Saucer Pendant

By T

from Iowa

Style Mid-century modern

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy to change bulb
  • Great design

Cons

  • Limited light output

Best Uses

    Customer comments about Nelson Saucer Medium Pendant:

    Fixture itself is high quality and looks perfect. Mounting cover plate is a bit goofy, but figured out how to shorten cord and secure the plate. Wish there was an option to have multiple bulbs to achieve more lumens.

          Customer comments about Nelson Saucer Medium Pendant:

          The Nelson saucer pendant has been an amazing touch to our living room. This was my first time to do any hardwiring and took about 30 minutes, from removing the existing ceiling fan to installing the pendant. The pendant provides enough light to use as a primary source, while still providing a soft ambiance to the room.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Free UPS shipping was a breeze. Received the pendant in about 4 business days.
