Between 1969 and 1987 Poul Christiansen brought innovative and exciting dimensions to Le Klint's lamp shades. Prior to his involvement the shades had been folded in pleats and in straight lines across the pleats. Poul Christiansen discovered that folding in mathematical curves gave the lamp shades beautiful and unique sculptural shapes.
Modern Danish Lighting from Le Klint
P.V. Jensen Klint was an architect and also a far-sighted and visionary gentleman. He had designed a stoneware oil lamp which needed an appropriate shade. What does the gifted and curious designer do? He invents a unique product – a lamp shade with folding across the pleats.
P.V. Jensen was a Bachelor of Engineering, an architect and a painter. One must accentuate two achievements which still remain after his death. One is the Grundtvig Church in Copenhagen and the other is the cross pleated lamp shade which 40 years later went into production under the company name of LE KLINT.
Tage Klint, son of P.V. Jensen Klint, was the creative entrepreneur who in 1943 chose to turn the family's artistically folded lamp shades into a regular business. He also added a crucial detail to the original shades; the unique “collar” at the top of the lamp, designed to fix the shade to the metal stand. Furthermore, he designed a number of lamps which have all been a part of LE KLINT's assortment.
In 1953 his son, Jan Klint, took over the company. As a business man, he was years ahead of his time. In order to secure his employees, he created a fund which has since 1972 been in charge of the company LE KLINT. In addition, the fund supports former employees, designers and architects.
The unique concept and the enterprising Klint family would not have been enough on their own, because without one particular resource, namely all the skilled pleaters at Le Klint, it would have been impossible to put the concept into actual production.
Assiduous, precise and highly dextrous, they have turned the designers' proposals and models into beautiful shades over the years. The pleaters are still there today – because no machine can ever replace craftsmanship.
Classic, beautiful, practical
Great looking, elegant light. Apparently you can simply take it down to wash it in a sink too.
By: Nicholas M., Architect (Lincoln, MA, USA)
Beautiful on or off.
This is the second time I have bought this lamp for an entryway. I love it. It has an interesting yet unobtrusive beauty.
By: Morse, Homeowner (Lincoln, MA)
We love the light which is beautiful, stylish and provides good light for
our hallway. It installed uneventfully
WE should have done it long ago!
By: Iolanthe, Homeowner (Menlo Park California)
Beautiful modern pendant light
This pendant light is gorgeous and of excellent quality. I have two of them hanging in my living room/dining room spaces which are connected. They are beautiful to look at and complement my home's clean and modern esthetic perfectly. One thing I appreciate is that they aren't so flash that they are distracting. I would think this pendant lamp would go nicely with a variety of decor styles.
By: K.C., Homeowner (San Francisco)
This is a perennial favorite of mine!
This is a perennial favorite of mine with clients; it works well in spaces small and large, and is beautiful without being overly feminine.
By: Allison B., (SF, CA)
My client's child is terrified of this thing.
My client wanted somthing fanciful in his daughter's bedroom. This fit the bill and looks beautiful. Unfortunately his 2 year old daughter did not agree and kept pointing to it and screeming until it was taken down. Perhaps it will reappear in a couple of years when she is a bit older.
By: David S., Designer (New York)
Nice. But scary.
Very nice light but it scared my my client's 2 year old daughter and had to be taken down.
By: David S., Designer (New York)
I love this light!
This was the least expensive light that I ordered for my new home. I put it in the master bath stall but I love it so much that I could use it anywhere. It's a lot of design for not much money.
By: Court R., (Tracy, CA)
I dont usually purchase anything sight unseen, however once received there were no surprises either in quality, manufacture or looks. In fact i'm going to order another Le Klint
By: Jerald B., Homeowner (Sarasota, Fl.)
I recently bought a highrise condo in midtown Atlanta and the previous owner had installed an "antique" style chandelier in the master bedroom!? I replaced it with the Le Klint pendant fixture and it's absolutely stunning and it highly complements the rest of my ultra contemporary furnishings. Highly recommend it.
