This looks good as a show piece and it looks different from every angle. I watched people keep on looking around it cause the flow of the wood makes your eyes travel around the lamp. Its unique and quite edgy but the cherry wood grain adds a sense of warmth and welcomes the visitor.
The actual material was not what I fully expected. The wood veneer is very thin, almost flimsy to touch. And the Cherry veneer was very light in color. The color was between the Beech and Cherry color. I was expecting it to be darker, like the online swatches, to complement the walnut flooring. I called the distributor and was told that since its natural wood, it will have a variation in color.

nice fixture but pricey
This is a beautiful modern light that we put in our stairway. It's organic shape really creates a hanging work of art. It does not give off much light. So, if you need it to illuminate an area, beware that very little light is given off. However, if you want a stunning light fixture to add a contemporary feel to your space, this light is great!

The cherry color is warm and inviting. Perfect for bringing a glow to a dining room in a modern home.

The only "issue" i have with this product is that I purchased it online and the color sample shown online is not consistent with the actual color of the fixture. The photo of the item showed it as a more white finish, while the color of the sample showed it as more cream. It is actually neither of those colors, but somewhere inbetween. I wish there could be more true representation of the color.

Our architects Sunny and Jon created an incredible design for our Kitchen and Dinning room. Barbara, the construction supervisor sweated the ALL details of making it happen while keeping us comfortable in other parts of the house.
Amongst the 1000ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™s of decisions required before the project was completed one had not been made: the dinning room fixture.
As the rooms were completed and we could see and feel the space, the YLighting web site became invaluable for comparing and discussing products. It brought a great collection of the finest fixtures to our dinning room table laptop computer were we could discuss them casually and in the space where they would eventually live.
In the end, we chose the LZF knot, and purchased at the best price possible. This dynamic fixture does not define the space but fully compliments the design.
Great post sales service from the Ylighting staff. IÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™ve recommended them to everyone who needs to know where we found this fixture.
It is worth keeping in mind that not all hand crafted fixtures can come off a shelf and ship the day the are ordered. Our fixture was made in Spain. Shipping took a few weeks but to get the exact color and style was well worth the wait. The YLighting staff kept us fully informed as we waited our delivery.

I purchased the Link Suspension Light - Large. I selected this light to hang above my dining room table. I spoke with the customer service agent in advance of ordering and I'm glad that I did. He steered me toward the more natural stained woods instead of colored tints, as a more formal look versus fun. I received the light from Italy and it's gorgeous. While I haven't yet hung it, because it requires an electrician, I am very happy with this purchase!

This light is great for the money. One note of caution, it was a bit smaller than I thought it would be from the photo, and rests very flush to the ceiling, so it doesn't work as well in rooms with bigger ceiling heights. We ended up changing the room we ultimately put it in because of this fact. Love the way the light looks and the quality for the money!

If you don't want the average ho hum dining fixture, this one is a conversation piece. It isn't very bright but instead provides mood lighting. The wood veneer look is very warm.
By:Chefmanns , Designer (denver)
We wanted a unique dining table light that had a soft ambient light for dining. We have a very contemporary and zen decor and this fits perfectly. If you need bright light, this is not for you as it is only 1-100watt bulb and the veneer cast nice shadows of light.

We LOVE our red link suspension lamp! The lighting isn't the brightest, but gives off a warm gorgeous glow. Gotten lots and lots of compliments on it. Everyone who's been to our apt is amazed by its beauty. We're so happy we decided to purchase this lamp!

We purchased this light to hang above our kitchen table and we love it. The organic shape softens our modern home. The cherry finish is not red and actually more of a medium brown.
By:Amy G. , Homeowner (Paradise Valley, AZ)
The lamp is a good fit with more traditional furniture and more contemporary pieces. It is a perfect dining room lamp for us because it helps give the room an uncluttered, yet complete feel.

We got the yellow large version. Very contemporary with a warm look. It looks beautiful above our dining table

The quality of the product is beyond my expectation , highly recomend.

The design is unbeliveable beautiful
By:Jeff C. (Oakland)
We are doing a total renovation of a large part of our house including relocating our kitchen. The focal point of the kitchen is a large island and accordingly, the lighting above it is of primary importance.
When our designer recommended the suspension lights we thought they looked beautiful and interesting in the photos; however, the photos don't do justice to the real thing. They are, in a word, stunning.
By:Suzi E. , Homeowner (dallas tx)
The pictures dont do it justice, this light is sculptural, organic and looks like ribbons of light when lit up.
Y-lighting shipped it quickly and safely, I would highly recommend this product and this company.

Ordered 2 for a restaurant design project. The red finish makes a bold statement.
By:H.S. , Architect (NYC)
We considered so many options and finally decided on this, and are so pleased. It is a perfect balance of craft, object, form, function. The actual material is quite pliable and very lightweight, we were expecting it to be more solid. But the translucence therefore is magical and it gives off a very lovely light.
By:Loftdweller , Homeowner (New York)
Stunning pendant light. Beautifully floats in the space -- visitors take notice. More atmospheric glow than strong direct light. Love the organic feel of it. Perfect with our interior design.
By:LonCal , Homeowner (California)
This was the big splurge for a dining room. We think it will make the room. Great color and interesting form!
By:Link L. , Homeowner (Seattle, WA)
It is a gorgeous light. It does look like an infinite loop of white ribbon. The material is a wood veneer but it does feel like plastic - which I think is good because that means it is durable and treatable.
I did see the smallest version of this lamp hung in succession when visiting an extremely prominent tech company in their lounge. That effect was stunning too. There were five hung above a lounge high bar top area.
I used this fixture in a clients home, in a girls' room and its looks amazing! Its almost like art. And the orange color is beautiful

This super modern chandelier is absolutely gorgeous and casts a very warm glow. I love it because it is very contemporary but doesn't have a synthetic or cold feel at all.
By:renovation survivor , Homeowner (NYC)
This is a beautiful light, we love ours, and actually purchased the version in Nut as well because it is so lovely. They make a really pretty set and we hope to keep collecting!

Beautiful product. Would recommend it 100%
By:Shokofeh T. , Homeowner (Mercer Island, WA)
Gorgeous in gray! Very dramatic, gives off a nice glow.
By:Anonymous , Homeowner (Boston)
The pictures do not do this light justice- it is a truly unique modern piece (we got the grey one) which has the perfect balance of modern and organic elements. The shape allows it to emit a very warm glow of functional light without being overpowering. We love it for the bedroom!
By:Kenneth C. , Homeowner (New York City)
The Link Suspension Light (Large) is the perfect centerpiece in our guest cottage. The open plan space allows the light to be centered and viewed from all angles, so when guests first enter the space they are "wowed" by the light. It creates an interesting and warm work of art that ties the rooms together. Considering purchasing one of the other Link family members.
By:LonCal , Homeowner (Calistoga CA)
We ordered the large Link Suspension in orange to hang above the dining room table in our remodeled mid Century Modern home. Its impact cannot be overstated; the amazing fluid shape, the rich color. It's one of the first design pieces our guests see when they enter, and it sets the perfect tone.
When we first opened the box, we had a brief panic as the orange seemed much brighter than we anticipated, but once hung and lit, it is as warm and lush as we hoped.
