After an internet search for an unobtrusive, simple but elegant modern fixture I found this Italian design to be just perfect. In neutral and white it throws a ward light with one 60 watt incandescent bulb.

I bought the 20" for the 2nd floor ceiling in the foyer. The clean lines and modern design makes it a versatile general lighting at a very reasonable price.

I installed two Drum ceiling lights on a dimmer in our entry hall, and one in our master bath. The quality and design of this light is outstanding! I am always amazed at how easily a well designed light is to install. The design is timeless. The quality is on par with Artemide & Flos!

We have placed this Drum Ceiling Fixture in bedrooms and hallways - the fixture serves our desire to update this older house and shift from it's charming folksy to a more clean, modern feel.
By:Sally B. , Homeowner
clean lines, very simple design.
great choice for a ceiling mount when you don't want to make a big statement but need a lot of light.
it's actually hard to find good quality, simple ceiling mounts with well-designed details that are affordable. this one fits the bill nicely. I use it in all my projects.
comes in a variety of sizes, which is a bonus.

Love the light; exactly as displayed. Perfect lighting for a bedroom. Also, product came immediately.

Love this light - beautiful, sturdy, arrived undamaged. But where are the installation instructions? I know, it's pretty simple, but that detail kept me from giving 5 stars.

As advertised - nice bright light. We set them up on dimmers. You can see the lightbulb shapes but if you're going more for functionality vs. aesthetics this fits the bill (and the design is not offensive - bordering on boring in the clear/white).

Haven't actually installed it yet but I am pleased with the quality of glass and the base construction. As I am not an electrician but know ,to varying degrees, how to install a light fixture - so long as I'm supplied with directions - it is a bit irritating that no directions are supplied with this product. Also, as I have yet to install the unit, the jury is still out on the quality of even light distribution I will get from the light. I'll try and write again when I install - as I have found the other reviews quite helpful in my shopping experience

This light looks fantastic in our "spa" bathroom. Its clean uninterrupted lines blend effortlessly and give great light. I would definitely purchase this light again.

Just purchased this light for my nyc apartment and I love it. It's a great source of light and it's also very sleek looking. Couldn't be happier.

I bought this light for my small kitchen, it looks good, I chose the blue (favorite color). The light is modern and low key, which is what I wanted. Overall I was very satisfied with this purchase! If I had a complaint it would be that there were no instructions, so if you're a homeowner, you need someone that knows what they're doing to install.

I've gotten a bunch of compliments on this fixture. I actually have several in various colors mounted in a row. Make sure people can get back from them a bit to appreciate the colorful bases. Great outside or inside kids rooms or a long hallway.
By:Phelim D. , Homeowner (New York City)
We put one in each of our kids rooms, and they work and look
great. The 2x75w is just right for a room roughly 12x12, but wouldn't go smaller.

Nice and clean look. Fast shipping from company.
By:OS , Architect (New York)
These look great.

Nice simple clean light. Very happy with purchase.

I would recommend you draw out the dimensions of this light. Its actual dimensions are nothing like what it appears in the pictures. In reality it is small!!! Returned it...

We recently installed this light in our small-ish kitchen which has details from many eras which adds difficulty to our choice of fixture. As much as I really like the fixture I do have 2 small gripes which is why I'm not giving it 5 stars: 1) I wish I did not see the intensity of the 2 bulbs as much as I do 2) I wish it was brighter. Having said that, this light singlehandedly cleaned up and simplified the kitchen--an aspect which was our top priority and I'm happy with our decision.

This fixture fit our application perfectly. In fact I am ordering another one!
By:Brian M. , Architect (Chicago)
The fixture is exactly what we wanted and the customer service could not have been better.
By:Marilyn U. , Designer (Carmel Valley, Callifornia)
This fit my clients needs perfectly. Nice light without glare. Very modern looking without being cold. We used it in a bedroom.
By:Tricia , Designer (Lajolla, CA)
I purchased this light to replace a ceiling fan in a rather large room and was concerned the footprint of the 20" light was not going to support the space as the only light in the room. It turns out the light is more than capable of that as well as offering a very warm diffuse type of light that works very well in a larger space. I am going to buy another one for a different room that has similar needs.

Simple design, very nice!
By:Terry , Homeowner (TN)
Perfect for a small room. Very subtle with very clean lines.
The only things is that this may not give you the best brightness if you are really looking for something to lighten the room significantly
By:Eun L. , Homeowner (LA, CA)
Compact. Neutral but not boring. This is a terrific choice if you want an attractive fixture that doesn't cost the earth and won't offend anyone. We're renters leaving it behind when we move. The downside is that, as other have mentioned, it doesn't give off quite the light you might expect. The smaller of the two double bulb fixtures really only will take 2 60watt bulbs -- not the 75w listed in the drop down purchasing bar. (Y-lighting needs to fix this; the specs are clearly listed on the fixture itself!!) So if you need an explosion of light, this isn't it, but if you're willing to compromise a bit of brightness for well priced style, you won't be disappointed.
