My sons love this light. It has a "Star Wars" feel, but with a happy glow. Feels architectural and fun at the same time.

This light added a much needed dimension to our son's bedroom. And he loves it too! There were no installation instructions included but found some on-line and it was easy.

the light is beautiful, with a nice textural/architectural feel that adds a lot to the room. but, had to look online for directions (there were none in the box).

Really pleased with the Le Klint Pendant 169. I purchased two of them for a large sunroom. They are very lightweight and were extremely easy to install (even though there were no directions). The quality of the product is better than I expected; I was a little concerned about how the folded plastic would look but they are very cool and contemporary. They really work for us and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to punch up a room with a contemporary fixture.

This chandelier is basically huge Origami - it's a single piece of folded shiny material that is joined on one easily missed seam. Two metal loops keep the folded material in place at the top and bottom, as well as clamp it on to a bulb (hidden inside the chandelier) on a white cord that hangs down from the ceiling. The ceiling mount is a white, smooth cone shape, about the size of a wide waffle cone. The ceiling mount is basic and seemingly designed not to distract from the centerpiece it's holding up. All told the lamp probably weighs 5 lbs.
You could be put off by the fact that you are basically buying a sheet of (expertly shaped) plastic, which is then hung off a inexpensive looking cord and bulb. But don't be - it's beautifully crafted, architecturally captivating, and definitely a draw for the eye. It's a show-piece that would fit well in a modern home, without breaking the bank.
Note, it doesn't come with installation instructions, which I found to be a pretty annoying oversight. The installation is relatively straightforward, however, and any electrician or moderately experienced/very handy home-owner will be comfortable with.

I installed this pendant as the central light fixture in a very small (9'x9') bedroom, and the effect is simply striking. The shape is modern but soft, and with a dimmer gives off a warm glow even using CFLs. As I had expected, the single bulb is not sufficient to light even a small space alone, so do not count on this being the sole light source for your space.
The plastic does attract dust, but it can be easily cleaned with the right vacuum attachment. YLighting's price was the best anywhere, period, and I received the light a mere two days later with standard shipping â€” will definitely return for next light purchase.

I bought this light for my dining room in my mid century modern home. Looks great, perfect size for my 48" round dining room table.

I have it hanging over the table in my "transitional style" kitchen's atrium. It's the light I leave on throughout the evening - it is just so beautiful to look at.
My electrician complained about installation, but it really didn't take him long. We were missing a small piece critical for hanging, but LeKlint sent it in a timely manner.
