      Its gorgeous and will look great once we install it. However, we are currently letting it air out in the garage because there is a strong smell on it.

          Customer comments about Nelson Medium Criss-Cross Saucer Pendant:

          I cannot always afford the beautifully designed, high quality furniture that I love, but this pendant lamp is so affordable and captures the simple beauty that I desire. I've now begun purchasing all of my furniture from Room and Board and wish I'd discovered them earlier so that some of my other key pieces were from R&B, too.

            Customer comments about Nelson Saucer Medium Pendant:

            The light is the finishing touch to my midcentury styled combination living and dining area. Have it over the Bradshaw Room and Board dining table. Makes the room fun! Used a dimmer switch and LED light bulb. Try different LED bulbs (make sure first that it can be returned to the store) to find the right light that makes the saucer-shaped shade glow. Highly recommend the light. Tried the smaller version but not enough size and light for a dining area that is in a larger room.

              Service and delivery comments:

              There was a slight glitch in scheduling delivery, it was scheduled to arrive too soon (has anyone ever said that before?). Once we got that straightened out it arrive exactly as scheduled.

                  As expected, this fixture is perfect! I have it over my dining room table and I have a dimmer on it. It puts off just the right amount of light. And, the view from the street through the dining room window is great.

                    As soon as I opened the box, I could smell a plastic odor. After a while I did not notice it, but my husband could still smell it.

                    The best thing about this light fixture is the beautiful glow. I generally dislike overhead lighting but this fixture is an exception. It provides a lot of light without being annoying. Great style, too.