By: David A., Homeowner (Atlanta, GA)
Perfect pendant for the home/office. Great quality, gorgeous finish.
By: Crescent E., Designer (Arlington, WA)
LOVE the le Klimt.
It's gorgeous and works in a modern or traditional space. Beautifully made. I agree with previous reviewers that the installation instructions are too minimal and the bit that goes on the ceiling too plastic/cheap looking when you unpack it but it goes on fine.
By: Kim S., Homeowner (San Francisco)
Got this for my 9 year old daughter's bed room. She uses it with a blue light bulb and either way, whether you use with regular bulb or colored, it is a stunning piece. Easy to install. electrician did it in 10 minutes.
By: William V., Homeowner (Williamsburg, VA 23185)
this is my daughters lighting choice for her bedroom
I ordered the light as it is the light fixture our 8 year old daughter wanted very badly for her bedroom.I did not realize that there were choices in size. Therefore, I had to send back the light to exchange for a larger size as the one I did order was took small for her space.
The light was packed well and looked good but the directions for installation are very minimal;I am hoping my installer will know how to properly install this fixture once I buy the correct size.
By: Trish C., Homeowner (Westlake Village,Ca.)
A new light for our daughters bedroom
The light is fantastic;unfortunately I ordered it too small for the space we wanted to hang it in.I have returned the light I will re-order the fixture in a larger size. However,the included directions to hang the Le Klint were very brief and I do hope that my installers will not have an issue putting it in.
By: Glenn C.,
Great design, dubious quality, but I still love this fixture!
First delivery: the lamp had crimps/dents in the plastic, but ylighting was great in dealing with the exchange - no issues with them at all. But do inspect your lamp very carefully.
All of the reviews are straight on! No installation instructions, plastic, (cheap) materials, but when installed, the lamp is STUNNING. The top ceiling cone/cover is very cheap, and the small amount of info provided says that it will stay up on it's own, but it slides down a bit. There is a small hole to place a bolt or blunt screw to secure it, but nothing was provided to do so. This was my first hard-wire installation (with help from others), and I was able to successfully install it myself.
I wish that Illuminating Experiences (the manufacturer) would read these reviews about their product and would improve some of the materials and installation information.
By: MidCentFan, Homeowner (Virginia)
Fabulous. Iconic. Love.
I purchased Le Klint 172 for the guest suite of our country home. I love it and our guests all report a special feeling from living with great design.
By: Lara M., Homeowner (NYC)
Beautiful modern classic
The Le Klint Pendant 172 is simply a beautiful, unique piece of design, a real modern classic. At first a bit worried about the plastic feel, this pendant light just looks beautiful once installed.
By: Holger, Homeowner (Washington DC)
Great looking fixture. Easy to install and swag to where you need it. Gives off a ton of light with the 100 watt incandescent
By: William B., Homeowner (La crescent, ca, usa)
Iconic fixture, looks great in our home!
We were very pleased when the Le Klint arrived. It fit's perfectly in our home, and was easy to install. We were a little worried about the mounting canopy based on some of the other reviews, but in our home, the minimalistic cone looks great!
By: A. K., Designer (Raleigh, NC)
I absolutely love this pendant light. It looks amazing. I have it hanging in from the cathedral ceiling in my master bedroom. It is subtle yet adds texture to the space. The bulbs are easy to find, I highly recommend this product.
By: Ayiesha S., Homeowner (New York)
This lamp is gorgeous. I have wanted one for years and we finally pulled the trigger when YLighting had them on sale. We are building one of the few modern homes in Charleston, SC and it seemed fitting to have one of these over our dining room table.
By: Jon M., Homeowner (Charleston, SC)
The design of this light is perfectly elegant and the size is perfect for a hallway.
By: Jennifer H., Homeowner (Summit, nj 07901)
It's a great addition to our kitchen.
Love it even more when it's lit up.
By: Jee-in C., Homeowner (Novi, Michigan)
Cheap looking canopy and metal, but otherwise very pretty.
