In addition to its unique and attractive design, I love the idea behind this fixture: flat pack = minimal eco impact. However, despite my engineering mind, I couldn't assemble the fixture. After two hours of fiddling, I discovered a misalignment that had a domino effect. I am trying to take the whole thing apart to start over, but once assembled, this is not easy to do (the wood pieces break and splinter easily, and only two spares are included). Perhaps distributors should offer an "expert assembly" service for an additional fee!

I put the fixture together with ease although the instructions are a bit confusing. The instructions are incorrect in their specification of the bulb. An American Candelabra does not fit the socket. You must purchase as converter that reduces the size of the socket. Once the converter is installed many bulbs will fit.
In our situation the single fixture looks a bit strange. I am going to purchase another one and hang it from a different outlet. I think the two will bring my ceiling together.

This clubhouse space was a relatively flat room with everything at pretty much the same height off the floor. We varied the hanging heights of the six pendants and the room is now rich with depth,dimension and texture. Love them, except the assembly part which is difficult at first until you get the hang of it.

Comes in a box like an erector set, but went together easily. It's dramatic and perfect in our newly renovated contemporary home.

I would not buy this product again, however, as the price does not justify a rather time consuming and intricate assembly. Moreover, the light fixture requires a European bulb which we cannot find in NYC (!) at the required voltage.

We're very happy with this lamp -- the shade came out beautifully. The first couple steps of the assembly took a little while to figure out, but once we got the hang of it, it went quickly. (The whole thing took less than an hour.) We got the UL listed lighting kit and haven't had any trouble fitting the bulb into it. We're very happy with this lamp and can't wait to see it in action in our bedroom.

The fixture's appearance changes from day to evening. The lamp illuminates the interior side of the fixture at night to create an impressive pattern and glow. It reminds us of the Petoskey stones that we collect along the shore of Lake Michigan. And it works perfectly with the organic theme of our mountain house. We plan to purchase two smaller versions of this fixture for our house.

I love this lamp because it's a modern yet warm accent to the overall look of the room.

The light is beautiful. It is easy to put together. However, it is a European design, and the specified bulb is not shipped with the product and is not available in the U.S. Y-lighting did not know about this or help me find one.

This light arrived within a week, was a great price and will look fabulous in our beach house - thanks!

A little tricky to assemble, but totally worth it. Looks great and casts cool shadows on the walls with a clear bulb.

Beautiful as a sculpture, and even more magnificent when illuminated and the shadows are revealed. Make sure you have a bit of patience to put it together - the video referenced in the instructions was very helpful. We used this fixture in a bedroom, but it would also look fantastic in a high ceiling hallway.
