Infinitely adjustable and great looking - classic and classy. I've got two of them on my ceiling and am ordering more. My only suggestion for improvement is to add more holes to the base plate; the 3 1/2" spread for the mounting screws didn't work with the 3" boxes in my ceiling, but the problem was easily solved by drilling a new hole in the baseplate.

A very handsome light fixture. I bought three of them, and they look sharp. Should mention that these appear to be retrofit, without the built in switch. There is still a spot where the switch would have been located, but it is covered with a small flat insert. The lines are not smooth there, and it is a bit confusing at first, but has no effect on function.
I like these lights a lot. Well made, interesting design, practical.

The Fortebraccio is really a handsome task light. I have installed it in my kitchen, over my sink, and although the manufacturer recommends a common light bulb, I installed a 50W halogen flood. The light is clean, crisp, and illuminates beautifully.
The only problem I encountered, is that I could not get the base or the light to mount absolutely flush to the wall. Perhaps it is the configuration of my existing hex-box that is the problem. Anyhow, a small amount of caulking fixex the problem.

Got these spots to replace some ornate sconces over a fireplace, seeking an alternative to the ubiquitous Tolomeo. Unfortunately, while the body shape is cool, the silver-finished polycarbonate looked too cheap at just above eye level. Residentially, these would be okay as a high ceiling mount used as true spots, or better yet used commercially in a very large space. Lesson learned.

I bought three of these to hang above my sliding closet doors. Not only can I now see my clothes, but I also have great lighting for my bedroom.