The conical canopy is a flimsy, cheap looking plastic and the wire that attaches to it at the top is equally cheap and tacky looking. One would expect something of a higher quality in terms of material and finishes for such an expensive fixture. The fixture itself is very pretty, but we ended up sending it back.
Adds zing to our powder room
We put this light in when we remodeled our small powder room. Most of the bathroom design is simple and modern so we wanted one or two elements that would pop. This light did the trick. It's also brighter than we had anticipated so we added a dimmer switch.
By: Michele S., Homeowner (New York)
Lights up the room perfectly and the design transcends the ages.
The Le klint Pendant fits perfectly in my loft and lights up the room in a way that transcends time and is ageless.
By: Kenneth C.,
I hung this lamp in my library/office as a central ceiling fixture. I was a little worried that it would not be suitable for this location, since most illustrations picture the light hanging much lower and used in more defined spaces. But I needn't have worried. I hung it about 14in. below our 9'5" ceiling and it looks stunning! And it looks simply beautiful as a foil for my books, maps, paintings, and Bertoia chairs. Even my husband is enchanted.
P.S. The electrician hooked it up in 2 minutes--no issues.
By: Ona D., (chicago IL)
Beautiful ,artisic addition to the room
had seen this product at Design Research but when ready
to buy, they no longer carried it. They gave me your web
By: Joan L., Homeowner (San Rafael CA)
Love it, it looks great in our space!
We purchased this pendant light for our daughter's nursery and it has worked out perfectly. It has a great minimal design and fits our space wonderfully.
By: Christina, Homeowner (Milwaukee, WI)
LOVE MY LE KLINT PENDANT
THE ORDERING PROCESS WAS VERY EASY AND STRAIGHTFORWARD. THE PENDANT ARRIVED IN A TIMELY MANNER AND IT WAS VERY WELL PACKAGED. WE INSTALLED TODAY IN UNDER 30 MINS. IT LOOKS AMAZING IN OUR NURSERY!
By: VERY PREGNANT, Designer
FAST SHIPMENT AND EASY TRANSACTION! LOOKS GREAT IN THE HOTEL LOBBY.
By: Nicole O., Designer (DENVER, CO)
Very cool fixture
Although the installation was a bit awkward, once we figured it out, the fixture was easy. It is a cool fixture, really works with both modern and ecletic interiors. It also gives off much more light that we thought which was perfect for this installation.
1. there was no installation sheet at all!
2. the fixture is not grounded! This is a serious issue as we had to ground a wire ourselves but there are likely many people who do not (given that there are no installation instructions) and that would be a a code violation.
By: Arlene A., Architect (Harison NY)
I have become a convert to modern style in lighting.
The Le Klint pendant arrived and is such a breath of fresh air and design in my kitchen. I have a pretty traditional kitchen and this light brings style without fighting anything else in the room.
By: Doreen L., Homeowner
looks pretty good.
the light is a bit smaller than it appeared, and the hardware is dismal, (ceiling cover plate is flimsy plastic rather than white painted metal). however overall it looks pretty good. it is obviously supposed to be contemporary, but there is cheap contemporary and elegant contemporary... this is not the later
By: Aldo B., Homeowner (Irvine CA)
A most satisfying purchase!
I was surprised at how easy the installation was after reading other reviews. I've tried the hanging globe on two lamps and it worked so well, I'm going to order two more. The Le Klint is strikingly beautiful lighted sculpture.
By: William M., (Vero Beach FL)
Brilliant design statement for your house.
We replaced our stairway fixture with this and are very happy. Had some problems getting the light working initially, but finally discovered that the fixture was bad. Ylighting was great and sent a new fixture right away--which worked perfectly. Very pleased!
By: David, Homeowner (San Antonio)
I LOVE IT!!!!
My husband and I purchased the Le Klint Pendant for our small entryway and it looks beautiful. We have it on a dimmer and it puts off the most beautiful light in the room. I love that it is the first thing that people see after they enter our house. I would recommend this light to anyone. Y lighting has been fabulous for many of our purchases and for returns. Their customer service is superb. I will make all of my future lighting purchases from Y lighting.
By: Leah W., Homeowner (Little Rock, AR,)
Love my Le Klink Pendant 172
We bought an old Victorian home and have a fairly dark, wood entry foyer. We bought the Le Klink Pendant 172 and it was very easy to install and brightened up the interior while giving it a modern feel.
