pretty fixture. we mounted it on the mirror and due to that it doesn't have this 'radiating star' effect as it does on the wall (since light reflects off the mirror). thus best application would be a wall or ceiling. it is an ambient light lamp therefore can be used as an accent lighting vs. main light source. it is surprisingly very heavy fixture.
I love, love, love the Anenome Sconse! I bought 2 of them as fictures for my hallway & I was more then pleased with the way they look. They caste the most beautiful shadows on the wall & have so much personality! I have recieved so many compliments on their orginality.

We weren't certain how this would look until we hung it and it is awesome! We had a big dinner party and the whole crowd discussed how beautiful it is and that no one had ever seen anything quite like it. I wish I had more places to hang other ones. Ultra modern and chic!

This fixture casts very cool light patterns off the ceiling. Given how hard it is to find a pretty flush ceiling light, we were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it looked when installed. The only drawback is difficulty in installation....best to have 2 people, one person to hold the fixture while the other one handles screwdriver. Amazing design and quality for the price!!

the light is well made, and solid. it is nicely proportioned, and give a great shadow of 'spidery' lines on the ceiling. I used it for my teen's bedroom, and she loves it. the style is modern, but I think it would work with a myriad of room designs.

Saw this in design store in town and was thrilled to find I could get it for less at Y Lighting. Looks great as it casts shadows against wall

It is very heavy making it somewhat difficult to install;Light is very dramatic;
Bulbs are not great, would recommend replacing them with better quality, similar bulbs.

This is a fantastic light that is perfect for an entryway, bathroom (where I use it), or any place for a unique ambient light. It came packed beautifully and, though a tad heavy, I was able to easily install myself. Great buy, great company!

I have suggested this design to my clients for years but no-one bought it. I finally bought 2 for myself and put on my hallway ceiling.

I purchased this fixture to hang above the vanity mirror in a guest powder room.
The small room will be painted dark gray so I felt it needed a pop with the lighting. I was nervous about the Anemone because the style is a bit "out there".
I could not have been more pleased! The Anemone is a beautiful fixture and is very substantial. It weighs almost 10 pounds and is very well constructed. This gives this unusual fixture great credibility. I love it!!

Have used this light in two different projects and it does not disappoint. It is flirty, yet gets the job done. Suggest using a dimmer.

This fixture casts beautiful, but dim light. Its form makes it a focal point for the room.
Very difficult to install due to its weight, shape and the short length of the screws. We eventually hired a professional who had the right equipment and expertise to install it.
