If you've got a big space/tall ceiling for this one, it is just great with a soft luminous feeling.

This product is Beautiful! Very well made it will be a great accent for our clients' Master Dressing Room.

This lamp must be physically seen to fully appreciate the exquisite design. The flow of the form, around itself makes you change location to take in the complete design. The shipping was incredibly fast and ordering could not have been more expedient.

This Nelson Bubble Lamp was the perfect solution I was looking for to replace my run down fixture in my dining room. It truely shedded new light on the space. You can't go wrong with this product or any of the other designs.

The shape and construction of this Propeller Lamp make it a beautiful hanging sculpture.
Instructions for hanging were simple and the package in which it arrived was sturdy and protected the lamp well.

I found it very easy to install, instructions were easy to follow. The lamp is so beautiful when installed.

I like the propeller because it's different and more unique than the other Nelson lamps, which tend to be more common.

The propeller lamp added brilliance to a simple room and we received wonderful service from Ylighting.

timeless and classic. looks amazing when hung, definitely makes a statement. if you like clean simple lines, you can't go wrong with the propeller. box got wet from rain but inside was well packaged with plastic. there was a small half-inch rust colored blemish on the lamp, most of it came off with a damp cloth.

very excited about getting is light into place. we are currently building a home so it hasn't been hung yet. looks awesome from the box.

Pros - retro contemporary, easy install (light electric), gives off great glow
Con - pacakaging could be much better, first one arrived damaged. It was handled quickly and proffeesionally

The included cable is long enough to work in rooms with high (13'-15') ceilings and can, of course, be shortened.

The light quality from this lamp is soft and beautiful. The look is timeless. Its made from top quality materials as well. It has inspired me to purchase more from the collection in the future.

Pictures do not do this fixture justice. The "propellers" are more pronounced than photos show. We have bubble fixtures in both of our sons rooms.

I just live this light

The Nelson Propeller Lamp looks amazing whether it's on or off!
By:Craig O. , Homeowner (Edina, MN)
The propeller lamp was the final piece of the puzzle in our bedroom. We love it. Ylighting has a great website. Product was shipped promptly and packaged very well. We will definitely be using ylighting in the future.

GREAT lamp. The 150 watts means you get LIGHT (so many bad fixtures these days don't illuminate except downwards)
It's easy to have on a dimmer, giving you a huge range, and the light is 360 degrees and diffused. I have it in my office and it's perfect.
Plus it's a great sculptural presence when it's not lit, I love the shape.

The perfect dining room fixture to complete a mid century remodel. Tons of warm light in an iconic design.
By:Matt F , Homeowner (Minneapolis, MN)
We have the Propeller Lamp as well as the Saucer Lamp, and couldn't be happier. This is an absolutely beautiful lamp, that is great for a really high ceiling. It's a true piece of art!!
By:Molly , Homeowner (Melrose, MA)
We have several saucer and cigar shaped lamps, and we love them! But we decided to try the more unique Propeller for a bedroom. Lamp arrived to us on time and in perfect condition. Packaging for all Bubble lamps we have bought is excellent. We installed it using a 150 watt bulb and dimmer switch. Perfect for our room! The George Nelson Bubble Lamps are well made, not a cheap knockoff. A timeless product that will last many years, we will not get tired of it.

My aesthetic is mildly modern, I own a few popular mid-century pieces such as the Eames lounge, a case study rocker and tulip table. I find that these pieces are timeless and mix well with just about any interior design, they are not strictly for modern interiors. I've now added the George Nelson Propeller lamp in my kitchen dining nook right over my tulip table, I'm pleased to report it looks awesome. The lamp has a beautiful glow with my white light CFL and catches the eye even unlit during the day. It truly is a fascinating piece, so much so my wife who doesn't care much for modern design insisted on ordering another one ( CC Saucer - also a wonderful eye catcher).
To add to this, I would imagine like myself most buyers are going to wonder if this item is worth the cost. That's a legitimate question, the lamp is wonderful, does it look like it costs $300+... I'm not going to lie, someone uninformed will probably ask if you got it at Ikea. That being said its very well constructed and I like that its made in Michigan just like they made them over 60 years ago. For me I appreciate the design and detail that Modernica has put into the George Nelson lamps, so I have no regret about paying what I did since it brings a positive feeling when ever I view it.
Installation took about 30 minutes with removal of my old lamp, very easy compared to some other lamp installations that I have done over the years.
