I would like to see the globe fit just a little closer to the wall and it needs mounting screw holes for three inch round electrical boxes.

Simple elemental design that is well proportioned in this size. Nice even diffusion of light.

While the look of this product is lovely, removing the glass casing to change lightbulbs is extremely difficult. Although the metal bezel is barely visible it would feel more contemporary if it were offered in another finish besides white.

The best inconspicuous ceiling mounted fixture with excellent light using either incandescent or fluorescent bulbs I have found. I have used in an upscale NYC apartment as well as a house in the woods in the countryside.

I put this in two bathrooms and so far it looks good and gives great light.

I bought 6 of these fixtures for my closet, laundry room and bathroom. They work great in all locations and I have them on dimmers which makes them really versitle. at low levels they produce a nice warm orange glow. At full brightness a good clean white light. I lilke the white glass too, diffuses the light well enough that you can't see the lightbulbs.

The quality of the light is beautiful. The glass is very hight quality and the fixture looks like it floats on the ceiling. The style works with both modern and traditional decor... I highly recommend this product.

The Jesolo fixture has clean lines, and is attractive and easy to install. I live in a 100 year old house with contemporary furniture, and this light blends perfectly with both. I used it in the dining room.

Subtle, blends in with environment, yet elegant and casts a nice light.

I had been looking endlessly for two hanging lamps for an 1820's house we are restoring/rehabbing to live in. Our design philosophy? Anything that looks old is original to the property and the rest is uncomplicated modern. The hanging lamps in question needed to look modern but not obtrusive, and we wanted the light to expose the walls and ceiling in an open hallway with cathedral ceiling.
The search was well worth it when the Propeller lamp appeared on my computer screen. It is large but has an extremely soft quality. Its unusual geometric shape picks up surrounding lights differently and blends in beautifully, almost mystically, with our warm off white walls and ceiling paint. Since it can use up to an 150 watt bulb, the light is excellent and is distributed well. We are thrilled.
Sadly, the prices for the Nelson lamps went down a week or so after our purchase of two of them (see Ball lamp). But this is good for you!
We needed ceiling lamps for a small vestiule and a 1st floor bathroom. This ceiling lamp remained in the number 1 slot during my long search for lighting fixture for a new house. The light is distributed well in the small spaces and a bit of distance from the ceiling is welcome.
A definite recommend and they come is various sizes for one's needs.

I was looking for a modern surface mounted ceiling light that was elegant, timeless and cost effective. The Jesolo light fit the bill perfectly.
It is unobtrusive while providing a significant amount of lumens of light for its size. The quality and finish are excellent and it is easy to take off
the glass housing to change bulbs. Kudos to the designer and manufacturer for producing such a fine product.

attractive, simple lighting is hard to find. this fixture is simple yet elegant. doesn't look cheap like others we looked at.

I have these ceiling fixtures throughout my house. I love their clean style. The glass reminds me of a cloud. One of my glass fixtures fell and shattered when I didn't reattach it carefully enough after cleaning. YLighting told me it would be less expensive to order the entire fixture than just the glass alone. Even though the (ceiling) part had been redesigned, the glass was the same and fit neatly into the fixture I already had. I would have given this fixture 5 stars if the ceiling part hadn't changed because I prefer the old polished brass finish and it would have been nice to have a spare!

Clean , modern look that provides great lighting. A breeze to install
By:Robert P. , Homeowner (NY)
I found this a little hard to instal the glass because the screws are so close to the ceiling. It is important not to tighten the screws too much as there is a danger of breaking the glass if screws too tights. I found the two 40 W lights not quite bright enough in my rooms even though the rooms are fairly small. They look very elegant in any case.

I bought three Janeiro ceiling lights for the two small adjacent hall ways in my new condo and add dimmers to them. They look amazingly beautiful together and give my place a very warm ambience. I love them !

This fixture enhances the clean look of modern lighting with warmth and style.

This is the best light style and price wise. It looks modern and chic without breaking the bank! Quality and style for a reasonable price. Love it and will replacing remaining hall fixture with this light.

If you're looking for a great value and a simple, clean, modern design, you can't go wrong with this fixture. I've used these many times both as wall and ceiling fixtures and have always been very happy. Nice light...also, you can't see the bulb through the globe which I've found to be a problem in similar but more expensive fixtures.
