Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skeptacular Canopy track lights with a 1930s look
Home Depot's Hampton Bay 3-lamp antique bronze canopy-base ceiling fixture is actually unique.
Hampton Bay is a subsidiary of Home Depot and a brand name for its lighting and ceiling fan products, (mainly known for the latter) and many of its product designs are proprietary. That's one reason this fixture is in a class by itself, but in this case, the design itself has not been imitated - which in this follow-the-crowd era of product marketing is surprising - despite it's fabulous appearance.
The project was the expansion of a tight, small closet into a walk-in by doubling its space. The old closet was lit with one old pull-chain porcelain fixture with one bare bulb. The bedroom the closet serviced was decorated as a bit of a 1930s/40s explorer's digs, replete with vintage travel posters, a tropical cane-bladed ceiling fan, and period furnishings.
The lighting requisites in the closet were several: 1) aimed lighting with three areas for specific illumination: two areas of double rod and shelving hanging apparel storage (one of which was the new extended bay,) and a set of bureau drawers with a small shelved nook above it (for sundries like shoe polish, lint and clothes brushes, a mending kit, and so on) above it. 2) a single fixture in the same general area of the original one to accomplish this, and 3) a fixture that would complement the esoteric look of the bedroom.
Initially the search was for linear track lighting to accomplish the three prerequisites, but finding anything that didn't look contempo proved vexing. The journey stopped suddenly when the Hampton Bay fixture came into view. It was modern, code-friendly, and a cinch to install, but it had the look of a 1930s canopy with swiveling, rotating lamps housed in miniature spotlight housings - think 1930s Hollywood film set. I was able to position the lamps exactly to my needs, the illumination was powerful, replacement lamps are easy to acquire, and it help make the closet match the bedroom admirably!
I checked other sources for similar fixtures to compare features and prices, but there simply WEREN'T any; not vintage, not vintage-look either. The Home Depot price was a bargain, and I ordered it for delivery via their website. It arrived quickly, in perfect shape, and installed like a breeze. Running line to a switch was equally easy, and shazam! - one more need off the closet (and bedroom) punchlist!

Throws so much light for three little bulbs! Fairly easy installation, looks neat.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Guffey missing parts already
Screw missing from one of the 3 light bulb holders... packing up and returning is a pain for such a small part. Seems to use metric screws (.7 I think, we'll see) and maybe I can get a machine screw that comes close, else I will have to pack and return.
Other than that, the finish is nice (on the shiny side, if you want real dull-ish antique bronze finish this is probably not for you), stiff but not heavy-duty metal housing, bulbs swivel in *roughly* a full horizontal circle, half circle arc vertically. Easy install, wire connectors provided.
I would normally recommend this, best for someone who wants a DIY, quick, no-frills light, with bright bulbs... but the missing parts makes it a "not recommend". It's so annoying because for about 3 cents more they could supply extra screws/washers in case something is stripped or missing, but nope, gotta go with barebones nowadays. If you can deal with little things, like missing screws and possibly returning it once or twice, then I do recommend this light.

Nice lights for the price and easy to install. We used four of them in our kitchen and they work well with our intended design.