By: AJS, Homeowner (Montclair, NJ)
The light is stunning and is the centerpiece of our kitchen. I get comments from everyone who sees it!
I LOVE IT!
I wanted this lamp for years and finally splurged on it. I think it's one of the most beautiful shades ever made.
What finally made up my mind was that the sales person at Ylighting told me the lamp could be modified from a built-in to a hanging lamp. That was the deciding factor - that and a good price.
By: caffreyc, Homeowner (santa rosa, ca)
Love the classic, modern curves
This is a great fixture that can either act as a focal point of a traditional room or blend in to contemporary surroundings. Very fun and somewhat affordable.
By: Whitney S., Architect (Mill Valley, CA)
I love it even more that I did when I saw it online!
Ylighting has been a great yet simple website to work with. Competitive pricing, easy to navigate, fast shipping etc. The product is beautiful. You can tell it is great quality. It is soft and feminine and it just glows. I love it! Thanks!
By: Leslie E., Homeowner (Kansas City, MO)
More than expected
I have wanted this light for a long time and finally rewarded myself and of course was sorry I had not done this sooner. The lamp hangs beautifully and gives a glow and ambiance to my kitchen that I wanted. Thank you. Job well done.
By: Piccolo, Homeowner (Pennsylvania)
The light gives not only a soft glow but is just a piece of art against any backdrop!
By: Alan N., Designer (St Louis, Missouri)
My husband and I ordered the Le Klint pendant for the nursery. It was between the Le Klint and the George Nelson saucer lamp and we are so pleased with the Le Klint! We added a dimmer to the light and it looks amazing! It sets off a beautiful soft glow that I think our baby will love. The directions were less than helpful with regard to how to install the light, but nothing we couldn't figure out on our own. Ylighting shipped the light immediately, which was fantastic because I feel as though everything I've ordered for the nursery takes 6-12 weeks. We will definitely order from ylighting again!
By: Victoria C., Homeowner (Denver, Colorado)
Fun and simple.
Our pendant arrived promptly and was easy to install. This was the finishing touch in my daughter's "big girl" room. Thanks.
By: Andrea P., Homeowner (Panama City Beach, FL)
Modern Simple Elegant
If you're looking for a soft and light sculptural element in your space, consider this fixture. The folded lines in the pendant add a femine feel to the fixture, yet maintaining the modern, clean-line design.
By: Grace H., Architect (San Francisco, CA)
Beautiful well made modern lighting!
This is a beautiful modern light! Product arrived quickly and well packaged. It was even better that YLighting offered the best price on the web. Thank You YLighting!
By: Hong N., Designer (Orange, CA)
We had been looking for a light to go in our hallway and never seemed to find the right one. This light is perfect. Cannot decide if we like it better on or off. It looks beautiful either way! We were also very pleased with YLighting's customer service.
By: Sandra, Homeowner (Raleigh NC)
Arrived quickly. Haven't installed it yet so don't know how easy it will be. But it looks lovely.
By: K.M., Homeowner (wdc)
Stunning and beautifully made
Arrived in perfect condition. Easy to install. Makes a great focal point in a relatively small room.
By: Jewel, Homeowner (Carol Stream,Il.)
Liked the Larger so much, I needed another
Perfect for any room of the house...this one is going in the library off the master bedroom.
By: Paul T., Homeowner (Washington DC)
Install was a little of a pain; the (lack of) instructions don't tell you anything you don't already know and in the end I just rigged it up my own way. Other reviews say it was easy so I guess it really just depends on your setup at home. But once up I'm glad I made the purchase.
By: LL, Homeowner (Orange County, CA)
Fast shipping, easy to install and it looks marvelous.
I am exceptionally happy with the product and the service.
By: Robert H., Homeowner (New York)
Dining Room Jewel
This fixture is everything I anticipated and more. Easy installation. Looks fabulous with my early 60's Danish modern dining room furniture!
By: Margaret P., Homeowner (Washington, DC)
Modern and fine design art
It's really pretty light with fine art. Really love the design
By: Xiaopeng L., Homeowner (San Diego, CA)
