We enjoy the chandelier for its design, and decor.
It works very well in the design decor of our house.
By:WILLIAM H. , Homeowner (St. Augustine, Fl)
We deliberated over which Nelson lamp to buy and where. DWR was the same price but charged for shipping (it wasn't available in their stores). I was pleased with the service and promptness.
By:David G. , Homeowner (Chicago)
The lamp is even more dramatic and beautiful than I expected - a great addition in a large kitchen nook are. It's a bit like having design from the "Jetsons" in the house! I'm pleased enough with this purchase that I'm considering another shape of this design for a hall fixture.
By:RichardN , Homeowner (Hayward, CA, USA)
We're architects, and when it came time to find just the perfect pendant light for the table in the breakfast room of our 1925 bungalow, we knew to immediately go to YLighting.com. We just clicked on the "Ceiling + Pendant Light" category and were able to narrow down our selection in moments. The Nelson Criss Cross Bubble Lamp is even more beautiful and finely crafted than the cut sheet suggests - a tremendous value from an excellent company. When we needed a longer cord for our 10'-0" ceiling, the folks at Modernica responded immediately and courteously. We're very pleased with our purchase all the way around.
By:Adrienne M. , Architect (Columbia, SC, USA)
This is a classic pendant, so you pretty much know what you're getting if you've seen one before - but the most important thing is the quality of service and the speed of delivery... both of which were wonderful...
By:Miguel M. , Architect (Brooklyn, NY)
Love this lamp! Easy installation and a great look. Shipping was efficient.
By:Amy L. , Homeowner (Chicago)
It's beautiful, and affordable. It took a while to arrive, but the wait was worth it. I would do business with YLighting again.
By:Silvia T. , Homeowner (Williamsburg, VA)
The George Nelson Cross Lamp pendant is as interesting today as it was when introduced in 1947. Even more so when illuminated (the cross wire architecture shows through the exterior membrane).
By:Dean W , Homeowner (Palm Springs, CA)
This lamp is absolutely flawless. A timeless classic that is as perfect as the original. The fiberglass body is flexible, which I hadn't anticipated... but it really adds to the glow. Highly recommended.
By:jdmc (San Francisco, CA)
The website experience was great because it was very detailed with a schematic information which help me during the remodeling process.
After I ordered the product, I received it about 3-4 days later. The product arrived unscathed, even the box looked was beautiful.
I've owned other George Nelson lamps before, so I knew what I was getting. One thing that I do have to say however, is the product photography casted some shadows which made the product look more defined and attractive. However, in person, it looked a little different. (but still beautiful.)
By:Vince L. , Homeowner (Solana Beach, CA)
I have dreamed of owning this lamp for a couple of years now. We recently moved into our first home and we finally had the place for the Crisscross Bubble Lamp. It is beautiful when the light is off, but even more beautiful when it is lit up. We used a compact Fluorescent bulb because we wanted a really white light and it looks fantastic. We just put it up and cannot stop staring at it! Ylighting was very fast and the lamp came in perfect condition. We went to our local DWR and with tax and shipping the lamp was $397, so going through Ylighting was a tremendous savings.
By:Nicole D. , Homeowner (Shelby Twp., Michigan)
The nelson bubble lamp is so beautiful! It was easy to install and has added so much to our dining area. Ylighting was wonderful and shipped quickly and our bubble lamp arrived in perfect condition. The crisscross lamp and Ylighting are both highly recommended.
By:Marc D. (Shelby Township)
This light is perfect in our dining room space. We have mid-century home but our in-laws bought the same light for their beach house (not so contemporary) and it looks equally good. Very versatile and an instant upgrade.
By:miranda w. , Homeowner (Portland, OR)
The experience with Y Lighting has been superior in terms of ordering, shipment, and communication every step of the way to getting the lamp...
By:Cynthia C. , Homeowner (San Francisco)
As a furniture designer/builder I have a keen eye for quality and construction of the Modernica made nelson lamps are up to par. The look is nothing new, but works so well in so many situations, combined with the relatively low cost it's hard to go wrong. We are happy with our purchase.
