George Nelson

When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps" — moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of."

Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as anti-human." Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.

Nelson did so as few are able, and, with the help of well-timed zaps, he helped define modern, humane design.

Love the look & very easy to install!

My biggest criticism would be regarding the packaging. By the time our light arrived, the box it was packed in had been nearly destroyed. In fact, we took photos of the box prior to opening it, just in case we had to make a freight claim. Being such a delicate item, I am surprised there wasn't more padding/protection inside the box. Other than that, we love the product itself.

great way to buy a lamp!

I had done all my homework on sizing a pendant for over the kitchen table and the medium Nelson Saucer, measuring 25 inches in diameter was a few inches over the maximum for my table size and room. It also looked massive once I took it out of the box. The gentleman I spoke to at YLighting gave me some valuable advice and told me that it's better to ere on the larger size - he was so right. My ceilings are 7 ft high but they look 9 ft with this pendant. A very easy way to shop and dither,

Very nice.

We actually exchanged this saucer lamp for the Nelson Pear lamp because of how our room was sized, but both of them were very nice quality, and beautiful. The finish is nice, and the light it gives off is warm and soft. We have ours on a dimmer switch.

Touch of Design in your home

I love this lamp!!! The first time that i saw it was on tv and i knew i have to have it in my dining room. So i looked online and i found it here, Great Price, Great Service. Unfortunately, i bought the wrong size, so i call and i exchanged it for a bigger size without any problem.

Love it!

This is such a clean modern design and really looks stunning when lit up. The light fixture came very well packaged. Was super easy to install with plenty of cord length to adjust height. The small saucer size it quite flat. We have only have a very small dining area with table for 4. If our space was any bigger I would need the medium size at least.

I'd longed for a Nelson pendant light for several years. At last, the Saucer is hanging over my dining table. It emits a soft, beautiful light. I'm using it with a diffuser, and love the effect – especially set on low at night. Very pleased with quality and fast/free shipping.

Nelson Bubble Lamp

This was our first "real" mid century modern piece and we really love it. It is the focal point of the dining room. I know you see it in almost every magazine, but what can I say it is a classic piece. We plan on getting the Cigar Bubble Lamp for the living room to tie in the whole house. Ylighting provided great service and expedited our order quickly.

We love the Nelson lamps, especially this one.

A Nelson Saucer lamp has been hanging over our dining room table since the lamp first came on the market. When it was time to replace it, we had (my family of seven) no doubts about replacing it with an exact duplicate.

Thank you very much for your good service. You were very kind and helpful, first in taking the order and afterwards keeping me posted by email about the shipping route. Delivery was as scheduled.

Great looking lamp, simple and elegant

Just moved into a loft in downtown LA. We just installed this lamp in our bedroom area and it looks great. We got the large size and it makes our room feel bigger.

Ylighting service was great. Lamp came in a huge box and was delivered very quickly.

Beautiful light over the dining table

I had always wanted this lamp and very pleased to see it every day hanging over the dining table. The large version is large, but the smaller one would have been too small. Light is on a dimmer so it works well for task, dinner, or anything. I was worried that the canopy would be inferior but it looks very polished and contemporary in my room.

The package was delivered quickly and in perfect shape.

There's a reason George Nelson's light fixtures are iconic!

We looked at many saucer shaped ceiling fixtures before choosing the George Nelson saucer which works very nicely with the Luceplan Trama and Screen fixtures in adjacent rooms in a prewar 7. All were purchased from YLighting which has become my favorite resource -- great help in selecting the lighting and fast delivery.

Nice light, doesn't disappoint

Found this Nelson Saucer lamp on Ylighting for a competitive price and with no shipping and sales tax, made it a better deal than buying through DWR. Works well in my Mtn. Style house over a long rustic table and a set of Wishbone chairs as it would in a more "modern" setting.

The saucer lamp is like a work of art. It looks great and gives off a warm soft white glow. The nickel/white combo looks very chic.