I love this light. It is beautiful both on and off. I thought I would like it prior to ordering it but was worried my family might think it was too modern - they all love it as well. This order, as well as all of my prior orders with YLighting, went very smoothly.
By: Kristen S., Homeowner (Wheaton, IL)
I think it's one of the coolest most beautiful things I've ever purchased. It gives me a lift every time I look at it!
By: Andra V., Homeowner
I originally had another designer pendant and gave it to my parents. This makes the room so romantic and modern at the same time.
By: Sharon T., Homeowner
The light is perfect for our beachfront apartment as it does not detract from the view. It is at the same timevintage and modern. The shape compliments the angles found so frequently in apartments. Lovely!
By: Susan M., Homeowner (FL)
We have a very traditional kitchen and i was worried this light might be a bit too modern, but it is perfect. It is a timeless piece that can go just about anywhere and it really warms the room.
By: Leanora B., Homeowner (Pittsburgh, PA)
Even cooler in person than on the web!
First things first - arrived speedily, in great condition and was as easy to install as advertised. I'm using it as a hall light and had wondered whether a fixture with a single 75W bulb would be bright enough, but it's just about perfect.
It is also even neater to look at than I'd guessed from the web pictures - it really is one, large folded sheet of plastic and, nose to nose, the effect of pleating is most apparent.
By: Margaret, (Washington, DC)
This light is a work of art!
I had a great overall experience with YLighting. I received online help with my lighting decisions. Ordering and delivery were easy and it shipped quickly and carefully. The light itself is just as beautiful as I was expecting. I think my only problem is trying to decide which room deserves to have it. I would definately recommend this light to anyone who is considering it.
By: Kim R., Homeowner (Prairie Village, KS)
I love the design. The quality, not so much.
Actually, as to the recent order of 2 LeKlint Pendants, the boxes are unopened pending someone to install them. HOwever, I had 2 similar LeKlints in my previous home. Some of the plastic pieces were bent - not noticeably so that I had to return them but, yet, I knew the folds were there. Another thing. I would prefer that they take a larger bulb than a 75 watt, but I like the looks of them so much that I put up with the lower wattage.
By: Joan L., Homeowner (Daytona Beach Shores, FL USA)
What do you get for a designer who doesn't want anything for the holidays, and poo-poos every attempt you make? A light fixture you know he wants (the Le Klint pendant 172). And YLighting's return policy was such a relief just in case he didn't want this either. (He loved it...no return necessary.)
By: harmony, Renter (New York)
Beautiful design. Simple and elegant. Only draw back is that it does seem fragile and may be quite difficult to clean, otherwise it would have been 5 stars.
By: Michael D., Renter (Ridgewood, NJ)
Very attractive fixture. Architecturally inspiring - we have this in our entrance way - looks great. No regrets.
By: Troy P., Architect (Chicago, IL)
Fabulous looking light; I love the look of it!
I put this light in the corner of the master bedroom, above a desk. It is the only hanging light in a large room, and it really makes the room, giving it just that extra bit of visual interest that it needed. It is a modern/wood and glass type decor, and the wavy round sculptural feel of this light is the perfect antidote to the angles and hard surfaces in the room. I will still need a small desk lamp, but I expected that to be the case.
By: Gigi B., Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA)
We love this fixture in our stairway. It is modern, classy, refined, just a little frilly, and it garners lots of compliments. We ran into a little trouble during installation, but YLighting had a replacement fixture cord/wiring to us quickly.
By: David D., Homeowner (Texas)
Le Klint Pendant 172 is an iconic shape that evokes nature
I bought a pair of these pendants knowing full well that they probably wouldn't match the decor of my kitchen, but I have been lusting after them for a long time. When I got them, I was just so happy to see them and hold them. But, indeed, they just didn't jive with the French country kitchen installed by the previous owners of my house. If I could, I'd rip out my kitchen just to have Le Klint grace my island. With great sadness, I shipped them back to YLighting, not even regretting the shipping and re-shipping fees. I had beheld Le Klint, and was that much happier for it.