By:seth d. , Homeowner (chicago, il ,usa)
you can't go wrong with a Nelson lamp. First time ordering from YLighting and everything went well. Great email notifications and fast delivery. Glad I decided to buy from them than that "something about reach" place.
By:RCheung , Homeowner (LA)
Came quicker than expected in great shape (packed well). A different material makes-up the skin than I had expected, but it great nonetheless! Definitely recommend Y Lighting and this lamp to add something a little different than the normal bubble lamp that everyone seems to have. I definitely dig the criss-cross pattern.
And with no shipping/taxes, you can't beat the deal versus DWR, etc.
By:Alec T. , Homeowner (Boston, MA)
Huge improvement over the hideous brass fixture that used to disgrace our dining room! Love the competitive pricing, free shipping and no tax that YLighting offers!
By:Jocelyn , Homeowner (Philadelphia, PA)
We ordered this for our dining room. It looks great in our 1800's home over our cherry shaker dining table. Nice soft light, perfect for dining and also for atmosphere in the room. Great service from YLighting - fast shipping, good price. AND we saw this light fixture on "Desperate Housewives" last week...
By:MT , Homeowner (Cambridge MA)
This is one of my favorite George Nelson Bubble Lights and YLighting offered the best price with free, quick shipping. I installed this over our dining room table and it was the perfect finishing touch to the space. Our kitchen, living room and dining area are all conjoined in an open layout with some very different design choices, but this lamp looks right at home and provides a striking modern accent to the whole house. Easy installation and a great bang for the buck. We simply love it!
By:Todd G. , Designer (Brooklyn, NY)
This is the third Nelson Bubble light we have purchased.
Our first was for ourselves and the other two were gifts for our kids in their new homes because they love ours so much Classic, fun amd interesting.
Who doesn't love these lights?
By:Margaret R. , Homeowner (Longboat Key)
This is a classic, beautiful, minimalist lamp. More unique than the Nelson bubble lamp.
This was my first time purchasing from Ylighting. I was blown away by the speed of delivery even though I chose standard shipping. Before I even had time to check the tracking number, the package was at more door. I will definitely buy from Ylighting again.
By:Rock , Homeowner (Alamo)
The process of selecting and ordering the fixture from Y Lighting was great. Easy web interface, quick tracking/shipping info, fast delivery. I would order from Y Lighting again as they seem to be both inexpensive and reliable.
By:Yumi R. , Homeowner (Boulder, CO)
The lamp is perfect.
By:Joel N. , Homeowner (California)
My husband & I bought the Nelson lamp as a housewarming gift to ourselves. We were very happy with Ylighting--our lamp was priced better than other places, the shipping was free & it arrived much sooner than expected. In fact, the lamp arrived one day before I got the email that it had shipped! We are extremely pleased with our purchase & it looks wonderful in our new home!
By:Felicia J. , Homeowner (Santa Clara, California)
We purchased two of the Criss Cross Lamps for the living/dining rooms of our house currently being remodeled. We looked at lots and lots of light fixtures and felt we would never be able to afford something really great. The Criss Cross Lamp is beautiful and definitely has dramatic impact without costing thousands of dollars. We are very happy with the good service and speedy shipping from Y Lighting.
By:Sarah G. , Homeowner (seattle)
i was very impressed with the quality
By:kenclaire electric , Homeowner (westbury,ny)
I found the light I bought on sale on another site, and sent Y-Lighting an email alerting them to the price. They matched it in 24 hours and I had the product delivered by the end of the week. It couldn't have been a smoother process.
By:Matthew L. , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
Perfect for our daughter bedroom. Simple & stunning. Love the texture and the light it generates.
By:Sophie S. , Homeowner (RPV )
pkg. arrived well packaged and protected - no problems.
I would imagine cleaning instructions could be had from mfgr./distributor? - these should be included.
The bubble lamps are wonderful in design and take on different dimensions when lit at various levels of illumination - personally suggest always plan for a dimmer control.
