Very good, simple but not hired. Easy to install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Dutchboy Modern update to our powder room
I am happy with this fixture. It showed up just days after I ordered it, no issues with the packaging or the fixture. Everything came in one piece - no damage. The fixture was easily installed in a short amount of time. I was concerned because I saw other reviews that said it came with screws that were too long. I found this not to be the case. Instead it's a case of poor instructions and DIY'ers that don't understand how these fixtures are supposed to be assembled. The fixture comes with two screws that are "too long" to accommodate any possible depth the electrical junction box may be recessed into the wall (including varying depths for drywall, ceramic tile, back-set into the wall cavity). The trick is to screw the two screws into the mounting plate to what is the proper depth for the screws to reach the decorative nuts that hold the fixture in place. You then take the two hex nuts and screw them on the screws until they are tightly against the mounting plate (this step is not included in the instructions). This is called "double-nutting". It secures the screw to the plate at the proper depth and locks it in place. Once this is done, installation is fairly simple. I mounted the fixture with the glass facing down so they wouldn't become dust-collectors, plus I like the down-look better. In the picture you can see that I used the matching ceiling light as well.

This light makes a nice difference in our bathroom. The style fits perfectly with what we are trying to accomplish as we update. We were somewhat concerned with the "linen" finish on the light covers, but it looks great.
I highly recommend the light, but the install, well, read on.
Installation was problematic. There are two long bolts that hold it to the round wall plate. The bolts go in the same holes as the ones that hold the plate to the wall box so you can't use those holes to connect the plate to the box since the holes in the plate are threaded for the bolt. I ended up pulling the nails out of the wall box so I could rotate it. Luckily some of the slots on the supplied plate are at the same distance from the center of the plate as the threaded holes for the bolts that came with it so I could use them to fasten the plate to the rotated box.
The bolts that come with the light are too long if you completely thread them to the plate. We discovered this after the fixture has been connected electrically so we had to take it back off, shorten the distance they screwed in and put it back up.
There are two nuts that come with it that are meant to be used to tighten the bolt against the plate so the bolt won't turn when you tighten the cap over the light when you put it up. You could probably let the bolt turn as you screwed on the cap, but that idea made nervous. I want a solid connection. The directions do not show this nut in the drawing so you have to realize what it's for without help.
This light fixture (3 light) is heavy. I wouldn't attempt to install it without a second person helping.
The directions are the worst I've ever seen. No text, just pictures that don't show the nut.
So, yes, buy it if you like it. Just be prepared for an install that is harder than most.

Nice quality. Glass is heavy and substantial. Carefull on lightbulb size. Mine were big and they stick out.

Not a lot of clean, attractive, non-frilly options out there at a reasonable cost. This hit the mark for me. An attractive complement to my contemporary bathroom. Installed with a dimmer switch - the range from dim to bright is exceptional.