By: Judith, Homeowner (Chicago)
The light was just hanged on the roof of our dining room.
It is so gorgous yet giving the cozy glow.
Sooooooo homey& Chic!
Absolutely fabulous buy!
By: Yali, Homeowner (Philly, PA)
Classic Danish Lighting
This is a great lamp at a great price!
It arrived very well packaged, on time, and in good condition. Nice job, you guys.
By: Andrew W., Homeowner
It's a great fixture- adds character to our family room.
At first we were a little skeptical about buying a PVC light fixture but it's a nicely designed and constructed product. It adds some interest in a relatively simple space and gives off plenty of light without a harsh hotspot. We are completely satisfied with it and have recommended it to others.
By: Brian P., Architect (Los Angeles, CA, USA)
Better than expected
This pendant is just what I wanted for our master bedroom. We had it put on a dimmer, which really enhances the light. It looks great on or off. It was bigger than I thought it would be, which was nice. Another plus is that we have it over our bed, and the bulb is not very visible from underneath.
By: Maureen V., Homeowner (Wakefield, RI)
Fast shipping, great product. Couldn't be happier.
By: vanessa l., Homeowner (Chicago)
I bought the Le Klint 172 for my dining room and it's great! I didn't want something large, so the size (about 13" diameter) is perfect. The aesthetics are great too. I haven't studied design, so to me it looks less "retro" and almost more "futuristic." Retro-futuristic, maybe?
The item itself, by the nature of what it is (shaped plastic sheeting with a metal wire infrastructure) seems a little delicate. But the item is well-made and does exude quality workmanship.
I'd say the best thing about the Le Klint 172 is the way that light from the bulb illuminates the form, giving definition to the curves in gradations of brightness that really look beautiful. On the downside, this pendant is a little on the pricey side, but I suppose there's a price for good design and quality construction!
By: FLH, Homeowner (Orange County, CA)
Cute but not perfect.
Love the look, but my electrician didn't love this fixture. We purchased it for over our baby's crib and our electrian had lots of concerns about the material - either catching on fire, melting or of the fixture itself falling off and landing on the baby. The clip that holds the cord to the lamp was very flimsy, so he used a piece of wire to fabricate something more sturdy and we used a "cool" bulb of a lesser wattage to avoid and fire safety concerns. I don't think I'd leave the light on all night as a nightlight, but overall we addressed the safety concerns and have a very cute fixture above our crib. This is much, much sturdier than the original pendant we bought from Pottery Barn Teen that my electrician said he would never put in his own house and he refused to attach it to the ceiling. At least the Le Klimt has a wire cage within the structure of the pouf, is UL listed and is a better material.
By: Baby K, Homeowner (Maryland)
The Klint Pendant is a great combination of simplicity and interest.
By: Audra C., Designer (New York, NY)
Wonderful price and service for this great pendant light
I purchased three of these pendants to cluster over my dining table. They arrived quickly, well-packaged, and in excellent condition. YLighting's customer service replied promptly when I had an installation question. Note: the pendants can only hang straight down from the junction box with the included hardware -- no swag hardware is included. YLighting had the best price by far on the web... The lights are stunning and provide a wonderful glow to our eating area. Overall, I am very pleased with the product and with YLighting.
By: Kristi, Homeowner (Ellicott City, MD USA)
We placed this in our entryway and it looks great. The light it gives off is lovely as well. I would highly recommend this fixture, especially if you want something that will add a little interest in a subtle way.
By: cambridge homeowner, Homeowner (cambridge, ma)
A PIECE OF ART.
As much as you pay attention to choice of countertop as important is lighting. Le Klint Pendent is truly what made our dining space come together. As a piece of art illuminating with it's curves and simplicity.
By: lonni s., Homeowner (San Diego)
After years of IKEA lighting, it was daunting to make the financial leap to Le Klint, but it was completely worth it! The lamp quality is excellent and the beauty of the design is apparent.
By: Joanne Y., Homeowner (Washington DC)