By:russ herndon design , Designer (bloomington, IN 47401)
I needed a lamp to add a sense of warmth and timeless beauty to a very stark and minimal modern home. The light that comes from this lamp is beautiful and soft. And to top it all off, Y Lighting's customer service is great and the super fast, free delivery is extremely helpful. You can't go wrong with this lamp in any home...
By:tBone , Designer (Utah)
Superfast shipping, product is much studier than I expected. Great experience! I am using this in my fashion showroom, it definitely brings something extra to the ambiance.
By:Betty H. , Designer (Pasadena CA)
The Criss Cross Lamp was easy to install and made a dramatic and immediate impact in our dining area. We love the simple elegance it brings to our space. We highly recommend this lamp. The lamp arrived quickly - it seemed to ship almost immediately. We are so happy with our purchase and would definitely purchase again from ylighting.
By:Midcentury in Tucson , Homeowner (Tucson, AZ)
High quality yet inexpensive dining room chandelier. Gives he approopriate amount of soft overheaqd lighting for the dining table. Very attracive design and geometry.
By:Edward Z. , Homeowner (Redding, CT)
The lamp is retro, fun and completely makes the room
By:RB , Homeowner (San Francisco)
We are delighted with our new George Nelson light fixture! Not only was it affordable, but the quality is fantastic and your customer service impeccable. It hangs over our breakfast table casting a calm, beautiful glow. Mr. Nelson was obviously an artist. Thank you for making such a beautiful fixture affordable...
We do use a 150 watt bulb (which is the max). The amount of light it casts is fantastic with this bulb. We could probably use a 100 watt as well.
By:Poppy , Homeowner (Bozeman Montana USA)
Perfect for over our dining room table! The light that comes off of this lamp is gorgeous - it illuminates the space without being harsh or too bright. we have it on a dimmer which i love. Shipping was fast and YLighting was fantastic
By:Lindsey S , Homeowner (Chicago, IL)
Got this light for our dining room and it looks great. Very simple yet stylish.
By:E D Yu , Homeowner (Acton, ma)
This is a beautiful pendant - a classic. The inversions on the criss-cross aren't too pronounced, so it still retains that great saucer shape, but with a bit more visual interest than the plain saucer pendant. Great for a room that is a bit more hip, funky mid-century!
By:MARY , Designer (Minneapolis)
We went with the criss cross lamp for the added sculptural effect that the wires provide. 25" in diameter means that the light is the right size to make an statement. I'm not going to tell you about the great service or fast shipping (or the fact the we didn't have to pay taxes!) that we received from ylighting but focus more on the lamp itself. It's beautiful. We have it on a dimmer to tackle the 150W bulb, that way we can dial in the exact mood we want. The lamp is designed in a way that no part of the bulb is directly exposed to you so we can use it over a dinner table without blinding guests. Craftmanship is excellent and the light weights nothing. The material that they use to wrap is more of an hi-end, organic feel.... doesn't look like fabric sprayed with plastic. Quality is very good. It certainly adds the MCM vibe we were after and actually completes the look among the Eames DCW, LCW, Bertoias and Prouves we have around the house. I will totally recommend it. We love it and now we want more!
By:Joel P. , Homeowner (Miami, Florida)
Well packaged, good service, received a discount for finding a lower price elsewhere. The lamp is great and fits the house perfectly. Highly recommended this organization.
By:Shelley S. , Homeowner (Ann Arbor, MI)
I am so, so pleased with my saucer lamp. I had it installed in my son's room. It gave my heart a lift.
By:Elaine (Chicago, Illinois)
Ordering was easy, price was right, delivered on time and in perfect condition
By:PJB , Homeowner (Florida)
This is a great George Nelson lamp. It adapts well to a contemporary design surrounding it. It is perfectly scaled for a typical sized dining room, and provides a nice warm glow to the room.
By:capseaguy32 , Homeowner (Seattle, WA)
By:Chanyoung S. , Homeowner (Wyoming)
Great contemporary styling. This is a light that will fit anywhere in the home and you will never tire of it.
