    Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Large Pendant:

    Hi Folks,

    I can't get over how AMAZING my Nelson Cigar pendent looks in my place near Palm Springs. The look is timeless, stylish and cool. I decided to 'go big' with the large fixture but wasn't sure how it would look in my dining room where the ceilings are 13 feet. It's now the focal point of the room. Changing the bulb is challenging, so a long life bulb is recommended.
    Thanks R&B for offering this beautiful retro fixture, free shipping made it all the more appealing.

      Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Large Pendant:

      I have a large cigar pendant hanging in the corner of the small living room in our funky 1958 ranch home. It's lovely! The scale is unexpected in a small space, and it puts out a lovely, warm, soft light. I wanted one of these for years, and I'm so glad I finally made the investment. We didn't hard wire it, so it is extremely easy to install and move (for cleaning and painting walls!)

      A classic design that worked so well with our 1920's Cape interior. We wanted a modern hallway light and after looking at so many over designed lights we chose the Nelson. Looks beautiful.

        We placed this light in our entryway, so it is one of the first things people see when they come into our home. It sets our mid-century modern tone off perfectly. My husband added a dimmer to the switch, which makes it even better! I would recommend the Nelson light to anyone with mid century modern or contemporary taste. Classic piece!

        We have a small space and didn't want to commit to hard wiring. So we took the lamp to an electrician who installed a switch. It was easy and affordable to do. The lamp looks beautiful in a corner of our living room, but now we can easily relocate the lamp if we redecorate or move.

        Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Medium Pendant:

        We've always admired the G. Nelson lighting. And, when we saw the lights at Room & Board--with a promotion nonetheless--we ordered the medium cigar pendant for the landing on our stairwell going downstairs. The space made installation trickier than usual, but otherwise a standard install. We also found a bulb with the recommended wattage was too bright for us/our space; the cigar seemed to glow a bit. We went with a lower wattage and the light immediately warmed the space as intended. A contractor walking downstairs with a pipe hit the lamp by accident, and cleaning the fabric can be tricky; we weren't sure how much pressure we could apply to clean the area AND not leave a mark on the fabric (over cautious, we ultimately succeeded in cleaning the area, but you need patience).It's taken 1.5 years to find a light for that area, and EVERYONE who sees it comments on its beautiful, clean, simple lines and the ways it compliments the space. We couldn't agree more.

            Customer comments about Nelson Cigar Medium Pendant:

            This pendant is even more stunning in person. I absolutely adore the design and it blends perfectly even with our classical kitchen table. It is truly timeless and adds a much-needed focal point to our larger kitchen. It hangs in front of a large picture window and when you approach our home you can see this fabulous light. I can't say enough great things about it. Super easy to install....lightweight and delicate which would be a concern if it was in an area where people would be touching it often. I'm glad we put it over the kitchen table rather than as a standing lamp for that reason alone.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was another MAJOR PLUS. Free shipping on lighting fixtures....where else could you get that beside Room & Board?? It was delivered promptly and packaged impeccably to ensure no damage to product. Thank you R&B...we'll be back for all our decorating needs!