Great Looking Pendant. Lacked install directions and some hardware.
Great Pendant!! Looks awesome in the house. Lacked install instructions. It did come with some hardware but some of it didn't make sense so we had to rig it to hang. But if you are kinda handy it should be pretty simple to figure out a way to get it up.
By: Wes P., Homeowner (Denver, CO USA)
Very attractive pendant light.
I bought this light for my baby boy's nursery and I love it! My husband installed it quickly and easily. It arrived within three days and was much cheaper than if I had purchased it from DWR.
By: Tanya, Homeowner (Chicago,IL)
Le Klint pendants are the epitome of moderm classic lighting and I love the this pendant in my dining room!
By: kP, Homeowner (NJ, US)
I bought this and had to wait until road construction was over (didn't want to deal with all the dirt and dust on the all the lovely crevices). the electrician was really amused by the instructions, and thought I was nutz buying a plastic lamp. Then I turned it on. It's like a piece of sculpture hanging from the ceiling. He was amazed--he took down the name (and ylighting's email) cause he was so surprised. Its an organic sculptural piece and looks perfect over my dining room table. Everyone who sees it is in awe of the piece. I love the artichoke and Helios pendants, but a little out of my price range, so it was between a Nelson and Le klint, so glad I bought Le klint 172--- the service was wonderful--directions were lousy.
By: icyicybaby, Homeowner (Portland <E)
amazing modern fixture, love it!
I love this pendant! it looks fabulous in my den. since we only have 8' ceilings, we have ours hanging only a few inches from the ceiling, and it still looks great! its the focal point of the room, without screaming out for too much attention.
By: Lindsay, Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA, USA)
Absolutely marvelous...I have very strong positive feelings for this beautiful and reasonably priced light!
My husband and I bought this light for above our kitchen table as we are slowing bringing our house into the 21st century. It looks fantastic hanging up and I love the light that it gives off.
My only complaint is that although we figured out how to install the light, we thought the directions could have been a little clearer as they were pretty short.
By: Bradley D., Homeowner (Houston TX)
Best light ever!
I am so Happy with this light! Installation was very easy and it was packaged very carefully. I recommend installation of a dimmer-switch to enhance the aesthetics of this wonderful light. Dimming the light adds a little extra something to it's beauty. I couldn't be more happy with it. This was my first purchase from Y-Lighting, I'll be back!
By: Jeremy R., Homeowner (Chattanooga, TN)
Although it did not arrive as quickly as other customers raved, I still received this gorgeous light within 2 weeks and love the fluid lines. Uncertain as to whether it is large enough over a 47" Saarinen table though... I thought the 16" size would be plenty big but I might need a Nelson bubble to fill the space. Overall, lovely light that I will definitely keep, just maybe relocate to a bedroom or smaller space than kitchen nook.
By: n.root, Homeowner (Happy Valley, OR)
Fast shipping, nice package and good price.
I like this light very much and look great in my piano room.
By: Dottydot, (Big Apple City)
This beautiful pendant is easy to install, easy to clean and priced just right. We love it!
By: HCC, Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA)
The service was great and I love the lite. Wish you would ship free to Hawaii as we have "ground" shipping here also. Thanks and aloha.
By: Mike, Homeowner (Honolulu)
It is a gorgeous light and a work of art; it is the focal point of my bedroom.
I was impressed with the careful and thorough packaging the light came in. It arrived quickly within about three days. My brother was able to install it without any difficulty. I have a dimmer with remote for it; I love being able to adjust the lighting depending on whether I am writing or reading or if I want alittle soft light prior to going to sleep. I love the look of this particular light; it is a modern, clean piece which is art to me. The price was a bargain! No shipping costs and tax were also a bonus. Thank you! -Christine
By: Christine S., Homeowner (Columbus, Ohio)
Classic design form and function all in one.
So easy dealing with Y Lighting. The fixture is perfect for our hall entry and sets the tone for the whole apartment. Clean and modern

