap that goes on the ceiling which is white and doesn't go well with the pendant itself. Not a big deal since I can easily buy a different one.

The Bulb Pendant Light is a great, reasonably priced fixture that has a simple reductive look --works well with the PAR20 light, making it a nice, semi-industrial clean "working" fixture.
The bulb, when screwed in has a tendency not to sit completely straight in the porcelain socket --but if you remove and unscrew the entire fixture it can be somewhat corrected. Again, as a hanging light you don't really notice this. Works well in many spaces. I would recommend.

I love the look and feel of these pendants which are now hanging in our kitchen pass-through window area. We will be installing directional LEDs in them to complete the transparent look.

This lamp is perfect if you are searching for a simple, clean and modern pendant light, in a rather small size (barely bigger than an average bulb). I have used three on my kitchen island, I love them and I constantly receive compliments for them.
Two things to keep in mind: these are transparent lamps, so the lights flows and could get in your eyes, depending on where you hang them- they are definitely not spots. Second, the glass lamp gets dirty from the dust in the air and you will see it when the light is on. Do not buy if you cannot live with it - or clean more often than I do.

we hung three over our kitchen island and used small, low wattage flood bulbs - looks good.
By:Barbara K. , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
This light is stunning and well constructed. The glass is solid and substantial. This light is wonderfully versatile, capable of being paired with both modern and more traditional elements (or both). I highly recommend it.
By:Matthew , Designer (Washington, DC)
This light is awsome if you are looking for a simple yet sophisticated look to accent a room. I installed it above a stairway and it looks great. I would recommend it in multiples over a counter top or just as one over a small accent table..

This pendant is lovely. It's simple, functional and the perfect size. I am using it in my new kitchen over my sink. Very happy.

LOOKS BETTER IN THE PICTURE. PRODUCT ARRIVED IN BAD FORM. YLIGHTING CUSTOMER SERVICE HAS BEEN GREAT.
By:Ian N. , Architect (MONTREAL)
Great light at great price point. Simple, clean and suitable for many different aesthetics

We purchased these lights for over our Island. Works well in the space, good task lighting. Great look and well made. Good purchase.
By:Nicole , Homeowner (Colorado)
I love the simplicity of these pendants. They are beautifully made. The design is both elegant and fun at the same time. We purchased two of them to go over our kitchen island.
By:Myers , Homeowner (Carmel, CA)
Great light! We used them over our bar and they look great. They put off a good amount of light so they are good for task lighting.
This beautiful, simple design works perfectly as an overhead light in our home office.
By:Meg , Homeowner (New York City)
Very happy with it - me and gf, too.
By:Krys G. , Homeowner (VA)
Used two pendants in a small bathroom in front of a mirror. Even with 40-W bulbs, they light up the room quite nicely.
By:C.K. , Homeowner (San Francisco, CA)
Very high quality light. Lends a modern look to my old home. Installation was easy, just wish the ceiling plate was a bit larger.
By:Brent F. , Architect (Oklahoma City)
This fixture has a minimal, understated look but is very well made. Looks great with either a vintage Edison bulb or MR halogen, and lets the lightbulb stand out.
By:Amber K. , Designer
Fast delivery, carefully packed, easy to install, and beautiful. Love this product. I have two hanging over an island in my kitchen
By:A.C. , Homeowner (SF, CA)
These pendants look great alone or in multiples. I had originally orderedthree to go over my bar, but when that didn't work out (due to my ceiling), I couldn't bear to send them back so I put one in my pantry and two in my BR closet.
By:Amy Z. , Homeowner (new york, ny)
great pendant light for over my center island in a very open room with fantastic views. being highly transparent, they offer great light, without cluttering the views - very easy to install as well.
By:Allan , Homeowner (Burr Ridge, IL)
Good value easy to install very satisfied
By:Jeff C. , Designer (Las Vegas nv)
The aesthetic of the product was well suited for the space and worked out well. Y lighting was helpful in narrowing down the choices and mkaing the decision a bit easier

This is a beautiful light. The only complication we ran into was the fact that we didn't order the UL listed model the first time. If in Canada, and building a new house be sure to order the UL listed model to pass our building code.
By:M.M. , Designer (Regina, SK, Canada)
These lights have a wonderful design and shape. However when they are in use the glare is terrible. It does not matter what bulb you use it is not possible to produce a good light. Bulbs are difficult to find and there are no clear instructions what bulbs to purchase. Would not buy these again.
By:Helen B. , Designer (New York, New York)
When not on this light is very good looking. However, it produces an uneven and glaring light. Not a good product.
By:Helen B. (New York, New York)
These are great pendant lamps, casting beautiful light over my kitchen dining bar.
By:Miem , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
Great product came fast. Hope to find a bulb that fits well
By:Anonymous , Designer (California )
Have two of these in our bathroom and they look very nice.
By:Kevin , Homeowner
Fits well with our kitchen. Easy install and attractive.
By:Jeffrey H. , Homeowner (Boston)
This is a beautiful fixture, it arrived quickly and looks great as an accent light in our new powder room.
By:Kendra , Designer (Evanston IL)
Purchased two of these for over a kitchen island and they look great. Even though expensive they seem like good value compared to similar modern pendant light fixtures.
As others have stated, one issue is dust and/or fingerprints that appear very easily on these lights. Not hard to clean and doesn't bother me, but could be an issue for some people.
I use 60A19HM half chrome A shape 60W bulbs and they look really good in this fixture.

Looked for a long time before finding these very cool pendants. These blend in and stand out at the same time.
