Rated 2 out of 5Â by Guillemot Does not sit flush!!! Poor design/assembly/quality
The unit does not sit flush to the ceiling. The threaded rods that bolt the two light sockets to the base each protrude beyond the bottom of the base. This requires that you drill two additional holes in your ceiling (which are hidden by the base) to receive them in order to push the base tight to the ceiling. I have two of these lights and they each have the same problem.
One of the ceramic light sockets also was not attached to its base. I had to pull it out and re-fasten it with the decorative nut that had fallen off of it in shipping.
Once these problems were fixed the light went up fine and looks good.

This product is very difficult to install. The installation method combined with the fiberglass insulation makes it almost imposible to get a good flush mount.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by fixerupper Very Poor Quality!
Beware of this very poor quality fixture. Housing does not sit flush with included bracket (standardized bracket)- if you want to use this as intended then better set some time aside to modify it to fit.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by ct36 Looks nice, but poor quality
Looks nice. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, the quality is poor, and it will not sit flush without some modification. I had to trim the excess pipe nipple/threaded rod for the center and both light sockets, and even then I had to scrap the mounting bracket and just screw the fixture directly to the ceiling box. The panes of glass are all held in individually by metal clips. Most of the clips are loose, though, and do not do a good job of holding the glass. A few dabs of RTV silicone in the corners of each pane (not visible from the outside when installed) secured the glass for me.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by scruff DOES NOT SIT FLUSH
Poor design. Not a simple Installation like it should be. The name states Flushmount, But if you actually want it to sit flush against the ceiling that requires more modification. If you don't modify to accommodate the hardware under the base there will be a gap between the ceiling and base and look like a poor installation job. If I had to do it all over again I would have read the reviews first not bought this.
