    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.

              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.

                  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.
