Beautiful Piece

The lamp is HUGE. Which is perfect for our application over the stairwell. We got the orange color and it looks really good. Plastic material not really worth the $300 but the results are.

cool shape, with some caveats

Cool design. Really shows dust and fingerprints! Electrical wiring/hookup was surprisingly cheesy for Kartell quality. Keep in mind that this lamp casts quite a colorful light (i.e. the orange lamp casts a very orange glow..)

Very big

Even though I measured I wasn't prepared for the way the size felt in the space. Also, the plastic looks cheap. I didn't like this light and plan to try to return it.

makes an impression

Didn't realize how huge this piece is but looks great. However, the price is a bit much for what it is - plastic!

nearly impossible to clean, easily scratched. a bit off kilter, in short an absolute horror. perhap ok as a disposable item at $100, but not worth $300.

Cool Light - Scratches VERY Easily - Terrible Hookup

The Good: Looks awesome, very modern

The Bad: The plastic light shade scratches easier then any material I have ever seen -I cleaned it with an extra soft paper towel and it left a million micro-scratches all over it which are easily seen when the light is on.

Having installed nearly a dozen lights in our house I have to say the light hookup / cording is the worst ever. The actual cord is oval shaped and they expect you to fit it through a small circular hole in the canopy which is nearly impossible to do (took over an hour) -- after that you still have to route it through another bracket which attaches to the ceiling. Its awful considering this light is nearly $300 and $100 lights come with better wiring / bracket devices.

Very bold - beautiful light

Very nice light fixture! The best part is that the bulb appears white even through the shade.

The down side is the cleaning. Use a very gentle, microfiber cloth to clean it. Also, I agree with the other review about how hard it is to string the wire through the top wire cover. But once it is done, you don't have to do it again!

Overall a great lamp!

A Modern Classic

Love the lamp, it´s big, simple and fun.

I do agree with the other reviewers about the cost...pretty expensive plastic. But I love it.

I am a bit concerned about the cleaning/scratching so I´m getting the Kartell plastic cleaner kit to be safe.

Beautiful Lamp

Always impressed with Kartell Products.
Beautiful design and not too expensive compared to other Designer Brands.
Plastic on FL/Y is very prone to scratches. Installation is a taxing one.
As with most European Light fixtures, the ceiling cap is much smaller than the exisiting hole. The ceiling cap should of been larger and possibly made of aluminum for the the price.
Happy with the lamp even though installation was somewhat of a challenge.

Beautiful lamp, MAJOR installation caveats

This lamp from Kartell is extremely cool but with several drawbacks. There is a reason most places don allow a return. The design is great, modern and whimsical. The plastic though is extremely fragile. Be forewarned, the shade scratches easily, I notice scratches as soon as I took off the "protective" film. But the biggest problem is the canopy and hardware that attaches to the ceiling, it doesn't, what a piece of junk. I am an experienced designer and have dealt with hardware and installations before and this was the worst process that I have ever encountered. What a major pain. It took me a whole day to put this thing up, and remember I am not a novice.

First of all, threading the electrical cable and the support cable through the nut took several hours and severe pulling to get it to slide. Because of this, it was impossible for me to get the canopy flush with the ceiling. I ended up using my old aluminum canopy from my previous lamp. Kartell's looks cool but it should go directly in the trash. If you must have this beauty, be prepared and find yourself different hardware. It will save you a lot of straining and damage to the lamp.

Modern, colorful, but simple & clean! Great product.

From esthetics point of view, the product is elegant and simple. It goes well with any environment – from “clean” white spaces, to colorful “busy” rooms. The shape is also basic, which can serve as an accent in “square” environment, or to compliment other curves in the space. Translucent material gives the product another dimension / depth.
It is light, and easy to install. It does not require any additional items (e.g. balasts, etc.).

Great product !

Not really what expected

Although I received the lamp timely, it had some sctatches. Since the palacy on the item was non refundable could not return or exchange. Overall the lamp is looking nice, however a bit expencive.

Love the pop of color

I've used this in a child's room and a living room. Big impact for a small price. First shipment was poorly packed and arrived damaged but was quickly replaced. Easy way to add a pop of color to any room.

Sunny, light and airy

Purchased the yellow version of this lamp. The yellow is a beautiful sunny colour. Creates the perfect warm glow for our Canadian winters, without too much of a colour cast. The transparent nature of this lamp is perfect for any space where you want to maintain a light and airy feel.

quality not as good as expected for a designer product

While the overall design is good the quality and finish is not. Plastic shade attracts a lot of dust and is hard to clean, installation was not easiest either (done by professional electrician)

It's a great design and a nice fixture. With that said, the housing material arrived like it had just gotten into a fight with a mountain lion. It was scratched and scuffed beyond recognition. Apparently it is prone to scratches...

We are happy with it.

It is a fixture that matched what the owner was looking for and the product was what was shown on the web site.

Great, fun light at a good price point.

Fun, plastic pendant light. Great size diameter. Good price point. Only downside is that the plastic attracts dust/dirt, so make sure you install this after all other construction is completed or you will have to clean this over and over. Overall, highly recommended.

Beautiful light, arrived with imperfection

The light is beautiful. Purchased the Sage color. It's lighter in reality than the swatch but really lovely. The bulb provided gives a very fluorescent light and not a warm incandescent light. The plastic globe arrived with a large scratch and it's been somewhat of a pain arranging for a replacement.

Very nice lamp, but got scrathes right away after removing the plastic. Disappointing!

Looks great!!

Great looking lights. Comes with a great CFL bulb too. Their size really make a great visual impact. One caveat is to make sure you clean and maintain them with proper plastic cleaning products- it is really easy to scratch them if you use windex or paper towels on the plastic

The shade is really cool and simple to install. Makes any room look mod and design oriented. A fun way to change your room and create a designer focus inexpensively

Was not impressed with the product.

The material does not represent the price paid for this. The product came with scratches. I have to say though that customer service at Y lighting has been wonderful.

Love the color and how they photograph!

I used these lights over a pick up counter and chose them over other pendants because I love the shape and translucency!

Funky look for the price

I agree with some of the other reviewers that the installation can be frustrating. Also the bulb that was included did not work but we like it for our daughter's room and are getting more for the boys' rooms. Bottom line, fun light that doesn't break the bank.
