Customer comments about Nelson Saucer 36 diam 14h Pendant:

This light looks fantastic. I had it installed by a master electrician, but it shorted out the next day. The electrician came back and discovered an electrical fault in the bulb assembly of the lamp, which he repaired. Unfortunately, this was a very expensive lamp counting the installation and repair costs.

    Customer comments about Nelson Saucer 36 diam 14h Pendant:

    I use this light over my dining room table. My house is small, but the dining room and kitchen are one room that is 27 x 17 ft., with a sloped ceiling that is 13 ft at the high side and 8 ft at the low side. I was afraid that the 36 inch Nelson Saucer would be too big, but it is not--it's fabulous. The room has only hard surfaces (quartz, wood, metal, glass) and I wanted a light that is soft and round and this one was perfect. It does not provide task lighting; by day it is a beautiful sculpture and in the evening and night it provides a lovely soft light that is adequate for most purposes. We hung the light 41" off the top of the dining table. The electrician says that is higher than usual, but we all agree it's perfect in the room. We put it on a dimmer switch, but that may not be necessary.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The salesperson (Alice) was very helpful and low-key. She encouraged me to get the bigger size after I described the room, and she was right. She assured me that I could return it if I didn't like it. She also cancelled the delivery fee that the warehouse was going to charge (without me asking) because she had told me there was no charge.

    The delivery folks came as scheduled, but all they had to do was bring it in the house. I wanted to keep it in the box in case I needed to return it.

    Customer comments about Nelson Saucer 36 diam 14h Pendant:

    Great classic light. My beefs are with the store: (1) Room and Board displays the light on cords much longer than the 6-foot cord that comes with the light, but they don't offer those for sale (and the matching longer cord proved very difficult to find), and (2) Room and Board charged for delivery, even though I made the purchase in the store and was more than willing to walk away with it. They insisted that it had to be shipped. I later found other places to buy the light that offered free shipping. Wish I had waited.

      Customer comments about Nelson Saucer 25 diam 10h Pendant:

      We purchased the light for a front hallway of a vacation house. It gives reasonable light, not the best, but pretty good. It looks nice but it came with a defect in the wires that form the shape. It was pushed in on the top and pushed out on the bottom. The electrician was able to shape it back to the way it was supposed to be, but it is still a little off. Although I am sure they would have replaced it, we had tried 3 different lamps in that spot, all with some issue and just didn't want to go through the trouble of returning/exchanging yet another item.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was excellent as always.

      Customer comments about Nelson Saucer 25 diam 10h Pendant:

      Wanted to give some character to our guest bedroom and the Nelson Saucer lamp was perfect! We had a professional electrician install it and also put a dimmer on the switch which I think makes it even better. Definitely not the cheapest light fixture but I think it was worth it based on the look and feel that it gives the room.

        The pendant looks great on and off. We were worried the light output would not be enough, but it is actually working out great. We are using a 100W replacement LED.

        The pendant arrived earlier than expected, and the packaging was great.