By:Greg M. , Homeowner (Grand Rapids MI)
The Criss Cross light perfectly completes our music room with its gently nuanced ambiance. Visually exciting while still comforting, it also has the benefit of providing a rounded absorptive surface that improves the room acoustics. On line purchase was smooth and convenient, packing/shipping were flawless. Thanks for easy access to a great product.
By:Mark F. , Homeowner (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA)
I love the simplicity and elegance of this lamp, which allows a full appreciation of its "architectural" underpinnings.
By:Anna G. , Homeowner (Austin, TX, USA)
I am still in the process of receiving a replacement lamp, but I wanted to assure potential purchasers of YLighting's fantastic customer service. My first lamp arrived with imperfections. YLighting asked for photos and, after they received them, they put in an order for an immediate replacement. I couldn't have been happier with the immediate response and assurance that I wasn't stuck with a $350 defective lamp! Love the design.
By:Anissa P. , Homeowner (Portland, ME)
I was reluctant to purchase this fixture because I live in a formal, traditional home. However, I love the contrast in my dining room now between the fixtures and the furniture. It's also on a dimmer switch which is great for dinner parties. I love it!
By:Jessica K. , Homeowner (washington)
We are happy with the look and quality of this fixture. We also found ylighting easy and pleasant to work with. The website was easily navigable, prices reasonable, the purchasing process straightforward, and delivery prompt (within 7 days). We will shop at ylighting again.
By:kimberly m , Homeowner (asheville NC)
The George Nelson Criss Cross Lamp is spectacular - I keep getting great comments from friends on it. It is classisc modern - just love it. It came quick and was packed perfectly. YLighting also did a price match for me as I found another site that was cheaper. Without question - they helped me out and overall - it was a great experience. i will definately buy again from YLighting.
By:Shamala B. , Designer (San Francisco, CA)
This light is gorgeous. It looks fabulous over our contemporary glass dining table! The price is very resasonable for such a classic light.
By:Sheila B. , Homeowner (st. Louis, MO)
The George Nelson Bubble Lamps are back with a vengeance. They're ubiquitous on teevee, where they're meant to convey that somebody is stylish and hip. They're not something you can pick up at the big box hardware depot.
The Criss Cross Lamp is a little less obvious than the famous Saucer Lamp. It's a great design, and we get all sorts of compliments on ours.
By:Mike J. , Homeowner (Ventura, CA, USA)
By:Peggy K. , Designer (New York, NY, USA)
This product was delivered so quickly and is exactly as portrayed. Great service and price!
By:Sashabean , Homeowner (San Francisco)
This is a timeless fixture that will always have a fresh, modern look. Perfect in the dining room of my mid century home. It was quick and easy to install and looks great.
By:D B. , Designer (Seattle)
Best price after doing much research.
By:rozik , Homeowner
I'm so happy with the Nelson Criss Cross Lamp I purchased from YLighting. It's beautiful and perfect over our dining table. YLighting matched a price I found on the internet, even to the point of not charging me tax because the other company was out of state. Their service and product are unbeatable!
By:Rebecca , Homeowner (Pasadena, CA)
Overall pleasing lamp but the indentations are not as pronounced as I had expected. I returned the lamp. YLighting are excellent regarding their return policy - 100% return minus shipping charges.
By:Kiran S. , Homeowner (NV)
Overall, my experience with ordering my light fixture from YLighting was extremely positive. My order was shipped immediately. The light fixture I ordered was very reasonably priced and the quality/design was excellent...exactly what I had hoped for!
Thank you YLighting!
By:Christine S. , Homeowner (san mateo, CA USA)
This is a gorgeous fixture with a beautiful sculptural quality; nicely scaled and throws a flattering light over a dining room table whether dimmed or all the way up. Very high quality and easy to install.
I am also pleased with how the order was carried out and delivered.
I wanted and needed to replace my old Bubble lamp of 40yrs But I wanted
something slightly different and the Criss Cross Lamp was the perfect answer.
It will certainly be noticed and admired.
By:Shirley B. , Homeowner (Tiburon, CA, USA)
The fixture arrived quickly and in good condition. It was exactly how it was pictured online. Nothing to complain about!
