    We got two of these as part of a floor sale after eyeballing them for some time. They look perfect over the dining table, and R&B staff was excellent in helping make sure we had what we need to install the lights. We love the lights.

        Customer comments about Nelson Cigar 14 diam 33h 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.

          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 12 diam 21h 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.