I have always loved the Nelson lamps. We have an unusual dining room table. I was concerned about which size of the Nelson Saucer Lamp would be most appropriate. I talked to a VERY helpful representative at YLIGHTING. I gave him the dimensions and explained the table. He recommended the large saucer. My lamp arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The lamp looks AMAZING and is the perfect size! We couldn't be happier. Not only is it functional, but it is a work of art.

The Nelson Saucer Lamp is one of the most versatile, elegant and reasonably priced lighting solutions available.

The Nelson Saucer Lamp is, and has always been, extremely well constructed and has such timeless design that it can enhance any decor. Considering the cost of good lighting and our investment in it, this piece is truly a bargain! YLighting has been a great company to deal with on our project.

They look fantastic!

I purchased several large Nelson Saucer Lamps for an office with a very high ceiling. They look great. The shipping didn't take much time but preparing the order for shipment took a few days (which I had not anticipated). Otherwise, no problems and I will order again from YLighting

Classic designer style sets the tone of any room.

George Nelson's bubble lamps are a true icon of mid century design. 50 years old and more popular now than ever. Nelson bubble lamps come in a style and shape to fit any space in your home. Good service and fast shipping (free on this item) by YLighting make it easy to bring a modern touch to any room.

I am satisfied with the product.

The lamp is exactly what was advertised on the website. Service was very good and I recieved the product quickly.

I am worried it might be too big for my space. The smaller lamp would only accomodate a very low wattage bulb so I had to go with the size M lamp. It would be nice if the smaller lamp would accomodate a larger bilb so the lamp could be more functional.

Please pass my concern on to the manufacturer.

I love how the saucer lamp looks over my dining table!

I was going to get the small saucer lamp, but after I gave the table dimensions and ceiling height to the sales person, he recommmed the medium lamp. I was a little concerned when it arrived because it was so much larger than the existing lamp. As it turns out, the medium is perfect! It gives so much more light than the old lamp and it is beautiful. It has changed the appearance of the room---I love it!

Beautiful space age design

We are enjoying our Nelson Bubble lamp which replaced a brass chandelier. It feels good to move in a more modern direction. The light it gives off is mysterious and pleasing. It arrived quickly and the customer service was helpful. All in all, a success.

soft light, great look!

We love the shape of this light, it is unique. The lighting is soft and flattering. Almost like candle light but does the job. It is exactly what we were looking for to style our eclectic/modern home. We have looked at many pendants and had seen this one in many magazines and put it on our "list". When we saw it in person, hanging in a furniture store, we knew it was the "one". Good customer service and everything arrived in a timely manner. We are happy with our purchase, and would shop at YLighting again.

A Classic.

The Saucer Lamp is a design classic, beautifully made, a breeze to install and when connected to a dimmer the light ranges from a calm glow to a more then adaquate light source when a higher intensity is required.

I soooooooooooooooooooooo love it.

The saucer light is great. It looks fantastic in our dining room. It was really easy to install (we have knob and tube and hence, no grounding wire, but since the saucer doesn't have one either it worked perfect!) It is a different material than I had imagined (I hadn't touched one before) - sort of a rubberized fabric or something. It is more sturdy than I thought it might be. We are really happy with every aspect of it.

Be sure of the size...this ain't no Zappos!

The saucer lamp is beautiful and modern and elegant. I love the light and it looks great in my dining room. At first I got the small because I have a small dining room and thought it would be fine... but that only takes a 60 Watt bulb and was really pretty small - good for a kitchen corner maybe or a little nook. I sent it back to get the medium - and then had to pay YLighting for my free shipping. All told it was $25 to send back the lamp.

I love the glow and look of this light!

We installed this light fixture in our new dining room -- in other words the new dining room is still being finished, and this and the ceiling are the only things ready so far -- and still, I love to walk in and just take a look at the light as it hangs (over the soon-to-come dining room table) At first I thought the large size would be too big for the room but soon realized that it commands attention in a soft way because of the material it is made of and the nice, soft glow that it gives off. We can't wait to see it in its full element when the furniture is in and the rest of the walls are finished and painted.

