I got exactly what I thought I was getting. I will be ordering more from YLighting very soon!!:):)

It looks like a contractor's extension cord, but I'm giving it four stars because it's my fault for ordering it in orange. Aside from that, the build quality is pretty excellent - the metal fixture itself is hefty and heavy gauge. My only real objection is that the cord itself is a bit kinky - it doesn't fully straighten out when hanging vertically. Perhaps blow drying it or heat-gunning it would help, by softening the rubber, but I haven't tried. Also, as a note, it's a little hard to figure out which conductor is the neutral - hint: it's the one with the white thread inside the insulation.

Love this light! We are using it as a sculptural element in the entry of our showroom. I ordered the 16' cord which allows us to loop the cord and make an interesting visual. The only disappointment is with the ordange color. It looked too much like the color of an extension cord. I am now trying out the blue color.

There were very few choices for a simple pendant bulb. Multiple choices of cord color add to the design element.

The product when hanging does not let the wire nicely hang as a straight line

We're using these pendants in a vanity. Since our countertop is walnut, we wanted the focus on the wood. We dropped the lights to just above head height and used halogen floods to wash the counter and sink in a soft light.

Purchased two SoCo pendants for my powder room reno. I was attracted by the shape of the modern socket, the flexibility & finish of the cord, and the range of colors. We chose the modern pendant in a satin nickel with an orange cord. The ceiling plate covers the junction box without issue; we've seen cheaper imitations that barely covered North American electrical settings, leaving a gap between the fixture and the drywall. We bought two sets of bulbs: the half chrome Bulbrite bulbs and the GE Faceted (Crystal) bulbs. While the half chrome bulbs provide a sleek, modern finish to the pendant, the crystal bulbs adapt the pendants for a more traditional setting.

Exactly what I was looking for to complete a light fixture I designed. I thought it was a little pricey but I looked EVERYWHERE and anything cheaper was of notably poor quality. I wish it came with a plug option rather than just the canopy to be hardwired.

The quality was better than expected and I would recommend this product to anyone, especially at this price point.

Simply elegant and the details are all worked out.

Ordered the blue cord with the modern fixture. I found the directions simple to follow. When I had questions, because I'm kind of a novice, Y-Lighting answered them and put me quickly in touch with the manufacturer as well for additional information.
The fixture is in now and it looks great. Everyone actually likes it! Which doesn't happen often in our house :-)
Thanks y-lighting for the great selection, quick delivery, and prompt responses when I needed them.
