This is a nice looking polished chrome light. Other than the glass globes, it comes in one piece with no assembly required. The light fixture seems a little flimsy and the glass globes are thin, but it was easy to install and looks real good. Hopefully it will last may years. It is shown in these pics with three 3000k LED, 9W bulbs which put out plants of light. The warning label says 100w Max, I will presume that is each socket. But with LED lights, it really doesn’t matter.

I installed this light fixture into a bathroom that I’m currently remodeling. The chrome finish on the light gives it a modern look and fits well in my spare bathroom. This light is pretty easy to install if you’ve ever done a little bit of electrical work and have a few electrical tools. It took me about 30-40 mins to complete from start to finish. This is a nice light and looks great!

We need a new light fixture for our downstairs parlor (bathroom) that matched the rooms teal and chrome theme. This three bulb fixture provides nice light, fits the regular wall mounted metal fixture box. Minimal assembly. We used frosted Leb bulbs as the mounts pointed down for use. I guess technically you could install the other way up, but we liked the bulbs pointing down.

I really like the styling of this 3-light fixture from Designers Fountain. he fixture is lighter in weight than I expected it would be, and is lighter than it looks, but is well constructed of metal with a highly polished and shiny chrome finish. The fixture has 3 white frosted bell shaped glass shades, each of which is held on with a threaded metal ring. The base of the shades is wide, allowing ample space for hands to thread the metal retaining ring onto the ceramic socket. The shades can be mounted up towards the ceiling or towards the floor. What’s unique about this light is that the depth of the shades can be adjusted to a maximum depth of 10-inches by adjusting a set screw in the escutcheon housing, to account for a wall-mount medicine cabinet where a shallow light might not reach over the cabinet. There is however no mention of this feature or the set screw that needs to be loosened and tightened to adjust the depth in the installation instructions. The lamp sockets are ceramic and accept standard bulbs up to 100 watts each, for a total of up to 300 watts, which is a good amount of light output especially for a small bathroom. Installation instructions, a wall mounting plate, and wire nuts are included. This fixture must be hardwired. It’s a standard 2-wire installation, black, white, and a ground. My light came with wire nuts wrapped tightly with electrical tape, with extra wire pig tailed. I suspect this was to make up for a short fall in wire that would be needed if the depth of the shades was fully-extended out. While the installation instructions could be better written, I’m very satisfied with the appearance and performance of this lighting fixture, and highly recommend it.

I installed the DESIGNERS FOUNTAIN OPAL ESSENCE 3-LIGHT CHROME WALL MOUNT VANITY LIGHT in a guest bathroom. I liked that it could be installed with dimmable LED bulbs as the amount of light needed varies with different tasks.The spacing of the lights makes for a great over-all spread of the light, which also lights up the entire bathroom. And the globes are quite attractive in appearance.

This is a decent looking light, but the installation is terrible. The backstrap comes screwed to the fixture from the factory, because the the wiring and taped wired nuts are pre-assembled behind that backstrap. You can adjust the strap, but you have to find some way to tighten it. I used some stranded wire to wrap around the threads and then tighten the backstrap to it. It took some trial and error, and it's still not perfect. The fixture comes with an offset screwdriver to install the screws that hold the backstrap to the mounting box. The cover is pre-attached, and slides into place after the fixture is mounted and tightened. But since it is pre-attached, you have to use the offset screwdriver to get the screws in. It's a half-hour or longer process to just put the two screws in. The glass shades are a little small. The bulbs stick out from the bottom, no matter the angle you look at it. Overall, I don't love it. Changing it is going to be a pain, but it's almost inevitable because it's just not a great light.

Nice light with glass globes. I like how you can reverse the light so that the lights shine down rather than up. This allows it to throw more lighting into the bathroom. The installation was done by my electrician who said the instructions were not that great and the engineering wasn't that great for installing. The box included a little "allen wrench-type" of flat head and phillips head screwdriver because the space you have to hook up the base to the wires and screws is extremely limited. The aggravating part of that is having to keep that tool in a safe place so that you have it available when you want to replace the light fixture. There also was no way to tighten the "cross bar" to keep it from leaning down on either side. The globes are glass but are not too heavy for this fixture so that was nice. It takes standard base bulbs. I used three 6W LED (40 Watt equivalent) bulbs in warm white light which is more than ample to light up the bathroom. The overall look of this fixture is nice. I still have to paint the wall where it was covered by my previous fixture but I've included pictures so you can see the fixture and included instructions

Beautiful light
Customer review from logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently decided to change my light fixtures in my bathroom. I like how light it is, and how easy it was for me to install. The chrome is nice looking and so are the shades. Well be trying other styles from this company.