By:PW , Designer (San Francisco)
This fabulous crisscross lamp brings both hip and elegance into our dining room. It looks great with our mid-century modern style.
By:Laurie G. (Portland, Oregon)
I've wanted this dining area light for quite some time and Y Lighting had a sale on this and other Nelson light fixtures. The price was excellent and the fixture arrived, completely assembled, in short time.
My dining area is now complete and the Criss Cross fixture is the icing on the cake.
By:Patricia D. , Homeowner (Miami Beach, FL USA)
Needed a pendant lamp that could fit a rather eclectic combination of old and new furniture (antique asian furniture/decor as well as modern Scandinavian), and the Criss Cross Lamp did the trick!
By:Boston G. , Homeowner (Boston, MA)
This is our second purchase of the Nelson Criss Cross; our first stayed in a home we just sold. It has always been the perfect balance of design and everyday, formal and casual, hip and classic. My only caution for this particular version of the Nelson bubble lamps is that we found it overwhelmed by the room in our new home, even though the room itself is approximately the same size as the previous one. Because of it's smaller size & fewer vertical lines it has a delicate quality & is overpowered by heavy elements. We'll have to order a larger one for our room and find a new spot for the criss cross...
By:paperjodes , Homeowner (Issaquah, WA)
This light worked out wonderfully for our application. It casts off soft beautiful light and is timeless yet contemporary. We were very pleased with YLighting's service from purchase to delivery. Great product!
By:Dawn K. , Designer (Spokane Washington)
Beautiful. Easy to install.
Did I mention beautiful?
By:Michael D. , Homeowner (san antonio)
We just installed this light over our kitchen table during a renovation that mixes modern with mid-century modern. It looks amazing. With a dimmer, the light has a nice glow at various levels. The construction is sound, it isn't as fragile as you might think. Highly recommended, and probably can't be beat for a designer mid-century piece at this price point.
By:Shawn T. , Homeowner (DC)
I've waited for this light for a very long time. We just remodeled and hanging this over our dining table was the perfect final piece for pulling the whole room together. It's sophisticated without being overly pretentious--a chance to marry unique design with function. I'm proud to say my children will grow-up knowing about George Nelson and his work. I did not install it, but my husband did not swear while doing it so take that for what it's worth....
By:Kirsten T. , Homeowner
This lamp is so beautiful in my craftsman home. I love the warm, ethereal light. goes with everything. y lighting was great!
By:rsa , Homeowner (Oakland, CA)
Pros: Bought the lamp from YLighting 3 weeks ago and it arrived within 10 days. It met our expectations of helping bring a 21 century look to our dated set up of the 80s and the results are very pleasing.
By:Shashi , Homeowner ( Massachusetts)
I hung this fixture above my dining room table and it's beautiful. We've gotten a lot of compliments, the eye is drawn to it when you walk in the door. And, it gives off a soft glow even with our compact flourescent light bulb, which don't usually give off the warmest light. It did give off a plastic smell for the first few days, I maybe should have let it "air out" outside before hanging it, but otherwise it's perfect!
By:Andrea P. , Homeowner (Montpelier, VT)
The pendant light was even more beautiful than I imagined . Very good quality shade and hardware, excellent illumination, and beautiful look. It makes my 60's home look hip...I am so pleased that I am considering a Nelson light for two other rooms.
By:Lawrence P. , Homeowner (Seattle)
I am so pleased with the purchase. It was easy to install, and is beautiful to look at.
By:Angela O. , Homeowner (new york, new york, usa)
I can get over how beautiful my criss cross lamp looks in my dining room. I absolutely love it!
By:Rosaura L. , Homeowner (Whittier, ca, USA )
It was delivered quickly and was straight forward to install. Installed it with dimmer switch (which I recommend) over dining room table. Works well in a modern interior. Love George Nelson stuff!
By:Tracey , Architect (San Jose)
Shipping was fast, the fixture arrived quickly, and was packaged appropriately
By:Joseph B. , Architect (Washington, DC, USA)
Really works for space! Ideal!
