The Cirque looks very attractive and the fit and finish are excellent. I was surprised, however, by how little light it produces. We got the version that takes two 40W halogen bulbs and, based on my prior experience with halogen lamps, I expected it to provide bright light without distinct color cast. In fact, however, the fixture gives off a dim, distinctly warm-toned glow. It's an o.k. choice if it's meant mainly to be decorative but not the right choice if you need a lot of light.

the glass is so opaque that it did not seem that enough light would pass through to sufficiently light up the area.

Beautiful design, excellent quality, but not very good for task light.

Light looks great and works well on a dimmer. Would highly recommend. Like the thickness of the glass. Not as bright as I expected.

This fixture was hung over a bar. It was easy to install and fits the area perfectly. A bit heavy but the quality is first rate. Very clean, crisp lines.

I needed a light in my shower that was a flush mount and waterproof. This product was one of only a few that filled this need and was perfect for my home.

The Cirque ceiling light helps give my condo a more modern look. I recently ordered two more for other areas of my place.

looks and functions well; easy to install
I am very happy with the look of the fixture. It also looks very beautiful in my shower. It is for a wet location and usually these fixtures are not very attractive. This one is!! I am very happy

Brought this for use in a bathroom, needed a surface mount light suitable for wet areas. Due to HVAC ducting in the ceiling a pot light was'nt possible. This light is compact has the neat contemporay look I wanted and with the LED option provides a super light output.

Attractive, low profile ceiling fixture with significant light output

We used these lights in our backyard cottage. The aluminum trim looks great on the douglas fir beam. The led color temp is warm and not harsh at all

We had very limited space for a tub/shower in the tiny little bathroom we built in our converted attic. Because of the roof angles we were unable to put a can light in our shower. That meant we had to search and search for a wet rated light that would work in the shower. We found this Cirque Ceiling Light and it was perfect. It looks good and works great. We are very pleased!

The Cirque is easy to install and of very high quality. The light for the unit I bought (the small size) is great for accent lighting. I used several over a wetbar and they look good. I especially like that they have a very low profile which helps when you have limited head-room to work with.

Nice contemporary light fixture. The glass is wonderfully heavy and dense and gives a nice effect when off or on. I used the small fixtures so they don't throw a lot of light but ganged together in a series they work very well. Very high quality and at a reasonable cost.

Light was just as described, nice quality, arrived quickly

The Cirque ceiling light is sleek and modern. The light gives off a beautiful glow in the room.

Note to purchasers: a full depth j-box is required for the LED transformer. A note about this would be helpful and should be on the spec sheet.

Beautiful glass shade with a modern edge. Simple unpretentious but with nice attention to detail.
By:Sue M. , Architect (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
In received the product only 3 days after ordering. It looks awesome in my newly renovated bathroom.
By:Petra D. , Homeowner (NY)
The LED version has a great glow. It would be a help for the website to provide better install specs for the transformer. I will use this light again.

I needed a low profile fixture for a bathroom with a low ceiling. The fixture has a mid-century vibe, but is versatile. Although it appears to have a crease around the perimeter of the glass, the glass is solid and quite heavy for its size. It is a great alternative to a boring can fixture.
By:Stephanie W. , Homeowner (San Francisco)
We specified this light fixture for one of our projects. We used it for two bathrooms. The simple design makes it perfect for a contemporary bath as well as a transitional bath. I would recommend it for future projects.
By:Roy G. , Architect (Washington, DC, USA)
I purchased two of these with the LED lamps and love the both of them. They provided excellent light, should last forever and are the most solidly built ceiling lights I have ever owned. I couldn't say enough about them. The smaller version of the light puts out way more light than I expected, but it works for me and you can install a dimmer if desired.
I will take them with me when I move since they should last a lifetime.

I was looking for a recessed lighting type minimal look when renovating a luxury apartment. These lights delivered 100%. The price might be big; but these little lights are made with quality. The base is metal, not plastic. And the diffuser is real thick glass. The light they deliver is a nice warm light. The only way I can tell they are LED is by how little they cost to operate.

Good light output. High quality materials. Very attractive fixture. Highly recommended.
