Light has a way of transforming this pendant. It's sculptural and lively enough during the day, but when the light comes on at night, its curves are fully activated. The panels recede and come forward with warm light and even warmer shadows. We were choosing between this loopy lamp and an austere cylinder-style pendant. I was nervous to hang something so complex, thinking it would look busy and grow tiresome, but it's surprisingly soothing on the eyes, like a mobius strip.
The only downside: the fastening grommets are made of an ugly (white plastic?) material. I wish they were more invisible as they interrupt the smooth flow of the curved strips a bit. These could have been better integrated with the bent wood color (I have the cherry version -- don't know about the other colors). This is a minor complaint.

Okay, I have not installed this fixture, but I purchased it largely on the basis of the deep cherry color I saw in the on site photo of the woman in her art studio.
Well, it arrived today,and the color is - uh, tan. Okay, maybe dark tan. And I'm certain that it will be more attractive when light hits it, but there is no reason to have such a misleading photo. There is no way this thing will assume a deep, rich, cherry color.

Taking the product out of the box, you don't realize how beautiful it looks when lit. The veneer really shows the texture of the wood.
Definitely a great purchase

I got this fixture in the white for my foyer. It looks skimpy and cheap. I'm sending it back.

I ordered the beech wood and although it has a little more of a yellow tint than the picture, it is still gorgeous. Its bold yet unobtrusive. A wonderful conversation piece.

Ordered in White, for a contemorary house with lots of wood - looks great & everyone admires it

The wood grain panels woven around the center of the light is organic and beautiful. The shipyard/nautical photo on the manufacturer homepage sold us on the fixture. Elegant light. We installed a dimmer so it serves as an ornate night light as well.

- The fixture arrived well packaged/protected
- It looked as good as it did on the website
- Instructions are minimal
- Difficult to pull the wiring through the plastic sheaths that protect it from the metal parts of the fixture

Warm and lovely light complement the wood texture on this product. Red was our choice. Which ended up giving more drama to the room. Perfect for that West Coast contemporary look.

After looking for a while for a pendant fixture for a master bedroom for a new modern home I am building, the Link Suspension fixture is the perfect choice. Even though I have not installed it yet, it looks beautiful, the soft curves and wood finish give it a very architectural look. Made in Spain, the quality also also very good.

I took a risk in buying this lamp because I have a arc lamp in my living room with a very basic drum shade that needed something organic and exciting. I purchased the link suspension lamp and removed the shade and attached it to the arc lamp creating exactly what the space needed. Pics to follow!

This was the piece I was looking for forever. It took me a while to get it hung, I needed an electrician. When lit, this light is stunning. The only thing I might need to do is get a softer bulb as the light can sometimes glare through the openings. It is unique and really lovely

This lamp exceeded my expectations. The proportions and flow of the wood veneer are beautiful. It is elegant and understated but so visually powerful. So much so that I purchased a the Linkchain LK3 Suspension as the real wow factor. Was a budget buster but everyone will remember these lights! Already gave website out to first two people who saw this one.

The light fixture is still in the box as the kitchen renovation has only just started but it arrived way sooner than expected and it looks just like the photo on the website. Can't wait to have it hanging over my new kitchen table although not sure how the wire cable will look.

No assembly needed - just installation. It is very beautiful and cool looking. My only comment would be that I would have liked it just a bit brighter but I don't want to up the wattage of the bulb for fear of ruining the fixture. All in all..great product.

This lamp is my favorite thing in the house. The small size is perfect for over the dining room table. Installation was simple, and the height is easy to adjust.
The cherry finish is light brown and slightly dull when the lamp is turned off, but when turned on, it comes alive: it glows deep red/orange/brown and you can see the grain of the veneers beautifully. It's so delicate and airy, it gives the impression of being weightless. Against the navy walls of my dining room it looks stunning.
Every time I walk past the lamp I'm blown away by how drop-dead gorgeous it is.
I purchased small pendant for master bathroom that is still under renovation, so it is still not hung up yet, but I love how it looks, just gorgeous and well constructed. It matches with my other contemporary setting, just great. Highly recommend.

This light is a lot of bang for the buck. It's beautiful & modern & way less expensive than the next size up.

A beautiful, organic feel to this natural wood suspension light gives a warm, natural vibe--not to mention style!--to any room.
The lamp is gorgeous both lit and unlit, revealing different colors and nuances of the wood in each.

Overall design and quality are good. A few of the plastic components could be upgraded so as to perform better, and be more complementary to the overall design.

We ordered this light fixture for a small dining area in our Mid-Century Modern mountain home and love it. The quality of the light is appropriate for a residential interior: warm yet bright enough to illuminate our dining table below. The fixture is not only a source of light but also an impressive piece of suspended sculpture in our house.

Purchased this orange fixture to brighten up the kitchen and be a focal point. Met all requirements and looks terrific

I love my Lzu lamp and was pleased and appreciative of the easy and efficient service I received from YLighing. Thank You.
By:Martha D. , Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA)
We just installed this light in white in our breakfast nook. It looks beautiful. It was installed by electricians about a week ago, so I can't comment on ease of installation or durability. It is a gorgeous fixture though, and looks great both when lit and off. I would definitely recommend this light, as well as the service at Y Lighting.
By:E.K. , Homeowner (Decatur, GA)
This light works perfectly over a contemporary breakfast nook... and Customer Service from YLighting was top notch.

We purchased this light for our dining room. I looked online for over a month for the right fixture for us. Our design style is eclectic. We like to combine modern pieces with antiques and other interesting pieces. We purchased the gray Link Suspension Light to match our gray venetian plaster walls. The style is modern, but the wood veneer gives it a natural look. Love light!
By:M.B. , Homeowner (Ojai, CA, USA)
The only issue with this light is the color description does'nt exactly match the color. We ordered american white, but it's not really white.
This is an absolutely gorgeous light. The graceful curves are very soothing to look at. It makes a statement but in a serene, not overpowering, way.
The only slight negative is that it does not come with a diffuser and so if look up at it from directly below (we have it hanging in an entryway) you get blinded by the bright light bulb.
By:Simone , Homeowner
This is a truly beautiful art object as much as a practical solution to our lighting needs (over dining table). It is simultaneously a source of warm radiance in our open design space and a phantasmic allurer of gazes: friends (and we ourselves) are constantly caught and enamored by the design's simple yet richly evocative continuity of flowing wood veneer (Mobius strip multiplied). It is easy to install and we are using a dimmable G25 LED medium base (light takes on wonderful qualities at different settings of illumination). The American White is not true white but more toward a very light beige or cream color (this works with our decor but should be aware of this difference compared to images online which appear bright white). Thumbs up to Ray Power/LZF Design in terms of concept, quality, execution. Your company's price was the best and worth every penny!