By:Andrew M. , Designer (Los Angeles)
Great looking, unique lamp. Fabric is very durable and cleanable. This is not an knockoff lamp, and the difference in quality is very apparent.
By:Eric S. , Homeowner (San Diego)
We decided to try a Criss-Cross lamp for a different twist on the traditional Saucer style. It was very easy to install. We recommend a dimmer be used with the lamp. It gives off a wonderful, glare-free light at full wattage; turn the dimmer down to set the mood. We get a happy feeling every time we turn the lamp on, so we leave it on most of the time! Wonderful product and service!!
By:George H. , Homeowner (Grand Rapids, MI)
We decided to try the Criss Cross Saucer for a different twist to the regular Saucer. We were not disappointed! The lamp arrived well-packaged, was easy to install, and gives off an incredible, glare-free light! Recommend installing a dimmer for the lamp. Crank it up for maximum lighting; turn it down to set the mood. Having this light on makes us happy, so it is usually lighting up our dining room! Great product, great Customer Service!
By:George H. , Homeowner (Grand Rapids, MI)
Just as you would expect it to be - classic MCM. Several sizes to choose from making it very versatile. Love this light!
By:AB , Homeowner (Dallas)
Sent with great care and timeliness. Thank you. The lamp is truly awesome and looks great in its location.
By:Rodolfo S. , Homeowner (Wimberley, TX)
This lamp is a piece of art to look at. It has nice curves and casts a pleasant glow. It is worth the money.
By:T , Homeowner (NY, NY)
Very happy to receive this and looks great over dining room table.
By:Rick R. , Homeowner (New York)
This fixture provides great light and really adds a great look over a glass table.
By:Lois D. , Homeowner (westchester, ny)
The Saucer Criss Cross Lamp is a bit more dynamic in its form than the some of the other Nelson lamp series. Was a great solution for my client's space. Plus YLighting is so easy to work with.
By:Mary Helen P. (Austin, TX USA)
It's an awesome light. Bigger than I thought and initially it looks like an spaceship if you hang it too low. It's well built.
By:Mike C. , Designer (chicago)
The crisscross is a modern twist to this classic. It's a wonderful addition to my other mid century pieces. I was delighted when it arrived earlier than expected. This was the perfect finish to my eclectic mix.
By:Yolanda , Homeowner (Novi MI USA)
Love the product. I had a little trouble with my debit card durring the ordering process that was annoying, but apparently they got it worked out because my light arrived quickly after I called to figure out what the problem was.
By:Michelle H. , Homeowner (Boise, Idaho)
I,ve been living with a bare lightbulb in the ceiling fixture for 21 years! No kidding! But the wait was worth it. I bought the medium size lamp and hung it about 14 in. below our 9'5" ceiling. I wasn't sure if it would look right so close to the ceiling, but I took a chance... and it looks positively ethereal!
Not like a lamp, but like something beautiful from another dimension. It floats in space. Everybody loves it!. I chose to use use a 75W incand. bulb rather than the 150W max, and the illumination level is perfect. Happy!
By:Ona D. (chicago IL)
It's a beautiful lamp, easy to clean, maintain, elegant but minimalist, affordable.
By:Nelda A. , Homeowner (Miami, FL, United States)
this is the second time i have used this lamp in my dining room. the light is very nice from it and i get so many compliments on the uniqueness of this lamp.
By:Joan B. , Homeowner (plymouth , ma)
I never knew a lighting fixture could make me feel this way. I'm absolutely giddy over it! Our electrician easily installed it. Great quality, unique and it takes up to a 150 watt bulb so it's actually a functional chandelier. Best purchase I've made in a while!
By:Julie S. , Homeowner (Massachusetts)
we were looking for years for this great design and happy to find it eventually for a fair price!
By:Maria , Homeowner (San Francisco)
This light is so different from anything we looked at for this project. It was a huge hit.
By:Rebecca H. , Designer (Doylestown, PA)
I feel lighting is what makes a room. This light goes beyond that. It is the room.