I'm certain that I don't need to carry on about the merits of the lamp design itself. For those who are looking are most likely familiar with what they're looking at. I will add however, that the light that comes from this lamp is perfect. It casts a well illuminated yet comfortable glow on the table and around it. The installation was very easy and the standard shipping was VERY swift. I really would rate he whole experience a 10 out of 10.

A mid-century gem! Perfect for our home!

I bought the medium sized George Nelson Saucer bubble lamp. Appreciated the fast shipping and tracking info from YLighting. The lamp was very easy to install - did it myself in less than 20 minutes. And it is absolutely perfect for our 1954 butterfly roofed ranch - looks like it's original to the house!

I like it. It's a fun light and ooks good with my concrete ceiling as a backdrop. I live in a loft, so there is lots of conduit, fire sprinkler plumbing, and HVAC. This lamp is a good focal point and makes visitors focus on it instead of the piping, etc.. Gives off a nice soft glow.

Fantastic, Classic, Modern and super cool Lamp

The bubble lamp illuminates the space, in the day looking like a sun and as the evening falls appearing as a moon. It sheds a wonderful soft glow which actually fills space with light in a very different way than other lamps. An eye catcher, something to eat dinner by or play poker under.

Great lamp!

We were concerned about whether this lamp would fit in our dining room, both in terms of size and aesthetics. Once we put it up, we loved it. It adds a real touch of class to our house and fits perfectly. We have it on a dimmer, and the light is beautiful. We ordered the med size one, concerned that 60w wouldn't be enough - but we only have a used a 60w bulb in it, and it's plenty bright for our 12x12 dining room, which we use mostly for eating. Easy to install and well made. Highly recommended.

Love the classic mid-century look

The lamp sets the tone for the mid-century look of my living room. The light is ambient, and I was going for a more subtle look so I ended up getting the small, but if you are looking for more of a statement, I recommend getting the medium/large depending on size of room.

The saucer lamp fits perfectly in my modern European house.

I am a recent arrival to the US and in the process of renovating an older house. I love a clean European look but it is proving very difficult to find modern replacements for most things. I am delighted to have found Ylighting and have already bought several light fittings. The latest is the saucer lamp which looks great above a low coffee table where it complements my black granit/stainless steel fireplace and retro furniture. The delivery was quick but I was a bit worried when I saw the condition of the box. Fortunately the lamp was not damaged. Perhaps you should use a sturdier box. I look forward to buying further lamps for the rest of the house

Love it!

The George Nelson saucer lamp is even better in person. The first one I ordered was the large size and it was BIG, so I'm ordering the smaller one. The workmanship was very high quality and the look of it was as I had imagined and hoped. I would definitely recommend it.

Exceeded expectation

Lamp was delivered in perfect condition within days of order. It was easy to hang and complements our contemporary / eclectic dining room perfectly, creating a lovely glow. It is tres chic. Recommend a dimmer switch, as it allows a great range of intensity.

The George Nelson Saucer pendant lived up to its reputation. Its beautiful, simple and iconic.

The large Geo. Nelson saucer lamp pendant was a good deal and the shipping was super fast. I would definitely buy from yLighting again....

Great lamp

It looks very beautiful on a dimmer. When it is fully lit, it has a bright diffused kind of light like shoji paper. When it is on low, it looks like candle light. I have 6 of the george Nelson lamps in my home in three different shapes. The saucer, the apple, and the lantern shape. They are all similar without being exactly the same from one room to the next.

The exact item my dining room was missing

I searched everywhere, I mean everywhere for the perfect simple light fixture for my 50's ranch home. I updated the housed but wanted to keep the original flavor and this lamp fit the bill to a t. Do not hesitate. I also compared prices everywhere and this was the best by the time you take shipping or sales tax into account. Thanks Ylighting. Will be looking for three mini pendants now and know exactly where to go.

Ordered the George Nelson saucer lamp for my dining room and am absolutely infatuated with it. It arrived at lightening speed and perfectly insulated in its Trojan horse of a box. Put it on a dimmer and viola! Simple and sexy solution to the horrific ceiling fan that came with my apartment. Excellent price and customer service. Thank you YLighting!
