This is a great fixture at a great price. It's wonderful to get good design without having to pay thousands of bucaroos!

The light's size and modern aethetic is what really appealed to me. However, the amount of light it gives off as really sold me! Clean lines and useful! It doesn't get much better than that!

We did a master bath renovation, using these lights to frame the mirrors. I ordered four of the 50" HO. All four burned out the bulbs in a couple of weeks. I changed all the bulbs. All burned out again. Ylighting was responsive and got the manufacturer to replace all four. One of the new ones burned out the bulb quickly, too. Got it replaced. Now a second one of the new batch is also burning out and the previously replaced one is, too. The manufacturer has said it will not replace any more. Our whole bathroom design is dependent on these fixtures. What a mess.

It looks great in our powder room. It took a while to get it, but was worth the wait.

This fixture is functional and modern, perfect for a bathroom that is restricted on space.

I had hoped to recess these lights so the front face would appear flush with the wall. Because the box that covers the wiring is wider than the lights, the recessed "alcove" that the lights are set in has about a one inch gap on either side of the fixture. While not what I had intended, it looks good because the lights themselves are so nice. Good value for the money.

This fixture looks very nice in our bathroom remodel. The only problem is that the paint at each end of the fixture scratches very easily, or at least that's what our contractor says ;).

These lamps along with others designed by Rezek are great. What an absolute shame and pity that the benefits of good design (agree that it doesn't mean stark white rooms!) are denied to most people because of the ridiculous pricing.
I don't think anyone would object to paying a royalty to the designer, but by the time you've gone from manufacturer through several layers of zero valued added "representatives and distributors" (each marking up the product along the way), great product is only available to those who can pay the very high prices.
Compare these well-designed and well-built lamps to the trash one is normally confronted with when paying a visit to a home improvement store or even worse, a lighting showroom. Its a pity that good design is perceived as something exclusive and pricey. Great design - simplicity and elegance - can lift the spirits - and that should be available to far more people than is the case today.

This light is really a nice minimalistic design and it provides great light. Excellent purchase.

I liked he look of these lights so ordered them. When they arrived they were
even better looking in "person". I had a professional do the installation so I can't comment on that aspect. I bought the high output ones so the bulbs are a bit expensive, but I still can recommend them.

I purchased this one based on the opinion of my architect. Nice clean design - looks very cool, but the lighting is very dim and does not light my small 40 sq ft bath at all. The bulbs are also very pricey. Anyone want a lightly used light fixture?
By:Jane , Homeowner (Seattle)
I have not installed these yet so can update after install. The light appears to be nice quality. I wish the actual light went all the way to the end, I don't like that there is a light-less metal end. I bought two to put side by side above the mirror and want it to be one continuous block of light. I'm not really sure how these will look

The 2 square strip wall light is a solidly constructed fixture. It looks great for our remodeled bathroom which has a very modern feel to it. The only drawback is it's difficult to find a T5 bulb with a warm color tone; the only one we found so far has 4500K color temperature, which is still too harsh for bathroom. Ideally, the T5 bulb should be 3000K.

throws off little light. The bulb portion is small. I used it for a bathroom and I would not recommend it.
By:Ming L. , Architect (91006)
The length options were perfect for us, as well as the high output light. Reasonably priced, simple lovely design. I do wish the light extended farther on either end, and I feel I need to search around for well priced bulbs with a warmer light tone, but these fixtures work well overall.

I looked all over the city and couldn't find a light long enough to fit over our large mirror. This was modern and affordable. It said shipping would be 8 weeks but really it only took about two weeks in the end. I love the light.

Great finish to my remodeling of my bathrooms!
By:David N. , Homeowner (Rochester New York)
I ordered two of these lights with the metal finish for either side of a medicine cabinet in my guest bath. Am really happy with how they look installed.
Please note that the bulb does not ship with this light.

Our bathroom addition is in a dormer and the makeup mirror took up the entire wall over the vanity. A simple single bulb fixture was required over the mirror, so I looked at every light.
It took a while for these to come in - perhaps to fix the problems described in the disaster below - but they were less expensive than other similar fixtures and far less fussy in their design.
We bought two to go over each counter in the angled ceiling and they are great - tons of light, soft because of the diffuser but bright enough to actually see, and they don't shout about themselves - I've got other things going on in this location.
