Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I've been looking for a hanging outdoor light for ages but the ones I've found have not been quite right. This light is perfect for our older colonial house and it really sets off the porch. It's well made with metal not plastic and was priced quite reasonably.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with product We are very happy with the product. the best thing is the bottom is open therefore no caught bugs! I do wish it was a little bigger however it was very easy to install and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Light We had searched stores locally with no luck and decided to try the internet. The Lighting Direct site featured so many varieties of fixtures that we were able to find several that would fit out needs. The one we chose looks great and gives plenty of illumination to the back porch. It was easy to mount and all the necessary parts were there and easily identifiable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation Challenge The installation directions said that it would be a 35 minute job. That time did not include a trip to Home Depot to buy the needed part which was not included with the light. The correct part was pictured in the directions, but a different one was in the package. Despite that problem, I am pleased with the quality and appearance of the lamp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with purchase I was extremely pleased with the light. 1) Solid construction, 2) Good size, 3 ) Easy to install. If there was any negative, it was the size of the plate that attaches to the ceiling box. I wish it was slightly larger. I purchased another plate that did the job. The builders of my home cut a wide margin around the electrical box leaving too big of a gap if I used the plate supplied. Not a fault of the light though. Shipment was quick and nothing was broken. Will order from this company again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Match! We selected this pendant for our porch to match existing lighting outside our garage. The new pendant matches perfectly, looks great, arrived quickly and at a great price. Can't ask for more than that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stand out from street This light is awesome I didnt expect it to be as big for the price. All my neighbors compliment us on the light and we look the way it makes our house stand out from street. Also, I was afraid my light would arrive broken and shaddered but it was well packed and eventhough outside of the box was damaged.I will definitely buy from this company again!