I wanted a modern element to my daughter's room and this light did the trick. It's perfect. Just like the classic.
Shipping was quick and Ylighting is easily to work with. This will be my go to lighting website in the future.

Nice lamp for the money
Saw this at Design "Within" Reach (yeah, right) for several hundred dollars more. Good price here. We love the lamp.

It arrived as described...although I am surprised by how light it is. Great service. No complaints... happy with product.

I work at a design firm and we are actually using the Le Klint Pendant 172 on the set of a game show. It looks truly fantastic - lit and unlit. The contours and shape of the light are soft and have a great finish, somewhere between matte and glossy. Definitely recommend it!

Eye-catching Modern Piece
We saw this pendant in a modern home and it caught our attention right away. It is simple yet unique. It is like a piece of artwork in your home. We ordered the pendant from Ylighting because they had the best price and their service has been outstanding.

Just what I wanted!
I happened to be surfing and came across this chandelier and fell in love, ordered it and received it three days later! How is that for service! The chandelier absolutely lived up to my expectations. I would do business with YLighting again. BEAUTIFUL

Fabulous 50s glamour revival
The Le Klint was easy to install and now is beautifully a part of my home. Admired the look in the magazines for years and now affordable, quick shipment. Just love it.

simple, elegant- just right.
the smaller size was perfect for a standard breakfest area-table.
looks great in the daytime, but glows in the evening- my clients love it.
perfect simple fixture.

Beautiful but hard to keep clean
I admired this lamp for years when I lived in Denmark, and so I was very glad to purchase it for use over my dining table, where it sheds a rather beautiful light. It is, however, difficult to clean. Dust has to be carefully brushed off each curve using a paintbrush, and the dust (and the occasional dead fly) that collects on the interior is nearly impossible to remove wel, and shows up when the lamp is lit. Plus, should anyone attempt this cleaning without proper delicacy and care, the plastic coated paper dings very easily and doesn't come back to perfect shape.

We love our Le Klint 172, its classy sophisticated line, the light texture through its folding lines. We ne regret pas our choice.

The light came packaged well; it was easy to install and is sturdier than I thought. It looks great even when it's not illuminated. For the price I think it's a great value.

We love this light, it looks great and the price was right!
The Le Klint pendant is fabulous! It looks so great in the small bedroom we put it in, really makes the room. The lines and the size are great and the amount of light it emits is perfect.

We love the clean design of this light, its subtle, yet interesting and very afordable. Thank you

Absolutely beautiful lamp. Everyone who sees it comments on how cool it is. I love design classics and this certainly is one.

Fantastic product but used by pinkberry
Bought Le Klint Pendant 172. Excellent product and gives off great soft white light, works especially well with a dimmer. However, if you are near a Pinkberry yogurt store watch out -they have the same product in all their stores!

It is unique and provides a distinct accent to the space.
I really like the light fixture. It is functional and well designed. It is unique looking and provides an appropriate focal point to the conference room of our new office.

How to get your friends to say "wow"
Love this pendant lamp. On a dimmer, it appears in a full range from full moon to shimmering orb. Very cool looks - an instant conversation piece. Folds do get dusty, so you'll have dust regularly. And bugs die inside (nasty little corpses lying above my dinner table). Overall I'm very pleased.
