The Random Light is an absolute winner on all accounts. It's gorgeous, it's not fragile, it's abstract and yet so simple. It is everything rolled into one perfect ball.

It is worth it to spend the money for this light. I purchased one of each size in black, and they are absolutely breathtaking. They are abstract and whimsical but substantial as well. And when lit up, I haven't seen any large scale pendant yet that is as cool as this fixture.

After looking at this pendant in several magazines for the past couple of years, I decided to go ahead and splurge on this pendant. I was very pleased at the packaging. The lamp was delivered on a crate by UPS Freight. The lamp was easy to install and looks beautiful in my dining room. I did change the bulb to a frosted one to prevent glare above the dining room table but otherwise, I am very happy that I purchased. The only problem is that it now makes my foyer light look meek and therefore this now has to be replaced.

The Random Light is dramatic and elegant in our bedroom. It casts amazing shadows at night, particularly when dimmed. It was easy to install and is a good size.

Easy to install and a lot of look in a very simple package.

The Random Light is so beautiful when lit at night, it looks magical! It is a lot of money for what it really is, but the look is so spectacular, it's worth it. The shipping was very professional, at one point there was a problem with the freight train the light was comming on, but UPS kept me informed, by phone, on the change in delivery.
My only complaint would be the instructions, they were simply a piece of paper with pictures only, no written instructions. My husband is a contractor, and it took him a while to figure them out, but he did. It's just for this amout of money, any instructions should be very clear.

This light is even cooler than it looks online and in print. We have it hanging in a massive stairway with 20 ft high ceilings and it looks like a piece of art. We were contemplating hanging art on the wall behind it but this IS art. It was also very easy to install by our electrician and is very light. We love it in black against our white walls.

The Random Light is a shining example of good design and good function in a singularly original light. Because of this, it will never be "out of style".

Such a simple pendant light but the overall effect is so dramatic.

Y Lighting delivered the light very quickly and it was packaged well so it did not get damaged! 5 stars!
Light arrived by UPS freight in a huge box with what seemed like adequate protection, but the light had a big indentation in the bottom. Luckily, it popped out with mild pressure with no residual defects. It was very easy to install and the light pattern it casts on the walls is just awesome. The lights are much larger than you realize and I'm glad I chose the medium over the large for my purpose. Highly recommended.

Beautiful light and design. Every time I go into the room I look up and admire. Infinitely interesting addition to the room.

This is a beautiful light fixture. It's simple yet it makes a statement. I hung it from my 21ft ceilings and it's pretty cool looking up and having a big sphere up there. I ordered the large version so it was pretty challenging getting this 41" fixture through my 36" door opening. I had to carefully depress one side and then pop it back out after I got it through. It's pretty well constructed but it's nothing more than a ball and a light socket. Seems like it could be priced a little bit more affordably. I ended up buying a 14W CFL globe so I won't have to worry about renting scaffolding and replacing the bulb for at least a few years. The install process was pretty straight forward. The only snag I had was that the mounting bracket didn't line up to my standard 4" electrical box. I ended up modifying the 90degree bend into a 45 degree bend and everything hooked up perfectly after that. The light it puts out is beautiful and the intertwined design creates a great effect on your walls. It's a great light to create some romantic ambiance.

The light gives a nice amount of lighting and looks so pretty.

I bought the black version for my dinning room, which has a maple table, white chairs with black legs, white walls, and art on the walls. Looks stunning. One thing to consider -- the light is so dramatic that it competes with other pieces in the room. We had to simplify the room a bit before it "accepted" the light. The light comes with a long, long wire, which you might have to shorten depending on how big your light box is and how low you're hanging it. I purchased a dimmable soft white LED light (Cree from Home Depot) that gives out 1600 lumens using only 18 watts.
