Beautiful Statement Piece

    Customer comments about Nelson Propeller Pendant:

    I love this light fixture! We have a Mediterranean-style home with mostly "transitional" decor, and it went wonderfully in my formal living room. This room never had an overhead fixture, so we had an electrician install the light and a wall dimmer switch. I get positive comments on the light all the time, it is a true statement piece.

      Delivered in perfect condition when promised. We love George Nelson designs and thought we would purchase the classic saucer but we fell in love with the propeller model in the store and had to have it! Not disappointed in any way!

        The Nelson propeller pendant looks fabulous in our newly remodeled kitchen. We chose modern pearl gloss cabinets that have clean, straight lines and the pendant complements the contemporary design and adds warmth and interest to our dining area. We were very pleased to find something we loved that was so reasonably priced.

        Great Room & Board experience

        By Diane

        from Sonoma County, CA

        Pros

        • Adequate light output
        • Great design

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Over dining table

          Customer comments about Nelson Propeller Pendant:

          Been wanting a Nelson lamp for a long time. Was hard choice between the more traditional styles and the propeller. The propeller definitely is more edgy. All my trim is off-white so the white starkness of the unlit lamp is still taking some getting used to. When lit, it is of course softer and warmer white, blending in beautifully.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The lamp came without the metal canopy that goes against the ceiling. I called Customer Service who answered immediately, checked on it, and got back to me promptly that it would be sent. I got it within 2 days I think. The customer service person sent several personalized emails to update me on the status AND another email after I'd received it -- just to confirm that I had received it and all was good. I was VERY impressed by the prompt and personalized customer service.

          Customer comments about Nelson Propeller Pendant:

          This light is so much more spectacular in person than a photograph can capture. I was super hesitant to purchase in that my husband did not like the light as pictured. Once he hung it, however, he changed his mind and loves it as much as I do. Buy it!

          Customer comments about Nelson Propeller Pendant:

          We had to bring in a professional electrician to install our light since we have a loft space with high ceilings. Also, we had to reroute wiring that used to be dedicated to a sconce. It was worth the trouble because it has a great look. It not only lights the room but it looks like a sculpture suspended in air.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was good. The packaging was good and secure too.

            Customer comments about Nelson Propeller Pendant:

            I bought this as one of 4 Nelson lamps to decorate and light my townhouse. The propeller lamp is the most attractive of the group because of the alternating wires defining its shape. It looks great in any light. Bright sunlight coming in through the window creates shading that shows off its sculptural quality. When used as a light source it takes on a different, but equally attractive character. It is a pleasure to have this simple and relatively inexpensive classic work of industrial design hovering above the dining room table.

                Great light! Interesting texturized rubber stretched over a metal framework. I thought it was going to be more of a paper substance, but this seems much more durable.
